Services at the Mettey campsite
Our shared vegetable garden
Our shared permaculture vegetable garden is in the centre of our eco-friendly campsite.
Permaculture is an approach to agriculture based on the principles of sustainable development and respect of both biodiversity and humans. It aims to imitate the design of natural ecosystems.
The harvests from the garden are available at reception with open pricing: you pay what seems right to you!
Camping du Mettey also has a keyhole garden for herbs. This small, high-yield garden is self-fertile and requires little water. Its name comes from its shape, a raised bed with a keyhole-shaped indentation so gardeners can reach the centre. This type of garden uses the positive effects of borders, creating microclimates that favour biodiversity and the different plants. It also has a built-in composter in the centre of the circle to keep the soil fertile. Composting promotes exchanges between the composted matter and the substrate that surrounds it. Worms and other decomposers can move freely between the central composter and the substrate, spreading nutrients throughout the keyhole garden in a slow and harmonious way.
In 2022, we built a walipini at Camping du Mettey! This underground greenhouse passively and naturally absorbs the heat of the sun and the earth to grow fresh fruits and vegetables naturally all year round! The crops are kept at a constant temperature (between 10 and 15°C, even in winter, and are protected from the external elements.

The Vosges Mountains are home to lots of surprising specialties, and you’ll find a nice selection at the eco-campsite’s grocery store!

La serre walipini
Le walipini est une technique de culture qui utilise l’énergie thermique et solaire. C’est une technique efficace pour faire pousser des plantes dans des environnements hostiles.
Une fois le walipini creusé dans le sol, il est recouvert d’un revêtement translucide pour capter un maximum de lumière et la diriger vers les cultures en contrebas. Certes, les cultures sont moins exposées à la lumière que les serres traditionnelles aux murs et toits translucides, mais l’inertie thermique est bien meilleure et les écarts de température sont moindres.
La Terre est thermiquement stable, c’est-à-dire qu’à une profondeur donnée, il y a peu ou pas de changement de température quelle que soit la température extérieure. Dans la grotte, la température est toujours comprise entre 12 et 14°C même si en extérieur il fait 35°C ou -15°C. La géothermie, l’énergie contenue dans le sol peut ainsi être utilisée pour faire pousser des plantes.
Autre avantage : en raison de l’inertie thermique de la Terre, elle capte la chaleur des rayons solaires et de l’atmosphère et la stocke pour la libérer lorsque le temps se refroidit. C’est pourquoi la construction de ce type de serre souterraine est si intéressante.
The charging point for electric vehicles
As part of our responsible approach, the campsite has recently equipped itself with a recharging station for its residents equipped with electric vehicles. It is located at the reception of the campsite and is available upon reservation.
Our laundry area is near the reception of our eco-campsite.
At your service is an 8 kg washing machine, a 6 kg dryer, and laundry detergent. The machines are coin operated, and laundry detergent is for sale at reception.
Our facilities are located near the main building of the campsite. They were designed to respect the environment, for a comfortable, accessible, and quality experience, all while preserving our planet’s natural resources.
For example, all the faucets are timed and equipped with flow reducers limited to 6 L/min, which we’ve found is more than enough!

The shared library
Books should journey from hand to hand. The shared library is for exchanging, lending, giving, receiving, or borrowing a book. It’s free of charge and open to everyone. The box uses the honour system and is available whenever you like, based on the rules of solidarity and living together. Together, let’s give books a second life and limit our waste, while promoting exchanges, curiosity, and above all open-mindedness.
Upon arrival, pull your car up to the reception area of the campsite. You can then unload your things using our small carts and wheelbarrows. Your car, on the other hand, will remain in our private parking area outside the campsite until your departure. For a calm and safe setting for everyone, guaranteed!
