  • 5 pitches

We invite you to stay at the Ferme de la Goursaline, our 3.3 hectare permaculture farm and discover a small oasis of biodiversity in a peaceful atmosphere. Listen to the buzzing of bees in spring, the singing of frogs, the concerts of birds, admire the ballet of dragonflies and surprise yourself to meet the gaze of a deer at dawn or dusk. On the program: a real immersion in a permaculture farm!

We have different accommodations available: two safari tents (35 and 45m2), a caravan and two wild camping pitches for tents, vans or motorhomes.

The safari tents include two separate bedrooms with a bunk bed in one and a 160x200cm bed in the other, a kitchen area with fridge and gas hob, a dining area and a furnished terrace.

The caravan includes a 140x 200cm bed, a kitchen area with fridge, sink and gas hobs, gas heating, a dining area, outdoor furniture to enjoy the beautiful summer evenings.

For campers in tents or in converted vehicles, you can connect to the sanitary facilities. We offer a wild camping experience, in the middle of nature, we do not have specific pitches as you will find in a traditional campsite.

The tents as well as the caravan do not have running water but we provide a supply of drinking water that you can fill at your convenience in the sanitary room not far from the tents. The sanitary room is a common area including electricity, 2 indoor showers with hot water, an outdoor solar shower, 2 dry toilets and an outdoor kitchen area.

Throughout the year, we regularly offer pizza evenings, musical evenings or half-day initiation to permaculture, do not hesitate to let us know your interests when booking!

We are located in the heart of the Périgord-Limousin Regional Natural Park, so take advantage of many hikes or bike rides, swimming in the surrounding rivers or in the lake in the leisure area located 5 minutes from us (Espace Hermeline in Bussière-Galant) or visit the pretty villages, caves and castles of Limousin.

For information, the tents are available from May 1 to September 30, the caravan and the campsite are available all year round. Prices include bed linen, tourist tax and cleaning costs. Pets are allowed (dogs on a leash).
