In love with nature, but also loving conviviality, we will welcome you in our small unpretentious campsite but in the calm and the open air.
We fell in love with this old mining town in the heart of the Auvergne many years ago while travelling through it in our motor home.
The friendliness of the old miners pushed us to acquire a second home, then to come and live here permanently when we retired.

The setting

The view on the Sancy from the high point of the village, the calm, the fresh air and the fresh water are assets that you will appreciate!

The spots

Unlimited pitches to guarantee a feeling of freedom on a flat terrain with a paved driveway for motor homes.
No size limit, just bring what you have...

The sanitary facilities

Sanitary facilities in a mobile home: a shower with hot water on request (1,50€) a sink and a washbasin are available from 8am to 10pm.

The amenities

We can provide the hikers and other cyclists with dishes, a barbecue and possibly basic elements for cooking (salt, pepper, sugar...). Electricity by extension cord on request (1,50€) and possibility to recharge cell phones.

The activities

Numerous nature activities in the immediate vicinity: fishing in ponds or in our 3 rivers.
Hiking or cycling (documentation available) or even superb motorcycle rides.

  • A big thank you to Didier and Sylviane for their welcome, kindness and discretion!
    We had a great stay with our caravan and our 2 children! Clean land with a clear view, the nights were very quiet. And the mobile home available to all comforted us well (shower, toilets, kitchen...).

  • Super reception! We were able to put our tents in a small shaded corner, to quench our thirst after our walk with a refreshing cucumber mint lemon water and to rest calmly before taking our road again! But it is especially the reception which we will retain and which will make us return to see Didier has this small village of Messeix and its fantastic landscapes!

  • We were very happy with our little stay at Didier's and his dear wife's. Very attentive and willing to make our stay as comfortable as possible, we were able to have everything we needed. A huge THANK YOU to you for your great kindness and your savoir vivre. See you soon; we highly recommend this place to our friends the campers!
