DOMAINE EN BIRBÈS domaine en birbes luxury safari tents, gites chambre d'hotes in Languedoc Roussillon France




As a family you will have a wonderful stay at our Domaine. Whether you choose a safari tent, one of the gites or "Les Chambres", the small scale, comfort and familiarity make Birbès an ideal holiday destination for families.




Discover and enjoy this beautiful, authentic and quiet part of southern France and enjoy a cozy and comfortable stay at Birbès. Experience the peace and tranquility and stay in one of our comfortable gites or a room with breakfast (bed and breakfast).




Birbès is, with the exception of the high season, also available to hire for a special occasion. Consider for example painting lessons, cooking days, family celebrations, company incentives or a wedding.




A good holiday also includes enjoying all the culinary delights of a country or region. Well you are certainly well placed for that in our region! If you don’t feel like cooking for yourself, discover one of the many restaurants in the area or join us at our table d'hôtes. You’ll find a delicious meal, a glass of wine and a surprisingly relaxed or unique conversation at one of our long tables!




Relax your mind with a bit of physical exercise! You can start the day with a swim in our lovely (heated) pool (12x6m). And there’s still so much more to discover in the beautiful surroundings! The magnificent and rugged Pyrenees or the beach are both only an hour's drive away!




You can enjoy so much beauty in this particular region, Languedoc Roussillon. Fascinating cities, traditional villages, sea, mountains and so much more. And all within an hour’s drive from our domaine! Lovers of culture will be intrigued, for example, by the history of the Cathars, in which this region has played a central role. We have made a selection of a number of events and attractions for you.



The medieval village of Laurac is situated in the rolling countryside of the South of France region Languedoc-Roussillon, surrounded by sunflower and cornfields.  At the foot of this small hamlet of only 200 inhabitants, we discovered the beautiful Domaine and Birbès.


Since October 2010 we have realized our dream to live and work in this wonderful place. A place to relax and enjoy all the good things that ‘ La douce France’ has to offer : sun, sea, mountains, culture, activities and of course great food and drink. It is with great pleasure that we welcome our guests for a pleasant stay in one of our choices of accommodation. Whether you come alone, as a couple, with the family or as a group, with or without children, we will do our upmost to give you an unforgettable holiday. Hope to see you soon ‘en Birbès’!

Tentes de luxe | Safari Tents

You will experience a real outdoor feeling in one of the six luxury safari tents. Convenience and comfort are paramount: Camping is fun, but especially if you sleep in a comfortable bed, have a kitchen at your disposal and, above all, a private bathroom (less than a minute walk from the tent).

Les Gîtes

The charming cottage L'Etable is located (ground floor) at the heart of the main building and can accommodate up to four people. The cottage has two bedrooms, a spacious bathroom and a living room with open kitchen and French doors to the private terrace.

Le Grenier is on the first and second floor and can accommodate a family up to 6 people. A living room with open kitchen is on the first floor and stairs lead to the second floor with two bedrooms and a bathroom. In front of the gite is a lovely, private terrace, complete with lounge sofa. From this terrace there is a good view of the kids area in the hangar.

L'Atelier (plus tree house!)

L 'Atelier (plus tree house!) is the jewel in the crown at Birbès. The small detached cottage, completely renovated during winter 2015-2016, is centrally located at the Domaine. L'Atelier consists of a spacious double room with a half open bathroom and separate toilet. A beautiful, partly open, partly covered terrace completes L’ Atelier. The covered part of the terrace can be closed with sliding doors and even heated with a cozy wood burner.


It is possible to place a baby bed in L 'Atelier. One or two children can even sleep with mum and dad on a sofa bed.


Since 2015, we have added to L'Atelier with a fantastic and cool tree house. With the tree house, L'Atelier is a super choice for family accommodation for up to 6 people.

Sleeping in a tree house

The tree house has a full sized bedroom for up to 3 children. There is electricity and the necessary safety is of course ensured. The tree house is suitable for children over 7 years. For younger children, it is possible to place a baby bed in L 'Atelier. One or two children can even sleep with mum and dad on a sofa bed.

Les Chambres

As a family, you can also choose to stay in our two guest rooms; 'Les Voisins' and' Les Missionnaires ', collectively known as ‘Les Chambres’.

A big advantage is that both rooms, located right next to each other on the first floor, have a private bathroom. This is especially practical for families with older children! For our guests in Les Chambres there is a large private terrace next to our hangar with the best views of the Domaine. With views of the hills and fields which are alternately grown with corn, maize, and sunflowers, you can admire the most beautiful sunsets from your terrace every day. Les Chambres are booked in high season in combination with the use of the large outdoor kitchen. In the hangar (our large, partly open, roofed barn) is a cool, large and fully equipped outdoor kitchen. From this kitchen, we also prepare our twice weekly table d'hôtes.
