FYI : 2 tents only AND no campfire, no lighting on gas fire (in Ardèche, it is forbidden to make some fire from June 1st till October 1st), no waste, no noise that may bother the neighborhood. You will have to bring your camping equipment because we don't have any. The number of on-site people (on campsite + in the holiday cottage) may not exceed 6 people.
