Campsite D'Arpheuilles ***

General information
Guide price €29.60

The charming family camping site Camping d'Arpheuilles is located in a lovely natural area on an inlet of the Loire river in Rhône-Alpes. This is a special location right at the spot where the Loire flows into Lake Villerest. You can boat on the river and swim in the recreation lake. On the banks there is a sandy beach where you can sun yourself and play during the day, and site by a campfire in the evening.

On the lake

The location on the lake at Villerest, an inlet of the Loire river, gives the camping site that something extra. Not only due to the natural experience and the lovely view, but also due to the natural beach and options for fishing, swimming, canoeing or sailing your old boat. About an hour away by boat there is a centuries old castle on the rocks in the lake that you can visit.

Camping with a view

The spacious campsites on grass are partially on terraces and vary in shape and size and are sometimes separated by hedges. Electricity and water are never far away. Some sites are on the lake or on the banks of the river. It is a typical French camping site with a charming atmosphere, sometimes with music in a restaurant that has a covered terrace (roof made of grape leaves).

Campers without their own equipment can get to know glamping in charming lodge tents on the banks of the lake with a beautiful view. The tents do not have their own sanitary facilities, but the chalets and mobile homes do. There are also adapted accommodations for the disabled.

Travelling party: Couple

We came to this site end of May and stayed for 10 days, longer than planned. The site is right by the Loire with 2 small beaches, so from our point of view almost a perfect location and as such we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Apart from being able to swim in the river there is also an excellent swimming pool. The site has a mixture of permanent chalets and camping pitches.the washing facilities are adequate but perhaps a little tired. The young French couple who run the site are extremely friendly and helpful, but don't speak English but that didn't matter as my wife speaks French. The site is accessed by a narrow twisty lane which didn't cause any problems towing the caravan. This site like all others in France will become crowded and hectic end July and August so those looking for peace and quiet should only visit in May, June and September. The site is quite isolated so a car is necessary to go shopping or visit the area.
