An unusual stay in a glamping cabin in Cathar country
Life on the campsite, with the joys of the great outdoors and an atmosphere conducive to relaxation, coupled with the pleasure of a comfortable, cosy vacation rental: that’s how you define a vacation in the wooden Cabane sur pilotis at La Serre campsite!
This new state of mind has sprouted from the latest evolution of camping towards a most seductive concept: glamping.
A contraction of the two words “camping” and “glamour”, it’s all about trading in your cramped, hard-to-fold old tent for much more spacious, well-equipped accommodation, without abandoning all the aspects that make camping so charming: the outdoors, conviviality, the link with nature.
A wooden cabin on stilts is the ideal solution.
A pretty little house built entirely of wood, the materials used in the Cabane sur pilotis blend in perfectly with its surroundings.
Lost in the middle of nowhere in the south of France, you’d almost think it was perched in the trees from its gentle slope, but it’s actually the stilts that allow it to be raised.
The result is a breathtaking view over the rolling, sun-drenched Ariège countryside.
To make the most of this exceptional view, sit on the terrace of the wooden hut on stilts: an excellent vantage point!
With a surface area of 15m², semi-covered for shade during the day, and secured by a wooden railing, the terrace is a living space in its own right, with birds and butterflies as its companions.
We gather around the dining table for those lovely, balmy Ariège evenings…
Surrounded by greenery and protected by tall trees, your cabin offers perfect privacy for your stay: at La Serre eco-camping, everything has been done to ensure peace and quiet for each pitch, which is pleasantly isolated from one another.
All the comforts of glamping in a wooden cabin on stilts
Thanks to its French windows, you can spend your time between the outside and inside of the Cabane en bois sur pilotis: a veritable cocoon for glamping vacations, the luminosity, the evening lighting, the omnipresent wood, the complete furnishings, the sober and elegant decor, all combine to make this little house a pleasant place to live.
The living room is in constant communication with the terrace and the open kitchen, which features all the equipment you need for a completely self-sufficient stay: 2-burner gas hob, extractor hood, sink, coffee maker, dishwasher, fridge, etc., not forgetting the barbecue available to holidaymakers, from which the delicious smells of grilled meats escape!
Thanks to its well-thought-out configuration, the Cabane en bois sur pilotis can easily accommodate up to 5 people without getting in each other’s way.
Its 24m² surface area includes an adult bedroom with a double bed, then three single beds: two alcove bunk beds share the living area, with the option of sleeping an extra person on the sofa bed.
To complete the picture, the Cabane en bois sur pilotis is equipped with its own bathroom, complete with shower and toilet – an additional, and not insignificant, element of comfort!
Thanks to this glamping configuration, the Cabane en bois sur pilotis is the perfect natural base for any type of holiday, whether you’re going on a family vacation with the kids, with friends for a relaxing getaway in Ariège, or as a couple to enjoy this intimate haven of peace in the heart of nature…
