Alan Rogers Review
Albirondack Park is ideal for campers seeking something out of the ordinary. This site has a selection of rental accommodation, including Airstream caravans and chalets raised to tree top height. The 54 touring pitches are well shaded and all have 10A electricity. Some of the pitches, which are separated by low wooden barriers giving no privacy, vary in size (60-100 sq.m) so can be a little awkward for large units. The outdoor heated swimming pool, sauna and steam rooms are open all year, as is the modern restaurant which is open to non-residents. Located on the outskirts of Albi (2 km) the site is relatively quiet; a traffic-free path leads to the town - don’t forget to take a torch for evening walks.
The site is close to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Albi with its Bishops’ palace and historical bridges over the River Tarn. The town boasts the large, red brick Cathedral of Saint Cécile and a museum dedicated to Toulouse-Lautrec, born in Albi. Many reasonably priced restaurants and bars can be found in the old narrow streets. The surrounding countryside is rich in orchids and wildlife, many of the Midi-Pyrenees sights are within easy reach. Short cruises can be taken along the Tarn.
