Cosy dwellings that blend art with nature, beautifully nestled in lush French woodland.
Located in stunning Les Épesses woodland, close to the famed Puy du Fou theme park, Terragora Lodges is both an eco-village and a tranquil haven of creativity.
You'll find a uniquely imaginative selection of accommodation here, along with a friendly and sociable atmosphere that will leave you feeling immediately relaxed. Attention to detail is paramount, and there are plenty of artful touches all around to delight your senses.
Whether you choose to stay in a wooden hut, a suspended lodge or a clay cabin, you can sit back and enjoy stunning scenery from the comfort of your private terrace. If you're in the mood to make new friends, there are plenty of areas to congregate too, including a comfy lounge and an all-important wine bar!
Each of the three lodges, Chrysalis, Borrow and Water Lily, feature a private bathroom and a beautifully decorated sleeping area. Chrysalis, with its delicately-woven ‘scales' and a terrace that ascends into the treetops, will make you feel like an emerging butterfly each morning!
Meanwhile, the Borrow Lodge is created from hand-crafted clay domes, with a bed that blends into the alcove. Set on the edge of a pond, Water Lily is a beautiful zinc lodge that resembles a Cubist painting.
The huts are all reminiscent of more refreshing, natural times past - ideal for that authentic country holiday feel. Shared bathroom facilities are close by, and each hut is both individually styled and ridiculously cosy.
Aborescente Hut looks out across the valley, from its position at the heart of an ancient tree. The twin Idyll Huts are ideal for a small group, with a backdrop of wild cherry trees and briar roses. Finally, The Nest is secluded amongst the trees, for that feeling of truly being at one with nature.
Enjoy breakfast on your terrace or at L'Agora, the on-site restaurant. In fact, L'Agora is more than just a restaurant; it's a catch-up spot, a library and a lounge too! While away your time here, nursing a mug of coffee or a glass of wine as you gaze out across the open woodland.
If you prefer getting out and about, there are plenty of hiking trails that allow you to immerse yourselves in all the natural beauty of the area. Gather up the kids and head to Puy du Fou (second only to Disneyland Paris in terms of legendary French theme parks), or take a trip into nearby Cholet for golf, shopping and sightseeing.
Return to your new second home just as the sun is starting to sink into the treetops, and as you listen to the birds' evening chorus, thank your lucky stars for your good holiday fortune.
