La Grange du Bost in Dordogne is an organic farm located in the Périgord Vert, in the south-west of France. Fiona and her two children, Katy and Patrick, live on the farm and Chris who is a friend of the family, helps them with the management of the farm. This farm is comprised of 20 hectares of woods, meadows and fields. This farm was once devoted to the organic breeding of laying hens and now focuses on wildlife and the ecology of the area.
Fiona is planning to create a permaculture food forest and plant trees to fight against climate change. During your stay at the farm, you will be able to help them by planting and watering the trees! There are also wildlife-related activities available such as birdwatching where you will be able to spot orchids, butterflies or even bats (during a night walk). For the little ones, Fiona can also organize a children’s treasure hunt! Additional to these activities, you will meet the farm animals which children can interact with! There is the dog Ushi, three cats, a rabbit, several chickens, a horse, and a donkey.
During your unique glamping at the La Grange du Bost in Dordogne, children can explore on their own and play with swings, the playhouse, drive an old tractor. There is also badminton equipment at their disposal! There are many trails around the farm and Fiona has prepared guided sheets for these walks. If you are feeling more adventurous, explore the surrounding farm by renting bicycles!
During your glamping holiday at the farm, Fiona and Chris will show you how to reach the river Dronne that has some small sandy beaches nearby as well – they are only 5 minutes away from the farm! Canoes can be rented in Tocane, just 3 km from the farm. A temporary permit can be given to you if you want to go fishing by the river but you will have to use your own fishing equipment! Close to the farm, you will have the opportunity to visit a farm with goats and another with ostriches.
Start the day by ordering a breakfast box for 4 that is designed to last 2 days. There is a bookable barbecue box, stew or soup package for later. This gives you the ingredients so the whole family can pitch in on and cook together. More activities to develop a good appetite are just five minutes from the farm. There’s a little sandy beach by the river with a safe, shallow swimming zone and trips in small barges on the River Dronne to see the wildlife.
We would be delighted to welcome you to the heart of the Périgord Vert. Your children will make amazing discoveries and can play with our children and discover more!
We are excited to introduce you to our farm and hope to see you soon.
