Municipal campsite in Puy-en-Velay

Camping de Bouthezard is a small-scale and welcoming campsite with just 72 camping pitches, suitable for tents, caravans and camper vans. The camping pitches vary in size and have plenty of shade. Campers come here to enjoy the peace and quiet and to explore the surroundings. The campsite itself does not have many amenities, but it is ideally situated. A very large supermarket, where you can do your daily groceries, is just a five-minute walk away. Furthermore, you can walk within a couple of minutes to the historical town of Puy-en-Velay.

Especially for culture enthusiasts

Le Puy-en-Velay is a town that has secured a spot on the UNESCO World Heritage list. It is also known as the pilgrim town. The town is one of the most important stopping places along the pilgrim route to Santiago de Compostela. The town is staggeringly beautiful with its cathedral, beautiful squares, and the Black Madonna which you can view here. Are you looking for a challenge? Then climb 80 metres up to the chapel of Saint-Michel D'Aiguilhe, built on top of an old volcanic plug. From here, you will have a beautiful view of the Haute-Loire region.

Kleiner, netter Campingplatz mit sehr freundlichem Personal. Schöne mit Bäumen bestandene Anlage.
Abends gibts leckere Pizza vom mobilen Pizzabäcker nahe dem Campingplatz. Stadtnah aber recht ruhig. Beim nächsten Mal bleiben wir länger.
