Our yurts: an original holiday experience

Yurts originated in Mongolia, a vast country with a great variety of landscapes (such as steppe, the Gobi desert and the Altai Mountains), where they are called “ger”. Yurts have long been the traditional dwellings of the nomadic peoples of Central Asia, who migrate with them to find pastures new and shelter from the glacial north wind in the winter.

Our campsite offers traditional yurts of 26 square metres, which are comfortably fitted out to accommodate up to 4:

  • Among them, our couple’s yurt has a large bed and a Mongolian sofa that can be converted into a single bed – ideal for a couple by themselves or with one child. A Mongolian sink rounds off the equipment in this yurt.
  • The four other yurts all have single beds for 2 to 4 and a low table with stools.
  • 4 of our Mongolian yurts – including the couple’s yurt – have a wood stove for use during the months when nights are cold (April, May, June, September, October).

All our yurts are close to the sanitary facilities.

Lighting is provided by solar lamps (there is no electricity in the yurts).

Communal kitchen

The communal kitchen is reserved for our chalet guests and optionally for those staying in the yurts. It is equipped with:

A five-burner gas cooker; a dishwasher (reserved for groups/families of 6 or more); a microwave; a fridge; a coffee machine; two kettles; a toaster; crockery with cutlery, kitchen utensils and storage cupboards. An internal and an external sink.

The countertops have enough space for everyone while encouraging you to meet your fellow-campers and exchange recipes!

Adjacent to the kitchen is a refectory-tent on a wooden deck with tables and benches for sheltered meals in any season (wheelchair-accessible).

Of course, you can also use your cooking gear in front of your yurt, or try the local cuisine of the Trois Evêchés inn in the village (200 m from the campsite), or in one of the restaurants/bistros of the Digne-les-Bains area.

Mandala Yurt: a space for activities and introspection

This contemporary yurt of 41 sq m is available as a workshop space by the day, or for a weekend or as accommodation in low season.

Exterieur Yourte MandalaInterieur Yourte Mandala

Made in France and set up without insulation, this is a light and spacious yurt, perfect for yoga, meditating or arts. It hosts our yoga sessions during the summer and during our week-long Hiking & Yoga holidays.

Depending on the season, this yurt, which sits on a handsome larch floor and has no furnishings, can also be used to accommodate groups looking for inexpensive accommodation that is more comfortable than a tent.

Why not organise your courses on our campsite, using the large yurt as the activity space! The chalets and/or yurts will provide you with accommodation in calm and natural surroundings, far removed from the tourist thoroughfares.
