About Cariton

Cariton Retreat

Cariton Retreat is a secluded 18th century farmhouse set among the sunflowers & vines in the heart of the Gascon countryside We are open to all as a guesthouse & wellbeing retreat


Secluded But Not Remote

Relaxing by the pool or looking out over the vines at breakfast, you feel as if you are many miles away from civilisation, yet we are just walking distance to the beautiful and bustling medieval village of Montreal du Gers. In fact 3 of France’s official Les Plus Beaux Villages are located within a 45 minute cycle or 10 minute drive of the retreat

Wine & Yoga

Mat (winemaker & wine educator) and Effie (yoga instructor, Chinese medicine practitioner & massage therapist) have spent many years working in our respective fields and at the retreat we can offer our guests various activities, treatments, tastings and tours.

A Place to Relax

From lounging by the swimming pool to toasting yourself by the wood fire… despite the charm of the wider local area, it may be hard to leave the retreat…

A Place to be Active

As a regular yoga retreat we have plenty of space & facilities to practice. Beyond we are surrounded by miles of beautiful, gently rolling countryside ideal for walking, running & cycling. The Chemin de Compostela passes by less than 1km from us. We can also arrange bike hire for exploring the local area.
