Les Labadous

La Source is a special place. It means washing place or cleansing place in the Occitan language. A place with a special energy. A healing energy and a creative energy. The energy of Mary Magdalene. The woman, they say, who lived here and preached here.La Source is now a “Domaine des Amis”, a house for friends. With well equipped rooms, studios and apartments. And a big hall that can seat up to 80 persons. It is situated in the valley south of Rennes-le-Chateau, along the River of Colors, bordered by huge black poplar trees.

Rennes-le-Chateau is best known for its “million dollar priest” Sauniere. But also for its rich history. It has always been a sacred place, dating back to ancient times. 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.

Rennes-le-Chateau is located in the middle of the “Pays Cathare”.  With its cathar castles and initiation caves. But there is more. Like the magical mountains Pech Cardou and Pech Bugarach.  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.

Over 600 books have been written about this places. Inspired by the treasures, magic and mysteries of Rennes-le-Chateau. These books include  the bestsellers “The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail” and the “Da Vince Code”. The nature is unspoiled, you can walk for hours without meeting anyone. And the food is wonderful, as are the wines, especially the Rose, the Rivesaltes and the famous Blanquette de Limoux.

La Source welcomes you to this special place. A place to rest, to create, to heal and be healed. to meditate, to write or paint, to reflect on life and to find your destiny. A house of friends. We would appreciate a contribution towards the costs of maintaining this beautiful place. Thank you so much.
