After travelling the world we decided to make some big changes in our lives for the better. We started our family in Sussex 2006 and then moved to the Charente, France in 2007. We now have three lovely girls aged 5, 9 and 10. We opened Glamping Tipis in 2013.
On our world tour we stayed at 44 different places which gave us a really good idea of what we love and enjoy.
We are John & Sam Kegg and our three daughters Florence 10, Isabelle 9 and Nellie 5 and our little dog, Bertie. We live and work here in the beautiful Charente region of south west France amongst the vines and the sunflower fields.
Sam is a classically trained and qualified chef with more than 20 years experience and registered traiteur here in France. Seldom is she seen without her apron, but if truth be know she loves nothing more than rustling up yet another masterpiece for hungry glampers.
John is qualified carpenter and joiner specialising in projects using reclaimed timber.
We moved to France from Sussex, England, in 2007 to take advantage of the rich and peaceful country life on offer in rural France.
Our aim was simple: to make Glamping Tipis a special place to stay, unwind, bask in the sunshine and share the finer things in life with your family.
We are flexible, which means you are not restricted to weekend changeovers (even in high season) because we know life is too random nowadays.
Each tipi sleeps up to 6 people. We provide plenty of options for sleeping arrangements for families and other groups, so please contact us.

Glamping Tipis in France is located in the beautiful Charente countryside, in a tiny village which offers peace, tranquility and views for miles around. You are, however, never too far away from a traditional boulangerie or French market and you can visit the Atlantic coast with a trip to La Rochelle or Ile de Ré.
Our nearest large towns for air or TGV links are Poitiers, Angoulême and La Rochelle. You can reach us in 5 – 8 hours by car from Channel Ports depending on crossings.
