Unplug from everyday life and head for a slice of rural French paradise, where friendly animals roam free (and so will you!).
  • Sleeps: Up to 4 per dome
  • Bedrooms: Open plan
  • Bathrooms: 1 per unit
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights

The moment you arrive at Le Monteil Revolution, you’ll feel your cares melt away as if by magic.

Nestled within forest land in central France, the peaceful smallholding and glamping site is the brainchild of friendly owners Charley and Calum. Their enduring mission is to create a natural space for guests to roam freely, breathe easy and think clearly…and you’re sure to feel they’ve succeeded admirably!

The “roam freely” mission also applies to Le Monteil Revolution’s beloved animals, each of whom has its very own job, from the chickens that supply outrageously tasty fresh-laid eggs for breakfast, to the affectionate cats who keep the animal feed free from unwanted visitors.

There are two off-grid geodesic domes for you to choose from, Rocher – perfect for two adults and two children – and the slightly more spacious Châtaigne, which is ideal for families with older children, or four adults.

While you may be staying in La Grande Outdoors, there’s no need to compromise on luxury (or lug unbearably heavy suitcases behind you!) For starters, you’ll have your own private bathroom, stylishly equipped with towels, toiletries, and that all-important hairdryer.  

Meanwhile, both the communal and outdoor summer kitchen are very well equipped, so you can pack perfectly light…and you can even help yourselves to treats from the herb and edible flower garden.

Later on, enjoy endlessly soothing views from the comfort of your private decking…complete with a wood-fired, chemical-free hot tub that’s reminiscent of a Japanese hot spring bathing experience.  Purposefully positioned for you to make the most of the blazing sun sinking over the fields and valley, you may never want to get out of that tub!

More information

Fire up the woodburner on cooler evenings, as you make the most of the star-studded night sky from your dome’s amazing panoramic window.

When it’s time to turn in, simply fall into your downy kingsize bed, dressed in fresh cotton, plump pillows and soft throws – bliss! If you’re bringing the little ones, Rocher features an extra sofa bed, while Châtaigne includes two cosily dressed singles.

By day, why not get on your bike? Keen cyclists themselves, Charley and Calum are only too happy to show you the best routes, whether you enjoy mountain biking or prefer heading out on the road. Cycle hire is also available if you forgot to pack your own.

Head off on foot if you prefer – there are plenty of natural delights to explore in the surrounding area – or simply stay on site and get to know the animals better. There are plenty to keep you company, including playful dogs, pigs, and friendly miniature donkeys. Oh – and not forgetting your very own coop of cared-for chickens, where you can collect those delicious eggs each morning.

Relax and indulge in the natural life to your heart’s content…the only downside is that at some point you’ll have to return home again!
