The Owner Says

In this original accommodation, inspired by the shelters of the trappers of the Far North, you can play at campers and cook barbecues... And when night falls, drift off to sleep in a real bed on a cosy bench base. Everything is provided for you to enjoy an idyllic holiday in the midst of nature. The Canadian tent can sleep up to five people.
The Canadienne Tent has two bedrooms: one with a double bed (140×200) and one with three single beds (60×200). The main room has a gas stove with two burners, a fridge, crockery, storage, table, armchairs, chairs, lanterns. Outside there is a wooden terrace with a parasol and two fold-out chairs.
Please note: all our Canadienne Tent accommodation is equipped and furnished in a similar fashion, but your actual accommodation, location and outlook may differ from that shown in the images.
The site  has plenty of facilities and a whole host of nature activities which are included in our packages for active holidays for children and parents alike. Facilities include two outdoor swimming pools with one heated (from April 6th to September 30th) and a forest spa which features saunas in little wooden huts, a refreshing jacuzzi, and sun beds where you can recline in the shade of the trees. Relax and unwind… (area reserved for adults).

Lovely Spot - with lots to do for all the family

We are a family of 4 with 2 boys aged 10 and 12 and this was our first experience of a Huttopia Village. Our Canadienne Tent had everything we would need for our week living in the woods which was great because it meant we could pack light for the long drive down. It even had a fridge. Our accommodation was very comfortable both outside the tent and in. We spent most of our evenings on the decking area, eating and drinking and reading. playing games or gazing up at the clear star-filled skies above us through the tree canopy. One small criticism here is that our tent was located near the road which we found quite noisy at night. However, we did notice that the road noise was muffled by the hillside on the other side of the camp. We made full use of the resorts facilities and activities, including the pool, archery and guided walks. We also took in the Festival de Feu which was spectacular. Our only criticism here is that some of the communications were a bit misleading. Timings of events were sometimes changed at the last minute and the minimum age for the electric scooters and bikes we were told was 12 rather than 10 which was what it said in the documentation. This of course disappointed my youngest son. While the resort staff speak good English, many of the activities staff do not. Fortunately for us we understand some French so that was not a problem but we did notice others struggle a little. If you are going to travel that far then you will be missing out if you stay in the resort all week. There is of course a big Intermarche in Vallon which has everything you might need and the town main street is worth an amble through. A bit further a field there are countless little villages defiinitely worth exploring. The main event of the week for us was a 12km kayak down the Ardeche Gorge and under the famous Arc. We used the company recommended by Huttopia and you get 10% off for booking through them. We would recommend in the height of summer to go down it early in the morning or late in the evening as the river can get quite crowded. Also if the water levels are low it is a bit of a bump and scrape down the river. Its still worth the trip though as the gorge is spectacular. All in all we had a fantastic holiday and we would definitely recommend Huttopia Sud-Ardeche
