THE STORY: After eleven years spent running a safari lodge in Kenya, Nigel moved to the Aveyron valley with his partner Claire, a former digital marketer with a love of horticulture and ecology. Together, they took over Le Camp, a luxury resort composed of tents and yurts on stilts, located in a beautiful wooded landscape. Artisan wooden furniture, solar-powered lighting, hammocks, bathrooms with interior/exterior bathrooms…. for an Out of Africa feel – minus the lions but plus wild boars! — that is sure to win over glampers. As a bonus gift, there’s “Snug,” a space stocked with books and board games, where you can chill out in nature. Starting at €172 a night.
TOILETRIES: Organic shower gel.
INTERNET: Wifi only available in the Gatehouse and seating area.
BREAKFAST: €10 with coffee or tea, viennoiseries, bread, cereals, yogurts, fresh fruit, cheese, charcuterie, fruit juice.
MINI-BAR: No, but there’s a summer kitchen with a dedicated fridge for each family.
LITTLE LUXURY: The beautiful (20-meter-long) pool that’s filtered naturally by plants and surrounded by a small pebble beach.
