On the sociable, child-friendly Camping Les Arches you will find much greenery, peace, space and hospitality. It is situated against a hill in a rural part of the Ardèche. The Claduègne river flows through the camping site and divides the camping site in two. By constructing a dam in the river in summer, a beautiful natural swimming lake with waterfall is created.

Splendid views

The camping site is well maintained, playfully and spaciously designed with a diverse vegetation of trees and shrubs. A river flows through through the campsite. On one side of the water is the old section with lots of greenery and privacy. The newer section offers a splendid view, but less shade and privacy due to the young vegetation. Want to rent something? The accommodation units (mainly chalets) are spread over the camping site.

Natural swimming lake

There is a heated swimming pool with a separate children's section, surrounded by sun loungers, sun umbrellas and flowers. The largest attraction of the camping is the natural swimming pool which the owners create themselves by construction a dam in the river. Next to it is a natural grass and pebble beach.

Tractor rides

The camping site has several playgrounds, soccer fields, jeu-de-boule pitches, table tennis tables and a volleyball field. In high season a lot of attention is paid to children. For instance, Patrick, the owner, offers children a ride on his tractor. There is also a crafts afternoon twice a week, and there are guided walks and communal meals.

Camping site restaurant

There is a wide choice available in the camping restaurant with covered terrace. They also have ice cream and take-away meals. There is bread service.

Topcampings! Ruime plaatsen, super aardige ontvangst, receptie de hele dag open, Nederlands en Frans gesproken.
Fijne rivier, nieuw zwembad, mooi uitzicht. Supermarkt in de buurt.

Wat een fantastische mooie parkachtige camping, met supergrote plaatsen, waarvan sommigen met een eigen terrasbalkon of eigen carport/overkapping! Heel vriendelijk en bekwaam personeel die volop tips hebben om in de omgeving te fietsen of wandelen. De camping ligt wat verder weg van de toeristische Ardèche, maar daardoor erg rustig. 3 geplande nachten werden 2 weken, dat zegt genoeg!!

Een zeer aangename camping met zeer vriendelijk personeel en grote plaatsen met pergola\'s. Op korte afstand is er een supermarkt. Restaurant is ook prima.

Leuke, kindvriendelijke camping. Vooral het riviertje met de damwand waardoor een groot bassins ontstaat is erg leuk.

Travelling party: Family with children, 12 - 18 years

we kwamen voor 1 nacht maar voelde gelijk de gezelligheid en de sfeer bij de receptie..heel vriendelijk en konden zelf uitzoeken waar we wilde staan met de camper. mooie grote plek. We hebben na een tip van het vriendelijke jongedame heerlijk gezwommen in de rivier!! Super! daarna nog in het zwembad maar daar was het heel druk en geen bedje vrij, dit was voor ons geen probleem..even zwemmen en daarna genieten van het mooie weer
een aamrader !!

Deze fantastische camping is een bezoek meer dan waard. De ontvangst op de receptie was super, we hebben zo een vriendelijke ontvangst nog nergens ervaren. De percelen zijn ruim en er zijn groene ruimtes tussen de percelen zodat je een open gevoel hebt. Wij stonden op het nieuwe gedeelte boven. Het sanitair is hier modern en wordt heel goed schoongemaakt.
De camping wordt vooral door Nederlanders bezocht.

Zeer vriendelijk en behulpzaam personeel.
Van het restaurant hebben we zelf geen gebruik gemaakt maar als we langs kwamen zat het goed vol met gasten.
Leuke attentie bij het uitschrijven en betalen was een welkome verrassing.
