This safari tent offers luxury glamping with a beautiful 'vintage french' interior design, chandelier, wooden flooring and lavish drapes. This spacious and beautifully decorated canvas and timber tent is ideally suited for families or groups of up to four people, wanting the real 'glam' factor when it comes to glamping.

It has a spacious living area with ample seating and dining space, opens out onto a large terrace - the perfect space for al fresco dining, or kicking back and relaxing within the deck chairs.
There are four single beds within the sleeping area of the tent, which is separated from the main living area with drapes and curtains.

Water points are never far away, as are the two shower blocks, with baby areas, washing machines and dryers. There is also free wifi within the communal areas.

The perfect solution to keep everyone happy!
The on site facilities are vast at Les Ormes, with a black granite swimming pool, open daily from 10am until 7pm. A separate kiddie pool, a sandy beach on the banks of the lake, a pontoon from which you can fish or just gaze up at the starry sky. The children will be kept happy with the outdoor play area complete with swings and climbing frames, pétanque, ping pong, volley ball and football pitches or you can hire some tennis rackets to have a match or two on court.
It's well worth exploring the surrounding area, as this part of France is steeped in history and culture. The medieval villages or bastides of Villeréal or Monflanquin are just over 5 minutes away from the campsite, and offer wonderful local markets on Wednesday and Saturday mornings in Villeréal, as well as the nocturnal market on Monday evening from 18h00 during August with live music and donkey rides. The medieval festival in Monflanquin is well worth a visit during August, with street processions, jousting, horse parades to name but a few things on show.
Monpazier is rich in medieval architecture, conveniently located between Sarlat and Bergerac, whilst the Chateau de Gavaudin 40m high on a rocky cliff, has themed days during the summer months, to bring to life the medieval experience for young and old to enjoy!
The largest town is Bergerac, sitting on the banks of The Dordogne, just over half an hour away, rich in local produce from foie gras, to duck magret, prunes and Marmande tomatoes. For those after a wine tour, Monbazillac and its majestic Château, is a great place to explore, where you can enjoy a tasting of their famous sweet wine.
For more sporty types there is the Golfe de Barthe about half an hour away, and an "accrobranche" activity centre - where you can do trails in the tree tops, just 15 minutes from the campsite.
After all that exploring, you will no doubt savour your moment de détente (relaxation) back on site with a glass of something tasty, either pool side or in the comfort of your very own deck chair. Let the laid-back atmosphere seep in, simply unwind and relax, you are on holiday after all...
