Les Gouttes d'Eau
‘Les Gouttes d'Eau' translates as ‘droplets of water' - which is the perfect way to describe this tranquil French escape!
Bordering the Causses du Quercy National Regional Park and just over an hour from Toulouse, you will find a selection of transparent domes set in over twenty-seven blissful acres of orchard land that overlooks the stunning Tarn-et-Garonne Valley.
The entire site is dedicated to wellness and relaxation in the beauty and serenity of the countryside, and you'll soon find plenty of wonderful ways to achieve just that, from a bubbling six-person Jacuzzi to tailored massage and beauty treatments in the dedicated relaxation lounge. Oh - and there are plenty of friendly donkeys, goats, sheep and llamas to greet every morning!
If you've ever wanted to sleep under the stars whilst indulging in plenty of comfort at the same time, you've come to the right place. Each ‘droplet of water' is a simply furnished transparent dome that comes complete with a cosy round double bed (an extra double sofa bed is included in larger domes), downy bedding and plenty of space to stretch out and relax.
You'll find a dry toilet and a wash basin inside, too, while lazing in the sunshine is made easy with your own terrace garden, dining furniture and sun lounger - the ideal spot to enjoy a hearty meal, lively conversation and a good book alike.
All that's left to do now is enjoy a pampering selection of beauty treatments from the comfort of your bubble, or learn more about the star-studded night sky with one of many astronomer-hosted stargazing evenings on site!
Breakfast is freshly prepared each morning - choose from sweet or savoury options - with evening meals also available on request. In between meals, why not get exploring the local area? You'll find the friendly site owners are full of information about ways to spend your time, all tailored directly to your preferences.
The site is close to an array of medieval villages, including clifftop St. Cirq Lapopie and Saint Antonin Noble Val, located in sparkling gorges it would be a shame not to go canoeing in! Toulouse, otherwise known as the famed ‘La Ville Rose', is a pleasure to stroll through, with its pink-hued churches and boutiques lining nostalgic cobbled streets.
Slightly closer to home, the Tarn-et-Garonne river and valley is ripe for caving and climbing, or perhaps hire a bike and spend some time whizzing through the beautiful countryside?
Exert as much energy as your mood allows, and then return to the comfort of your transparent dome for a hearty meal, good wine and a spot of sunset-watching...this is a holiday where star-studded memories will soon be made!
