Domaine de Macara
nature contemplation health
Macara is a place of encounter to get together and interchange.Everyone should feel confortable, leave the daily stress behind to find peace and recreation here.
Macara is excellently suited for group-seminaires, workshops and retreats of any kind. The quiet atmosphere and the magnificent surrounding scenery will help to enhance this.
Macara is an old farmhouse from the 18th century,completely renovated with charme and class. It has seven rooms with 15 beds, consisting of one single room,4 double rooms and 2 three bed rooms, a big kitchen and the dining hall. Additional beds can be rented in the surrounding area if required.
our hall for practice
We have lost our yurt on account of heavy winds. We are on build a new hall but the bureaucratic mills grind very slow. In the meantime we can offer the hall from the village you can reach on foot in 10 minutes with a beautiful view in the Pyrenees.
The tasting of our guests takes up a very important part for us. Our kitchen will happily treat you with all kinds of delicacies. Be it vegan and/or vegetarian up to menues with meat. The products are regional and( if possible) biological. Your wishes and your likings are welcome to us !
Yet you can also handle the kitchen yourself or bring a cook with you.
The Ariège offers plenty of possibilities for hiking with the close by Pyrenees and at hand hills. Towns with weekly markets; e.g. the medieval Mirepoix or St. Girons situated in the Pyrenees offering products for every taste from biological food to folklore articles, anything you can think of. Dramatically perched castles by the cathares( Montsegur,Roquefixade, Carcassone amongst others) are waiting to be discovered.
Toulouse, also called the pink city invites you to stroll within its romantic alleyways and historical buildings. The cultural life is rich and variegated. Cafés and restaurants spoil your palate. Exquisite stores and unique Second-hand shops inspire and seduce. Albi, Perpignan or Lourdes are other, easily accessible destinations from Unzent.
We came to the Ariège because of the magnificent scenery and the high quality of life. After we acquired Macara and got married here, we now want to utilise our exaltation combined with our life's experience to share this place of quietude with others. It is our vital concern to create space, so everyone can discover,unfold and liberate one's own creartivitiy.
