Campfires are allowed, subject to weather conditions, and on the condition that you take water (provided in a bucket or watering can for safety). Precision at the time of the installation.
In a chestnut grove, on a small plateau, away from the village and out of sight.
At night the owls will be your companions, sometimes the visit of a roe deer, or a marten (rare).
Location in the shade of chestnut trees.
The sanitary facilities
place for the fire
there is a bread dispenser nearby, which allows you to have fresh bread every day; it is located on the parking lot of the village hall (about 500 m on foot)
There are many possibilities for hiking around the village, and the proximity of the Pibeste nature reserve allows you to have access to a preserved environment. Many species of wild animals are present on the site, from the most discreet to the most noisy (deer, fox, salamander frogs, toads, newts, tawny owls, woodpeckers...)
Horses and other 4-legged friends are welcome, under the responsibility of their masters.
Unfortunately, access is not possible for 4X4 vehicles or camping cars.
I have 1 tent 2/3 places, but not the bedding
Exact location information is provided after a booking is confirmed.
The communication with Xavier was precise.
At the end of August we were hiking in the area, the site is geographically well placed in this sense.
The bivouac site is globally calm and the chestnut grove has some character. A reserve of 20 liters of water was provided to us.
I keep the address under the elbow!
The chestnut grove is a magical place. We arrived after the storm and the forest was beautiful.
There is a 20L canister that allows you to do your toilet at the camp. The dry toilets are not in a great state after the visit of a deer, but the place is really worth to be discovered in spite of this small defect!
A little more compared to the pictures: there is now a hut under construction, which is not totally waterproof but allows to shelter the stuff in case of heavy rain (by the way, a tip, take a tarp and some string to make a roof under the tent, easy with all these trees around).
Thanks a lot for the welcome!
Perched in the middle of the forest, Xavier's little camp is great. It is around a campfire that we spent a night in peace. I recommend
Xavier welcomed us very well in his chestnut grove! We spent a great evening in the middle of nature, with the campfire and the sound of nature
We will remember for a long time this unusual and refreshing camp
Xavier is friendly.
The camp is good for 1 or 2 nights.
We had a great night with our family.
We recommend it!
Really great place, unfortunately for us it was stormy the night we stayed so we couldn't enjoy the campfire, which is a very nice possibility.
The host is also very nice!
Perfect place for those who love the forest with the possibility of a campfire, while being close to civilization!
Xavier is a considerate host.
Great night spent at Xavier's. Very welcoming, small corner of nature very pleasant
An ideal space for a nature discovery and campfire.
Pleasant camping in a secluded corner of the property
Simply perfect. Wild, what I was looking for, an hour from town, down the mountain. Xavier is a nice hotel, teachable, and generous. He gave me many tips about edible plants, the best markets in the area, and even brought me pancakes one night. He even brought me pancakes one night and good wood to start the fires. A real plus on this field, well located, only hitch there is a very small road not far for the tractors of the farmers, and sometimes it is necessary to get up early, and the chestnuts that stings, so take good shoes. This is just some advice because the experience is to be made, the quality of the reception, the dry toilets, the possibility to make fires, and the approach to the nature is superb. I highly recommend it.
Thank you Xavier! The land is perfect and quiet.
