Tipi in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Neuchâtel Jura
Between La Vue des Alpes and La Chaux-de-Fonds, a town listed as a Unesco heritage site, our house is located in a quiet and open area with a view of the Chasseral and the Vue des Alpes pass. The teepee area has a table in the shade, under the lime tree, and a table in the sun, as well as a fireplace with a grill for grilling. Next to it, the soccer field is a great place for outdoor activities. All around, in summer, the cows of the neighboring farmer are lounging in the pasture and their bells accompany us. The bathroom is located in our house with an independent access. There are toilets and an Italian shower. We only rent the tipi and the site to one group at a time, so you can enjoy the place as you wish. Inside the tipi, there are mattresses on pallets that you can arrange as you wish for 2, 3 or 4 people. A fifth bed can be added for a child. There is also a table and stools.
Beautiful quiet place with a lot of nature and wide views. The overnight stays in the teepee were a great experience for the whole family. We slept wonderfully despite the exceptional cold in May. The grounds are very spacious and the kids never got bored. We really enjoyed cooking on and spending time around the fire. Everything is very lovingly furnished and the hosts are extremely friendly and accommodating. Many thanks for everything Jean-Fred and Aline, we will be very happy to come back! Sandra, Pascal and children

A great experience! Beautiful place, the tepee is very comfortable, apart from a place to make a fire (it's deliciously cold even during the heat wave!) and an ingenious and practical grill. A clean and well decorated toilet is available as well as a full kitchen - and a large living room with sofas / dining table (for rainy days, just in case). Everything is there to please. Jean-Fred and Aline are great hosts, friendly and always available. We could admire an incredible sky and enjoy the silence and the nature in family, and also visit the surroundings (the Saut du Doubs, the view of the Alps). Stay 21/20, we highly recommend! Thank you very much Jean-Fred and Aline!

We, family with 3 children, spent a wonderful weekend in the teepee of Boinod and had a blast. The kids loved playing on the soccer field and the sand field and making a fire first thing in the morning. The two playful dogs that we were allowed to meet on request made the kids laugh and there were lots of sticks thrown. The curious cows were also nice neighbors. :) The facilities around the beautiful campsite in the garden were luxurious: there was access to a large lounge with a table football and a well-equipped kitchen and we were allowed to use the bathroom. The hosts were very warm and gave us many good tips for excursions in the area. And on the day of departure, the kids were allowed to go for a ride on a quad bike and help fetch wood at the nearest carpentry shop. A great adventure for them. We recommend this place to anyone looking for a bit of peace and quiet from the crowds at the campsites and to discover the wonderful Neuchâtel Jura. Highlight: the starry sky and the huge moon at night. By the way, we caught a heat weekend, which is very pleasant to spend at almost 1200 m above sea level! Just the right temperatures for nights in the tent. Gladly we return again to this great place!

What an idyllic place! We had a very nice stay with Jean-Frédéric and Aline. The family was extremely accommodating, we lacked nothing. Except maybe warmer temperatures at night;-). In the teepee it can sleep well, linger in the hammocks and at the fireplace we would have liked to end the evening (but were then too tired.) A very nice experience, come back with pleasure. Merci infiniment pour tout!
