Chestnut consists of a refurbished vintage 1974 Castleton caravan alongside a cabin built from timber from our own woodlands, that houses a large shower room and kitchen/seating area.

Chestnut is situated on the edge of our woodlands with a view over the swimming pool and towards the Dordogne valley. We have lovingly refurbished the caravan with fun retro styling and fixtures and fittings. There is a comfortable and full-sized double bed in the caravan, and a choice of dining for two inside or out.

Chestnut is so named because of the Chestnut trees that can be found deep in our woodlands and in the wider Dordogne area.

The caravan has its own private kitchen area in the timber caravan immediately adjacent to the caravan, there is a 2-ring gas hob, small grill, and a full-sized fridge with freezer compartment. Chestnut is fully equipped with all crockery, cutlery and utensils needed. There is a charcoal barbecue with a covered outside dining area or you can set the table up inside for a cosy romantic candle lit dinner. There is ample storage in the caravan with plenty of cupboards, drawers and a warrdrobe.

There is WiFi internet access in the caravan and it's outside areas and by the pool. There are power points in the caravan and the cabin.

As a gift from us to you a welcome basket containing locally baked bread, cheese, butter, milk, biscuits and a bottle of 'La Blanquette de Limoux', one of our favourite French sparkling wines, will be provided for you in your kitchen hut on arrival.

At night the interior of caravan and the outside areas are lit by hundreds of pretty, twinkling fairly lights.

During your stay in Chestnut 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 is a shared washing machine and 2 wash tokens per week are included, additional tokens can be purchased.

Glamping guests have the use of the large swimming pool and gardens at La Blanquette. All of this is with the added bonus of no towing your caravan, we do all the hard work and leave the best bit, the posh camping, to you!

All bed linen and kitchen towels are provided, please bring your own bathroom towels and towels to use around the pool.

We provide bike hire and canoe 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.

The Aquitaine/Dordogne region

The Dordogne region of south-west France is one of the most beautiful and popular destinations in the country. This beautiful region of France has many chateaux, wonderful medieval towns and villages and stunning unspoiled countryside.

As well as Sarlat the many amazing sights and places to visit in the Dordogne include Lascaux caves; Marqueyssac gardens; Beynac - for kayaking on the Dordogne; Chateau Castelnaud; prehistoric caves in the Vezere Valley, and many more.

Dordogne is the 3rd largest department in France. It enjoys a varied and temperate climate, the winters are a bit colder than in the UK and the summer's are glorious with the average temperature during summer time being 30°C. Autumnal days are generally bright with clear blue skies and can be surprisingly warm even into November. Spring days are crisp and bright and a joy to experience.

Sarlat

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 morning. If you can catch the early morning sunshine on the yellow sandstone buildings, so much the better. Before setting off for your walk around Sarlat, visit the tourist office which can provide a suggested walking tour to take in the key attractions.The tourist information office is near to the cathedral.

Sarlat has many many restaurants, bars and cafes and one of the many joys of staying in Sarlat is discovering them!

"Great stay!"

Charming vintage caravan, beautiful setting & shear comfort - we absolutely loved staying in Chestnut for the week! The separate bathroom/shower facility was a real plus, the cabin also had a comfy so… More
