The village is 7 km away by car or 30 minutes on foot by the path.
You will find all the conveniences: trade, bank, post office, station...
The access is a bit complicated, you have to be a bit adventurous: 6 km of unpaved track accessible to all vehicles from the village and 1 km of steep track to reach the house.
For the last part, it is better to have a high car or a small 4*4.
Otherwise, we propose to transport your equipment to and from the house (if we are available).

The setting

Unobstructed view on the mountain.
Two hectares of land, on flat grassy terraces surrounded by Scots pine.
Quiet, no houses on the horizon.
Birds, roe deer and stags if discretion...

The campers will be able to install themselves wherever they want, although two or three places are more suitable for this.
In particular, on the board where the trampoline and the kitchen shed are located.
Pitches are available under the pine trees in the shade.

Land & setting
  • Thanks to Gaelle and Frédéric for welcoming us to their wonderful place, full of charm and facing the mountains. We felt great :)

  • The weather was not in our favor...nevertheless we had a very good reception in this grandiose site! It's exactly what we were looking for!
    Moreover, Fred helped us well for the continuation of our road trip???? (information on the works....). It is also a person who loves the nature and his region which makes share easily...
    For the breakfast, local products of excellent qualities!
    We plan to return for a second road trip (in May/June) to visit this magnificent valley...
    Thank you for everything, don't change anything .... it's perfect !

  • Great experience in the middle of nature! Breathtaking landscapes... A beautiful moment of escape and rest. Fred and Gaëlle are very accommodating, friendly and welcoming! A pleasant stay that I highly recommend to other campers! :)

  • A great experience for nature lovers. The place is very well located, the view is superb. The land is perfect for pitching a tent and the equipment available makes life easier. In addition and above all, the welcome was very friendly. Gaëlle and her husband know the mountains and the region very well and were able to advise us very well. A big thank you and a place we highly recommend.

  • If you need to find calm, wide open spaces, great views this is the place to be! After a short hour's climb from the Tende train station, we find ourselves cut off from the world, just a stone's throw from magnificent hiking routes that Gaëlle and Frédéric will be able to recommend to you! Thanks again for this perfect stay!

  • A haven of peace that must be earned. But once up there, we forget all our worries. Gaëlle and her family received us with a lot of naturalness! I recommend it!

  • A big thank you to Gaëlle, Fred and their children! We spent a stay as we like, only the mountain and us. The children were the kings of the world, free and autonomous. Nothing better to recharge your batteries.

  • Great place for those who like peace and quiet. Great view. Everything is available as described.
    Warm welcome. Lots of interesting things to do in the area.

  • Gaelle and her children gave us a warm welcome to a fantastic site in the heart of the mountains with a perfect view and silence. Gaelle lent us hiking books and gave us all the necessary information. The children made us laugh. A magical stay with very nice hosts.

  • Perfect stay at Gaëlle and Frédéric's place, on all levels: very spacious ground, magnificent panorama, multiple activities, especially for the children. And above all, great welcome from the whole family. We will come back with great pleasure, thank you Gaëlle, Loane, Titouan, Thibault & Frédéric !

  • What a beautiful place! With a very nice welcome for children and adults. The explanations are very precise to find the place. And Fred and Gaëlle are not stingy with their time to explain you the beautiful ballads to make in the sector. You can't see everything on the picture but there is also a cabin to do your cooking and washing up with everything you need, a shower and dry toilets... To discover absolutely but... not all at once please, we want to come back !

  • We were wonderfully welcomed by Gaelle, Fred being absent during our stay.
    It seemed to us to spend vacations at friends', so much everything is thought so that we feel at ease.
    The place is very quiet, we are in the middle of the mountains! but the comfort is there, from the wooden house to cook, very nicely furnished and equipped, to the solar shower, very hot at the end of the afternoon, better than a real one, in summer!
    Only drawback for me, the track to reach this paradise, which made me panic a little at the beginning, but one gets used to it. My 26 year old son drove afterwards and was not impressed at all! Our old Renault Scénic has done well!
    A big thank you to Gaelle and her family for this enchanted interlude
    Mireille and Rudy

  • A beautiful and quiet place, in the middle of the mountains and meeting your first needs (kitchen, shower, toilet, + tent / sleeping bag in my case ...) as well as very welcoming people and caring for you and your stay is going well. I recommend without hesitation !

  • A small corner of paradise, secluded and perched on the heights of Tende. Gaëlle and Fred gave me a great welcome! They know the nature and the mountains around, and we shared a beautiful evening with their little ones.
    No doubt that I will return to say hello to them on occasion, and remake the world with them!
    Notice to bikers: access by trail recommended. This piece of nature is worth it ;-P
