Pilgrims'Nest, a travellers' haven

About this campspace #s001873

The Pilgrims' Nest is an off grid travellers' haven, situated 35km SE of Carcassonne in a natural and mountainous surrounding in the heart of the green Corbières Mountains at an altitude of 712m between cedar and beech forests. The air is clean and pure and radiates peacefulness.
The place itself is fed by clear spring water. Electricity is provided by solar and wind power, and nature grows a wealth of herbs everywhere. This is the place to be if you like a quiet, pure and natural environment, far away from the noise of roads and towns.
The campsite is on several terraces just above the house, in the shade of some cedar and Douglas fir trees. There's a tap with natural spring water, a hot water tub (the water heated by a wood fire underneath the tub), an open fireplace on another terrace nearby, and a 'sunset terrace' with a beautiful view. There's also a big shelter with a fully equipped outdoor summer kitchen and a 3m long picnic table, but no electric fridge.
The bathroom is adjacent to the house, the shower is in a separate wooden cabin, the water heated by solar power (or by gas if there's not enough sunshine). Breakfast with home made bread is optional (6,-€). Mobile phone network connection may be limited to certain spots on the property. Note that the nearest shops are in Limoux, 22km down hill. There is no public transport.
Apart from a place to stay the "Pilgrims' Nest" is also a place of inner transformation, exchange and sharing, open to all pilgrims, travellers, wanderers, backpackers and soul seekers on the road, and to all who travel consciously their inner path of evolution. It also welcomes everyone who needs a few days or weeks of rest, reflection or energy recharging. The energy of the place is introspective and highly transformative. It leaves no one untouched.
Attractions in the area are the Cité of Carcassonne, one of the most preserved medieval fortified cities in Europe, Rennes-le-Château from the Da Vinci Code, the hot springs at Rennes-les-Bains, the numerous Cathar castle ruins, a beautiful lake for swimming at nearby Arques, the interesting villages of Lagrasse, Alet-les-Bains, and Saint Hilaire, the natural beauty of the Corbières Mountains and the Pyrenees, and the Mediterranean Sea not too far away.
