Alan Rogers Review
Nestling in a wooded hill in the Cathar lands of Ariège in south-western France, La Pibola is a small, family run campsite between Mirepoix and Lac Montbel. There are 58 grassy, shaded pitches on level ground, with electricity connections (16A). A range of chalets and mobile homes can be rented all year. It is quiet in low season, but becomes more lively in July and August with organised activities for the whole family. A heated swimming pool, a play area and various sporting facilities are available, whilst there is a restaurant just outside the site and a small shop in Camon.
The quaint historic village of Mirepoix has a supermarket and a number of shops and is well worth a visit, especially on Monday mornings when there is a market under the cloisters. The countryside has some spectacular scenery, with impressive waterfalls at Roquefort and caves with prehistoric wall paintings at Niaux. Ariège and neighbouring Aude are rich in historic sites such as the Cathar castles at Puivert and Montségur, and the ancient city of Carcassonne.
The sanitary block has hot showers, washbasins in cubicles and facilities for disabled visitors. Washing machine and dryer. Shops for essentials. Fresh bread (July/Aug). Restaurant. Swimming pool (15/6-15/9). Play area. TV/games room. Boules. Snooker. Electronic shuffle board. Table football. Activities for children and families in high season. Volleyball. Badminton.
