The space

A peaceful self catering retreat for nature lovers by a traditional village with its shop and 200 year old café restaurant in a national park. Leave happier than when you arrive.
People come here for the peace and quiet and you will have your own private space inside and out.
Situated in one acre of parkland with direct access to the forest and arboretum or a gentle stroll to a traditional small French village in the national park of Hérault, near the route de St Jacques de Compostelle.
2 private rooms attached to main house (where the owner lives with a friendly dog).
1st room double futon, private shower sitting room & balcony.
2nd twin downstairs with summer kitchen and access by external stairs to bathroom.
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!

Guest access

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 cold (only) 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 apartment is 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 neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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.

We really enjoyed our stay at Pied sur Terre, and Deborah was a friendly, generous hostess. It was a pleasure to get to know her. The accommodation was cosy with lots of homely touches that made us feel comfortable. Access to the property was a bit tricky, and it was quite some distance from a large town, so we didn't feel very enthusiastic about venturing out too much, but we did enjoy just being in the garden and walking in the local area. A relaxing trip - and we don't often do 'relaxing', so it was very different for us, but enjoyable all the same.

I can only say good things about the house and the host. The house is a bit outside the small village of Camplong, so it is very quiet and perfect for relaxing and decompressing if you're stressed out. It comes with a huge and nice garden, surrounded by forest and hills. Very easy to get around for walks and short hikes. Since the location is quite remote, you'll need a car to go and see some of the beautiful spots in the wider area. Deborah is a warm-hearted host, giving you as much space and quiet as you need - and provides great company as well.

J'ai passé un merveilleux séjour chez Deborah, une personne adorable. La maison est situé dans un écrin de verdure à l'entré du village. On s'y sent tout de suite comme à la maison. Communication parfaite avec Deborah avant l'arrivé et disponible en cas de besoin pendant le séjour. Magnifique région à visiter et de très très belles randos à proximité.
