“1 night in roulotte.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

We stayed one night in a roulotte. The reception staff were welcoming and quick. The roulottes were situated in the trees, and we found they were well spaced and very shady which was lovely because it was over 30 degs when we stayed there. Fly screens on the doors and windows would have been a good idea. They were small, but well formed! Clean and with everything you needed.

We didn't try the parc defi, or any of the other paying activities.

The swimming pool was a bit small for the number of visitors, but clean.

We were hoping to try the restaurant, but frankly dinner menu was 29 euros a head, and they had a menu formule at 15 euros which might have been ok, but as it was menu 'mystere' we couldn't risk it.

The wooden cabins, and tree houses looked interesting.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

I was a little concerned about this trip, having read some of the reviews and being both retired and disabled - but my friends had booked it and invited me to join them! We had a wonderful few days staying in extraordinary accommodation (The Sprites' House) which was built entirely of wood. The rooms were all clean, the beds comfortable and though the 'house' was cold when we arrived it soon heated up once we switched the heating on. The accommodation had everything we needed, though you need to remember to brings towels. The site has many interesting features and activities and I would have loved to have had my great- grandchildren with me because it was a haven for children. I think, if taking children, it would be important to take one of the offers which includes all the activities because individually would prove expensive. We ate in the restaurant on two evenings and the food was excellent; so altogether a wonderful experience.

I stayed at Domaine de Dienne for 2 nights with my husband, and I thought it was wonderful!! Sleeping together up in a tree, hearing the wind softly at night while cuddling, AND having a bathroom and a little kitchen, all the comfort you need, UP IN A TREE!! It was a perfect little going away trip.

We did the "parcours aventure", climbing in the trees whith big tyroleans, really fun!!! and with good instructors.

We tried Defiplanet, didn't really know what it was before going in, but realized that it was super good for both adults and children!! If you want to learn while having fun at the same time, try it!! I'd never seen anything like it...

at nights we ate at the restaurant, very good food for a reasonable price, with a staff always nice and smiling.

We will definitely go back, but this time we'll bring our children and stay for 1 week maybe, since we didn't have time to do all the activities in just 2 days, so much things to do!! :D

We (2 adults, 3 children) stayed in a gypsy caravan at Domaine de Dienne for a week in August. The campsite is located on the outskirts of a small village but was easy to get to with sat nav. Although the caravans are not large they were bigger than expected with a show and toilet room, a kitchen area (sink, hob and fridge), a TV with digital French channels and one main bedding area (the other beds made from two seating areas and a pullout. The caravan was very comfortable and provided everything we needed. They are located in a very pleasant wooded area with cars parked away from the caravans. The campsite has two small swimming pools (one indoor, one outdoor) although their size was a not a problem when we were there. There is a small bar selling drinks and ice creams and the restaurant (although we didn't eat there).
There is a lovely kids play area which is also where there are a range of zipwires suitable for children up to experiences adults. We paid for two children to do it which cost about £20 and was well worth it. The campsite has an equestrian centre, a volleyball court and various outdoor gym equipment. The majority of staff only speak French although at least two on reception were fluent in English. From Dienne there are number of places to visit (Poitiers, Futuroscope, Valles des Singes etc) and to experience rural France. I would certainly stay here again and the price was very reasonable as we booked directly with the campsite.
