Hello, my first name is Gilbert, I am 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 people, to exchange in the respect of each other. 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, door on Alsace and its vineyard... 30/35 mn from "Bol d'air" in La Bresse...
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.

Land & setting
  • Gilbert is a very nice host with an amazing garden. The stay was wonderful and the location is worth the ride! Only Google maps needs to update it's streets, coming from the west or south works while north east is very hard.

  • We had a very pleasant stay with Gilbert. We particularly appreciated the magnificent view of the valley from our camper and the dining room where he served us breakfast.
    He gave us good advices for walking in this region we fell in love with.
    He provided us with water and electricity.
    We will certainly come back.

  • Gilbert is a very friendly home camper with lots of conversation. The breakfast was very good and the view on the Tholy open.

  • Super stay at Gilbert's, at the top, nothing to complain about.
    Thank you for the welcome.

  • Mein Frau und ich hatten eine tolle Zeit an diesem wunderschönen Ort. Gilbert hat uns sehr herzlich und freundlich empfangen. All is best - we will go back again!

    My wife and I had a great time in this beautiful place. Gilbert welcomed us with great warmth and kindness. Everything is perfect - we will be back with great pleasure!

  • Even if we arrived a little late Gilbert knew how to welcome us in the best way.
    Breakfast on the terrace in the sun with a breathtaking view of Le Tholy. Thanks to Gilbert for his kindness and his sharing of tips about the Vosges region.
    See you soon!

  • Very good welcome from Gilbert, full of attention.
    To be recommended!

  • Beautiful view and a very nice and welcoming host. Perfect!

  • I had an excellent stay with Gilbert. Gilbert is a mine of information on his region; he is helpful, loves people, contact, exchanges but also knows how to leave the intimacy of his "guests".
    Thank you Gilbert.

  • Mr.Gilbert, a very nice host, very pleasant. An easy contact, very quickly appreciated. It is good to live with you.
    Not far from everything, very well placed for my part, a real experience in the middle of nature.
    I would come back as soon as possible in any case :)

  • We stayed 3 nights at Gilbert's place during our vacation in the Vosges. We loved this stay: Gilbert is very welcoming without ever being intrusive, his land is large and the view is magnificent, he gave us access to the sanitary facilities (shared with the B&B) which were great! We warmly recommend this place without hesitation!

  • very friendly host for all his guests.
    Only one good place for a mobilhome of 7m, the rest of the nice place is up- or downhill and you have to pick very carefully your place to be horizontally.
    The view and environment is super.

  • Very nice and friendly welcome, Gilbert took care of the size of my camping car because the access can be tricky. The view is splendid on the valley and the village. Beautiful ballades on the surrounding plateau. Beautiful stage

  • Gilbert is a very warm host, full of humor and kindness. We spent a very good and friendly evening with our friendly neighbors! Thanks again for all the sharing and generosity! If you book a night here, you will find peace and quiet, we recommend this place full of charm

  • The stay at Gilbert was very nice, the view magnificent, total tranquility and a wonderful breakfast!!A nice humorous host in addition

  • Gilbert is very attentive. In a superb setting, in the peace and quiet with a breathtaking view. A fresh, organic, abundant breakfast. Attention for the campers, there is only one flat place for a big tent near the electricity. Think of reserving it.

  • We spent a good evening in a quiet place with a great view. Sunset on the valley in more.
    Small place to recommend.

  • Gilbert is the friendliest and most helpful host I can imagine. Interested in sourdough? No problem, he knows someone who can tell you all about bread and the best mill. Are you interested in regional cheeses? His buddy will show you how it's done.
    The area we were at cannot be surpassed in terms of sunset quality and that's why we will definitely be back. Maybe for the mushroom season.

  • We spent a magnificent night alone in a meadow on the hillside with a view of the valley and the opposite side. The decor is simply sumptuous.

    We had the joy of meeting Gilbert, a welcoming host, devoted and full of values dear to the nomadic life in this beautiful region.

    Convenience level: toilets, shower and breakfast that we strongly recommend.
    Local products, organic,... a delight.

    We will keep the address for a next time!

  • Back to Gilbert's place with as much pleasure...a superb place to recharge...many walks around and always the view from this spot in the middle of nature...Superb!

  • Beautiful place, made exceptional by the presence of Gilbert !
    We were lucky to have the visit of deer during the sunset.
    Thanks again to Gilbert for his warm and caring welcome. We will come back for sure !

  • Gilbert is a very friendly person, and very hospitable. We really enjoyed camping for a whole weekend on his land. The setting was beautiful, a great view and an almost religious calm. We will certainly come back.

  • Gilbert's welcome was superb. The spot is in the middle of nature, the forest behind us and a vast meadow in front of us giving us a great view...!
    We had breakfast in an authentic setting, excellent local products. Excellent. Gilbert is very attentive to his guests. A great exchange, a great memory! Thank you Gilbert

  • Gilbert warmly welcomed us and we spent a wonderful night on his land. What a pleasure to have breakfast in the morning in front of this cool panorama with the visit of a deer.

  • We were very well received by Gilbert, the place is very quiet with a beautiful view, we were even visited by game in the morning. Gilbert also has a small museum and a really good spring water

  • 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!
