Native themed Stays

The experience of a themed stay in a tipi is a real invitation to get back to basics. Far more spacious than a camping tent, our tipis offer a unique opportunity to immerse yourself fully in nature, under the warm glow of the fire that warms the interior and offers a magical vision of the starry sky when you look up. Our tipis are equipped with box springs and mattresses covered with disposable sheets to guarantee your comfort. You can also bring your own comforters, or request a bed kit including sheets, pillows, blankets, a bottle of water and an electric lamp, for a supplement of €15 per person (you make your own bed).
