from 28 reviews Write review

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 campsite and divides the campsite in two. By constructing a dam in the river in summer, a beautiful natural swimming lake with waterfall is created.

Splendid views

The campsite is well maintained, playfully and spaciously designed with a diverse vegetation of trees and shrubs. A river flows 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 campsite.

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 campsite 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.

Campsite 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.

Keurige nette camping. De camping heeft een nieuw en een oud gedeelte, vanzelfsprekend zijn de faciliteiten op het oude gedeelte iets meer gedateerd. Wel netjes en schoon. Het camping gedeelte aan de andere kant van de rivier is te bereiken door middel van een weg die door de rivier heen aan is gelegd, dit is wel een steil stukje. Het oude gedeelte is allemaal aflopend terrein, sommige plekken zijn daardoor wel erg schuin. Heel erg mooi zwembad, met bar, zonder zwemtoezicht, deels onverwarmd. Mooie omgeving, in het hart van de Ardèche. Fietsroutes vanaf de camping. Vriendelijk personeel en uitgebreide informatievoorziening op de camping (bijv. waar er op welke dagen marktjes zijn).

Camping met supergrote plaatsen in een prachtige omgeving. Dicht bij de route nationale maar toch rustig gelegen met prachtig uitzicht op de bergen van de Coiron. Voor liefhebbers van zwemmen is er keuze uit een groot zwembad en een natuurbad, beide met ligstoelen.

Hele mooie camping met grote plaatsen
In het hoog seizoen erg druk maar gezellig.
Sanitair is goed en schoon!
Veel animatie voor kinderen en je heb de keuzen voor zwemplezier, zwembad of rivier.
Het restaurant is goed tot redelijk, niet erg veel keuze. Maar wel gezellig!
De eigenares( Nederlands) gastvrij en vriendelijk. Een leuke camping voor jong en oud.
Geen WiFi bij je tent of caravan mits je betaalde WiFi neemt.
