Camping a la ferme is a great set-up - the farmers only have to provide some basics (toilets, showers and hot water) and are granted the right to host a small number of tents.
There was one night when we camped on our own, and even at the weekend there were only two other groups of campers.
We chose to camp in a field far from the hot water and toilets (honestly, with three males, who needs those things?), and with no neighbours at all.
It all made for lots of mellow lounging about, or cricket-catching, in the case of Son 2.
But yesterday, the nearby village (about 2 miles away) was hosting an end of summer Vide Grenier!We parked in a field and ambled down the village street in some baking heat.
It was fun going to a Vide Grenier in an area with a different history to our own, as very different things were for sale. Even though it was only a short holiday, I have lots to tell and photos to share.
