In the Parc national de forêts, at the gateway to the Auberive forest, the valley in which our 2 gypsy caravans are located offers peace and quiet, lush, unspoilt nature...

The setting

A palette of shimmering lights, from dawn to dusk, will enhance your observations of the surrounding wildlife.
Come and discover the National Forest Park, on a donkey trail, on a bike, or with a backpack.

The spots

Our 2 caravans are nestled in a magnificent valley.
They were built by volunteers as part of participatory workcamps.
Built on farm carts and using only local wood, they are one-of-a-kind!
They're all set far apart from each other, to give you the peace and privacy you need to enjoy this privileged environment.
Large outdoor spaces surround each accommodation.
Access is on foot from the parking lot (150m maximum), and we provide handcarts for transporting your belongings.
Near the pitches, you can meet our herd of friendly, yet discreet donkeys.

The sanitary facilities

You'll benefit from a sheltered sanitary area shared by all users of the eco-domain, built as part of a participative project.
Two fully-equipped bathrooms (showers, sinks, mirrors, wooden lockers, towel racks) and a dishwashing area with hot water are at your disposal.
A private dry toilet is available close to your caravan.
A water basin is installed inside the caravans (no connection to running water, but you'll be able to do a little tinkering with the water jerrycan at your disposal).

The amenities

The trailers are equipped with a double bed and 2 single bunk beds.
A small work surface with a 2-burner stove and all the kitchen equipment you need to prepare meals will enable you to be self-sufficient.
A small table inside will enable you to have your meals in case of bad weather.
The roulotte has a terrace with a garden table, so you can enjoy the outdoors and the proximity of the forest.
The roulottes are equipped with electrical outlets and an electric heater (in case of very cool weather) powered by a solar panel installed on top.

The activities

Donkeys can be hired on site to accompany you on your walks and hikes to discover the forest massif.
Indeed, our exceptional location in the National Forest Park makes our site a privileged starting point for hiking (donkey, horse, bike, pedestrian):
Staging point along the GR7, short hiking trails (PR) all around the site.
Topographical guides available.
Nature huts built by the Centre d'Initiation à la Nature d'Auberive in the forest.
You can also discover the area's Cistercian past, including Auberive Abbey.

You can also explore the city of Langres, with its famous ramparts, museums and 4 lakes, where you'll find supervised swimming, canoeing, paddle-boarding, pedal-boating, windsurfing...

Vehicles and traffic on the site:
Motorized traffic is not permitted on the ecodomain. Cars must be parked in the parking lot behind the forest house or alongside the main road. Handcarts are available to take your belongings to the caravans or to do your shopping. They are your responsibility during your stay.

Pets are not allowed in our caravans. Donkeys and dogs do not mix well. Dogs must be kept on a leash or tethered. They must not bother the neighborhood or other guests by disturbing behavior (rambling, barking, excrement, etc.).

Insurance and civil liability:
The tenant must be insured with a well-known insurance company against the risks of theft, fire and other damage, both for rental risks and for the rented furniture, as well as for recourse from neighbors, and provide proof of this at the first requisition of the managers. Consequently, the manager declines all responsibility for the recourse that his insurance company could exercise against his tenant in the event of a claim.
