Red, yellow, pink and mauve, Dihan’s rental caravan is cheerful, colourful and well isolated to make it a refuge for a romantic weekend. It has settled in a corner of the meadow, even if Casanova, the Breton draught horse, is never far away… Its poetic universe will take you on a journey through the countryside, those of the immobile journey. Indeed, at Dihan we are in love with travelling and each of our accommodations has its own history and culture. Our gypsy caravan is the result of a love story between a Romanian woman, a Breton man and the gypsy culture.
Well insulated, with its alcove bed and its details telling you a little about the culture of the travellers, it will be your nest for a romantic stay in an unusual ecolodge park in southern Brittany.
A secret bed can accommodate a child if you wish to come with a princess or a little prince.
Spending a holiday in a caravan in Morbihan is also an opportunity to discover our magnificent region, between Carnac, Quiberon and the Gulf of Morbihan. Moreover, it is to take advantage of the activities proposed in Dihan: walking and hiking maps, bicycles, fatbikes (bicycles with large electrically assisted wheels allowing you to discover the seaside without effort), paddle… Then, to taste the pleasures of its wellness area (sauna, hammam, massages in private spa).
The caravans, which look like Tiny houses, were and still are sometimes both the transport and the house of the roms (i.e. “accomplished and married men within the community”), a term designating a group of populations, having in common an Indian origin, comprising numerous families depending on the geographical location (gypsies, gypsies…)

The first caravans only appeared in the 19th century… The gypsy caravan is linked to many superstitions: one did not give birth in the gypsy caravan, under penalty of making it impure.
Just like the yurt, it is also linked to the life of the nomads. The caravan was used by circuses, fairground people and also certain craftsmen (basket makers, iron workers, etc.)
Ours is a copy of a gypsy verdine (like a small house, with a door, shutters, pulled by horses). The original caravans are nowadays almost impossible to find, or in such a dilapidated state that it is difficult to move them.
Made of Carpathian wood, zinc roof, carved, engraved, with bright colours and wrought ironwork, it would be the caravan of gypsies with a certain standard of living. It is also the result of the love of a Breton woman for a Romanian woman who makes these little houses on wheels in a workshop that promotes the know-how of the Roma and Romanians.
Dihan’s caravan is ideal for couples, but can also accommodate an additional young guest. Very easy to access, it is located at the top of the meadow and overlooks it. Also, it has a double bed and a pull-out bed for a child.
Bed linen, candles and a dynamo lamp are provided. It is equipped with a table and chairs inside and outside.
A breakfast basket will be delivered to you at around 9am, filled with bread, croissants, jam, organic fruit juice, hot drinks… All you have to do is pull it up to you by a pulley system.
You will find a dry toilet at your disposal. The classic sanitary facilities, as well as the showers, are located in the farmhouse 25m away.
There is no running water or electricity in the caravan.
Heating is provided in February/March/October/November (additional option in April/May). Towels are not provided.
