Glamping at Moomba Lodge Hippo

The perfect glamping in France experience for families with young children

Our Safari Lodges are an attractive option for those who love to connect with the outdoors whilst still enjoying that sense of luxury. It’s all about enjoying the best of both worlds combining an experience with nature coupled with all of the comforts of home, and then some. With Pagel’s glamping in France experience, you really can get back to nature without roughing it in the bush!

Comfortably sleeps a family of 4 or 5

The glamping lodges provide attractive, spacious, eco-friendly accommodation with all the comfort of a permanent structure. The sleeping areas comprise of 1 double room, 1 cabin room with double bed and 1 single room with bunkbeds and a cot. There’s everything from a complete furnished kitchen to your own bathroom just outside the lodge; under cover and in a beach hut wooden structure. Based around the idea of African safari tents the holiday lodges are built using a combination of traditional canvas and more modern fabrics to create the African experience nearer to home.

A glamping experience that the kids will love

Of course, this being Pagel, there are all the usual baby, toddler and child facilities and toys you have come to expect from us. Everything you need is already there – glasses, cups, cutlery, pans, running water, cooker…the works! Choose from Moomba (Sanskrit for young lioness) Lodge Elephant or Moomba Lodge Hippo – both are identical in layout and interior, but one is themed to Elephants and the other to Hippos just to make the glamping experience more fun for the children, so be prepared for cuddly Elephants and Hippos everywhere!

Get back to nature under spectacular night skies

With the children sound asleep at night, you can enjoy a glass of wine outside your lodge where, when you look up, you will see a sky full of stars and experience the magic of the Milky Way. A childhood dream of an adventure with mummy and daddy; sleeping under the stars but safe and fenced in, with swimming and luxury facilities. The Moomba Safari Lodge has use of all the communal facilities at Pagel including the weekly family meal and chef services. Glamping in France has never been this glamorous, family friendly and charming.

Book early to avoid disappointment

Interest in our glamping lodges is often very intense many months prior to peak season and sometimes up to a year in advance. For the perfect family friendly glamping experience, make an enquiry as early as possible.

A Holiday We Will Never Forget

We have just got back from the most magical holiday here at Pagel!…A holiday we will never forget, no stone unturned and nothing too much to ask for! What a place….what a team!

A Hidden Gem

There being six of us, we were in the largest gite, The Winegrower’s House (3 bedrooms), and as soon as we walked up to our rooms to unpack, Siena (7) shrieked ‘I love it!’ – on each of the children’s beds was a bag of books and toys with their names on, and a costume for them to dress up in. In fact there were books and toys all over the place, to such an extent that they spent the entire week without even noticing that there was no TV!

All in all, Pagel is an absolute gem, unlike anywhere I’ve been before, and I can guarantee you’ll want to go back.

Paradise for Children

We had a beautiful holiday with our 3 year old and 5 month old. Pagel is set in stunning countryside and we loved driving around the local area and visiting villages, markets and the lake….Pagel itself completely lived up to our expectations. The children have such freedom, make friends and are totally entertained. Their philosophy of creativity, imagination and outdoor play is exactly what we wanted our son to experience on holiday. It was like he glimpsed the freedom and independence we had ourselves as children.

Perfect for Both Adults AND Kids

We loved our stay at Pagel. Everything is was so beautifully -thought through to make sure everyone had a great time. (My kids couldn’t wait for their installment of kids club each day!) The grounds and surroundings are beautiful.

Highly recommend.

“One of the most relaxing holidays we have ever had”

The highlights here in Pagel were the Pirate ship, pool and the various play equipment around the site.  The kids had great fun with their imaginary games running around in a pack! We met some lovely families and were able to enjoy a few evenings together drinking wine while the children played.  One of the most relaxing holidays we have ever had and we are sure to return!

“There were tears from our boys as they said goodbye to their friends”

We have had a wonderful 2 weeks here in Pagel.  The weather was fab the first week and to be honest we didn’t venture out as the kids had such fun in the pool and running about.  Adults had a great time too…..

There were tears from our boys as they said goodbye to their friends….

All together it was a great 2 weeks as adults we got to chillax and have a few glasses of vino, safe in the knowledge that the kids were happy.

“Who Knew a Holiday With 3 Kids Could be Relaxing?”

Who knew a holiday with 3 kids could be relaxing!! Kids loved running around making lots of friends.  Lovely families – organised a film night and teddy bear’s picnic….So sad to be leaving. Enjoyed every minute, the days just disappear.

Beautiful, Idyllic Paradise for Children

“Wow what a beautiful, idyllic paradise for children.  We had a wonderfully relaxing time – Lilian particularly loved the pirate ship and swimming pool…Fiona and Mark were extremely helpful and accommodating and made our holiday very special.

Really sad to leave but hoping to return soon.  Thank you…

An Amazing Week..

We had an amazing week ….with our 2 yo daughter. The setting was absolute bliss for us parents – peaceful, beautiful scenery, and plenty of lovely restaurants and local produce from the markets, not to mention the wine! Our daughter was in heaven as well. The toys are perfect for toddlers, plenty of new stories to read at bedtime, swings and a slide, a ‘little house’ in the garden, and the pool! Everything was set up perfectly for a completely stress-free holiday with young children. The on-site staff were so helpful, and the BBQ at Mas was a great afternoon out… We cannot wait to return, and are already making plans for 2 weeks next year!
