The Owner Says
Tie back the canvas curtain to reveal a beautiful vista of dappled sunlight streaming through the trees as you sit back and relax on your open veranda. These luxury Safari Tents are beautifully decked out, with comfortable beds (all bedding and towels provided) and spacious living areas. The outdoor kitchen is ideal for cooking and entertaining alike with a gas hob and a fridge. Water points are all close by. Shower facilities are all a short stroll away.
You can drift off in the canvas hammock or sit back and watch the trees and enjoy the tranquility and calm of this wonderful 'big wood' of Le Grand Bois campsite.
As the name suggests 'Le Grand Bois' is set amongst a peaceful haven of beautiful trees 650 meters above sea level, creating a quiet and relaxing retreat away from the hustle and bustle of city life, surrounded by stunning views of the rugged mountains of the Drome region. Known as the pre-Alps, it is set between Dieulefit and Bourdeaux to the East of Montélimar.
This little corner of paradise has plenty to offer whilst maintaining the 'rural' feel. A sunny pool complete with sun loungers and a baby pool will keep both little ones and adults happy, whilst the more active can enjoy some cycling in this majestic landscape and take on some of the famous Tour de France stages. Rafting and canoeing are also great to try out in this pictureque setting.
