WHAKA LODGE, A GREEN CHIC 4-STAR CAMPING EXPERIENCE IN GERS (SOUTH WEST OF FRANCE)
A NATURE HOLIDAY: A LUXURY CAMPSITE ON THE WATER’S EDGE IN GERS
There are, throughout the world, exceptional locations, certainly more exotic than the loveliest campsite in the Gers. Maybe having the life of a globetrotter would be insufficient to explore them…
…However, times are changing, and the responsible tourist thinks twice, before booking a flight to a safari lodge in Tanzania!
Here, on our campsite by the Lac de Seissan lake, we have dreamt up an “elsewhere”, without having to go far.
It is 12 hectares of pure countryside, happiness in its raw form, between lakes and a forest in Occitanie! This will perhaps be the setting of your loveliest glamping experience in the Gers, if you love the simple delight of a countryside holiday, by the lake, with the sunshine, and the conviviality of south-west France.
Wake up at dawn, watch the sunrise and feel the first rays of sunshine in an enchanting location. Make the most of your stay with our relaxation, nautical and land-based activities until the sun goes down. Let the stars be your guide as you take a moonlit walk around the site. Then, finish off your day with style by spending a unique night in the South-West of France, for an idyllic break away from it all in the countryside.
This nature holiday in such a poetic, romantic setting will kindle and rekindle passionate feelings, to help you create some unforgettable memories.
Whaka Lodge, this is a particularly original concept of an hotel in the middle of nowhere, which reinvents camping with style, with an eco-chic offering, and which takes inspiration from an exotic world, to transport you elsewhere, in complete harmony with its natural wooded surroundings.
In an ethnic and décor spirit, Whaka Lodge imagines a little everywhere on the campsite, with here inspiring places, and there unusual accommodation, simply awaiting both you and your good humour!

The Gers, a well-kept secret
Nobody actually knows it, but the Gers is an island, far from the bustle of the large metropolises, protected by the joyful lightness of its inhabitants. If there was one slogan shared by the Gers inhabitants, it would be “no stress, make the most of life”.
Nathalie and Patrick, the owners of Whaka Lodge, love travelling and stopping on various islands. Here, they find a particular atmosphere: people truly in harmony with their territory and its superb countryside, not artificial, centred on the simple things in life.
Sure, there are no motorways, but you can drive for kilometres without passing another car, stop at superb viewpoints, stop in highly atypical restaurants, otherwise you get “looks” from people. You eat there, you listen to music there, you drink a good wine there, in the atmosphere of a tavern, like in films, with this particular atmosphere, when the inhabitants of magnificent small villages meet up over a drink and share with you their love of the region.
No need to go far to be elsewhere. The Gers an island? A well-kept secret only to be shared with friends.
