WELCOME TO MAISON ILA
A house of healing in the serenity, light and warmth of the Pyrenees Aude region of France, near the beautiful cities of Carcassonne and Toulouse. This small yet spacious haven of peace has been recently reinvented into a joyous bespoke wellbeing retreat for physical, emotional and spiritual recovery.
With an innocent, old-fashioned charm, this is a laidback hideaway with a touch of magic. A horse whisperer lives in the village, the sky is Pyrenees pure, the air smells of jasmine and the fresh aroma of herbs. There’s buried treasure in the garden and warm sacred thermal springs merge in the well.
“Maison ila is a place of visions, dreams, forgiveness, expansion. The air is energising, the earth undisturbed, the people kind. To be here is to rediscover open skies, the sun, the soft spirit of an ancient land. Nature is unreservedly herself and happy. When we tap into this energy we start to feel better. That’s healing”.
Denise Leicester, owner of Maison ila
