La Pause is a a place to escape to. It's hard to describe exactly what this is. It's not a lodge, it's more of a camp, yet 'camp' suggests tents whereas the rooms here are not tents.

Whatever you decide to classify it as, it's a place owned and run by a very nice French man called Frederic. He found this area whilst out here horse riding one day, and fell in love with it. Here bought the lease and slowly built up La Pause.

It is also difficult to tell you how many people La Pause caters for! With as few as 5 people it could be classed as 'full', but then it can also accommodate up to 26 people. Why? Because Frederic has made 5 'zones' of accommodation. Once someone has taken one zone (be it one person or 4 people in a zone with two twin bedroms for example), Frederic will not sell the rest of those places to anyone else. This ensures privacy for each family or couple or party. Nice idea!

The rooms are varied - from a 'normal' twin room to a double room which only has 3 walls (the third being a huge curtain). But they have in common a comfortable bed and cosy linen, and en-suite bathroom with shower and flush loo, a sitting area inside and out, bowls of flowers ... and no electricity.

Why come here? Well, to get away from everyday life. It's simple here, so it's relaxing. You can take lovely walks in the river bed, you can go and walk to the nearby village and school, or horse ride or camel ride, or even play golf (with a donkey for a caddie!). It's also a great place for an event - be it a wedding or a big party.

At night the whole place is lit with candles and each couple of party has their own area in the main dining region where they area brought gorgeous meals.

Relax, pause, enjoy!
