Our concept

A model of sustainable tourism

ROC offers accommodations focused on sustainable tourism, based on the Body & Soul Retreat concept with close-to-nature eco lodge and healthy high quality food, partly produced in the valley’s exceptional environment, where we get together while remaining physically active. We come to unwind, relax and find refuge away from the stress of urban life.

A body & soul retreat

The Refuge creates alchemy between body and soul. The surrounding environment is well suited to meditation or, in a broader sense, to taking a step back through self-reflection.

Healthy food

Local Food and Traditions :

Using local resources made by local producers

The Garden :

Locally produced food following seasonality (permaculture). Rare products (fresh herbs, old-style vegetables…). Seasonal menus with « veggie » or « healthy » type cuisine.

Supportive Actions :

A kitchen working with the surrounding villages’ local associations (cheese cooperative).

A warm welcome

At your arrival, Guy will be there to welcome you.

Managing the cottages and its exteriors, he will be able to present you your new home for a few nights after spending unforgettable days.
The calm, the mountain, the serenity, the surrounding nature are his daily life.
He will gladly share his passion with you.

A unique place opens its doors to you ;  welcome to Ossau Valley !

Hiking enthusiasts, enjoy a stroll to see the waterfalls and swim there.

Cross the forests, meet the animals that live there, browse the “gaves” to meet the beautiful trout, taste the gastronomy, discover the local traditions and crafts.

We would never stop listing the amazing spots of the Ossau Valley and its exceptional villages.
With great humility and simplicity, he will invite you to take some time to share these rare moments.

ADISHATS ! ( good bye ! )
