Are you looking for a holiday that's as yet undiscovered, original and unusual? If you're looking for new sensations, opt for our perched safari tents. You'll enjoy a fantastic stay in a peaceful setting in the heart of the forest. During your trip to the Périgord, you can enjoy an unusual holiday while exploring authentic landscapes, just like on a real safari.

The luxury safari tent

The safari tent, also known as a lodge, is a large tent with an exotic atmosphere. With its partitions and rough-hewn plank furniture, it exudes a particularly warm atmosphere. The safari tent is fully furnished and equipped. It is generously sized. Inside, there's a large living room with a fully equipped kitchen, a real bathroom and two bedrooms. One with a double bed, the other with two bunk beds, for a total of 6 beds. And we're not talking camp beds!

Among all the unusual places we come across, this large tent, raised on stilts about 3 metres above the ground, will transport young and old alike on a unique adventure.

The safari tent, a feeling of being elsewhere

It's true that the term safari, at first glance, conjures up images of long journeys, expeditions, wild animals, adventure, the outback and thousands of miles travelled... And our safari tent has some of these elements. In fact, it's also called a lodge, in reference to the tourist accommodation found in Asia or Africa, set in the middle of the wilderness.

Don't forget to recharge your cameras with us either: this large forest in the south of the Dordogne promises some great surprises and moments to immortalise.

That's right! You may hear owls hooting or see squirrels jumping from tree to tree. You'll also discover a new culture and a new cuisine. And you'll never say no to a good Bergerac wine and a Périgord salad again.

What if luxury was sleeping in a tent?

Yes, a safari is an experience, but it also means restless nights away from home and sometimes complicated living conditions. With our safari tents, there's no need to sleep on the ground: you'll enjoy a luxurious stay in safari tents equipped with all the necessary and adapted facilities. They combine canvas and wood, the exterior is entirely canvas and the interior is made of wooden partitions. You have your own bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, fridge, microwave and gas cooker. And inside there's a wooden floor, a living area, no camp beds but lovely bedrooms with comfortable beds.

Gone are the days of classic camping, hours wasted putting up tents or a hotel without charm: now it's time for glamping! A mix of camping, glamour and, above all, comfort.

The luxury safari tent is the ultimate glamping accommodation, offering a particularly attractive change of scenery. Unusual and cosy, with a soft bed, the sound of leaves falling on the canvas and a comfortable bathroom. Safari tents give you the chance to experience luxury and quality in unusual and exotic accommodation that blends in perfectly with the environment.

Luxury safari tents: more than just accommodation

Our safari tents are built by your host Jean-Guillaume. They fit in perfectly with our estate. They strike just the right balance between autonomy and conviviality. You have your own space, your own kitchen, your own bathroom, in your own tree. But your children can play with friends in a large play area and enjoy the pool. Meanwhile, you can enjoy a barbecue and aperitifs with your neighbours in peace and quiet.

And when it gets too hot, simply sit out on the large covered porch. A pleasant terrace where you can relax and enjoy a good meal. It's also perfect for wonderful summer evenings playing games with family and friends while sipping refreshments.

You won't soon forget your stay in the historic Périgord region!

So why not try a safari tent?

Our perched safari tents will take you up into the trees. And all the while enjoying comfortable accommodation, so that your stay leaves nothing but beautiful memories. If you're ready for a complete change of scenery in the heart of the Castelwood estate, book your stay in our safari tents now.
