Whether it’s at a festival or located in the beautiful countryside of France, our selection has space for everyone.
La Parenthese Camping Les Ormes
Described as France’s calling to Out of Africa is this safari-style glamping site. Located in Lot-de-Garonne, visitors to the site have a choice of luxury camping facilities; from lodges to safari tents to tents joined by your very own terrace, there’s a style of glamping available to everyone. On site you’ll find a swimming pool, fishing lake and courts for sport activities. Indulge in breakfast delivered to your tent and private shower facilities, while an on-site food truck can satisfy your carvings. Wi-Fi is also available on site but that won’t be needed whilst you’re exploring the surrounding areas.

Le Monteil Revolution
In Central France sits a geo dome-style campsite. On eight acres of land and surrounded by natural parks, you will most definitely come across some of the natural wildlife that roams the grounds, such as deer, owls, badgers and many more friendly faces.

The site also offers free Wi-Fi, washing machine facilities and a taxi service. A stand-out feature is the Japanese style bath which is hugged by its natural surroundings, all while looking out onto the valley. Escape the campsite to explore the Monts de Guéret for forest walks, mountain biking and horse riding. A mere ten-minute drive and you’ll find the world’s largest hedge maze, the Labyrinthe Géant; close by are local restaurants.
La Vie en Rose
