Aurora is a six-metre furnished bell tent. It has a double bed and a day bed that makes into a king sized bed (with two single mattresses) so is suitable for families, couples who appreciate extra space, or perhaps two single people holidaying together.  We can add an extra single bed into this tent if children do not want to share the converted day bed - subject to availability - please ask.
Eco friendly low energy LED lighting is available in each tent powered by a solar panel for convenience and candlepower for ambience. All our tents are situated on wooden bases and have comfortable outdoor furniture and you can choose to cooking on gas or an open fire: perhaps a gas ring for that morning cup of coffee and the Kadai Fire bowl for barbecues and toasting marshmallows! There are mains-powered fridges and charging points for each tent as well as a cool box inside the tents for the morning milk.
A  luxuriously-appointed shower room is exclusively yours for the duration of your stay. A ‘Guest Barn’ is kitted out for our guests’ use, and is fully-equipped to cater for up to 20 guests, complete with a range cooker adjacent to our original bread oven, in which we will cook you handmade pizzas. There's also a communal fire pit/barbecue area where everyone can get together for socialising and marshmallow roasting and a beautiful swimming pool surrounded by decking and more comfortable furniture. The site is perfect for star-gazing at night  as the light pollution here is some of the lowest experienced in Europe.

About La Toile Sous Les Etoiles

Sociable, rural, bell tent glamping on the Limousin-Auvergne border where campfires are permitted, stargazing is a must and space is always guaranteed

We are Nigel and Olivia Stanton, who have recently bought a property in France with a big vision of a new future!  We have spent many years living and working in the Oxfordshire area in England.  Since we married in 1991, every year we have spent holidays camping, caravanning, boating, motorhoming and self-catering, mainly in the UK but also in France.  We have learnt to live in bijou spaces without compromising on creature comforts.

Over the past couple of years life has dealt us a new set of cards – Nigel was offered redundancy after 26 years in the same company, family responsibilities have lessened and it’s time to escape the daily commute and to realise a long held dream to open a campsite!  We began the search for a suitable property and considered all sorts of options along the way, finally deciding upon the Glamping route.

Now we are transforming our new property into a peaceful holiday destination for you, your family and friends to enjoy the countryside, with nature all around and rediscovering a simple but comfortable way of life.

In May 2018 we opened our small, exclusive, Glamping site on the Limousin/Auvergne border – a beautifully rural area in the centre of France with great transport links by road and air (Limoges airport is an easy 2 hours away and is served with low price flights all year round.  Clermont Ferrand airport is just over an hour a way and flights from the UK run during the summer months).

​We will be taking bookings from those needing just one tent, a number of families holidaying together, or even group bookings for the whole site (special birthday, anniversary celebrations, corporate events maybe?). Dogs accepted by prior arrangement.
