Camping Le Vieux Berger is situated on the outskirts of Lourdes, only 2 km away from the Shrine. You camp here in an attractive and natural setting with mountains, valleys and waterfalls. The green camping site has spacious pitches with ample shade. There are also a few rental accommodation units and designated motorhome sites. These are open throughout the year.
Generously sized camping site with a view
The centre of the camping site consists of a lawn with spacious (100 m2), level and demarcated camping pitches. You will also find the playground here. All pitches on the camping site offer a splendid view of the mountains. The rental accommodation units are situated on the boundary of the camping grounds.
Pedal boating or a game of pétanque
There is no swimming pool on the camping site, but at a distance of some 5 km from the camping site there is a large lake: Lac de Lourdes. Here you can indulge in several water sports. Children may enjoy pedal boating or paddle surfing here. On the camping site is a play ground and a pétanque pitch. There is no entertainment programme.
Behind the reception is a kiosk where you can enjoy a drink and a bite to eat. Snacks are available from the beginning of July to the end of August. There is a fresh bread service in summer. Make sure to get a few pastries as well.
A multifaceted environment
Undoubtedly, you will pay a visit to the Shrine. But Lourdes castle is also well worth a visit. The famous mountain Le Pic du Jer is only a ten minute drive from the camping site. You can travel up the mountain in a hundred year old cable car. Once you reach the top you will enjoy the spectacular panorama of the valley.
