Alan Rogers Review

L’Epi Bleu is a small and friendly family run site, set in the heart of Haute-Provence, close to the unspoilt hilltop village of Banon which gave its name to a renowned goat’s cheese. Of the 90 level pitches, 40 are for touring (rock pegs advised), the remainder for mobile homes, chalets and lodges. Most pitches are shaded by trees and all have 10A electricity. Since joining the Flower Group in 2014, the site has undergone extensive refurbishment including new sanitary blocks. The convivial bar terrace overlooks the children’s playground and the restaurant serves simple meals at lunchtime and in the evenings in the high season, when there is plenty of activity for all the family.

People travel far and wide to visit the famous ‘Le Bluet’ bookstore in Banon, one of the largest in France. Banon is also well placed to explore Forcalquier, famous for its distilleries (Pastis and liqueurs) and its impressive Monday market with 400 stalls. Visit Sault for its lavender fields and spectacular view over Provence from the summit of Mont Ventoux, a favoured stage finish for the Tour de France and Apt, capital of the Lubéron which specialises in the production of fruit jellies, jams and crystallised fruit.
