L’Ardechois Reviews

L’Ardechois Holiday Park

North of Aix-en-Provence and Montpellier, in the heart of the Auvergne region sits the L’ Ardechois campsite. This small campsite is very well equipped and sits in pretty surroundings on the banks of the Ardeche River. The area is particularly pretty and this site makes a great base for families wanting to do some exploring of their own.

The site has 244 pitches and is open from 28th April to 29th September. Making your mind up about where to stay at Lardechois won’t take too long as it’s canvass all the way. The tents are all really comfortable with two bedrooms and a generously sized kitchen living area. They also come with barbecues and patio furniture which makes dining al fresco the best way of feeding the family during your stay.

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.

    The sanitary is important when camping and L’ardechois scored full marks on that front. A small village is located near the campsite which is always worth visiting.

    Spending time by the river was my ideal day. While we had more sun than rain, the rainy days were a let down especially when staying in a tent.

    Overall a very pleasant campsite perfectly placed in the French countryside.
