— How would you describe Le Camp in a nutshell?

Nigel: “Stylish, comfortable, and very cool! There is a very laid back and natural atmosphere. Being close to nature seems to bring out the best in people.”

— Please provide an overview of Le Camp, the different tents, the pool etc.

Nigel: “Le Camp has six tents, each located on a raised wooden platform. Every pitch has been carefully chosen for its views, privacy and mood. For our guests, this means a true sense of space and seclusion. We have large safari tents and intimate woodland yurts. Our natural swimming pond is one of the first in France. Cleansed only using gravels and plants it is a unique chance to swim with nature in the purest of water. It’s the perfect place to relax and watch the butterflies, frogs and dragonflies that are attracted by the fresh water and vegetation.”

— What inspired you to run Le Camp?

Nigel: “Having spent 11 years running a luxury tented safari camp in Kenya, I really got to know what makes for a first class holiday experience. Le Camp gave me the opportunity to continue the safari spirit of “luxury in the wild”, but without the risk of lions coming into the camp at night. The deer and wild boar we get here are much friendlier!

Our family is based in the UK and this region of France has great transport links so we can get back to see them easily. It also means guests from across the world can reach us easily too, even though we are in the heart of the French countryside.”

— What is the philosophy of Le Camp?

Nigel: “Le Camp’s ethos combines the best of the outdoors with comfortable and stylish accommodation. As a team of three, we know we have what it takes to keep Le Camp at the leading edge of glamping: My African safari experience, Claire’s horticultural know-how, and my daughter Seiya’s flair for interior design. It is already a very popular glampsite, and we won’t be making dramatic changes on day one. But over time we will be taking the spirit of the camp closer to the glamour of the classic African safari camp experience.

Having run my Kenyan camp completely off-grid, we want to keep Le Camp’s environmental impact to a minimum. We will install more solar power (we are definitely blessed with sun here) and build new facilities out of natural local materials. Claire is obsessed with composting and “grow-your-own” and Seiya is brilliant at upcycling. Nothing goes to waste here!”

— What facilities are at Le Camp?

Nigel: “Our covered outdoor kitchen is a real joy to use. Every guest has a big kitchen space with a hob and a fridge. We provide all the cooking essentials like oils, vinegars, herbs, so that people don’t have to buy everything just for one week. There is a shower house in the woods, which is a really beautiful wooden facility and there is a wetroom for limited mobility guests. We also have a laundry room with a washing machine.

There is a lovely room, which we call our ‘Snug’. It has games and books and it is stays quite cool during the day. It is great to just chill out and get a bit of space. In winter, we have wood burning stoves in each tent and the two large ovens are perfect for a big family roast dinner!”

— To you personally, what is so special about Le Camp?

Nigel: “We love nature and the outdoors and here you really feel part of it. Even the kitchen and showers are open air. There’s no traffic noise, no light pollution and no worries. Even though our tents are beautifully decorated inside, nothing can compare to the beauty of nature. We are blessed to have both.”
