Alan Rogers Review

CosyCamp is a superbly designed and equipped, car-free site in a tranquil, four-acre wild park close to Le Puy en Velay. It enjoys views towards the high hills and ruins of the Château d’Artias. The 86 pitches (65 for touring) are very large (100-300 sq.m) and have 16A electricity connections. There are nine motorhome pitches (100 sq.m) in a special meadow. The whole family will enjoy the heated outdoor pool and the indoor pool with water jets and counter-current feature. The site also offers an impressive range of rental accommodation: beautifully decorated Safari lodges, tree houses, authentic wood and canvas tents, a Romany-style caravan and a luxury cottage.

CosyCamp looks lovely with a fusion of traditional buildings with the most modern amenities. There is a shop and snack bar on site, with a restaurant serving full evening meals. The picturesque village of Chamalières-sur-Loire has further shops and restaurants. This sunny area of the Haute-Loire is just over one hour from Lyon, but there is plenty to discover locally - Le Puy en Velay (with its UNESCO World Heritage cathedral), châteaux of the Loire, the gorges of the Loire by canoe, and the verdant cycle routes.
