Le Petit Peuple du Bocage is an association that creates a common place in rural areas to experiment and share its knowledge and know-how through activities related to the preservation of biodiversity.
It is therefore in this outdoor third place, the World of the Little People, that you can come and stay and of course meet us!

Tips

  • The edge of the Allier is perfect for your picnics or your aperitifs with family or friends

  • The GR300 passes right next to the campsite

  • The Sancoins market on Wednesday mornings (with its animal market), the Bourbon l'Archambault farmers' market on Saturdays, etc.

  • Come and have a look at La Brasserie du Loup, at Veurdre, craft beers made with love (and hops, of course!)

  • Le Chat Vert in Livry, the Burgers food-truck on Wednesday evenings at Le Veurdre, etc.
