Charming campsite, small-scale, lots of nature, scenic view

Our campsite is situated at the border of the national parc The Ecrins at an altitude of 1450 meters. You take on your hiking boots in front of your tent and you could start hiking right away. Over here camping is what it’s meant to be. You’ll have a look at the rocks of The Ecrins, beautiful valleys and the glacier of Pelvoux. A three star campsite means clean sanitary facilities with hot showers and a good service. Most of the 50 places have access to electricity and there are several water taps. Every morning we serve you fresh bread! We invite you to come over, so we could show you all the beautiful places. See you in Puy Saint Vincent.

We will be open from June 1st until September 15th.
Come and enjoy a beautiful summer in the National Parc des Ecrins!

The Yurt

Comfortable in the middle of nature

A yurt is an ancient nomadic residence, that invites you to go back to basic. It fits perfectly with our mountain campsite where we love to life close to the nature.

Feel at home!

In Mongolia is a yurt 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 warmed inside in spring and autumn. We have one yurt on our campsite, what makes it more special to stay in this. The yurt’s furniture is simple but warm, we have made use of good quality material. We’ve renovated the yurt in 2017.


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.

Rock Climbing

Near by Puy Saint Vincent

The Hautes Alps are situated in Provence between Gap (to the south west), Grenoble (to the north west) and the Italian border (to the west) near by Puy Saint Vincent. The area is sometimes referred to as the Southern Alps or the Ecrins and enjoys better weather than the Northern Alps around Chamonix and it is considerably quieter. In fact this area claims to have 300 days of sunshine a year, stays a lot drier, and offers year-round rock climbing by choosing your crag carefully.

High season

Lively. Families. Cosy. Outdoors. Make your own pizza

During summer holidays (July and August) there are mainly families on our campsite. Children meet each other at the playground or during our pizza evening.

The terraces make you feel being in nature and not on a crowded campsite.

Every Sunday we have a ‘pot d’accueill’. A drink where you’ll meet other people and the place you could sign up for outdoor activities, organised by the outdoor companies of this area. If you would like to go rafting, climbing, paragliding, canyoning, something for everyone.

Every week on Sunday we have our pizza evening, where everyone could make their own pizza!

Low season

Space. Silence. Lots of sun. Nature

If 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).
