About Us

Auvergne Naturelle is Robert, Kathryn and our little helpers, Daisy (age 13) and Olive (age 11). Our love of nature and the outdoors brought us to this beautiful part of France in 2009.


We wanted to combine our passion and enthusiasm for the area and provide a holiday experience which can be shared by everyone. As the site is small and intimate, consisting of only four yurts, we are able to offer a more personal approach and provide a special holiday to all our guests.


We are committed to protecting the environment around us and intend to have as little impact as possible on this beautiful area. The yurts blend in with the surroundings and are made from ash coppice which is important for the sustainability of the woodland. We have composting toilets which are luxurious but eco-friendly to complement the yurts. The lighting is also low impact so that you can benefit from the stunning night skies with the vast array of stars.

Our Courses

The bushcraft courses are ran by Robert who is a qualified instructor, recently completing a course in Sussex, ran by a colleague of Ray Mears. He is passionate and enthusiastic about the area and loves to share his knowledge with others.
