Val De Cantobre Holiday Park

In the heart of the Auvergne courtside, with spectacular views all around is the Val de Cantobre campsite. This small site is perfect if you want a base for exploring the local countryside and there are guided walks in high season just for that purpose. The park is built in and around pretty rustic farm buildings which house the many amenities such as the reception, laundry and bar and restaurant. For a small park they really do pack a punch as far as activities are concerned and all that without losing their friendly atmosphere.

The pretty park is built on the valley side and this means that there is some terracing but it’s not too steep. There are just 215 pitches here and you have a great choice between tents and chalets.

Your chalets have great facilities and start with a modern kitchen that has everything you’ll need and along with the outside patio furniture and barbecue you’ll have great family meals. Each chalet has either two or three bedrooms, one double plus an extra two sofa beds in the comfortable living room. Each chalet also has its own shower and loo.

For a budget holiday the tent accommodation is really great. Each tent has two bedrooms with plenty of living space including a small kitchen and with patio furniture. They also have new internal and external canvasses for 2012 which means that external walls can be completely let down during the day for a real outdoor in feeling.

Facilities & Activities at Val De Cantobre

The best thing about staying at Val De Cantobre is the amazing countryside. With river valleys, cliffs and gorges the local walks become a great part of a holiday here and there are guided walks available during high season. You can also take part in a good range of sports here including tennis, table tennis and boules. Cycles are also available for hire – a real blessing for exploring the local countryside.

Outside of the park you should head for local town such as Nant, try to catch a local market but remember to get there early and then you can reward yourself with a fresh croissant and coffee from a local cafe. Head out further and discover places such as La Bambouseraie, a really exotic location that is all about plants and their mystical quality. Go on, trust me just go!

When you get back to camp – food! There’s a lovely restaurant housed in the original farm buildings with a terrace on the courtyard. The food is surprisingly Dutch and very enjoyable and the kids will particularly enjoy the children’s menu. There’s also a takeaway with its own menu of the day.

    We stayed in a Eurocamp mobile home for 10 nights in August, the mobilehome was very clean, well equipped and more spacious that I imagined set beneath a leafy shaded area.

    The site can be both relaxing and active depending on your mood. Most days we relaxed by the pool but we also went canoeing, biking, hiking and of course drank lots of wine. Like most campsites in Southern France the site is mostly made up of Dutch tourists, but we found them to be very nice and our kids made plenty of new friends.

    A lovely relaxing and fun family holiday.
