Glamping in France

By  |  0 Comments


Feather Down is the premier glamping provider in the UK, but did you know we also have wonderful locations in France? From the historic setting of Normandy to the beautiful beaches of Brittany, our French farms combine stunning scenery with the chance to taste delicious local produce. We’re looking for journalists and bloggers to try out the Feather Down experience in France, so if you’re interested, get in touch!

Bonneblond  is a tranquil oasis located right in the middle of France. There’s enough to keep the whole family entertained here, from the private lake for swimming and fishing to the network of beautiful walks which spread out around the tents. Staying at Bonneblond allows guests to truly experience rural France, as the farm is deep in the French countryside. This doesn’t mean a lack of home comforts though, as farmers Helen and Willem make up a batch of delicious fresh bread every morning.

Normandy is a beautiful part of France, and La Ferme de la Folivraie really sums up the best of the region. This peaceful farm is in close proximity to both the beaches and an adorable little limestone village. There’s an abundance of riches for history lovers, as close by is the seaside town in which William the Conqueror built his boats, the fields which formed the battleground for the Hundred Years War, and the beach on which the Allied forces landed on D-Day. Folivraie has a history of its own too, as it was the first Feather Down farm in France!

An organic dairy farm in Brittany, Penquellen Huella is just perfect for family holidays. Children can watch the cows being milked or roam through the woodland around the tent, stopping to play in the indoor play barn. What’s more, the farm is only 30 minutes from the beautiful sandy beaches of Concarneau. Although the farm is in the heart of the Brittany countryside, it’s easily reachable from London, as it’s a 40 minute drive from Quimper Airport.

Glamping is a blend of ‘glamorous’ and ‘camping’. Camping usually brings to mind a tent, air mattresses, a gas cooker and communal showers. Feather Down thought ‘We can do better!’ The Feather Down glamping concept combines the cosy feeling of camping with the luxury of a cottage. No stress about setting up tents, leaky air mattresses or scurrying across the camping site with a roll of toilet paper; instead the pure luxury of high-quality mattresses, a well-equipped kitchen, and a private shower and toilet.


European leader in glamping holidays, Feather Down, once again offers its luxurious accommodations at the most beautiful locations in the UK and abroad. Holidays with Feather Down are about getting back to the simple life, without electricity and Wi-Fi. The concept was born about 10 years ago in the Netherlands, and Feather Down now has thousands of customers from all over the UK and Europe; in the Netherlands, Germany, France, Belgium and the US. An original holiday for families that is all about total relaxation.
