The Details...

When the circus lights go off and the fanfare dies out, what fate belies the beloved roulotte? While some end their adventures faded and forgotten, some are reborn like Alfonso’s Wagon. With a sprinkling of fairy dust and a touch of magic, it’s swapped the circus whirlwind for a holiday romance. So retreat to the country, to the South of France no less, and glamp in style on this authentic horse ranch.

Named after the daredevil leopard tamer that once called it his home, the wagon is now a fitting homage to the circus days of old. Its once colourful exterior is now a sophisticated cream framed by the lush greens and blushing flowers of the farmhouse fields. Handmade bunting flickers in the breeze beside the quaint porch steps with their carefree appeal.

Its interiors are set for your lasting, gypsy romance and blend a sweet, nostalgic finish with eccentric, little touches. Its cosy sitting room will conjure images of old with its antique French furniture and shades of gold. Faded photos and handpicked trinkets line its handcrafted shelves, along with quirky books, classic postcards and vintage gems. A cute kitchenette is even equipped with a modern hob/oven and has a carved wooden dresser with a pantry cupboard.

Beyond this, you’ll find a gorgeous bedroom perfect for two, complete with a sumptuous double bed swathed in dreamy pink hues. Flower prints and scatter cushions add to its feminine style and are joined by twinkling fairy lights and delicate designs. An ornate pink bathroom can also be found hidden inside a closet, while a hot water shower can be found in an outdoor cabin.

Back out in the garden you’ll find all sorts of glamping treats, including an outdoor BBQ kitchen and stunning, woodland pool. Drink cocktails on the terrace and dine al fresco amongst the trees, cooling off in the water and gazing at the spellbinding country scenes.

Alfonso’s Wagon rests on the outskirts of Sommières in the flourshing paddocks of a local horse farm and riding school. You can spend warm summer days galloping amongst the acres or learning the art of dressage from the professional trainers. Out in the open you can discover rolling vineyards beside historic chateaux’s and fairy tale meadows. Visit the stylish city of Montpellier or the breath-taking Mediterranean coast, exploring medieval boulevards and white sandy coves. Fall in love with the simple beauty of the wild, sun-drenched landscapes, tasting rich wines and delicious foods from the comfort of your wagon.
