The Yurt

Comfortable in the middle of nature

A traditional yurt or ger (Mongolian) is a portable, round tent covered with skins or felt and used as a dwelling by nomads in the steppes of Central Asia. It is a gentle combination of luxury and the basics from being in nature. It fits perfectly with our mountain campsite where we love to life close to the nature.

Feel at home!

In Mongolia a yurt is named a Ger, what means house or home. A meaningful name for a tent. Being together in a round space does something to you, we know by experience and hear it often of our clients.


Because of the isolation, the yurt stays cold in summer and keeps the heat inside in spring and autumn. We have one yurt on our campsite, what makes it even more special to stay in this. The yurt’s furniture is simple but warm, we have made use of good quality materials.


You wake up by the songs of birds and fall a sleep with the sound of crickets. Talk about the day by the warmed of a fire pit inside or outside. The place to relax during a comfortable stay.

Space. Silence. Lots of sun. Nature. Flowers.

f you like silence and space and listen to the sound of running water, June and September are the months to come to Puy Saint Vincent. In June the flowers bloom and the nature comes up, in September the leaves of the trees change colour.

The campsite opens the first of June, spring is everywhere by then. Everything colours green in a quite surrounding. During the day temperatures goes up to 25°C, but during the evening the temperature drops (sometimes even down to zero).

For people who like flowers or birdwatchers june is the best period. Almost empty walking trails makes nature even more spectacular. The one thing you must consider is that the alpine walking cols might still be unaccessible due to the snow.

The more busy high season starts around the 15th of july till mid august.

  • Flower meadows
  • Bird watching
