If you like the basics for camping this is great. This big garden has ducks walking past your tent during the day, a pig chilling under a tree ...
Great view on the Mont Saint Michel. Shops within walking distance. Avranches is a great city to wander around in the late evening.

How was the contact with the host?
Very friendly hosts, they shared a lot of tips for things to visit in the area. Communication via campspace got used quick.

Tips for new guests?
You can't park your car next to your tent. But parking space is not far from the campground.
Only 1 shower, so be patient.

We had a beautiful place and were immediately received wonderfully relaxed. With our two young children (1 and 3) we enjoyed ourselves in the beautiful garden. There is also much to experience in the area. It was very hot during our stay and Zoe arranged a bath for our boys to bathe in. So great! Highly recommended!

How was the contact with the host?

Il fait bon-vivre dans le joli jardin de Zoë...Sa belle vision du monde se réflète dans ce lieu créatif, où l'inpiratrice vous invite à respecter la nature et la Terre...
And bonus, le jardin vous offer une vue magnifique sur le Mont-Saint-Michel!
Une visite à la Pointe du Groin du Sud est vivement recommended and fin de journée!
Un bel endroit à découvrir...

It was an amazing campspace with an even more amazing view on the Mont.
There were different spots on different heights to choose from to put up our tents, all of them were really charming and full of character.
The host was super friendly and helpful, she made us an amazing breakfast with pancakes and homemade jams.

How was the contact with the host?
The host was super friendly and helpful.

Tips for new guests?
Choose a spot with a good view on the Mont and don't startle of the snoring pot-bellied pig at night.

This is truly a dream place! It is a fantastic large garden, which the owner makes "PowerSalads": everything in the garden is edible. The garden provides edible products all year round: from vegetables to flowers and herbs. Of course you also get to taste such a delicious salad! The garden has a beautiful view (on Le Mont Saint Michel) and is a lovely place to stay for a night or more. It is also a wonderful place for children to play: enough space for games, a swing and there are various animals: a pig, dog, chickens and ducks. All in all, a very strong recommendation!

How was the contact with the host?
The host is very friendly and speaks fluent English. She is happy to tell you all about her garden and the salads she makes. She also takes sustainability and organic production into account in everything.

Tips for new guests?
Take a walk through the garden, taste the salad and let the host tell you everything about the garden and the salads.

Fantastic place, piece of paradise on earth!
With our small bus camper we were allowed to maneuver at the top of the site to a small space under a tree. Beautiful view, wonderfully in the middle of the natural between the most beautiful flowers, plants and cozy ducks :-) . Zoe also made us a delicious pasta with power salad, highly recommended this place!

Very nice location but unfortunately not accessible with a camper. Campers are in a small parking lot along the street, not great. For tents, it's perfect. Very basic but clean sanitary facilities.

How was the contact with the host?
Very warm welcome by Zoe despite our late arrival time.

Fantastically beautiful place to spend the night with your tent. In the middle of their garden and every now and then ducks walk past in stride croaking with pleasure. Also close to many attractions like San Michelle

How was the contact with the host?
Good

Tips for new guests?
Stay at least a few days, but be aware of changeable weather due to the area.

Tell us about your experience
The campspace was nice. Zoe answered quickly and confirmed the stay. The location is cool, they have a permaculture farm and have an awesome view on Mont St. Michel - the drive there takes around 30 minutes. However, we were traveling with a camping van and an additional tent, and her property is not suited to drive on by car and I guess she would also prefer guests to not do it. So I wouldn't recommend going there if you travel with a camping van. If you travel by bike or with a normal car then it is no problem as you can find a really nice place to put up your tent and leave your car on the parking place. But still, it was a nice stay and definitely an interesting farm to visit.

Zoe's place was great! We loved the view, the people, all the plants and trees, her power salad and, of course, the ducks. The toilets and shower are simple but always clean.

My stay was really nice in Zoe's organic farm. The atmosphere is really nice and cosy with plenty of space and places to rest and chill. It is really nice the work they are doing in the farm and it is really calm and inspiring
