Alan Rogers Review
This well cared for site lies just outside the walls of the bastide town of Navarrenx. It is owned and run by a British couple, Richard and Wendy Curtis, who take great pride in their site. Many bushes and trees have been planted and a total of 54 touring pitches are available either on hardstanding with full services or on grass, the latter having more shade. A traffic-free track leads to the town where all essential shops can be found. Richard trained as a pizzaiolo and offers fresh pizzas in the evenings. Located within driving distance of the Atlantic coast and the Pyrenees, this is a good site for touring.
The local area has many ancient towns and Navarrenx, just five minutes walk away, offers superb views across the countryside and down the river valley. Guided tours can be found at Orthez where the 13th century bridge withstood the canons of the first world war. The fast flowing river Gave d’Oloron provides opportunities for fishing and canoeing and quiet riverbank walks. The Basque buildings, countryside and people have a charm of their own that is not found elsewhere in France.
Two very clean sanitary blocks with good separate facilities for ladies and men include modern facilities for babies and disabled visitors. Laundry facilities. Locally produced good quality wines available in reception. Homemade pizzas. Small swimming pool (1/5-30/9). Playground for small children. Max. 2 dogs. Chalets for rent. Caravan storage. WiFi throughout (free).
LocationFrom the north take D936 to Navarrenx. Turn left at first roundabout on D115 into Navarrenx. Turn left at T-junction, go over bridge and follow walls of town all the way around. At next island turn right on D947 and site is signed from here. Link to campsite location map on google
