Next Open Day Event 10th April

Updated: Mar 29, 2021

Maison ila, 11230 Sonnac-sur-l'Hers

"With gorgeous mountain views, all-colour sunsets, peace and privacy, Maison ila and its surroundings are enchantingly romantic - the perfect place to rest, reconnect and re-energise.."

It's all true! When we delivered the new hot tub to Maison ila last year it was a cold, rainy day, but we were given a wonderful, genuinely warm welcome. The property itself was stunning, but what impressed us the most was the naturally beautiful, calming and peaceful location. When Sophie told us about the plans to turn it into a wellness retreat we weren't at all surprised. So at the end of last year, when we were asked if we wanted to hold an open day there, we jumped at the chance to go back. And that's where we will be on Saturday 10th April - Maison ila in the French Pyrenees.


Built in 1791, the 5-bedroomed Maison ila sits in the church square on the edge of Sonnac-sur-l’Hers. It was already a well-established chambres d'hôtes (Le Trésor), before it was purchased in 2020 by Denise and John Leicester. Even though it has been repurposed into a tranquil 'bien-être' retreat, they have retained a lot of the French character and traditional features. One new addition though is the yoga, sound healing and meditation space. This is Denise’s area because as well as being a qualified nurse, she is also a yoga teacher, sound healer, holistic bodyworker and spiritual philosopher.

Wellness Breaks

Maison ila offers several different packages, from a 2 night couple's wellness break, to week-long bien-être retreats. The wellbeing retreats sound incredible! Depending on the length of your stay you can benefit from a wide range of healing therapies, yoga sessions and meditation. You can also experience a little bit of hot tub heaven in their wood-fired Burford Deluxe eco tub. So now you can understand why I am so keen to go back. I'm hoping I might be able to sneak off for a while and enjoy a little relaxing reflexology session.

"Probably the best Christmas present to the house we could have dreamed up! We will be offering wood fired hot tub experiences in our wellness packages and bien-être retreats. Our chambre d’hote guests can also book an experience as a part of their stay. Healing herbs from our garden will be added to the water for their health benefits.

Thank you @hottubsinfrance - you were a delight to work with, so helpful and your tubs are beautiful". Maison ila - January 2021
