Description

Your simple wooden hut, set on two terraces on stilts at 2m50 from the ground, in the middle of the pine forest, in Provence, 10-12 minutes from the sea. We are on the way of the GR51.
A quiet place, restful, an alternative to the tent... a little more comfort can't hurt ! :)

For the hut we really prefer to book for two to three nights because the setting up of dry toilets, shower and sanitary facilities, the cleaning, the bed to be made, the coffee/tea refill, etc... are a bit heavy to manage for us; knowing that we voluntarily put a very soft price and that the payments of the campers are almost entirely reinvested in the equipments which are intended to them :) or in the construction of a future new hut in 2023 !

I hope you will understand us and share our approach.

Please take a few minutes to read the rest of the description in order to discover what we propose and our way of seeing life ;)

The setting

You will be really in the middle of the pines, on a restanque, very quiet in your hut on stilts, with the two wooden terraces...
The cicadas will be present in summer, from June 15 to August 15, but they will be silent at night :). No parasite lights, a view on the vineyards through the pines, it's quite quiet... :)
The access by car is easy and you will be parked "a little in the shade" behind the big Cypress tree at 150-200m from your hut.

The spots

The Trapper's hut is well located, without any visibility on our house, on a restanque at the bottom of the land with a view on vineyards two restanques down and villages in the distance (2 to 3 km).
The hut benefits from a good sunshine in spring and shade when needed, appreciable in summer!
A double bed with a good mattress, ventilation, a kettle with tea/coffee/sugar offered for your entire stay, and a complete set of cutlery, plates, glasses, etc...

The sanitary facilities

The dry toilets on the right side of the cabin are brand new, built for the campers, spring 2021!

There is also since June 2022 a sanitary space: it's a small, simple and clean space with hot/cold water shower at the back of the hut!

Further on you will find a large hot/cold water tub for dishes and small laundry if needed and a large clothesline.

Organic and 100% degradable cleaning and hygiene products are requested.
The dry toilets are also brand new, and you'll see, it's very comfortable and there is no smell at all... and moreover everything is recycled ! :)

The amenities

Large shared fridge under shelter at your disposal, access to the freezer also possible (when we are there), drinking water accessible under shelter all the time, large accessible clothesline, Internet in Wifi (all) near our house, loan of diving masks, etc...

Don't forget to bring a small camping gas or an electric stove to cook, it's not a gite, but a gamping hut ;)
For the rest ask us !

The activities

Hiking, kayaking, snorkeling, fabulous golf views, diving, horseback riding, boating, swimming, creeks, jet skiing, paddling, sailing, climbing, paragliding, wine tasting of Bandol, Cotes de Provence or Cassis, all this is accessible within 15 minutes from the house and sometimes even on foot!

Other things

A question... ask us!
A vehicle (car, bike, motorcycle, etc.) is essential because we are a little far from everything and on foot there is only a bakery and a caterer at 10 min (one way...) !

For the hut we really prefer to book for two to three nights because the setting up of dry toilets, of the shower and the sanitary facilities, the cleaning, the bed to be made, the coffee/tea refill, etc... are a little heavy to manage for us; knowing that we voluntarily put a very soft price and that the payments of the gampeurs are almost entirely reinvested in the equipments which are intended to them :) or in the construction of a future new hut!

I hope you will understand us and share our approach.


Rules

No fire, neither BBC on the wooden terraces nor in the hut (but possible stove under a dedicated shelter) and therefore guests who do not smoke or who really (but really!) know how to manage their butts because the risks of fire are real in Provence :)
Waste management is imperative, but it seems obvious, doesn't it ;)
For the rest, you are isolated from our house, quiet in the middle of the pampa for the campers or at the bottom of the parking space for the camping car or on your restanque, in the trapper's hut with its 2 terraces on stilts!
------
No fire on the wood decks or in the cabin (but possible to use a torch under a dedicated shelter) and therefore non-smoking guests required, or people who take care of their cigarettes, fire hazards are real Provence :)
Waste management imperative, but it seems obvious right? ;)
Otherwise, you will not be stuck to our from our house, you will be alone in the middle of the land with your tent, or at the end of the parking area with your mobil home !

  • It is rare that I use the notation "Perfect" because nothing is perfect in life, but when you expect a good welcome, a simple place with a minimum of comfort (it is a cabin, not a hotel or a luxury cottage) and you discover a charming place, beautiful, with a very honorable comfort, small attentions, welcoming hosts, warm, listening to the slightest need, it is difficult not to find the whole perfect ... . Moreover, Carine and Christophe have a very human philosophy of their project. The idyllic place, provides a feeling of serenity, ideal for a true resourcefulness. The region that we already knew a little is enchanting but thanks to their good advice, we could discover other places and make other acquaintances. To recommend without hesitation for the lovers of the nature and the human "good nature".

  • ...what can I say... just perfect, beyond expectations.... a most benevolent welcome, kindness, respect and empathy are the key words. The place and the cabin breathe happiness, serenity and love. I recommend without any worries. Thank you very much to Christophe and Carine.

  • Very nice stay welcome at the top super friendly to do again very quickly :)

  • Very nice welcome for a nice little comfortable cabin,
    Pleasant even if it rains, it is a small cocoon to recharge your batteries.
    Beautiful walks in the vineyards from the hut.

  • Carine and Christophe are the best hosts!
    Kindness, very good reception and relevant advices to take advantage of their stay and of their beautiful region.
    The hut is away from their place of life, and we spend good moments in all intimacy.
    I will come back with pleasure!
    Hosts, region and cabin to recommend without moderation.

  • Great stay. Very accessible and well explained. The setting is beautiful, the cabin is very well equipped and the welcome was perfect. Thank you very much

  • Great welcome from Christine and Carine in this very warm hut :)
    We followed Christophe and Carine's advices about hikes and places to visit, and had a great weekend ! I strongly recommend

  • An address as we like them! We feel like at home thanks to our warm hosts. With very good advices to discover the region, they were a key part of the success of our stay in the South!
    We are looking forward to meet Carine and Christophe again for a next getaway!

  • A 5 star welcome from Christophe and Carine. The very nice exchanges before the arrival already announced a pleasant stay, but on the spot, the welcome, the attentions, the exchanges put at ease and make the experience of the hut even more delicious. We feel good in this place, with these people. It's a pleasure to meet people with a sharing approach such as this one, in the respect of beautiful human values and the environment.
    I warmly recommend it.
    A big thank you for your welcome.

  • Superb place, I am in the angels by this place.
    Very good welcome and good moments of sharing with Christophe.

  • Christophe and Carine are hosts who opened their domain and their hearts to us! Sensitive to the protection of nature and deeply humanistic, our exchanges were very enriching. Our stay was pleasantly punctuated by small delicate attentions. The hut under the pines is an intimate place, perfect to recharge your batteries and come back to the essential, a place where everything has been thought of so that you don't miss anything. If you need serenity, it's here!

  • Like a feeling of being reunited with loved ones! Second year in a row for us: after a stay under the tent in 2020, we enjoyed the other side of the site, and the little wooden hut in the middle of the vineyards of Bandol. Once again, we were extremely well received by Carine & Christophe. Always attentive and listening, we were able to spend a wonderful week again, in this very pretty corner of France. It is now up to you to try the experience, you will not be disappointed...

  • A first home camping experience more than successful: a very nice cabin in an idyllic setting that looks like the hosts Christophe and Karine, warm and welcoming.

    The philosophy behind their different projects combines the taste of sharing, human and respect for the environment, these values add an extra serenity to the place.

    A small road between the vineyards awaits you just before discovering the place, change of scenery guaranteed.
    The sea is very close and thanks to their very complete PDF guide, it will be easy for you to organize your escapades in the creeks etc.

    Everything is provided for a comfortable stay, the respect of the intimacy is very appreciable.

    Whether it is for a couple, a family or friends, you will leave with very nice memories.

    Thank you again!

  • The stay was great!
    Christophe gave us a warm welcome. He is super available and attentive.
    We hope to come back!
    PS: the cabin, it's great, even in winter ????
    Thanks for everything

  • Carine and Christophe welcomed us perfectly in their charming pine forest. The cabin is very comfortable in all weathers, sun or rain. The setting is ideal and very calm (sitting on the terrace, we even saw 2 wild boars in the forest! ). The bathrooms are very clean and pleasant. We particularly appreciated the bottle of rosé wine in the fridge to welcome us. Great stay !

  • Nice place as well as the owners.
    Perfect to rest in the calm.

  • Christophe and Carine were attentive, friendly and open-minded hosts, answering all our questions. We spent a lot of good moments to exchange around an aperitif. We spent an excellent stay in the cabin. The terrace is very pleasant to relax and eat with view on the vineyards below and the mountains and the cicadas which sing in the pines, in short an idyllic corner not far from the sea and without neighbors. The cabin is perfect, the bed comfortable with mosquito net, we slept very well. There is a lot of information (maps, books, etc.) about the activities to do in the area. The noise of the highway is not omnipresent and did not disturb us to sleep. And considering the price we can't complain or go elsewhere for much more ;-)!
    When we went to the sea Christophe and Carine even lent us their masks and snorkels, it was great!
    We warmly recommend this small corner of greenery lost in the middle of vineyards. We will come back if the opportunity arises!

  • Already, a very warm welcome from Christophe. The arrival towards the cabin without opposite allows a true independence and a return in childhood. The hut is comfortable and we spent 3 very pleasant nights. The dry toilets are in the glamping spirit ????. The fridge at our disposal is very practical and the bathroom very clean. We hope to return there!

  • Carine and Christophe welcomed us very well! We stayed 4 nights in the cabin and we could fully enjoy the region thanks to their many tips and good plans.
    The hut is beautiful, we greatly appreciated the terrace on which we took our meals. The sanitary facilities were very clean, the toilets next to the hut allowed us to be independent.
    They are very friendly hosts, welcoming and responsive, ready to answer all our questions!
    We highly recommend you to stay at Carine and Christophe's place

  • A dream stay.
    My daughter and her friend were very well received by Christophe and Carine.
    So much thoughtfulness and attention.
    A wonderful setting, among the trees, with the cicadas as neighbors.
    This is VIP camping :).
    Thanks again and bravo for your welcome.
    Olivier.

  • Very nice place, very nice wooden hut in a nice setting.
    Basic communication and welcome.

  • Wonderful stay with Christophe and Carine!
    Magnificent setting, cosy and very warm cabin where we spent a very pleasant week!
    A peaceful vacation place, perfect to recharge your batteries.
    Thank you again to both of you for your kindness and your generosity, we can't wait to come back!

  • Hello,
    We would like to thank Christophe and Carine for their welcome and all the good tourist advice they gave us.
    The hut is very well insulated and the terraces are very pleasant with their splendid view. The description is really accurate, we can't see Christophe and Carine's house from the hut, we appreciated this privacy.

    In summary we had a very pleasant stay, thank you both!

    Gilles and Anne Laure

  • The place is beautiful and Christophe did everything to make our stay easier. Don't forget your toaster :)

  • Christophe and Carine are adorable, caring, everything is perfect!
    The cabin is magnificent with two beautiful terraces!
    The sanitary and shower area is also practical and perfect!
    You can go there with closed eyes ... but open because the setting is beautiful!
    Thank you and see you soon

  • I don't know where to start so much our week in this cabin was great.

    Let's start with the hosts, Christophe and Carine are so kind and considerate.
    Extremely available they give you all the good tips of the region (culinary/touristic) while respecting your privacy.

    Concerning the hut, a little wonder.
    Very well located, you will not be too hot or too cold.
    The bed is also very comfortable.
    And this terrace... At the top to listen to the song of the cicadas...
    A real happiness.


    Conclusion, do not ask yourself any more questions.
    Book before we do it before you to relive great moments...

  • This hut is a little nugget in the middle of a very charming Provencal landscape. Carine and Christophe are generous hosts and passionate about their region. To be redone as soon as possible!

  • Chris and Carine are excellent people. They welcomed us very kindly and gave us recommendations of where to go during our 4 day stay.
    The cabin was very nice, comfortable and pleasant!
    We were very happy with our stay, we would like to come back anyway.
    100% recommended!

  • Our stay at Christophe and Carine's, perfect, a cabin in all simplicity with comfort, nickel sanitary... excellent stay. Thank you again for your welcome

  • very good reception and beautiful situation of the site - proximity of the D559B to join the littoral or the stores - many conveniences in this hut (guides, plans, necessary with hot drinks ....) and further, the corner medical is well equipped. good memory. Thank you!

  • Small, warm and relaxing cabin. Even in the rain and wind, it was a relaxing little nest.

  • A big thank you to Christophe and Carine for their warm welcome, the hut is superb with a wonderful view

    To be redone as soon as possible

  • Really nice stay at Christophe and Carine's place.
    Beautiful region, beautiful cabin and very warm welcome! We recommend with pleasure.

  • Great welcome. Cabin at the top. Beautiful place. Change of scenery and quietness assured. I recommend to nature lovers.

  • Great stay in this very nice cabin! Thanks again for the welcome!

  • We had a pleasant stay with Christophe and Carine.
    They are two very nice hosts. They remain available for all the necessary information about the outings and places to discover in their region.
    We felt completely independent and at ease in this pretty little cabin.
    A nice aperitif was offered to us with the other gampeurs.
    We recommend this address to you in order to find calm and rest while remaining at the same time close to the sea but also to the beauties of the lands of Provence.
    Marie & Alex

  • My stay with Carine and Christophe D. went well. Their welcome and their discretion allow me to recommend a stay with them.

  • Great experience at Christophe and Carine's... nothing to complain about! Sublime setting... Warm and welcoming host...memorable wakings in front of the sun...starry nights... We will come back !

  • We spent a pleasant stay in all intimacy at Christophe and Carine's place. The place was in agreement with our expectations! We will keep a good memory of our first gamping experience!

  • Very nice concept! Rustic setting and really cosy cabin, we had a great stay. Christophe and Carine received us very well and gave us good advice about the area. To be tested!

  • Splendid stay in this cabin, everything was as described, a pure delight with in more a just perfect weather.
    The welcome of my hosts was the same, kindness and lots of good advice were required, nothing to say it was top, for my 1st experience gamping I could not ask for more.
    I will return to them for sure, thank you again Christophe & Carine

  • The stay at Carine and Christophe's place was wonderful! The hut is as described and as shown in the photos: no opposite, very pleasant terraces in the morning and in the evening to enjoy a good meal, a beautiful private bathroom built by Christophe, many guides at your disposal... Both of them are very attentive, available and very attentive. They advised us a great vineyard where we could taste and buy delicious wines of Bandol, but also peaceful places to swim away from the tourists and even... a dentist who could take me in emergency !
    This vacation did us a lot of good and we hope to come back soon to enjoy the cabin again (But if you prefer to camp, their pitches also have a very nice view!).
    So don't hesitate, you won't be disappointed!

  • Second stay at Christophe and Carine's; real ambassadors of Gamping! A particularly pleasant and friendly meeting. Stay always so ressourçant. We love it!

  • Our stay with Christophe and Carine was simply perfect! The cabin has a great location with two terraces - perfect for a morning coffee or an evening glass of wine.
    Christophe and Carine's welcome was very warm and they were attentive to our needs throughout our stay.
    We will definitely come back and I highly recommend this little paradise to anyone who wants to spend a few quiet days in nature but at the same time not far from the Mediterranean and nice little picturesque villages!

  • Beware this hut can create addictions, as soon as we got back we already booked to go back there! Go there, run there, and greet Carine and Christophe and the octopus of the port of Alon on our behalf.

  • Everything has been said by the gampeurs who stayed at Christophe and Carine's place, I could see their excellent opinions and was lucky enough to stay there for four days. a shower and toilets nearby, a water point close to the cabin.For those who do not have a car, there is the possibility of renting a scooter in Bandol (200m from the station) and to be at home in just 15 minutes, and to circulate by scooter, in the area, it is a treat provided that you are careful.

  • Young parents, we spent an excellent stay in this cabin to rest a big WE. Between idleness on the terrace, creeks and cellars... Christophe and Carine are great hosts! Super state of mind! With very good advices, who facilitate your stay, who preserve your intimacy and at the same time open to the meetings and to the exchanges, with whom it is pleasant to share an aperitif! We will certainly come back ...

    Thank you for everything!

  • Magnificent setting, up to our expectations.
    Very beautiful cabin, surrounded by forest overhanging the vineyards...
    A pleasure for the eyes and to enjoy the nature.
    Thanks to our hosts for their welcome.
    We will gladly come back

  • A big thank you to Christophe and Carine for the quality of their welcome, their kindness and all the precious sharing of good tips! I had the chance to stay one week in this beautiful cabin, it is quite close to the sea, and at the same time quiet in the middle of a pine forest, a little corner of Paradise to discover!
    And thank you also to Gamping for this great site that I will share :-)

  • Hello to you "Gampeurs" friends,
    We have just spent 5 wonderful days in Carine and Christophe's cabin. Charming hosts, very considerate, beautiful people that we have the pleasure to meet. Their hut and their tent site have an extraordinary view and we can't wait to go back there soon. Thanks again.
    Catherine and Beb.
