Two Cozy Yurts Tucked within Calm Mountains in Haut-Languedoc National Park, France
"A great adventure to a very remote area. So quiet. I wish we'd stayed longer than just 1 night. Lovely hosts. Delicious, fresh breakfast. If you are …"
In the calm of the mountains, in the middle of a pristine nature, these two yurts offer a cozy and comfortably equipped space, in an inviting environment for rest, contemplation and communion with nature.
Big yurt (8m diameter) : This yurt comes with two double beds and an extendable couch and is built onto a natural stone platform on a meadow at the confluence of two mountain creeks.
Small yurt (5.25m diameter) : This yurt comes with one double bed, with the possibility of adding an extra bed during the summer months and sits like a bird's nest hidden between old trees, high up on a hill, surrounded by a terrace with a very nice view.
Their bamboo framed walls create a special aesthetic quality in the interior of the yurts and provide together with the round form and the natural materials an ambiance of protection and well-being.
The spacious, luminous interior of the big yurt, with its chestnut wood flooring, presents a unique living space, perfectly suitable as well for a family. Sitting areas to read and rest near a wood stove in the cooler seasons, give a warm ambiance. The big yurt is surrounded by private spots to be in either sun or shadow. The nearby creek offers not only a natural playground for children but also a relaxing and refreshing place for adults.
The small yurt is the ideal place for two people to really retire from the rest of the world in a protective, nest-like situation, in the middle of a wild nature. A sea grass carpet in the interior, together with a small, but comfortable sitting area, gives a warm and cozy feeling. In winter this yurt is also heated. In summer guests will enjoy the wooden terrace and one out of stone beneath an old oak tree.
Showers and toilets are both within close distance to the big yurt. A few steps further, in a separate wooden structure, guests will find a fully equipped kitchen, which can be heated by a wood stove. A large sliding door opens up to a covered terrace and provides a sitting and dining space right next to the forest.
The quietness of this place, together with the power of its surrounding nature, will help guests relax and renew.
Besides the toilet and shower, guests will have access to a fully-equipped kitchen. In the summer, guests will enjoy the large sliding door, allowing guests to cook with an outdoor kitchen feel.
