A superb wooded plot in the heart of an almost untamed natural environment that we strive to preserve (Refuge LPO). You'll be able to swim in our little river below, spot a few fish and small white crayfish, other squirrels, birds, deer, foxes and wild boar... Peace and quiet with birdsong and the sound of water, and no cars around.
Caution: Access remote and rather difficult, pedestrian. Basse/Moyenne Montagne.
Low Mountain, 600 m altitude. Cedar, olive, lime, cherry, fig, spruce, oak, pine, cypress, walnut...
No surrounding artificial light, no traffic... Only the sound of nature. Lots of vegetation. River with natural waterfall and natural swimming pools. Rather cold water (up to 19 degrees in summer).
Surrounding hiking trails. Natural water springs
Pitch in the shade of a beautiful lime tree, in the lower part of the plot. Large tent possible. Other pitches available, depending on your equipment.
The sanitary facilities
Dry toilets and solar-powered shower to preserve the exclusively outdoor setting.
Provision of an extension cord connected outside if needed to recharge small electrical equipment such as a telephone.
Basic emergency supplies (stove, saucepan, sugar, salt and pepper). Possibly an inflatable mattress and an inflator... It's always good to have a plan B if your mattress gets punctured!
If necessary, and depending on weather conditions on longer stays, we can offer you access to our washing machine and bathroom in case of bad weather, because it's understandable!
Swimming in unspoilt natural surroundings without people (private). Hiking, near Mercantour. Horseback riding in Peille. Cheesemaking nearby (depending on opening hours). Rest and relaxation on site, as the location naturally lends itself to such activities!
Opening in April 2023 of a grocery store in Peille (15min by car, 30min by bike, 1h15 on foot for good walkers).
Difficult access and exclusively pedestrian, your vehicle will be impossible to leave in the direct vicinity of the house. Ours are not. Leave your car 900m from the house. Access by footpath (15 minutes from the parking area to the house). We'll help you if you need it, and we'll come and meet you! We have a winch with a 100m zip line to transport your equipment. Coming with us is an adventure and a unique experience. Good shoes are essential. Not too steep, but we prefer to warn you! We live here year-round, so it's not impossible! It's not a high mountain refuge either! Beware, some telephone operators don't work here.
Not recommended for low cars.
No night owls, no parties, peaceful place.
Arrival between 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. preferred, given our professional activities. Otherwise, please inform us of your arrival time in advance so that we can organize and come to meet you to make things easier for you. No arrivals after 8pm if possible.
Possibility of breakfast (€10 / person)
Breakfast includes: a hot drink (Italian-style coffee) or a variety of teas of your choice or home-brewed organic herbal teas, a cold drink (milk or water) to suit you, a glass of fruit juice (such as industrial orange juice 100% pure juice or home-pressed Orange if available), a 300-500g loaf of home-baked bread (spelt and wholemeal organic flour and according to availability) to slice for the table, a seasonal fruit or homemade organic compote, honey, butter, jam (according to taste) to accompany, 2 slices of cold cuts (bacon or grilled Italian pancetta or country ham), 1 portion of cheese (according to availability, local tomme or fresh local goat or Italian cheese).
A second-hand 2-seater tent on loan if needed, with inflatable mattress.
Loan=free for me.
In case of damage, we'll work something out.

We spent 5 days at Alexandre's with our 3 children.
It was a very pleasant and relaxing stay.
The setting is magnificent and calm.
Alexandre is a very friendly, attentive and available person.
He and his partner made us feel very welcome and we highly recommend this travel experience!
Thank you again for your kindness, and maybe we'll see you soon in Toulouse!
Superb Experience! Thank you so much! Alexandre and Julia are super nice and welcomed us like friends. Once there, the setting is exceptional and super quiet with independent amenities (showers and toilets). We hope to come back and recommend it to everyone :)
A great family stay! Thanks to Alexandre and Julia for their warm welcome. Absolutely top-notch! The setting is totally isolated and unusual. We alternated between rest, swimming and hiking. We would have gladly extended our stay by 5 days! Great experience.
Alexandrie is an exceptional host and a great handyman, so arriving at his home is a big surprise.
There are magical places, but Alexandre's is exceptional and surprising.
If you're looking for adventure, isolated at the bottom of a valley, this is the place for you.
Don't hesitate for a second to book.
Magical and surprising, I tell you.
Sometimes you come across those exceptional places you didn't even dare to hope for beforehand. This is one of those. Alexandre and Julia welcomed us last-minute in their ydillic spot in the middle of nature. They are both hardworking people with a passion for nature. Alexandre has his own shop in the centre of Peille, knows a lot about local wines and cheeses and can show you around the region, Julia has dreamed of being a trainer of guide dogs since she was 12 years old and has been following her passion ever since. They are building their life project which they are rightly proud of and which greatly inspires us. Don't hesitate and go for this unique experience, you won't regret it. They are such warm people who have so much to offer and know what elements in life are important to be happy and share this with others. Big hugs to these two sweethearts. We hope to see you again and wish you all the luck.

Our favorite of our rod trip !
Alexandre is just a perfect host!
Communicative, very friendly, helpful... with his companion they offered us in their corner of paradise a really new experience in the heart of nature. We could have hoped for a change of scenery. It will remain an excellent memory! I recommend with all my heart !!!!
Super camp at Alexandre's. Then it is true the access is delicate, it is not necessary a too low car, but if you like the nature and the peace it is really the top.
Alexandre is hyper friendly, we spent a good time and learned a lot about the region.
Perfect stay, Alexandre is very accommodating and allowed us thanks to his idyllic land and cut from the world to recharge our batteries ;)
We had a wonderful stay with Alexandre. He and his wife were warm and welcoming. They immediately put us at ease. What can we say about the setting which was so beautiful and pleasant, we had an excellent stay and we can only recommend it.
Thank you Alexandre, we will come back!
