It's actually great. Thank you. The nights are cold but I was allowed to sleep in the shelter. That's great. I am so happy. A beautiful region and more than welcoming hosts. Thank you, thank you. For everything. For the visit of the cellar and the quietness of the place. For your soothing calm and for the wonderful night away from the cold. I recommend it. This site is wonderful. I continue the road and wish you the best. Denis
This couple is really nice and new to the Home Camper experience. The location couldn't be better, they are right above the troglodytes of Turquant (very cute village). The land is enough to set up for a weekend. However, I think the price may be a little too high for the land and amenities.
François and brigitte are very kind and helpful people...
And if you are good you will even have a surprise ????????
For a first year, it was absolutely great. The view is breathtaking. As hosts, you are the image of this beautiful region full of hospitality and culture. We had a great time visiting the troglodyte and your garden. To do again soon. A very good continuation in the continuation of your work.
Aymeric and Claire
After reading the reviews, we expected a good reception. It was beyond what we expected! We were pampered by François and Brigitte; hosts who like to share their love of the region while remaining discreet...we will come back, for sure and you are welcome in Normandy????
Flo and Marie
A well laid out plot of land, access to electricity and an always clean bathroom.
The view is superb and the environment calm, quite representative of the Loire Valley.
François has the art of entertaining, a unique meeting and private visit in the heart of the troglos that will not fail to seduce you.
Unique and unforgettable moments in the company of Brigitte and François who showed us their troglo restaurant and shared their memories and their life with us.
We felt like family with them right away and we think we will stay that way.
See you soon in Vendée ????
The location in the orchard is very pleasant, with direct access to the plums. We had a very good night.
Very nice plot of land, vast and not overcrowded! With electricity and access to the sanitary facilities in the house below. As a bonus, the children enjoyed the plums, and we visited the troglodyte cellars which are being renovated...we only stayed there for one day but it makes us want to come back. Courage for your project !
We had a pleasant stay at Brigitte and François. Last step of our family trip (children 3 and 7 years old + small dog), where we were warmly welcomed. Everything was set up so that we could make the most of our stay (garden table, plancha, loan of small fridge in this period of heat wave). The ground gives on a magnificent landscape. We particularly appreciated the small visit of the cellar by François (whom we thank again). You just have to go down to the bottom of the ground to be plunged in the atypical universe of troglodytes. The land is ideally located near Saumur. Our children particularly appreciated the area! In short ... A successful stay ! Thanks again ;)
We were very well received to spend these 4 days with our family, the location is perfect, the room at our disposal as well, we would return with pleasure!
Very nice place at the edge of the Loire.
Very good welcome and beautiful discovery of the region.
Your host will know how to guide you for your tourist escapades.
Soothing location under the fruit trees.
Very nice experience of Gamping. The place is out of the ordinary and the hospitality flawless. We recommend it without hesitation, especially for cyclists passing through.
A pleasant stay. The site is beautiful, shady. The plums are delicious. The welcome was very warm. Thank you very much
An extraordinary stay!
Brigitte and François communicate immediately their passion for troglodyte and we will never forget our stay in a tent with them: what a panorama when we wake up and when we go to bed! We will come back, as promised!
Sincerely, Marina, Charly and the girls...who loved the site!
Superb welcome from hosts who are passionate about their exceptional heritage! Charming people who care about the well-being of their guests. We will certainly come back.
Very good reception of François who made us the visit of his troglo cellar. Always with the small care for his hosts. The place offers a magnificent view on the Loire river.
Very nice land and very friendly welcome. We had a very pleasant stay with our family.
We appreciated the hospitality of our hosts. We will come back again.
Brigitte and her husband welcomed us very warmly and gave us many recommendations for visits. Large fenced and wooded lot ideal with young children (3, 4, 6 and 7 years old). Nice view on the valley. Access to a bathroom with clean toilet below.
We will gladly return to continue exploring this beautiful region. Thanks to you both!
We had an excellent stay with François and Brigitte who were particularly attentive and available and gave us a warm welcome! We recommend their address ideally located in a magnificent site, near the beautiful villages and sights along the Loire.
Good welcome, very nice. Great view on the Loire valley and lots of things to visit.
Jx and Regine
So many good surprises!
Brigitte and François were very welcoming and available. We spent a night in a tent lent by them in an idyllic environment!
The visit of the cellar made by François perfectly concluded this short stay.
Thanks to both of them and see you soon we hope
Myriam and Léna
A first experience of camping at the inhabitant's place :) Our hosts were very nice, the site is ideally located on the hillsides to have a very nice view on the Turquant valley. If you are afraid to find nothing to eat in this pretty troglodyte village, there is a restaurant (Le Bistroglo) just below the site! Thank you for your welcome!
For our first experience in home camping, we were very well received by Brigitte and François. Visit of a troglodyte cellar, real nice surprise and thanks again for the aperitif... We will come back...
To find them, you just have to walk down the path and go to the second house ;-) a nice and generous welcome, a nice troglodyte visit and a cool drink in front of the landscape view. A perfect site for our camper, flat and with plums for dessert.
Nice experience with Brigitte and François, 3 nights stay, nice and quiet. The owners are listening and attentive to our requests. They are not stingy with their explanations. The land is not yet at its best, but that's not the main thing, the geographical situation and the view compensate. The plums are very good! We recommend this place.
An exceptional orchard for parking
a breathtaking view...
exceptional owners ... discreet and helpful
warm welcome ....
thank you for this stay.
Nathalie and david
Very welcoming and friendly hosts.
The place is perfect with a camper, very nice view, clean and very quiet.
A very good experience, Brigitte and François are very pleasant, listening, sincere in their steps of sharing
What more could you ask for when on top of that, the natural location offers a magnificent panorama...
We will come back to visit you ☀️
I recommend ++++
We particularly appreciated our stay with Brigitte and François, their kindness, their attention and their availability. They are a discreet couple who like to share and discover this beautiful place. Beautiful panorama from the field!
In spite of the rather special location in the Covid, we had a wonderful stay. We particularly appreciated the panoramic view of the place, the cherries in the garden, the impromptu concert and above all the kindness of our hosts and their love for the heritage.
Eva, Marie and Vincent
Such a truly beautiful place, our hosts kind and obliging. Warmest thanks to them.
