Maison de Lunel is accredited by the Complimentary Medical Association and as such we are committed and dedicated to provide our guests with the highest professional standards and peace of mind.
We work very closely with the CMA and our fellow members to offer guests an exceptional and professional retreat experience.
Les Gonies is our primary supplier of fresh organic seasonal produce and we are so lucky that they are our neighbours in Mauroux.
We, Ton and Mirella, launched our small-scale organic farm, Domaine Les Gonies in 2000. We work according to the principals of Permaculture, mimicking Mother Nature as much as possible. In nature, you see a very diverse variety of living and we adopt the same approach with our vegetables, our fruit trees and our livestock. They all play their role in the ecosystem.
This system is all about feeding and nourishing the soil; the soil feeds the soil-life and the soil-life feeds the plants. By doing so the plant gets the maximum amount of the nutrients it needs and the maximum of those nutrients you will find in your food.
We are very happy to be working with Maison de Lunel and providing a whole host of seasonal vegetables.
We welcome guests visit our farm and see first hand how amazing Mother Nature is – to gain a greater understanding of sustainable and organic farming and purchase our homemade produce.
We look forward to seeing you!

We know that sustainability is an important focus for many of you and we have always been an environmentally-conscious company and want to remind you of our current credentials and future commitments to protect people and planet.
Our products are vegan and cruelty-free, containing no parabens or SLS’s and we are going through a process that makes our formulas even more environmentally-friendly, this process will be completed by the end of 2022. Looking to future progress, we will be moving to recycled plastic bottles by the end of 2022 and where possible, utilise glass options for containers. Our partnership with Clean Conscience has continued throughout the pandemic and we have provided them with products for the shelters they supply. For those of you who may not know, Clean Conscience is a charity which distributes excess amenity stock to those in need of sanitary products. We have more sustainability commitments that we’re working on for the future and will share them as soon as we can.
Derived from the catch phrase Coffee or tea?, we named our brand Or Tea?™, dropping coffee and leave the “?” there to subtly suggest to the consumers it is their choice to drink something… healthier and hippier.
We chose to work with the boutique tea company Or Tea? for the quality of their beautiful organic tea as well as their ethical values. We loved the ambition of the founder and we hope we can play a small part in their growth and success. We also offer some small Or Tea? Gifts in our brocante boutique
From Hong Kong to Europe
In 2010, the concept of Or Tea?™ was incubated in Hong Kong. We rolled up our sleeves and went to some rural areas in China to source some most exotic and representable Chinese teas, with the idea of introducing this ancient tea drinking culture to the west in a modern way. In 2011 new year day, we made our way to La Bon Marché in Paris in our soft launch to the market.
Here Is Our Little Dream…
Revolutionising tea drinking into a lifestyle for the modern generation. Inspired by millennia of enjoyment from this ancient tradition, Or Tea?™ is a concept for today’s trendsetters. Beyond bringing you the tea as a commodity, we strive to build a brand for generations to last.
