Travelling party: Couple

a warm welcome from the owners who were very friendly and helpful
mainly Netherlands people on site who were very friendly and approachable
the views from this site are incredible and they serve meals on the terrace with a pizza night on Sunday
roomy pitches and well kept although the showers could be a bit hotter
the vultures are easily seen and the house of vultures is close by,well worth the effort
plenty else there,we hope to be back s9n

Whilst not on the river like most sites in this area the site is set high with terraces that allow great views from all pitches. The pitches are all level and well maintained although some are not over large. Access is good but quite steep with a sharp bend part way up, it would be a challenge getting a big outfit into position. The owners who are 100% hands-on really make your stay special - one of the very few sites that we would seek out again in the future. Being able to watch soaring Vultures (from the adjoining Jonte Gorge) was especially exciting

Travelling party: Couple

Excellent campsite with spectacular views. As it is run by a Dutch couple, you do at times feel you are camping in Holland and not France. In reality Holland does not have the weather or the views we are experiencing at Camping Papillon. Excellent facilities and extremely easy to get to, despite comments to the contrary. Slight downside is at times it is difficult to escape the direct sun. A high class problem, solved by a large gin & tonic with plenty of ice!!
