From canoeing and canyoning, to cycling and climbing

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 water playground for toddlers, and activities like tennis and volleyball. At the end of the day, you can relax over a drink in the pleasant bar, and enjoy a lively programme of activities in high season, including cabarets and a disco. Strike out into the countryside for spirited days out exploring medieval hill towns; try Balazuc and its colourful market, where you can stock up on provisions for a riverside picnic on the way home.

The area is stunning. The Eurocamp reps were excellent- couldn’t have been more helpful. The accommodation was small and tired. The lower pool had poor plastic sun beds, entertainment always in French. (Not a massive issue as we didn’t really go for the entertainment- but some may be bothered). Upper pool once discovered was MUCH better option. Closeness of river good but inflatables and river shoes needed to get full potential from it.

We had an amazing holiday, warm welcome from our couriers who later came to seee how we were settling in. One of the windows was not locking and our courier immediately went to get some tools and fixed it. The pool complex was fantastic and really made the holiday for us, no need to get up early and no reserving of sun beds. The lifeguards have a walk round and turn down the towels on unattended beds then return after about a half hour later and move the belongings if the towels are still down. Our children enjoyed the mini disco although it was a bit a short, evening entertainment was cheesy and catered more for the French but the team were enthusiastic. Waiter service was helpful too. There is a nice river by the campsite so would encourage those who fish to bring a rod, lovely river swimming about 5 mins from the site. We went to Pont d’arc Which was busy but worth it, Balazuc was beautiful and the evening market at Ruoms is worth a visit. We shall return to this site!!

Very clean park. The adjacent river was fabulous (27C water temp in July). Fish in abundance so obviously a very clean river. Off site cannoning and kayaking were excellent although give yourself 2 extra hours than you think for the half day kayaking. Food was good - best to goto the bookable restaurant on site. Ice cream was brilliant - get the chestnut flavour! Pools excellent as usual. Night time entertainment wasn't the best but hey that's a minor thing. Family of 5 with kids of 15, 13 and 11 loved it. Would recommend.
