If you have teenage British boys you may want to avoid this site. I know our European neighbours have many things sorted but the wearing of tight swimming pants is an anathema to my teen boys. It is enforced at this site and as a result they refuse to entertain going in the pool.
Now I admit this isn't the sites fault. It advertises it on its website. But they don't want to show their junk. So as a result our holiday is a little bit crappy.
On the plus site the river is nice. The food great and not too pricey. The caravans whilst not plush are clean and the air con works. So if your male travel companions don't mind wearing speedos- knock yourself out :)
We stayed at the campsite for a few days for a family holiday. As far as I’m concerned the campsite provided everything necessary. The site is relatively small so easy to get around with two different pool complexes including inside, outside, slides and a splash park which catered for our two children. It also has direct access to the river although on a rocky / pebbly part rather than sand as some other parts of the river. The campsite pursues a cashless approach which is fine once you’ve loaded cash on to a wristband or if you’re happy using your credit card for everything. The shop catered for all the basics that you need at a reasonable price and supermarkets (open on Sunday mornings) are a short drive away. Having said that you are a bit in the middle of nowhere so it is very quiet and relaxing. The three things we did as excursions were the Grotte de la Cocaliere (which were very impressive) which were about 20 minutes drive away, the Vallon-Pont-d’Arc which was about half an hour drive and the Pont du Gard which was more like 90 minutes but both worth doing. The only minor niggle I would have is that the bins and recycling are right on the edge of the campsite so it’s recommended you only do this when you’re leaving to go out for a day.
We visited this Eurocamp site in the Ardeche a couple of weeks ago. There are so many reviews on here about the necessity for all males to wear speedos - we didn't read this until we were 30 mins from arriving. Son was in tears, as he wears swim shorts. However - 85% of all swimmers in the pool were wearing swim shorts. The campsite shop was selling swim shorts ... so - in our experience - this really wasn't 'a thing'. We used the pool every day and were never challenged by staff. Great pool, great campsite. Try to avoid going when there's a bank holiday in France as gets filled to capacity!
We chose here as we were visiting off season and it had indoor swimming pools.
The pools are not heated, so a bit chilly but to die the nature of the construction, the pool rooms are super warm, so worked us.
The amineties are good, but off season as expected limited hours and offerings.
The restaurant is we priced and good portion size/quality for the value.
We stayed end of July into mid-August 2018 with Eurocamp. Family of 5 with dog.
Reps were efficient and helpful.
The accommodation was average, a little tired maybe, however we were in a dog friendly caravan so accept this is part of the experience if taking the mutt. I'm thinking the non-doggy ones are probably the newer better specified models.
The site itself is good. Large pool area (watch for extremely sharp rock steps, that cut children's feet) and decent space for lots of sunbeds. Don't forget, in true French fashion, the wearing of speedos is mandatory for chaps - hygiene or some weird Descartes philosophical thing of having your meat and veg on show....
Evening entertainment is limited, but there was an excellent foam party for the children and short disco one night.
The restaurant is nothing short of SHOCKING. Just to explain, the mix of nationalities is mainly Dutch, then French and a minority of Belgians/Brits. So a regular mixture of nationalities as you'd expect. However it was VERY apparent that the French were receiving preferential treatment from the staff with seating, bookings, speed of food etc. e.g. you wait 50 minutes for a pizza (pizza or salad on menu), along with the Dutch family next to you, and the French have theirs in under 10 minutes. We saw this on every occassion we used it. It somewhat wrankled to be honest, especially as we speak fluent French when ordering. There are several decent restaurants within a 15 minute drive, so I urge you to go to these instead, especially as there is little difference in price.
Small shop on site, only takes cards for over 10 euros.
Bins are about 400m from the site entrance, so be prepared to tie your black bag to your rear car wiper.
All in all, it was okay. We've stayed at better Eurocamp in St Tropez and Dordogne, but wouldn't discount the Ardeche in future, as the region is very nice, but would probably look elsewhere to stay - especially bearing in mind the apparent prejudice when dining.
