Glamping in France at Featherdown Farm, your children will love visiting La Ferme des Champeaux as there is a lot of fun outdoor stuff to keep them busy! Take a bicycle ride in the area, (you can rent bicycles for both adults and children on site), see the wild ducks and rabbits close to your tent…this will most definitely keep your kids amused! There are pony rides, a chicken coop where you can grab eggs for yourselves, not to mention the goat that has to be milked every day. Feel free to pick all your own fresh seasonal vegetables in the beautiful garden kitchen, then why not use these ingredients to make a great soup? There are also farm products for sale from the farm larder too, including delicious venison if you fancy it.
See deer grazing in the fields around the farm in close proximity to the tents. In the spring, between May and mid-June, fawns are born, and during the summer, you may see the adult deers with their antlers growing back.
Your hosts, Amélie and Thomas have four children, Vianne, Paco, Luc and Lorrain who thoroughly enjoy the lifestyle they have chosen on their 40-hectare farm. It certainly keeps them busy as they have 80 ewes to milk and have 3 sows, which twice a year give birth to a number of piglets which are raised with the calves. And last but not least, there are the 4 working horses and 6 horses that are ridden for leisure. Unique to this farm is the absence of tractors: the horses do all the work on the land. How much fun would it be to spend a holiday amongst all these animals and in nature?
Amélie and Thomas are looking forward to showing you around their farm. They would also like you to think of your stay with them as a shared chance to hone language skills! It’s a perfect opportunity to practice your French!
