  • Very good stay... Muriel and José are very welcoming and always take care of our comfort. The proposed services are very appreciated...
    Thank you for these 3 pleasant days.

  • Excellent stay at Murielle and José. The welcome is warm and the discussions very enriching.
    Good continuation to both of you and thank you again for the quality of your welcome!

  • Very pleasant stay, very calm, in the middle of fields and birds. Muriel and José are great hosts with whom we can exchange on many subjects and who give good information on the activities of the region, with a lot of kindness. Without counting the "English" breakfast with products of the region and the house. A delight. Many material aids are available to the campers (a stove to prepare meals, a place to shelter in case of rain.). A place to be warmly recommended.

  • A very nice 2 days stage. A very nice and pleasant garden. Muriel and José are adorable and very attentive to the campers. A very friendly and enriching moment. Without forgetting the royal breakfast! Thank you for everything.

  • I have already written some comments, but obviously I made a mistake. They did not appear. Therefore, I'll try again. For my husband and I it was the first time we did Gamping. During our trip through France in June, we had 5 stops, each time at a different gamping site, each with very welcoming hosts and really nice campgrounds. By the way, Muriel and José are two lovely people. We could talk a lot with both of them. Their site is beautiful, with an exquisite garden. There is also an open air kitchen with everything you need. We hope to return to Muriel and José. Thank you both for everything

  • Gamping at Muriel and José's place is a haven of peace, calm, nature and a warm, devoted and thoughtful welcome! We had the impression to arrive at friends happy to live there and to spend a moment with us :-) Thank you for your welcome and your kindness!

  • A wonderful meeting with Muriel and José with whom we quickly became friends. They live in a beautiful region, have a large flowered ground to welcome in the conviviality and the simplicity. They listen to us and give us advice on how to visit.
    We will come back for the region but also to see Muriel and José again.

  • We were very well received by Muriel and José. The setting is beautiful and very relaxing, a place where we will return with pleasure.

  • We had an excellent stay with our family in a quiet place.
    We were warmly welcomed by Muriel and José who did everything to make our stay very pleasant.

    Muriel and José go out of their way to make the stay of their guests as easy as possible in a family atmosphere.
    We recommend this place without restriction.

  • Great stay for us!

    A quiet, peaceful and practical place to pitch your tent!

    But it's much more than that, Muriel and José are so warm, human and available that coming here is also a human encounter.

    Thanks to you !

    Quentin and Héloïse.

  • We stayed just one night when we returned from vacation, but the welcome was very pleasant, Muriel and José know how to receive.
    If you don't know the area, they will be able to guide you without any problem on the sites to visit.
    They are also passionate about motorcycles, so motorcycle friends, you can visit them, you will not be disappointed!
    A little extra in the morning before leaving, the coffee offered around a last discussion and even some zucchinis from the garden!
    And all this in a wonderful setting in the countryside!
    Thanks to Muriel and José for this welcome, if I have the opportunity to come back to the region, I will gladly stop by!

  • Great hosts! Very open. We had dinner together. Muriel showed us her vegetable garden and gave us zucchini.

    The children loved the garden and the chickens.

    Copious breakfast. Very large location.

    Must stop!!!

  • We had a wonderful stay at muriel and josé.
    our hosts welcomed us with warmth and generosity and, what does not take anything away, the site is absolutely magnificent!

    We will be back with pleasure.

    Caroline and François

  • Superb night, great welcome, Muriel and José are superb hosts, thank you.

  • Thank you very much to the hosts for this wonderful evening spent in their "domain"! Muriel and José are without a doubt the grandparents that everyone would like to have!

    The ground is vast, we have a beautiful sight on the farm and on the garden, two companions with 4 legs nice the one like the other!

    As soon as we arrived the current is immediately passed, we were offered to drink and we discussed for a long time!

    Thanks again to you!

  • Excellent night spent with our hosts. Warm welcome, very beautiful panorama.
    If you are looking for a friendly place, not too expensive, and with hosts of a kindness, passionate about motorcycles and adventurers, you can go there with your eyes closed.
    So, we will go back there in 1 week when we come back from our vacations.

  • It was my first experience of camping and gamping so I arrived with a lot of apprehension but the welcome of Muriel and José and the setting finished convincing me it was a very pleasant stay, my hosts attentionnes, friendly Thank you Muriel and José

  • More than a meeting, a budding friendship. A lovely couple, human, joyful and benevolent.
    They even went so far as to maintain the barbecue, following my late arrival on the scene.
    And despite everything, they didn't hesitate for a second to offer me a hot coffee and a piece of home-made pie.

    I set up my tent in the night, with the help of José. Great! The night passed, I got up with the sun.
    The setting is sublime, and the view superb. A beautiful weather finished the picture.

    The breakfast is copious (I did not manage to finish), between local products, home-made jams, sweet, salty...

    Muriel and José showed me around the place, and their installation. They have a lot of stories to tell, and you can feel that they are above all people who like to share. I even had a hard time leaving in time because our discussions since my arrival were so full of joy and sharing.

    Cherry on the cake, it's a couple of bikers, and special mention! Full of motorcycle history, advice for visits in the region, a custom made workshop to repair your bike if you need it, and the possibility to park your bike in a closed garage. What more could you ask for?

    Personally, I made a video of it, to advise all my biker friends this Gamping stop, which is much more than an accommodation, but a family stop. I would come back with great pleasure.

    I strongly recommend it.

  • Nous nous sommes sentis très bien accueillis chez Muriel et José ! L' environnement est comme le paradis et les hôtes feront tout pour vous réconforter . Muriel nous a même fait salat hors de son propre jardin et nous a invités pour le dîner. L' Auvergne est un lieu passionnant à passé vos vacances . Nous vous remercions de nous avoir ! Cordialement , Otto et Rosemint

    We felt very welcome at Muriel and José's place! The surrounding is like paradise and the hosts will do anything to comfort you. Muriel has even made us salat out of her own garden and invited us for dinner. The Auvergne is an exciting place to spent your holidays. We thank you very much for having us! Kind regards, Otto and Rosemint
