    1 pitch

Come and enjoy the vast regional forests in the Antwerp Kempen. From your camping pitch you have an ideal base for many wonderful hiking or cycling trips. The camping spot is located along the forest where you can leave a few meters away for a walk along walking routes that have been selected for walk of the year 2021, being the bridge walk of 10 km and the grave raven path of 3 km. If you prefer to enjoy the peace and quiet, you will probably find a nice spot close to or at your camping spot itself. Your camping pitch is located in the ecological garden of a Talander vzw country house. Talander vzw is an initiative for people with a disability. In this country house, a companion lives with two people in co-housing, they are happy to be your hosts.

Ask them about the local assets, because they are certainly there. For the sporty holidaymaker and / or the rather quieter, there are many beautiful, interesting nice places to discover.
At the camping spot you can find peace and sniff the wonderful forest scent.
Would you like to enjoy breakfast in the morning? Let your hosts know, for an affordable amount they will be happy to prepare something for you, perhaps with ingredients from their own garden.

In the evening you can enjoy the sounds of the forest here: the song thrush, a grunting woodcock that flies over and when the campfire is lit you can also hear the tawny owl by the crackling fire.
If you have any questions about the possibilities at the camping site, you can always contact the hosts.

Perfect for...

Nature lovers, hikers, on your own, with family or with friends. People who enjoy life.

Tell us about your experience
Pleasant place to stand, in a large garden, including a vegetable garden and a chicken/duck run; now and then the runner ducks came by to take a discreet look at us :-)Sven had a long power cable so we could easily refuel. Just like us, by the way!

How was the contact with the host?
Because it was the weekend, the host was away a lot and we were given the keys to the house where we could go to the toilet and shower and wash the dishes. Nice to be so trusted!

Tips for new guests?
Unfortunately we could only stay here for 1 night, because we only toured for 3 days with our VW converted to an electric bus from 1979, but it is a beautiful area and it is nice to be here longer.

Tell us about your experience
Enjoyed the hospitality and the peace in this garden. Funny ducks and dog that came to visit my tent, there is so much to see. I was allowed to place my tent where I wanted, there is enough sun and shade and from the garden into the forest. Also great to hang out in the hammock from Sven. Information brochures available and Sven himself also has a lot of information about his environment.

How was the contact with the host?
Very easily approachable.

Tell us about your experience
I went to Turnhout to attend the Turnhout summer course.
These were long days so I wasn't on the campsite very much.
Still, this was the ideal place to relax and find myself for the next busy day.
It is a pleasant quiet area with all the necessary sanitary facilities.

How was the contact with the host?
Sven is a lovely host.
Communicates clearly.
Makes time for a chat and is happy to give some tips if desired.

Tips for new guests?
Enjoy the tranquility.
Adjacent is a nice forest for walking, mountain biking...

We have been in Sven's beautiful garden. There was plenty of shade and Sven is an excellent host and told us all about the garden and what we could do in the area.

Quiet place, great to combine relaxation and walking.

How was the contact with the host?
Very friendly and calm.

Tips for new guests?
Dogs are allowed loose, but keep in mind that there is a pond. So if, like us, you have dogs obsessed with water, keeping them on a leash on a regular basis is imperative. Matter of not having a wet dog in the camper or tent at night πŸ€ͺ…unless you don't care about that of course πŸ˜‰

Tell us about your experience
My husband and I had a super nice two days. Nice chats with Sven and his girlfriend, enjoyed a nice breakfast, made a nice walk, slept wonderfully between the forest sounds and also played nice with Risla (Sven's dog). In short, highly recommended!

How was the contact with the host?
Very good. Booking was confirmed quickly. We were given a tour on the spot. And a lot of explanation about activities and walks in the area.

Tips for new guests?
Book a breakfast. Be inspired by the beautiful Talander story. Take time to discover the beautiful garden. Discover the beautiful surroundings (we did part of the bridge walk and continued to Talander's tea house). There is a strawberry vending machine and a Delhaize within walking distance.

It was a wonderful stay. Waking up to the song of hundreds of birds before going to sleep the sound of the forest owl. Nice breakfast prepared for you every day really great.

Sven is a friendly hardworking man with passion for what he does. Very cosy...

Tips for new guests?
Go to Talander tea house and take a nice walk through the vast forests.

Tell us about your experience
Our expectation was high for this special place, but it was still exceeded. We were received very hospitably by his mother. Everything felt free and happy and meeting Sven and his girlfriend was inspiring! We prefer to keep this place a secret to ourselves so that the peace is preserved. This pitch is a journey of discovery and so much more than a nice place to spend the night. While we love to try something new, we'll definitely be going back to this one for longer! The place is too beautiful to leave, but being in the woods is also really wonderful! Nothing but praise from us!

How was the contact with the host?
Very pleasant, quick responses, well received and we felt very welcome. Also the breakfast was delicious! and the conversations inspiring.

Tips for new guests?
Book breakfast with it, so delicious to be pampered like this ;-)

We had a very nice stay at this place. Were welcomed with fresh eggs, enjoyed the beautiful wooded area and the fire pit. Very comfortable.

How was the contact with the host?
Unfortunately we did not speak to Sven himself, were received by his parents. But even though he was abroad, we had good contact.

Tips for new guests?

Blissful quiet camping site in the beautiful natural garden of country house Talander, where you can enjoy the peace and quiet, the forest sounds, the flowers and bees, vegetables, chickens, Jack the buck and Risla the dog. A place we would love to come back to!
Very nice area for cycling and walking!

How was the contact with the host?
Sven is a very helpful, passionate Host who likes to tell you about the ins and outs of Talander, the eco garden, the bees, fauna and flora. The residents Toon and Erwin are also very nice guests. We also paid a visit to the tea house where they were both working! Magnificent

We really enjoyed the greenery, the peace and quiet, the unexpectedly beautiful surroundings of Ravels and the 2 lovely hosts (Sven & Erwin) with their warm welcome! We have really relaxed these days.

How was the contact with the host?
Wonderful! Sven and Erwin were always ready to answer questions and were happy to give tips about the area. When I had an unexpected allergic reaction from mosquito bites, he called my friend (the doctor) about what to do. This was greatly appreciated.

Tips for new guests?
If honey is available, definitely buy it! This one is grown in the most ecological way and delicious.

Scout Diede About the scout program

Tell us about your experience
This campspace place is worth it for the garden alone! Wow! The vegetable garden and bees and the love with which the garden is maintained is beautiful! Sven is a very nice host. He makes a campfire for you and can tell you a lot about his garden and the environment. The sanitary facilities are all to yourself and spotlessly clean. You can use his fridge and freezer in
the barn. Always handy when you're camping back to basic. Recommended!
