Clothing optional / Naturist B&B in Northern France

May 19, 2018
tags: ,
  Kim and Steve welcome you to their clothing-optional / Naturist B&B.  It is set in the northern Pays de la Loire on the borders of Brittany and Normandy. The nearest towns are Ernee and Gorron but only 20 minutes from Mayenne, an ideal place for travellers en route to southern France or Spain for a stopover or as a base to discover this beautiful part of France.
After leaving the UK (Shropshire) in late 2015 they purchased a part renovation and have now opened it up as a clothing optional B&B  with campervan parking too. The work involved was difficult but well worth the effort in their opinion.
The property is set in 5 acres with a private garden and nature trail. A proportion of land has been set aside for animals and the growing of produce. Although very rural and peaceful they are only 5 minutes away from a small town with bars, eateries, shops and other facilities.
 Kim and Steve are looking forward to meeting up with naturist guests. For more information and pictures see and the Facebook page frenchcottagebandb.

TV company looking for naturist families in UK for documentary

July 27, 2017

7Wonder is making a new documentary exploring naturism and family life and is looking for families where the parents or grandparents are passionate and open about their naturist lifestyle but maybe the teenagers in their lives don’t share the same enthusiasm. The programme makers think this is particularly interesting as the teenage years tend to be when we are most body conscious, so it is an interesting juxtaposition when actually naturism is a world of such acceptance. The idea of the documentary is to build a better understanding of naturism, between the family members and also on a national scale.

If you are interested, please contact Laura Watt at 7Wonder: email, phone 0203 701 7599 or on Twitter @7WonderUK.

You must be 16 or over to apply.

Gite for naturists in Dordogne, South West France

January 21, 2017

2016_05_21eos-450d0003We are Jim and Nikki and we emigrated from England in February 2016. we were lucky enough to find a lovely property in the beautiful Southern Dordogne countryside. The property is situated in the Perigord region of France, famed for its delicious food and excellent red wines from Cahors and Bergerac.
The gite, La Foret, is ideal for a couple or a single person. It features spacious accommodation for two set in a secluded tranquil setting, with a private deck area, and large pool shared occasionally with us. We only have one occupancy at a time, so there will be no other guests.
This is the perfect base for exploring the beautiful Dordogne countryside, and visiting ancient towns and the amazing rivers of the Lot and the Dordogne for canoeing and other adventures.
The gite is set in 7 acres of gardens, paddocks and surrounded by forest. There is an abundance of bird-life, and Red Kites and Buzzards are regular overhead visitors.
The heated swimming pool is 11 metres by 5 metres and is secluded with a paved surround, ideal for getting that all over tan. There is even a double bed sunbed.
The gite is fully equipped, and we provide you with a welcome pack of local delicacies, and Nikki’s home made goodies. We have hammocks, Boules pitch and lots of garden games as well if you get bored of lying by the pool! The summerhouse is fully equipped with cooking facilities a fridge and music so you can have your own little party in the evening sunshine.
We are naturists ourselves, and we would love to share our little piece of France with others.nikki-s-jim-s-holiday-rental_
The nearest airports are Bergerac (45 mins) and Toulouse (90 mins). Reasonably priced hire cars are easily available at both airports. If travelling by car, Villefranche du Perigord is a one day drive from the ports of Caen, Dieppe and Roscoff. It would make an ideal stop-over on the way to the southern French naturist resorts of Belezy in Provence and Serignan Plage Nature and Cap d’Agde on the Mediterranean coast. La Jenny and the naturist beaches of the lovely Atlantic coast are about 3 hours drive to the west.
