Spirit of Le Camp

 

 

Our Spirit and Philosophy
 

Le Camp started in 2007 as a small, family owned and run business.  We love camping and nature but we also like to be in a comfortable, stylish environment.  Our aim was to create the sort of holiday that we would want – enjoying the best of the outdoors, luxuriously. We are committed to keeping Le Camp small, intimate and exclusive. We don’t plan to make it bigger, open more sites, or franchise our ideas.  We run and manage Le Camp ourselves, which means that everything is done to the highest standard, all of the time.  We will continuously improve what we have created, and make it even better, year after year. 

Now in 2016, the market for luxury camping, or glamping has grown.  Whether you are looking for a simple stay in a luxury tent in a field, or a luxury tent on a typical campsite, or like Le Camp, a complete luxury camping experience with higher quality facilities, there is a wide choice for all budgets and tastes.  For us, the glamour in the term Glamping, comes from the peace, the space and the sense of wellbeing that you can only achieve when you spend all of your time outdoors in a beautiful setting.  Not forgetting, it is also a huge relief that you are not pitching your own tent and firing up the Primus for that first cup of tea!


Nine years on, our philisophy remains unchanged.  We care passionately about high standards and we understand how very precious your holiday is.  Le Camp is a special place, private and comfortable, whilst retaining the true spirit of camping – that is, the chance to spend some time with new people when you want to.  We love the opportunity to become personally involved in making your stay better. We have eaten in the restaurants, visited the villages, hiked, biked, canoed and climbed.  We’ve picnicked in the best spots by the river with our children, shopped in the markets and marveled at the ancient architecture. You can relax here and we don’t like rules.  Everyone is welcome, especially your children.  With so much for them to do here, friends to make, adventures to have, you can holiday alongside your kids, but relax at the same time. 

We welcome clients with limited mobility and have adapted facilities for your needs. Please telephone us to discuss your special requirements.


 We’re constantly asking ourselves and our customers how we can give you the best holiday experience with a clear environmental conscience.

WoodWe continuously strive to protect and enhance our relationship with our land, community and natural world, whilst giving you a luxurious, outdoor holiday. We couldn’t contemplate having a chemically treated pool, so we built one of France’s first natural swimming ponds, cleaned only by plants and gravel and purer than most tap water. We needed wood to build our decks, so we found a sawmill that supplies sustainable, local timber and employs and rehabilitates young offenders. Our tents, furniture and finishings have been designed to blend in with the surrounding landscape and colours. We couldn’t bear the thought of flushing drinking water down the loo, so we sourced the best, most effective dry toilets. We grow lots of beautiful plants so we recycle your used water to keep them alive. Total darkness is a real treat here so we minimise light pollution with soft solar lighting. We said we’d only work with people from our community, and we’ve stuck to that. Beyond our season we love sharing our facilities with kids from the local nurseries and schools. These are just a few examples of the first steps that we have taken to create a small but sustainable business.  It is these efforts that have contributed to us being selected for Alastair Sawday's new "Green Europe - Special Places to Stay" guide, and featured in Rough Guide's “Clean Breaks, 500 new ways to see the world”.
