Give a retreat

Are you interested in organising a retreat in a magical environment, in the heart of the land of the Cathars in the South of France? If so, then we – Robert and Monique – would love to share our location with you.
Whether you are preparing a silent/transformation/yoga or detox retreat, a (business) bootcamp, a writer’s retreat or maybe a meditation retreat: you are most welcome!


Terra Nova Center is equipped with 7 single bedrooms, 7 double bedrooms and a double-bedroom teacher’s facility as well as a guestroom lodging that can facilitate 4 people at the same time. All bedrooms are equipped with ensuite bathrooms.


The Center also houses two working spaces: one of which is the stunning and authentic workshop area. And on the first floor you will find a very powerful meditation/workshop facility overlooking the rolling fields surrounding Terra Nova itself.


All-in all, Terra Nova Center itself can cater to the needs of 25 participants, 2 teachers/guides as well as a resident cook.

And since we cooperate with a nearby Bed & Breakfast facility, we can also receive groups up to 40 participants.


Since we like to include as many groups as possible, we also welcome groups upwards of 10 participants, or even less when you are planning a more exclusive retreat.

The immediate environment of Terra Nova is breathtaking. Its center is at the heart of the spiritual region of the Cathars. A mere fifteen minute-car ride takes you to the medieval fortress town of Mirepoix. The Pyrenees are only a 45 minute-drive away, while such Cathar strongholds as beautiful as Carcassonne will take only 30 minutes by car.
The Mediterranean Sea is just 60 minutes to the south.


Toulouse is an international airport with direct connections to the majority of Euprope’s largest airports. Another nearby, smaller, airport is Carcassonne.

Terra Nova has made several arrangements with local taxi companies concerning transfers to and from Toulouse Airport. It will take you approximately 60 minutes by car to get to Toulouse Airport and 30 minutes for Carcassonne. The latter is also very well accessible by train.


Terra Nova offers vegetarian/vegan catering. The center is equipped with a professional kitchen and dining room to cater for the participants.

All dietary and catering-related wishes or needs can be met.

The rates

Rates are subject to several factors. These could be the number of participants, the possible need for catering, special wishes, and of course the duration of the stay itself. Our quotes are therefore always tailor-made. For more information, please send us an email on

We will happily take you up on the challenge of working together to co-create the most optimal retreat that you can imagine. We love thinking with you in every possible way and are looking forward to working with you. Welcome to the New Earth. Welcome to Terra Nova.


Review Yvonne Toeset

I have no words to describe my first experience at Terra Nova other than magnificent.

Having no clue as to what I could expect, I had decided to just go and live the experience. The location, the center, the environment are all so much inviting that I completely felt at home on day one even. The area exudes a sense of safety that allows for space to find out more about yourself and to really show yourself. This is also made possible by the Terra Nova team and its hosts Robert and Monique. Robert’s meditation sessions were very powerful and led me to a deeper layer within me. The safety in the group was at its maximum level, allowing everyone involved to take the necessary steps, each in his/her own way.

I feel very grateful for Robert inviting me to host EFT retreats at Terra Nova. To me, it feels like the logical outcome of our cooperation, while at the same time I consider it as stepping into a new direction. I hope that my energy will further enhance the energy of Terra Nova.

Review Mark Ringnalda


Although far too short, I have fully enjoyed three days of love shared by both the team and the location. The peace at Terra Nova felt like coming home. The workshops were wide-ranging and enlightened with beautiful insights. The view resembled walking into a painting. Robert and Monique and their team of lightworkers made me feel wonderful. I am definitely returning to enjoy the Terra Nova Vortex.
