One for purist campers and less dedicated 'glampers' alike, perfectly placed to discover France's unique Auvergne region

Just south of the spa town of Royat – which is itself more or less an extension of the regional capital of Clermont Ferrand – the Royat Huttopia Campsite is a beautiful woodland campsite of almost 150 flat and mostly shaded terraced pitches, and makes a wonderful spot from which to discover this amazing part of France.

The Auvergne is one of the country's most untouched and stunning regions, and the area around Puy de Dôme, where the site is situated, is truly unique. An originally volcanic region where the country's green heart has been moulded into a series of pristine peaks – what's left of now-dormant volcanoes – it's a place that makes a perfect playground for all kinds of outdoors activities: hiking, mountain-biking, horse-riding, paragliding, canoeing, swimming and more.

The campsite itself is well kitted out with pleasant and very comfortable shower blocks, and features accommodation options that have something for everyone. There are ordinary tent pitches for camping purists, spaces for campervans and caravans, along with ready-pitched wood and canvas tents and chalets for those who like a touch more comfort. It may not be the most intimate of camping spaces and is certainly on the more commercial end of the camping spectrum, but what it lacks in personality it makes up for with the location.

It couldn't be better situated if you're looking to climb Puy de Dome or explore any of the other volcanic 'puys' that make this area of France so distinctive. It's great for families, and you might want to give the nearby theme park of Vulcania a try. For grown-ups there are the spa delights of Royat at close hand, not to mention the old centre and cathedral of neighbouring Clermont Ferrand.

Nearby

Wallow in naturally warm springs (28°) at Royatonic (04 73 29 58 90), a thermal centre for fitness, relaxation and well-being (tickets cost €18 and are available at the campsite reception). You can also visit the Parc Thermale and the Gallo-Roman remains of the baths there, and the Grottes des Laveuses on the banks of the river, where there are more springs. The large city of Clermont Ferrand just beyond has an ancient centre focused on the city's Romaneque cathedral, while you could also visit the basilica of Notre-Dame-du-Port and the Old Montferrand district and its Renaissance façades.

Food & Drink

Order bread and croissants from the campsite reception each evening for the following morning. There's also a café-restaurant with terrace serving drinks, salads and homemade pizzas. In Royat, Le Picrocole (04 73 16 99 12) is a decent bistro right in the heart of town; in Clermont Ferrand, try the brilliant burgers at Bougnat Burger (07 60 12 00 63), on the southern edge of the old centre, or the very centrally placed Lard et La Maniere (04 73 35 78 65), which does good, well-priced French food, including 3-course menus for €27.

Opening Times
