Located within a half hour walk of Bagneres-de-Luchon, this green and pleasant site provides an ideal base for touring. Of the 135 pitches, 117 are for touring with the remainder being occupied by mobile homes for rent. The grassy pitches are level and separated by a mixture of hedges and small trees. Shade is provided by large mature trees. All have electricity (5A–10A) and 18 also have water and waste water drainage. Just inside the gate is a tarmacked area for motorhomes. This very well maintained site, situated in the Luchon valley, is surrounded by the Pyrenean mountains. Two guided walks are organised each week in July and August, and there are opportunities for paragliding, fishing, climbing and rafting nearby.
From the site entrance there are superb views of snow-capped mountains up near the Col du Portillon and the Spanish border. The site is a fantastic base for those seeking a wide range of mountain activities. Luchon is a Roman spa town and mountain resort and is popular with those wishing to try the thermal spa waters. It is possible to take your mountain bike up in a cable car and then cycle down, admiring the views on the way. The town is twinned with Harrogate in England and there are similarities in the building styles and the Roman spa facilities.
