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 an organization!
What beautiful facilities!
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 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 ;)
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 :-)
Ambroise and Margaux
Short stay but rich by its magic place and hosts to know.Thiery and Sylvie are beautiful people. Friendly and warm, they knew how to make the most of their little corner of paradise. Facilities for children and adults very appreciable and appreciated. The sanitary facilities are well maintained. What good memories. Looking forward to seeing you again. and Belle. Cath Germain Clovis and Alison
First Bordelais to put our tent at Thierry's, his wife, their son and of course Belle their dog.
Thierry and his family are very welcoming, warm and reactive. They did everything themselves for the good of the travelers (shower, toilet, kitchen, electricity connection...)
Nothing to say, a great experience to be spent with them even if it was only for one night go there it's great with a small view on the sea from the wake up what more can we say.
Thanks to them for their hospitality
Very nice welcome from Thiery in a very nice place well arranged by him with a beautiful view on the heights of Menton. As agreed, Thiery provided us with tent and mattress. Unfortunately, we were only in transit for one night so could not fully enjoy.
Just for the record, to have a good stay, bring mosquito repellent ????
We had a great stay at Thierry's place. Initially the steps are a little effort to reach the place with your luggage but Thierry was very supportive and helped us with the luggage. Electricity, toilet, a good warm shower and even a small bar where one can use the oven, eat or use the fridge and freezer were there. Apart from the facilities, you have a great view and if the weather is good you can even see the seaside from your tent place. Thanks for the the good time and maybe see you and the dog Belle again in one of our upcoming trips.
Thiery offers a great place to camp. You can use all the normal services of a campsite with the addition of toilet paper, stove, refrigerator and soap. The environment is comfortable and on a human scale. It is possible to access the structure only through a long staircase that takes you away from the unguarded parking lot. Since there is only one bathroom and one shower, both always very clean, the structure allows a full comfort with a user of a few people, what we experienced.
His dog is a playful that can not access the area where the tents are allocated. The entrance for campers is autonomous and not subject to schedules. Thiery is very helpful for everything including check in and check out time.
A first experience in gamping with my son at the top.
We were very well received by Thiery and Sylvie.
The place is very well equipped with electricity, toilets and showers.
It is absolutely necessary to eat on the spot because the socca and the pasta with pistou of Thiery are delicious. Their son Hugo got along very well with my son.
A small hike in the morning was programmed with the other gampeurs as well as Thiery and Sylvie, where we visited the heights of Castellar. The view is extraordinary.
I recommend this place without hesitation.
My only regret is to have taken only one night, I would renew this experience in several days.
Even for this too short stay, I was received in a royal way by Thierry and Sylvie and their son Hugo who are of an enormous kindness, SUPER well equipped camp-site in a splendid and calm place, it makes no doubt that I would return for a much longer period.and, Forgive me I forgot their adorable dog Belle who is adorable like all! Thank you for this pleasant stay!
Excellent ! We had a pleasant stay at Thiery and Sylvie's place! They are very welcoming hosts. Our son got along very well with their child Hugo, but also (and especially ???? ) with their adorable dog Belle ! Thiery and Sylvie will know how to guide you to make beautiful ballads and take advantage of the place and its surroundings. In short, we highly recommend them!
We had a very good stay with Thierry. The place is very well equipped with electricity on the pitches, clean toilets and a summer kitchen. A big table is at your disposal and Thierry will treat you with his good local dishes and his sympathy. Unbeatable quality/price ratio. Many games available for children, an ideal situation to discover the region.
Perfect location and welcome!
Bikers, the rental of tent and carpet is very convenient to not encumber you!
Thiery was very available and friendly.
Only small hitch for us: The ground is a bit hard.
You are in the nature, so bring some anti-mosquitoes :)
Ps : the view in the morning is MA-GNI-FIC
Our most beautiful stage and discovery during our itinerant vacations!
We knew neither Menton nor Castellar. We fell under the charm of these atypical villages and of character and discovered a superb corner where to lodge... at Thiery's : A wonderful and warm host who breathes good mood. Thiery likes to share and you can feel it, we regret not having been able to stay until Friday when he had planned an evening to share and exchange around a good meal prepared by him.
Otherwise Castellar is a little corner of paradise where to stay to discover the French Riviera. The location is ideal, only 15/20 minutes from Menton and its train station where all the destinations of the French Riviera are quickly and cheaply accessible.
We recommend this place without hesitation!
Valentin & Margaux
Excellent address for camping! We were welcomed with an aperitif to know the rest of the campsite, very nice! The site is well located with a small view on the sea, quiet and always clean with convenient places to eat. Thiery is always ready to give good tips on his region. It deserves the 5 stars!
Thanks to you for your welcome
Gamping extra and very well arranged. Thiery and Sylvie are very welcoming and available. Moreover they received us at their table for a dinner aperitif, in all simplicity and conviviality. The children were able to take full advantage of the badminton court, the trampoline and also played with Belle, their dog. The place is ideal to go on the Riviera and to find this small corner of paradise in the evening.
Sylvie and Thierry welcomed us for a week. Their welcome was particularly warm and we appreciated these moments of exchange around a socca or a home-made pizza. Besides, nothing to say about the gamping which is always perfect!
Sylvie and Thierry deserve a 20/20 for the very well equipped gamping and for their sympathy. We strongly recommend them!
