August 14th, 2018 Just off the main road

as describe by Elki. Tent is probably possible too (but grass is high)
Assez de place pour 3-4 grand camping-car. Terrain plat, herbe et gravillons, de chaque coté d'un chemin pour tracteur qui rejoindre plusieurs champs.
À l'abri des regards de la route, mais pas du bruit de la circulation. Ça reste malgré tout un bivouac qu'on a aimé.
Les herbes sont hautes, mais ça doit être possible en tente.

Bonne bière artisanale, la Puka. Notre meilleur resto des Balkans.
