Make friends and learn new skills on your holiday
Wolphus Farm provides activity weekends like no other! Set in 13 hectares of farm and woodland in rural France, you can choose to camp or stay in lodgings in the converted farmhouse onsite.
Weekend stays are interwoven with a series of workshops led by the guests themselves. It’s an activity holiday with a difference. Come with an open mind and an open heart, and you’ll get so much more out of a stay at Wolphus!
On days when there are no activity programmes planned, you are welcome to book comfortable gîtes as holiday lets and enjoy the tranquillity of the farm at your leisure.
A holiday for couples, families and groups who seek adventure
Come on your own, with a travel buddy, groups of friends or family.
Wolphus is the perfect place for those who love to experience new cultures, get to know others and thrive off a sense of adventure.
Wolphus offers unique weekend getaways and holiday packages with a difference. Each weekend is themed around a specific topic, such as personal development, creative art, renovation and horticulture. You can check the programme on their website and choose the one that intrigues you the most.
Come to share and learn on your holiday
The concept is built around the idea of eco-transmission
Using our skills to enhance the lives of others. Guests are invited to propose an activity of between 45 minutes to an hour and 45 minutes that fits with the broader theme of the weekend.
You may learn how to sustainably repair a dry-stone wall, how to install an electrical socket or even the basics of plumbing, all in one weekend. Come a few weeks later, and there could be a singing lesson, pottery class or even a circus workshop on offer.
There’s no obligation to lead a session, but if you have the relevant skills, you might be surprised by how much you enjoy teaching others.
Make new friends on your holiday
This is an adventure holiday like no other. It’s a chance not only to learn new skills but to explore a new culture, meet open-minded individuals and appreciate each other’s passions and interests.
Everyone who stays at Wolphus comes with a mindset to share, encourage and learn. You may arrive as strangers, but you’ll be sure to leave as firm friends.
Enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the countryside
With Wolphus Farm being set in a peaceful 13 hectares, it’s a wildlife holiday and nature holiday too!
Start your day with a wander around the lake to hear the chorus of moorhens before strolling past the fruit trees and through the thriving vegetable garden. Younger guests love to meet the animals at the farm and stroll past the paddock.
In fact, guests are welcome to bring their own horses. You can enjoy an afternoon cantering around the paddock, or you can make the short trip to the beach, where the horses can gallop on the uninterrupted golden sand.
In the denser woodland, there is plenty of space for orienteering, and, indeed, the farm often organises kids’ activities with scavenger hunts and water fights, which younger guests particularly enjoy.
You can round off a busy day by huddling around a campfire or playing a competitive game of boules in the shadows of the farm itself.
Camp or enjoy comfortable lodgings onsite
There’s space for up to 20 to sleep in comfortable lodgings onsite. You can choose a double room in shared lodgings or take over a whole gîte if you are travelling as a small group.
Alternatively, there is plenty of space to pitch your tent and experience the peace and tranquillity in the heart of nature.
As is the ethos of the farm, guests are encouraged to prepare and eat food together. Come with a willingness to share, and you will leave having received so much more!
