Paturage au Jura Neuchâtelois

43 Reviews


The pastures here in the Neuchâtel Jura are wild and dotted with tall fir trees and stone walls. Many cows and cattle graze here over the summer and their bell ringing can be heard from afar. Otherwise you will find complete silence and a completely clear starry sky. The land around it I would like to share with you.

Since my retirement I spend a lot of time here and renovate the building or just enjoy the nature. The property has no electricity and water and the toilet is outside the house. This we share. On the spacious meadow you can put your tent or bus wherever you like. I recommend to bring wedges. There is a fireplace and a big table behind the house. You are welcome to use them. A mountain restaurant is located about 500m at the end of the road. (Closed in winter). We are in the area of the "Fee Verte" (Absinthe)​,​ the Val-de-Travers with the Creux-du-Van​,​ the recreational resort Buttes ​/​ La Robella or the via ferrata Noiraigue.

    The place is beautifully situated! In the middle of the forest, but still on a spacious clearing. Pure tranquility. We were surprised in the evening by a rain shower, but the atmosphere in the morning was tremendous. As described by Marcel, the infrastructure is simple - but it does not need more. Thank you Marcel for sharing this place with us!

    It would have been a sensational place, but we had to look for another place to stay because the ground was not passable due to very heavy rainfall at that time. Except land damage, unfortunately, I could not leave anything else, for this I would like to apologize to Marcel. We will be back, no question, when it's drier again. Kind regards Patrik and Claudia.

    The site is located in a clearing, secluded and quiet for direct hiking in the Jura world (Jura pastures, rocky gorges). For excursions to the Chasseron, Creux du Van, etc. you have to move the camper.

    a simple place without much comfort, but in the middle of wonderful nature, very quiet, you are fully to yourself (because the host usually does not live there), beautiful starry sky, close to the Creux-du-Van, very nice contact with Marcel via the Nomady website :-)

    The site is as described by Marcel, beautifully located in nature. He himself is very nice and has joined us with absinthe. We also met part of his family the next day. Really highly recommended, we (2 humans and 1 female dog) would come back anytime. The Jura is really beautiful and the time out has done very well.
