Campsite Bagatelle ***

General information
Guide price €35.30

This very modest camping site with youth hostel and restaurant lies directly opposite the old centre of Avignon. From the terrace you have a view of the Palais des Papes, the largest Gothic building from the Middle Ages in Europe. The camping site lies directly on the Rhône, near the famous bridge over the river. You cannot camp any closer to the city, it is only a ten minute walk to the centre. Camping Bagatelle (open throughout the year) is convenient for a short stay only. For instance, as an overnight stop or to visit Avignon.

Transit camping site

There are more than 200 touring pitches and some 20 motorhome pitches. You can expect compact pitches. The terrain does not have much to offer. There a some hedges here and there for demarcation. Bagatelle also has a youth hostel and a hotel on the grounds. Your fellow campers are people who want to visit Avignon. They come here in July for the well-known annual arts festival. La Bagatelle is actually a transit camping site, intended for guests who are mainly interested in the city sights.

Swimming and canoeing

Adjacent to the camping site is a swimming pool (not part of the camping site), which is also located by the Rhône. The river is not suitable for swimming, but canoeing is a favourite pastime here.

Eating and drinking

The large camping site supermarket stocks an extensive range. The restaurant prepares good, affordable meals and has a large terrace. Both restaurant and terrace offer an attractive view of the city.

Sanitary facilities

The sanitary facilities are housed in a large and old building. All in all it is very basic and, according to Dutch standards, somewhat dated.

This is a perfectly adequate city site, usefully close to the main sights. Yes the facilities are old, but they were clean and the showers lovely and hot. The pitches are reasonably flat, electric accessible and enough space for most vans. It was quiet and peaceful while we were here. The shop was quite well stocked, but bread needs to be ordered. There’s a proper launderette and s restaurant on site, but we used neither. We’d come again.

Travelling party: Seniors

Liked - This campsite has an ideal location for visiting Avignon, just a 15 minute walk away over the bridge. The entire site is sheltered tall Sycamore trees which would provide shade from the scorching sun in summer. Although it is a city site and therefore busy, the pitch felt private and was quiet and relaxing. We came for one night and stayed for three.
The toilets and sanitary facilities let the site down. They are very old, late 50’s perhaps and are long overdue a complete refurbishment, however they are kept clean and there is lots of very hot water. If you turn up in an Campervan you may be horrified by them but a seasoned camper will have seen much worse ( we have in Cornwall, Parr Sands).
Other positives are a very good mini market, and an inexpensive Resturaunt with a view over the river to the walled city.
We would defiantly come here again.
