A beautiful woodland site on the banks of the river L’Alzon. Part of the ACSI discount scheme.
Arrival at reception, booked in quickly, choose a pitch and let them know which one. A restaurant/takeaway is located next to reception while a shop selling fresh bread, espadrilles and basic food essentials is to the rear of reception. We can personally recommend the takeaway pizza and fresh bread.
Sunlight dapples the pitches through the tree cover. Hard ground with a mixture in pitch sizes. Most pitches seem well spaced out and not on top of each other. A few pitches also have elevated views over the river.
To connect to the EHU we had to use our two pin adapter. These are also for sale and rentable in reception.
The site has areas for pétanque, table tennis, tennis, volleyball and football with a couple of children’s play areas dotted around the site. There is also a swimming pool, there is a dress code of no shorts for men, speedos only! Being on the banks of the river the site has its own pebbled beach, perfect for dog walking and letting them have a swim.
There are 4 facilities blocks on site with two containing washing machines. Covered outdoor areas for dishwashing and hand washing laundry. Toilets and showers here are communal with men and women sharing the same facilities. This is something I struggled to come to terms with, hence we only stayed 1 night. Toilet roll and hand soap are provided but the facilities are very basic.
This site is ideally located for visiting the Pont du Gard, which is only 5 minutes walking distance from the site and you are able to view it for free.
Wifi is chargeable with the first hour for free. Wifi charges were expensive so we elected to use our 3G router and our own ‘Three’ SIM card. We paid €18.30 site fees for one night for two people.
Would we come again? Possibly, but just because of my prudishness I would use my own shower and toilet. We also struggled with Flies at this site, but this has to be expected in a perfect Forest setting, plus we didn’t have any repellent sprays or devices, so come prepared.

when you say ‘no shorts’ for me – I presume you mean swim shorts and that they should wear swimming trunks?

Haha. Yes! I didn’t read it like that! Naked men in the pool! Not nice!
