Rules

- No animals on the property, we have a cat that is not very social with other 4-legged friends...
- No "big" vans, camping cars, trailers, tiny houses and other shelters of any kind (the reasons: the comings and goings on the land are harmful to your neighbors and to the "rutted" land, the passage under the trees is impossible because of the branches, there is a bridge which does not support heavy loads).
- Maintain cleanliness on the ground, in the sanitary facilities, WC.
- Respect the calm and the rest of the neighborhood.
- Parking at the entrance of the site: the places are not marked, be respectful of other users.
- Circulation is forbidden on the bivouac.
- Stay vigilant, the wooded area remains a "dangerous" place for children.
- Use a reasonable amount of sawdust for the dry toilets.
- Bring your own toilet paper.
- Bring shower gels and other "ecological" soaps for your toilets.
- Use a reasonable amount of water and do not waste water for showers and toilets, think of your neighbors...
- Respect the selective sorting of your waste, containers are placed at your disposal.
- Respect the privacy of your guests and your neighbors.
- Do not make fire on the ground other than on the unique barbecue put at your disposal.
- As the site is prone to fires, we ask smokers to smoke near the barbecue and to throw the butts in the ashtray provided for this purpose.
- Naturist friends (if there are any), thank you to warn us beforehand so that we can define a discreet but decent place.
- Bring your anti-mosquito products, there are some years as in many French regions (we are in the middle of nature).
- You can have your meals together on the tables and benches at your disposal, without disturbing the peace of the place and obliging your hosts to take certain strict measures.
- Your hosts are at home above all, they welcome you as best as possible, they are not available at will, nor will they be your servants... It is up to each one to assume his own tasks in the respect of each one...

  • Superb experience at Estelle and Denis' who installed everything on the site in the middle of the woods so that the campers could be comfortable: shower, dry toilets, fridge, access to electricity to recharge the phones... we were even able to enjoy the zucchinis in the garden kindly offered by Denis! To do without hesitation.

  • Super thank you very much for your welcome

  • Beautiful stage during our bicycle tour. Denis with the small care even came to seek us with bicycle. We warmly recommend his land and the cider that he concocts! Thank you

  • Simply perfect,

  • Very good welcome and very pleasant and quiet setting. The large covered table for meals is very practical. The hut with the services (kettle, fridge, garbage cans, etc.) also. The shower would gain to be more spacious and a little hidden. We cannot change there to make a toilet with a basin which is a little bit a pity when the weather is fresh, that the solar shower did not heat and that we would have liked to be able to wash with a basin and hot water in a little hidden space.

  • I loved my stay with Estelle and Dénis. They are very generous and their place has a lot of charm!

  • Very nice family welcome
    Pleasant setting in a wood
    Tranquillity and security guaranteed
    Discretion assured
    Thank you

  • Thanks to Estelle and Denis for their availability and their very nice welcome. I spent a restful night in the middle of the pines, and discovered a nice place. I'll be back ;)

  • A very warm welcome and good advice for eating and visiting the area. The site is very well located to radiate.
    One wiped out a very beautiful storm in the evening. I really thank Denis to have proposed us, if we needed it, and this whatever the hour of the night, to take refuge at their place to sleep... Fortunately we did not need it!
    We also tested with Estelle a session of Reiki which brought us a very appreciable appeasement ???????? after the tensions of the confinement...
    Summary equipment (we expected solar panels for the shower but it is more roots! You have to like cold water but you get used to it very well !!! ) which correspond well to the spirit of the site which wants to be wild.
    An evening proposed by Estelle and Dénis with the fishing of the day : what could be better ??!!
    I recommend ????????

  • Nice meeting of lovely people

  • You will find all the essentials (and much more ???? !) to discover the treasures of the region. Estelle and Denis are warm and open people, who offer enriching discussions. The place is welcoming and functional.
    To book without hesitation!

  • Super !

  • For our first experience of gamping we were spoiled.
    A very nice welcome, a warm and family atmosphere.
    Denis and Estelle know how to put you at ease in this quiet and beautiful environment.
    A big thank you for the Breton specialties aperitif, accompanied by its mini concerto bagpipes!
    Very nice meetings during this stay.
    We recommend without hesitation.

  • Thanks to Estelle and Denis! We escaped for a three days weekend and at their place, it was a great time (beaches, hiking, biking in the forest, etc.). Denis regaled us on Saturday evening by playing the bagpipes, great classics (hymns, amazing grace!!). Unforgettable. The stay was too short to enjoy the RAIKI with Estelle but... we will come back !!! Thierry and Laure

  • Very warm welcome at Estelle and Denis who did everything to make our stay pleasant, and helped our friends with their broken down car.
    I highly recommend staying with them ????

  • Nice welcome.
    Site in adequacy with my wishes for a bivouac in road tripe biker.

    Beware of mosquitoes.

  • Great welcome from Estelle and Denis : it's really a luxury camping ;-)
    only drawback : the ticks... but with a tick remover and a little vigilance it's manageable...
    We will keep the address for a next time !

  • Great welcome. Simple but well maintained restful setting.
    To recommend without hesitation.
    Philippe

  • Good experience! Estelle and Denis were very friendly.

  • Thank you Denis and Estelle for your warm welcome, we spent two nights in their little forest in the quiet. And the region is beautiful, very nice beaches in the area. Thanks again for everything! We highly recommend it !

  • A very good first experience of Gamping ! Denis welcomed us very well, the place is quiet, well equipped with very beautiful beaches around. I recommend it !

  • Very nice welcome from Denis who accepted our reservation at the last minute. The place is peaceful, in the middle of the forest and apart from the house. You will have access to dry toilets, a solar shower, a water point for washing dishes and a shed with a fridge and electricity. Don't hesitate to pitch your tent, it feels good!

  • Sleeping in a forest is pleasant with the sympathy of Estelle and Denis.

  • Since the beginning of our correspondence, Estelle and Denis have been wonderful hosts. Don't hesitate for a second to stop by and enjoy their beautiful wooded grounds and their generous Breton hospitality!

  • Estelle and Denis are two beautiful people with whom one wants to share.
    Their wooded place visited by deer is a haven of peace beautifully arranged.
    Our hosts love their region and make us want to discover it with the many activities that revolve around the sea.
    Thank you to both of you.
    PS: Denis your cider is excellent, put us a bottle aside for next time ☺.

  • A great first Gamping experience! Thanks to you for your welcome! Estelle and Denis have thought of everything to allow us to fully enjoy nature in their beautiful park, we can't wait to come back and camp! See you soon.

  • The grounds and facilities provided for gamers are exceptionally well thought out. We were only able to spend one night but we will be back for more as soon as possible. Estelle's welcome is more than warm, I recommend it 200%!

  • A nice meeting with Estelle and Denis, a harmonious and very welcoming couple. A "semi-wild" campsite, in the middle of the forest, lulled at night by the tawny owl and the deer, woken up by a woodpecker, finally the opportunity to find a real connection with nature. Thank you, we will definitely come back!
