Warm welcome, more than perfect place... Personally, it is impossible to do better... Thank you and see you soon! PS don't forget to taste the home made beers.
We had an excellent stay with Josselin and Stéphanie. Welcome, services and cleanliness ! We recommend you this place !
Second stay at Stéphanie and Josselin's, it was already perfect last year, well it's even more perfect this year thanks to the small improvements added to a wonderful site. The kindness of the hosts, the impeccable cleanliness of the sanitary facilities, the beauty of the place and the region... Thank you very much to both of you and a nice caress for Hello sympa like his masters. See you next year!
Our stay with Stéphanie and Josselin was perfect. Everything there breathes nature: the forest, the stream, the wildlife... The sanitary facilities are very nice and very clean. The children loved the zip line, the river with the water pistols, the forest... and driving the tractor with the stuff in the trailer! What a joy to be able to make a real fire on the site (with the wood provided and the necessary to light it is unheard of). Thanks to Josselin for all his wise but not invasive advice. We enjoyed every moment and are already looking forward to coming back. Thanks to both of you!
Stéphanie and Josselin are very welcoming and friendly hosts. The sanitary facilities are very clean..cleaned with care every day. The place is very pleasant!!! At the top!!!
Top top top! We hope to return one day!
We spent an excellent week at Stéphanie and Josselin's in their beautiful and large park. This one is perfectly maintained, shaded and allows us to enjoy a beautiful and big bowl of air in the middle of nature with the river in the background, which is really relaxing. The children loved to play in the river, with the games provided and to take care of the animals. The site is well secured and allows the children to be relatively autonomous, which is appreciated. Stéphanie and Josselin are very welcoming, caring hosts and always give good advice. A real nice meeting. The sanitary facilities are always clean and functional, as are the rest of the facilities on the site. The region is very beautiful and many hikes are in the immediate vicinity. We will definitely come back to Stéphanie and Josselin's place, which is for the moment, the best address where we have camped. A real big thank you for their welcome and their kindness which allowed us to fully enjoy our stay and to savor many good home made beers.
Very pleasant stay, really!
Thank you very much!
Very nice setting, very good welcome, the campfire with the grilled marshmallows, the river that relaxes and refreshes...
We really want to come back.
The only drawback is the distance between the camping car site and the tent site when you are a group with both equipments.
A very pleasant stay with Stéphanie and Josselin who are very attentive and considerate for the comfort of the campers.
The cleanliness and the quality of the equipment at our disposal are also to be noted.
And if you like beer, Josselin produces excellent home-made beer.
In short, you can go there with your eyes closed to discover this beautiful region!
Everything was perfect at Josselin and Stéphanie's. Very pleasant setting, perfect place to pitch your tent. Really nice place for a good motorcycle ride, and Josselin advised us to visit many places by motorcycle, not to mention the roadtrip to Switzerland.
Campfire and barbecue available, very nice and out of sight.
P.S. : The German beer that Josselin proposes is really a delight, it's a pity that I couldn't taste Josselin's craft beer because it was in preparation, but it's only a postponement. In any case, thank you for all the explanations about the making of the beer, it was really interesting to know more about it.
I hope to see you again.
A quiet and comfortable place with friendly owners. The breakfast was appreciated! We will definitely come back.
2nd stay at Stéphanie and Josselin's and clearly not the last! Ideal place for a family stay in nature, relaxing along the river. The infrastructures completely meet our expectations and the hosts are more than welcoming... and the "house" beer is excellent! We can only recommend it! Thank you ????
We spent three nights with the camper. The kids loved the place while playing in the creek. Taking a shower while looking at the lawn was a new experience. The home-made beer is excellent. The zipline for the kids, the campfire, the planned walk,... Everything was perfect and we enjoyed the rain.
We spent two days full of happiness at this wonderful place. We loved the little river, where the children swam most of the day, the nice garden with the chickens and the two billy goats, the good beer that Josselin made us taste... and, of course, the zip line! Thank you for your kindness, Stéphanie and Josselin, we highly recommend your place! Thank you for everything!
Our 2nd stay on Stéphanie and Josselin's property. Perfect for a family or group! They are a very welcoming couple.
Josselin let the kids help him feed the animals and that was great for my kids.
A great stay !
Josselin and Stéphanie are really helpful and have very good advice about what to do in the area.
I have already done more than 10 gampings and this one is in my top 3 !
Super WE. Very nice place, just as friendly as Stéphanie and Josselin who I thank very much for their welcome. We felt so good that we extended our stay by one night. I can only recommend this little corner of paradise !
We spent a pleasant stay at Josselin's and his family's, who always take care of their guests. Very pleasant and quiet place, well maintained grounds and very clean toilets.
Besides the quiet and charming location, we were welcomed by the kindness of Josselin and the smile of Stéphanie.
Awakened by the lovely sound of the little stream and the singing of the birds, our first stay as gampeurs went wonderfully well thanks to the clean and functional equipment, the solutions to our oversights (thanks again for the coffee maker ;) ) and thanks to the advice on visiting this beautiful region. We will definitely come back! Patrick and Marion
We had a very pleasant stay in the property of Josselin and Stéphanie. They are concerned about the well being of the people, the reception, the setting are of quality, the sanitary are very clean.
It was a first in Gamping and will be with pleasure to come back to spend a stay there.
Very pleasant stay with Stéphanie and Josselin.
Very sympathetic couple and concerned about the well being of their guests.
Bucolic environment on the edge of the river, ...Very clean sanitary.
We highly recommend it !
Stéphanie and Josselin opened their little paradise to us with sincere kindness and thoughtfulness.
We only have one desire: to return there to enjoy again these beautiful landscapes.
Thank you again for this beautiful stay.
Great stay with Stéphanie and Josselin who are very welcoming. ????
The children had the pleasure to try the tyrolienne, to run in the river, while we enjoyed the calm of the wood fire corner.
We had a great time in Haute Saône, we will come back without hesitation to taste our home made beer????
Thanks again to you 2, nice meeting????
Thank you Josselin for your welcome ! We keep a very good memory of the few days spent at your place.
We highly recommend it because "A fresse, no stress" And you may even have the chance to go tirolienne :) Next time we come to walk...
The setting is absolutely splendid, calm and restful, in a region with landscapes that are frankly worth the detour. Relaxing by the river is pure happiness. The hosts are remarkably kind and everything is done to ensure the comfort of the campers. Josselin is not only a skilled handyman, he is a true inventor!
A new stay without any doubt in 2020, with the Tour de France!
Thank you very much Stéphanie and Josselin !
very welcoming, friendly, very good accommodation, quiet environment. to do again!
We spent a good night here. It was very nice and quiet. We received a warm welcome. Our son liked the goats and the children's toys. The toilet and shower were clean and we had everything we needed. Thank you very much Josselin and Stéphanie.
Very nice property (my friend was very enthusiastic) in a small remote village, big nice outdoor space with shower and toilet. The hosts were very friendly and together we even tried the Zipline, which was a lot of fun! We would like to come back one day, for sure. :)
For our first time in gamping it was a real love at first sight ! Thanks to Josselin and his wife for their extremely friendly welcome and their kindness throughout our stay while respecting our privacy. Nothing is missing ! Numerous equipments are at your disposal. The cleanliness of the place is irreproachable and the setting magnificent of quietude. Hearing the sound of the stream nearby is a real pleasure as well as the presence of the goats, the chickens and Ello ????. Josselin will take the time to advise you on nearby walks. We highly recommend this gamping ! ????????
Recommended to everyone that likes to camp. Beautiful quiet garden next to a small river in a beautiful area. Josselin is a suoer friendly guy who will help you qith anything. The toilet and shower is good and there is also a small kitchen. For the money you have to pay you can't be in a better place!
A big thank you to Josselin and Stéphanie for sharing this corner of paradise with travellers !
The toilets, the shower, the little shelter, the table and the possibility to make a nice fire ! Everything is there to make you feel good and comfortable even in bad weather.
A place which reflects the will of Josselin and Stéphanie to welcome the travelers as well as possible...
We will not hesitate to come back to enjoy it more !
We had an exceptional stay in all points: a warm welcome out of the ordinary by the whole family, a unique place where the calmness soothes and relaxes along the river, ideal infrastructures for easy logistics (even with small children!), a magnificent region to discover during beautiful walks,... In short, a top vacation, we will come back for sure! THANK YOU for everything!
We spent two nights at Josselin and Stéphanie's house in order to hike in the land of a thousand ponds: the choice was ideal.
Josselin is a thoughtful host who has put everything in place so that his campers lack nothing: access to a shower, toilets, a sink (hot/cold water), a fridge and even provides documentation on the surroundings.
A river runs through the middle of the site and it is a real pleasure to be rocked by the flow of water.
Great welcome in a very nice setting.
Everything is done so that the stay is perfect
Very nice stopover
Thanks again to Josselin and his family for the warm welcome
It is very nice and comfortable to camp in this beautiful place
Delighted with my meetings and to have shared our escapade with these Belgian holiday makers with us
The impression of being with a group of friends is great!
Thank you very much, Fabrice
We really enjoyed our stay on Josselin and his family's property! This place is perfect for children. This host is very welcoming and was willing to do anything to make our visit perfect! We were going to go out for a hike that he suggested but the place was so quiet and relaxing that we decided to stay and enjoy it! A true oasis for our weekend!
We spent a few wonderful days at Josselin. An extremely nice and helpful host. He did everything to make our stay more enjoyable. A heartfelt thank you again. Highly recommended !!!
Exceptional and peaceful setting for nature lovers. The river is accessible to refresh oneself and play fishing. My dog and I enjoyed the river as much as the forest while hiking. Josselin and his wife welcomed me very well and I was able to make a beautiful hike thanks to the great advice, explanations and maps provided by Josselin.
I would return with great pleasure but on a longer stay in order to explore a little more the region which is really very beautiful.
I recommend this place especially if you like walking and even if you are alone you can take advantage of Josselin's advice and his kindness.
Perfect stay for me and my dog!
A big thank you to Josselin and his family for a warm welcome and a friendly atmosphere. The setting is magnificent, calm and pleasant, Josselin was very attentive! Beautiful hikes to do in the area, that our hosts indicated to us with enthusiasm. Thank you again Josselin, hello to your family and to all your charming animals!
Despite our late reservation and our arrival with a little delay, we were well received. A site in edge of river, surrounded by trees, the evening meal around a campfire, very nice. To discover for those who love nature. Thanks to Josselin.
