Where we are – Santosha Yoga Retreat, France

We are situated in the small village of Conilhac de la Montagne in the department of Aude, in the region of Languedoc-Roussillon, France.

We are situated 45 minutes south of the medieval City of Carcassonne, 1 hr 45 min from Toulouse, approximately 1 hr 30 min from the Mediterranean sea (can be 2hrs in peak season), 2hrs from the Spanish border, and 4 hrs from Barcelona.

How to get here:

Carcassonne airport.

From within Europe, low cost airline Ryanair into Carcassonne, 45min away.  From here take the shuttle to the Carcassonne Gare,  and a train to Limoux Gare, where we collect you.  If a group arrive together at Carcassonne airport we can arrange a pick up at a reasonable rate.

Toulouse airport.

Easyjet fly into Toulouse from LGW.

From outside Europe, our nearest international airport is Toulouse, and the TGV fast train runs regularly to Carcassonne. From Carcassonne you take the SNCF train to Limoux Gare, where we will collect you.

If your group arrive and/or depart roughly around the same time, we can arrange transportation.  This will save you time, and be less expensive than the train. Please contact Gillian or Neil for information.

Barcelona airport.

Some guests have found it cheaper to fly into Barcelona. From here you can get a train to Perpignan and then a bus to Quillan (it is one euro) where we will collect you. However, if you cannot make the bus connection (there are only 2 busses per day, none on Sundays) take the train to Carcassonne.  From here you take the train to Limoux gare, where we collect you.  If enough people arrive on the same day at Barcelona we can arrange a private commercial shuttle bus to drive you straight here.  Please contact Gillian for a quote.


Carcassonne (45min) is connected to the TGV fast train network.  From here get a local train or bus to Limoux Gare, where we will collect you.

If you need help with travel arrangements, we are only too happy to help you.
