Nowadays, keeping our carbon footprint to a minimum is important to many so if you are looking for Eco-friendly accommodation in France you can find them in luxury yurts in many regions of France.

Even better, you can enjoy the true pleasures of the French, since French regions have vineyards of course, from Champagne and its bubbles, Burgundy and its light wines, Valley of the Languedoc and the full bodied sunny reds, Loire Valley for Cognac from Poitou-Charentes and Bordeaux from Gironde.

How and where to find French Yurt accommodation:

To start, here are some ideas:


ecovallee   is a family-run camp  set in 12 acres of land just 300m from the bastide town of Lalinde. Lodging consist of handcrafted chestnut and canvas yurt sleeping for four. Outside is a canvas-covered kitchen/dining area, a compost toilet and woodland play area as well as foraging pigs, free-range chickens (wake up to fresh eggs every morning) and Pepito, the owners’ horse.


lanzarote  an eco-luxury yurt is part of a collection of nine eco properties located on the family-run Finca de Arrieta estate, 30km from the capital, Arrecife. It sleeps up to five and is beautifully decorated with rich fabrics, wood flooring, and antique Mongolian hardwood furniture, such as the super king-size bed. It also has its own marble-floor bathroom, outdoor kitchen, and garden with a Polynesian-style daybed – perfect for a sundowner.

Auvergne Naturelle


 auvergnenaturelle  is located in Laval sur Doulon, a small village in the heart of the Livradois National Park. We are in the Haute Loire Department, the most southern department of the Auvergne region of France. The closest major towns are Clermont Ferrand and Le Puy en Velay, both approx 1 hour by car. Paris is approximately a 5-hour trip and Montpellier on the Mediterranean is 3 hours by car.

Getting ready for France

Start dreaming about the lavender fields, the French people’s Joie de vivre, and the French wine.
