what a joy! It's living in peace, the bell tower that wakes you up .... a beautiful nature and especially very warm owners. What more can we want? if we are ever in the vicinity we will return without hesitation. a big thank you from Greta and Jean Marie
We enjoyed our stay with Valérie and her husband very much. We were warmly welcomed and had a quiet night. Everything was very clean and tidy, especially the sanitary facilities. We can only recommend the accommodation!
We had a great 10 days with Valérie and her family. Valérie has given us many, very individual excursion tips and could answer any question. She cares very much about the facility and guests. The whole family is very friendly and nice. The sanitary facilities were always clean without exception. The caravan site is large, we had space for our small caravan, a large awning and our VW bus. Unfortunately, the lake of the place was closed because of blue-green algae. We were able to switch to surrounding lakes. The trips to Nancy (about 1h 30 min by car) and especially to Strasbourg (about 1h 20 min by car) were highlights. Also the beautiful nature, with mixed forests, lush green meadows and many hiking and mountain bike trails was very nice. Valérie also organized a very nice and nice horseback ride for us on site with good horses. It's worth bringing bikes, there are some nice routes! Thank you very much dear Valérie and family, we will surely come again!!!
Valerie and her husband are charming and welcoming people and our stay went very well. Everything is arranged to allow not to miss anything. Kitchen, shower, toilet and garden at the top :)
Gamping was a new experience for us and we will definitely do it again!
Thank you for your welcome!
A great experience for this first time. We have nothing to complain about, except that the welcome was top notch, the setting charming, the cleanliness and hygiene were also there. We will come back without a doubt ! :)
VALERIE and her family are very welcoming and know their region very well. You only have to ask for a shower and toilet, they are very clean and very quiet.
We spent 5 pleasant nights.
Valerie and her family welcomed us very well, the setting is calm and relaxing. I recommend it to you.
Thanks again Valerie ????
All good, ideal setting, pleasant hosts. We recommend.
First experience of gamping very nice! Outside kitchen, independent WC and shower, everything is there, practical and very clean. Thank you for the loan of material which considerably increased our comfort and allowed us to protect ourselves from the heat. Thank you for the advices of walks, the availability and the kindness of Valerie.
A unique experience: Valerie and Xavier are very nice hosts and the land was exactly as we imagined. A place in the middle of nature, perfect for those who like walking or cycling.
A very good welcome, a host concerned about the well-being and comfort of her guests, we were delighted with our stay in this very natural setting and all the attention received from Valerie and her family.
A first camping in a home even better than we could have hoped for!
Thanks again to you, you are at the top!
We stayed 3 days at Valerie's with the camper. She immediately proposed us things to do with our children. Our daughter and her daughter became friends. We walked, bathed,... the children played well...
Thank you for your kindness, your humor and the help, of course!
It was the first time, that I spent the night in a private home. And it was really great. The place is a little paradise, and Valerie is a perfect hostess. Helpful and kind!
Thank you very much again.
It was a wonderful stay for us with you. You are very sympathetic without being intrusive. Your shower and outdoor kitchen make the garden additionally relaxing. Perfect for us. Thank you very much for your hospitality and the delicious salad :))
Best regards Anika and Christian
We had a great time at Valerie's. We highly recommend this experience!
Only happiness... Welcoming and generous family. Here corner of paradise guaranteed where everything is perfect. The walks in the region and especially the path of the lock keepers by bike or along the canal, and the warm hospitality of our hosts in a wonderful and functional place where nothing is missing! To be recommended without a doubt. We have A-DO-RE and will come back very soon. Thank you Valerie and her nice little family
Very nice hosts, very clean and nicely landscaped grounds with outdoor kitchen and shower, very recommendable!
This was our first experience with Gamping, and my girlfriend and I really enjoyed not only the beauty of WALSCHEID, but also the friendliness of the hostess Valerie.
The only "regret" we both have is that we only stayed 2 nights and thus did not have enough time for all the activities the area offers.
Wine lovers, my girlfriend and I went to MARLENHEIM to do a wine tasting. We directly found our happiness ➜ "ARTHUR METZ: Wines & Crémants of Alsace".
We were very satisfied with our stay in Walscheid. The welcome of Valerie and her family was remarkable and we hope to return to this very pleasant site.
We had an excellent stay at Valerie's and her family's place, our first experience of gamping.
The setting is beautiful, everything is very well arranged and maintained with care, Valerie is attentive to the fact that everything goes well and gave us all the useful advice for the hikes and visits around, which allowed us to discover her beautiful region. The children were happy to be surrounded by animals and to share some play time with Alicia.
We will come back with pleasure!
Hello to all, I was able to try camping in the nature with a nice family.
The advantages: good reception, presentation excursion, comfort, respect of the environment, proximity with the nature (the forest surrounds the village), general cleanliness, possibility of renting your tent or caravan, originality decoration.
I recommend this family especially if you have a small child.
Good snoring to all.
Great welcome... with cake and refreshments.
An ideal place for children, and as a bonus a great walk recommended by our hostess.
It was for us an exceptional stay in a pleasant setting, a place maintained with great taste and care by Valerie and Xavier. The personalized welcome for us and our 4-legged companions touched us a lot, our hostess always full of attentions and concerned about our well being with the help of her children. Stay to recommend and to do again for us without fail!
Thank you to all the family and a big hug from Nougatine and Jojo
We had a wonderful stay at Valerie's. The location is really pleasant and everything is arranged with great care. Valerie gave us a very warm welcome and the children were able to take advantage of the many games available, as well as being able to play with the animals. We highly recommend this address!
Valerie is a very welcoming host, who can advise you on all the nice things to do in the area. The place is beautiful. My son had the pleasure of discovering the animals and we were able to eat some delicious garden salad!
For the layout, the dry toilets and shower are spacious and very clean. In addition, the outdoor kitchen is fully equipped to allow you to be totally autonomous.
This stay was a treat!
Accompanied by our two horses we spent 2 days on Valerie's land.
Valerie being absent at our arrival, the instructions had been transmitted to her right-hand man.
Nathan, one of Valerie's children welcomed us and showed us around the owner and the facilities.
We had a lot of fun talking with the whole family and Valerie was full of little attentions towards us.
The sanitary block and kitchen are very functional and pleasant. The country decoration makes the place very warm and we feel good.
We will return with pleasure during our next visit to the region.
My friend gampeuse says to me... Come, I will make you discover a corner of paradise... I answer "I dare" !
But well, the paradise, it is difficult to imagine... And it is also difficult to tell...
Whether it is Valerie, Xavier, their garden, the summer kitchen, the village, the mountains around...
I just want to go back there...
For a first experience with a caravan (bought a week earlier) and as gampeurs, everything went well, thanks to the sensational welcome of Anaïs, who - in the previously announced absence of her parents - knew how to put us at ease, from the very first moments, and this in spite of the complicated maneuver of parking in reverse of a caravan three times too big for a start!
The small beer of welcome finished to make fall the pressure of and to give the kickoff of 3 days of relaxation, meetings, ballades, bathings, in a too nice frame.
The sanitary facilities, clean and respectful of the environment, the animals that gambol around us, the serious discussions on autonomous driving or the comparison of the educational systems in France and Germany, finish this stay, too short!
Thanks again and we hope to come back...
I liked everything so much the first time, that I came back by choice this time with my friends... conquered too!
Thank you Valerie and Xavier, it was just perfect ... A pleasure to see you again!
Gamers, if you want to meet people without artifice, open, in the sharing (all in a great setting) ... Go there without hesitation!
It was just perfect. We have felt in great hands with Valérie. Her large garden is a dream! We will be happy to come back as soon as possible
First experience of gamping for us, at Valerie's place ! And we were delighted :) Valerie and her family are simple and very welcoming people. As soon as we arrived, we could share a nice moment with them around a glass of Kefir and homemade pastries! The setting is very pleasant, the garden very spacious, there is room for everyone! The small kitchen, the shower and the dry toilets fitted out for the gampeurs are very functional and in perfect condition. The close environment invites to many walks in the Vosges nature and the real plus, the pond at 5 min walking distance from the house to refresh yourself safely ! Valerie is always available and very attentive to her guests. In short, a very good experience, we recommend without hesitation.
A wonderful stay in Alsace at Wahlscheid with Valerie and Xavier. First of all, the welcome was magnificent and warm, then the cleanliness was irreproachable. The place is very beautiful thanks to this magnificent couple who work well and take care of the satisfaction of their visitors. From the beginning we felt like at home. We had a pleasant stay with them and we wish to return. Wahlscheid is a nice village with a lot of activities to do proposed by either Valerie or Xavier, in short, they are always there to help... In short, Alsace is beautiful but it is even more beautiful at Valerie and Xavier's place in Wahlscheid... Thanks to you
Rachid and Emilie
We only spent one night at Valerie's house because we were passing through the south of France. Valerie and her husband were away for the weekend, but their daughter Anaïs welcomed us "as it should be" (Valerie's words): she showed us the garden and the pitches, the kitchen and the sanitary block (all as described) and afterwards she invited us to the terrace where we talked about a lot of things over a piece of cake and a drink. Valerie even called us to see if we were satisfied. Valerie, you can be fully reassured that your daughter is perfect in the role of host!
The description on the website is accurate, but the essence is even better expressed in the comments! 5 stars are not enough for this gamping!
A first request declined because Valerie and Xavier are successful! But in the end, the meeting could take place on another date to my great joy :-)
My choice? I fell in love when I saw the description of the place and I felt good even before being there! ... shared values, the concept, my email exchanges with Valerie ... Everything spoke to me! I did not know the existence of Walscheid but my heart dictated this place strangely ...
On the spot? Simply Extra!
A cocktail of welcome, generosity, enriching sharing! Valerie (I had less opportunity to exchange with Xavier unfortunately) is thoughtful, attentive, full of good advice, of a kindness and an infinite generosity...
It is the house of Happiness, a small corner of Paradise and Haven of Peace! I felt so good that I asked to extend my stay :-)
Thank you Valerie for your little attentions overflowing with warmth.
I lived a beautiful Adventure and life experience, without fuss, around simple things but rich in values.
The place is great, well thought out, very well equipped and super clean which does not spoil anything else.
The surroundings? Super cute, woods for beautiful hikes, a lake nearby to refresh yourself and a lot of places to visit not far away.
Thanks again to you Valerie for everything!
I really hope to see you again. My door is wide open to you if you pass by Nancy, as I told you!
Gamblers? Come with your eyes closed, you won't be disappointed!
It's a great place to recharge your batteries...
1st experience on gamping, a warm welcome, a pleasant place, everything at your disposal for your well being. Very clean. A great couple that makes you feel at ease. Very pleasantly surprised, to do it again without hesitation, we recommend them to you. Thanks again to Valerie and her husband.
From our first experience of camping in a home, it is certain, we will not forget our arrival "ventilated" by this day of heat wave and the communicative laughter of Valerie... !
But not only that ....car what a welcome ! what warmth from Valerie, Xavier and their children !
During all the stay, they were of a big kindness, generosity and availability. Incredible!
We really appreciated their dynamism and work for a high quality and ecological welcome.
We wish them good continuation and success in their projects.
Thank you for your kindness!
Denise and Catherine
Excellent reception, we will come back!

We arrived in Walscheid with 2 adults and 6 children,
at Xavier, Valerie and their children.
In this marvellous setting where you can find everything, close to nature, animals, the pond, where we could swim and go boating, etc...
As soon as we arrived, Valerie and Xavier welcomed us with a smile.
They are pleasant, warm, courageous people, they are concerned with the well being of the campers, the places and the spaces are well thought and practical. Everything is .... very clean with a rigorous follow-up. They do their utmost to ensure that we have everything we need.
They gave us their precious time to make us taste the Lorraine specialties,
They took us on several excursions and organized a visit to the goat park where we met a great man... Thank you Gabriel for what you do for Walscheid...
...and thank you to the Mayor for offering us this small refreshment during our meeting, thank you Madame le Maire, for having accompanied us to other sites. Thank you for this simplicity.
The children of Valerie and Xavier are also very pleasant and invested, Anais, Lucas, Nathan and Alicia have initiated us to traditional dances, we loved this moment of sharing and our youngest has even made the small motorcycle with Nathan. THANK YOU CHILDREN
In Walscheid, at Valerie and Xavier's, everything is ....! We find the essential there.
This place is magnificent and this family is adorable and admirable. I have trouble finding the words to describe how good it was ....
In any case, these moments of sharing and our vacations will remain a very beautiful memory for each of us. Once again, a big thank you to all this little world.

Very nice stay with Valerie. An infrastructure which does not miss anything, a very calm framework and very sympathetic hosts. To be recommended!
Valerie and Xavier's welcome was remarkable! The site is really ideal and everything is well thought out.
We had a great week. They were very welcoming, affable, and friendly!
Really perfect! Thank you
Everything was perfect at Valerie and Xavier's, the warm welcome (cakes, herbal tea ...), the availability and the fact of answering questions, advice ... The setting is also magnificent, a little corner of paradise in the countryside with a lot of comfort and calm, the lake for swimming accessible on foot.
Very good stay at Valerie and Xavier.
A warm and family welcome.
A generous family with a big heart.
Facilities available and useful (especially the fridge, the kettle, the shower etc...) a real comfort with well cared details.
A large table under the trees where everyone meets and discusses, the top. We also took advantage of a beautiful barbecue evening where we shared beautiful stories and an excellent dessert prepared by our host.
The place is ideal, a real paradise on earth, far from all the noise of the city.
Only good points and a great atmosphere.
A big thank you to Valerie and Xavier for their exceptional welcome in their beautiful garden!
We recommend this site (to consume without moderation))
The first time we come to Valerie and Xavier's house is maybe by chance, but the second time is by choice.
The welcome is always top notch, spending a few nights in the countryside in this little corner of paradise is great. Do not hesitate, try the experience : satisfaction guaranteed.
A wonderful family, which welcomes you with open arms, they have a lot of beautiful values that we unfortunately do not find anymore in our society.
We were a group of 8 people and our hosts took care to meet and get to know the whole group. We had an unforgettable time.
Thank you again for everything!
Go for it!
Super nice hosts, wonderful welcome.
The equipment is in very good condition.
We are already planning to come back.
I have not encountered hosts, but friends.
Everything that previous guests have written here is true. Valérie and Xavier have made sure that everything a camper needs is taken care of. Their own description is true in all respects.
I spent 3 nights here. Am traveling alone and got such a friendly contact with the family that I even got to hike together with them.
Valérie and Xavier both speak very good German. So it's not a problem even if you don't speak French.
It was my first gamping stay and I am so excited that it will not be the last.
Je n'ai pas trouvée des hôtes mais des amis.
Tout est vrai que les guest ont déjà écrit ici.
Valérie et Xavier ont organisés tout ce dont un campeur a besoin.
Leurs description s'applique à tous égards.
J'etais ici pour 3 nuits. Je voyage seule et ils m'ont même pris pour des promenades.
Valérie et Xavier parlent bien Allemand. C'est pour ca qu'il n'y aura pas des problemes si on ne parle pas Francais.
C'etait mon premier réservation avec gamping.com et je suis tellement heureuse que ce ne va pas être le dernier fois.
I didn't find hosts but friends.
All the things written here by former guest are right.
Valérie and Xavier organized all that a camper needs. Their own description applies in all points.
I stayed for 3 nights, traveling alone. They invited me to do some walks together with them.
Valérie and Xavier speak German quite well.
This was my first stay with gamping.com and I'm so lucky that this will not be the last.
Paradise exists, come to Valerie's house!
I had an excellent stay at Valerie's.
Beyond the very well appointed place and the great hosts it is the whole village that strives to make your stay unforgettable.
The other comments detail the experience much better than I will, highly recommended!
