After multiple experiences of road-trip and camping in family throughout the world and rich of marvellous memories of campfires and improvised stopovers, we open to you the doors of our small paradise.
Our project has been delayed a bit due to the confinement, and we are not yet able to offer you all the comfort elements we would have liked.
Nevertheless, after these long months of isolation, if you need like us to recharge your batteries and reconnect with conviviality, we will welcome you in all simplicity, with kindness and warmth, at a very low price for a stopover, a night, a weekend or more...
In the middle of nature, in the middle of ponies and llamas, come and recharge your batteries,
Welcome to Le Monde de Bliss !
Former cheese farm, in the middle of nature at the end of a dead end, our property extends over 8 hectares of meadows bordered by hedges surrounding a stone building dating from 1825.
We settled there 15 years ago, first for weekends and school vacations, then we could not leave it any more...
Here live many wild and domestic animals.
In the middle of the Connemara ponies, you will pitch your tent.
If you are lucky, in spring, you will see the birth of a foal or the first steps of a cria ...
In addition to our ponies and llamas, you may see deer at sunrise, or fox cubs playing in the meadows.
Warm in your comforter, after admiring a magnificent sunset, you will contemplate the stars on summer evenings and fall asleep to the cry of the owl ...
Here, everything is order and beauty ......
Little noise, no light pollution, nature as far as the eye can see...
Depending on the season, the weather and what you are looking for, you can set up wherever you want: near the house for more comfort, near the camp for conviviality around the wood fire, or high up in the grasslands, as close to nature as possible, isolated as if you were camping in the wild, in the spirit of bivouac.
It's up to you, here social distancing is not a problem! In summer, after the haymaking, the large meadow of 3 hectares offers an almost infinite space where you will be alone in the world!
The sanitary facilities
You will have access to a dry toilet in a dedicated shed, conventional toilets are also available in the owners' house if needed.
A solar shower is installed near the caravan, the water temperature is of course depending on the sunshine!
Water points are accessible outside near the caravan.
For the sanitary facilities, we will provide you with environmentally friendly products

If needed, it is possible to connect to the WiFi of the house.

Less than an hour from Rouen, Amiens, Dieppe or Beauvais, both isolated from the outside world and close to the centers of activity, you will stay in a haven of peace.
In the heart of the Pays de Bray, taste the local products (Neufchâtel cheese in the forefront, but not only ...) and discover the Norman countryside, on foot, on horseback, by bike.

Once in Dieppe, you will not be far from Varengeville and its marine cemetery where Georges Braque is buried, Veules les Roses and its cressonnières and the smallest river in France. Continuing along the Alabaster coast, discover Fécamp and the Benedictine, Etretat and its famous needle, then Le Havre and the hanging gardens.
Cross the magnificent Normandy bridge and you will arrive in Honfleur which deserves a romantic stroll, a little further, Deauville, Cabourg and the whole Nacre coast.
Inland, you can visit two of the most beautiful villages in France: Gerberoy, less than 40 minutes away, or Lyons la Forêt surrounded by its magnificent beech forest.
Golf enthusiasts will find their happiness on the green of Saint Saens before having a drink or lunch at the Entrepote which we recommend.
In 45 minutes, you will be in the heart of Rouen, the city of a hundred steeples. You will visit the cathedral, illuminated every summer with a sound and light show, the Joan of Arc memorial, stroll through the narrow streets of Old Rouen and its craftsmen's shops, in the "rue du Gros" and its shop windows or along the quays where the Rouen Armada is held every 5 years (the next one will be held in June 2023)
In the immediate vicinity, Forges les Eaux, a former spa town, is an active little town where you will find all the necessary shops, bars, restaurants, banks as well as sports facilities (swimming pool, Dojo etc...) etc... Take a walk around the lake and in the Epinay wood, have a drink at the Grand Hotel bar, relax at the Spa or try your luck at the Casino Barrière. Enjoy the races at the Mauquenchy racecourse on meeting days.

Very good reception and huge ground. The llamas are very nice! :-)
Our stay at Valerie's (although short) was perfect!
The property is immense and splendid, the reception point (caravan, solar shower and dry toilets) is charming and of a rare cleanliness, the presence of animals is top (big blow of heart for the llamas) and Valerie is very generous and pleasant. Go there without hesitation !
Fantastic stay! Everything was perfect, the place is magical, the presence of animals is a real plus and Valerie's welcome is incredible! A big thank you, we will come back with pleasure!
A big thank you to Valerie and her family for this authentic and warm welcome. A beautiful meeting in a soothing place. The llamas are adorable, the ponies magnificent
Thank you for this small Week end of disconnection.
Perfect stay at Valerie's !
We were welcomed like friends.
The children (6, 7 and 8 years old) enjoyed a wonderful setting, animals (horses, llamas, peacocks and dog) within reach. They accompanied our host when we had to feed them and change the straw.
Valerie also gave us valuable advice on activities to do nearby.
The children did not want to leave. I promised we would come back.
My stay was just perfect! Valerie and all her family were very kind and generous. They were with our small care.
We spent a very good time around the fire. They offered us a lot of things such as Neuchâtel cheese.
We will return to this magical place one day. And I will visit this family and the animals who are more beautiful than the others.
See you soon!
Waaaauw what an amazing stay with Valerie! We arrived in the rain and could stay inside for a bit, she offered us coffee or tea. In the evening we barbecued together with the family and other hosts. It was so cosy and fun! The animals are so sweet as well and all adopted. We could feed them abd they are happy and free. It's amazing how lovely this place is. There is also a nice, cosy gipsy caravan where you can hide for the rain, have electricity and comfort ???? thank you very much for this experience ????
A place where you feel like you are alone, in the middle of nature.
What a joy to let our daughters discover camping, in the middle of nature, among animals. They loved it, especially since Valerie is adorable and did not hesitate to please them: they could take care of the animals, had a riding lesson on Gygy's back and even spent a night in the trailer.
Despite the storms, we had an incredible experience and we leave with incredible memories!
What a joy to have been able to share an evening around the campfire with Valerie and another family.
We will certainly come back ;-)
We felt very welcome. After a good description of the place, we found the long driveway. With a view of nature, llamas and horses. It woke up with the sound of birds. Clean facilities. Highly recommended.
