The Owner Says
This tent will awaken the adventurer in you, while offering all the comforts you need. Like a Canadian Trapper, you can sleep under a canvas roof, while enjoying the pleasure of a good bed, private bathroom and even a wood-burning stove.
The Trappeur Tent features a main room with kitchen area (gas stove with two burners, fridge, storage, sink and crockery all provided) and a dining area with table and chairs and a wood-burning stove. There are two sleeping areas: a parents' area with a double bed (140×200) and a children’s area with three single beds (60×200). The tent also has its own bathroom with shower, washbasin and toilet. Outside there is a wooden terrace with a barbecue, parasol and two fold-out chairs.
Please note: all our Canadian Trappeur accommodation is equipped and furnished in a similar fashion, but your actual accommodation, location and outlook may differ from that shown in the images.
The site has plenty of facilities including two swimming pools, a forest spa and a café-restaurant which opens for breakfast and offers a bread and pastry-ordering service (order the evening before, collect it in the morning and eat it back at your own accommodation). Meals generally start at around €10 and there are freshly-produced pizzas.
Huttopia Lanmary-Perigord is in a great location for exploring the Dordogne region. There are bikes available to rent and you can quickly link up with a long distance cycle route that takes you straight to Perigueux, home to several excellent museums. Nearby Brantome is popular for boat and canoe rental for paddling on the Dordogne, and Bourdeilles, for its magnificent castle (00 33 5 53 05 65 65), are also worth a visit. You'll have to hop in the car to find the nearest supermarket and there aren't really any shops within walking distance, so remember to stock up.
Features & FacilitiesExcellent shower and toilet blocks, cleaned 3 times a day, including spacious family bathrooms, baby changing and disabled facilities. There is a swimming and paddling pool with a pleasant poolside area, café-restaurant (open daily July / August and weekends out of peak season), bar (open until 11pm) and a reception area with a small shop and plenty of tourist information. Swings, table tennis, table football, badminton, volleyball and boules, plus an indoor lounge area with board and card games and a television. There is no Wi-Fi on site but a computer with internet is available (if you must). No campfires.
ActivitiesThe remote feel of the campsite does come at a cost – you'll have to hop in the car to find the nearest supermarket and there aren't really any shops within walking distance, so remember to stock up. For country persuits, however, it's ideal. There are bikes available to rent and you can quickly link up with a long distance cycle route that takes you straight to Perigueux, home to several excellent museums. Brantome, popular for boat and canoe rental for paddling on the Dordogne, and Bourdeilles, for its maginificent castle (00 33 5 53 05 65 65), are also worth a visit.
Food & DrinkThe café-restaurant opens for breakfast or you can order fresh bread and pastries the evening before, collect it in the morning and eat it back at the tent. Meals generally start at around €10 and there are freshly produced pizzas (made with organic flour and tomatoes) cooked in a wood-fired oven. BBQs are available for anyone to use in the communal areas dotted around the site.
