Brand New Beachfront Safari Tents in Brittany

Glamping at its very best!  Six safari tents, each with private sundeck, just metres from a secluded beach.  Set in the ‘Baie de la Foret’ where unspoilt landscapes meet a crystal clear water secluded beach, this is the ultimate spot for a back to nature holiday.  An idyllic setting in which to kick back and enjoy life.

The six ‘Archipel’ safari tents and the three ‘Atoll’ tents all have comfortable bedding and wood burning stoves.  All sit on wooden sundecks with sheltered outdoor kitchens and seating areas from where you can enjoy the view. There are two green roofed bath houses, located just a few metres from the tents with flushing toilets, hot showers, wash basins and sinks.

The lodges have a direct view of the secluded beach below but the site is fenced so children can play safely in the surrounding grounds.  The sea is super child-friendly, with no currents or big waves.

If you ever tire of the beach and sea swimming on site (which we doubt), there are bikes available to hire on site.  The trails of Fousnant country are just waiting to be explored, there’s a golf club down the road, tennis nearby, and a whole host of watersports to get involved with including scuba diving, sailing and canoeing.  There are tiny romantic coves and white sandy beaches, and for the culture vultures, head inland to the Cathedral St Corentin and the Breton County Museum.

Each tent can accommodate a family of four and is furnished with wrought iron lamps, crystal chandeliers and cabinets made by local craftsmen.   You might have a round bed, an inlaid wooden bed or a handcrafted bamboo bed – each one is unique. Each tent sits within a private tropical garden, with a 5m x 3m pool which overlooks a forest of coconut palms. All tents and cabins are equipped with air-conditioning, a mini fridge, an iPod dock, an internal phone service and a Wi-Fi connection.

The Sandat Glamping site is located near Ubud, a town in central Bali, and if you want to experience traditional Balinese culture then this is the place to do it. There are temples and historic sites to discover, rice paddies, coconut groves and mountains to explore, and traditional experiences to enjoy.  Bali is a feast for the senses.
