Centrally located in the Auvergne, 250 m from the centre of the charming village of Orcet, lies the well maintained camping site Le Clos Auroy. On the camping site (2.5 ha) you will find attractive flower beds which give the camping site a charming appearance. You have a direct view of the swimming pool and slides, bar and terrace. Especially families with young children, often in transit, visit this camping site.
View of the mountains
You will find the spacious camping pitches (100 m2) on four flat elevations with a great deal of privacy being provided by the tall conifers on both sides. You can also opt for a sociable small field that is shared with other campers. On the terraced camping site with hard surface, most camping pitches are in the shade. You can hire an ecolodge tent without sanitary facilities. There are also a few rental mobile homes on the camping site.
The swimming paradise has a playful design with artificial rocks. You can swim in the heated pool (72 m2), glide down the water slides or enjoy the jacuzzi pool with rapid. The heated toddler pool with fountain is quite large.
You can order pizza, French fries and ice cream from the snack bar. There is also a small camping shop for basic groceries. The village has a supermarket. Each morning (in high season only) a baker with bread cart can be found at the gate.
The camping site is directly situated along a river with adjacent footpath. This allows you to explore the region starting from the grounds. On the camping site is a large playground, a trampoline, a sports field, jeu-de-boule pitch and a table tennis table.

Having stayed here before, we returned for an overnight stop. Both of the owners pleasant and helpful.ACSI is not accepted during the winter months. As it was in the winter period the toilet block was unisex.lashings of very hot water available and a rarity in France hand wash and toilet seats WELL DONE.
Madame was most helpful in getting a vets appointment for that same day 1 hours notice for our dogs so as to be able to return to UK having been messed around by a vet in an other area.
Stayed late March for one night greeted my friendly helpful staff. We were struck by how well maintained and clean the whole site was. Toilet blocks spotless, with modern fittings. Water very hot for washing up dishes the same could not be said for the showers which were at best Luke warm tepid. Yet another site where the WIFI during the evening was virtually non existent. Recommend a visit to the village bakery for her what I could best describe as her almond covered cakes and cereal bread. Would definitely return.
Visited for one night in February 2017. Site in winter mode so everything except one set of showers/toilets closed. No bread available either. Pitch very good and WiFi adequate (€3 for 24 hrs). ACSI discount only from 1/4/2017.
However, no motorhome fill up services as all taps were either disabled, removed or shut off. Motorhome service point also disabled - disposal only. Shower temperature reduced from previous year resulting in a tepid shower. Very expensive for what you got on this particular date.
Very pleasant site with excellent facilities that are clean and well maintained. Pitches are grassy, flat, spacious and divided by hedges for privacy. The site is quiet and night with no noisy entertainment. Would definitely return to this site.
We could not believe the off hand way we were spoken to by the man in the acceuil when we arrived. I can think of no word to describe him other than rude. He spoke rapid French and made no attempt to speak slowly to make it easier for us to understand him. The pitch was fine for a night stop but would not want to stay longer as the pitches were divided by very tall cuprous trees. The showers etc. were spotless clean with abundant hot water.
Stayed for one night. Nice pitch and campsite. Bar pool snack bar etc. bread man at 9am . Nice friendly site . Beware of the showers though red hot with just a push button no control over temp. Far to hot to stand under so be careful with kids.
Overnight stay on route South. Great as site is just off road. Places near to buy supplies. Lovely view of the valley.
Very attractive and well maintained site with good sanitary. None of the fresh water taps were turned on during our visit in mid-February.
Be aware, ACSI discount does not apply until April.
Orcet village is very attractive and there is a boulangerie and mini market there.
Visited for overnight stay the first week of November 2014 on route north, toilet facilities are good but due to the high hedges the pitches were damp. It appeared that levelling ramps would be needed in some areas. Although it was low season ACSI was not excepted per night, other than toilets, water and electric there were no other facilities available.
Have been staying here on & off for well over 10yrs. & what was a good site then just seems to be getting better & better. O.K. it's not cheap in high season but for convenience of access from the A75, nearby countryside & ease of travel to Clermont-Ferrand or elswhere for days out it is hard to beat. The main facility block, fairly recently refurbished, is excellent - especially in the winter when it's quite cosy - & the new water slides, an addition this summer to the pool area, will "wow" the kids! We'll be back again & again. Oh & there's snacks on site (including pizzas), more pizzas close by (recommend Mondial which is on the village by-pass past the lake (fishing available with permit) & equestrian centre), golf not far away, a large hyper-market in Le Cendre but also a mini-market & two bakeries plus bars & a restaurant in Orcet village centre. What's not to like?
