What to do in Ardeche?

There is a “pétanque” (French bowls) pitch near the beach.
Our campers can also use our tennis court, so bring your rackets and balls!!!


Discover and enjoy our new heated pool aera. For small children there is a paddling pool and for everyone to enjoy, 2 pools and a jacuzzi. Relax and unwind on our sun loungers by the pool, or enjoy the beautiful nature by diving in the clear waters of the river Chassezac on our beach.

Canoe and kayak rental

A great outing is to go down the river Chassezac in a canoe or kayak. Loisirs Canoe will rent you a canoe or kayak directly at our camp-site.


If you just like to stroll for a day or prefer strenuous hikes you can find whatever you want in the remarkable choice of paths adapted to all athletic levels. Explore the surprisingly rich and diverse fauna and flora. For quiet angling, Casteljau Lake is a 5 minute walk from the camp-site…


In Casteljau, you can explore several climbing spots and particularly the Mazet climbing face just 5 minutes from the camp-site on foot.

With a Mediterranean climate and guaranteed sun, Mazet rocks are a “must” climbing outing. Accessible to all, from beginners to experts, you get panoramic views over this unspoilt natural site and the river.

Mazet cliffs are just 10 minutes on foot from Mazet plage camp-site.  To get there, take the road or cross the river and walk along the bank. You can get climbers’ maps from the tourist office in Les Vans.

Near Mazet Plage camp-site we are lucky enough to have Païolive Wood, a site classified as a “nature reserve of great ecological interest with rare fauna and flora”.

It is a primal, very ancient, forest covering 16sq.km which abounds in natural labyrinths dug by the waters of the Chassezac river gorges. Following sign-posted trails bordered with stones which skirt the cliffs you will look down on the gorges and see natural sculptures such as the Bear and the Lion…

The Pont d’Arc Cave, restitution site of Grotte Chauvet

You can visit its restitution site, the Pont d’Arc Cave, opened in April 2015.
