Camping Les Tours is located in an area of lakes, deep cut gorges and has a wealth of picturesque Medieval 'Plus Beaux' – or ‘extra beautiful’ - villages not far away, where the famous Pilgrimage of Saint Jacques de Compostella passes through. Just about every hilltop here is topped by an Oratory, and also rewards you with 360-degree views of stunning volcanic mountain ranges. The roads are quiet too, so it's easy to get around and also to wander at your own pace and in peace. Agriculture is very diverse here, with small-scale farming, orchards and even a few wineries set on ancient terraces. Visit in May and you’ll see the lovely festival of Transhumance, when the cattle are moved to higher pastures decorated with flowers and the plateau is full of wild meadow flowers.
To help you make the most of your Active Walking parc, we offer these useful extras on all walking parcs:
- Bespoke Eurocamp Walking booklet with 6 walking routes £5
