Luxury glamping lodges in the heart of France's Périgord Noir.
Located just outside Thenon, an enticing little village in the South-West of France, Dordogne is home to Modern Nomads. The site was created in 2020 by an ambitious young couple who made a life-changing decision to leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind and relocate to the stunning, natural, and welcoming countryside. The owners have mastered the ability to create the perfect glamping home-away-from-home experience; they speak 7 languages and have extensive training in the local region to be best placed to offer walking tours and help you plan the best vacation ever.

Not only is this stunning glamping site situated in an ideal location for exploring the local areas — only three miles from the world-famous Lascaux Caves, and an equal distance between Sarlat, Perigueux, and Brive — Modern Nomads boasts five beautiful wood and canvas lodges, complementing the natural beauty of the forested land through bright airy rooms decorated with a charming wooden effect which provide a cosy, comfy, exclusive getaway for couples and families alike.

Modern Nomads ticks all the boxes for those looking to envelope themselves in the French countryside. You can spend your evenings gazing up at the starlit sky from your lodge with its own private terrace, swinging hammock, and telescope. Or you can relax with the site's alpacas, as your hosts introduce you to these smart animals, and even let you enjoy a spot of yoga with them (we assume they won't be doing the exercises, though). You can enjoy the captivating walks nearby, and explore the local village attractions such as the populous lively weekly market, a varied array of shops and restaurants, and a vibrant energetic bar that overlooks the lake and houses concerts and special events. It all adds up to an authentic glamping experience that brings you closer to nature without sacrificing comfort and relaxation. Between the glamping lodges, outdoor spaces, and a small farmhouse, it’s easy to create unforgettable moments in an idyllic setting. Celebrate your arrival with champagne, sit back on your private terrace and appreciate the peaceful and alluring view of the countryside greens.

Over the 37-acre site, there are lots of activities to take part in, including the sale of home-grown fresh fruits and vegetables, wine tasting twice a week, and fun games ranging from board games to badminton. Nearby, you can either venture down to the local village, or travel a slight little further afield to explore three medieval towns, all packed with history, arts, and culture. This includes one of the most highly-frequented and attractive towns, Sarlat, along with Thenon, home to the largest tree-climbing forest adventure park in Dordogne — we hope you’re not scared of heights!
