A permaculture micro-farm located in the Chevreuse valley. Numerous hikes in the vicinity.

The setting

We are in the countryside. Two kilometers from the train and the National Road 12.
Around us, fields, 55 hectares of forest, a pond and next to the farm, the magnificent castle of Artoire (private but visible from the parking of the farm).

The spots

Three caravans and several tents can be accommodated at the same time.
Animals are accepted.
However, neither humans nor animals will be allowed in the forest of the farm which we try to keep as wild as possible.
The caravans and trailers are parked behind the farmhouse facing the fields.
View on the village which is 2 kilometers from the farm (20 minutes on foot).
Quite quiet, except at peak hours (we always hear the birds but sometimes also a little bit the national road) and unfortunately, at certain times of the day the works which are carried out by my neighbors.
The tents are installed in the woods.

The sanitary facilities

Toilets and showers independent and to be shared with the other campers in free access during the day and the night except from 11pm to 7am. Access to water and electricity near the caravans. One of the showers is solar, so it depends on the climate. One of the sanitary facilities is a dry toilet.

Land & setting
  • A very warm welcome and an unparalleled breakfast offer, delighted. For my first HomeCamper, it was a success. Many thanks to Gersende.

  • Thanks to Gersende for welcoming us. We were able to camp quietly and in a very beautiful setting. No problem to communicate and organize ourselves beforehand. She was very accommodating with our large group.
    I highly recommend her.

  • Great welcome! The camping site in the forest is very nice, you can hear all the animal noises (wild boars, deer, owls). The small permaculture farm of Gersende is very nice to visit and the breakfast is delicious!

  • Perfect night in the quiet and the visit of the farm was very nice.

    Gersende is very kind and welcomed us very well.

    It's the best to find such places near Paris!

  • We spent two nights at Gersende's. The place is very beautiful and the welcome is excellent, nothing to complain about. The camping place is a bit far from the farm at the entrance of the wood: we really appreciated to sleep completely in the nature (the counterpart is that the bathroom/toilet is not just next door). If you are looking for a bivouac atmosphere with the amenities of a campground, this is the perfect solution.

  • Very good experience.
    We were very well received, the setting is very pleasant, a very pretty farmhouse, the castle and the pond nearby, the forest, a real change of scenery.

    The camping site in the forest is ideally located at the edge of the wood.
    The access to the conveniences (shower, toilets, common living room) is easy.

    I recommend, for lovers of camping in nature.

  • Late arrival exhausted by traffic jams, nice welcome from Gersende, pleasant setting which will be magnificent when the construction work is finished, the pond, the forest... Electrical connection was perfect, water pipe too short to fill up the tank but I didn't need it.

  • We spent 2 superb days. The setting is pleasant, the visit of the farm a beautiful discovery that has much more to my son of 5 years and my niece of 10 years. We learned some permaculture techniques and had the privilege to feed the kids. Very nice first camping experience. Gersende was very welcoming and available. Thank you for this good time spent in the middle of nature. I highly recommend it.
