Saint Pons-de-Thomières lies in a valley in the Parc Régional du Haut Languedoc, just east of the village. It was purchased six years ago by Domian and Virginie, who have worked hard to develop it, adding an attractive pool area and extra pitches. The original part of the site has pitches in the shade of old cherry trees, while the newer section is more open, but with new planting. Eighty-eight of the 98 touring pitches have water, 10-16A electricity and drainage. A simple bar area is being created above the pool complex, which is very attractive. The Jaur river running alongside the campsite has a number of little cascades, is a great fishing spot and a new sandy beach has been made.
Between the river and the campsite, a recreation area is being developed with volleyball pitch, table tennis and pétanque. Just across the road is a former railway line, which used to run for 75 km. from Bédarieux to Mazamet. La Voie Verte, as it is now known, provides a level green track ideal for cycling or horse riding, or just for a stroll into the village where you will find two small supermarkets, several bars and restaurants.
