About us

The plans to move to France and start a camping site had been there since we, Marco and Mélanie, went steady in 1981. But we bought a house and had two beautiful boys and the plans disappeared into the background. On the way back from a holiday, in which the plans were discussed again, we drove over the A75 and saw the Cantal, the Sancy and the Puy de Dôme with snow on them. The Auvergne had caught our attention and we decided to explore this region further. We fell in love with the Livradois-Forez with its unspoilt nature, peace and quiet and during a holiday in April 2012 we found our dream spot.
In the meantime we agreed that starting just a small campsite was not enough. We had to quit our jobs in IT and childcare and thought that starting a Chambre d'Hôtes could give us enough income to live on. When we found the group accommodation and the terrain to start a small campsite, we felt lucky. We immediately fell in love with the place, the view and the building. We would be able to start renting out to groups right away, so we would have the same income and the terrain was big enough for a mini campsite.

When people come to us, whether they are guests for the group accommodation, for the campsite, or friends or family. The first question they ask after looking around with big eyes is; "How on earth did you find this?" Simply, via the internet, is our answer.

We might have been sold, but it took another 1.5 years before we could leave, but in November 2013 it was finally there. We immediately ended up in an adventure. See our photo album about the move.

let yourself be surprised by the unspoilt
and tranquillity of the Auvergne

Our dream spot is located in the middle of the Parc Livradois-Forez, on top of a mountain at an altitude of 1065 meters and has a beautiful view over the Cantal, the Sancy and the Puy de Dôme. We are surrounded by forests, the air is pure, the nights are nice and fresh and in the summer it is wonderful to stay on the mountain. We love to walk and feel privileged with so much nature around us. We regularly put on our hiking boots and discover for ourselves how beautiful the Livradois-Forez is. We like to show our guests all the beautiful spots.

it continues to enjoy

We are now six years later and much has changed. The group accommodation is almost the same as when we came here. Although we would like some changes, it is also good and we have put our energy into placing a safari tent, improving the camping site and building two little chalets. We have a vegetable garden, a herb garden and a discovery garden where especially Mélanie can often be found. Marco is involved in maintenance, construction and the website. We have divided the tasks well.

We still enjoy our beautiful place to the fullest and love to receive guests here and share our beautiful place!

We live on the mountain with our three cats. Our Minoes (July 2015) is the queen of Deux Frères who likes to catch mice and keep an eye on our young males. Chilli and Pepper (August 2019) are little charmers. Pepper is enterprising and Chilli is the cuddle.

Our cat children don't mind dogs on the property, but don't like them running loose.

We hope that you become just as enthusiastic after viewing our website and that we can welcome you on “our” mountain.
