Camping La Simioune is an older, renovated terraced campsite near the town of Bollène on the edge of Provence. The campsite is situated on the top of a hill, in the middle of a pine forest: the ideal playground for children. Next to the campsite is a climbing course, where small adventurers can climb to their heart's content.

Camping in the forest

This campsite is not suitable for campers who like straight, well-defined plots. The natural environment has been taken into account in the construction of the pitches. This has resulted in pitches with sandy soil, a natural and random demarcation of tall pine trees and, above all, lots of space. Sandy paths lead you to your camping pitch or rental accommodation, which are situated at different heights.

Swimming pool and sports fields

Most of the facilities can be found near the entrance to the campsite. On the right side of the reception building, in a sunny spot, are the modern swimming pool and the cheerful paddling pool. On the other side there is a volleyball court and basketball court.

Bollène Aventure climbing park

The tall trees on the campsite invite you to climb, especially among the younger campers. Now, the straight trunks of pines on the campsite may not be ideal for climbing, but fortunately the Bollène Aventure climbing park is right next to the campsite. Here, campers of all ages and levels can climb up on different courses.

Music nights and pizza

The snack bar at the reception building is often the setting for evenings with music during the high season. During these cosy gatherings, good food is provided; at other times you can order fries and pizza in the snack bar.

Heike , on this campsite in August 2019


Travelling party: Family with children, 12 - 18 years

Liked - Für einen Zwischenstopp auf dem Weg in den weiteren Süden einfach ideal. Nahe der Autobahn, ca. 10 Minuten entfernt. Mitten in einem Pinienwald, hier kommt man zur Ruhe. Der Weg/Straße dorthin ist ein bisschen schmal, aber selbst mit einem 7 m Wohnmobil zu schaffen.
Netter Empfang, klassischer Campingplatz ohne viel Schnickschnack. Baguette Service für morgens wunderbar und vor allem lecker. Schwimmbad klein aber fein und ausreichend für eine Erfrischung.

Disliked - Prima wäre es wenn es Toilettenpapier auf den Toiletten gäbe und Seife am Handwaschbecken für danach - aber das ist nur ein kleiner Minuspunkt - Camper sind in der Regel gut ausgestattet

Lovely surroundings - wooded - peaceful. Loos clean but no seat or paper. Reception and food outlet very limited in early May. OK for a stopover.
