Alan Rogers Review
This campsite is now permanently closed.
Small, but perfectly formed, Les Matherons is attractively laid out amongst a variety of trees and wild flower meadows. Surrounded by olive trees and herb gardens it is secluded, but not remote, and offers a calming experience of gentle living. It is owned and run by a Dutch couple and offers just 27 large, terraced, grassy and well separated pitches, within a natural setting of 54 hectares. Many pitches have good views and all have 3A electricity (rock pegs advised). Campers with caravans and tents are asked to keep their vehicles in a car park. Tractor assistance is available. The terrain is rugged, so this site is unsuitable for campers with mobility issues.
Peace and tranquillity represent the ethos of this site; families of all ages are welcome, but teenagers are asked to let off steam some way from the site which operates a silence rule from 22.00 to 07.00. Torches essential as the site is not lit at night.
From A51 exit 19 take road through Oraison past square and church and then take second left, D12 signed Castellet, towards Puimichel. Site is well signed 2 km. before Puimichel.
