Camping du Vieux Château is situated in the famous Saint-Emilion wine region, located at the foot of the medieval castle of Rauzan. You will find centuries-old trees on the camping grounds. It is very green and tranquil. Rauzan is within walking distance and the cities of Libourne and Bordeaux are not far away.
Camping site with a rich history
Nature on the camping site is rich in history with some trees being older than 100 years. The camping site looks like a park and offers ample shade. You can opt for a sunny pitch or one completely in the shade. The pitches are all spacious (at least 120 m2) and demarcated with shrubs. They have a grass surface. Want to rent something? There are rental mobile homes and bungalows, as well as a converted, old Swiss army truck. Unique!
Elegant swimming pool
The heated swimming pool has an attractive design and ample space and greenery around it. Pot plants, loungers and sun umbrellas create a nice atmosphere. The lovely, circular toddler pool has a water slide. From here you also have a splendid view of the nearby castle.
There is also a playground with a bouncing castle, a spring rider and a double swing. You can also have fun on the multi-sports field. In peak season, owner Tom offers archery lessons and geocaching. Also during peak season, social evenings are held in and around the restaurant on Thursdays.
Restaurant with nice terrace
There is a restaurant with a limited menu and a cosy terrace. The tent cloth covering makes this a nice and shady spot. In the camping shop you can buy some basic foodstuffs and regional products.

Really peaceful, nice pool, 5 minute walk to a nice village/town. Really helpful staff, good sized pitches. Charming site!
I fully endorse the comments made in 2018 that this is a very well appointed and clean site. The owners are very freindly and helpful. We stayed 3 nights but decided to avoid visiting nearby St Emillion which is swamped by tourists. The little village at the top of the hiill is like so many little villages in France, a little dead but there is a handy small supermarket. One thought though, keep away from the play area at weekends and school holidays, boys and their footballs don’t mix!
Had three nights here on our way down to Spain couldn’t get a better stopover good size pitch great views a really nice site . Jim and Ann
Lovely French owned site on the outskirts of Rauzan. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Decent sized pitches, most with some shade. Nice little bar area. Rauzan has good services, including a lovely Pizza place, and a superb butcher. Just one thing to be aware of - don\'t be put off when on your first night you hear noises like sonar - we thought the electricity was problematic - until the owner explained they were the call of the local toads. once we knew that we were able to sleep peacefully. The first night we were there there was a threesome who were very noisy, and who kept turning their music up until late in the evening. They were asked to leave the next day - so well done to the site owner, Great area for cycling amongst the vineyards.
An absolutely beautiful campsite in a lovely area. The staff were very friendly and helpful and were keen to further improve the site. Our pitch was close to the little stream at the edge which allowed us to watch the wildlife. Numerous birds, butterflies, damsel and dragonflies and even a red squirrel came to visit us. We stayed for 10 nights, I could have stayed for much longer. An easy walk up to the village even for me with a walking stick and ms! I can\'t speak highly enough of this site, a real gem!
For us this could be one of the best campsites we've stayed on in France. The owners are super friendly and obviously take great pride in their site. The location is super peaceful and just a 5 minute walk to the nearest village. We would definitely recommend this site and stay again.
Lovely site and friendly welcome. Bar and restaurant about to close and therefore what seems a very pleasant terrace area and focus for the site was closing down . We enjoyed a round of drinks on the last night at the bar and prices reasonable. . Pretty site complex and enjoyed our short stay, lovely grounds and pool and walking opportunities ample ( we have a dog). Toilets and showers good quality. As Grandparents with 2 year old , we appreciated large play area opposite our pitch and will happily return, earlier in season as clearly a site with a nice ambience.
Friendly owners of a well run campsite.
Nice adjacent village within short walk. Pleasant areas around to visit like Casteon la bataille. Would certainly stay again.
