Tell us about your experience
Due to circumstances we were not able to spend the night there, but we did see and experience the campsite. It was very cozy, clean and everything necessary was available.

How was the contact with the host?
Very good, a very friendly, nice lady with an open mind. Because we couldn't spend the night, we wanted to make a campfire with the kids and that was no problem for Joske. She immediately started to give us another unforgettable star-studded evening.

Tips for new guests?
If you have the chance to stay with Joske, just do it!

Rainy at first but that didn't spoil the fun. We played pool and were able to stream a movie in the barn in the evening. When the sun came out it was wonderful to relax on the large field.

Nice open communication.

Tell us about your experience
A beautiful place where I could completely relax and where the children could enjoy themselves with all the natural space to play.
We were with our tent. Beautiful places with plenty of space. Unfortunately it rained a lot, but luckily we could use the barn, which is completely furnished as a cozy living room. There we were dry and warm and we came to play games and read through the rainy days. Josje is a nice, friendly host. When my back started to bother me, I was even allowed to borrow her guest mattress. We would like to come back again.

How was the contact with the host?
Perfect.

Tips for new guests?
There is little to do in the area. It is therefore really a campsite to enjoy the place itself or to take beautiful walks in the area. This is normally perfect for us, but as it rained a lot during our stay, we missed the distraction and dryness of an outing. If you are willing to drive a little further, the Museum of War and Peace and the town of Laon are beautiful places to visit.

We enjoyed our days at Jardin Josette very much! The first night we were with few other guests, but even when it got busier the next day, it remained wonderfully quiet and relaxed. Would definitely go back again!

Due to marshy ground, we stood with our camper van on the edge of the meadow. A wonderful place: the birds, the view. The shower and dry toilet were very clean. Highly recommended!

Scout Christophe About the scout program

Tell us about your experience
What an absolutely delightful campsite to stay! There is a general 'zen' attitude in just about every corner of this little gem at the foot of the French Ardennes. The site is large, so that everyone has more than enough space to come to themselves. Yet all campers have a kind of similar mindset, which means that contact is made very quickly.

How was the contact with the host?
Joske is a lady who can keep the perfect balance between the business and the personal. Extremely warm in terms of personality, but always concerned with the well-being of the guests/customers. She is a living example that the combination does not have to be a utopia. She is also multilingual, so contact with everyone should never be a problem.

Tips for new guests?
Be sure to visit étang de la motte. At a fifteen minute drive from the campsite you will arrive on a real piece of coast in the Ardennes. A lovely beach where you can alternate sunbathing with a refreshing dip in the water. It's free and there are several lifeguards on the lookout during the summer months. Don't hesitate to go for the buffet on Saturday and immerse yourself in a mix of local cuisine and cool beats.
