Why not a vacation in a small campsite?


If you want to spend a holiday on a farm or on a human-sized campsite, you will find what you are looking for in the clearing of verbamont. The family and friendly campsite is managed by a very small team, Christophe the owner takes care of everything.


Children love to take care of animals, feed the duck bread, try to catch a rabbit to pet it or feed it with peels. In the morning you even have to watch the children so that they do not collect all the eggs to give them to their families! Bernard and Bernadette, our Indian runner ducks as well as Jacqueline and Jacquot our geese will pique your curiosity.


At the reception, in your rental or on our electronic or paper welcome booklet, you will find good addresses to buy local products, ideas for walks with the family, walking circuits from 4 to 25 km. So for all tastes, whether you like lakes and swimming, trails to observe animals, places to pet them or the best places to go blueberry picking, everything is indicated and Christophe, your host will be happy to advise you


No rural lodging with us but unusual accommodation which allows a more outward-facing stay. Halfway between the campsite and the guest room, you will have breakfast brought to the terrace of your cabin each morning, but the freedom to cook in the common kitchen area.

A catering service is at your disposal with either the table d'hôte basket, a complete home-cooked menu brought to your cabin, the table d'hote shared with other campers or cabanneurs, or the famous all-you-can-eat pizza evenings. Guaranteed atmosphere! Our products are mostly extra local since they come from the garden cultivated in permaculture and we work with local farmers in organic farming or "reasoned" for meat.

You can participate in the harvest of vegetables or fruits in summer.


You also have the possibility of pitching your tent in the few camping pitches equipped with electricity and in the shade, this will allow you to go on an ecological holiday with a small budget.


Our rentals are open from March to November and we organize competitions in April around Easter, in June around the garden & natural ecological method. Spring is an ideal period to find the fresh air of the Vosges at the end of winter, in the accommodation it is likely that you will be woken up by the birds of the forest, it is bird season.

In autumn, picking mushrooms, grilled chestnuts are activities loved by all, grandparents, parents and children set out on foot from their accommodation in search of porcini mushrooms, chanterelles and other sheep's feet. The colors of autumn due to a forest of mostly deciduous trees makes it a treat for photography lovers.


Find our tips, promotions and special offers on Facebook or Instagram, the link is on our website.

Our availability and reservations are made online directly on our site, Christophe your host is at your disposal to give you the best information in order to calmly prepare your unusual family vacation in the Vosges.
