General

  • Rural site on a farm 10 minutes' drive from Forcalquier
  • Canoe trips and hot air balloon flights within a 10-minute drive
  • Horse, pony and donkey riding available on site

If you like a bit of farmyard fun, you’ve come to the right place at Ferme Equestre Les Coccinelles, a rural site 10 minutes’ drive from fab Forcalquier.

As you might have figured from the name, the main residents here are horses and ponies – and many are available for riding tours of the property and local area. Wherever you lie on the sliding scale from beginner to horse mad, owner Frédéric will match you up with a suitable equine partner before leading you out around the area.

Once you’ve finished horsing around, sheep, lambs, donkeys and goats are also around waiting to be petted and fed, or you could wander down to the Lauzon river passing the farm’s border, to see if you can spot any aquatic wildlife and maybe have a paddle to cool down on a warm day.

There’s peace and quiet in spades around here – depending on which part of the farm you choose to stay in, the main noises you’ll hear are either the trickle of the river or the chat of the farm animals. Wherever you base yourselves, you’ll not be far from the facilities of the main building, including toilets, showers and a washing machine. You’ll also be able to access free wifi around the site.

Bistros aplenty are in the area for eating out; if you'd rather self cater, a supermarket and speciality grocery shops are in Forcalquier. Just remember not to eat your dins within goggling distance of the goats – they can be partial to nibbling just about anything you care to name...

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Dogs are not allowed in the on-site accommodations.

    Vast open farm land, picturesque settings next to a river, waterfall and fungal forests. It was wonderful to interact with the horses, donkeys, cats and dogs. Facilities were perfect with hot showers, free washing machine and toilets. The owner Frédéric was the most charming man we have met in Provence.

Bonjour,

La Ferme Equestre Les Coccinelles vous accueille aussi bien en camping, qu’en gîté tout confort, ou tout simplement pour une découverte à poney ou à cheval, au milieu de ses animaux et à proximité de la rivière Lauzon…

Comme son nom l'indique, il s'agit d'un camping à la ferme, les sanitaires ont eau chaude, machine à laver à disposition ....

Merci beaucoup pour votre commentaire,

Au plaisir de vous revoir,

Frédéric

Comme son nom l'indique, il s'agit d'un camping à la ferme, les sanitaires ont eau chaude, machine à laver à disposition .... Et vous avez payé 10 euros ....

Pour plus de confort, il existe un camping 4 étoiles à proximité immédiate.

Je suis désolé de ne pas avoir pu vous rencontrer, je suis rentré tard de mon travail et reparti tôt le matin....

Bien à vous,

Abgelegemer Bauernhof, saubere Sanitäranlagrn, herzlicher Gastgeber 12/31/2018

    Wundervoll friedlicher Bauernhof in Mitten der Provence!
    Der herzlich, offene Gastgeber Frederic empfing uns spontan und ohne Voranmeldung.
    Neben Ponys, Eseln und dem verschmusten Wachhund haben wir seelenruhig mit unseren zwei Hunden im Zelt schlafen können.
    Tagsüber haben wir die wunderschöne Provence erkundet, entlang von Thymian und Lavendel geschmückten Wegen!
    Im Umkreis von 15min findet man mit dem Auto Supermärkte, Tankstellen und den schönen Ort Forcalquier, in dem man ab 1900 auch gut Essen gehen kann!
    Dieser Ort ist perfekt, um dem stressigen Alltag zu entkommen und in die verschlafenen Schönheiten der Provence einzutauchen!

Directions


Local attractions

Fab Forcalquier a 10-minute drive is packed with old buildings to visit, including a 13th-century convent and a 12th-century cathedral. Take a walk too into the surrounding countryside to wander among the lavender fields and the mushroom-shaped rock formations of the mourres: pics essential.

From the hilltop setting of Lurs, also a 10-minute drive away, potter out of the village along the Promenade des Eveques, to reach a small chapel among spectacular views of poppies, lavender and olive trees to the mountains beyond.

Getting active, get out onto the Durrance river via a kayak trip from Villeneuve, again 10 minutes from the farm. If you prefer to look down on your surroundings, take to the skies for an aerial view by joining a hot air balloon flight from Forcualquier: pics highly essential here too.
