Camping elegido para pasar 2 noches de ruta a España. Recomendado para niños, pero ojo en la piscina que, será por normativa francesa, no hay vigilancia en piscina ni toboganes! Parcelas amplias, con sombra y el estado de la nuestra, sin mantener, con mucha hoja suelta. Lavabos compartidos unisex, pocos para la amplitud del camping lleno en agosto. Entorno muy bonito con río y estanque en el mismo camping y varias grutas para visitar. Acogen ACSI, con lo que calidad-precio, muy buena.

Camping choisi pour sa prestation mini club. surprise a l\'arrivee accueil uniquement de 10h a 11h30 avec animatrice inapte, désagreable et surtout complétement inconsciente. en effet nous avons deposé notre enfant de 2ans et demi à 10 h pour le retrouver 1h plus tard à notre retour de promenade seul et abandonné a l\'autre bout du camping juste a coté de la riviere!! elle ne s\'était meme pas rendu compte de son absence!! et ne s\'est meme pas fendue d\'une seule excuse! nous avons eu la peur de notre vie, autant dire que nous sommes partis le jour meme, vacances complétement gachées.

Camping gebruikt voor 4 nachten ivm de Tour du France.
Een nette goed verzorgde camping tussen de bergen voorzien van grote plaatsen, een zwembad met glijbanen en veel schaduwrijke plekken dmv bomen.
Sanitair gebouwen niet groot voor het aantal aanwezige plekken maar nog niet in de rij gestaan.
Een aanrader!

Accueil chaleureux, emplacement spacieux, belle piscine, spa et sauna, wifi sans aucun supplément. Le rêve! Des propriétaires aux petits soins, une bonne restauration dans une région à connaître.

Très beau camping dans une belle vallée. Bon acueil - propriétaires très sympas qui ont fait beaucoup de travaux de rénovation: sanitaires refait a neuf et très bien entretenu et agrémenté de fleurs et d'arbustes.

Can't comment on facilities, pool etc as all shut. Pitches way too tight for longer caravans, scraped ours trying to get in, it does need the suitable for longer vans symbol off as it is NOT. Wash/ toilet facilities a bit desperate except for the disabled which were good - used them. Pitches got flooded in the rain - weather not their fault I know. Nice & quiet, but for us - one to miss in future.

We kwamen ongelegen in de middagpauze die nog 2 uur zou duren, maar werden toch heel vriendelijk geholpen. Grote plaatsen langs een snelstromend beekje. Nog maar weinig campinggasten. Op 2 plekken mooi nieuw sanitair; het hoofdgebouw is een ratjetoe, dat na dit seizoen onder handen wordt genomen. Prachtig zwembad met fijne ligstoelen en parasols. Internet gratis en als je dicht genoeg bij het zwembad zit ook vanaf je kampeerplek. Aanrader voor bezoek aan Pyreneeën, Andorra, Foix, Mirepoix en Montségur. Ik zou er alleen niet naartoe gaan in het hoogseizoen als het vol is.
