IDEAL TO WELCOME GROUPS! Rental of an isolated and secure plot of land of 40 ares, in the middle of a natural reserve, on the Tienne Morainy plateau near the Fondry des Chiens (remarkable natural site) to discover the Calestienne and the Nismes Forest.
The Calestienne is a limestone plateau at the junction of the French Ardennes and the Fagne, dating back 350 million years and of coral origin.
You are immersed in the middle of a nature reserve in a very diversified landscape (plains, forests, bushes), surrounded by an exceptional protected flora.
It is the "wild" atmosphere.
More than 300 palléogouffres are listed there.
The immense forest of Nismes ardennaise to preserved in majority its natural heritage. However, you are only 10 minutes away from the village by a very nice picturesque path to do your shopping where all sorts of shops are available and open on Sundays for basic needs.
No traffic, no noise (far away); only wild nature.
The 40 ares plot of land is located in the heart of the forest and is fully fenced (secured). It is close to a viewpoint on the region and a few meters from a chasm.
Two small wooden shelters are installed, as well as a place to make a fire and firewood is available (supplement).
This welcoming land, with no slope, is composed of small gardens, meadows and shaded areas with undergrowth.
The land is easily accessible by car and has parking spaces.
There are two large separate plots to ensure privacy for individual travelers or groups. The terrain is flat and easy to access.
The tents can be placed wherever you want.
Please note that I can only accept mini-vans with sleeping berths or a size similar to a caravel, or a VW transporter at the most.

You can heat water in a kettle.

You can just bring your cutlery, plates and bowls, your solar lamps. Bring also a bottom of oil for the use of my pans.

Another wonderful weekend on Cecile's field. Thanks to her for her availability and her kindness.
Her site is very well located, a few minutes walk from the Fondry des Chiens or the village of Nismes.
The most: the cabin (gas stove, utensils...), very practical to store our food and prepare breakfast.
We will come back (again!) :-)
We had a wonderfull stay. Love the nature. Great possibility for hiking.
A true happiness that this weekend with friends and family on the ground of Cecile Grace in this beautiful region. Everything is planned, it is super well equipped, communication with Cecile is very easy, warm and fast. Adults and children are thrilled! It was even a first experience in a tent for some of them. What an adventure! Superb hiking trails just a few steps away, the magnificent Fondry des Chiens just a few hundred meters away. For sure, we will come back!
An incredible adventure on this beautiful site ???? Cecile is top notch - contactable -
Our first experience with Manon - and the best
Cécile-Grâce provided us with all the necessary information, even at the last minute because the access was modified by a festivity in the village.
The land is really great and corresponds to the description :-)
The location of Cécile-Grâce is a little corner of paradise, and Cécile-Grâce is very attentive... We will come back for sure!
Everything was perfect! What is sure, it is that we will return there...

We had a great weekend on Cecile's field. We did not have the opportunity to meet her but all the instructions were clear. The small shelters are very practical and well equipped.
Perfect stay and very good reception! Very quiet for a stay with friends, but the village is also accessible by a small road ideal for small races while being isolated from the houses!
In spite of availability problems, Cécile did not hesitate to welcome me. Very nice setting and 1 night shared with the sheep
It was a real pleasure to stay at Cecile's beautiful place. Moreover, Cecile is adorable.
Thanks to Cécile-Grâce for her warm welcome. The place is very friendly, the nature is beautiful and everything is at your disposal from a practical point of view. It's great!
Here you will be close to Mother Nature, very close to various hikes, to the village and to a beautiful park, where you can listen to the owls, woodpeckers, buzzards...
Here too you will find that there are still good people, your host Cecile is a clear proof.
There are still many things to say about this place but I let you discover them...Oh yes one last thing, I was lucky to have neighbors, two adorable sheep!
Superb location. We camped here with a group of small children and everybody really enjoyed the stay. The surroundings are amazing. Within no-time we were walking around the Fondry's...
Everything was perfect, we had a great weekend! Cécile-Grâce is a very friendly and available host! We already came twice and will not hesitate to come back again!
very quiet place in the middle of nature
Great welcome and fantastic setting. (the only thing missing is a solution for the toilets;)
Very nice place :-)
Cecile is very friendly!
It is also very easy to arrange and communicate with her.
The place is very nice.
Thank you very much!
It was a very good location to stay with a group of young people. We all enjoyed it.
Super place in the middle of nature, 5 minutes walk from the center of the village, we spent a great weekend around the wood fire. We really enjoyed talking with Cécile. Thank you very much for your hospitality. We will certainly come back when the opportunity arises. 5 stars in all categories ;-)
Very good surprise. At 5 minutes walking distance from Eau noire and Nismes, a touristic village offering beautiful walks, the land is located in a natural reserve with many geographical and geological curiosities. It borders a path (quite frequented). The very enthusiastic and passionate owner arranged it with many facilities: crockery, gas, corner fire, shelter... with you to use it, or not.
We will come back quickly before this address is too much coveted :-)
A setting as exceptional as its host. Cécile-Grâce welcomed us to her land with unlimited kindness and considerable confidence in our group. We had an exceptional stay and for that we thank you. See you soon.
Cécile welcomed us very well in her beautiful place! We will come back !
Great weekend in a magical setting! Very welcoming host! I'll be back :)
Cécile is a very attentive host, it was a pleasure to meet her.
If you come with a big car roof tent, it's a bit tight to set up, but it fits ;-)
The area is beautiful, walk to Fondry des Chiens from the site.
If you like to be quiet and at the same time close to the village of Nimes, the place is perfect.
There are cooking facilities and water cans for washing with basin. You can also enjoy the terraces and the restaurants. We ate the homemade scampis flambéed in the old forge, really good! The chef is Sicilian, nice atmosphere. At 5 min from the campsite, departure of the walks on foot. Cécile lends you the map. If you forgot something, just say so. No need for more to be happy. A return to the roots that feels good. Just look carefully at the way you are going so that you don't get lost like us after the restaurant. In the dark it's more complicated...
We had a great stay at Cécile-Grâce's place,the place is very quiet and is next to a hiking trail.Cécile is a very dynamic person,who listens to her campers.on the place you will find water cans at your disposal,a great attention.I advise you to visit the dog's fondry...it's a must see :)
OLI & VERO
Warm and friendly welcome. Plot very well placed and isolated in the heart of nature. No discomfort with the neighbors of the plot next door, Cécile-Grâce takes care of the comfort of each guest.
Very nice place,
in the middle of a natural reserve, good welcome.
Possibility of making fire (wood at disposal for a small supplement). Very NATURAL space - Very beautiful region.
Great place near the center and at the same time lost in the nature! Shelter available, water, wood...
Great camp "alone in the world" :-). There is everything you need to spend a pleasant moment in the middle of nature.
Cécile-Grâce is very nice, answers very quickly.
We will come back there!
A very pleasant stay in nature. Cécile-Grâce is considerate, available and answers quickly to questions. She has set up her site to make life easy for the camper. There is no electricity or toilet because we are in the middle of nature but she provides everything else. If you like back to basics camping with a small town nearby, don't hesitate.
