Parc reviews

Parc highlights

  • Find this parc on the banks of the Ardèche river

  • Kayaking and canoeing available on-parc

  • Hire bikes and cycle along a river path

The best way to soak up the beauty of the Ardèche is by river and when you arrive at L’Ardéchois you’ll not only find yourself beside one of the river’s loveliest stretches, but you’ll be about to enjoy camping at its most glamorous.

This is a superbly well-equipped Castels parc, just take a look at its pool complex - there are four to try. But it’s not just the pools that make this parc tailor-made for happy family afternoons, as there is a poolside bar and an ‘animateur’ who organises sports and entertainment for the whole family from mid-June. Watch out for the weekly discos held in the open-air bar. When it’s time to head off parc, delve into the forested hills and quiet lanes of the Ardèche and discover quintessential French villages. You might even find Vallon Pont d'Arc, one of the region’s real gems.

      Everything was perfect... The location with a lovely village in walking distance. The stunning park with friendly staff. The beautiful safari tent. And all on the banks of the beautiful Ardeche river. Because we booked out of season the price was extremely good value and Brian our host was very helpful.

      we just loved this camp site. We only had two nights there, because we were doing a motorcycle tour, and we stayed here on our way back up from the south coast.
      the rep was just great and very friendly, the camp site backs onto the river and its a beautiful setting. the near by village is a short walk away, and worth the walk.
      we will come here again.

      we had a fantastic honeymoon at vallon pont d'arc, but the journey was massive and I would recommend breaking up the holiday at other sites on the way there. the courier was absolutely amazing bless him he hadn't had a day off in wks only been there 4 wks but seemed to know everything you needed to know about the surrounding area. we didn't get his name but if you can please express to him how impressed we were with him and if the site was nearer we would return just to go and meet him again, fantastic man.
