Alan Rogers Review

Beside a fine fly fishing river and not far from the spa town of Vichy, this spacious family campsite makes a good base for exploring the Auvergne, the nearby river gorges, châteaux, mountains and lakes. There are 80 spacious, grassy pitches, 74 for touring, in a parkland setting. Most have 6A electricity and some shade from mature trees. Many are directly by the river, which is clean, shallow and pleasant to play in. There is a deeper area for swimming 500 m. away. You will receive a warm welcome from the English owners, who also provide good value and very popular takeaway food.

In May and June, the fields abound with wild flowers, some quite rare. Bird songs are many and varied. Listen for the songs of the nightingale and golden oriole, often heard but seldom seen. The quiet country roads are ideal for walking and cycling, especially mountain biking and for touring by car. The interesting village of Ebreuil with its Thursday market, is just a 15 minute level stroll. Just west of the site are the gorges of the River Sioule, and the extinct volcanoes of the Puy-de-Dôme with the Vulcania Exhibition are well worth a visit.
