The View from Chateau Paumes

LABASTIDE is a world unto itself. On a promontory in rolling countryside with views to the snow capped Pyrenees; it is living historical monument, complete with a medieval dungeon, vaulted cellar, 14 foot thick stone walls. Labastide still provides sanctuary to those who find themselves at it’s gates.

In the privacy of his home, within the ancient walls of Labastide, a community developed over 35 years, thorugh Dave Gregorys body of voluntary work is growing, centered on authenticity, where supportive men explore their own spiritual challenges in safety and integrity. Men ballsy enough to face of their own daemons and shadow’s, and able to contribute and build are invited to inquire.
There are real opportunities to invest in property and community, from finance to skills.

We are currently exploring possible retreat’s, event’s and courses around the world, providing safe educational scene alternative, developing Personal BDSM play potential in a safe environment.
