This site (and the one next to it) are ideally located for visiting Avignon either by the free ferry (be aware it stops for lunch and early evenings) or walking back via the bridge. However, the site had several toilet blocks closed and we were allocated a pitch quite a distance from the entrance at the front (there is no back gate) even though there were lots of empty pitches. There are also too many trees so too much shade, creating a dark and gloomy feeling inside. Needed strong mozzie repellent here. It does have a nice pool (which I did not use). After checking out the following morning, we parking our camper in the car park (outside a coded barrier) as we wanted to visit Avignon again. While away, someone attempted to break in by drilling out the habitation door lock. Fortunately, they did not succeed, probably disturbed. It may or may not be co-incidence that there were 2 tatty campers which did not enter the campsite but parked all night in the car park and were still there the next morning. I feel security should monitor the car park more carefully.
As others have said, this site has an unloved appearance. Little has been done to clear up the mud / dust / leaves on roads, also pruning of dead branches. Shrub beds outside toilets unsightly. Most water points on the site in our area were switched off in May, some toilet blocks closed, the toilets look as tho’ they are not cleaned, serviced. Certainly the tick sheet was last filled in Oct last year!
Stopped here for 3 nights to visit Avignon, campsite right opposite “Le Pont D’Avignon” and a nice 20min walk in over the bridge, also there is a free navette shuttle across the river a 5 min walk from the site.
Pitches are fine, showers a tad cool but possibly because of the gap at the bottom allowing the wind to blow under, not a problem as used our own shower.
Only downside was a little noisy from traffic across the river which seemed to go on all night - and I’m hard of hearing!
But all in all a great site for visiting Avignon, would recommend and return, maybe choose a pitch further back from river.
The ups; very close to the city, great view of the Popes Palace, goon facilities and a nice pool.
The downs; no access to the riverside, view spoils by fencing, very small uneven pitches.
Stayed on this site for a couple of nights whilst visiting Avignon. Good sized pitches with hedges. WiFi thankfully useless but dogs not under control. i.e. a dog friendly site.
Staff friendly and facilities up to the usual French standard.
Some stuff was stolen that we left in front of our van, that never happened before on any campsite (roughly 60) in France. "Guardian" personnel not helpful after we told the theft.
Although it had quite a nice kids club, with caring staff , the pool was good and the showers were very clean. I found the campsite very impersonal , dark and unattractive. There were quite a few non car campers but we were all given very muddy, no grass pitches. Which were dusty when sunny and flooded when raining. Although the campsite is on a island looking over beautiful Avignon centre. You can not see Avignon as there is a very ugly and tall fence all the way around the campsite. The campsite is dark with ugly roads crisis crossing the campsite. No signs to drive slowly or children playing. So cars drive fast not giving pedestrians right of way. The entrance is on the other side of the river facing away from the river bank towards Avignon. You have to walk along a road for 15 minutes just to access the river bank which takes you to the shuttle boat. Very frustrating when your tent is literally 50m from an unopened exitgate that would takes you direct onto the riverbank. I understand securit is an issue but surely you can man one other entrance between a certain time. If you miss the riverbank shuttle bus which runs from 11-8.45pm (couldn't this be earlier and later) you have a very boring walk along a busy road and a motorway bridge into town that takes at least a 25 minutes. Also the campsite is a long walk 35/ 40 walk to the main bus and train station so not a very good base if you do not want to drive for day trips around the region etc. The shop is badly stocked not enough camping gear gas cylinders etc. toilet roll, shaving etc. the playground needed updating mended. The entertainment is terrible and very very loud and goes on until midnight. Could it be quieter. Also. No toilet roll or hand soap in the toilets, and the toilet in the bar is revolting.
Campsite was very frustrating as could be excellent with more investment, and more thought had gone into the user experience of the camper, especially campers that don't want to drive on their holidays.
Wonderfully placed for Avignon; 10 min cycle to free river taxi. pitches good and nice size. not much of view but quiet at night and very secure. pool fantastic and restaurant great food. wash areas ok.
Well placed for walking or cycling into town.large flat pitches with good tall tree cover.also a cheaper area for motorhomes that don't want electric that's simply on large car park in the site. toilet blocks are clean , and have actual toilet s not just hole in the ground, but like rest of the site could do with a repaint and freshen up. Pool looks v,clean and large with small kids pool beside it. Bar and restaurant beside pool and a bit loud but all quiet by 11 pm.Can imagine in August it could be a bit hectic.The design of bar etc is dated and being in an alcove tends to enhance the noise level. We were camped all way over to the veiw of the river so no bother to us. 2 full size tennis an volleyball on-site.We like it and can reccomend.
Spent 3 nights here in the middle of May. Very high winds when we were there and with the amount of large trees there was a lot of branches and debris flying around,cluck illy no damage was done to our van, pitches are gravel and reasonably level, well laid out and a fair size. Half the site was shut off due to it being early in the season but by the size of the place it could be very busy in the middle of summer. Toilets left a lot to be desired and resembled a 1970's council car park toilet block and not nearly big enough for the potential number of people that could be here if full. Queues in the morning as it was to empty chemical toilet and use the washing up facilities, investment needed in a larger more modern type toilet area. Very handy for the town with the free ferry being a 10 minute walk or over the bridge to town a 20 minute walk
