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.
Truffe Noire is a 5 metre diameter, top of the range bell tent that has a proper king-sized bed with comfortable mattress (yes a proper bed!), two single futons with extra thick mattresses, jute floor matting, hand painted furniture 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 fitted with mesh doorways so that you can sleep under the stars allowing a breeze to blow through.
Truffe Noire is nestled in its own private area in the magical woodlands that surround La Blanquette. It has its own kitchen hut and private shower room (with electricity so that you are able to charge up those (non)essentials), outside dining area, hammock and barbecue. There is a waterproof shelter provided for outside dining on the occasion where we may get some summer rain or you can choose to eat in your tent. There is storage inside the tents as well as the ability to store items in the lockable kitchen huts and private shower rooms.
La Blanquette Glamping consists of two luxury bell tents, Truffe Noire and Chene Vert, and a vintage caravan with its own log cabin, Chestnut. If Truffe Noire isn't available for the dates that you would like then please search this site for one of the other glamping options. Each has 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.
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 free wifi available in the grounds and around the pool.
Glampers have the use of a shared washing machine.
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 as well) 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!
We also provide a daily freshly baked bread and pastries delivery service - direct to your door!
Bed linen is provided. Please bring your own towels.
An information pack with further details on the property and local area as well as ideas of things to do during your stay will be provided for you.
