Facilities & Activities at L’Ardechois
There is an on-site animation team that organise sports and entertainment such as Ghost hunts and magic shows from mid-June onwards and there is lively bar with lots of space and this is where discos are held during high season.
Should you want a night off, dinner is served in the traditional family restaurant where they also serve continental breakfast every morning from 0800. Fresh coffee and croissant – how French is that. You can also have anything from the menu as a takeaway so that’s another night off kitchen duties.
There’s a fantastic pool complex at Lardechois with four outdoor pools including river stream, whirlpool and cascade. There’s also a spa with a lovely Jacuzzi for bubbling away your stresses. With the river so close, swimming and canoeing will always be on the agenda. There are tons of other sports facilities on site including tennis, basketball and volleyball and not to forget boules.
Outside of the camp, just a short stroll away there is Vallon Pont d’Arc which is a typical French country town with market, shops and of course street cafes. There are also some fantastic trips walking through the river gorge, a site you don’t get to see that often in Blighty. You can also hire bikes on-site which are great for getting around the local countryside. If you’re looking for ‘different’ then you should check out La Ferme aux Crocodiles, a crocodile farm with over 500 crocodiles – just watch out for your fingers though? No trip to France would be complete without a chateau and Chateau des Adhemar and Chateau de Suz-la-Rousse are both worth visiting.
