A lovely, small and friendly campsite that offers an excellent alternative to the larger sites in this area. The owners are aiming for a quiet, relaxing site, attracting nature lovers who want to spend time walking, cycling or touring in this beautiful region. Attractively and well laid out, there are 91 good sized pitches, some with superb views of the château, 67 for touring (all with 5/10A electricity, 19 also with water and drainage), and many with good privacy. They are separated by neat conifer hedges with mature trees offering varying amounts of shade. Murol and its ancient 12th-century château are half an hour’s walk away.
Attractive Lac Chambon with three small supermarkets, fishing, bathing in the lake, bicycle and boat hire is 2 km. Super Besse (a winter ski resort), and bustling Le Mont Dore with a cable car to Puy de Sancy, the highest mountain in the region are 20 km. away. The area is rich in wild flowers and has many interesting villages to explore. Saint Nectaire with its caves, casino and famous cheese is 6 km. Try the local produce: wines, honey, etc. The site makes an ideal stopover and a good base for local exploration of the Parc des Volcans.
