Response time: fast

Hello! I am Annemieke and I have been living in France with my husband Rick and our two sons since 2005. After a few years we carefully started renting out 2 cottages and a few camping pitches. When that caught on, we gradually expanded it to what it is today. It won't get any bigger. We prefer garden to camping and prefer to receive guests rather than customers. Our children are (almost) out of the house now, but we will certainly continue to enjoy our site and the people who feel at home with us for a number of years to come.

Tips

  • The social palace 'le Familistère' in Guise is definitely worth a visit.

  • From April to September there is almost always a flea market nearby on Sundays.

  • Vervins is a small, charming fortified town with various catering establishments.

Elise

Tell us about your experience
Very nice discovery! We were able to place our tent together with those of our friends on a large lawn surrounded by shrubs and trees, which gave us sufficient privacy. Very nice to go with children. We would love to come back again!

How was the contact with the host?
Very fast and accessible!

Tell us about your experience
We enjoyed our stay immensely. This campsite was “a little bit more” in everything: space, tranquility, atmosphere and phenomenal croissants. A first visit to a new place is always a gamble, but we now know that we will definitely come back to enjoy Atelier de la Charité again

How was the contact with the host?
Very accessible and cordial. Nothing to complain about.

Tips for new guests?
A very nice trip for children nearby: the waterfall of Blangy. Simple but filling afternoon.

Thank you Jonathan. Also for your always cheerful attitude, despite the rain. We look forward to seeing you again!

Tell us about your experience
We visited the campsite for 3 weeks in the preseason. In a tent with 3-year-old daughter.
We like to go to a place with lots of nature, space and a free environment for our daughter to play in. We are pleasantly surprised!
At the campsite there is just enough for the kids to play alone, but playing together is also really encouraged.
The dressing up box, sandpit with play boat and trampoline offered plenty of opportunities to connect with each other.
The pizza evenings were a social highlight for us with delicious pizzas, home-distilled port and home-made ice cream. And when a fire was lit on (semi) own initiative, snacks, drinks and some stories quickly spread.

There is plenty to see and experience in the area for walkers and cyclists. We are not personally fond of this, but we certainly did not get bored. It was a little more searching than usual, and possibly a little longer drive than one is used to in a tourist spot, but there is plenty of beauty in the area.
Facilities were really nice for a campsite of this size, you could enjoy a cold drink under cover. You can order fresh bread for the morning and the toilets and showers were neat and clean. There is also a freshly brewed espresso with a homemade scoop of ice cream on the terrace at the house at set times.
We have saved the address and there is a good chance that we will visit this campsite again. (but maybe in a house because they are very creative and cozy!!)

How was the contact with the host?
The host and wife (with sons) are available most of the day with a smile for questions and possibly. assistance in unforeseen situations. Very nice people with a good heart.

Tips for new guests?
There are fruit bushes and trees on the grounds from which you can pick the fruits (we made a round every day and ate delicious fruit).

Host Annemieke has responded

Thank you very much for this wonderful and comprehensive review. It was a great pleasure to have you as a guest, because our smile and the cosiness on the site you yourself played a major role in that. We couldn't have wished for a better start to the camping season. You are therefore always very welcome!

Lies

Tell us about your experience
Very restful campsite. Untouched nature is very present compared to the average campsite. An absolute must if you have children and are looking for peace. The infrastructure is clean, basic and simple. You will not find very expensive mobile homes with posh handles. The tranquility extends beyond the domain, in the villages around there is virtually nothing. You won't find terrace tourists there because there are no cafes.

How was the contact with the host?
Pleasant, friendly people
