Alan Rogers Review

Châteauneuf de Galaure is tucked away at the heart of the Drôme department, between Lyon and Valence. This is a spacious site, extending over 13 hectares, with 157 large, grassy touring pitches (mostly with 10A electricity connections). The River Galaure runs close by and there are three swimming pools on site, including one for children, plus a large water slide. Châteauneuf is a typically sleepy village with a couple of good restaurants and surrounded by some very fine countryside. This is excellent walking and cycling country. Most of the visitors (and staff) at this site are Dutch and little French is spoken.

Châteauneuf has a fine Franciscan abbey which is currently being restored. A little further afield, Hauterives, is home to the Palais Idéal du Facteur Cheval. This is surely one of Europe’s most unexpected tourist sights, an amazing palace built by a postman over a period of 33 years.


Three sanitary blocks have been enlarged and renovated. Washing machines. Motorcaravan services. Shop. Bar/snack bar. Restaurant and takeaway. Two swimming pools with water slides and children’s pool. Massage room and sauna. Lagoon with sandy beach. Play areas. Trampoline. Bicycle hire. WiFi (charged 27/6-29/8).
