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 vigilance because there are stairs to access the garden, see photos, and please specify age of children in any queries. Sorry no pets in general but do ask:
Don't hesitate to ask any questions before booking, my aim is have happy guests!

Guest access

Guests have their own cooking and dining space. 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. A cold 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 or in the garden.

Interaction with guests

I am often in the main house with my friendly dog. However the apartment is independent and there is enough outdoor havens in the one acre grounds for peaceful privacy.
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.

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 the last bit of the road is a country track which i have signposted:
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.
Meals can be arranged at the house, usually vegetarian and organic local produce.
Cecile runs the grocery and is also extremely 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.

Deborah's place was really nice. If you want a nice casa type place with a fairly nice sized piece of land with orchard trees and hammocks and a BBQ this is great. Set in a quiet and scenic area in mountains but easy driving to get there. There is a basic but beautiful town close by and a river to swim in. She's a really friendly host and has a lot to offer. We really did not want to leave.

Beautiful, peaceful place, and wonderful host. Best Airbnb we have stayed in. Comfortable room, and guest's own kitchen, complete with coffee/tea, bread, yogurt and fruit for breakfast. Local village with shop and cafe is only a few minutes walk. Highly recommended.

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.

Situé en entrée de village, au calme, le logement est décoré avec goût et dispose d'un grand jardin et de beaucoup de boiseries. Un vrai coin de sérénité ! Côté pratique : épicerie et points de restauration à proximité immédiate. Deborah s'est rendue disponible pour nous renseigner sur les balades, restaurants et points d'accès à la rivière. Nous avons grandement apprécié nos échanges. Un séjour riche et reposant !
