The Thénac

Our beautiful farmhouse is in the Dordogne area of France.

Surrounded by nature

The Farmhouse is situated in peaceful, natural surroundings just 5 minutes drive from Plum Village Monastery and 20 minutes from the Dordogne River. See how to find us for more information on the location and instructions for getting here.

Your future home

We are currently renovating the Farmhouse in order to create beautiful spaces for people who want to live together. It will provide a sanctuary and space in which to create a vibrant community, with spacious bedrooms and communal living areas and gardens. We will let you know as soon as the hub is open for residency applications.
