Very nice stay. We greatly enjoyed the tranquility. Our 2 daughters had a great time on the farm. Every day they discovered something new.

We received a very warm welcome and it remained that way throughout the stay. We felt very welcome at the farm and also felt right at home.
Thank you for your hospitality.

What a beautiful place to experience a campervan adventure for the first time with our sons (7 and 9y). A beautiful location between the meadows. The icing on the cake is the daily milking of the cows and goats, something our children liked to participate in.

How was the contact with the host?
Very welcoming and helpful!
Thank you Marcel and family, we will be back :-)

Beautiful place! Fantastic view.
The farmer is very approachable and welcoming.
Dry toilet available at the camping site. For water, a shower, regular toilet you have to walk a long way back to the farm (on the field road).

How was the contact with the host?
Smooth contact.

Tips for new guests?
There is no electricity on the beautiful camping site. Well on the farm itself.

Like the first time: a pleasant and pleasant camping spot in a relaxing setting. We were there with 2 children (10 and 7), that works fine.
The sympathetic owners continue to make improvements, including to the sanitary facilities. Highly recommended for anyone who likes to camp without too much comfort, but with a shower and toilet nearby.

How was the contact with the host?
100% top, super friendly and helpful owners.

Very unique place ! Really in nature pure and quiet without luxury but with a hot shower and various fire places. You can also choose to stand in the yard and in that case you also have electricity.

How was the contact with the host?
Very good you feel very welcome and great advantage, besides French, Flemish is also spoken by the farmer

We spent a very nice evening and eight at the farm. Friendly reception. Immediately go and watch the milking of the cows, the calves and the goats. Because of the bad weather we were allowed to park in the shed. Fantastic. There was a campfire and it was a beautiful evening. The owners are extremely friendly and obliging. Highly recommended!

Tell us about your experience
We and especially our children had a great time. The weather was pretty bad so we were allowed to camp in the barn. Which ensured that we could sit outside by the fire in the evening. In better weather you have a beautiful view and beautiful sunrise. We didn't have that this time. We will definitely come back for this when the weather is better

Thanks again to T(h)eo for the trip with Maya(?).

How was the contact with the host?
Very good 👍🏼 Nice spontaneous people, both we and the children received a lot of explanation.

Tips for new guests?
Be sure to bring rain boots!
Leave your camper's door ajar when you're not in it... we had an unexpected visit from the youngest dog.

Tell us about your experience
We have been very well received by Marcel and Esmeralda. We were lucky enough to be the only campers that allowed us to fully enjoy our spot, overlooking the cows and a beautiful sunrise every morning. In addition, there was also a toilet with a view of the meadows, special but cool! We had problems getting to our camping spot but we were allowed to use the quad, a nice extra! There are some dogs present but luckily we are very big animal lovers. There was also a sanitary block with 2 toilets and a shower. There is also a gas stove available and a refrigerator + freezer that guests can use. We were also allowed to help with the milking of the goats and to see how that was done with the cows, very nice! Everything there is done with a lot of love. They are also very hospitable. We felt very welcome and we recommend it to everyone. And when you leave you can always buy fresh goat cheese in different flavors, as well as goat milk ice cream and pear-apple syrup.

How was the contact with the host?
Very good, welcoming! Marcel also speaks very good Dutch, as we ourselves cannot speak French well.

Tips for new guests?
Bringing boots, we hadn't thought of that ourselves, so our shoes + stockings got completely wet every time we wanted to go to the sanitary area or into the city. From our camping spot to the sanitary area it was about 200m walk through grass. So boots! A power bank is also useful if you want to continue to use your mobile phone.

Beautiful place and plenty of space per tent where you can make as much campfire as you want. (Subject to a small fee) right in front of your tent. We had the malchance that it was gray weather throughout our stay, but with sun this is idyllic in the morning at your campfire. Super for our children who were constantly allowed to look at the different cows, calves, goats, pigs and the 4 sweet dogs that were there, not to mention the beautiful cat. Had the weather not been so bad this holiday would have been perfect. That was our only negative experience: the weather

How was the contact with the host?
Brilliant, friendly, very helpful to find alternatives for bad weather. Always up for a chat. We immediately felt at home. Thanks everyone.

Tips for new guests?
If you're an internet junkie then you're done. Reach nowhere on the farm except in the home of the residents. Back to basics in terms of the internet.

We had some perfect camping days in this secluded and peaceful place. The welcome was warm and all contact was super sympa. For my daughter, helping with the animals was an absolute added value. The plumbing needed a little more attention - but that was probably due to circumstances - get well soon, patron.

Super nice stay and very hospitable and lovely people.
We had already cleaned up our tent the night before and went home because of an approaching storm, after which we were offered a place to sleep inside, very nice.
The artisanal products are also top notch, an address to remember.

Blissful place. Basic facilities and comfort are amply compensated by the unique and fantastic view and the enormously spacious camping pitches.

How was the contact with the host?
Very cordial and helpful. The children were allowed to watch the milking of the cows and help milk the goats. The go-carts were also a hit.

Tips for new guests?
There is a shower, toilet and fire pit per camping site, but there is no washing-up area. You can get water in the toilet and shower room, but a basin is certainly handy.

Tell us about your experience
Highly recommended for those who want to get away from the world for a while. This camping spot is ideal if you are looking for real peace and quiet, far away from everything and everyone. The owners are very cordial and helpful, but otherwise just leave you alone. The ice creams, yoghurts and cheeses sold locally, made from goat's milk, give Les Bois Blanc an extra cachet. But the strongest thing is the absolute tranquility.

How was the contact with the host?
Amazingly good. The proprietors are very friendly and helpful. They do everything to make you comfortable.

Tips for new guests?
Bring a tub for your dishes!

What a nice place! Plenty of space, making a nice campfire, cozy animals in the neighborhood! We were allowed to watch and help on the farm, this was great fun! We were warmly welcomed. The sanitary facilities are a short walk away but are always neat and clean. We had a super fun time!

Super nice camping spot! Very quiet and beautifully situated between the cows, you can make a nice campfire at the tent. We also got a tour of the farm and got to feed the animals, which was a nice perk! The children have been able to indulge themselves in this nice place.

How was the contact with the host?
Very friendly and welcoming.

Tips for new guests?
Definitely taste something from the fridge of the freshly made products on the farm, very tasty!

We were able to pitch our tent on the edge of a bush, which also allowed us to find a sufficiently shady spot. The camping site was large enough and equipped with several fire pits so that you could enjoy sufficient privacy even when several guests were present. We enjoyed the locally made artisanal organic products.

How was the contact with the host?
Esmeralda and Marcel are extremely friendly and hospitable and show/tell about their organic farm with enthusiasm.

Tell us about your experience
A camping space as we like it...on the edge of the meadow and the forest at a good walking distance from the farm and the sanitary facilities. There are some spots, but you are far from each other if you want to. We were never alone except for one night, but you have plenty of space. Toilet cubicle at the edge of the forest, slightly more extensive sanitary facilities in the front area of the farm. Still in full development, but family has only started operating through campspace for two months. They still have many plans, but given the many hours it takes to farm, some patience may be required. Products based on goat's milk of our own making for sale. We had 4 super fun "camping on the farm" days .. well served by the weather. The farm is at the very end of the road leading out of Roséé. The village has no shop or café, as is increasingly common in such small Walloon villages. For that you have to rely on Florennes or a little further on, with the occasional baker/butcher in a neighboring village that is still there as an exception. Dinant, various forests in small valleys, Maredsous, Annevoie, Les Lacs de L'Eau Heure ... everything can be reached fairly quickly by car, with the Viroinval as a hidden gem to discover for us, Namur is also only 45 minutes away.

How was the contact with the host?
Very good and personal. Luc speaks excellent Dutch for those who hesitate in French. Friendly, relaxed reception.

Tips for new guests?
It's a manageable step from your tent to the front...requires some planning. You can find water at the stable (they will show you the way) ... electricity in the building in front to charge your mobile phone or lamp. Plan your shopping trip because it's a long way away... know that the Florennes Air Force Base is nearby, the flying jets are a daily occurrence. Taste the goat cheese products - from cheese, yogurt to ice creams - be sure. You note what you use and pay cash on departure.

The first night we slept on the meadow and enjoyed the beautiful view despite the rain. The second day the water poured and we almost got stuck on the meadow. We were then allowed to take shelter in one of the stables for our second night, thank goodness! Despite the bad weather we enjoyed our stay here!

We camped in a very beautiful green field inside the farm, the owners showed us how to milk the cows and goats, it is a very nice place for children.
However, as we were in tents, we were missing a place to wash the plates/pan. It was the only negative point. We hope to get back soon (when a sink is placed :-) )

This was such a nice stay. The camping spot is large, with a beautiful view on the meadows where the cows graze. It is also very quiet and the only sound you hear in the morning is the field of the many birds that live in the nearby woods. The hosts are so welcoming and warm. We visited the farm and the lovely goats which we could even bottle-feed. Highly recommended place!

Farmer Marcel, his wife Esmeralda and their son are very sweet hospitable people, who are proud to show you and taste their organic farm. They make their own delicious products that they also offer for sale. The camping pitches are very spacious and there are places to make a campfire. You stand on the edge of a forest with a view over the fields and the occasional company of some friendly cows. Highly recommended!
