Within walking distance of St.-Nectaire, known for its cheese with the same name, you will find the Flower Camping La Vallée Verte. This tranquil, green camping site lies at an altitude of 700 m on the flanks of the Puy de Dôme, in the sloping, green volcanic region of Parc Naturel Regional des Volcans d’Auvergne.
On this well maintained camping site (2.5 ha) you have a choice of camping pitches varying in size from 80 to 100 m2, which are separated by hedges or other greenery. The trees offer adequate shade and the beautiful flower beds give the camping site an attractive appearance. The mobile homes, bungalows and trekker huts are located behind the swimming pool.
Swimming pool with sliding roof
The heated swimming pool (91 m2) has a sliding roof and toddler pool (25 m2). Children will be happy to see that besides a playground, there is also a trampoline and bouncer. Join a game of table tennis or table football, or play a game of badminton or jeu de boules.
Walking along waterfalls
The camping site is an excellent base to explore the volcanic, green region by bicycle or on foot. The hiking trails near the camping are moderately difficult. In the Sancy mountains there are more than thirty short and long walking trails in the vicinity with lakes and waterfalls.
At the fairly basic snack-bar you can buy snacks, pizzas, wine, ice cream and take-away meals in high season, which you can eat and drink on the terrace or elsewhere.
Fresh bread is available by order. You will find a few restaurants and a small supermarket in St.-Nectaire at 400 m from the camping site. In high season there is a regular market around the church of St.-Nectaire.

Liked - Pitches were well spaced out and secluded whole site was well cared for and clean
Liked - We’ve been visiting this site for several years having first discovered it 4 or 5 years ago and we keep coming back. Great service even better food.
Liked - Well placed campsite for Saint Nectaire and the área. The pitches are a reasonable size.
Disliked - In the six nights we were there, I had only one hot shower. The wáter came out freezing cold most of the time. For the prices you pay in a campsite like this, you expect hot wáter. We camped in five other sites during the three weeks we were in France: all were cheaper and all had round-the-clock hot wáter. For this reason I would not recommend this campsite.
Liked - Great site all round
Liked - Owners very helpful knowledgable, kept their site very clean and tidy we had a fantastic holiday and we’ll certainly return
Disliked - No
Very nice little site with plenty of space, the pool is very nice with the bonus of water slides for the children - very good value for money.
