21st Sanctuary 


21st Sanctuary has found its home. An old farm house built in 1849 nestled in 4.5 acres of wooded land providing an ultra discreet retreat venue. 

You can fly into Bordeaux (all year round )or Bergerac (seasonal) and in just an hours drive/taxi ride you can be making the most of your precious time relaxing by the pool or exploring the grounds or maybe getting ready to join a yoga class or learn about mindfulness meditation.

Initial refurbishment will be to bring to life the indoor yoga space and create some extra showers and toilets and once complete we will be able to sleep upto 8 people inside and more in glamping tents outside for the warmer season. We are just over an hours drive to the Atlantic coast boasting some of Europe's finest stretches of sandy beaches and great surfing.

 It is intended that this will operate as an air bnb experience initially. You can dip your toe in and experience just a long weekend or mid week stay at a Buddhist inspired retreat without being committed to full week.

Work will continue on developing this amazing venue, with more accommodation, workshop space, outdoor yoga shala, sauna, Japanese hot pool*.   

The facilities provided will be unique and for group leaders who wish to use the facilities so will the terms of booking and reservation.

Because we will function as a non profit organisation the terms of use are unlike any other retreat facility.With a truly flexible deposit system and an individually agreed minimum occupancy, the risk of  having to cancel your retreat or workshop is greatly reduced.This business centred approach allows you to work on getting clients and numbers to grow your business without the headaches.Our mission is to help you build your heart based business of helping others.

We work on honesty, trust and openness and the venue will  be open on a B.I.R.O.S basis 

1). By Invitation. You may receive a direct invitation to further your business plans arising from a chance meeting with the retreat owner at a festival, event or conference because your passion, drive, openness fits with our ethos. You just never know who you are talking to....
