Welcome to Chez Yurt – luxury yurt camping in the beautiful Limousin region of France. If you love the romance and adventure of camping but also enjoy the comforts of home (proper beds, fresh linen, hot showers, a flushing loo!), then a stay at Chez Yurt could be the answer. We have something to suit everyone’s needs, from honeymooning couples to large families. Our take on glamorous camping, or ‘glamping’, offers peace and privacy as well as the opportunity to enjoy the various attractions on-site and throughout the region. Chez Yurt is situated in a small hamlet in the Haute-Vienne department of the Nouvelle Aquitaine in South-West France. Our Mongolian yurt (or ‘ger’ as it is more accurately known) enjoys views over the Gartempe Valley and across to the Monts de Blond in the distance...Welcome to Chez Yurt – luxury yurt camping in the beautiful Limousin region of France. If you love the romance and adventure of camping but also enjoy the comforts of home (proper beds, fresh linen, hot showers, a flushing loo!), then a stay at Chez Yurt could be the answer. We have something to suit everyone’s needs, from honeymooning couples to large families. Our take on glamorous camping, or ‘glamping’, offers peace and privacy as well as the opportunity to enjoy the various attractions on-site and throughout the region. Chez Yurt is situated in a small hamlet in the Haute-Vienne department of the Nouvelle Aquitaine in South-West France. Our Mongolian yurt (or ‘ger’ as it is more accurately known) enjoys views over the Gartempe Valley and across to the Monts de Blond in the distance. Our local village, about 4 miles away, offers a range of shops and facilities including a boulangerie, bank, pharmacy and restaurant, and the nearest supermarkets are within 10 miles. We are about halfway between the historic cities of Poitiers and Limoges – the former is the picturesque capital of the Vienne noted in particular for its Romanesque architecture, and the latter the bustling capital of the Limousin famed for its porcelain industry. Here are some comments from our Guest Book: ‘We were blown away by what we found! A little oasis of peace and tranquillity. The yurt is beautiful and comfortable. We liked it so much we stayed an extra two nights. Chez Yurt has something for everyone, a relaxing romantic break or a family adventure. It’s just waiting to be explored. We will be back for sure.’ Orla and Kevin [Limerick] ‘Many thanks for a wonderful welcome after a long drive. We heartily recommend Cathy’s cooking which was just excellent. All in all, a great place to come: beautiful, peaceful, but with plenty to do – even for teenagers! The Limousin remains an unspoilt region with a plentiful choice of activities for young and more mature families. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it’ Phoebe, Stephen, Edward and Gilles [Switzerland] ‘A fab welcome, a fantastic getaway for couples and families, our boys loved it! The pool, the chickens/egg collecting, the yurt, the ‘biggest garden bug in the whole wide world’, the Jenga, the trampoline……. Cathy, Jules and Dylan made the perfect hosts. We thank you and wish you ongoing success.’ James, Penny, Dillon and Fynn [Dorset] ‘We have had a wonderful week at Chez Yurt. All the facilities are perfect. The children loved, loved, loved the trampoline. The kitchen is stocked with all you need but Cathy’s food is delicious and a welcome treat – it is a must as is a visit to the lake. Thank you for your great hospitality and knowledge of places to visit.’ Becky, Matthew, Ruby and Jude [Notttingham] ‘It’s been wonderful to enjoy Cathy, Julian and Dylan’s little ‘coin de paradis’ this past week. We’re officially addicted to yurts (especially the kitchen and bathroom facilities!). We highly recommend a meal with the hosts – delicious food and great company. The girls loved playing with Dylan, the swimming pool, the trampoline, the games barn, everything! A huge thanks for your warm welcome, we had a great time.’ Rob, Patricia, Rebecca and Lilly [Oxfordshire] ‘Our first time in a yurt and what a wonderful experience this proved to be. The welcome was wonderful, the facilities exceptional and the hosts (plus Dylan) couldn’t be better. We spent a wonderful week here, exploring, cycling, going to the lac. We will be back next year! We wish you every success in your French life.’ Martyn, Vicky, Katie and Harry [West Yorkshire] More

About the neighbourhood
The local area boasts many markets, brocantes (antiques markets) and vide greniers (car boot sales). The nearby town of Le Dorat hosts regular night markets during the summer months, and Limoges holds a famous flea market on the second Sunday of each month. The Haute-Vienne is also a haven for walkers, cyclists and those with a taste for the more adventurous e.g canoeing, kayaking, bungee-jumping.
How to get there
Chez Yurt is situated in the beautiful Nouvelle Aquitaine region of South-West France, about halfway between the historic cities of Poitiers and Limoges. We are within a 7 hour drive of Calais and within a 4 hour drive of Paris. Budget airlines (including Ryanair and Flybe) fly from various UK airports into both Limoges and Poitiers - we are about a one hour drive from each. Various car hire companies operate from both airports. Airport pick-ups can be arranged.
