Alan Rogers Review
Camping le Clos Lalande is a basic but pretty site near the Aveyron gorges, and close to the pleasant village of Montricoux. There are 49 touring pitches arranged over two hectares. All have electricity (6A) and water. The pitches are mainly on flat ground, shaded by maple trees in the lower area and exposed to sunlight in the upper part of the site. The site also has a number of mobile homes and chalets available for hire, many with a south facing terrace and garden furniture. On-site facilities include a fenced swimming pool with jacuzzi section and a paddling pool. There is direct access to the river for fishing and picnics.
This is, of course, superb walking country and there are more than 400 km. of marked walking and cycle routes through the surrounding hills, taking in caves, castles and small villages. There are routes for every level of ability and the site owners will be pleased to recommend the best routes, with the assurance that every one has been tried and tested by the site-owning family. At the foot of the site there is a small path along the river, leading directly to the medieval village of Montricoux with its Friday market and small museum of painters. The old town has some interesting wooden-framed buildings.
Two traditional sanitary blocks, one partially heated, have some washbasins in cabins, a baby bath and changing table, and basic facilities for disabled visitors. Launderette.
