Our intimate woodland yurts (named after Kenyan beaches Shimoni and Bamburi) are a cocoon amongst the trees. Crafted out of ash and canvas, their stunning, circular structure and internal wooden frame create a peaceful sanctuary. They make a wonderful hideaway for a couple, or a great space for a family who want to share some time together. Each has its own private woodland space with seating to enjoy a morning coffee or evening glass of wine in your own woodland clearing.
Le Camp is situated in the stunning South-West of France, a little off the beaten track, just an hour and a half North of Toulouse. Set amongst the trees, this is a true haven of peace and tranquility and a safe place for children to run free and explore the campsite and make new friends.
The indoor/outdoor shower house - hand crafted using local wood, provides open-air showers: a blissful experience to awaken the senses in the morning!
There is a large covered seating area with an open fireplace for chilly nights. Adjacent is our outdoor kitchen where each tent is allocated its own cooking station with gas hob and fridge. There is an oven, dishwashers and barbeques to share.
The natural swimming pool has the purest water, and is 100% chemical free, filtered only by gravel and plants, ensuring you have a fantastic swimming experience. Dive in from the pontoon or float along whilst admiring the dragonflies which hover over the water, and the frogs which sit on the rocks surrounding the pool. The beach area of the pool provides a great spot for children to explore nature and paddle around in.
For those who wish to explore the surrounding region, the Aveyron valley offers a host of activities from hiking trails to mountain biking, and canoeing down the river whilst stopping off in stunning picnic spots along the way.

The village was awarded France's third favourite village in 2015, and was also the setting for Stephen Spielberg's 2014 movie "The Hundred Foot Journey", starring Helen Mirren. Here, you, can lose yourself in the maze of ancient alleys and canals, have lunch or dinner in a gorgeous restaurant overlooking the river, spend a few hours browsing in local artisan shops and independent boutiques or enjoy the award winning Sunday market.
The beautiful fairytale villages of Cordes-Sur-Ciel and Najac sit atop nearby hills. The city of Albi - famed for its Toulouse-Lautrec museum and impressive cathedral also offers a plenty of culture and many streets to explore. Within the surrounding area, plenty of local markets with organic food make for a fun and exciting trip out.
