Description

In the heart of a mid-mountain village renowned for its hiking, biking and motorcycling, we welcome you since 2017 on the banks of the river Raddon in a vast plot of land whose calm, vegetation and facilities allow to preserve the rest and privacy of everyone.
Near the Planche des Belles Filles, our village is regularly crossed by the riders of the Tour de France. Come and discover the charm of the Vosges Saônoises, we look forward to meeting you!

The setting

No noise... except maybe the sound of the water in the river !
In the Parc Naturel Régional des Ballons des Vosges (Réserve Naturelle des Ballons Comtois) and the Pays des Mille Étangs, we will be happy to welcome you in our green setting.
The site is crossed by a private category 1 river (fishing), and the two camping areas are connected by a private bridge that spans the bed of the Raddon: you are at the campsite "Le Pont du Bas"!
Depending on your preferences, there are shaded and sunny areas.
Your evenings around the campfire (specific location and wood provided).
The goats and chickens will be delighted with your visit...
Some squirrels will also come to spy on you, and you will be able to observe the kites and the goshawks. The heron comes to dip its legs in the morning to track trout and crayfish....

The spots

The first area is for campers, vans and caravans (two sites, one of which is stabilized for heavy vehicles - new in 2022), on the edge of the departmental road, which is rarely used, and the river.
This road is regularly used by the Tour de France during the stages at the Planche des Belles Filles, which has become a classic of the Tour with 6 arrivals in the last 10 editions.

A second area further back in the forest is ideal for tents (three pitches).
In both cases, the terrain is flat and you will be camping by the water.
There are no restrictions on the size of your tents.
The pitches are away from the house and out of sight thanks to the rather dense vegetation.

The sanitary facilities

Permanent access to independent sanitary facilities (1 shower with hot water and 1 toilet: see photos), and to a room with sink and hot water (dishes, small toilet, small laundry...). These facilities are cleaned every day. For the purists ;) solar showers are also available on request.

The draining of waste water is possible on the condition of bringing it to the outside sanitary facilities (with a can for example, there is no draining grid on the ground). You can also empty your chemical toilet cassettes into the toilets.

The amenities

Outdoor wifi throughout the grounds.

A small shelter is at the collective disposal of the campers towards the "tents" area (see photos): it allows you to cook and eat in the shade (or in the dry!) in all circumstances.
It is equipped with a table and benches, a 2-burner camping stove (gas at your expense, see the "rules of the field"), a rechargeable lantern for your evenings and it is extended by an awning (see photos) to easily cover a table for 12 to 15 people.
In the sink room, the occupants of the three tent sites share an 80cm refrigerator. A microwave oven is also available for everyone. We can also lend you a kettle.

Most of the interior and exterior lights are automatic to facilitate your movements in the evening (email hidden)Salt, pepper, barbecue and pickaxe are at your disposal, but we ask you to bring your own dishes and cooking utensils.

Electricity without supplement on the first space: plugs CEE (P17) 16A type "camping", we advise you to envisage an extension cord of approximately 20m.
No electricity on the second space: on the other hand a shelf with multi-socket is at your disposal to recharge your mobile devices, towards the sink room.

With the tourist office of the Mille Étangs, electric bikes can be rented and delivered to the site.
Campfire (place provided for this purpose, wood is provided at your discretion, just think of the guitar and marshmallows).
Our goats and chickens will also entertain you...

Other things

600m altitude and continental climate: the summer days are often very hot and the night can be rather cool, so equip yourself accordingly! Please note that on the river banks, morning dew is abundant in all seasons.

On the two sites of the first space, stabilized for heavy vehicles with stones, it may be difficult or even impossible to install a canvas shelter (awning, additional tent...) by driving stakes into the ground.

The field is open from May 1 to September 30 (May, June and September: only on weekends from Friday to Monday).

The security conditions and the capacities of our filtration system do not allow us to offer you access to our pool.


Rules

Essentially, common sense... and good humor!
Access to the site without going through our gate: you are independent, no particular entry or exit times during your stay.

Nevertheless, a few rules are necessary, thought over time:

* Arrival times after 3 pm, departure times before 1 pm.
* Animals: our doggie is getting older and does not really accept other dogs... However, small dogs (max 15kg) are welcome if they are sociable with other animals (besides the dog there are also two cats, goats and chickens in the wild...). Please consult us if you wish to bring your pet ;)
* Use of the children's games under the supervision and responsibility of an adult, same thing for the games in the river.
* Campfire: it is a common place for all campers. Please supervise your children when a fire is lit.
* Tyrolean traverse accessible to children only (max 60kg), in July and August: the safety rules are explained to you once and the following uses are under your responsibility.
* Trout fishing in "no-kill", without barb.
* Use of gas: you can bring your own refillable bottles, we can also sell you a refill (references "campingaz" R901 - R904 - R907). Our cylinders are consigned and cannot be taken away, even if you do not finish them. Also it is sometimes possible to finish without expenses the gas left by the previous campers...

The site is large but we limit our capacity to 12 people for the well-being of all. Under certain conditions this capacity can be increased for the reception of a single group: consult us.

Families are welcome! 9€ per night for the first person, 7€ per night for the following persons of 13 years and more. Children from 4 to 12 years old : 5€ per night - Children under 4 years old : free.

  • For this stay, one word to start and summarize: exceptional! A naturally beautiful place, made magical by the facilities designed for our comfort. First of all, the stabilized site for our camping car, on the roadside but with so little traffic. The sanitary facilities are top notch, the campfire for a nice moment with the other campers by the river, the little quiet corners in the shade and cool even during the heat wave, the games for the children, the zip line !... and the kindness and availability of Josselin. We need a table, he brings it to us, we need a chair, ditto !... Thank you both for sharing this magnificent place with your visitors whom you know how to pamper. See you soon, because we will certainly come back to Fresse !

  • It's the fourth year we've come to enjoy our vacation and recharge our batteries at Stéphanie and Josselin's place. This place is a small corner of paradise which every year is improved, embellished,... we feel good there! Ideal with children (games, river, tyrolean, sanitary facilities/kitchen at the top,...), the whole charmed by an incredible welcome!
    As we say every time for 4 years now... it was not the last time we passed by Fresse!
    See you soon, and from the bottom of our hearts... Thank you!

  • It was so beautiful in Fresse! We actually only wanted to stay one night, but like last time, we stayed longer - it's always hard to leave! Thank you for all the good things you do for your guests - the good beer, the zip line, your adorable animals, your listening ear and your friendliness! We look forward to our next stop with you! Warm greetings from Janko too, he really enjoyed the time with his new four-legged friend!
    Best wishes,
    Anne, Jörg and the children

  • A lovely little site, the facilities are basic but this is all part of the charm. The site is complete with resident goats and chickens and on the banks of a small stream. Stephanie and Josselin are wonderful hosts.
    We loved our 3 days here.

  • Our (our short) stay in Stéphanie and Josselin's little paradise went very well, thank you again for the welcome, the setting and all the little details that make life easier !

  • Very good experience, nice place for kids.

  • We had a really great stay. Very nice owners. We will come back!

  • Third stay at Stéphanie and Josselin's, and certainly not the last! It is a real little corner of paradise. An ideal camping spot in a quiet area, along the river, everything is there to spend a great vacation, relaxing, and disconnecting from everyday life. The reception of the hosts is incredible, everything is perfectly maintained, and from year to year small details are always added to improve the life of the campers. With all my heart, thank you!!! And... see you again, for sure!

  • Very good welcome, perfect equipment for camping even in the pouring rain!
    The zip line was a bonus for the kids!
    The only thing missing was the sun ????

  • Beautiful place and very kind host. We really appretiated the room with sink wherebwe had our dinner on a rainy day.

  • Great stay!! Only one night but we could enjoy all that Josselin and Stéphanie propose! Their welcome was perfect :)
    I think we will go back for more nights and with friends !

  • A haven of peace, this is how I would summarize this weekend spent in Fresse. Everything was perfect : the setting, the welcome, the location. Thank you Stéphanie and Josselin. Hope to see you soon.

  • Thanks to you, great welcome, great setting, thanks for everything

  • I had a great weekend, the grounds are beautiful and very pleasant.
    The hosts were friendly, as well as the other homecampers!
    The facilities are clean and well maintained.
    It was my first experience of homecamping and I am very satisfied!

  • Stéphanie and Josselin are a very welcoming couple. Everything is planned to make you spend a pleasant stay in this small corner of nature. We will certainly come back soon enough to cross the board of the beautiful girls ???????? . Thank you to you 2. Friends JM and Yoyo ( JM On The Road )

  • Great reception, ground at the edge of a small river very sympathetic.
    The more, we are distributed with beers brewed by our host.

  • 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!!!
    Great...????

  • 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
