  • First experience with our roof tent at Jacky's, everything lived up to our expectations, calm and serenity in a very pleasant setting, conveniently located close to hiking trails yet within walking distance of the town (15-20 minutes) via a magnificent little path.
    Friendly welcome
    Clean toilets

  • Thank you for a wonderful night on your land. We didn't get a chance to say hello. We'd also like to offer our plot in the same way in the 54. What are the obligations and declarations to be made? Thank you for your feedback. Bonne continuation. Jean-Sébastien

  • Our son, for his birthday wanted to return "at Jacky's" where we had gone one day to have dinner with friends. So we invited the friends and slept under the tent (by 2 degrees and a rain sometimes beating, the weather was not nice with us!)
    In spite of everything, we spent a wonderful time and were welcomed at the top. Jacky is attentive, available. He even gave a little gift to our son. Great place near the lake!

    Problems of inflatable mattresses...Jacky is there, a small desire of spread for the breakfast, the following day there is some on the table, needs of information on the area...ask Jacky, etc...
    I advise you the breakfast, it is copious, varied, every day Jacky proposes a small change.the ground is well, a little sloping but by seeking a little you will find a beautiful place to plant your tent.
    Jacky again thank you and surely see you a third time.

  • Jacky is a loving host, we loved that he took time out of his day to come and chat with us. He knows the area very well and is very good at giving advice.
    Being able to sit down and have a barbecue was great. The surroundings are nice for an early morning walk.
    Beware of the Mérelle tower, magnificent viewpoint but there is a queue in front of it.
