About this campspace

Looking for your own place, as if you were alone in the world? Then you've come to the right place! We are a small-scale project with 6 furnished cotton tents, 2 places for a trekking tent and 2 places for a (bus) camper,
You sometimes meet each other at the communal sanitary facilities or at the campfire site, but most tents are far apart.
A few tents are deliberately closer to the communal bathrooms and kitchen and this is useful if you have smaller children. You can choose your own spot after consultation. .. If you book in time, that is. We are easily accessible by car but also by train. A TGV stops in the neighboring town (5 km from the site).

Your host, Froya en Mark

Acceptance rate: 100%

Response time: fast

We are Froya & Mark, in love with each other and with the mountains for 14 years. The raw landscapes, the tranquility, the abundance of berries, herbs and mushrooms and animals... Every year our desire to move to the mountains grew greater. We found a beautiful piece of land with ruins. The ideal base for a wonderful nature and mountain experience where we would like to immerse you in a bath of simplicity and beauty.

Froya started her career as a florist, she is crazy about wild plants, herbs, mushrooms and mosses. An edible picking garden is still on her wish list.
Mark was a chef for many years and is a master at creating delicious meals with just a few ingredients. Together they hope to cover many more mountain trails.
