Farmstay in a safari tent or gite, food forest, permaculture and delicious food

Let Nature Nurture you and come to resource yourself at Simply Canvas Farm

On the border of the Lot et Garonne and Dordogne departments, tucked away between hills filled with sunflowers and vineyards you find Simply Canvas Farm. A nature place where life strolls in a gentle way along small country roads, waving hammocks and a crackling campfire. The food comes from our own garden or from local growers, there are beautiful medieval villages close by (like Eymet and Duras) and people have the time to sit down with a croissant at their favorite café and discuss the week.

Enjoy workshops, retreats and holiday from May to September.

Stay in one of our big 6 safari lodge tents (with their own bathroom and kitchenette) or in one of the 3 cottages or tiny house. All situated on 12.5 acres of land. Nature is at the heart of our place, we design our land according to food forest and permaculture principles, we make our own flower essences of plants and flowers. Of course there is a swimming pool. We are close to Bergerac on the edge of the Lot et Garonne and Dordogne in SW France (If you look from your cell phone, keep it on its side, the website will look much nicer).




A Time and a Place for Everyone

Retreats and Workshops

We receive several beautiful and interesting people who come to guide workshops and retreats in the area of mindfulness, dancing, singing, self reflection, meditation and more. Check out our retreat page for an overview. The spoken language can be in English, Dutch and French (or sometimes English and Dutch together).

Holiday with Teenagers

After many requests we now reserve two summer weeks especially for families with teenagers (in 2024 from 27 July - 10 August). We don't organize anything special, but it is great fun to find other teenagers your age while you are here.

Our six Safari Tents offer a true Glamping or luxurious camping experience with each their own bathroom, boxspring beds, electricity and cooking facilities. Or choose one of the three self catering B&B cottages or gites of which one is so spacious you'll never want to leave. All is situated on our 12.5 acre property in the middle of the country side with superb views and of course a large enclosed swimming pool for all. Also all accommodations receive fresh bread for breakfast (you take care of the rest yourself), during the summer holidays (for groups we it is often different). There is a large permaculture parc of 12.5 acres, Sandra and Santi offer a warm welcome, there are farm animals and unspoiled views, delicious meals. There is lots of stuff to do in the beautiful surroundings.

Flower essences

We are very proud to introduce a new product that comes form our own land, flower essences (maybe you know Bach Flowers or Rescue Remedy). They are basically magic drops that work a little like homeopathy and we are happy to share more about them.
