Alan Rogers Review
As its name suggests, Camping de la Forêt can be found in a peaceful wooded valley just 1 km. from Lourdes. This 4.5-hectare site has a relaxed atmosphere and a popular restaurant serving traditional specialities. The 130 grass pitches are level and shaded; 74 are for touring and have 3-10A electricity (French plugs) and easy access. The remainder are occupied by tastefully arranged chalets and mobile homes for rent. The new attractive heated swimming pool with jacuzzi and paddling pool area has splendid views of ‘The Grande Convent’ at the Sanctuary of Lourdes.
This campsite is perfect for visiting Lourdes (a bus runs from the site every day). The 7.5 km. petite train ride will take you via the old quarter, the upper town and the major monuments. Or you may just wish to take the waters at the Sanctuary and visit the Grotto. The Funiculaire du Pic du Jer offers panoramic views, and there are several interesting museums. Within easy reach are the Cirque de Gavarnie and the Spa town of Bagneres-de-Bigorre.
