About this campspace #s003572

Your host

Christof en Lize

Come and enjoy the vast forests here in the Antwerp Kempen. From your camping pitch, you have an ideal base for many wonderful hiking or cycling tours. If you prefer to enjoy the peace and quiet, you will find a nice spot close to or at your camping spot itself.
Ask the owners about the local assets, as they certainly are. For the sporty holidaymaker and / or the rather quieter, there are many beautiful, interesting nice places to discover.
On the camping spot itself you can find peace and sniff the wonderful forest scent. Would you like an egg and / or a jar of honey or jam with your breakfast? Your hosts are happy to offer it to you. Most of it comes from your own garden.
In the evening you can enjoy the sounds of the forest here: the song thrush with its evening song, a grunting woodcock flying 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 host and hostess.

Grijsberg was originally built as a holiday home for a baron's family. We like to share that fact with others, just like our love for the green environment. We, Christof, Lize and our two sons, would like to welcome you to Gijzenberg.

Very nice camping spot in the middle of nature, in the forest. Interesting that there was electricity and a compost toilet. Spacious place where we could choose between a large meadow and a red beech avenue. Great that you could use a fire pit with accompanying wood for the evening. Unfortunately, the rain was a bummer for us to test this out.

How was the contact with the host?
Friendly, helpful and always available.

Tips for new guests?
Definitely do: the Talander walk. Beautiful with different beautiful landscapes, we left on foot from the 'camping space' and this is certainly doable. Do not forget mosquito repellent .... the mosquitoes are abundant there in the woods.

As a city person greatly enjoyed the peace and nature in the middle of the forest. Many hiking opportunities through the wooded area. Ideal place if you want to isolate yourself from social media, reception is hardly there. To be repeated. Recommended.

How was the contact with the host?
Had a short but smooth chat with the host.

Tips for new guests?
Leave your mobile phone at home, but bring something against the mosquitoes.

We had a great stay at this campspace in the middle of the woods, surrounded by animal sounds. The fire bowl and the wood provided were ideal for an evening campfire.

Tips for new guests?
It is recommended to bring something against the mosquitoes.

We had a very nice time. Christof and Lize were never far away, but still gave us enough privacy. You walk straight into the woods and it is a beautiful place to wake up. Highly recommended!

Tips for new guests?
There were quite a few mosquitoes during the time we were there. So just to be sure, bring deet or citronella candles with you.

Was voor ons ook de eerste keer campspace en we zijn helemaal enthousiast. Wat een fantastische plek! Dit is kamperen op z'n best! Primitief, maar wat een rust, ruimte en uitzicht. Dat is dan weer pure luxe.

How was the contact with the host?
Lize en Christof waren super hosts. Altijd snelle reactie, vriendelijk en bereikbaar. We voelden ons zeer welkom en vereerd dat ze de luxe van dit uitzicht met ons wilden delen.

Tips for new guests?
Google maps wijst je inderdaad naar het verkeerde adres aan een zijstraat van de hoofdweg. Op de fiets of lopend is het dan echt heel ergens anders en dus even zoeken. Navigeren op nummer 80 levert betere resultaten op.

Beautiful place in the forest. Because the field was still wet from the showers, we were allowed to stand on the red beech lane. The simple facilities are fine for a few nights and the hostess and host are very friendly. The fresh eggs from the chickens tasted great. The area is beautiful for cycling, highly recommended!

Super nice and spacious area on the property of Grijsenberg. Feeling of being back in nature again. Toilet block is simple but tidy with a compost toilet. It sits on a large forest where you can walk nicely. A visit to the tea house and picking garden completes the visit.

How was the contact with the host?
Fast and good contact and very helpful.

Tips for new guests?
When it is very wet, be careful with a heavy bus/camper on the lawn, you can get stuck. Fortunately, there is a dear neighbor who can lend a hand ;)

Beautiful place with lots of space where you will not soon stand herring to herring. Hikers, runners but also mountain bikers can indulge themselves in the adjacent nature and recreation area. The Antwerp Kempen are more than worth a visit! I will definitely come back with family or friends.

How was the contact with the host?
If everyone was like Lize, the world would look a lot better. I wish Christof and Lize every success!

What a fantastic place this is. Wonderfully relaxed on the estate. Waking up early in the morning to the rooster's cock and the sun's rays on our tent. The fire bowl and the wood completed the experience, but also the warm welcome from Lize, Christof and the children. You can also cuddle with the donkeys and the chickens and take a lovely walk in the adjacent nature reserve.

We had a fantastic time at Gray Mountain. We enjoyed the peace, the silence and the hospitality of the owners. The fire pit, the wood provided and the call of the tawny owl kept us nice and warm during the still somewhat chilly spring evenings.

We would like to thank you very much, our first experience with our retro caravan was a great success. Our twins, Nand and Liv, aged 4.5, enjoyed it immensely. And we ourselves. What a beautiful restful place. Of course we first want to discover more places, but we will definitely come back.

We were received very warmly in a nice quiet place. The fire bowl and wood provided pleasant warmth in the evenings. The morning walk showed us several deer.
Pleasant environment and getting to know place.

A lovely place to relax in Arendonk. Beautifully located in the woods so that you can immediately start hiking from your camping spot. Spotting deer yourself is possible! The owners are very friendly people and are happy to assist you with advice and assistance. We were with a caravan and could even take electricity. We got a fire pit and wood and that really completed the camping experience.

There was 1 other family but that didn't bother us at all. The site is large enough for a few families so that you still have enough peace and quiet.

Highly recommended that definitely gets 5 stars! We will come back here again.

We had a great time with Christof and Lize. Very friendly hosts, we received a welcome pack and local tips for walking/cycling. The campspace is situated very quietly. It is best to bring a bug spray in the summer, because there are quite a few mosquitoes. Definitely recommended!
