  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Super stay, perfect welcome, good plans, availability, perfect setting. I highly recommend it !

  • Thank you Chris, these are moments and a place that I will never forget. Chris is a wonderful person, who through this stay (much too short...) made me understand many things that I think will be useful. The calm is there and boredom is not possible! I really hope to come back soon on this magnificent place where one feels immediately at ease thanks to the work of Chris. Thank you for everything and see you soon!

  • A magnificent site in the middle of nature, a charming and welcoming host who does everything possible to make your stay a success. We hope to come back for more beautiful hikes on the Canigou.

  • A short stay but in a perfect setting, a very friendly and welcoming host!

  • Very beautiful region between the mountain, the lake, the fruit and vegetables gorged with sun... In short, it's the foot!
    Christophe is not stingy with advice for good nature spots, sports,...
    His land in' terrace offers a superb view on the canigou, and there is enough shade.
    My children loved it and want to go back !

  • Delighted! Rarely was I welcomed by such a warm and friendly person. Christophe is a good and friendly man, a favorite! His way of life is fascinating, he is largely autonomous with his land which is full of resources. A change of scenery guaranteed for all city dwellers. Also, the region is so beautiful, and the land is well located, great walk to do. The Canigou has a lot of allure, the sea is not far too. You will also meet Christophe's little border collie, Jacqueline, as cool as her master! You can go there with confidence, you will leave with a warm heart and a big smile.

  • Very nice setting this land in the heart of the forest and fruit trees below. It is a nice place to relax with the pool. The reception is very simple and warm! I recommend it!

  • A little corner of paradise where it is good to live, where nature and you are one. When you know the story of Chris and his land to which he gave all his energy and passion to have this simple and beautiful way of life, it makes the stay even more enjoyable. On top of that, Chris is a great person, who loves to pass on and share what he has built. All this in a soothing and so beautiful area! If you need to relax and get back to the basics of life, come and say hello to Chris, he will be delighted. ????

  • Wow. What a beautiful place. An enchanted forest. The calm. The serenity.
    Chris welcomed me with great kindness, and one feels immediately at ease. He is great.
    The pitches are large and pleasant, shady and very pleasant.
    I recommend without hesitation.
    Love

  • We are delighted with our stay! Comfort in the middle of nature! We were warmly welcomed by Chris who gave us a lot of advices to enjoy the area, and the place was just what we were looking for: a quiet and charming piece of forest, there is even a swimming pool + sunbathing! Thanks again for your welcome, next time we will stay longer :)

  • An excellent reception in the person of Christophe who is a whole person, jovial, passionate about what he does and who will know how to give you good plans/advice for your stay ???? .
    I found his wooded and shaded ground with according to the site a very beautiful sight on the massif of Canigou relatively interesting with great capacities and others to come I think.
    Gamping ideally placed at the crossroads of several walks /randos/cultural visits etc... a big positive point!
    Nevertheless the barking at night is a bit annoying especially if you want to recover from big days of walking ...and it spoils a bit the fact of hearing just the sounds of the forest and the owls lol .To advise despite everything ☺️

  • We had an amazing relaxing time at Christophes beautiful place. Very well done! Much recommended!

  • Christophe was very welcoming and came to get us to find the campsite which is located between the olive trees and the nectarines.
    The view from our location was spectacular.
    He gave us precious advice for the hot springs.
    We also loved the presence of Jacqueline, the little black dog very cute.
    Perfect to discover the region, the little yellow train and the hikes.
