A privileged observatory of local flora and fauna, our garden offers a wealth of opportunities to discover and enjoy nature.
We are closed from September 1 to the end of June.

This year, 2023, Gamping opens on June 27 and closes on September 1.
More than just a pitch for your tent, it's a different way of life that you'll discover here, in the spirit of wilderness camping.
The camps are open-plan, spacious and can accommodate several tents. We only offer the same camp for members of the same family or group, so you're guaranteed privacy, even if you're one or two people.
No tent? Take advantage of our "ready-to-camp" service!
In the shade of the trees, 2 tents for 4 people each (with mattresses) have been set up on a wooden platform on stilts, with private garden furniture.
In keeping with the idea of wilderness camping, and to preserve our natural and wooded areas, the camps are not accessible by car (except for the prêt-à-camper). Your cars will be parked at the entrance to the property (about fifty meters from the camps).
The sanitary facilities
Dry toilets are available in the forest.
A shower is available in our home.
Outside, you have access to a drinking water point.
A table is at your disposal under the kiosk, a convivial place where you can meet other gamers.
Here you'll find electrical outlets, books, games and tourist information to help you discover the area.
Please note that, in keeping with the idea of a "wild camping" experience, there is no electricity in the camps.
Extension cords are not available.
Numerous hiking trails.
In Port d'Envaux (3km), you'll find a nautical base (pedalos, kayaks, swimming...) and a number of shops and restaurants.

Discovered by chance while searching on HomeCamper! Great welcome from Vanessa and her family. Idyllic place to pitch your tent or hammock. The food was delicious. And thanks again for picking the mirabelle plums! We'll be back again.
A very warm welcome from Stan and Vanessa. I felt at home in this little clearing in the middle of the forest!
In a secluded, natural setting, Vanessa and Stan are just like their welcome and cuisine: generous, quality and authentic.
I highly recommend a stopover!
Another great experience for our second year at Vanessa and Stan's campsite. Between the days spent in the shade of the trees and the many walks to do in the area, we did not miss anything in this little corner of Paradise!
See you next year!
We spent a perfect night in the ready to camp with our friends around a fire.
The place is natural and beautiful and Vanessa and Stan are welcoming.
The breakfast is delicious and all home made :-)
We will come back for more :-)
Very small stopover, but excellent moment in this corner of paradise...
We had a very good stay.
A true anchorage in an authentic natural setting.
A night by the campfire, a delicious dinner, an exquisite breakfast, a real "back to basics".
Thanks to Stan and Vanessa for their warm welcome!
This was my second visit and there will be more to come, no doubt.
We spent a week on the grounds of Stan and Vanessa, it was exactly what we were looking for, a return to the roots, calm and nature, with amenities very appreciable dry toilet, drinking water and shower in the home that despite our family of 9 people has never posed a problem for the shower, we have always been welcomed with a smile and kindness.
I recommend the breakfast, organic and copious.
Thank you Stan for all your good advice on the activities to do in the area.
We had a great week, thanks to you :)
we had a great time at vanessa and stan's house.
The second time we came and it was just as good as the first time.
We had a great time and the camps are very beautiful.
A break of a few days with our children, campfire atmosphere and grilled marshmallows in a top nature. A wooden table on the camp site would be a +++ . Thanks to Stan and Vanessa, we will be back :)
Thank you for this great stay! An adventurous evening on a wood fire surrounded by nature! Thank you for your warm welcome! We recommend and will be back with pleasure!
The setting is very pleasant, the surroundings very beautiful, the campsites are separate and spacious, and allow to make fires, Vanessa and her spouse, although discreet, are attentive to ensure that everything goes well. In short, a perfect stay! Extra especially with children. And not to be missed, the copious and delicious homemade breakfast and the excellent dinner,
We went as a family with our children, and this (too short!) stay was for all of us a wonderful and rejuvenating vacation, close to nature as we love it. Our hosts welcomed us with a lot of warmth and kindness and we were able to share good moments of exchange. Whether it is the place, the welcome, the sharing, the meals and breakfasts offered, the ultra natural living environment, everything is there!
It's for sure, this is an address not to forget!
Thank you Stan and Vanessa, Lise and Rose
See you soon
A very nice week at Vanessa's place, in the super-comfort camping! A warm welcome, a beautiful region full of sites to discover, nice meetings with other gamers: everything for a successful vacation. Our 4 children loved being in the middle of the animals and are already asking to come back. Thank you!
First experience with Gamping and we were not disappointed, very good welcome. Wild camping to recharge and in contact with nature.
Great first experience! Stayed 2 nights with 3 children. A very nice area, the wood fire super appreciated, a visit to the city of Saintes recommended. We celebrated the 14th of July on the banks of the Charante, after Vanessa's advice! Thank you for your kindness to you and your husband. See you soon! Fam Lebecq Voesterzoosn Belgium
Vanessa and Stan are very friendly and welcoming, it is very pleasant. We had a great time with the animals (cats, dogs, chickens, sheep, horses and rabbit) and they were very affectionate. Even if the weather was not on our side, it was a good vacation.
I recommend the meals, they are delicious!
A first for us despite the storm and rain, we had a great time, very family, we will return

The stay was short but great, they adapted very well to my needs.
We spent a great weekend in good company, we tasted magical breakfasts for the taste buds!!! What happiness!!! We will come back with our family ! You live in a wonderful soothing place, we thank you very much with Norah!!! ☺
What to say... we came to introduce my son to gamping. Very successful experience in the middle of the woods.
Our hosts welcomed us with simplicity and generosity. A charming and smiling couple, in love with nature and authenticity.
We will come back for sure.
A pleasant stay with Vanessa and her husband, hosts who invest a lot in the reception of the gampeurs. The breakfast is excellent and the setting very pleasant!
The warm welcome, the camping in the undergrowth with a small magical fire and a corner to discover.
To add an excellent table d'hôte and good exchanges with the other Gampers.
Nothing to say except that I'll be back.
A very pleasant stay, a quiet setting and generous and welcoming people, a very good stay in the nature.
Unforgettable stay at Vanessa and Stan's, a real happiness to live in the middle of nature. Their welcome is sincere and we had beautiful moments of sharing. We enjoyed making beautiful campfires, beautiful walks (under the advice of Stan and Vanessa), we enjoyed the breakfasts offered ... a true stay of well-being. Thank you for everything!!!you have inspired us on our way forward. See you soon
We spent a pleasant time for our night on this very pretty ground where the sight is sumptuous. What happiness to be able to go to seek its wood on this vast expanse of forest and to light its campfire! Our daughters loved this moment which is becoming an unauthorized and uncommon practice. Thanks to Vanessa and Stan for their relaxed and helpful welcome. We will be back to visit!
For a first experience in gamping, we spent two days in a small paradise, a haven of peace in the middle of nature. Friendly hosts with whom we shared a pleasant and succulent (and copious!) meal made of home-made and local products. It must be said that the breakfast is not in rest either! Let's add to that great advices to discover the surroundings, the banks of the Charentes and the forest. In short, a total success! Thanks again for your welcome, and see you next time!
Great stay with Vanessa and Stan. Very welcoming and open. A pleasure to discover the life of chickens, sheep, horses ... Children and adults were delighted, thank you, an address to remember!
PERFECT : location, reception, breakfasts, equipment... !!! A very good first experience of Gamping
Vanessa and Stan are a charming couple as is their property. We came for a weekend and felt like we were staying longer because the place is so relaxing. The breakfast is excellent and the kiosk where it takes place is really pleasant. We met other campers who were also charmed by the place and the experience. Our only regret: our program did not allow us to taste the dinner whose menu, which changes every day, makes your mouth water. In short, I highly recommend going to camp at Vanessa and Stan's.
We had a great stay at vannesa and stan, very nice high is always ready to help or to answer our questions. Thank you very much for all the information about the region. We had a great time with you!
Great stay with Vanessa and Stan. Highly recommended if you like nature and beautiful encounters!
Great time and beautiful place. We enjoyed the stay, long talks and amazing food a lot and will definitely recommend it to everyone we know.
For our first experience, we received a superb welcome from a charming family.
An address to keep and to pass on.
What a pleasure to camp in your garden so pleasant.
Your meals and your breakfast were appreciated by the whole family and remain a very good memory.
biz from us 5
This was such a beautiful campsite and a truly inspirational couple! Thank you so much for the tour of your small farm and for your hospitality. The breakfast blew us away: homemade bread, jam made from the fruit from their orchard, fresh milk from the cows next door and homemade yogurt. The ingredients were so "local" and so delicious :)
This experience was so much more than a place to sleep, but really a place to wake up and realize what life is really about :D Cheers!
An unusual place, with the spirit of travel, of sharing where nature is present at every place. Vanessa and Stan welcome you warmly. Thank you both for sharing your passion for nature and well-being. What can I say about the meals? hummmm a treat. A place where we want to come back. Best regards. Thierry and Colette
