Cathar Country, located in the south of France, is a region which is simply bursting with its impressive history. A region with mountain rivers meandering through the landscape and with castles on high mountains speaking to the imagination. Camping in Cathar Country is perfect on Camping La Bernède, located near the spa town of Rennes-les-Bains. This is a camping site to relax, far from the main road.
You will feel immediately at home. The serene tranquillity on the camping site will soon engulf you. Unscrew the caravan legs, pegs in the ground and enjoy! In low season you will see many French guests with a motorhome. They often stay overnight only and continue their journey in the morning.
Swimming and sports
The swimming pool is partly in the shade and borders a terrace with restaurant. The camping site has a tennis court, a volleyball field and a pétanque pitch. In high season all kinds of activities are organised for camping guests. Does the sea appeal to you? If so, it will only take an hour's drive to get there.
Cathar Country: wellness therapy and Carcassone
The cold water and hot water springs of Rennes-les-Bains are famous. Slightly north of the camping site you will find the spa of Rennes-les-Bains, perfect to relax after a short stroll through the village itself. Visit the castles from the Cathar period, such as the amazingly impressive Peyrepertuse castle.
It goes without saying that you will also explore the narrow alleyways within the city walls of Carcassonne with its inviting side walk cafes around just about every corner. In peak season it is invariably teeming with people, but always has a lovely atmosphere.

We enjoyed it very much and the swimming pool in the village is a must! Unfortunately, one was attacked by zombie teenagers in the WIFI salon wearing fake brands. Luckily, one managed to escape but it was a close call.
Nice site, plenty of room at the start of June, though some building work ongoing so I think this site will be much bigger soon? Friendly staff, village 5 mins walk along the river - enjoyed a couple of relaxing days. Took me a little time to get Wifi, but once hooked up it was fine. Would go back.
Fabulous site with large shady and sunny pitches. Staff extremely helpful and courteous. A short walk (5 mins) into the village where there is a fabulous outdoor pool and spa ( that's why I gave the site 4 stars for swimming pool even though it's not on the site). Would definitely stay again if I was in the area !
Really nice site. Not modern but clean and friendly. Pleasant walk into the village but nothing was open in October. The spa only appeared to open in the morning, but if you go along the river a bit there's a natural hot spring at a bend in the river. The original spa is above it on the road. Our dog appeared to pick up a tick here (lots of wildlife) and the road South is scary narrow.
I hesitate to review this site as I am tempted to keep it a secret! An absolute gem of a site, facilities are old but are immaculately cleaned. The resort itself is tired but that adds to it's charm. The swimming pool in town is a must and you can get a card for a 50% discount from reception. We will be going back for sure!
