The genuine Mongolian Yurt, set about 150m from the house and 25m from one another. Decorated with a homely French twist and its own private little set up, fully furnished with king size bed, cupboards, seats etc with a compost loo and a solar shower. In a shared kitchen area, there are full cooking facilities and a more sophisticated (but far less fun) shower and WC.
This is also where you'll find the pool and the underground bar, which operates on an honour system and has all sorts of games and entertainment.
For those of you who want more than camping, this really is luxury Glamping

The Poitou-Charentes region
La Voute is situated near the village of Mainzac which is mid-way between Angouleme and Brantome on the border of the Charente and Dordogne one of the sunniest parts of France, on the edge of the Perigord/Limousin natural park. The area is renowned for its gourmet food and local produce including foie gras, truffles and the delightful local aperitif, Pineau.
We are surrounded by wonderful countryside, fields of sunflowers in early summer abound, broadleaf woodlands full of red squirrels, deer and if you are lucky wild boar, picturesque villages, numerous chateaux, working mills, prehistoric caves, churches and vineyards.
Set in the middle of nearly 60 Acres of grass and woodland in the beautiful Charente, close to the Dordogne border.
La Voute (The Vault) is named for its remarkable cellar underneath one of the houses, believed to date back between 600-900 years. So far we have traced the history back to 1841, when La Voute hameau, was the home of at least 12 people, with its own bakery, well, numerous houses and barns.
Over time, we have renovated and converted the buildings to create our perfect home here in the South West of France.
We now are pleased to invite you to enjoy the peace and tranquility, our hospitality, life style and wonderful home in one of our Yurts or in our Gite.
Just 30 minutes from Angouleme a pretty walled and historic city, home of the National Comics and Image Centre and the venue of the historic vintage car race 'Circuit des Ramparts' in the autumn. In the old town of Angouleme there is a wide choice of gourmet restaurants, pavement café's, bistro's and shops.
La Voute is close to restaurants and bars in Hautefaye, Marthon, Rozet, Charras, Varaignes, Panivol and Javerlhac. Many of the local restaurants offer 5 course lunches with wine for around €14. During July & August, visit the pretty village of Varaignes for their weekly open air BBQ
The market towns of Montbron, with monthly Brocante, Piegut, Nontron and La Rochefoucauld, are all close by. A Wednesday morning visit to the market in Piegut is a must.
The towns of Angouleme, Perigueux, Aubeterre and the world famous Cognac are all within easy reach. Brantome the Venice of the Perigord is only 30 minutes drive.
The coast at Royan, Lacanau, Isle de Re and La Rochelle, with fantastic sea food restaurants and white sandy beaches are all around 1½ hours away.

Our stay at La Houlette was so relaxing. The location is really peaceful. The yurt looks over meadow, and the kids loved running around in it spotting butterflies and crickets.We found our first stay … More
