Ayurvedic treatments:

During this week, let the age-old wisdom of Ayurveda and the power of its traditional treatments lead you to deep relaxation.


Château de La Pierre is a 14-hectare estate just a stone's throw from the Forêt de Tronçais. The estate is surrounded by centuries-old oak trees that infuse the landscape with a soothing energy.
The castle 's foundations date back to the late Middle Ages, and the authentic style is reflected in the woodwork and moldings with their Indian Yoga andAyurvedic influences.


The cuisine will be 100% organic, vegetarian and based onAyurvedic principles.
You'll enjoy Indian Dal with expertly blended spices, basmati rice with cardamom, homemade sprouts and many other Ayurvedic dessert delights.

At Château de La Pierre, we try to make the detox experience as enjoyable as possible, with our six-flavor cuisine following seasonal influences and adapting to individual needs.
You can sip herbal teas or cold infusions of fresh herbs all day long, to vibrate with Prana.

Detailed program

Purvakarma cure: gentle detoxification and rebalancing

This cure allows you to take a complete break from the daily grind. It eliminates toxins from the digestive system (ama), strengthens the metabolism (agni), regenerates body tissues (dhatus) and rebalances metabolic energies (doshas - Vata, Pitta, Kapha). This new-found well-being can be sustained over time by continuing the Dinacharya ( Ayurvedic rituals and routines) learned during the cure.

  • Six full days of treatment immersed in the peace and serenity of the estate
  • Seven nights' for ample rest before and after treatments
  • Individual assessment consultation to define each person's care program
  • Different treatments every day, complementary and tailor-made, in the purest Ayurvedic tradition.
  • A vegetarian, organic, home-cooked diet based on the principles of Ayurveda
  • A gentle yoga class, affordable for all, every morning
  • At least one activity per day: Forest bath, Spa outing, Yoga Nidra, guided meditations, Ayurvedic diet workshops and Dinacharya (Ayurvedic longevity rituals)


Example of a day's treatment program:

7:30 am: Yoga: singing, meditation, breathing, warm-ups, gentle postures
9 am: Breakfast: fruit, porridge of the day, slices of artisanal organic bread
10 am: rest time in the park
11:30 am: Ayurvedic treatment
1 pm: Ayurvedic meal
3 pm: Forest walk or free time
7 pm: Ayurvedic meal
8:30 pm: Vibratory meditation

During the day, you can stroll through the park, relax in the sun or shade on the deckchairs, swim in the ponds of the nearby Forêt de Tronçais, walk in the forest or in the bocage. Put your phone aside and enjoy the absolute serenity of the surroundings.
