We took over this campsite in 2021, for love of nature, with our 3 children, our 2 dogs, our 2 cats, our rooster and our chickens. We decided to change our life to live in harmony with nature, to find a kind of food and energy autonomy, in a spirit of sharing and conviviality. We bring with us our respective passions that we wish to share.
“What nature gives us, we must preserve”.
This is why we want to engage our campsite in an ecological transition and limit our impact on the environment.
We are the 1 st campsite in the Benelux not to be connected to the electricity grid, we produce our own electricity mainly with solar energy!
We have many other projects to implement to make our campsite more autonomous and eco-responsible (for example by developing a better waste management and a sustainable water management)
We want to set up a vegetable garden and a basic grocery store. It is important to us to promote local producers. We have our own laying hens and you can already find our fresh eggs in our small grocery store
We hope to develop a place to reconnect with nature, we will preserve wild areas to observe the fauna and flora. We also hope to organize workshops to promote knowledge exchange.
Come and discover our vision of camping and help us to develop in this way, so many things remain to be done!
THE CASTOR, totem of the builders
The Beaver is the symbol of Construction. He is an engineer capable of great creativity to realize complex architectures. Like man, it likes to settle in a favorable environment and to build its habitat, it cuts down dozens of trees, diverts rivers, creates dams and knows how to retain water.
The Beaver is faithful all its life and stays with its family on the same territory. In this, it is also the totem of the family and the construction of the clan.
The Beaver is a being of action, taking its energy from the Earth and Water, it has a strong sense of family and home
If you look at the dams that line the streams in our forests, you will find many entrances and exits. Indeed, when he builds his house, the Beaver always sees several ways to escape. This habit sheds light on the need to avoid putting our backs against the wall and imposing too many limits on ourselves.
Equipped with sharp teeth, the Beaver has all it takes to cut down trees, imagine the havoc its teeth could wreak! It is also armed with a tail that is used both for rowing and for guarding its back. You have to admit that this little mammal has everything it takes to protect its creations! Admire the power of the work done and the pride we take in it.
Achieving a goal together requires team spirit and a sense of family. With several people, it is easier to realize your dreams. The team spirit favors harmony, each partner appreciates the talent of the others and knows how to take care of the task at hand.
The CASTOR message
I am the Beaver, I am the master of engineers, totem of builders…
I know how to build my home, how to commit to developing the territory necessary to settle my family and educate my children, without nudging those who are already settled.
I will help you find your place on Earth by contributing to the construction of a New World. Would you like to participate in the construction of this new world? A more just world based on balance, beauty and nature? So I’m going to help you build your house, both inside and out, from the foundation to the finishing touches.

We pay tribute to the Beaver. We love balance and harmony and we take the time to design the environment that is right for us and our children. We are committed to helping build that world.
