I like to meet people and have exchanges, travel through stories, present my region, my plantations, discuss environment....
That's why I prefer people who intend to stay a few days..... but there is an exception for cyclists who are a little less mobile.... I appreciate that travelers do not arrive late and tell me approximately their arrival time in order to be available for the reception (if possible before 7:30 pm in summer and before 6 pm in winter)

The setting

Land of about 1 hectare at 1,5 kilometers from the village (bakery, min U, doctors, pharmacy, physiotherapist,...).
For swimming there is the beach of Aresquiers 15km, the Plagette of Bouzigues 12km in the Etang de Thau, the nearest rivers (Herault) at 30 kilometers, and swimming pools in Cournonterral and Sète (15km).
The night remains night (no street lights), far from the small road, however I have some chickens, ducks, guinea fowls and a rooster.
There are trees, a vegetable garden cultivated permaculture style,...

The spots

there is shadow... but the earth turns around the sun, the shadow too.... to choose morning or evening shadow. NOTICE : NO MORE PLACE FOR CAMPING CAR IN JULY. Only tents

The sanitary facilities

there is a modest dishwasher and cold water, an outside shower without hot water....independent... just in case, you can ask for a hot shower at my home at times when I am there;... Cold water outhouse.....

The amenities

there can be a small gas stove on request, I can provide a minimum of cooking.
I can offer coffee in the morning not late
the electricity is in the caravan, it is possible to pull a small extension cord to recharge portable
I can eventually give up the caravan for a small supplement and momentarily if not occupied by my daughter who must spend a few days there

The activities

Beaches (15km, Sète 22km), Bouzigues 12km étang de Thau, Mèze 15km étang de Thau, ideal for the little ones, canoeing 30 to 40 km, horseback riding (several within a radius of 20km), donkey rides -for children only, adults walk by pulling the donkey (3km, 8e the half -hour), conyoning by a DE instructor who comes to pick you up and bring you back ic (45 euros)....acrobranche at 15km, and then ballads and visits to Sète Monpeller...etc etc nature animations with CPIE...

Other things

There is only one place for Camping Car, already FULL for CC in July. A few places for tents, preference for stays of a few days. Thank you


We are in the scrubland, it was dry, it is very dry....
No BBQ and extreme caution with cigarettes, candles...etc....
I have chickens, ducks and guinea fowls in freedom... so close the gate behind you when you enter or leave at the time you want. If you come, (especially if it's for one night only) call me to tell me (roughly) the time of your arrival..... I don't spend all day on the ground -thanks.
Thank you for respecting the selective sorting (yellow garbage can for recyclables, food waste for the chickens, glass to be taken away and deposited in the containers made for, and the brown garbage can for the rest...THANK YOU

Land & setting
  • I spent 5 weeks on Thierry's plot.
    Positive points = large plot, good location not far from shops, 20 mn from the Aresquiers beach and 30 mn from Montpellier. Thierry is accommodating, friendly and likes to talk about his garden.
    Negative points = tent not sufficiently protected from intense climatic variations (sun, wind, rain, storms), no hot water (showers when it's not yet too hot, it stings! and washing up in cold water for 5 weeks is a pain!), toilets and kitchen area to be cleaned by the collective, not clean at the beginning of June and the worst for me was the neighbors' dogs and the surrounding packs that barked every night and prevented me from sleeping.
    My conclusion, nice in my opinion for short stays because cheap and well located, but too limited comfort for me on a long term basis.

  • Thank you Thierry for your welcome. Bonne continuation à vous.

  • This is the second time Thierry has welcomed us. He's always considerate, and the site is invigorating and conducive to friendly encounters. We can't wait to come back!

  • Great experience, Thierry is a very friendly person who is open to all discussions and present for people who come to his property.
    I really recommend him

  • Thierry is a nice guy with a big yard

  • It was nice to hang out with Thierry for a bit. He gave me some advice on what to see and it was very beautiful, especially the beach! All in all it was a very relaxing day/night I had, I would recommend it!

  • We spent 5 very pleasant days. A place located in the middle of nature, quiet, absolute calm, rest, respect for the environment.
    Thierry is very friendly and attentive, asking every day if everything's all right, if there's any particular need... He also gave advice on places to see and visit, taking into account our personal opinions.
    We will gladly return. If I don't promise, I know the address is registered and the intention is there. Best regards Thierry, and bone suite. Vincent

  • Thierry is a host who respects everyone's freedom and is always available. I recommend him.

  • Good stay, Thierry is pleasant to talk to and loves nature. Quiet location.

  • Very welcoming host.
    Very good advice for visiting the surrounding area.
    Shade at the foot of the cypress trees. Dzns this hot region cedt very pleasant.
    The great luxury of home camping: a real toilet and a small kitchenette. The cold shower is more than pleasant after a day on the beach or sightseeing. Thank you Thierry, it will be a pleasure to visit you again.

  • Thanks to Thierry for his welcome. He is a very nice person. The land is in the countryside. You should not look for luxury but rather authenticity. Not recommended for people who are too fussy and recommended for those who are looking for simplicity!

  • First experience with Home Camper. Very well received by Thierry, who advised me on places to visit. Beautiful olive tree under which I took my meals.

  • Thierry is a very warm and welcoming host. Your cc should not be too big, but "normal" VW Bulli size is no problem. If you want to shower, write Thierry beforehand so that he can prepare. Enjoy your stay.

  • Thierry is a very welcoming host. I only spent one night in this quiet and peaceful place but I will renew this experience with pleasure and probably for more time.

  • it was brief we stayed only one night .... but a beautiful place in the peace, a super reception of Thierry, we had what we wanted, all it is well passed in a beautiful region

  • Super at Thierry's place nothing to say very peaceful place my son also loved it I recommend!
    And Thierry is very friendly
    We will come back

  • Thierry is very discreet and the proposed environment of this parking is calm. I recommend this owner.

  • Need to sleep in a quiet place not far from Bouzigues (Etang de Thau) for family stay. Perfect ground to sleep in my equipped utility. Calmness assured.
    Thierry is friendly. Very good welcome

  • Thierry is very welcoming. He likes to share a coffee, and to make known the beautiful things of his region, geographical and human, in which he is involved. Thanks to him, I was able to participate in the Palabrasives, an alternative festival of art and culture in Villeneuve-lès-Maguelone, to see the Pointe courte in Sète... He helped me to set up and dismantle... I love the city of Montpellier!

  • I spent an excellent stay in Cournonsec, Thierry is very attentive and caring with his guests and especially very accommodating, it was very pleasant to exchange with him I recommend

  • Thank you for your welcome Thierry. A very nice person, smiling, helpful. He gave us a lot of ideas about our stay. To be recommended.

  • Great experience! Thierry is very welcoming and gave us a lot of information and good tips.
    Back to nature, very pleasant, the toilets and the shower are simple but clean. We had a great time, (thanks again for the figs). I recommend :)

  • Very good reception at Thierry's, moreover the framework is very pleasant....perfect therefore .

  • Great first experience on homecamper! Thierry, thanks for the warm welcome and for sharing your local knowledge and stories. And thank you for the late night bread and cheese snack! The garden is lovely and peaceful, especially in the morning, with lots of good spots to pitch a tent. It has everything you might need including a loo, communal cooking area, shower and guineafowl. If you come in the right season the figs are excellent.
    Would highly recommend!
    Thanks a bientôt

  • Thank you to Thierry for his welcome and his sympathy... We stayed 1 month and our daughter loved to be with Thierry's chickens and ducks.
    The setting is very nice, just a lack of shade on some pitches which is felt during periods of heat wave.
    An authentic place in the middle of nature that we recommend especially for the sympathy of Thierry.

  • Nice stop at Thierry's who takes care of his place and was able to present us a pistachio tree or peanut shoots. It was a bit quick but very pleasant with this unexpected rain!
    Hope to see you again,
    Emilie Gustavo and the boys.

  • Authentic...

    Thierry knows how to welcome.
    With a very advantageous price, you can enjoy his land which reminds us of the distant American lands of certain films.
    A nature side that will please the purists.

    Thierry knows how to be attentive without being invasive.
    He will advise you on many points.
    I will come back.

    PS no mosquitoes for us.

    2 nights 2 adults.

  • We had an excellent stay at Thierry's place.
    The place is peaceful, rural, authentic and Thierry is very welcoming and caring.

  • Great stay at Thierry's, a great host, a great place, in short a great Homecamper, we loved our camping with him, everything is functional and pleasant, thank you again to him for everything ????

  • Very nice moment with Thierry.
    The sites are very good and everything is functional.
    The hospitality is there, everything went well.
    I can only recommend it.

  • Pleasant place and restful stay, Thierry is attentive and benevolent. I recommend

  • Very pleasant stay. Atypical host, very nice and welcoming.

  • Very relaxing and soothing stay (that I extended ^^)! The spots to land on Thierry's land are numerous and he will know how to show you around when you arrive! Thanks for sharing :)

  • Thank you very much for this nice welcome!

  • I had a very pleasant stay with Thierry who is very welcoming, he takes care of his place. I will come back with pleasure

  • Thierry is very welcoming, helpful and very kind. The place is very pleasant and quiet. Thierry will not hesitate to give you all the necessary information about the area if you need it. I highly recommend Thierry.

  • A beautiful and peaceful place, very well located to discover the region, many activities around and a host who took care of our well-being, with good advice and pleasure to share...
    Thanks to him for this week spent

  • I was very well received by Thierry, a really nice and interesting man with a knowledge that he will not hesitate to share with you especially concerning permaculture. I went there with my tent and in his garden, Thierry arranged a kitchen space with dining room, a toilet, a shower, everything is there to feel like at home. I was able to discover the area with my bike, this one is really worth the detour. You will find buses at 25-30min walk from Thierry's house, in Montbazin or in Gigean. In short, if you want to live a great human experience and/or discover the Herault region, come and stay at Thierry's, it's the perfect place!

  • First experience for us and we are delighted. Thierry is a great host who welcomes us with a lot of kindness! Super setting in the middle of the garrigue, calm and serenity are the key words of our stay. Thank you!!!

  • A perfect stay, but much too short!!!
    The place is very nice, in full nature. Chickens, guinea fowls, roosters and other turtle doves roam freely, and cohabit with us humans.
    Thierry pays particular attention to the vegetable garden, and at the time I was there was busy planting trees of all kinds.
    Exchanging with him was a real pleasure, he has a lot of knowledge that he will gladly share with anyone who wants it.
    Compost, gardening... ecology... are subjects that interest him, and that he shares, but without dogmatism.
    In short: a real blow of heart for Thierry and his small corner of paradise.

  • Great welcome, Thank you!

  • Thank you for your kind welcomeThierry.
    It's a pity we had to listen to our stay, with regret, for family reasons. It was a pleasure. See you soon.

  • Sorry for this late notice!
    Our 3rd stay at Thierry's was a delight, and even if the weather made us a few jokes what does it matter! We did not have time to get bored!
    We still discovered new places and observed new insects and animals. We went back to our favorite spots, our favorite little merchants and shared moments of laughter and conviviality with our host and the other campers.
    And then the end of the vacation came too fast!
    We didn't have time to do everything and go everywhere we wanted!
    Only one solution : come back next year of course ! ????
    See you soon Thierry, thanks for everything !

  • Very good stay.
    To be done again.

    A real tourist guide ????????
    We will come back with pleasure and highly recommend it !
