LOCATION
In Occitanie, in Seissan, a small commune in the Gers department just over 1 hour from Toulouse and about the same from Pau. Located just north of the Pyrenees National Park and the Ariège Pyrenees Regional Park, this is a small, unspoilt piece of France, where plains, valleys, peaks, lakes and forests can all be explored at the pace of nature, heritage and the treasures of Gascon gastronomy, with Auch just 20 minutes away.

OVERVIEW
An exotic glamping site in the heart of the Gers countryside, Whaka Lodge has been blurring the lines with style since 2021, offering its guests – families, tribes of friends, lovers of unusual experiences and city dwellers in search of greenery – some 50 atypical yet comfortable accommodations (bohemian cottages, cabins on stilts, romantic domes, teepees, Out of Africa-style tents…) sleeping from 2 to 7 people. Nestled in a 12-hectare green setting planted with hundred-year-old oaks, the estate is built around a triplet of lakes, fed by the melting Pyrenean snows, and a wide range of experiences to be enjoyed on site (swimming, kayaking, fishing, paddle, pool…) or in the immediate vicinity. Part family ecoresort, part unusual lodge-hotel, it’s the ideal base camp for visiting the region in slow-motion, or chilling out with friends and family under the South-Western sun. Ecological bonus? Whaka Lodge is committed to the environment on many levels. Disconnect/reconnect to the simple pleasures of life in the great outdoors.
