Description

Between sea and forest, in a bohemian and unusual setting, come and spend a night under the canvas of this pretty vintage tent from the 70s. Let yourself be lulled by the sounds of birdsong, roosters and howling wolves in the nearby "Rêve de Bisons" park, and stroll through the garden's various relaxation areas. A peaceful change of scenery awaits you.
The tent sleeps 2 (inflatable mattress, sheet, blanket and pillows supplied). Its small overhang keeps your belongings dry.

The setting

A magnificent 5200m2 wooded plot with a beautiful orchard that provides us with an abundance of apples every year :)
The garden is not "groomed" everywhere... but there are paths through the grounds and mowed areas.
You'll be lulled to sleep by the songs of the local birds and roosters, and sometimes even by the howling of the wolves who live in a wildlife park 2 kilometers from us.
Calm and serenity are the order of the day :)

Other things

There's also my house under construction... hence the caravan ;) so there may be some construction site supplies around the house... but once in the garden they're no longer visible...;)
You may also come across other campers, but don't worry, the site is big enough for everyone to have their privacy.


Rules

The rules are those of respect and benevolence towards each other: children
and adults present, whatever their culture, belief or religion...
And also respect for the place and the animals.
If you're a smoker, I'll provide you with an ashtray;
For garbage cans, I practice selective sorting: glass and packaging garbage cans are available and a bucket will be given to you for your food scraps and compostable waste (the animals love them :).
animals love them :).
Access to the site requires my presence on arrival, but after that you're free to come and go as you please.
