Children are welcome and have loved it here but it requires a vigilance because there are stairs to access the garden, see photos, and please specify age of children in any queries. Sorry no pets.
Don't hesitate to ask any questions before booking, my aim is have happy guests!
Guests have their own entrance, living and cooking space and balcony area and parking. The sitting room in the photos is small but cosy with splendid views over the terrace into the trees.
Summer kitchen has everything you need for cooking (and a few extras depending on the season) should you so wish. The water tap is outside but I am happy to share the dishwasher.You may choose space in the one acre garden or on hammocks as you wish.
Personalised treatments, reflexology, essential oils, Bach flowers and essences etc. available upon request. Free participation in the yoga relaxation class in the village.
Interaction with Guests
I am often in the main house with my friendly dog. However the apartments are completely independent and there is enough outdoor havens in the one acre grounds for peaceful privacy.
Your animals may be accepted - please ask first. I happily share my growing knowledge of the area and have a book that is growing based on visitors recommendations. Should we be organising something you will be more than welcome to join in.
The location in the middle of nature with the hills around and still the option to walk into the village when you want to. Either stay up with the deer and listen to the owls or stroll into the village and listen to the stories in the local, 200 year old historic café.
It is really good to have a car or a bike here - unless you wish to explore Camplong/Graissesac by foot and experiment with the 2 buses per day.
Other Things to Note
I request that guests book in between 17h and 19h or we make another arrangement. I like to be on site for arrival and welcome.
Eating and shopping both need a little planning - I suggest that you shop or reserve a restaurant beforehand since Camplong is a small village with grocery shop open in the mornings and two restaurants that prefer reservations : «Café Joucla» or La Roulhotte.
Nearby Lunas Sous les Platanes or Bedarieux Le Local the Bio shop in Bedarieux which serves lunch with organic and vegetarian food:
Meals can be arranged at the house, usually vegetarian and organic local produce.
Cecile runs the grocery and is also very helpful.
The nearest supermarket is La Tour sur Orbe ten minutes by car.
I speak fluent English and French and am happy to try to answer questions.
no smoking indoors - laughter encouraged everywhere
I like to meet people to learn about different places and cultures so I am really happy to bring my love of people and nature together in this part of the world.
