Welcome to a little corner of paradise at the door of Pau.

We will give you a simple and friendly welcome! There will be only you in our garden: we want you to feel almost at home!

Enjoy the garden any day of the year.

The setting

The garden of 3000 m² is enclosed and secured so that you can enjoy your stay with us. The configuration of the garden will allow you to keep your privacy.

Fruit and ornamental trees create shaded areas in different parts of the garden so that you can rest away from the sun.

We have 3 pullets and a rooster that roam freely.

The garden has a salt water swimming pool, 11m long with a depth between 1,10m and 1,50m. It is open all year round but is not heated: we can give you advice on how to get into the water easily in winter.

The garden is quiet, even if it is close to the ring road.
The shops are 10 minutes away from the house and the bus stop is in front of the house (Line 15). Lines 5 and 11 are 7 minutes away on foot.
We are close to the train station of Pau (10 min by car and 25 min by foot).
If you have a car, you can park it at our place.

We will be delighted to share moments with you! I speak a little English :-)

The spots

The pitch is free. Concerning the caravans, I only accept small sizes like "Eriba Puck" with dimensions close to 4m long and 1,80m wide.

The sanitary facilities

WC and shower are at the inhabitant's (see condition in other remarks).

Thank you for taking your shower before 11:30 pm and after 6:30 am, for special cases we can see together.

The amenities

Tables and chairs for eating outside are available free of charge (just leave the pitches clean)...

The barbecue is free if you don't use charcoal. Otherwise, 2€.

The summer kitchen is accessible in self-service with gas stove, electric oven, combined refrigerator/freezer, microwave, nespresso machine and dishes to share with us.
The kitchen is included in the package that you will find in the paragraph "other remarks". Soft drinks and coffee pods will be available at an extra charge.

Washing machine and dryer are available at an additional cost.

The activities

We offer many free activities at our place: swimming in the pool (see condition in "other remarks"), darts game (ask us), relaxation and rest in the garden with a 5/6 seats Jacuzzi Spa in supplement.

Around us, you can go hiking in the mountains or in the plain and go out on the Basque coast to fish, surf or simply cool off in the water.

As a sports leader, I offer Nordic Walking activities with the loan of sticks: outing on the banks of the Gave for 1h30 and gentle physical activities "Pilates for beginners/ Stretching/ Zen Body/ Relaxation" for 1h with the loan of equipment. Moreover, being a practitioner of well-being and energetic massage, I can offer you massages from 30min to 1h: a pure moment of relaxation! For all sports activities and/or massages and/or access to the Spa Jacuzzi: extra charge and please inform me the day before.

Other things

We will agree together on the time of reception, the proposed services and the complementary rates of your choice:

RATES FOR ACCESS TO EQUIPMENT: to be paid on the spot and in supplement.

Overnight stay in a camper (if you don't use our WC, shower and summer kitchen): please allow for a supplement of 5 €/person/night. The electricity and the swimming pool are included in this supplement.

Overnight stay in a tent or van not equipped with WC and shower: expect a supplement of 8€/person/night (electricity, water, WC, shower, summer kitchen, pool included in this supplement)

If you are completely autonomous and do not wish to use the comfort and equipment, 3 €/night/person for electricity.

An extension cord is available if needed.

Other services in supplement according to your needs:

Washing machine: 4€ with the product/laundry + possible drying in the machine for 4€ extra.

Tent rental (2 places) : 22 €/night in addition to the reservation price. Please bring your own mattress and comforter.

Access to the Jacuzzi 5/6 places : 20€ for 45 min solo or 30€ for duo (special price for home campers, because the price is not the same for my customers)

Breakfast : 6€/ person (tell me the day before)

Meal with us : 10€/person (tell me the day before)

Assiette Béarnaise (cold cuts and cheeses, home made bread with local flour) and home made bread/cheese with a glass of Jurançon (sweet white wine) or Pacherenc (dry wine) : 12€/person (tell me the day before).

Arrival after 4pm (to be agreed together) and departure before noon.


Read the ad carefully, it is very complete, especially the paragraph "other remarks". Indeed, what you pay on the site is only the reservation of the site after you will pay on the spot the access to the comfort, the services and the benefits (that will avoid you to pay too many expenses with the platform)

Thank you for respecting the cleanliness of the place and the inhabitants.

We do not smoke but we are tolerant as long as the homecampers are discreet and the butts are thrown in the trash. Smoking and eating in the pool area is not allowed!

If you have children, we ask you to be very careful as the pool has a submerged cover but no barrier.

Dogs are allowed as long as we discuss it beforehand as our animals are totally free outside and we want them to live their lives without being disturbed too much!


Possibility of breakfast (€6 / person)

I have been making my bread for over 25 years with flour from Pyrénées Farine in Serre Castet.
For breakfast, there is coffee, tea with or without milk, eggs from our hens, plain yoghurts, jams (bought or homemade), butter, sugar, homemade bread, oranges that you can squeeze as well as fruit to crunch and fresh croissant.

We discuss this the day before so that your breakfast will give you a good start to the day! In general, we have breakfast with you, except if there is a particular request (we know how to adapt to your needs).

Tent ready

A tent for 2 persons can be lent to you, you will have to assemble and disassemble it yourself (-6 min) and to return it clean.

/Come with your mattresses, your comforters and your flashlight.

  • My son and I were very grateful to pitch our tent in Valérie's garden. The owners were very welcoming and friendly. The set-up was very well planned with outdoor kitchen and easy access to shower and toilet in the house, and access to the very nice pool. My trip only allowed us to spend one night but I would definitely return to camp at Valerié's and explore this lovely area of France.
