Fall asleep under the myriad stars, lulled by the song of the torrent, perhaps accompanied by the mysterious hooting of an owl... Rediscover the calm and tranquillity of a sleep as close to the wild as possible, far from pollution....
From June to October, the Castel Tournou organic medicinal plant farm welcomes hikers to its campsite, set in unspoilt natural surroundings at an altitude of 1,200 m, for a complete change of scenery.
Access is by foot from the village of Tende, and takes 2 to 3 hours. You can save 45min by going to the very end of the Route de la Pia and parking at the La Pia barns (without hindering the ability of farm machinery to turn around, as the parking lot is small!) There's a 400m ascent on a very well-marked trail.
On reservation, I can prepare your meals with a majority of organic and local products.
The campsite is set in shady undergrowth, bordered by the river and its waterfalls.
There are 6 shaded pitches for tents.
The sanitary facilities
Dry toilets and outdoor solar showers are available, as well as a small washbasin. Hot water depends on sunshine.
There is also plenty of access to the river and its beautiful waterfalls and basins, for refreshing swims.
Non-organic hygiene products (soaps, shampoos, etc.) are strictly forbidden on the farm.
A summer kitchen is available, with wood or gas cooking (extra charge). It's also the farm's living space, an opportunity for convivial moments!
It's also possible to make a fire (except in dry periods).
Internet access (SFR and Bouygues) and electricity are available from time to time in my cabin.
Whether you're an occasional hiker or an experienced one, the many trails around the farm make it an ideal stop-off point: you can discover the picturesque hamlet of Refrei, climb Mont Bertrand (2,484m) and its breathtaking panorama, discover the dreamlike landscapes of the Marguareis karst massif in the company of chamois and marmots, or go for a swim beneath the tropical Roueou waterfall...
For canyoning enthusiasts, the river running alongside the farm is a beautiful route, with pretty waterfalls and a few abseils.
Mountain activities abound in the Roya valley: hiking, canyoning, paragliding, climbing, horseback riding and donkey rides...
The Merveilles archaeological site, overlooked by Mont Bégo, is also a must-see in the valley.
The site is isolated and accessible only on foot. Bring your own food or remember to book your own meals, prepared mainly with organic and local produce and wild plants (Per person, excluding drinks. Shared meal: 15€ for lunch, 20€ for dinner. Grand repas entrée plat dessert: 30€ / 10€ under 13).
In times of drought, fires are prohibited.
Friendly dogs are welcome.

Breakfasts are made from organic and local produce wherever possible: wholemeal bread, home-made jams and honey, fruit, dried fruit, plant milks, coffee, herbal teas from the farm...
