Hello, my first name is Gilbert, I will be 74 years old. I live alone in my old Vosges farmhouse at an altitude of 700 m in the middle of nature, with a view I never tire of... I am someone who likes to meet and exchange with respect for others. My farm is renovated in the respect of the traditional architecture, combining simplicity and comfort.
Close to the highest village of the department at almost 900 m, the Haut du Tôt and its now famous photo exhibition "Les sentiers de la photos".
You will also be at 10/15 mn from the lake of Gérardmer and 35/40 mn from the Schlutch pass, gateway to Alsace and its vineyards...
You will be able to leave on foot, by road bike or mountain bike without having to take your vehicle... It's good for your form and our common planet.
I am also surrounded by good restaurants, without unnecessary luxury.

For your information, I also rent a guest room, from 1 to 6 persons.

Land & setting
  • What to say, everything was perfect, Gilbert is very welcoming, its location is magnificent, the view is splendid, breakfast very copious, impeccable sanitation, nothing to say, we will return with our eyes closed.

  • Ideal caravanning (for caravans that are high enough on legs and manageable...).
    A perfect peace, a bath of nature, a charming host: what more could you ask for?

  • Gilbert is super nice and attentive to his guests. Very quiet location with great view!!!

  • Many thanks to Gilbert for his welcome. A magnificent place, in the peace with a splendid sight and a charming and attentive host. We will come back with great pleasure!

  • We had a fabulous stay at Gilbert's. Thank you

  • Gilbert is a lovely host, friendly and caring, unforgettable for me this first adventure in my van in the middle of a giant meadow and filled with daffodils, I followed the advice of Gilbert for a hike of 16km.The calm of this place and a pure happiness.Thank you Gilbert, I will return

  • Gilbert's warm and friendly welcome for our first trip in the Vosges. Shower well appreciated at the end of a fresh night in the car. And as a bonus, good recommendations and addresses, as shown by the munsters that perfumed our kangoo the following days! Hope to see you again, this time in good weather! Léa & François

  • Gilbert is a wise and very interesting man, good talker as well as discreet - depending on the taste of the consumer.
    I booked 2 nights with my tent, but in the end I decided to stay another 2 nights, so that gives you a good idea of how good my stay was ????. Too bad for the rain because otherwise I would have stayed a little longer.
    His neighbors and friends are also very cool, I enjoyed with them good moments and I thank them, especially Gilbert for making me feel at home.
    It is important to know that in addition to land for tents and campervans, it offers two beautiful rooms with style and comfort, which was a great relief for me, in case of bad weather.
    The breakfast is generous, filled with local and organic products of very good quality.
    The place is beautiful! No light contamination at all, and pure experience to be in the middle of nature breathing its smells.

    No doubt about it! Come to Le Tholy chez Gilbert!

  • I'm sure I'll be back, for many reasons.
    Gilbert is a remarkable host. His place is magical. How can you feel good and happy in such a short time? By meeting Gilbert and spending beautiful nights listening to the songs of nature.

  • I had booked at Gilbert's to make friends discover the home camper, they were delighted by the place, and very much appreciated the welcome.
    I recommend

  • Thank you Gilbert for your warm welcome! Magnificent view with a very relaxing setting! We recommend this place!

  • In August 2021, we slept one night with our van and dog at Gilbert's house. Our host was very welcoming, while remaining "discreet". As we were in "total personal autonomy", we did not test the "facilities", but everything looked very good. The environment is fabulous and lends itself to magnificent walks.

  • We had a wonderful stay with Gilbert. The view over the countryside from our campsite was breathtaking. Despite our lack of French (unfortunately!) we were able to communicate well with Gilbert. We will always be happy to come back!

  • Gilbert is a very welcoming, warm host. He cares about making his visitors feel as comfortable as possible. A real pleasure to talk with him over a coffee. Great view on the valley, quiet place with all amenities. A big thank you to Gilbert for his welcome and his suggestions for visits in the region.

  • Gilbert is very welcoming and helpful.
    Beautiful environment in the nature.
    Thank you.

  • An authentic and friendly stay in the middle of nature with a magnificent view Mr Gilbert is a friendly person with a big heart the Normans thank you again

  • Gilbert is a super host. The view is amazing. Despite our language barrier everything went smoothly

  • Very nice place and host and especially very accommodating. Thank you Gilbert for helping us to have a pleasant stay despite the weather.
    There is a slight slope for the tent but we are not experienced campers and there was probably a better solution... The view, the sunsets, the deer, the wild blueberries, the market from the top of the hill...Just perfect.

  • Thanks to Gilbert for his welcome, his domain is magnificent, very pleasant host and full of humor and generosity.
    Thank you Gilbert, excellent moment in your company.
    See you next time

  • We had a very relaxing stay with Gilbert. He is a super host. Highlight was my observation of two young deer fighting with each other in the meadow next to my bus early in the morning.
    Next time I hope I can speak better French so I can exchange more in the local language.
    Thank you Gilbert!

  • Passed for a night at Gilbert, warm welcome and very good advice

  • Very friendly host with a great view

    I strongly recommend for anyone who wants to discover the Vosges in a quiet place

  • Very well received
    I recommend

  • We stayed at 3 HomeCamper destinations during our road trip, this one was by far the best! What a beautiful site in the middle of nature and what a friendly welcome. The pictures do the site justice: we were delighted and so were the kids. Nice walks accessible from the place. Gilbert's breakfast was delicious! Thanks for everything :-) Gilbert deserves the label "super host"!

  • A big thank you to Gilbert for the super friendly welcome!
    The view is magnificent and the breakfast was delicious and copious.
    To recommend without hesitation!

  • Beautiful moments spent in the high Vosges!
    Gilbert is a welcoming, pleasant and generous host who pushes the curiosity to any day remain curious!
    Very pleasant setting with a phenomenal view and fabulous sunset!
    We will come back!

  • It was a very nice stay with Gilbert ! A great pitch in a nice quiet area . Unfortunately the weather forced us to leave. Highly recommended !

  • Gilbert made us feel very welcome at his place and made sure that everything was going well during our stay.
    We had an excellent weekend in the quiet, with a magnificent view from our location in the middle of nature, and yet only a few kilometers from Gerardmer!
    The hello from the Vosges cows in the morning delighted the children.
    And thank you Gilbert for the little coffee we shared at the end of our stay...
    We also wish him all the success in his new project.
    Highly recommended!
    We will definitely come back!

  • Pleasant welcome, beautiful panorama, tranquility assured. Many hikes nearby, Gilbert will be there to advise you on your walks in the area. Recommended place if you are looking for calm and beautiful landscapes.

  • Nothing to say really excellent. Superb landscapes. Over 5 days we were able to visit a small part of the Vosges region. Of a kindness and with the small care Gilbert still thank you.

  • Beautiful land, Gilbert is a very welcoming host. It was a pleasure to exchange with him.

    We loved the view when we woke up as the sunset. The environment is clean and perfect.

    We hope to come back one day.

  • Gilbert, very friendly. Lovers of hiking, mountain biking, if you are looking for calm and nature, do not hesitate, I recommend, the surroundings are great.

  • Good night spent at Gilbert's, he is very accommodating: the conveniences are accessible at night and we were not spoiled by the weather, he then offered to move our 4x4 so that we are not under the tree anymore
    Very good reception of his part, I recommend it to you!

  • Dear Gilbert, the stay with you was very pleasant. A beautiful and quiet place in the nature. Thank you for your friendly and non-intrusive way of allowing us to use the toilet and shower. We absolutely recommend you. Sincerely, Christian and Anika

  • A very pleasant weekend, spoiled by the weather; a very nice green and quiet place.
    A warm welcome from Gilbert (and his wife) who carefully prepared our location and invited us to take the homemade aperitif, made by him and of high quality! ...
    In short, we can only recommend this place !
