The Owner Says
Features & FacilitiesExcellent shower and toilet blocks, cleaned 3 times a day, including spacious family bathrooms, baby changing and disabled facilities. There are two swimming pools and a paddling pool with a terraced poolside area, café-restaurant (open daily July / August and weekends out of peak season), a reception area with plenty of tourist information and a 'grocery corner' selling essentials. There is outdoor table tennis and boules, plus an indoor lounge area with a central wood-burning stove, board and card games, books to borrow and a television. There is no Wi-Fi on site but a computer with internet is available.
ActivitiesThe campsite is 5km from the Pont d'Arc, a natural bridge, located at the entrance to the Ardèche Gorges and now an unmissable symbol of the Ardèche region. You'll see it on all the postcards. From just outside the campsite you can descend the Ardèche Gorges by canoe or kayak. Several routes exist, but all the locals recommend the 24km one. You can grab all the information from reception or pop into the Vallon Pont d'Arc Tourist Office (0033 4 7588 0401). By Vallon Pont d'Arc there is also a magnificent cave (0033 4 7594 3940) – a prehistoric site discovered in 1994 with ancient wall engravings.
Food & DrinkThe café-restaurant opens for breakfast or you can order fresh bread and pastries the evening before, collect it in the morning and eat it back at the tent. Meals generally start at around €10 and there are freshly made pizzas along with grilled meats. The outside terrace has fantastic views. BBQs are available for anyone to use in the communal areas dotted around the site.
