Chez Devalon

Not suitable for children

Pets welcome

Kids cannot be accommodated at Chez Devalon except as part of a booking for the whole site. Pets will be considered but at the owners discretion because of their own menagerie of rather varied animals.

A stunning roundhouse and yurt combination! The yurt bedroom and circular terrace kitchen make for a unique slice of peace and quiet

The Bodger's Yurt is almost misnamed. While you sleep in the yurt bedroom, the centre of the site is the gorgeous roundhouse kitchen that looks down from a little way up the hill on the yurt in its shaded woodland spot. The whole site is just for you and from the crisp linen of the cosy yurt to the views of the kitchen terrace, you'll feel spoilt and special for your whole stay. The Bodgers’ Yurt also features its own pole lathe - an intriguing old wood-turning tool with which you can make your own wooden mushroom and enter it into this season's competition. 

Chez Devalon as a whole sits in a beautiful spot overlooking countryside that epitomises southern France from its red tiled rooftops to its dusty country lanes. In their pastoral paradise Wendy and Matt have created three fabulous yurt camps, using local wood and Matt’s long experience of willow working.

Our guests say...

"We enjoyed our stay very much. Wendy and Matt are excellent hosts, all the family are so welcoming and genuinely friendly. Even the dogs, Bilbo and Tash where happy to greet us.  Wendy and Matt had considerable knowledge of the area, advising us on the best places to visit, best restaurants, and even the best local bar.  We found the yurt, kitchen and bathroom in excellent order. The bed was very comfortable with extra blankets available should they be required. The Eco Friendly orientation of the set up is wonderful, everything from the solar shower to the compost toilet is designed to minimise any impact on the environment, and it is a wonderful local environment.  I really enjoyed the use of the pole lathe, it soon becomes obvious that Matt is very experienced working with green timber, and he is very happy to pass on this knowledgeable. Like others before me I enjoyed turning the timbers and making my first wooden mushroom, very satisfying."
