Wild woodland camping with the added luxury of a pool and restaurant
Huttopia Lanmary proudly claim to be “wilder than a campsite” and, peering through the leaves that surround their forest pitches, it’s hard to disagree. There’s nothing pruned or manicured about this place, nature is found much as nature should be, and the tents, dotted in clearings among the trees, sit subtly among it all like oversized bugs snoozing in the shade. It’s no surprise to discover the campsite is run in association with France’s National Forestry Commission – a location like this deserves to be preserved – but it is a surprise to find there are still some thoroughly modern campsite facilities carefully positioned around the woods. Despite their ‘wild’ credentials this is still a family-focused place.

Tents are in their element here. Pitches range from the snug and natural ‘forest spots’ described above, to the more campervan friendly ‘space spots’, out in the sunny grassland where the trees open up and electrical hook-ups can be found. There are also a range of pre-pitched glamping options that give the site its name – the huts of Huttopia. All are built to the strictest eco-friendly guidelines with untreated Douglas wood giving a fragrant woody smell and ever continuing to blend in as their surfaces begin to age. Inside, they include cooking facilities, wood-burning stoves, beds and all the linen and bedding required. The largest huts even have a master mezzanine level upstairs.

It’s almost with disbelief, then, that we tell you about the swimming pool, the bar-restaurant and the indoor living area, a place where you can lounge around on sofas or borrow board games if it rains. Where, you might well wonder, has all this ‘wilderness’ they boasted gone? The answer, however, lies in the ethos of it all. Yes, you’ll find all the usual French campsite staples: fresh bread to order every morning, a boules pitch, and children’s activities run throughout peak season, but first and foremost the place is still governed by the trees. Mornings are spent listening to the birdlife, evenings are soundtracked by the gentle rattle of branches overhead and every photograph you take is speckled by the dappled shade the leaves cast across your face. The furthest, most forest-like pitches can only be reached on foot and all the accommodation is built on stilts or wheels, so they can be moved around allowing different areas to re-grow. “Wilder than a campsite” may be a bit of a stretch, but it’s certainly wilder than most.

What a privilege! Sleeping in the national forest of Lanmary in the Dordogne. Have a unique experience on a site in the heart of the forest in the Périgord. Enjoy a comfortable stay in the tranquillity of Huttopia Lanmary campsite and discover the forest in a whole new way. At the end of the day, take a dip in the beautiful swimming pool with your family before enjoying dinner on the terrace.
Nearby attractions
The remote feel of the campsite does come at a cost – you'll have to hop in the car to find the nearest supermarket and there aren't really any shops within walking distance, so remember to stock up. For country persuits, however, it's ideal. There are bikes available to rent and you can quickly link up with a long distance cycle route that takes you straight to Perigueux, home to several excellent museums. Brantome, popular for boat and canoe rental for paddling on the Dordogne, and Bourdeilles, for its maginificent castle (00 33 5 53 05 65 65), are also worth a visit.
Food and drink
The café-restaurant opens for breakfast or you can order fresh bread and pastries the evening before, collect it in the morning and eat it back at the tent. Meals generally start at around €10 and there are freshly produced pizzas (made with organic flour and tomatoes) cooked in a wood-fired oven. BBQs are available for anyone to use in the communal areas dotted around the site.
