Our Story

Le Pré des Chênes literaly Fiel of Oaks is a family venture, that started when we left our London life and moved into a derelict barn in the smallest village of the Dordogne Saint-Cassien next to Monpazier. Our aim ( dream ?) was to renovate our home, become almost self efficient and educate our future children with a complete sense of freedom and close to nature.

We now have a house almost finished, animals, vegetable plot, orchad, and 3 very happy boys. Since 2000, we have welcomed many of our friends and family here, and all of them agree to say that once they settle down here, they instantly reconnect to essentials : the pleasure of laying down on the grass and watch the stars on a late summer night, seating and listening to the birds around us, exploring the forest behind our field… simple moments of our lives, that became great holiday experiences !

This is what triggered the idea of this somewhat crazy project of creating a Glamping Camping small family site, in the meadow opposite our home. 2015 was when we first applied with the authorities for the land to become building land. After a lot of obstacles and a lot of bureaucracy, Garreth started to build in the autumn of 2020. He worked non stop for 2 years and in 2022, we will be so delighted to welcome you and introduce you to all the great places to visit , to eat, and entertain. It will be our pleasure to welcome you on our family eco friendly site , for a short break or longer holiday !

Hopefully we’ll see you soon ! …
