L'ANNICHA

 Rest - Relax - Retreat 
 

Welcome to L'Annicha!

"Anicca" is the Pali word for impermanence, the constance of change. We interpret it as "being patient" or as "new beginnings", which is what we were looking for as we set out to change our lifestyle.

We hope L'Annicha provides you an environment to facilitate your inner transformation.

We welcome you to our home in the picturesque Quercy region of France, where you will get away from the hectic day-to-day and relax in a serene and authentic setting. At L'Annicha we not only aim to offer you a great place to come back to after a busy day of exploring, but to also create a homely environment favourable for reflection, recovery and self-care. 

L'Annicha is located on a fantastic 4.5 hectares of rolling countryside spanning the main house, barn house, gardens and soon-to-be lap pool. The estate also has a vegetable garden, grassland and a little oak-tree forest; all accessible during your stay with us. Roam around as much as you like. 

 

Bed and breakfast facilities, and gîtes (cottage; self-contained apartments) are available. No escape is complete without good food. Upon reservation we provide home cooked Western and South-East Asian meals prepared as much as possible with local produce. 

Your hosts

We are Tracy (Singaporean), Dirk (Belgian), Tix (our cat) and Roxy (our dog). After international careers (Tracy as a nurse and Dirk as a project manager) we sought a change in lifestyle that took us all the way from bustling Singapore to the quiet South-West of France.

We speak English, French, Dutch, German, Italian, Malay, Mandarin and Cantonese.

Retreats

The premises are perfect for organising a group retreat or training course, and can therefore be rented out as a whole. Please contact us for more information.

ACTIVITIES

Rest & Relax

Enjoy this unusual place, far from the beaten tracks. Take time off your busy life and come to rest. Enjoy our garden, read a book or roam around our property.

If you want you can also join us in our daily activities like sports, meditation, cooking and gardening.

Cultural visits

Our village is protected from an architectural point of view. It also contains the famous "Collegiale".  Within one hour drive there are two UNESCO world heritage sites (Cathedral Albi and Abbaciale Moissac) and many other worth visiting cities and places, like Cahors, Montauban or Lauzerte.

Sports

The neighbourhood has splendid hiking and biking tracks providing incredible views over the surrounding hills. Golf courses are within driving distance. The more adventurous can go kayaking, climbing, spelunking, flying ULM or karting. Our meadow has been used as learning slope for paragliding and flying sites are available in the vicinity.

Wine tasting

We are located in the Quercy region with its own wines. Neighbouring Cahors and Gaillac regions are better known. All of them have wineries which organise regular wine tastings.

Gastronomy

A couple of kilometres away is the local capital of the truffle Lalbenque. Several wineries also include top restaurants.  And of course we can advice you with our local favorites.

Markets

Every day has its market: whether you are looking for local produce, local specialties to take home or a souvenir, you will find a nice atmosphere roaming the markets in the region.
