Nice host knows the location well very helpful had all the things needed in in the campsite
Our stay was just perfect. Gilbert is a very dear host who welcomed us so warmly that we felt right at home. His property is beautiful and he built a great place with kitchen, shower and toilet. All a great experience! In addition, Gilbert gave us fantastic tips on what to do in the area and as a perfect ending we were allowed in the hot tub :-) many thanks for everything, we can highly recommend the place!
very good stay, Gilbert is very nice and advises on the sites to visit :)
Gil welcomed us superbly, we made a walk with him then invited him to eat with us. We were able to try his Norwegian bath, which was very pleasant after a day of walking. Here we have spent 3 days well filled and very rewarding Gilbert is a great host that we recommend to all.
My stay at Gilbert's was perfect. Because of the cooler temperatures, I was able to sleep in the garden shed.
The pergola area is very nice and has everything you need to cook, including the barbecue which I also used as a brazier.
Gilbert's welcome was incredible. He gave me a lot of information about the area (which is very beautiful) and even went for a walk with me, just for fun.
I was also very interested in his DIY finds, as he knows how to do just about everything with his hands.
Gilbert, I spent 4 fantastic days with you and I thank you very much. It would be a great pleasure to come back and pitch my tent with you.
See you another time I hope.
Pleasant stay. Gilbert welcomes you and advises you on the walks to do and the cultural events in the area, really very practical! We shared good moments. To recommend :)
Very pleasant stay!
Exceptional! Ideal frame and environment to stay, we took as much pleasure to enjoy the place as to enjoy the surroundings. Host very available, listening and full of resources!
My best experience on this site so far!
Gilbert was a great host, in an idyllic setting, for a luxury camping!
He loves his mountains so much that he made us discover them from every angle, history, anecdotes and hikes, it was a real pleasure. Thank you very much for offering us such a beautiful vacation !
Gilbert is very welcoming, he took time to show us his beautiful region (which he knows perfectly), to advise us. He is a very good hiking guide, and he is very patient (fortunately, with 5 children in the high mountains)! The view when we wake up is breathtaking and there is all the necessary installation to eat well (fridge, BBQ, cupboards, big table,...). Gilbert is a talented handyman who fascinated our teenagers. We enjoyed it so much that we plan to come back! So, for all these reasons, and more, I recommend this host!
Discovery of the Mont Cenis with our host, an outstanding guide, attention to detail, unusual visits, adapted advice: a big THANK YOU.
Gilbert is very welcoming and resourceful. The place is strategic to visit, walk, climb...
We had a great stay in spite of the bad weather, thanks to Gilbert's very good advice! We are very grateful to him!
The facilities on the grounds are very functional!
Delighted! Thanks again to Gilbert, we will be back!
We recommend him!
Great welcome from Gilbert who shares his knowledge and experience in all simplicity. He does this for the pleasure of being of service and for the love of his region and that makes all the difference! I recommend him! Thank you for everything! :)
Gilbert welcomed us very warmly on a well equipped site for campers! He gave us good advice and helped us out after our car broke down... Thanks to him, we discovered some great places in the region.
We spent a night on Gilbert's beautiful grounds. A great welcome, we are sure that if we had stayed longer we could have had some nice moments of exchange. The place is incredible! The outdoor kitchen, the cabin, the sanitary facilities...all the comforts are there to spend a very nice stay. In the quiet, with only the river in the background. Thank you Gilbert for your welcome and thank you for having installed all this for the travelers!
Beautiful garden with a breathtaking view of the mountains. We did not miss anything, superb place to eat, small typical chalet to warm up, natural shower. Thanks to Gilbert for his welcome and his precious advice on places to visit.
Excellent reception with a quiet corner and which proposes magnificent stroll in the corner.
First experience in Gamping Successful Very pleasant ground, rocked and refreshed by the noise of the torrent. Nothing is missing.
Gilbert is a very available and attentive host. Thanks for the model making session!
Excellent little stay in Maurienne, where we were perfectly installed at Gilbert's where nothing is missing.
Gilbert's welcome is particularly warm, thank you very much !
Camille, Kevin, Margot and Jean
A haven of peace where you can fall asleep to the sound of a small mountain stream.
Original site which I liked.
Thank you Gilbert
First time, the welcome is perfect, the setting too, I highly recommend the address, a superb meeting, on vacation you have to be cool
We (a group of 6 friends) had a great stay at Gilbert's. A very good welcome, a gamping ++ thanks to the equipment on the spot and to the setting, a beautiful place and a village a little away from the valley. Gilbert is available and attentive to our needs to give us judicious advices about hikes and visits, and was kind enough to take us on beautiful hikes that we certainly would not have done without him.
A perfect stay, unforgettable memories, a beautiful experience that we are several to want to renew and make discover to our close relations.
Thanks again Gilbert and see you soon.
Gilbert welcomed us very well. The site is very well equipped, and the setting is superb. Gilbert also gave us a lot of advice on hikes and things to do in the area. We recommend it!
We were very well received at Gilbert's place. The setting is magnificent, it is understandable that those who don't like waterfalls find the proximity annoying, in any case it was not the case for us, he welcomed us with all the comfort that two bikers can expect ????????. Thanks to him. And the advice for the leaning house and the forts too top. We recommend without problem
For a first time, Gilbert has set the bar very high. All the comfort of the campsite and its infrastructures for a very limited number of users.
His kindness and his advice on hiking in the area are incomparable.
We will come back....
Very nice welcome in a friendly setting, Gilbert is a great advisor for hiking in the area! A great layout on his land!
Gilbert is very welcoming and has a very large equipment for the camper, so camping all comfort for me!
The only small defect is the noise of the waterfall, but we stayed only one night and I suppose that one is used to it after several days.
Gilbert was also an excellent adviser for some visits in the area and of very good advice, he did not hesitate to even leave his laptop to show us the various choices of visits.
We spent several nights at Gilbert's place and we didn't miss a thing, quite the contrary! Gilbert is a great host, because not only does he do everything possible to make his guests comfortable, but he also gave us great advice on what to do in the area (especially for hiking): again, a big thank you for all this! We hope to come back soon, there is so much to discover in this beautiful region!
The place to pitch your tent is perfect, a nice garden, an equipped outdoor kitchen, a waterfall and a beautiful view!
All this for a very modest price.
And Gilbert is available, friendly and knows the area well!
I went for a hike with him and it was very nice!
I recommend him to you!
Gilbert is very sympathetic.
He is very attentive to his guests.
We did not miss anything.
Except one thing, the good weather :)
We will certainly come back for a weekend.
Thank you Gilbert for this stay with you! We feel at home, guided and advised by you. Thank you again for the welcome. We will not hesitate to come back!
Superb but short stay at Gilbert's :)
The setting is beautiful and Gilbert's simplistic approach is very appreciable.
Very functional, the space that he reserves for us is very well equipped, a happiness.
Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you :)
Juliana, Philippine and Sarah
Magnificent place, breathtaking view on the mountain...two nights are not enough to discover the hidden treasures of the Alps ! Besides the landscape Gilbert is really a great host, both by his availability and his desire to make us discover his beautiful region! It is sure, we will come back cia...
First experience of gampers successful!
Friendly and welcoming host.
Beautiful place but the duration of the stay did not allow us to take advantage of it at best.
We will return.
Don't hesitate to stop at Gilbert's, for his kindness and his welcome
Very nice place...wake up and see the mountains .....
Thank you Gilbert.
Very good continuation
Benoît Et Isabelle G.
An ideal camping place for a family, convenient and comfortable.
Our host plays the role of tour guide admirably.
Gilbert is a philanthropist! He tries to give his Gampers the maximum comfort for a more than reasonable price. At the end of September, I was alone. So I was able to put (after Gilbert's suggestion) my sleeping bag in the cabin for five days. I would not have been more comfortable in a camper.
The location is more than close to the southern part of the Vanoise park. If you don't have time to work on the guidebooks, Gilbert will be happy to advise you (maps, guidebooks and videos are available).
Thank you Gilbert for this stay !
Thank you Gilbert for your welcome, for your availability, for your resistance to the volume of the children.Thank you for making us love your beautiful mountains.We are not big walkers and we did not hesitate to try some walks.
Thank you for having kept the children when the last one made us a small fright.You will have understood it at Gilbert's place we are like at home, we share convivial moments around the table under the shelter.go to make a turn in this place...do not hesitate.Gilbert we will return to see you I hope soon.
We had an excellent stay with Gilbert.
He will help you plan your hikes according to your needs. He is a true connoisseur of the mountains and the surrounding area.
He is very available and welcoming.
We are thinking of coming back one day with our children.
Thanks again, Gilbert!
Gilbert welcomes you in his garden with very practical facilities (large shelter with kitchen and small hut with kitchen and fridge) for the campers. Gilbert is friendly and offers advice for walks in the area.
Philippine & Thibaut G.
We were very well received and advised for the hikes by Gilbert. His garden is pleasant and well laid out. We will certainly come back for a breath of fresh air.
This was also our first experience of gamping. Gilbert is a very nice host. There is everything necessary to facilitate the autonomy of the gaper. The property is ideally located because there are many activities to do, we unfortunately did not have enough time to explore everything! Before going back on the road, we went to the leaning house, which Gilbert had told us about. We still wonder about the strange effect of this one! (even without going inside, we were already disoriented!). To be done again on a longer stay!
Great week. Gilbert is a very nice host, available and of good advice. He knows his region well and shares it with us. The land is well located with multiple activities in the area. Gilbert has everything you need. Don't hesitate to stop by!
First experience in gamping and completely satisfied with our 15 days at Gilbert!
The site is quiet, rocked by the torrent, with a view on the mountain, and with many equipments at the disposal of the gampeurs which make the gamping very comfortable, even in case of rain.
Gilbert explained the history of the valley and gave us good advice on beautiful hikes. He always listened to us, gave us good advice, and was ready to make our lives easier.
A big thank you to Gilbert!
We strongly recommend this gamping site!
For a first experience of gamping, we fell, me and my companion, on, and it is not a superlative: on the rare pearl!
Gilbert, our host, with his generosity of heart, his kindness, his good welcome, and his humor did everything to make our stay as memorable as possible!
So that we could savor each moment as full of little nuggets of happiness and discoveries!
And indeed, Gilbert being available and us non-motorized, he did not hesitate to make us discover a lot of nice places, very nice hikes to do and the resources of the surrounding heritage such as the fort of Essaillon, the village Bonneval, classified 6th most beautiful village of France, the dam and the big lake of Mont-Cénis and I pass and the best!!!
Thank you very much Gilbert for your hospitality and all your good ideas and initiatives to make our stay with you as pleasant as possible!
In any case it's all won!
So much so that we will come back with pleasure!
I advise to try the adventure to all those who love the serenity and the pure air of the mountains!
PS: there is even a waterfall that runs alongside the house! Just great!
We were looking for a place to rest during the trip from Poitiers to Tolmin in Slovenia. We stopped at Gilbert's in La Praz - St André for one night only. The welcome was friendly and nice. The setting is really beautiful with the mountains surrounding the property, the small waterfall at the bottom of the garden. A small kitchen, an outdoor toilet, and a dining area with all the necessary amenities were at our disposal. We would certainly have stopped on our way back from Slovenia if our friends had not invited us to their home in Chambéry. A very good experience for a first gamping.
