Welcome to La Fortinerie

La Fortinerie is a ‘longere’ over 300 years old, it is a small farm typical of the region, with 4 acres of wooded land and open grounds. It is nestled in the Foret de Monnaie and surrounded by woodland; a place where you can really get a breath of fresh air. The forest consists of oak, beech and scots pine; you will also find a variety of flora and fauna around the edges of the ponds and streams which run through it.

La Fortinerie welcomes you with a warm reception and a touch of comfort. Whether you choose to bring your caravan/motorhome, camp, stay in one of our Glamping units or opt for a stay in our farmhouse, our guests are welcome to enjoy the slower pace of life here with the added bonus of a few extra home comforts. This is the place to sit, relax and unwind, away from the everyday stresses of life. We hope we can welcome you to our home soon.

La Fortinerie has had a complete renovation of its facilities and accommodation. The main campsite is open now. The Safari tent, Bell tent and farmhouse have been available since 2nd June 2018 and we are currently taking bookings for 2019.

We are still looking to continue with improvements to the facilities on offer for our 2019 season. One nice addition will be a 4 meter diameter pool for the sole use of our farmhouse visitors. example pool picture
