I have reviewed this site already as my wife and Ioved it. Fabulous views from every pitch with very friendly owners who I suggest should have warned us that they do not accept payment by card. In my previous review I neglected to warn those with large caravans (usually that means the English!) that the access to the site is one of the most difficult we have experienced in France. You have to drive through a village with very narrow streets. We managed it with our small car and caravan but would not like to do it with a larger outfit. Once on site we found the pitches were mostly small. Ideal for the Dutch who generally avoid large caravans.

This must be one of the best sites we have ever been to in France. We were given a warm welcome by the Dutch owners. We did find it odd to be the only English couple staying here, all the other campers were from Holland. We had a lovely pitch with a fabulous view. Every pitch has a lovely view as the site is terraced. One minor negative to mention is that, when I went to pay, I was told that they do not accept payment by card of any description. Why not tell us this when we arrived? There was no mention of that simple fact on the piece of paper we were given explaining about the site.

Alle beoordelingen gelezen en ik moet bekennen er is niets gelogen.
Wat een heerlijke camping, Hans en Annette ( en Mika de vrolijk kwispelende labrador ).geven je een warm welkom en staan voor je klaar gedurende je verblijf.
De omgeving is prachtig en je panorama view vanaf de camping maakt het co pleet. We hebben een heerlijke tijd gehad en komen er zeker nog een keer terug.

Bij toeval al fietsend deze camping ontdekt.
Vriendelijke ontvangst. Een rustige camping met een magnifiek uitzicht.

Mooie camping met geweldige mooie plekken, veelal met een schitterend uitzicht over de vallei van de Tarn. \'s Avonds de zon zien ondergaan vanaf je kampeerplek. Gastvrije eigenaren, vol met tips en weetjes over de omgeving.

1 nacht op deze camping overnacht, en wat een fijn verblijf. Heel vriendelijk ontvangst, uitzicht vanaf iedere plek op de camping is fantastisch. Sanitair schoon, kampeerplekken goed onderhouden. Veel campings gezien op onze doorreis door Frankrijk, en dit was de eerste camping waarbij we beiden de behoefte voelen in toekomst terug te komen.

You couldn\'t wish for better hosts than Hans & Annette. Very friendly and helpful. Peaceful site with lovely views. Also lovely walk down to river with beach. Excellent bread and croissants delivered to site. We decided to visit during May, at the beginning of the season, as it would be quiet. Some lovely drives up the Tarn and near to Millau. A plus is that campsite is not surrounded by lots of other sites which makes it unique.

Wir wollten eigentlich diesen Platz nur eine Nacht für die Durchreise nutzen. Aber die Eigentümer waren so herzlich, das haben wir so noch nie erlebt. Die Aussicht war phänomenal und die Sanitäranlagen immer sauber. Zum Baden konnte man nach einen kurzen Fußweg an den Fluss Tarn gehen.
Schlussendlich sind wir dann doch 4 Tage geblieben, da es in der Umgebung so viel zum anschauen und erwandern gibt. Auch die Pizza beim Pizzaabend gemeinsam mit anderen Camper können wir nur weiterempfehlen.

Mooie camping met een GEWELDIG uitzicht, met schoon en mooi sanitair. Prachtige omgeving bij de Tarn. De kampeerplaats had wat groter mogen zijn. Bij het heggetje en beneden bij het terras had je gratis WIFI.
Een aanrader.
