About Glamping Tipis

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 wanted to create an exciting alternative family holiday place for adults and kids to enjoy together.

Swimming Lagoon

  • Plenty of activities for the children
  • Good family memories
  • Comfy beds, duvets and linen
  • Private bathrooms
  • Bar, kitchen and eating areas
  • Giant tipis with cosy lighting
  • Tasty food
  • Great aesthetics and atmosphere
  • Plenty of space, starry nights and sunny days

 

Tipis

We bought the tipis from a company in America renowned for tipi making. They are the biggest they do giving a floor area of 50m² (500 sq/ft) and six metres high inside. With the poles they stand eight metres tall. They all have traditional Indian designed artwork painted on them. 

Each tipi has a superking bed and three or four single beds. The mattresses are very comfortable and all the linen is good quality white cotton.  All duvets and pillows are hypoallergenic.

The floors have a specially made waterproof ground sheet with various animal skins scattered on them. There is also chest of drawers, chests and small tables. Each tipi has electric sockets, bedside lamps, fairy lights and good wifi signal.

The tipis are lined inside with canvas and together with the spacious volume, this all helps to keep the heat of the day out and an even temperature. All the entrances face east so in the morning the first thing you see is the rising sun. This is another Indian tradition.

La Mer

The Glamping Ground is vast and open with views across the Charente countryside and plenty of space for the little people to play in. It’s also designed so mum and dad can keep a close eye on things whilst relaxing themselves.

In 2015 we brought the sea to Glamping Tipis by creating our own lagoon and beach. We call it La Mer!

We excavated 500m2 of our field to create La Mer. The beach, made up of 100 tonnes of sand, surrounds the 250m2 of water. The salt water is kept clear using sand filters and electrolysis 24/7.

– 

The entire area has a 1.5 metre fence surrounding it with a self closing gate that young kids cannot open. You also get wifi here!

In addition to La Mer, the kids have plenty of space to play in along with the wooden Viking Ship, our zip wire and loads of toys and games, such as table tennis, badminton, baseball, cricket, boules, bikes…etc.

Woody’s

Woody’s is the bar, kitchen and the hub of Glamping Tipis. Woody’s terrasse is shaded by huge trees and is perfect to relax, eat lovely food and drink good wine.

– 

From the terrasse you have far reaching views of countryside and you can also keep an eye on the kids playing on most things we have to offer.

– 

Woody’s kitchen is packed with all you need to prepare, cook, drink and serve. Each tipi has a fridge here and freezer space. There is a mini barista coffee machine, toaster, kettle, big oven, gas hob, sink, hot water, etc. 

We have loads of plates, bowls, mugs, cutlery, serving plates, glasses, saucepans, chopping boards, etc.

Woody’s bar is also the pass for the terrasse and the sound system lives here so you can DJ your own sounds.

– 

Woody’s is designed to be different, fun and functional. 

Bathrooms

On our World tour we realised that having your own private bathroom is really important.

We designed separate bathrooms to be installed into a renovated pig shed. We have finished three completely (one for each tipi). There is also a laundry room with a washing machine, tumble dryer and butler sink for you to use. 

– 

Each bathroom is very spacious with a large walk-in shower, loo, basin set on a Singer sewing machine base, vanity table and mirrors.

– 

We used colour impregnated plaster on the walls, walnut stained floorboards and modern white hardware.

– 

We supply all the white fluffy towels and loo rolls.

– 

All the lights are automatic and the doors are keyless entry. Each bathroom has it’s own hot water tank, electric sockets and a safe.

MEET YOUR HOSTS

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.
