Get ready for the most magical glamorous-camping experience... Glamping at La Blanquette! Imagine falling asleep under the fairy-lit canvas and then waking up to the beautiful golden rays of sunlight filtering through the trees as the sun rises over the Dordogne valley. La Blanquette Glamping consists of two luxury bell tents, each with their own kitchen hut and shower room and the use of a beautiful and sparkling swimming pool, located just 7km outside of Sarlat-La-Caneda in a location which combines the best of both worlds - peaceful rural countryside and bustling town life. Each tent can sleep up to a maximum of four people. Truffe Noire is decked out with a proper king size bed with comfortable mattress (yes proper beds!), two extra thick 3ft futon mattresses, jute matting, hand pain...Get ready for the most magical glamorous-camping experience... Glamping at La Blanquette! Imagine falling asleep under the fairy-lit canvas and then waking up to the beautiful golden rays of sunlight filtering through the trees as the sun rises over the Dordogne valley. La Blanquette Glamping consists of two luxury bell tents, each with their own kitchen hut and shower room and the use of a beautiful and sparkling swimming pool, located just 7km outside of Sarlat-La-Caneda in a location which combines the best of both worlds - peaceful rural countryside and bustling town life. Each tent can sleep up to a maximum of four people. Truffe Noire is decked out with a proper king size bed with comfortable mattress (yes proper beds!), two extra thick 3ft futon mattresses, jute matting, hand painted bedside tables and beautiful fairy lights to provide light and ambiance. We also supply LED lanterns and lighting and pathways are light by solar lights. The tents are nestled into the magical woodlands that surround La Blanquette. Each tent has its own kitchen hut, private shower room (with electricity so that you are able to charge up those (non)essentials), outside dining area and barbecue. There is a waterproof shelter provided for outside dining on the occasion where we may get some summer rain. There is storage inside the tents as well as the ability to store items in the lockable kitchen huts and private shower rooms. Dogs are welcome for an extra charge - please ensure that you notify us of your dog/s before booking. There is a fenced in off-lead exercise area for your dogs and the boundary of Truffe Noire is fenced. Other than this your dog must be on-lead at all times at La Blanquette and is not allowed around the pool area. There is wifi in the grounds and around the pool. Our glamping guests have the use of a washing machine. As a gift from us to you a welcome basket containing locally baked bread, cheese, butter, milk, biscuits and a bottle of one of our favourite French wines, will be provided for you in your kitchen hut on arrival. During your stay in Truffe Noire you will feel at one with the environment and surrounded by nature yet you are only steps away from the fabulous amenities offered by La Blanquette, including a newly installed boules court and our fun Champagne Shed! There are two restaurants, a farm shop and an organic grocery store within walking distance. We provide bike hire (electric bikes too) and canoe and kayak hire on site. We are located just a short distance away from the mainly flat cycle path the Voie-Verte - cycling the Voie Verte is a wonderful way to see the small towns and beautiful countryside of our region. As well as seeing the scenery from the saddle why not rent a canoe from us for the day? You'll see gorgeous wildlife and stunning chateaux while taking a gentle paddle down the river. We will transport you and the boat to and from the beautiful Dordogne river and even provide you with a picnic if you choose! La Blanquette is not suitable for young children but those over 12 are welcome. More

La Blanquette is set in beautiful French woodlands. The amenities for glamping are set at a high standard and all your self catering needs are met. The tent and surrounding area was excellent and just far enough away from other guest to give privacy. The...More

About the neighbourhood
Sarlat is a few kilometres north of the River Dordogne. It is a medieval town that developed around a large Benedictine abbey of Carolingian origin. Because modern history has largely passed it by, Sarlat has remained preserved and one of the towns most representative of 14th century France. It owes its current status on France's Tentative List for future nomination as a UNESCO World Heritage site to the enthusiasm of writer, resistance fighter and politician André Malraux, who, as Minister of Culture (1960–1969), restored the town and many other sites of historic significance throughout France. The centre of the old town consists of impeccably restored stone buildings and is largely car-free. Sarlat is a pleasure to walk around, especially during the spring and autumn, or early in the ...
