The Place

Nestled in the middle of a 7-hectare estate of greenery lies Le Cabeque.

The house was built in 1866 by the great-grandfather of Jacques, the current owner. Originally a breeding and cultivation farm. The now free land regularly hosts horses, wild pigs and of course the two miniature donkeys, Coton and Jackpot, the mascots of the place.  Le Cabeque is located on a hill, over looking the endless green surrounding countryside and surrounded by a large garden with its olive tree and its cypresses, lavenders and herbs, meadows strewn with oak trees, and an unobstructed view of  Cordes-sur-Ciel in the distance. This peaceful setting is ideal for retreating and allows space for just being with ones true nature. Presenting an opportunity to take a break from the intensity of an everyday hectic life. Welcome.  

 

Activities and Excursions 

Cordes-Sur-Ciel.

The town of Cordes-Sur-Ciel is a picturesque medieval town, with a rich and fascinating history.

The meaning of its name is strings above the sky and quite right to the name, it often looks like the city is hovering over the clouds. The city itself offers a cozy atmosphere of small cobble streets, with quirky corners and interesting shops, Cafe's and restaurants, galleries and museums. It is full of music and hosts two large music festivals a year.

 

Horse sanctuary.

Within walking distance from our place is Erwin Van Der Veele beautiful horse sanctuary.

This is a therapeutic center that shelter horses that needs a new home for various reasons and this place gives them a second oppurtunity in life for a loving home. Erwin Van Der Veele is an equine educator and specialist in rehabilitation using gentle and natural methods based on behavioural observation and respect for the nature of horses.

Meeting the horses in the sanctuary is an exciting and mystical encounter and we have been invited to come and meditate and walk among these very speciel beings.This is an extreme privilige and a very profound experience.

Southern France would not be sourthern France without wine tasting. The lands are covered in wine yards and it is a speciel and beautiful sight. We will visit a yard in the Gailliac region and here we will learn all about making wine and of course end the trip with also tasting the wine. It will be possible to buy wine to bring back home.
