A taste of Mongolia in Limousin

Yurts have been the traditional dwellings of Mongolia since the time of Genghis Khan. Traditionally they are known as "Gers" . They are round tents made of felt and cotton canvas with a wooden lattice structure and a large domed top. The beauty of this is that they provide all round head height. Their unique design also makes them warm in winter and cool in summer, and more importantly for the nomadic Mongolians they are portable

  Le Chene Vert in the Haute Vienne offers luxury camping in a Mongolian Yurt. Everything you need is provided for a week self catering holiday. Full size beds and duvets mean you get a good nights sleep, and the luxury welcome hamper is full of treats such as organic toiletries and champagne. Crockery and towels are also provided.
