 The campsite is on a 2 acre level field adjoining our property. We are a couple who moved to France from the UK. We used to go camping with our motorhome. We created this campsite by putting evreything into it that we liked about campsites. 

The pitches are spacious, you can choose if you like subetween sunny, shaded or half shaded pitches. All the pitches have access to drinking water and 10 Amp electricity.  Some also have picnic tables.

We enjoy long hot summers and short mild winters. We have amazing sunsets and night skies as there is no light polution in our hamlet.
