We have just returned from our week stay at Sheila and Nigel's place and we couldn't have been looked after any better. The site itself is large enough to accommodate 5 tipis with each tipi placed in a spacious and shaded area - we are used to camping sites with barely a strip of grass between each tent and to...

We visited Sheila and Nigel's idyllic spot this summer for 3 nights before going on to Provence and we couldn't have asked for a better start to our holiday. There's a great family vibe at the site and because it's small you get to know everyone else that's staying. The kids loved the tipis and we rather enjoyed the storms... More

We were very excited to be heading to this site and although the rain was falling when we arrived, the welcome was very nice. A lovely small set up with a short walk to the tipi's. The owners had also been very helpful in allowing us to bring our dog. Unfortunately we did find the fold out bed in the... More

Whilst we are not surprised by JB’s review, we are disappointed that Trip Advisor published it after we had reported our discussion with him on their Report Blackmail Section on his date of departure. We felt the need to report this as JB constantly referred to Trip Advisor during our discussion about a refund, even claiming that Trip Advisor were... More

This is relaxation at its best. We started out by staying for 7 nights five years ago and have chosen to book longer stays over the years. Nigel and Sheila have seen our three children grow up during our stays at Vacances de Tipi. As hosts, they can't do too much for us and are always around to ensure we... More

If you want a holiday to remember, then 'Tipi en vacances' is for you. This place is amazing and all the people who were also holidaying we met were lovely. It is set in a beautiful part of France, with hot days to go find a lake to swim in, or just explore the area and cool nights, in the... More

We spent 3 weeks at this site in August and had a really brilliant time. The tipis are set deep within the woodland site, each within its own little glade giving just a glimpse of your neighbour’s tipi through the leaves. The tipis are light, bright and comfortable and each has it’s own large waterproof storage box for bits and... More

We are a family that don't usually camp but chose to stay here for three nights as an adventure for our three year old, to do something a bit different and based on all the good reviews that the site has received. We had a wonderful time and take away many happy memories. What makes the experience so special is... More

We loved everything about this place. We arrived hot, tired and a bit tetchy after a fairly grotty week elsewhere in France. We were immediately given tea and coffee by one half of the team, Nigel, while the other half, Sheila, made up our tipi, even though we had arrived 4 hours early. Travelling with a 2 year old and...

We (2 adults one teenager) have just returned from a brilliant week at this campsite and would recommend it to anyone wanting a great escape! The tipi's are set deep in the woods with woodland walks all around. You can sit for hours just listening to the birds and watching the wildlife. If you can drag yourself away from the... More

We found this site in the Cool Camping guide for France, quite rightly it was in their top 5 list! The thing that impressed us most was how much thought had been put into providing just enough facilities to ensure that this was camping without the hassle, whilst remaining true to the natural surroundings and the fact that you really...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
For something extra special this exclusive site is ideal, featured in the top 5 campsites in France (Cool Camping 2008). We offer excellent service and great attention to detail, nothing is too much trouble. Staying in one of our tipis in our woodland is both peaceful and relaxing. Breakfast is included in the price and table d'hote dinner various evenings. It's the tipis that bring our guests but it's the welcome and service that bring them back. ... more   less
