A family story
Since 1985, we have created, brought to life and developed this campsite according to our values:
Help you to:
⭐️ Make unforgettable memories
⭐️ Live a unique holiday experience
⭐️ Discover, respect and appreciate everything around us (nature, humans or local history)
… In short, to help you really enjoy your vacation.
Even today we are committed to more eco-responsible and more sustainable tourism.
We are committed to reducing our negative impact on nature.
As it is the small drops that make the big rivers, here are some of our actions, our organizational or layout choices that make your holidays greener and more responsible.
Stay at Gerrit
Over the years, the campsites that only accommodated your tents, vans and caravans (… as well as a few cows and sheep) have been equipped with ever more comfortable, more unusual… and above all unique accommodation
Glamping tents (new in summer 2023)

Le Gerrit ?
But by the way... what does "the Gerrit" mean?
“Eth jerit” which is pronounced “èt yèrit” is a word in local patois which has been “Anglicized” in “gerrit”. It is used to designate an area on the edge of the village.
The entrance to our campsite is in the center of the village of Marsous and the land extends over more than a hectare in the meadow that the Marsouins (😉 the inhabitants of Marsous) have always called “the Gerrit”.
In fact, it is also the “official” name that has been given to this entire area of the village (on the cadastral map in particular). Thus, there is the rue du Gerrit, the stream of Gerrit, the path of Gerrit… and therefore our campsite is called “le Gerrit”… quite simply.
Attention there is no U after the G… if you pronounce “Guerrit” it is the Dutch translation of the first name Gérard
😉 and not the name of our campsite.
