“A luxury glamping retreat hidden away amongst rolling and tranquil countryside of the Dordogne in south-west France.”

Description of Quirky Camping

Three luxury yurt retreats hidden away amongst the rolling and tranquil countryside of the north Dordogne, an hour’s drive from Bergerac.

Quirky Camping Luxury Eco Yurts offer you the perfect, outdoorsy glamping holiday but with lots of creature comforts!

Peace, quiet and real relaxation is guaranteed in this secluded space.

Magnificent views, stunning sunsets, wildlife on your doorstep and superb star gazing from your terrace! Breakfast and dinners served on your deck by request.

The yurts have been lovingly hand-made by Quirky Camping using willow from the owners own plantation.

These yurts are much more than just a bedroom a living space as well, with a polished wooden floor, rugs, sofas and chairs and other furniture which has been bought from local brocantes and carefully restored.

Each yurt retreat has its own quirkily built and well equipped summer kitchen, dining terrace and BBQ, as well as a solar powered private bathroom and separate private compost toilet, all made from local, recycled or reclaimed materials wherever possible.

Quirky Camping is situated on a smallholding in a beautiful rural location not far from the small but charming town of Verteillac, where the owners Matt and Wendy are striving to live a sustainable and more self sufficient life-style.

The large potager can supply you with a vast selection of organic fresh fruit, veg and herbs, the hens supply lovely fresh eggs, the newly adopted bees are busy making honey and there may be the chance of home reared lamb and pork depending on when you visit – look out for the sausages, they are to die for!

Order a breakfast hamper for the next morning, dinners served on your deck by prior arrangement.

The Bodger's Yurt retreat has been designed for people who love trees!

Situated on the edge of a small copse it consists of a semi-underground roundhouse kitchen with terrace as well as a nearby yurt.

This unit is the essence of tranquillity, on those intensely hot and sunny days its nice to laze in one of the hammocks under the dappled shade of oaks, walnut, acacia, laburnum, hazel and ash trees, but there are also glades for any sun lovers and a pole lathe for the more active!

Other Accommodation at Quirky Camping

La Cabushe & Les Abris Yurts are the other two retreats at Quirky Camping.

Although they are apart from each other they do share the same wide open views of rolling countryside, amazing sunsets and clear starry nights - perfect for enjoying a bit of that well known sunny Dordogne weather!

Les Abris has two yurts situated either side of the kitchen so it's perfect if you want to invite your friends to join you on holiday!

All the yurts have a double bed & are designed with couples in mind.

Communal Areas

  • None, everything is private

All facilities are private to you - you are totally self-contained and each kitchen is really well equipped so that you can make the most of the brilliant local food.

Your bathroom and compost loo are conveniently close to your yurt and there is an additional bathroom near the house too.

What to bring?

  • Torches
