Taking camping in the woods to a whole new level in this mini-town of safari tents. This campsite is too special to leave.

Peek through the trees of this nature reserve woodland and a cluster of humungous safari-lodge tents loom into view. Close to the limestone scenery of the Parc Régional du Vercors, this settlement has pioneered next-level glamping, with a set of sturdy canvas homes perched on wooden decks hidden in woodland behind an 18th-century inn. These constructions are simply huge; you’ll stretch your legs just fetching a glass of water and families can hang out here all day without feeling claustrophobic. Choose between a covered or uncovered terrace porch, then tie back the front flaps to create an open-plan abode filled with double and bunk beds and full-sized wardrobes. Look out towards a view of arboreal wilderness. 

But it’s not all about luxury glamping: you can also book a tunnel tent sleeping four, with awning, bedding, and gas stove; a small 90s caravan for two, or just pitch a tent in the meadow near the pool, snack bar, dining patio and wash block. Once acclimatised, you can explore the park by bike or on foot; or just enjoy your place in the woods; it’s too special to leave for too long.

Woodland Camping

I stayed in the woods here last summer (2015) and it was really great. Hot but plenty of shade because of the trees, really friendly campsite owners and great for the family. I always have to camp somewhere with a swimming pool and this campsite was nice, clean and friendly! Thanks very much for our stay.

LOVED IT!

We were travelling around for two weeks with our camper but treated ourselves to two nights in a safari tent at Le Grand Bois. It was perfect! We loved it so much as did our nearly 4 year old!!! Beds and bedding is so comfy, fridge, freezer and electricity really useful!  Pool was great as are the owners!!! REALLY lovely couple. I thoroughly recommend you stay here. Nearby village is gorgeous too. perfect stay.

A week of relaxing

We had a fantastic 6 nights in a safari tent with the most comfortable beds! The campsite is clean, well organised, and all staff very welcoming.  Our 2 children (age 6 and 9) loved the pool, making dens in the wood and cycling round the site.  It is set in the most beautiful surroundings with amazing views, wildflowers in the meadows and gorgeous villages and towns. We spent almost every day at the campsite as it was so relaxing or popping down to the local river to paddle and sit in the sunshine.  Thank you
