Located just 90 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Paris, La Ferme de Fontenille offers peace and simplicity. Pitched amongst trees in green pastures, the six spacious canvas hideaways combine camping with luxury. Sleep under the stars, but still enjoy hot water, a private shower, heavenly beds and a fully equipped kitchen. Relax on the gorgeous site, go wild swimming in a nearby lake or do the rounds and meet the resident cows, pigs and goats. There’s lots to do on this lovely organic farm.

About this place

Best bits

  • The Saturday morning farm tours are a hit with all ages, meet cute farm animals and learn about everything from sowing seeds to harvesting.
  • Foodies will be in their element here. The farm shop is stocked up with delicious, locally grown fruit, vegetable, milk and meats. Legendary barbecues await.
  • The brilliantly luxurious tents – it's sleeping under canvas but with a wood burner, fluffy bedding and running water.

Top tips

  • The Farmers Stew and Soup kits are delicious, and a fun way to cook as a family – with local ingredients and over a cosy campfire.
  • Wild swimming in the lake at Monampteuil (just 15 minutes away!). It’s the best way to cool off on a summer's day.
  • The hot shower is outdoors and makes for a proper camping adventure. Come prepared with flip flops, a dressing gown and maybe a torch.

About the owners

Delphine and Gregoire

As parents to four girls ourselves, we know what families are looking for in a holiday. And a relaxing atmosphere and lots of nature are two big things. We love sharing our farm life with others, and want to make sure your stay with us is as educational and enjoyable as possible. Come and disconnect from daily life in this idyllic spot. 

Owner recommendations

  • The farm tour is a must during your stay to learn about regenerative farming.

  • Reims is just an hour's drive away and is certainly worth a visit. The picturesque town has lots of cafes, shops and attractions to check out. 

  • Bring your walking boots and set off on an adventure in the Forest of St Gobain. Feel free to ask us for route recommendations. 

  • Our French breakfast is a perfect way to start a relaxed farm day.
