Come and discover life in a troglodytic dwelling and stay on our roof in the middle of the forest. It's a peaceful place to recharge your batteries, where flora and fauna are king. We're building up the campsite over time, improving comfort little by little. Ideal for touring cyclists, seasonal workers, nature lovers, ...
Nestling in the middle of the forest, you'll have a panoramic view over the countryside and fields, which is what makes this place so charming.
You'll need to climb above our house to reach the campsite.
Hiking nearby. The Loire River is just a few kilometers away. There's also a swimming pond in the neighboring village and a guinguette.
You'll have to climb (it's a bit of a climb!) up the hill above our cellars to get to the forest. All pitches are in the shade of trees, the terrain is not flat, but the pitches have been designed to be. We only accept small (or medium-sized) tents.
The sanitary facilities
An outdoor shower with hot water is available. There are dry toilets in the forest, as well as a sink for washing your hands and so on.
You must use natural soaps. We sell homemade soaps on site (2 euros).
A kitchen is available under a shelter, where you'll find a stove, cutlery and other cooking utensils. Gas is extra (3 euros).
There's no fridge or electric appliance, as we want to keep energy consumption to a minimum. You'll find coolers to keep your food cold, and we can put ice packs in our fridge.
Games and books are also available.
We also have 1 slackline and hammocks.
In the forest, you'll find solar panels for charging your phones.
The region is very popular with tourists, thanks to its many chateaux and troglodytic sites where you can step back in time, as well as the beautiful Loire River, a UNESCO World Heritage site, which lies nearby. You'll never be bored. We can provide you with brochures of nearby activities and IGN maps.
We value sharing, but respect each other's privacy.
We're always ready to help and advise.
There's a flour and bread mill 2 kilometers away.
You'll also find two restaurants serving fouées (a local specialty) a few kilometers away (Grézillé, Sarré, Saumur or Louresse Rochemenier).
The nearest shops are a 5-minute drive away.
We may not be there when you arrive. You'll then be able to settle in on your own.

Breakfast and brunch also available on reservation the day before (from 10€).
Free morning tea and coffee.

Top stay! Everything went very smoothly, and the location is absolutely stunning. The grounds are extremely well laid out and Tiffany is super accommodating.
A very warm welcome and an atypical place worth discovering for those who want to immerse themselves in nature. The facilities are well thought out and equipped (dry toilets and hot showers!) + a kitchen area + crockery and leaflets available as well as table/bench areas for meals. Really a lot of energy and deep values invested in this place.
Thanks also to Tiffany for the ice-bread exchange!
Very nice, quiet spot in the woods. We would have liked to enjoy the place a little more but the rain decided otherwise! Thanks a lot for the tips Tiffany and the discovery of fouées!
A restorative, unusual and well-appointed place. A wonderful stopover in the forest!
Très bon accueil.
Je ne suis resté qu'une nuit au calme.
J'ai pu prendre une douche chaude et chargé mes appareils électriques.
Parfait pour mon Road Trip motard
Great place, original and pleasant!
Tiffany was available, nice and welcoming
Nice place in the calm and cool to spend a good time.
Eric and sacha
A welcoming and atypical place and the owner very smiling!
A really nice place, in the middle of the forest, well equipped (dry toilets, hot outdoor shower, small sheltered kitchen) with small terraces and hammocks everywhere!
Don't be afraid of the climb, it's going up!
Very beautiful setting, perfect stay and more than friendly hosts.
Very good experience at the Trogloglo, atypical and very pleasant place
Excellent area of the campground, all pretty. Tiffany is very welcoming and remains at the disposal of her guests. We will certainly return there!
Very nice place and hosts, close to the Loire and the city of Gennes-Val-de-Loire. Small drawback for people who sleep in tents, installation on earth (no grass) so ground a little hard.
Hello! We had a very pleasant stay at "la trogloglo", welcomed by Priscillia, who listens well and is always available. The place is very pleasant, to take into account can be, the very long distance and in strong slope between the carpark and the tent (all at the bottom of wood to be quiet) especially under 35 in the shade...
Superb place in the middle of nature, flowers, a vegetable garden, small philosophical signs... Without forgetting an available and friendly host. In short, only happiness! The originality of the troglodyte house is not to be missed!
Thank you for the welcome!
Céline & Mathieu

Super.stay at the trogloglo.
Thank you Tiffany for the welcome and the breakfast.
The site is amazing!
A perfect night in an exceptional setting for all lovers of peace and nature!
Tiffany is a very warm and welcoming person like all the members of the small community living in the troglodytic dwellings!
The proposed facilities are simple but essential, harmoniously dispersed in this small piece of forest.
Thank you again for this little weekend, especially since there is no shortage of walks in the area.
We hope to return there!
