Les Labadous is a special place, its name in the Occitan language refers to a cleansing place. Many find a healing energy and a creative energy here, some feel the energy of Mary Magdalene who is said to have lived and preached here.
Les Labadous is a “Domaine des Amis”, a house for friends. With nicely equipped rooms, studios and apartments. And a large communial hall that can seat up to 80 persons. It is situated in the valley south of Rennes-le-Chateau, along the "Ruisseau de Couleurs", bordered by huge black poplar trees.
Rennes-le-Château is best known for its “million dollar priest” Saunière, but also for its rich history. Dating back to ancient times, it has been considered a sacred place. There is much to be seen. The church dedicated to Mary Magdalene, with the statue of Asmodeus, the Tour Magdala and the Villa Bethania and of course the beautiful garden.

Sacred springs and sources, such as the Fontaine des Amours. Special churches and abbeys. UFO sightings, sacred geometry, the Knights Templar, the Holy Grail and the Arc of the Covenant…
