Land & setting
  • An excellent stay in a magnificent natural setting and very well equipped. A very welcoming host, smiling and with the small care for his campers. The access is
    somewhat rock' n roll but the game is really worth the candle!

  • Nothing more to add to the previous comments, Chris is really at the top, the setting is great for those looking for a nice place to disconnect the time of a stay.

  • Chris is a wonderful person that I had the chance to meet. I would recommend this beautiful area to anyone who is interested in nature. The path is a bit difficult to access but nothing insurmountable. Bravo for the transformation of this forest. I look forward to coming back one day.

  • Great stop with my daughter on our trip to Spain! Chris is very welcoming and open and his way of life and to discover !
    I regret to have spent only one night on the land. The pool is great especially in summer ! The shower and the toilets are very correct, and the frame is magnificent with a perfect view on the Canigou !
    I recommend without hesitation !
    Thanks to Chris, Bernard and Jacqueline for the welcome !

  • Everything was perfect! Family of 2 adults and 2 children for 2 nights.
    Chris is very welcoming and shared with us his journey with passion! Small bonus for sharing a natural slide spot in the mountain!
    A total change of scenery in its natural setting! A big thank you !

  • Beautiful place with a golden host!!! <3

  • Great stay in a tent at the foot of the Canigou. Excellent welcome from the host Chris who does everything possible to make your stay a success. Many thanks to him.
    Very well maintained ground, shower/toilet/sink area very practical and clean. A special mention to the stone pool with view on the mountains.
    Ideal location for hiking or swimming in the river.
    We highly recommend staying at Chris' house.

  • 3 days at the top with Chris! Everything was perfect and like on the pictures!
    Quiet (we were alone in addition), location always in the shade, Chris is super nice, attentive and welcoming.
    I really recommend it !

    Thanks again Chris!

  • Chris is adorable. We were very well received in his little corner of paradise. Chris is helpful, talkative but also knows how to remain discreet.
    His little paradise has all the amenities.
    I highly recommend it.
    Dirt road to get there beware of cars too low.

  • This land is worth a visit! And the meeting with its owner too, who willingly shares his original experience!
    Access by the track (OK for our Renault Trafic van), a vast plot in the forest with private access to the sanitary facilities and the swimming pool (if no 2nd team of campers on the plot).
    Nice view on the mountains!
    Activities for children at the lake of Vinça near the field.

  • Great experience at Chris' place ! The pitches reserved for his guests are spacious and very well equipped (picnic table, dry toilets, shower, dishwasher...) Big plus for the swimming pool and the view on the Canigou ! Thank you for Chris for the welcome.

  • Great welcome from Chris, really nice. Warm and full of good advice. Thanks to you for your kindness

  • Topissime! Go to the life change meeting
    Thanks Chris

  • It was a great vacation! The place, in the middle of nature, is enchanting... the Roman bath is really fresh and our host, Chris, is a connoisseur of good places who is not without generous advice! We will come back there !

  • A stay in an enchanting setting, welcomed by a benevolent, smiling, warm and playful host! Here it is not only an oak grove where you can pitch your tent, it is a quiet place that has been shaped over time, a titanic work so that each corner makes you want to settle there. We can see the Canigou, the fields of olive trees and peach trees. But going to Chris' place is more than that... we laughed a lot, shared, tasted the fruits and vegetables of his friend Michel... His wine has a taste of return and his advice is always wise and appreciated to discover this beautiful region! A big thank you also to Aurélie for her welcome and her kindness, with her little Léo. And this opinion would not be objective if we forget Jacqueline, Bernard "Covaïde" ;) and Elios the morfale.
    We will certainly come back ....

  • We spent a night at Chris's house and after a while of searching given my sense of direction we finally arrived. I have never seen such a nice and peaceful place where for a moment we forgot the hustle and bustle of life to enjoy a corner of paradise... where Chris the owner welcomed us in the simplest but warmest way possible. Everything was perfect and thanks again to Chris for this place, his hospitality, his kindness and his contact with people who pass by. Everything was perfect and I hope to come back soon for a longer stay.

  • A magical experience, alone in the world in the middle of nature, back to the source and fullness guaranteed.
    Chris and Aurélie are great hosts, authentic and simple as we like. A stay of a natural simplicity. Thank you to both of them for not changing anything except the improvement of the small path. A cgose is on we will return without hesitating the eyes close! Thank you thank you thank youiiii

  • Super site, vacations in the nature as we like them!
    A beautiful meeting, thanks Chris.

  • Great welcome and moments of sharing with Chris who was very attentive to our needs. The site is large and shaded; it offers in some places a magnificent view of the Canigou. We highly recommend it.

  • What a great meeting! The site is superb for those who want to be nestled in nature, in the quiet. It is also a great place to meet people. Chris did a great job to make this place magical and it's a success.
    A big thank you to Chris, Aurélie, Léo and of course the inevitable Jacqueline.
    We will come back for sure!

  • A great stay at Chris's place : the ground is nice and shaded, the pool is ideal to cool down, the place is quiet and very well located. Chris is very welcoming and gave us a lot of good addresses in the area. We can't wait to go back!

  • Chris is a welcoming and super available host, thanks to him for this stay!
    Great spot to pitch a tent in the middle of the mountains accessible by a dirt road

  • But Waow!!! What a beautiful place! Great job on Chris' part for making it magical! What more can I say... I had a great stay there, and will definitely go back as soon as possible! Thanks to Chris, Jaqueline (the dog), the cat who is more than adorable and, everyone who fills this fabulous place with good energy. Warm welcome ! Thanks again for this pleasant discovery ! See you soon !

  • Great place! Great meeting with Chris. The kids loved the place and the animals. Very nice area. Very good spot to radiate. I recommend it!

  • We spent a very peaceful stay in love. What could be better than a large plot of land at the foot of the mountains, a pool and the sound of crickets? Also, Chris is a very warm and accommodating person. If you are a fan of autonomy and alternative lifestyles, this place will inspire you :)

  • Plijus-tre e oa!!
    We had a pleasant stay, Christophe is very welcoming and accommodating, with a strong potential for Breton palets!
    Trugarez vras hag ar wech all!

  • We had a fantastic week here. Nice quiet location with everything you need.
    Chris is a very friendly person with whom we were always able to have a pleasant conversation. He gave us many tips and also invited us to a wine tasting.
    Very sweet animals, the cat is a pleasant talker.
    Thanks for the great stay Chris, hope to see you again soon!
    Sven and Bieke

  • Great stay dear Chris!
    Warm welcome and very good advice to discover the area.
    Tranquility and simplicity guaranteed!

  • Super stay in a magnificent setting with a really adorable host who takes care of his campers, a great meeting, really!

  • Great little stay in the middle of the forest! With a top notch pool. Chris very nice. To be recommended.

  • All the previous comments are very complimentary. So I will add a layer to tell you that the place is great and that Chris is really a beautiful person with a big heart who will do his best to welcome you. A big thank you to him. I will come back with great pleasure

  • What happiness at Chris, you must go there !!!!!

  • You won't regret your stay at Chris's, the welcome is warm, friendly, human and very enriching. The place is equipped with all the modern comforts and you will appreciate the immersion in the Mediterranean maquis in a setting and an atmosphere that will leave you with unforgettable memories. Thank you very much Chris, see you next time!

  • I spent two superb days in Vinça, rich in discoveries where I was very happy to meet Christophe. He has done a great job in making this site welcoming.
    I recommend to travelers the river just below the field which is very nice to refresh and splash around in.
    Thanks again Chris!

  • What happiness! Christophe is super friendly and the place is beautiful, we will come back, 100% recommended!

  • Great stay, it was perfect. Thank you both for the welcome. See you soon

  • Be careful, we want to inform the community that it is very risky to go to Chris' place, first of all because you can be welcomed terribly well, with precise information to find the ground, a warm, sincere welcome, and followed by a small aperitif and/or a big hardy fire, if everyone is available. The next day, with a lot of bad luck, we can wake up in front of the imposing Canigou, stroke the dangerously adorable Jacqueline, alias "the perfect dog", then go to refresh ourselves in the river (10mn walk) or in the swimming pool, lulled by the song of the cicadas, and finally let ourselves be guided on the ground to discover Chris' cultures or explore the really ugly surroundings. It is then that the weakest of us could be tempted to stay a few more days. A very big thank you to Chris and Aurélie, and their pets, for this stay full of smiles and authenticity, I don't recommend to anyone else but my friends and family :-)

  • A great discovery and a great meeting with Chris.????
    Very atypical place, quiet, wooded and shady.
    Chris is a very welcoming person, very natural and is delighted to share his story. ????
    We will come back with great pleasure, especially since there is currently work going on to make the place even more beautiful. ????
    For information we went there with a L2 H1 traffic and it is the maximum size to access the camp...????

  • Thank you Christophe for the welcome. It is exactly what we were looking for. The place is super nice, disconnected and inspiring just like Christophe who shared with us his place and his way of life.

    I recommend it 100%.

  • Maximum score because I could not come

  • Christophe received us like his family, it was really an incredible moment.
    His simplicity and kindness are an example and it is with warmth that we recommend you to go there.
    Our children, just as well received, loved the place and all its surprises.
    Thank you Christophe for such a nice moment and good continuation to you!

  • The stay with Christophe went extremely well! A very well arranged ground in a top atmosphere! Chris is a remarkable host with whom we can really exchange and that makes good ! Think of taking mosquito repellent and do not hesitate to come to spend good time here ;) We will come back as soon as possible.

  • Top stay! With Christophe it's simple, natural, warm, generous.
    We feel good with him and at home, in a charming space, in the heart of the beautiful nature where everything is thought to respect it.
    Christophe is in his element, he knows his region and he is always ready to communicate, his enthusiasm above all and the good plans to crown it all.

  • A superb first experience with Christophe. Magnificent view on the Canigou, the river at 10 minutes, the comfortable equipment (shower, dry toilets, swimming pool), the shady place and especially the welcome and the kindness of our host and his acolytes (Jacqueline the dog and Bernard the kitten).
    The children want to come back several nights, it's a guaranteed success!
    See you soon maybe

  • Very nice place, perfect to be away from the summer crowd!!!

  • Thanks to Chris for his warm welcome, our best gamping experience ever! Super well located, between mountain, sea and river... We will come back, for sure !

  • Chris is an interesting and chill person. He was incredibly welcoming and we had very interesting conversations on everything and nothing. The location is peaceful and the dog (Jacqueline?) made the place even better. Everything is built around the environment and promotes a non-wasteful lifestyle. Chris fulfills the promises from his location's profile.

    Chris est chill et interesant. Il était incroyablement accuillant et nous avons eu des conversations super interesantes en parlant de tout et de rien. Le site tranquil et la chienne (Jacqueline ?) rend l'endroit encore meilleur. Tout est construit autour de l'environnement et promeut un mode de vie sans gachie. Chris tient toutes les promésses faites sur son anonce.

  • Great stay! Christophe is adorable. The view is magnificent. It is what I expected. We will come back.

  • Do not hesitate to settle down and enjoy the sweetness of the atmosphere here... Christophe will inform you about the hidden corners of the region (hot spring at 20min...), willingly shares his passion for permaculture, and made us taste his delicious 100% organic wine, if it is possible! We just want to come back!

  • Peace and quiet in this beautiful natural setting. We found what we were looking for and we had a great time.
    Christophe is a nice guy, welcoming and very friendly.
    We recommend without hesitation.
