30/04 - 05/05 2017 We did indeed have a great time, both visiting and staying at your place, taking in the peace and quiet. The kids loved it despite no internet and that speaks for itself!! We had fires and bbqs and took turns to tell tales and the boys had male bonding at the lake! Love to yous all xx
september 2017 Thanks very much for a wonderful visit earlier this month. We can't fault the hospitality you showed us as we travelled down through France. What a wonderful location. The mod cons provided certainly made camping a more civilised experience! We are sure to return.

 We have just returned from a fab 2 week holiday in France, we spent our first week here and what an amazing experience it was, The owners Helen and Chris couldn't do enough to help us out and anything we needed help with they were more the happy to accommodate, we will definitely return, thanks for a lovely week! The men and kids loved fishing in the lake and the stars at night were an added bonus, we even witnesses a few shooting stars- Julie Hutchinnson

June 2015

"Une belle première pour ces 3 nuits passées en yourtes mongoles situées à Angelar lieu dit dans Compreignac... Helen et Chris nous accueillent avec beaucoup de gentillesse sur cette grande propriété bordée d'un lac et d'une pâture où se trouvent des ânes. Nous avons passés un beau week-end en pleine campagne limousine en marge du trail à Ambazac... Nous n'avons pas profité de la piscine car étant un peu frileux... Idéal pour les barbecues, cuisinières à gaz également... 
Un bon moyen de couper de la vie classique en location de gite ou hôtel. Il s'agit de faire du camping différemment, avec un peu plus de confort... Un bel endroit et un super accueil! Merci!

Hi Helen and Chris

Had a good journey back yesterday the roads were empty apart from all the British heading home from the half term break! We would just like to say we had a fantastic holiday and thank you so much for everything, the hamper was a life saver and we so loved the site it was perfect for the Hodges. We were so impressed with the way you both work so hard juggling so many different jobs but still had time for us and made us so welcome. we would all love to come back but we must pay off this one first (said Tim!!) Please can you tell me what I friend request for Facebook as want to share with like minded glampers your lovely yurts and site.All the best for the rest of the season and hope others enjoy their time as much as we did. Love Fiona xx

We really enjoyed being here in this lovely part of the country. The yurt was cmfortable and cozy and the kitchen area had everything we could have needed!

We enjoyed it so much! I loved exploring in the forest, also going in the swimming pool. We had bonfires most nights and they were awesome! We made some friends and we ♥ Blaze. The beds in the yurt were really comfy, and I had lots of good night sleeps. I thought that roasting marshmallows was the best part out of everything. Lots of love from Grace and Ruben

Dear Helen and Chris many thanks for a great time my son and me really enjoyed our stay many thanks - Colin
14 - 21 August  This was our second visit to "Le Chene Vert" and we were somewhat worried that it would not live up to our first visit in that we might have exaggerated our view in our minds. Although on arrival we knew this was not the case. Simply idyllic, although there was not quite as much sunshine this year! Chris and Helen you are great hosts. Thank you. Pen and Jeff..
7 - 14 August  The kids liked the swimming pool and badminton net. OMG what can I say, it was beautiful. Thank you. The whole yurt experience was amazing. Thank you for your individual attention, much appreciated. Heather and Mark. xx
31 - 7 August  It was Fun. A great yurt experience. The boys never asked where was the TV once. Lots to do and we now have a badminton champion in the family. Recommend it to everyone. Paul and Kirsty
2 - 6 August  Had a wonderful stay in the yurt. Great to meet you both Helen + Chris and look forward to coming back. Fantastic location. John and Jo x
24 - 30 July  The yurts are an amazing experience - warm and cosy. Kids have really enjoyed themselves & thank you so much for your wonderful grounds, service and hospitality. Will definitely return. Many happy memories eating al fresco and chatting around the fire. Thank you v. much xx Emily, Harris and the kids
24 - 30 July 


We had a fab time Helen and Chris. Thank you 4 your hospitality. The yurts were warm and cosy, the hamper was a bliss as we arrived so late the night before, and thank you for waiting up for us (4am!!) The kids loved the stay too. I love the privacy of your location, we will definitely be recommending and hope to see you again. Keep up the good work :-) Reem and Chris

15 - 22 July  The setting is absolutely brilliant, surrounded by trees with our own private lake which is enchanting with either the sun or the moon shinning on it. The"Ger" was great, romantic & warm. It was very hard getting out of bed in the morning and we found ourselves going to bed earlier each night just to light the candles and look through the crown wheel. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed, except a corkscrew! but we fixed that. It was great preparing the food and eating outdoors. the welcome hamper was a really nice touch and much appreciated. It was a shame we couldn't get the box on the bike! Having bread, butter and pate meant that we could rest after our journey without going shopping till the next day. The courgette cake and homemade lemon curd was divine and a really nice friendly gesture to come back from the beach an find it had magically appeared. Loved getting in the pool each day as the weather was scorching. We would change nothing, though something to lie on down by the lake would be good. Don't want to share this place but would have great difficulty in keeping in quiet. My extended family would be at home here and we are definitely going to bring the children here next year. We ate in Le Florid which was very nice, but the Moulin at Margnac was exceptional and good value. The lac du St. Pardoux was a great day out and the kids would love it. 10/10 for facilities and cleanliness. We had a great time.
15 - 21 July 

The yurt is beautiful and comfortable and we loved cooking in the open kitchen. The green space and trees are beautiful and provided both shelter and entertainment for the children. We appreciated the personal touches like eggs from your chickens and candles for the yurt.

Many of the pots and pans have non-stick surfaces and I would change these for stainless steel.

I would tell people that we enjoyed our stay and that Le Chene Vert is a great place for families groups to enjoy some time together while exploring the area.

10 - 13 April  Had a lovely time regardless of the weather. Will be sure to recommend to friends. Yurt is an excellent standard.
