Alan Rogers Review

This small, quiet family site is set on the banks of the Lèze river in the foothills of the Pyrénées. It is run by a very friendly couple, Frantz and Claudine, who immediately make you feel welcome. They took over this municipal site four years ago and have steadily improved the facilities. There are 39 open pitches with some shade. Grassy and level, with 10A electricity (Europlug), water and drainage, there are 31 for touring units. Les Eychecadous is a very clean, traditional site offering basic facilities at very reasonable rates. Children can fish for trout or paddle in the shallow river, (fishing tackle loaned free of charge) with parents supervising from the small sandy beach.

There is a bar and snack bar on site where food can be pre-ordered and Frantz and Claudine also serve a weekly communal meal in high season. This is Catalan country, rich in historical sites and fortified villages. Not to be missed are the hilltop village of Carla-Bayle with its panoramic views over the Pyrénées and home to many artists, and the prehistoric cave at Mas d’Azil. The surrounding rolling hills and quiet roads make this site a good base for cycling and walking.
