Introduce
We, Monique and Branko, have a house with 67 acres of land in the northern French hamlet of 'Le Tambourin' (235 m) in the 'Thiérache-Ardennaise' region. We have now been able to create our dream place there: 'Une Chance de la France!' At our mini-camping we receive dog lovers, cyclists, hikers, nature lovers and peace seekers. Small-scale, affordable and informal. A casual place where you can relax, have breakfast, read a book, drink a glass of wine, enjoy nature and eat a 'menu du jour'. Our guests are welcome with or without dog(s). The dogs are allowed to run loose in the fully fenced area. The minimum age of our guests is 16 years.

Very cozy campsite where dogs are allowed to roam freely, and they do! Our dog had the time of her life :). And we had a great time, nice place in the shade. Enjoyed the table d'hotes one evening: it was delicious and cozy. We have already made several friends aware of this beautifully situated campsite. Thank you!

How was the contact with the host?
Excellent: warm welcome and goodbye again. Very attentive.

Tips for new guests?
Bring your dog!!

Marloes

Tell us about your experience
We really enjoyed our week at your campsite.
Marie really enjoyed being able to run loose and play with the other dogs and get dirty in the stream.
On the last evening we enjoyed a delicious dinner.

It was a super pleasant holiday.

How was the contact with the host?
They were very pleasant people. If we needed anything they were always ready.

It's great that you do those meals. This way you get to know the people at the campsite and you still get a completely different atmosphere than at another campsite.

Parfonduval is a small village near Rumigny where you can walk very nicely with beautiful views. The food is definitely recommended!

Monique and Branko are super sweet people who welcome you with open arms to the mini campsite with their dogs Meda and Thor. When it's quiet you can choose where you want to stay, we were with the tent and were able to get a perfect spot. Our dog has been able to scratch around and play with the other dogs!
In the morning you can get a nice breakfast from the bakery. And in the evening possibly dinner (we did not do this ourselves, but we have heard a lot of good things about it)
All in all a very nice, calm environment. Pleasant evenings with good wine and a lovely atmosphere.
We will definitely come back here to relax again because that's what the area really does!

How was the contact with the host?
Fast responses and very friendly.

Tips for new guests?
In the evening indicate that you want breakfast, especially the croissants and chocolate sandwiches were very tasty and fresh! Saves yourself a trip to the bakery and doesn't cost much!

5 stars, what a beautiful place! Overall so many nice details! Very nice welcome from Monique and Branko and help with everything I needed (plus nice conversations :)! The facilities are top notch and nicely decorated! I really recommend joining us in the evening, having an incredible meal at Chef Branko :) My dog was also very happy and felt completely at ease, you don't find places like this very often on your trip :)

Very pleasant, fast and friendly :)

Tell us about your experience
A place in the French landscapes where friendliness and hospitality are paramount. Branko and Monique received us at the entrance and we were given the opportunity to choose our favorite spot. Later we were allowed to join the dinner and we chatted for a long time. The nice thing about this overnight stay is that dogs are more than welcome here and you see that everywhere.
