Luxury camping in the idyllic Dordogne Valley.

Oh to live on a French country estate.To throw open one’s windows and breathe in dawn’s mist before it fades away in time for morning birdsong. To see herds of deer frolicking among ancient woodland... (sigh). Luckily for all Gallic-bound glampers, such rural delights are not the exclusive preserve of the landed gentry.

Enviably situated in the quintessential Dordogne hamlet of Le Cambord (just 6km from Sarlat-La-Canéda), La Blanquette Glamping is nestled within a sprawling country pile. These ultra-luxurious, ultra-spacious twin bell tents, fittingly christened Chêne Vert and Truffe Noire (that's Green Oak and Black Truffle for us rosbifs), sleep four a piece and are found within their own tranquil woodland. The tents are decked out with proper double beds (Truffe Noire's is a king and the one in Chêne Vert is a double), jute matting, hand painted bedside tables and dreamy fairy lights (as if the air of enchantment needed adding to). Bedding is also provided.

While most of the accommodation is a dog-free zone, Truffe Noire is suitable for your four-legged friend. Set in it's own large pitch, it is completely fenced in with a grassy area for dogs to play and relax in. A large fenced in off-lead grassed exercise area in the heart of our woods is also in the works, so that dogs can run around to their heart's content!

A new addition to La Blanquette is the lovingly restored 1974 Castleton caravan, Chestnut. Complete with comfy double bed and fridge/freezer, plus an adjoining timber cabin housing a shower, cooking area and sofa, this cool vintage lodging is ideal for couples looking to go glamping in France in suave, retro style.

Outside, the thoughtful attention to detail continues. Each tent has its own private shower room located a handy (but respectful) 60 metres away. Each private shower hut has a loo, shower and wash hand basin and there are electric sockets for hair dryers or electric razors. Next to the shower rooms is a water fill-up point, a washing-up point and a shared use washing machine. Each tent is also treated to their own kitchen hut with a fridge, hob, grill and an outside dining area with barbecue. A waterproof shelter is provided for outside dining for the occasional summer rain shower.

The Owner Says

(info supplied by the campsite)

Get ready for the most magical glamorous-camping experience ever... Glamping at La Blanquette!

We have three glamping sites: two bell tents and one vintage caravan with log cabin. All three are nestled in and around the pretty woodlands here which are home to a vast array of flora and fauna and are criss-crossed by wonderful and winding walking trails.

Imagine falling asleep under the fairy-lit canvas and then waking up to the beautiful golden rays of sunlight filtering through the trees as the sun rises over the Dordogne valley. Surrounded by nature, the 5 metre canvas bell tents each sleep up to 4 people on 'proper' beds and two 3ft futon sofa beds with extra thick futon mattresses. The tents are carpeted with coir matting and are dressed in an eclectic and fun manner, they are equipped with tables, drawers and hampers for storage. Both tents stand in their own private woodchip covered area, approximately 30 metres apart.

New for 2017... one of our glamping tents, Truffe Noir, has gone dog-friendly! The tent and large pitch is enclosed by a fence enabling your dog to be off-lead within your own private glamping area. We have also created a large and fully fenced off-lead exercise area in the heart of our woods so that your beloved canine cuties can run around to their hearts content!  Or you could opt to stay in our beautiful vintage caravan which is situated on the edge of the woodlands with a view over the swimming pool and towards the Dordogne valley. We have lovingly refurbished the caravan with fun retro styling and fixtures and fittings. There is a comfortable double bed in the caravan, and a choice of dining for two inside or out.

The tents and caravan each have their own private shower room and kitchen hut which is fully equipped with all crockery, cutlery and utensils needed. Each tent has a small fridge and the caravan has a fridge with freezer compartment, all have gas hobs and grill. There are gas barbecues with covered outside dining areas. 

There is WiFi internet access on site, for those who wish to keep up with their social networks (who'd want to work on holiday?!).

Daily fresh bread/pastry delivery service direct to your door is also available.There is a farm shop, organic grocery store and two restaurants within walking distance of La Blanquette.

A welcome basket containing organic products including locally baked bread, cheese, butter, milk, biscuits, coffee and a bottle of local wine, will be provided for you in your kitchen on arrival.

Amazing stay!

We stayed here in June 2013 with a group of friends and had a great time! The tents were well equipped, which meant we could travel light, and had everything we needed (and more!). The site itself is absolutely beautiful, lots to see/do, the owners are very friendly too. Bike hire, canoe hire, trail maps, restaurant recommendations, you name it, they provide it. The beds were very comfy, tents very spacious, the kitchen has all the facilities you need. Even though the weather wasn't great, we had a fantastic time and cannot wait to return. Would highly recommend :)

Amazing

Myself and my husband spent a lovely week at La Blanquette during June . The tent was spacious and comfortable, the kitchen hut was extremely well kitted out, everything you could possibly need for cooking on the BBQ or on the gas hob in the hut.

The grounds of La Blanquette are well kept and private, plenty of seating area's in the sun or under a shady tree.

The owners were very helpful and pleasant from hiring canoes, bikes ( from themselves) they had a good knowledge of their surrounding area.

We would definitely return.

A lovely stay!

We stayed in the Chestnut caravan at the end of August 2015. Everything felt very organised and Nik had been in touch prior to our stay with some excellent directions from Bergerac Airport. On arrival, our welcome was friendly and warm. The caravan itself was in a lovely spot next to the woods with shade and sun. Inside was extremely clean and cosy. Everything had been thought of from cooking utensils to the extensive and extremely detailed handbook - there was nothing we needed that wasn't already there. The pool area was excellently maintained and the whole place felt very relaxing. La Blanquette is well located to get out and explore the surrounding areas around Sarlat and the Dordogne by car or just to relax around the pool. Would definitely return and recommend to others. Thanks!
