CosyCamp is an environmentally-friendly campsite, located near the village of Chamalières-sur-Loire in Haute-Loire on the banks of the Loire Sauvage. Come and live a glamping experience in a 4.5 hectare botanical garden where cars are not allowed. Large pitches, upscale atypical accommodation, a wellness area, outdoor swimming pools, swimming in the Loire, canoeing, games and bicycles available, and campfires. In short: everything you need for an exquisite holiday.

Forested area on the Loire

CosyCamp is in a stunning forested area, right on the Loire. You'll find one nature reserve after the other in the area. The campsite is in between three French pearls: the regional nature reserve Livradois-Forez, regional nature reserve of Pilat, and the Monts d'Ardèche nature reserve. The campsite grounds are all about nature too. They have been designed with an emphasis on the relationship between people and nature. Totally environmentally-friendly. You'll find botanical gardens here, with the most extensive flora, and all the buildings are made from untreated wood.

Environmentally-friendly glamping

All of the rentals are also designed with conservation in mind. Don't be afraid that you'll have to spend the night in a small wooden hut, though. CosyCamp has the look of a luxury campsite. With very special rentals, including treehouses, lodges and gypsy wagons, you can definitely consider this 'glamping'. The pitches are spacious: the smallest is no less than 100 m².

Fresh, local food

At CosyCamp, simple, local and environmentally-friendly food is served. In the organic kitchen, they make their hamburgers from cows from the Haute-Loire, and every day, there's a special on the menu from the region. You can also have breakfast in the communal dining room, and order picnic baskets with fresh local produce.

Liked - Cosycamp is simply amazing, combining a beautiful river side location, lovely staff & great pitches with all the best bits from every great campsite we have ever visited. The beautifully laid out pitches are dotted with lovely surprises - herb gardens, plenty of campsite games, meadows, a wide variety of flora & fauna, huge picnic tables & barbecues, pond with frogs, a scarecrow, goats & rabbits in a mini ‘farm’, canoes to pop along the Loire, art installations & no cars! Layer on top a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere, great food & a wonderful region and you have camping heaven.
Disliked - No. We’ve been to many, many campsites all over France & Europe. We’ve loved many of them. Cosy Camp is the best one.

Travelling party: Family with children, 4 – 12 years

Liked - first things, it was fun for my children. We loved playing in the river, and swimming; my son loved playing football in the evening in that informal international games that happen; my daughter loved reading in a hammock by the river.
More, though, I think there's a special atmosphere at this campsite. There's a freedom, which people don't exploit, but is there. The whole thing integrates with the landscape so well. When rain was forecast, Richard as owner came down to examine our pitch to see about whether it was likely to get washed away.
We loved the whole thing. Thank you!

Liked -
our stay was very pleasant and I must say, given the pandemic, it has all been very good. of course there are regulations, but these were doable and were enforced. we had a great time because of the beautiful weather and the pleasant surroundings.

Disliked - the bicycles for the children were not allowed to be used. I think that with a little cleaning the bikes could be used just fine.
