Pella Roca, the Romantic Glamping Retreat

Pella Roca Cabins are a romantic Glamper’s dream. The cabins themselves are private and comfortable, with a style that epitomizes cabin chic fabulousness. Your stay can be customized to fit your desires, and planning your menu and romantic additions will make preparing for your stay part of the fun. The surrounding grounds and neighborhood offer a vast variety of activities, if you’re able to leave your porch. But once you set foot into your cabin, you will enter a new world of peace and luxury that is all your own.

Set in the French Countryside, on a truffle farm no less, La Pella Roca feels separate from your normal world of schedules and stresses. Should you not want to explore the surrounding towns, trek, kayak or hang glide, you’ll have absolutely no reason to leave your cabin. The proprietress Isabella will fill your fridge with delicious sustenance to delight every palate and make you never want to leave. A local France charcuterie board (with additions from Isabella’s native Spain of course) on your patio with a crisp sparkling Rosé is all your summer is missing. Then when morning comes, you’re in for a treat.

If you, like us, have never had a breakfast basket, you don’t know what your life is missing. Imagine a picnic basket delivered to your door with croissants, fruits, granola, yogurt, charcuterie, fresh juice, ok I can’t go on I’m hungry again. It is the intersection of charm, deliciousness and convenience and officially our new favorite way to wake up. The most fantastic part is that all of this delectable food magically appears at your fingertips, and you don’t have to speak to a soul to get it!


Continue your day sipping espresso on your porch, or enjoying our favorite part of the cabin (yes, we haven’t even gotten to our favorite yet!).

Each cabin comes equipped with it’s own private sauna and Norwegian hot tub, both of which are as amazing as they sound. One of you can build up the fire, while the other pours champagne, and as the stars come out feel free to wonder if this place actually exists on this Earth. Go to sleep, wake up, and repeat.

Or, if you wake up with a burst of energy, you can walk over to the pool to take a refreshing swim. Continue your lounging poolside or wander back to the cabin for a sauna. If you aren’t the lounging type of person (or are in a relationship with one who gets a bit stir crazy), never fear. Farther afield are medieval villages to explore and even caves containing Rock Art from 15,000 years ago. And of course, world-class restaurants for which France is known. In the winter, enjoy truffle season with bursting markets and cuisine. Summer offers a plethora of sporting activities from trekking to mountain biking to hang gliding. Reward yourself at the end of your day with a world-class French restaurant in the village. You can wear yourself out while knowing your private spa retreat awaits your return.


The romance and relaxation surrounds and permeates every molecule of the Pella Roca Cabins and grounds. Allow the bubble to encapsulate the two of you, and enjoy precious moments of privacy and let the peaceful setting slow your breath and clear your mind. Enjoy the convenience, without any of the stress. And after your break from the world, leave more equipped to take on the world.
