The tents are either 5m (for 2) or 6m (for upto 4) in diameter.  They are furnished with a double bed (5m tents) or  the 6m tents have variable layouts; a double bed and two singles or a double bed and a daybed capable of being converted to a kingsize bed (2 single mattresses, alternatively a second single bed can be added to this configuration). Furnishings are stylish and individual making use of vintage French furniture and upcycled items. Our Tents are sited on wooden bases and comfortable outdoor furniture is also supplied to each tent. The vintage caravan 'Luna' is an early 1970's model and the interior is being re-designed to create quirky, stylish, fully equipped accommodation for upto 5 people; a fixed standard double bed for 2, a convertible dinette area sleeps a further two people (bed size is 130 x 220 cms) and with a child's single bed created from the 'sofa' the interior gives living space for a couple in luxury or a family in comfort.  Moving outside, a covered deck to the front will provide a comfortable dining area and an outdoor 'kitchen' with a double gas ring and a cool store (an adaptation of the original fridge from the caravan).

Nearby

It's 20 miles to Aubusson, world famous for its tapestries, with beautiful works of art on offer, galleries and plenty of restaurants and shops, as well as the main museum. There are nearby markets and chateaux for the archetypal French experience and a plethora of activities for families who fancy a spot of adventure. Drive around an hour to; Lac de Vassivière, the biggest lake in Limousin in the Regional Nature Park of Millevaches.  Cycle around the perimeter, sail, kayak or swim in the lake itself enjoying one of the many beaches along its' shore. Similarly, Sioule-Loisirs (27 miles) is a great multi-activity base in the Sioule Gorges, with canoes, kayaks and electric mountain bikes for hire.  The UNESCO World Heritage site 'Parc Naturel Régional des Volcans d'Auvergne' (www.parcdesvolcans.fr), provides many opportunities for outdoor activities, two theme parks and even paragliding!  The mountains of the 'Massif du Sancy', a ski resort in winter are, in summer, a natural theme park for walkers & cyclists, there's a summer luge and the cable car will take you to the summit (www.sancy.com).

Food & Drink

It's a 5 minute drive into Auzances, where there's a handful of small restaurants and cafés and a market on Tuesday mornings. Plus, all the basic essentials – three bakeries, a butcher's, a pharmacy, a bank, a post office, vets, a furniture shop... a lawn mower store! For groceries, head to the big Intermarché supermarket just on the other side of the village.  The summer months see the addition of a 'pop-up' bar and bistro by the small lake in Auzances, which is very popular with local people - what better recommendation can there be?  There are a number of other, charming 'Auberge' type restaurants within a 15 minute drive.  Each summer, local villages and towns hold antiques/bric-a-brac markets and their own annual fetes.

Getting There

Be warned, La Toile Sous Les Etoiles' address is misleading... especially if using a SatNav! It's best to head for the nearest town: Auzances (‘postcode’ 23700). The campsite is around 4km from the town centre. From Auzances follow the D988 towards Dontreix/Pontamur/Clermont Ferrand. After the downhill sweeping bends coming out of the town, you'll cross 2 bridges. After the second, take the second left (the D4A1 towards Vergheas). Follow this road for 2km, passing through the hamlet of Les Vernades, and continue up the hill and around a sharp right hand, then a left hand, bend. Just beyond these bends, you'll see a crossroads sign. Straight ahead you will see 2 entrances in front of you. Take the right hand of these, into a Toile Sous Les Etoiles' car parking area. It's 50 minutes to Montlucon, where you'll find the main railway hub. It's an hour to Clermont Ferrand Airport and 2 to Limoges Airport. By car, Caen is the nearest ferry port (5hrs 25 mins), while it takes 5hrs 50mins to Dieppe or Le Havre. Calais is around 7hrs by car.
