Alan Rogers Review

La Chamadou is a delightful, well maintained and calm site run by an enthusiastic and friendly family. It is situated in the southern Ardèche, close to the medieval, perched village of Balazuc, not far from the river Ardèche. There are 86 slightly sloping grassy/stony pitches with 69 for touring (electricity 10A). They are separated by hedges and flowering shrubs with a variety of trees giving some shade. A cosy restaurant and terrace have panoramic views. The narrow approach road makes access difficult for large outfits. In April, May and June the campsite offers access to an extensive trial biking area. It is some distance from the campsite and is well managed to minimise disturbance to campers.

On one side of the site are the swimming pool, paddling pool, toboggan and sunbathing terrace overlooking the many vineyards and nearby hills. A few family activities are organised on site but there are many offsite activities in the surrounding area. A night watchman is employed to ensure peace and quiet at night. The site is ideal for families seeking a smaller, quality site with a very friendly ambience. The ancient on-site house contains two superb gîtes.


Several small, well appointed and very clean toilet blocks have all the necessary facilities including those for campers with disabilities. Bar/TV. Very small shop with necessities, restaurant and takeaway (all July/Aug and some special occasions). Swimming pool, paddling pool, toboggan. Good play area. Games room. Minigolf. Basketball. Canoe trips and bike hire organised. Electric and gas barbecues only. Winery. Free WiFi.
