Your simple wooden cabin, set on two terraces on stilts 2.50 m above ground, in the middle of a pine forest in Provence, 10-12 minutes from the sea. We're on the GR51 trail.
A quiet, restful place; an alternative to a tent... a little more comfort can't hurt! :)
For the hut, we really prefer two- to three-night bookings, as setting up the dry toilets, shower and sanitary facilities, cleaning, making the bed, refilling the coffee/tea refill, etc... are a bit too much for us to handle; bearing in mind that we've deliberately set a very low price and that campers' payments are almost entirely reinvested in the facilities intended for them :) or in the construction of a future new hut in 2023!
I hope you'll understand and share our approach.
Please take a few minutes to read the rest of the description to find out more about what we offer and how we see life ;)
You'll be in the middle of the pines, on a restanque, in the peace and quiet of your cabin on stilts, with its two wooden terraces...
The cicadas will be present in summer, from June 15 to August 15, but they'll be (email hidden)No extraneous lights, a view of the vineyards through the pines, it's pretty quiet... :) There is a slight noise from the freeway in the distance, covered by the cicadas in summer, but still present.
Access by car is easy, and you'll be parked "in the shade" behind the large Cypress tree 150-200m from your cabin.
La Cabane de Trappeur is well located, with no view of our house, on a restanque at the far end of the plot with a view of vineyards two restanques down and villages in the distance (2 to 3 km).
The cabin gets plenty of sunshine in spring and shade when needed, which is appreciated in summer!
A double bed with a good mattress, ventilation, a kettle with complimentary tea/coffee/sugar for your entire stay, and a complete set of cutlery, plates, glasses, etc...
The sanitary facilities
The dry toilets to the right of the cabin are brand new, built for campers, spring 2021!
Since June 2022, there's also a sanitary area: a small, simple, clean space with a hot/cold water shower at the back of the hut!
Further on, you'll find a large hot/cold water basin for washing up and small items if required, 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's not the slightest smell... and what's more, everything is recycled! :)
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 clothes line, Wifi Internet (everything) near our house, loan of diving masks, etc...
Don't forget to bring a small camping gas or electric stove for cooking, as this is not a gîte, but a camping hut ;)
For the rest, ask us!
Hiking, kayaking, snorkeling, fabulous golf courses with sea views, diving, horseback riding, boating, swimming, creeks, jet skis, paddles, sailing, rock climbing, paragliding, wine tasting at Bandol, Cotes de Provence or Cassis, all this is accessible within 15 minutes of the house, and sometimes even on foot!
A question... ask us!
A vehicle (car, bike, motorcycle, etc.) is essential as we're a bit far from everything, and on foot there's only a bakery and a delicatessen 10 minutes away (one way...)!
As far as the hut is concerned, we really prefer to book for two to three nights, as setting up the dry toilets, shower and sanitary facilities, cleaning, making the bed, refilling the coffee/tea refill, etc... are all a bit too much for us to handle; bearing in mind that we've deliberately kept the price very low, and that gamers' payments are almost entirely reinvested in the facilities intended for them :) or in the construction of a future new hut!
I hope you'll understand and share our approach.
Waste management is a must, but doesn't that seem obvious?)
For the rest, you are isolated from our house, quietly in the middle of the pampa for the campers or at the back 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!

Lovers of gentle living, peace and serenity, we were delighted by Carine and Christophe's delicious and delicate welcome!
You won't find such thoughtful hosts who welcome you in their dreamy cabin with a view and share all their good tips. An experience as unique as it is warm, in a surrounding countryside full of flavors and surprises, with the sea as a bonus a few steps away. You can only be charmed if you have the chance to stay.
A big thank you to our hosts for all their attention.
We just can't wait to come back to this unique place!
Very good stay in this pleasant hut that we found better in real than on the photos. Christophe's communication was excellent, anticipating our requests or answering them immediately.
Would we go back there? A 100% YES
Very good welcome from Carine and Christophe, thank you! The place is as described, it's a nice cabin.
A little corner of paradise! Christophe and Carine are very attentive and discreet hosts, very generous. The hut is like a balcony in the forest, we eat and wash outside, the light is exceptional, caressing the vines below. One forgets very quickly the proximity of the highway, distant noise (of waves?). A perfect place to find yourself!
Christophe and Carine have created a real little nest, the cabin is really perfect, the shower and toilets are a little extra in the concept, I really recommend, the reception is top and the information is very well detailed ????
Warm welcome, knows his region inside out
unforgettable nature stay
Exceptional experience!!! A warm welcome from Christophe and his wife, a very well equipped cabin and an enchanting setting! Very nice discovery.
A great stay thanks to Christophe and Carine !
A great welcome, a lot of kindness, generosity, authenticity and benevolence...
Christophe is really with the small care, always available, always ready to make service, he really makes everything so that we spend superb vacations! Ps: thank you for the good plans of visits! ...
And as for the cabin and the setting, they were as we had imagined, even better! A real haven of peace, ideal to recharge your batteries!
Thank you very much for everything, we will not hesitate to come back to your place if the opportunity arises! Friends travelers, go for it! You will not be disappointed!
We had a great stay!
The hut is comfortable, very well equipped, environmentally friendly and ideally located with a breathtaking view of the surrounding landscape. You will find all the necessary guides/newspapers/magazines about the Var, its activities and its famous places to make your stay lively and sporty. In the shade, you can quietly enjoy the song of the cicadas and the hammock.
Moreover, Christophe and Carine are very welcoming, friendly, interesting, discreet and very good advice hosts. They will not hesitate to guide you towards the places to visit and the events not to be missed.
I highly recommend this cabin for a peaceful stay in a fabulous setting, all for an excellent value for money.
great place! well located! quite comfortable
Christophe welcomed us very well with lots of good plans and information about the region
we will come back with pleasure
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!
Aurore and Florence
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!
Benjamin and Kristián
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.
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!
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!
Maria José R.
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.
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.
Isabelle Dominique B.
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!
