Land & setting
  • Quiet, friendly, secluded spot, car cannot be parked in front, there is a small path to go down.

  • Sylvie and Thiery are very kind, thoughtful and adorable hosts!
    We spent 3 days with them and it was a wonderful encounter. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of their home. We recommend them 100% for your vacations and we hope to return for a next stay too!
    See you soon, Sibylle and Mathieu

  • We had a wonderful time with Sylvie and Thierry! They're kind, welcoming and attentive, and they quickly put us at ease. The evening we spent with them was simply brilliant. We were really sad to leave, but we'll be back very soon and for longer.

  • Many thanks to Thierry,
    As far as the gamping is concerned, everything is present and we lack nothing.
    We had a great time with him. Very welcoming, he makes you feel at home,
    Faced with such a great rockstar, it's hard to be disappointed with your stay.

  • Thierry and his wife are lovely people. Idyllic location, calm, panoramic sea views.

    The facilities are top-notch.
    I highly recommend ???? See you soon! ????

  • Very good welcome, top gamping! Very functional and pleasant! Thank you for your stay!

  • We have fond memories of this stay:

    Thiery and Sylvie have the art of hospitality, availability and conviviality...

    To begin with:
    The great aperitif shared by Thiery, plus the socca, pasta with pistou sauce and tourte, a delightful, warm moment
    and a bonding experience with the other gampeurs!...

    And then there were the hard-fought badminton matches with Thiery (unbeatable) and Yvette, his super-friendly neighbor!

    All in a very pleasant, well-appointed setting.

    We had a wonderful time discovering a region
    and beautiful people...

    Many thanks to Sylvie and Thiery
    Aleksandra,Jacques and Clara

  • Superb, perfect. I had everything available, toilet, sink, shower, electrical outlet, table, kitchen etc. ... Very nice and accommodating owner. You just need to park a little higher up as it's not accessible by car. Highly recommend.

  • We spent a very nice stay thanks to very welcoming and smiling hosts who were able to provide us with top locations.
    A big thank you to them for these magnificent vacations that we could spend.

  • Thierry welcomes us without fuss in his place in the heart of the Castellar valley, he is kind and always ready to help his guests
    Thanks for the beers :)

  • Extraordinary gamping stay at Sylvie and Thierry's place, we are so good there! The description and the comments correspond perfectly, we discovered amazed a splendid place, green, calm allowing to take advantage of the coast in a very pleasant natural environment, with the variation although easy of access. The pitches are very well laid out, spacious, flat, shaded with very comfortable, clean and functional facilities (electricity, lighting, sanitary facilities, drying rack, access, parking ...). They are indeed exceptional hosts who welcomed us in their paradise: reactivity (reservation in less than 24 hours before our arrival), availability, kindness, sharing in all simplicity, extra welcome for the children, magnificent dog very well educated and great with the children, generous and discreet hospitality, we were even invited to a discovery dinner of some delicious specialties ..... Thierry and Sylvie are passionate about camping, but above all they want to share happiness, and it is successful. So thank you for having welcomed us at your place, we will come back !

  • ✨ Awesome ✨

    (We'll try to keep it short)

    A very nice welcome from our arrival that gave us the impression to arrive as at home and much more, (Thiery even helped us to unload our stuff, really nice! )

    A very detailed visit of the campsite and the welcome drink was offered to us!

    The campsite is very functional, excellent for families with children! Thiery and his companion have arranged everything so that children and adults can play (soccer, volleyball, picnic, tranpoliggue, boule, table soccer, basketball, etc.) and yes, there is no lack of activities here!

    Thiery and his companion surprised us one evening with an aperitif dinner with the specialties of the region (very pleasant and friendly!!!)

    I can assure you that Thiery and his companion in spite of their hard day of work, he will do everything so that you can miss nothing and be with your small care!

    And yes if the possibilities would allow it is 1 complete month that we would have wished to be at home!

    Also with the view on the sea surrounded by the smell of lemons where we could not consume the fruits of the fresh garden.

    It is with very good memories that we took the road!

    We look forward to next year to relive this memorable experience!

    Thank you both for your love of running a family campground!

  • I had an excellent stay with Thierry who gave me excellent advice for trips in the area.

    The setting and the village of Castellar where the gamping is located are magnificent

  • I spent an unforgettable stay, Thiery and Sylvie, knew how to create a small corner of paradise, everything is well thought out and their kindness is just exceptional, I hope to be able to come back one day, I highly recommend this Gamping, thanks again for everything

  • We had a very pleasant and relaxed time in the little Paradise Thiery and Sylvie created around their house. They (and Belle!)gave us a very warm welcome, evenings of homemade food and rosé with the other campers, all very good and appreciated! The Campsite is quiet, clean, warm shower, perfectly located near Menton, and very close to the centre of the beautiful village Castellar. Thanks for all!

  • We had a wonderful stay at Thiery and Sylvie's place! We did not miss anything. Thanks again for everything!

  • A very warm welcome from the owners, the other campers and us, with the discovery of Thiery's dish (very good) and an evening of drinking as it should be. A great place with all that it is necessary, the fact of the loan of the tent that relieved us of a weight, still thank you.

  • The welcome was very warm and friendly. The site is very beautiful, well maintained and equipped. It was a pleasant stay and we will be happy to repeat it.
    Thanks to Thiery and Sylvie

  • Perfect nothing to say we shared a magical moment with my daughters! We give them big kisses and a big hug to Belle, we will miss her too much.

  • This gamping is amazing. The host is so welcoming and takes care of everything. Hot showers. Clean toilet. Quiet. Green paradise. I can highly recommend.

  • We were delighted with our stay in this Gamping. Thiery and Sylvie welcomed us very warmly, they are quality hosts. The gamping is ideally located compared to Menton among other things. It is very well maintained. We spent two days in this little corner of paradise. We can't wait for our next stay in the South, so that we can go back there ;-)

  • For a first, what a first....
    Indeed first gamping for my son Victor and me and I don't know how we are going to find even as good as what we have just lived at Sylvie and Thierry's place.
    If you are looking for a top welcome, the kindness and the moments of sharing of the hosts it is well here that you must come.
    You will absolutely have to taste the socca made by Thierry which is just exceptional.
    Our location with a magnificent view and the cleanliness of the sanitary block only reinforced our feeling of well-being.
    In short, no hesitation to have when booking your stay.
    Once again a big thank you Sylvie, Hugo, Thierry (and Belle) for this too short stay.

  • Very nice experience Thank you for all of you and see you maybe next time

  • Adorable owners. For a big bath of kindness...
    Plan to bring mosquito repellent products

  • Long live the vacations, long live the "baboules" gamping!
    An unforgettable stay that made us forget all our scheduled visits and hikes in the region. Our teenagers had a great time with Hugo in all the equipment provided (soccer and badminton games) and Belle the dog. Thiery and Sylvie made their gamping a place where it is "too" good to live. We will remember the meals prepared after an aperitif at the "place du rosé", the cooking lessons given by Thiery (Ah! the socca good for the diet!), the famous games of petanque where it was better to let the boss win, the incredible encounters with "Rémi the pirate", "Nathanaëlle the Caribbean tornado" and "Jérôme dit le Sage" around a late Limoncello. And of course, all the other gamblers.

    No, more seriously, the return was difficult for us. We wanted to stay a few more days in this quiet and soothing place where the amenities were always impeccable; the place made us feel at home.

    Gamping to be recommended! Certainly the best in France (if not in the universe - even the aliens envy us)!

  • Great stay at Thiery and Sylvie ! Very warm welcome and good atmosphere, the setting is quiet and beautiful. I strongly recommend it !

  • A far too short stay!!!

    What to say, except all my congratulations to Thiery and Sylvie for their work.
    The setting is beautiful (super clean the sanitary corner, nice the bar-cooking corner) well organized and really well equipped for the well being and comfort of the holiday makers. This place is calm, restful, rejuvenating, rather family and ideal for the reception of the small and large and the lovers of nature and the camping in small committee.
    The fact of not being able to reach the pitches directly by car, but on foot seems to me a formality, a detail (except for people with reduced mobility) when one discovers afterwards the beauty of the place, the welcome, the simplicity, the kindness and the generosity of its hosts.
    Thank you for these excellent moments spent in your company and that of the other campers. A particular wink to Hugo, Rémi, Jérôme, Laurence, Didier and their 2super adoscool :-), Nouche, Sami and little Solal.
    Thank you for the recipe and the tasting of the Socca, this famous and excellent chickpea cake.
    I will try to make the cake again soon but I hope to be able to come back and eat the original made by Thiery during a future stay.

    In summary :
    What a welcome!
    What kindness!
    What conviviality!
    What an organization!
    What security!
    What beautiful facilities!
    What cleanliness!
    What ......... !
    Everything was more than perfect for me :-)
    but way too short!

    I thank you from the bottom of my heart Thiery and Sylvie for your kindness, your generosity and wish you a long and happy success of your beautiful activity.
    I felt almost as if I were among friends. You are welcome in my home!
    See you soon and I look forward to a future stay in this beautiful village of Castellar.

    I recommend this place to people who are respectful of nature, of animals (the playful and precious dog "belle" is a perfect guardian as well as the happiness of children and adults), generous, who know how to appreciate conviviality, simplicity and sharing.
    The others go your way !!!! :-)

  • Between the mountains and the sea lies the beautiful village of Castellar, where we stopped for one night at Thierry and Sylvie's house.

    We were welcomed in the best way possible, we immediately felt at ease, a bit like at home.

    Very good conviviality with our hosts as well as the other gampeurs. We had the impression to be a small community which shared their life in this incredible frame that Thierry and Sylvie put at our disposal.

    Aperitif and meal shared all together, good mood and laughter.

    Charming place, very pleasant, everything is put at our disposal so that we feel good there.

    We will surely come back in a few years.

    In any case, I recommend you this gamping.

    Thanks again to you both for everything. Let us know if one day you decide to come to Strasbourg.

    Good continuation, full of beautiful things and a big caress to Belle.

  • Summer 1981, I was 5 years old, I discovered with my parents the small village of Castellar. For several years, every summer I found this small village dear to my heart, where I used the cobblestones of all the small streets of the village. It has been ten years since I last saw Castellar, and it was with great pleasure and nostalgia that I returned there this summer with my children, Lia, Emile and their cousin Clément. This return to our roots was even more exceptional when we discovered the little Gamping of Thierry, Sylvie and Hugo, a place which smells good the conviviality, the sharing, the generosity, the exchanges and the meetings with the other gampeurs. We will not forget the games of petanque with the famous "PUTAIN I am not right" of Thierry, the matches of badminton, the games of soccer, the tournaments of darts more all the other leisures which we could appreciate Lia, Emile and Clément. Thank you again Thierry and Sylvie for your welcome, your generosity and the good time we had together around a good socca and a good bottle. A thought for belle, the children's best friend. A great stay that we recommend you. We kiss you all three very hard, don't change anything, we will see you again very soon. The people from Toulouse, Emile, Lia, Clement & Cyril

  • We spent a pleasant week at Thierry and Sylvie's where we met other campers. The place is calm and the exchanges rich. The children appreciated the facilities provided for them and the company of Belle.

  • Super small corner of paradise located between sea and mountain. Thierry, Sylvie, Belle the dog and Winnie the cat are perfect hosts! We really appreciated the conviviality of this beautiful little campsite. We will come back there !

  • It's been 1 year... That I had already come to Thierry and Sylvie's house. I had spent an excellent moment during my previous vacations; and again this year! Always a delight, a pleasure and a feeling of being at home. In no other place have I found such people, always friendly, welcoming and full of kindness. Thierry as well as Sylvie really care about the well-being of their guests. There have been many improvements on the site (addition of playgrounds, shelves to store provisions,...). Of course, always good advice to help us make the most of the area. I read in Menton: "Menton is the pearl of France" I will add "this treasure is at Thierry and Sylvie".

  • 10 days.
    10 great days, and a stay that turned out to be too short. It is now with nostalgia that I leave this comment.
    Without speaking about the region, the setting and the view on the sea which is mirific, these vacations were incredible. Full of beautiful meetings, as much with the gampeurs (hello Rémi), as with Thiery and Sylvie, smiling people, kind and full of advice to take advantage of the region.
    A family atmosphere, a socca at the top, a very well maintained gamping, a quiet garden as well as a perfect point of view for the amateurs of astronomies and an adorable dog. All this in these 800m2.
    Stella, 17 years old .

    First experience, choice made following the comments left by the gampeurs and by the arrangement of the gamping.
    I found on the spot a small corner of paradise, sun and a family. I too, in turn, recommend it to you.
    Thank you Sylvie, Thiery for your kindness and thank you Rémi for the hot coffee in the morning.

  • A corner of paradise, a warm welcome and an evening of beautiful encounters. What more could we ask for. We will come back with great pleasure because this stay was a great one. A big thank you! We highly recommend it! Axel and Theo

  • During our stay, we stayed in much more expensive campsites, but much less pleasant than this gamping. The welcome is exceptional. I recommend it.

  • I had a wonderful stay of more than a month at the gamping of Thiery and Sylvie who welcomed me very well, directly we feel like at home. Thiery and Sylvie will be happy to give you tips and tricks about the surroundings and organize weekend walks and activities with the gampeurs. I'm thinking of coming back to their gamping paradise after my road trip in Italy. A big thank you to Thiery and Sylvie.

  • One night for two on a site of Thierry.
    Very good welcome, Thierry proved to be a good smiling host.
    Isolated and quiet, the site has all the amenities.

  • A wonderful place, ideally located, great hosts, nothing to complain about!
    And a very good welcome
    everything was perfect

  • We had an amazing time at Gamping la coupiere! Everyone is really friendly and helpfull, if you are lucky Thierry will cook one if his specialities and take you on a local trip through the village (the cheese they sell is awesome!). Everyone can take an example of the hospitality of this couple, it is truly amazing!

  • Thierry and Sylvie are generous and very friendly. Warm place, nice space, a playful dog and a nice evening shared! I highly recommend!

  • Paradise really exists and it is here :)
    Thierry and Sylvie are warm and caring : we had a great time with them ...
    Very good experience and to be done again of course :)
    The site is quiet : a real haven of peace to rest and drink the aperitif of course :)
    Thanks to Thierry and Sylvie without forgetting Belle ;)

  • Very friendly welcome by Thierry despite my late arrival and while he was working early the next day! Thank you!

    Very restful nights in this small jewel of mountain countryside, a well preserved natural site and nicely arranged for camping, frankly, nothing to say, for me everything was perfect. :)

    Happy to have met hosts so generous of themselves.
    Thank you Sylvie, Thierry... and Belle ;)

  • My stay at Thierry and Sylvie's was perfect, the campsite has everything you need to have a great stay, summer kitchen, sanitary facilities and a fully equipped playground. Without counting the numerous activities in Castellar and the surroundings accessible by bus or by magnificent hiking trails. We feel so good here, I have made a new reservation for 15 days. Thank you

  • I thank you once again for your welcome. My 2 day stay went perfectly. Thiery and Sylvie are very pleasant and their Gamping is ideally located with exceptional framework. The cleanliness is also irreproachable. I strongly recommend ;)
    Thank you!!!

  • Super welcome from Thierry and Sylvie, they are listening to you and give very good information on the region, I recommend them for your next stay you will not be disappointed.

  • Another great welcome from Sylvie and Thiery, I will really have to come longer next time! I recommend to all this small paradise to recharge your batteries between sea and mountain and where nature is married with the friendliness of hosts who are very welcoming! I hope to see you soon!

  • I was particularly well received by Thiery and Sylvie. I found them very warm and attentive to my well-being, thank you again!
    Belle is a nugget of a dog!
    The facilities are well designed and comfortable, everything is clean and functional.
    It's a little corner of paradise, I loved it, I recommend it!

  • Wonderful stay with Sylvie and Thierry.
    The welcome was very warm, we could even taste the specialities of the region during a dinner prepared by our hosts.
    Plunged in the middle of nature, the setting was idyllic.
    Delighted with this experience, it is with great pleasure that we will return to your place.

    Léa and Matthias

  • A breathtaking setting, a warm welcome, the calm of nature, it's the singing of the birds that made me open my eyes gently in the morning. Thierry made sure that everything went well and gave us lots of good advice.
    We can't wait for next year...

  • A big thank you to Thierry and Sylvie for their warm and friendly welcome. We were like little kings in their campsite between mountain, nature, calm and the city of Menton. A very pleasant place to rest! We thank you for your availability to exchange with pleasure, as well as your numerous attentions for all our comfort.
    Thierry and Sylvie exchange with pleasure the good plans, the beaches to be attended, the unknown but magic places!

    We recommend this family with great pleasure !!! and will certainly come back for next vacations :-)
