Description of Glamping Units
There are four luxury camping lodges at this glamping site. They are named after the four wine-producing regions in the Vendée: the Brem, the Vix, the Pissotte, and the Mareuil.
Built on wooden pillars, the luxury tents are secluded and have been placed apart from one another to create plenty of privacy. Each of the three smaller tents has a large veranda, as well as its own bathroom, with a toilet, shower, and sink, and a kitchen, with a refrigerator and a roll-away cooking block.
The Brem, The Vix, and The Pissotte: These units all have a living room with a wood-burning stove, a double bed and a bedroom with three beds, including a set of bunk beds, and an ample walk-in closet.
The Mareuil: This unit has two separate bedrooms, for a total of five beds, a large bathroom with a toilet, a shower, and a double sink. In addition, it has a living room and a fully equipped kitchen with a dining area. There is a picnic table under the big, old oak tree next to the luxury tent for guests to eat their meals al fresco, too, and a hammock for relaxing in. This is the largest of the four lodges and the newest addition to the glamping site. It's 80 meters squared in size, compared to the other luxury rentals at 50 meters squared. Read More

This beautiful glamping site is surrounded by lush landscapes and bordered by a bubbling river. The 17th century dovecote is still functioning to this day, the renovated, former wine house serves as a restaurant, and the stables are still occasionally used by guests.
The dog kennel of the old castle has been maintained in its original state and is now used as a playground for children. It comes equipped with a trampoline, a ping-pong table, a swing set, and a small soccer field. There is also a jeu de boules lane in the courtyard next to the pool entrance.
The big pool, 100 square meters in size, is open from May until the end of September. It is heated, completely walled-in, and centrally located on the estate. Along with the old walls, olive trees, and lavender, the pool creates the perfect environment to cool off, relax, and enjoy the sun.
