By the foot of the château and the banks of a river

It’s understandable that a river as beautiful as the Ardèche is bound to get busy in summer. So imagine having your own private beach - part of what makes La Bastide en Ardèche special!

At this Dutch-owned parc you can choose between strolling along the river’s edge or even a canoe trip through the limestone gorges. The parc rises from the grounds of the 17th century Château de Sampzon, a turreted castle surrounded by thickly wooded slopes. Explore the grounds - on cycle or foot - and you’ll find a sunny spot perfect for a picnic. Or you could choose to dine out at the parc’s restaurant or bar. When it’s time to keep cool, you’ll discover a pool complex on parc, which includes a pool especially for kids.

This was a lovely part of the holiday. The Ardeche is beautiful and tranquil. Great for hiking in the mountains and other outdoor activities. The campsite we stayed on was small, quiet and peaceful. Ideal for couples wanting a quiet stay. Don't go here if you want excitement and nightlife because you won't find it! Very cheerful, friendly staff who speak excellent English even though we speak French. Nice little shop and a great little (very clean) pool. Slightly older fashioned camping and all the better for it.

Lovely area. Great for walking, nature and relaxing in the sun. The couriers, Chris and Ayla were excellent- friendly and helpful suggesting lots of places to visit.

Great setting, site is not too big. RCN staff are excellent. Our Eurocamp couriers were a bit lacking. Never really bothered to seek us out to see if everything was ok. A few 'missed you' cards left at our tent. The previous year Jim and Bridget were always around but not obtrusive. You see, I still remember their names! This years duo lacked personality.

Great site though bit of a trek to the toilet block
Safari tent missing few items, cutlery, mirror but otherwise great
Very very loud music until midnight from camp on other side of the river which was really annoying
Facilities at sight great

Very family friendly, we'll run campsite. The Dutch-run RCN site is thoughtfully run with good facilities and helpful, friendly staff. There are only a small number of Eurocamp pitches so it does have a strongly Dutch feel, but adults and kids alike were very friendly. Great pool and slides very much enjoyed by the kids. Pitches quite close together but the park has a "Silence after 11pm" rule which is well adhered to, so is peaceful at night (in our week, anyway!).

La Bastide is a lovely medium-sized family campsite. The pools are very well maintained and the water slides are a great addition. Having the river beach as an alternative meant that the pool was not overly busy, especially in the mornings. The site is overwhelmingly Dutch, including the majority of the staff (we were one of only a handful of English families there). However luckily for us most Dutch people speak excellent English as my Dutch is pretty much non-existent. The 11pm noise curfew was observed well and the site was quiet at night. I would recommend the site for anyone wanting a great family-friendly stay with good facilities.

Camp was 90% dutch so Dutch and English spoken .
No French which was a surprise and a disappointment. Children activities were all in Dutch
Our Caravan had seen better days and was definitely inferior to our relatives two other Eurocamp vans. bits were broken (fridge shelving making bottles of milk impossible to store) or not working properly ( switches for lights), cushions and blankets felt sticky and dirty.
We arrived on Monday to be informed that all couriers were off for three days Tues - Friday. I am sure they needed a break but one of the strengths of eurocamp ( I thought) was that they had people there to help.
