The Bodgers’ Yurt
Chez Devalon – Dordogne
Yurt for 2 from £65 per night
Not suitable for children
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.
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.
