Little paradise close to frogs and wild medicinal flowers! A land not far from shops and really close of Durbuy. Not in the middle of the forest, next to a village, but very peacefull with not a lot of people around! We don't take more than 2 campspots at the same time. Great spot to relax and reconnect with nature! We have also minimum facilities for you (solar shower, electrical spot to charge phone etc and composting toilet). There is a cycle road ("Ravel") just in front of the gate, so you can go for nice tour around directly in the forest.
We've got also bikes (vtt) if you need.

Hello! My brother and I, Seb and Val, are into musical, audiovisual and education activities. We also are passionate by wild medicinal plants and very interested about permaculture, self production, low energy and alternative projects. We love to meet new people and share our little original paradise 😊

Beautiful, peaceful garden with a large pond, all the basics you need, a hammock and a campfire area. Valérie and Sébastien have made ecological choices when furnishing the facilities (shower, toilet, dishes, etc.). I enjoyed the peace in their nice garden.

How was the contact with the host?
Valérie is very cordial and enthusiastic. She gave me a tour of the garden at the start. It was a nice reception.

Nice and natural place…
It is still under development, but it is already enjoying. Places have been created everywhere to allow herbs and plants to find their natural way.
You can make a fire at the campfire place. There is a compost toilet, a solar shower and electricity to recharge.
It is basic but even then equipped with various comforts.
We love it😊

How was the contact with the host?
We could not give an exact arrival time, but that was no problem. The communication was perfect.
Valérie made us feel very welcome and gave us a tour with the necessary explanation of all the special places and the upcoming plans.
We will definitely come back.
She has given several tips for trips in the area.
Thank you Valérie for your hospitality

Tips for new guests?
Just go with the flow…

A day at the Crow's Rock to swim and relax.
Various caves and hikes to do in the area
Ice creams at Banana Split are delicious.

We had a great time in this garden-house of wildflowers, buzzing with insects and life. Full of peaceful corners. The river and shops not far away. Ideal for recharging one's batteries. Only downside, there is a road below (600m?) which reminds us that we are in Belgium and that we hear in the distance. This will not prevent us from returning to this corner of paradise. Valérie and her brother are charming and welcoming and well aware of the ecological issues of our time. GO!

Thank you Stéphane for your message :) We are happy that you were able to enjoy all the little corners of the land and that you enjoyed your stay here! Looking forward to seeing you again here, we stay in touch ;)

Tell us about your experience
Nice land, very large and surrounded by wildflowers, wild. Dry toilet and shower. The campfire is common to both locations. Wood available. Garden chairs, rubbish sorting area, table for washing up, socket for recharging telephones. On the other hand, we did not particularly hear the singing of the frogs... It was perhaps hot and the land being in the village, we heard the noises of people's lives, with mowers, the work of neighbors, the dogs, the road a little, ... So it was not the great calm announced but when you know it, it's really good. The advantage: proximity to the bakery, Durbuy 2.5 km away on foot and visually the feeling of being surrounded by nature.

How was the contact with the host?
Welcome from Sébastien with ease. He goes around the field and shows the little tips and tricks. Very nice. Very discreet then.

Tips for new guests?
The sunset is indeed very beautiful from the small bench.
Durbuy 2.5km on foot via the Ravel.

Thank you for your comment. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay, despite the small noises of the surroundings. Frogs are always a bit calmer in July, after the mating season 😉

We are already looking forward to a next time!

We very much enjoyed this small hidden quiet nature place. Everything needed was there. The hostess and gentleman were very friendly. At night you can really hear the frogs in the pond come to life and it gives
the feeling that you are really in the middle of nature.

How was the contact with the host?
The contact was quick and clear.

Tips for new guests?
A visit to Durbuy is a must.

It was very nice. We were in the caravan in a nice spot with lots of privacy. Lots of noise from frogs but we were prepared for that. Beautiful sunset from the camping spot. A good bakery at 700 m walking distance and the Ourthe + a beautiful forest within walking distance. Beautiful holiday

How was the contact with the host?
They were very nice people and we got a tour. They are very helpful and can possibly tell you something about the area.

Tips for new guests?
To be sure, do a mosquito check in the caravan before going to sleep.

Tell us about your experience
We had very little contact with the host. At arrival the gate was closed and the host didn’t answer when called. We decided to climb the gate and there we found someone who showed us around and where to put the tent. The place was very beautiful, there was a pretty pond with many frogs, and a lot of pretty flowers and grass everywhere.

June 2021

Host Valérie et Sébastien has responded

Hello! Yes sorry about the gate...It was a really bad weather that day... I'm happy that you enjoy the place!

Jorre

Tell us about your experience
The contact with the host(s) was very positive and clear. They were very friendly and welcoming, and Valérie gave us a little tour around her garden full of medicinal flowers, which was very interesting. Our camping spot was surrounded by tall grass and pretty lavender flowers, and our tent was located under a tree so we had enough shade (thank god, it was 32 degrees!). I really liked the whole vibe of the location and the work they put into it: the little art projects, colourful lights at the entrance, hammocks to relax, a solar shower and a bio toilet. The hosts clearly care about sustainability and art, which are two things I value a lot myself. This quiet and friendly place was exactly what I was looking for and I had a lovely time. I will certainly go back some day!

Valérie is a very friendly and pleasant host. She was always ready to give tips about walks in the neighborhood, etc. The garden with wildflowers and the accommodations were fine. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to get away from home.

Valerie was a very pleasant and friendly host and also shows interest in the activities you want to do and helps you with that. Camping is very quiet and radiates nature in itself.
