A place to live with an ecological vocation, in the peaceful valley of the Beaume, in the Cevennes of Ardèche.
A small paradise of nature to share with you, on the grounds of our old farm, feet in the water.

The setting

A 10 hectare plot of land crossed by two abundant rivers, inhabited by an old stone building from the XVIIIth century as no one does anymore.
This place with its omnipresent nature still amazes us every day, the dream of a lifetime.

The spots

There is something for everyone, by the river, under the cherry trees or in the forest, close to the common areas or isolated and intimate.
For more comfort, we can also accommodate you in our unusual hut on the river bank.

The sanitary facilities

Independent sanitary facilities, entirely built with recycled materials, are available in the camping area.
The toilets are dry and the shower with hot water.

The amenities

A barbecue and a table are available.
A kitchenette with hotplates and a fridge is available.

The activities

Of course, there is the river.
And then, many hikes starting from the farm, towards the Cevennes valleys or the Tanargue massif.
The valley of the Beaume is full of places, each more beautiful than the other.
You can also visit the fortified town of Largentière, the Chauvet cave or the Pont de l'Arc if you like the world and canoeing.
A horse riding center is located a few kilometers away.
We particularly recommend the Beaumont market at 5pm in the summer: regional products and breathtaking views.
In the same way, the market of Laboule ends with evening meals/concerts.

Other things

In addition to the notions of sharing, tolerance and freedom that we wish to convey, this project also has a slightly militant side, and wishes to distance itself from the omnipresence of money in our society.
Through this project, we hope to give back to man his place in nature, in a context of freedom and respect of others, at a time when these are drastically reduced by politics or religion.
Among other things, we have decided that the practice of naturism would be free, without being obligatory.


This ecological place advocates freedom and "living well together".
In this sense, we thank you for not leaving any waste, respecting the calm of the place and the other campers.

Also, since naturism is free, we ask everyone, dressed or not, to be open-minded and respect the choice of each one.


Tent ready

Tent 3 places, free, if available.
It's just a temporary solution, it does its job, nothing more.
Hut at the water's edge, 50€ contact us.

Land & setting
  • A beautiful meeting with beautiful people and a beautiful ecological project.
    A small corner of paradise for nature lovers.
    Thanks to Yannick and his friends for the welcome

  • Yannick is a very friendly and helpful host. The communication beforehand was smooth and the welcome was warm. He has created a beautiful place with total tranquility and absolute minimalism. To relax perfect. A small paradise. We will definitely come again.

  • Very nice place with river nearby. To come with a truck equipped because toilet and shower impracticable. No water except a spring. No electricity. No wifi. Nice gite

  • 3 weeks spent at Yannick's, a paradise for people who know how to stay simple and open. A hell for the precious and the closed people. Beautiful land, tranquility, resourcing, beautiful encounters. Thank you Yannick for making this possible.

  • Nice location at 2 steps from the river. Corner of nature lost between Valgorge and Joyeuse, special mention for the family restaurant in Valgorge. Nice values where everyone is very free. Little privacy on the other hand. 1 toilet and 1 shower for the whole campsite, that's just about right. It's a pity that the weather was not good.
    The Ardèche is tip top!

  • Our stay at Yannick's is a great memory! Thank you for simply sharing this beautiful place. Warm and benevolent atmosphere between the campers. Swimming in the river is a real pleasure ! See you soon !

  • We were delighted to spend a night in this beautiful setting.
    Immersed in the middle of the mountains, surrounded by nature.
    The cease passing below, it is really incredible. We loved getting up and swimming in the water.
    We will come back with great pleasure!

  • Very nice place, quiet - very well located, nice values. Attention: no drinking water if you don't want to drink from the source.

  • Superbe!
    Thank you for sharing this place!

  • Great meetings, a beautiful and wild place that I will not forget.
    I came with my two children, 11 and 2 and a half. The land is wild and we choose our location.
    our location. I had the chance to be welcomed by Sophie, an exceptional woman for this magical place, and Yannick, our super nice and natural host.
    Thank you to him for this beautiful, magical and natural place.

  • Our stay at Yannick's was idyllic, we will surely come back because we felt privileged to stay in Laboule at the edge of Labeaume. In the middle of the season we enjoyed the calm of the place as much as the conviviality with the other campers. It seems that the people who write obnoxious comments about the place would like to reserve this paradise for themselves by dissuading others from going there...;) Thank you Yannick for sharing this exceptional corner of nature!

  • Very good stay at Yannick's, the place is as it was presented : in the middle of nature, wild, quiet, magnificent river ... the comfort is, of course, limited (with all the same hot shower, outside kitchen with gas, dry toilets), but it's exactly what we were looking for. It's up to each one to set up his camp as he wishes and to enjoy the area. Thank you!

  • Bucolic setting, total disconnection from the campsites ☆☆☆☆. It all depends on what we are looking for but for us it was perfect.
    We will come back if we pass in the region.

  • I had read the "negative" comments, telling myself that for a week, "it would be ok".
    So yes, the place is beautiful, although absolutely inaccessible by car, you have to know that you have to walk a lot (I arrived with a sprain...gloups the 12 minutes to get water), but it's certain, our goal was to be in the middle of nature, it's successful :)
    However, like many I agree that "this is not the right owner". The welcome was lukewarm, even cool, the minimum union as we say. Obviously, it is understandable when you receive not one or two people, but more than thirty on the place.
    Yes, only one shower and one toilet for all of us.

    And that's without counting on.... The management of the global atmosphere, the social link, the dynamics... You know, when you feel that "it's tense", that there is something "not right".
    We should have left before being confronted with this last night which will remain marked as one of the worst of my life. Women screaming from midnight to 2am "get the fuck out, asshole, get off me!", men yelling at women to shut the fuck up, dogs barking, a woman coming to plead that "this has to stop for her children"... I didn't go down to see what was going on, trying to protect my offspring from this nightmare.
    Drunk people, on substances, urine all over the path.
    A total incoherence with the dogs : the dog of Yannick, which is supposed to be so nice, but which growls and barks at the children, in freedom while ours must be on a leash...
    In short, we ran away and found a heavenly and respectful place.
    You will certainly find better elsewhere!

  • Very happy to have discovered this eco-camp! Good welcome, very quiet, relaxing place and the possibility to swim nearby.

  • Very beautiful frame. One is in full nature it is splendid!

  • Stay canceled at the last moment due to family death, I sent a text to Yannick to prevent without response ... ☹️

  • We didn't get a welcome from Yannick, who was probably busy, but the other campers knew how to guide us. And in the end the setting was magical, a sublime river runs through the campsite, the campers are welcoming, and there is everything you need to have a good stay.

  • Great place ! I imagine that Yannick would need a little help from woofers to improve the place, but a small corner of paradise in Ardeche far from the crowds of tourists and the river is just beautiful to bask naked in the sun and swim.
    Only small downside, I found that the "naked" naturism was little practiced, which did not prevent me from enjoying the place in the simplest way.

  • We had a great stay in our tent at Yannick's place! The site is a hidden treasure and truly off the grid. We could chose from a variety of spots in the woods for our tent. Surely the best part is the location right next to a fresh, cool mountain river. Everybody there was really nice and you could feel the special vibe about the place.

  • Disastrous experience. We didn't even settle in because the place was so lacking in seriousness and 'especially' in hygiene. The parking lot was completely crazy and almost inaccessible, the reception was non-existent, the pitches were random in a kind of maquis, the cleanliness and hygiene of the sanitary facilities were below par (in the Covid period!!!), in short, it was a return to the "prehistoric" age under the pretext of ecology. We are ecologists, my wife and I, but there, !!!!
    So we went to camp elsewhere, after having warned the owner by message because "subscriber absent"!

  • Magical place <3

  • We thank Yannick's welcome
    of Yannick for this preserved place.
    Friend naturist this magic place, if it is part of it, is one!
    Unstable balance but revealing of emotion when once posed on the terrace bordering this flow of energy ressourçant reconnects us with the essence of the life.
    At the edge of Labeaume time stops, the senses awaken,...
    The broom flowered path leads you to the rudimentary conveniences, which are quite sufficient, with a hot shower and a small dishwashing area.
    We look forward to your return.
    Think of updating the information (no goat cheese on the spot)

  • Well thought out eco-site, very close to nature. Very beautiful river, easy to access and protected from the outside world. The pluses : home-made organic jams and products from the organic garden are excellent. Campsite close to the Ferme au Château (goat farm and chestnut products). Very friendly atmosphere throughout our stay.

  • A stay that was complicated because of the two stormy nights we had, but apart from that, everyone respects each other's privacy with kindness, and I think that calm is the key word in this peaceful place!

  • I prolonged my stay because I felt really well in this place I would have stayed for a long time

  • Beautiful place with lots of great people, I had a wonderful time

  • Wonderful stay, we will come back!

  • Very pleasant moment in osmosis with the nature, to do again.

  • We had booked for 4 nights and only stayed a few hours. We are in motorhome and this site is not adapted for it. We found ourselves practically on the parking lot, with barely enough room to put a relax. If we had wanted to be on a parking lot we would have gone to a motorhome area (especially since we could hear a lot of traffic at this location).
    The reception is good, I think that in tent it must be nice, we must be able to find a place further from the road.
    Let us add that the dog of the owner in freedom (whereas we must attach ours) stuck us all the time (impossible to walk our cat).
    It is noted that we can use the electricity but it can connect only one CC at the time, we had to wait that the other one leaves.
    I'm a little skeptical about the sanitary facilities. 1 shower, 1 toilet, 1 sink, the fridge full to the brim with lots of ice everywhere.
    Too bad, the bathing in the Baume was nice.
    Too bad also for my 46€... Yannick told me he would reimburse me if he found a replacement (we were already replacing someone), but I have no news.
    So if Yanick wants to welcome CC's he should make some adjustments.

  • A magnificent setting! We were able to enjoy the coolness of the river and its sublime landscapes...a luxury during this early August heat wave!
    Thank you for sharing this place!

  • Very disappointed!!! The setting is beautiful and that's it.
    My gamping experiences were very enriching because I always had a lot of sharing with the different hosts. Discussions aperitifs meals see walks ect....
    The dialogue is non-existent. Just qq words to say that everything is written on the board. We asked for the famous ways of stroll at the beginning of the house one indicated us the map on the board of information.
    Besides the river there is nothing to do without taking the car for a while !!!! Very ecological. According to the description we thought we wouldn't have to use the car, but it turned out to be just the opposite because there are no footpaths from the site as indicated in the advert.
    The water is not drinkable. It has a spring water but without filter you will also drink a lot of earth...
    In the end it is not a piece of garden in the inhabitant's house but a real camping with a lot of people.
    Price level is correct but the owner will not tell you that there are wheelbarrows available because the tent sites are not accessible by car. The water is not drinkable.
    Dogs must be on a leash, which is understandable, but his is not there and comes to bother the others who are on a leash when it is not the owner's friends
    We pick up the droppings the same way, which I find quite normal but his dog Oscar puts his droppings in your place nobody comes to pick up.
    Chickens and roosters that wander around and come to eat on your table or enter the tent ....
    Other people have told me that they stole the meal from the table. They even left before...
    The chickens are hanging out in the sink of dishes, where we cook .... and of course the droppings are everywhere on the paths but also on the pitches so nice to walk barefoot.
    In short, a magnificent place that is not in the right hands.
    They talk about respect for the nudists but we had the feeling to be just there to give money. The animals in freedom which come at all hours to disturb you it is not respect but when one sees that places are available but prohibited whereas the carpark is not arranged and complete, it is not respect either. Either the parking lot must be fitted out or fewer campers must be taken! Putting dry toilets next to the shower when they are simple wooden separations is not respecting the campers either.
    In short, even if the prices are rather low, but at the same time there is not much to do, it's still a very impersonal cash factory in an idyllic setting !!!!
    It's a real shame but I think this place has no place in the concept of camping at home!
    I just wanted to warn the next ones because the owner will never question himself. Even if several people left before the end of their stay.
    So great setting but plan the hike with car to go to the start, drinking water, backpacks rather than suitcases is better to walk!

  • Very natural! Beautiful setting. Freshness of the forest and the river. Nice project. Not much to do in the area without taking the car. Some very good local producers of dairy products, chestnuts, ice cream, vegetables, etc: very nice market in Laboule and grocery store of local producers not far from the camp. Nice meetings with local artists. River and rest. Yannick very nice. Oscar and his slime bubbles too!

  • A splendid place where you can enjoy a lot of freedom, including nudity in the nature. A place that is built around the respect of the environment, with voluntary simplicity, frugality.
    Happiness to be only there!

  • The place is beautiful, Yannick is adorable and accommodating.

    We found it a pity that some occupants did not respect the spirit and the cleanliness of the place.

    Long life to this place which is in its early stages... promising! ????
    We have good memories of our stay at Yannick's and had a great time. We would come back with pleasure.

  • A great little corner of freedom in Ardeche. Camping in the woods, river below, beautiful landscapes... everything for an ideal stay.

  • After a complicated arrival our site was occupied. Everything was arranged, the setting, the welcome, the other campers, everything was perfect. The shower is always hot and the access to the river very easy. We had a wonderful and unforgettable vacation with our children.

  • Simple experience and close to nature, we were so good ! Thank you Yannick for this place where letting go brings a real rest !

  • The advertisement specifies independent toilets in addition to the dry toilets but it is not the case. Moreover, there is only one "ecological" toilet for the whole campsite, so it fills up quickly and the sawdust bin empties just as quickly. Fortunately we had a good cooler because the state of the fridge did not inspire confidence. The good side : the setting is pleasant, the people we met were very nice, which allowed us to have a good time.
    - Parking : very limited, we left with paint from another car (and we had to walk a long way from our car to our tent). And we were "argued" by the owner at the time of departure for having parked on "its places" to facilitate the loading already far from the tents.
    - Electricity : present at the only sink of the campsite. You have to be confident to leave your phone on charge.
    - Wifi : the campsite is very large, so no wifi but we didn't come for that.
    Conclusion : we will be much more careful for the next choice of camping in the inhabitant.

  • Thank you Yannick for your welcome by sharing with the campers and woofers the splendid place where you live. I had a rejuvenating stay, friendly and intimate at the same time: according to the wish of each one, one can be with oneself just as it is possible to go and meet the others. Simplicity, freedom, benevolence, respect and tolerance, all together: humans of all generations, clothed, naked or half-naked, animals, nature, elements... The two rivers are alive and beautiful. Great to swim, to recharge, and to explore. A tip: bring jellyfish type shoes to walk on the pebbles in the water

  • Thank you Yannick for your welcome in this beautiful place!

  • The Beaume is magical for moments of swimming in all simplicity and almost alone. The place is calm and conducive to relaxation.
    Be careful though, it is a paradise for campers, but there are very few places for converted vehicles and caravans.
    We will come back for sure.

  • Great stay,
    Yannick welcomed us very well, the place is great and there is a restful calm, moreover the respect and tolerance of everyone is a real asset!

  • The place is nice, the reception is nice. For us, it was not convenient because the tent could not be placed close enough to the river and my children were a little embarrassed by naturism. Then, we looked for someone to talk about it and we didn't find. Finally we left, we found another camping (less nice but better for the children) towards the evening. The contact afterwards by phone was very disappointing! We paid in advance 160 euros for 5 days and we stayed 5 minutes. Yannick didn't want to pay back, or share. We were lost.

  • Magnificent place of quietness, of simple beauty. Exactly what we were looking for.
    Just as magnificent hike ("le tour de Laboule") winding through springs and river, through chestnut groves and pretty little hamlets ....

  • We had a wonderful stay, in a magnificent setting with beautiful people!
    The happiest of us was probably my little 2 year old nephew who was amazed by so much beauty!

  • Very nice setting. A return to nature very pleasant. Yannick very nice. Location in the woods rustic. Top thanks again

  • A beautiful river! Thank you!

  • Hello, we had a pleasant stay at Yannick's. It's a quiet and very charming place with the Beaume river flowing next to the pitches.
    However we noticed some inconveniences!

    1:parking very small with a lot of rocks I damaged my car in two places so low and bulky car beware.

    2: we had been warned of the practice of naturism but we were also told that it was discreet, except from the acceuil it is a naked man (in this case Yannick) who receives my wife with the children ...

    3:You will choose yourselves the sites according to what will remain at the time of your arrival, of the blow certain large sites is found with small tents and vice versa we had with chance our site was sufficiently large shaded with little opposite, others had less of it... bad organization on this side there! moreover accompanied the new arrivals to show them the places would not be a luxury.

    Apart from these different points, the setting is magnificent and the photos are not at all misleading and everyone is very nice, no theft, to go to this place is to accept a simple philosophy that we more, certte naturism it is necessary to get used to it! but our stay is still very well spent

  • A wonderful stay at Yannick's! The place is sublime, very welcoming and the surroundings are beautiful! I recommend 1000 times and hope to come back soon!
