The southern French family camping Le Malazéou is situated in the Pyrenees, along the access road to Health Spa Ax-les-Thermes. In winter the ski areas are nearby, in summer the area offers excellent walking opportunities. Here you will find peace and quiet, the historic Cathar region and the access road to Andorra and Spain. An ideal region for numerous outdoor sports.
The mostly flat, wooded terrain lies between the foothills of the Pyrenees. The shallow, fast-flowing river Ariège flows adjacent to the camping site and a small creek winds its way through the grounds. The grounds are well-kept. The sizes of the pitches vary and depend on the size of your camping equipment. You can choose between a spot in the sun or in a (partly) shaded area. The tent pitches are located on the hill. Do you prefer rental accommodation? You have a choice of 73 mobile homes.
Outdoor swimming pool
The heated outdoor swimming pool is surrounded by greenery: a combination of trees and hedges. You will find loungers and some sun umbrellas around the pool. The swimming pool is not very large but is to the liking of most guests.
Outdoor adventure sports
Facilities include an outdoor playground, a sauna with steam bath, a fitness area and fitness track, two beautiful jeu de boules pitches, a brand new mini-golf course and bad-weather facilities. There are activities for children and an entertainment programme for adults. Do you love the outdoors? The area offers ample opportunity for outdoor activities: walking, mountain biking, bicycle racing, horse riding, climbing, paragliding, canyoning, canoeing and rafting are all possible.
In the convivial bar (managed by another owner) you can enjoy a drink as well as basic, delicious French regional dishes. You can order fresh bread at the camping site.

A pleasant terraced campsite with good toilet and washing up facilities. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. The bar/restaurant & pool were closed. The nearby N20 does cause road noise although it was not too intrusive. There were very pleasant walks along the river to a nearby village and into the town of Ax-les-Thermes. Le Grand Cafe in the town provided very good meals at reasonable prices.
The staff are very nice and helpful however other customers were not very friendly and we felt unwelcomed. The toliet block close to us had no hotwater for showers, dishes or laundry and the dish washing area was not cleaned in the 5 days we were there. The area is very beautiful and the VTT good although the town itself did not offer much and we would only return as a stop over point if passing through and not stay for any length of time.
Site ok and a good base for getting to Andorra. Staff were very helpful but our nearest toilet block had no hot water either for showers or dishwashing evening and the following morning.
We visited this site en route to Spain as it is handy for the Puymorens Tunnel, being directly off the N20. (Some road noise). Excellent, heated facilities and good sized pitches (marked, open but some off with hedge marked lanes). We pitched near the entrance but had we been staying longer we would have gone down by the river. Bar, restaurant and pool closed low season - very few vans on site.
Short, pleasant, riverside walk into Ax - nice, small town. Recommended.
We visited off season in early February. The main facilities were not open, but no matter, the site was an excellent choice for us en route for Spain. We stayed three nights and also visited Andorra which was within easy reach.
On arrival the site was under a foot of snow. We were told to choose our pitch and they would clear it of snow.
This promise was carried out within five minutes of us choosing our spot. Full marks!
The toilet blocks wer heated and very clean.
We would not hesitate to re-use thise site.
