This attractive, terraced site, set on a hillside above the village has been thoughtfully developed. The owner, speaks excellent English and the genuine, friendly welcome means many families return year upon year, bringing, in turn, new generations. Divided into five terraces, each with a dedicated toilet block, some of its 100 generously sized pitches (68 for touring) enjoy the pleasant shade from trees and have electricity connections (10A). In high season, one terrace is reserved as a one-star camping area for young people. Orpierre has an enchanting maze of medieval streets and houses, almost like a trip back through the centuries.
Whether you choose to drive, climb, walk or cycle, there is plenty of wonderful scenery to discover in the immediate vicinity, whilst not far away, some exhilarating hang-gliding and parascending can be enjoyed. It is renowned as a world-class rock climbing venue, with over 600 climbing routes in the surrounding mountains.
For those seeking to ‘get away from it all’ in an area of outstanding natural beauty, there can be few more tranquil sites. There can be no doubt that you will be made most welcome and will enjoy the quiet splendours the region has to offer.
