    Climbing

    cs-climbing-header

    Our parc at Castellane is located just a scenic 30km drive away from probably the best known and most visited sports climbing area in Europe. The Verdon Gorge is a huge limestone cliff that rises up to 700m high, with some routes only accessible by abseiling from the top. You’ll also reach some of the other popular routes by walking through tunnels at the bottom of what is widely regarded as Europe’s most stunning canyon. In fact, the longest tunnel is a massive 670 metres long, pitch black and requires you to get wading in places, adding even more adventure to your climbs in the Verdon Gorge. The incredible scenery and range of climbs really has to be seen to be believed, with 1500 established routes that include beginners’ and middle grade single pitch routes with easy access.

    Great Park though quite large and would not have llked to have been there when it was fuller as the poo;s would certainly not have been able to accommodate over 900 people ( number of pitches)
    Couriers were helpful , needed the heating in the caravan as it does get really cold in the nights , would be good to warn folks , we always bring sleeping bags and we did need them. Unfortunately we arrived as most .of the facilities , pizzeria, cocktail bar and take away closed down But we have enjoyed ouraelves and it was good.

    What a gorgeous spot - only for people who don't mind some hair raising driving to get there though. This campsite is for the tougher holiday maker who is adventurous and appreciates the beauty the area has to offer - as well of course as those loving adventure sports.

    Good location. Very remote and tricky to get to though and forget phone reception or wi-fi reception!! Amenities good at the campsite. Shower and toilet blocks very clean. Worst aspect was the evening entertainment which was dire and very poorly attended as a result which made the evenings a bit of a damp squib. Highlight was Thursday night foam party which went down a storm with all the kids. The location of this campsite though is truly stunning.

    Eurocamp caravans right next to reception/stage which had very loud live music or disco and DJ blaring until at least 11pm every night and on one occasion until well after midnight. This was followed by an hour of teenagers shouting and singing. It was torture every night. Unable to sleep. Kids all tired. Definitely not a campsite if you want to relax in the evening or for children less than teenage. Pretty awful. Thought we were going to relax in beautiful Provence.
