Tourist office in Grenade (I will prepare a collection of information on sites to visit)
Grenade is located in the northern suburbs of Toulouse, a town of 9,000 inhabitants with all amenities (various shops, supermarkets, doctors etc.). We have our own cinema! We are situated in the middle of a triangle between the Gers, the Tarn et Garonne and the Tarn. Many walks, visits of villages, museum Aeroscopia, space city, Zoo African Safari, etc.). We are on the road to Spain - close to the roads to Santiago de Compostela. Small quiet town, municipal lighting turned off between midnight and 6am. After 6:30-7:00 pm it is very quiet. My house is in a quiet residential area.
The location is on my front lawn, a bit of shade at the end of the day, surrounded by hedges on 3 sides, the 4th side you have a view on the rooms of the house (I reassure you, they are almost never used except when I have my 2 small children during their school vacations). The ground is rather flat. It is about 5 m x 4 m - suitable only for tents (and of corresponding dimensions, because around it are flowerbeds + - depending on the season)
The sanitary facilities
You will have access to a shower room (with hot water) with WC, as well as in the laundry room access to the sink to do your dishes and take water (it is drinkable). No problem of schedules because it is in the extension of the house just behind the garage so I am not bothered by the noise.
Please note that there is no electricity at the tent site. (From midnight, the municipality turns off the public lighting - bring your flashlight). You can leave your cell phone to be charged inside (in the garage or in the laundry room). I also accept to put some groceries in my refrigerator, and even to put the freezer containers in the freezer. Wifi internet access.
I can lend a small camping table, seats, plates, glasses and bowl if needed
Golf in Seilh (10mn by car) Montauban (25m)
