Working with nature

Here at Forest Meadow Retreat we work with nature to encourage biodiversity. We never use harmful chemicals on the land, we make our own plant feed from nettles and our cleaning products are all environmentally friendly. There is such an abundance of wildlife here, so it’s important to us to work with the surrounding environment which in turn lets you appreciate its beauty during your stay.

All guests grey water is piped to our Reed Bed System. There nature works magic with good bacteria and plants on filtering and cleaning it, then it is sent out to water the trees.

We use composting toilets which prevents wasting water and creates amazing compost for trees and shrubs. Also by leaving areas of wild flower meadow, planting fruit,vegetables and flowers it encourages wildlife to keep visiting us, especially bees!. So if you are a keen bird watcher, or you are interested in wildlife or flowers then this is the setting for a great holiday. And the sky here on a clear night …WOW, NOT TO BE MISSED.

We are continuously working on our vegetable garden, orchard and flower gardens, so we are hoping to provide a pick your own salad and fruit for guests too.


We love living here in the Charente, France, it is a beautiful country.

The people have been very helpful and welcoming, and our commune appreciate what we are offering visitors and trying to achieve on our little patch of French Heaven.
But as beautiful as the French Language is, it’s not easy.

We are still learning and appreciate your patience when contacting us via email.

We aim to get to you as soon as possible and love that our guests are continuing to help us learn more each day, Thank you.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
Sharon, John and Elora.
