Camping CosyCamp ****

General information

CosyCamp is a cosy, environmentally-friendly campsite close to the village of Chamalières-sur Loire in the department of Haute-Loire in France. Everything at the campsite is designed with nature in mind: from the environmentally-friendly buildings, the various gardens, and the activities. CosyCamp campsite is very friendly, with a glamping atmosphere.

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.

Von einem motivierten, freundlichen Team sehr gut geführter Campingplatz mitten in der Natur. Kräutergarten, schöne Wohnzelte und Hütten, saubere, gepflegte Sanitäranlagen. Die Stellplätze für Wohnmobile befinden sich am Rand der Anlage und haben einen separaten Eingang. Gute, einfache Küche mit regionalen Produkten; Geheimtipp: Die Pommes sind einsame Spitze. Der Platz ist uneingeschränkt zu empfehlen. Wir werden sicher wieder hinfahren.

This is a small and very well laid out campsite on the banks of the River Loire which our dog could swim in. There is an emphasis on ecological and green values and no cars are allowed on the site which makes it very safe for children. So there is a special area for up to 9 camping cars which have well spaced and marked out pitches. The campsite itself is not large, but the pitches for tents and caravans are very spacious indeed. Internet is free on the main part of the site. Lovely walks along the river and up into the nearby village. The bar/restaurant was only open in the evenings when we were there but there is a good and varied menu including organic produce grown on the campsite. A good family and relaxing campsite. Highly recommended. The scenery around the campsite is spectacular. The staff were very helpful and spoke English.

Ich werde auf deutsch schreiben um auch deutsche Reisende für diesen absolut fantastischen Campingplatz zu begeistern :).

Wir hatten dort 10 Tage in Juli 2014 verbracht. Wir fanden es wunderbar. Trotz dem schlechten Wetter hatten wir unseren Aufenthalt genossen. Es ist alles so liebevoll dort.

Die Plätze großzügig, das Restaurant gemütlich, die Gärten(!) und der Pool sehr gepflegt. Die Sanitäranlagen sind sauber und geräumig. Was aber die größte Rolle spielte: das Team. Man merkt, dass die Leute dort gerne arbeiten. Sind immer hilfsbereit und interessiert. Sie bauen mit ihren Gästen eine Beziehung auf. Deshalb ist die Atmosphäre dort so toll!

Nach 10 Tagen CosyCamp sind wir zu einen anderen, vorgebuchten Platz, in den Süden gefahren. Obwohl das Wetter viel besser (weniger regnerisch halt) war und der Camping an sich gar nicht so schlecht, haben wir \"unseren\" CosyCamp sehr vermisst!

Der Spirit macht es! Danke CosyCamp!
