About this campspace #s005238

Your host

Marije

We have two spacious bell tents with a comfortable double bed. Two camp beds can be added per tent. There is a bathroom and fully equipped kitchen.
Within 50 meters you are in the forest where you can enjoy hiking or mountain biking. Within 25 minutes you are at Gerardmer or Longemer. Here you can enjoy a swim, walk or sit on one of the many beautiful terraces. In addition to the tents, we started an organic market garden this year. Where possible, guests can already enjoy fresh organic vegetables :-) In the autumn we will also start the construction of a food forest on our site, together with our French neighbours.

Don't feel like cooking after a day of adventures? We are happy to prepare a nutritious organic vegetable meal for you, where possible with ingredients from our own garden.

We are Marije Vonk-Heinen and Mattijs Vonk. In 2021 we emigrated from the Netherlands to the Vosges, together with our son Pelle (3 years old). Marije is a Physiotherapist (Oncology) and Mattijs Communications Advisor and Designer.

We started a microglamping and organic market garden in the Vosges, called 'Les Jardins de Biffontaine', because we want to live closer to nature, seek more variety in our lives and contribute more to the local community. The fact that we are also true Francophiles has of course also played a major role.

We have started a new life with the main focus on running Les Jardins de Biffontaine. In addition, however, we both remain active in our own field. Marije still massages and is busy developing oncological retreats, while Mattijs is active online as a designer and communication and marketing advisor. Pelle will go to school in Biffontaine from September and fortunately also seems very satisfied with his new life.

Super nice place to stay for a beautiful holiday in the Vosges / Alsace. The tents are spacious and comfortable, we slept wonderfully in the beds. The bathroom is very neat and the kitchen is perfect for cooking your own meals (the fresh products from Mattijs and Marije's garden are highly recommended).

The surrounding nature is beautiful and is ideal for walks. We took the car for a day to Xonrupt Longemer and Hohneck (recommended!) but the forest next to Mattijs and Marije's house is just as much worth it. We also drove into Alsace for a day, which was easy to do by car.

For anyone who is looking for a relaxing holiday in breathtaking nature, but does not want to compromise on comfort, this is the perfect stay.

How was the contact with the host?
Mattijs and Marije are very cordial and do their best to give you a good stay. They were quick to help us with questions and they had good advice for activities in the area. Very good hosts!

Tips for new guests?
Bring warm clothes. Because you are a bit higher it can be cold at night. And go into nature!

Enjoyed the silence and tranquility in the immediate vicinity of the woods. Made very nice walks. We also took a trip to the Gerard Lake, definitely worth it! The tents are large and comfortable (especially with young children). The children slept on a luxurious camp bed. The kitchen is well equipped if you like to cook for yourself. The vegetables from the host's vegetable garden are very tasty! Everything is there for a comfortable stay. There are also toys for the little ones, who will not get bored easily.

How was the contact with the host?
The landlords are very friendly and discreet. Smooth communication.

Tips for new guests?
Bring extra blankets/sufficiently warm clothes in case of bad weather (no fire bowl).

Very pleasant and quiet place to stay. All necessary comfort was present. Beautiful area for walking. Delicious dinner, with home-grown vegetables. And sleep soundly in the tent with bed. Recommended!
