Les étangs (the ponds) offers luxury camping in idyllic surroundings on a working smallholding in Central France. Four large luxury safari lodge tents set in 7 acres of unspoilt and largely undiscovered, French countryside. Glamping defined!

The lodges have two bedrooms, a living/dining area an attached private shower, hand basin and a dry toilet, their own kitchen, a private veranda, BBQ and fire pit, combining the luxury of a hotel with the amenities of a private residence. All lodges also have access to a traditional shower room and kitchen in our converted stables. Glamping may be becoming an over used phrase, but glamorous camping it is. All the great bits about camping, immersing oneself in nature, sleeping under the stars and sitting around a camp fire, without the less desirable aspects of pitching tents and uncomfortable mattresses.

Les étangs offers you the opportunity to be close to nature in true luxury and style, from the king size beds to the wood floors, the Egyptian cotton sheets to the large fluffy towels usually found in five star hotels. The Lodges are strategically situated around the property to ensure great views, ambiance and privacy.

We are a small, family run business with years of experience in hospitality and catering around the world. With only four lodges we can concentrate on providing the glamping / luxury camping experience that we would expect.



We offer two lodges with 25m2 of living space and two with 37m2 all lodges offer a further 10m2 of covered veranda.  They are also well equipped with everything you’ll need. The luxury tents are the best available, and new for 2014. Glamping in France the way it should be done.



Designed with relaxation in mind, you can’t help but relax! Listen to the bird song, take a stroll and catch a glimpse of  a deer crossing the meadow, a bird of pray circling above or dragonflies hovering over the pond, natures beauty surrounds you.

NB. Photos of lodges shown are of our old design, they are smaller and without the separate bedrooms offered by our 'new for 2014' lodges
