We are Toos and Wim Verkuijl: it has always been our dream to set up a little campsite in France, so we went searching for a property to make our dream come true.
In 2008 we found a little farmhouse in Burgundy that had not been lived in for more than twenty years and decided to buy the farm, which had enough land (more than 5000 m²) to realise our plans.


As we are both retired, in 2009 we made use of the opportunity to set up our little campsite. It has become "La Prise": we chose this name because this is what the road is called and because we liked the sound of it.
On the farm we have lots of grape vines, cherry trees, plum trees, apple trees and pear trees. Our little farm is situated in the hamlet of “Les Crots Maillots”, in the community of Cossaye, not far from Decize in the department of Nièvre, about 477 kilometers or 296 miles from Le Havre.


Burgundy is divided into four departments: Yonne, Côte-d’Or, Saône-et-Loire and Nièvre.


With this website we want to keep you informed about our campsite, the chalet (new built in 2016) and the caravan that we rent out. We hope to be able to welcome you soon for a relaxing holiday on our little campsite.


If your caravan is more than 5.5 metres long, let us know beforehand, (site is not suitable for tendamassers) then you can use the back entrance to the campsite.


We regret that we do not have facilities for emptying your chemical toilet, as this would impair the functioning of the septic tank.
