About this campspace #s002808

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.\nThe 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.\nThe campsite is on a terrace just above the house, in the shade of some old Douglas fir trees. There's a tap with natural spring water, a fireplace for camp fires on a nearby terrace, and a 'sunset terrace' with a beautiful view. For children this is a great place, full of pathways to discover and a corner with swings. There's also a big shelter with an outdoor summer kitchen and a 3m long picnic table. There's a large indoor activity space inside the barn in case of bad weather conditions (but not always available).\nThe bathroom is adjacent to the house, the shower is outdoors, the water heated by solar power. There's also an outdoor hot water tub, the water heated by wood fire. There is a second kitchen in the house which you can also use to do your own cooking, but there’s no electric fridge. Breakfast with home made bread is optional (6,- €), and a vegetarian lunch or dinner can be ordered (12,- €). Wi-fi internet is available in the house (but not unlimited). Mobile phone network connection may also be limited to certain spots on the property. Note that the nearest shops are in Limoux, 22km down hill. There is no public transport.\nApart 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.\nAttractions 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.\nChildren -12y pay half price.
