Camping or glamping?
Here camping varies from basic to luxurious. The spacious campsites are pretty, primarily flat and well organized. The sanitation is modern. There is a choice of a standard site with or without electricity, a comfort site with a water connection and a premium site with its own refrigerator, picnic table, gas barbecue and two loungers. If you don't have your own equipment, you can rent a Coco Sweet tent or choose the spacious and charming glamping tent.
Water fun and amusement
The camping site has three swimming pools, a large and deep outdoor pool, a heated shallow pool and a heated kiddie pool. There are also four water slides next to each other and a water play area for the little ones. There are play areas, tennis courts, a grass football pitch and jeu-de-boules pitch. The older youth can strut the latest dance moves in the teenager disco (July and August).
To do and see
La Paille Basse is very child-friendly, so in the summer months many families have fun with the children. Other guests are active campers who like to hike in the surrounding area and culture lovers who really love the picturesque villages, castles and churches in the area.
