My mare Pouchka and I are ready to take you for a walk in the forest, if time and my availability allow it.
Possibility to pick some fruits or vegetables depending on the season. For the specific needs of the camper (emptying) we have to see.
There is always "garden maintenance" to be done, if you wish and if you know a little bit about it, a little help for the garden maintenance against "reimbursement" of a part of the reception fee, make me the proposal at the beginning of your stay...we can always arrange it.

Exact location information is provided after a booking is confirmed.
Very good stay with Claudine.
Very nice place in the countryside.
Dry toilets appreciable.
Very well equipped courtyard, very useful in case of rain.
Only one small drawback, the access to the shower room closes a little early. It would be necessary at this time to have a water point under the courtyard.
Very good reception, a clean bathroom at disposal, a calm and pleasant place in the middle of the countryside. A very successful last stop on the way back from vacation.
A very refreshing weekend spent with our hosts. A discreet and attentive welcome that we warmly recommend. The place is also beautiful, to recommend to people who know how to enjoy a natural environment in the respect of it!
