Parc reviews

Parc highlights

  • A great pool complex with slides and a spray park for little ones

  • Eurocamp Active - rock climb at a selection of nearby crags

  • Sample the restaurants at the lively town of Ruoms

Unleash the action hero within, canoeing and canyoning your way down the river systems of the Ardèche. Or stay dry and cycle instead - there are plenty of riverside cycle lanes to discover.

St Alban is a lightly shaded parc, close to the Chassezac river system, with two inviting swimming pools, a recently developed water playground for toddlers, and activities like archery and horse riding. Think lively days and you’re getting warm! At the end of the day, you can relax over a drink in the pleasant bar. The parc becomes lively in high season, too, with a full programme of entertainment that includes cabarets and a disco. Strike out into the countryside for spirited days out exploring medieval hill towns. Try Balazuc, with its colourful market, and you can stock up on provisions for a riverside picnic on the way home.

    Climbing

    cs-climbing-header

    The Ardêche is the perfect setting for a wide range of outdoor activities, including many natural cliffs to tempt climbers. This ruggedly beautiful region has been shaped by the mighty Ardêche river, which has created narrow gorges as well as forming the colossal Ardêche canyon. The Grotte des Branches cave on the banks of the river is definitely worth a climb and offers shade all day to make summer climbing here even more of a pleasure. You’ll also find that the Ardêche river and streams, which are at the base of many climbs, provide the ideal place to take a dip and cool off, giving those tired muscles a welcome treat at the end of a challenging climb.

    The parc was busy but generally the areas away from the bar were peaceful so we could choose quiet or busy. The pool area was really good and keep our children happy for hours.We wished we had chosen a higher spec for the mobile home as the fittings etc in the Horizon were quite tired and it was quite cramped compared to other Eurocamp Mobile Homes we have stayed in. There is a lot to do in the area and the scenery and landscapes make it a really interesting area to visit.

    The camp was fantastic; great facilities, super clean and tidy swimming pools, access to the river, entertainment every evening (if you wanted it), good shop for basics and the camp generally was clean, tidy and well maintained. The Ardeche is a beautiful area of France; plenty to see and do - historic towns and villages to visit; we kayaked down the river; pony-trekked amongst the vineyards and made a day trip to Avignon; and also had relaxing days spent on the campsite either by the river or by the pool.
