La Source

Le Teil, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes

La Source is a restored 17th century farmhouse nestled amid vines and oak woods in the Ardéche region of the South of France. Today, La Source is an eco-responsible retreat centre run by Nick Hudis and Sandrine Périquet offering guest rooms, wellbeing and personal development retreats.

With nine hectares of unspoilt grounds, La Source is a true natural paradise far from the hustle and bustle of the modern world… no television, no noise, just peace and tranquillity for the discerning traveller. Yet we are surprisingly easy to get to, with good access from transport networks.

We are an excellent centre from which to explore the many attractions of the Ardéche and Drôme including the famous Pont D’Arc and the Chauvet 2 cave.


We have three comfortable guest rooms with private bathrooms. In addition we have a tent suspended in the trees and a wild west wagon a little distance from the house offering a camping style experience in a peaceful natural setting. Guests can also freely enjoy our saltwater swimming pool, gardens and woodland, complete with hammocks to relax in. Other facilities include a large salon/yoga/music studio and a summer kitchen for the preparation of simple meals and snacks.

Eco-responsible – living in harmony with nature

La Source is an eco-responsible enterprise. The old farm house is naturally green: well-insulated, warm in winter and refreshing in summer. Our electricity is solar powered, our water comes from our own incredibly pure deep well and our waste system is organic. We do all we can to live in harmony and respect with nature.

100% vegetarian & vegan friendly kitchen

In keeping with our identity and values, are 100% vegetarian. It is still hard to find good vegetarian food in rural France and we are proud to offer high quality vegetarian dining for our guests using, wherever possible, locally sourced organic ingredients.

For a supplementary price of € 12, we offer a continental breakfast which includes bread and croissants bought fresh daily with Sandrine’s delicious homemade jams such as apricots with rosemary and Reine Claude plums with rum.
Alternatively, we offer a deluxe breakfast at € 19 which additionally includes, fresh fruit and your choice of muesli and yoghurt, a plate of local cheeses or eggs, scrambled or poached.

Nick offers a table d’hôtes dining experience three evenings a week comprising aperitif, amuse bouche, entrée, plat, a glass of wine and dessert followed by coffee or a tisane.
Nick draws his inspiration from the many delicious vegetarian dishes of traditional Mediterranean cuisine and is passionate about using local, seasonal produce. His menus include local specialities such as ravioles de Dauphiné and gateau à la crème de châtaigne, plus more exotic dishes such as authentic tajines, Lebanese mezze and paëlla verdura. Please see our website for sample menus.
We are happy to cater deliciously and inventively for most dietary needs, including vegan, gluten free etc.
