The Owner Says
Nestled amongst the trees, these family friendly canvas tents are the perfect place for family holidays, of up to five people!
There is a large and spacious living/dining area, with a fully kitted out kitchenette, and your very own private shower and toilet facilities.Sleeping quarters are: one double bedroom, and a second bedroom with three single beds (bunk beds and a single). Please bring your own bedding or hire these as an additional extra.
The large wooden terrace with its awning is the perfect setting for al fresco dining any time of the day.
Within the site, you'll find lots of amenities and services including our fully-licensed café-restaurant with terrace serves drinks, ice creams, salads and homemade pizzas. Because we are committed to working with local producers, fresh bread is delivered every morning and guests can pre-order bread and pastries the day before.
The site also has a tourist information point and central Lodge with a TV area, board games and library corner. There is free Wi-Fi access in the central lodge and its terrace and in wood trailers and mobile homes as well as an internet terminal at reception. A free baby kit is available upon request (except in July-August).
Other services on site include a grocery shop, fridge and BBQ hire, laundry, bike hire and sheet and towel hire. There is an outdoor pool and paddling pool (usually available from end of April to mid-September), Kids' Club & family activities (peak season only), playground, ping pong tables and petanque, volleyball and tennis courts.
Features & FacilitiesFully accessible shower blocks with baby-changing areas. Laundry area with washing machine and dryer (tokens on sale at reception) and a campers' corner at reception selling basic camping items. A small grocery store also sells food basics and regional specialities. The site has a fully renovated central lodge, a sociable place open throughout the season that has a café and library, a wood-burning stove and TV room.
ActivitiesWallow 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 & DrinkOrder 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.
