Value
Our campsite, situated in the hills of Béarn, is surrounded by spectacular views of the valley of Salies and of the Pyrenees. We welcome all campers to contribute to the family-like ambience, and to take coffee on the terrace or to picnic together when horse-riding. Having been in this Medieval French area for over thirty years, we are well known for a laid-back atmosphere which was successfully summarised by one guest who said 'no rules, only love'. Children love to help catch and groom the horses and can enjoy numerous activities including splashing in the swimming pool, go-karting, singing round the campfire, football and volleyball matches and stroking our tusked pig Basquo and the little bunnies. Those who want a break from the bustling barn often wander the nearby markets which are hububs of food, animals and chatter, go walking or cycling through beautiful scenery, visit San Sebastian, or swim and canoe in Salies' rivers. René, Marianne's son, also has his brewery onsite for those who take an interest in proper home-brewed beer. If you prefer wine, our neighbour does wine-tasting evenings, or you can enjoy his wines from our veranda. Each evening, you can watch the sunset from the terrace or on horseback, riding through meadows. The evenings also host our talent shows and billiards and ping pong competitions among the wealth of opportunities to make friends with enthusiastic people from all over Europe.

Being camping lovers we have a very particular list of needs for our camping holidays. This ticked all boxes....quiet, friendly relaxed atmosphere, countryside, pool, trampolines, some activities, entertainment, etc. The terraced pitches are well thought through, private and comfy. And, properly dark at night...no artificial street lamp light...so if you want to spend hours gazing at the stars you actually can. An added bonus with access to horse riding lessons and more on site...great for the kids. This site is really good...so good, we have booked to return next year.

My wife and I did loads of research into campsites in this area. This one, with a write up in the latest edition of “Cool Camping” caught our eye. We’ve used the book loads and stayed on a number of their campsites. I contacted the owner at the beginning of June and she duly booked us in for nine nights. I looked on Facebook and the “new pool” appeared ready for use. Fantastic! When we arrived after a very long journey, the story looked a little different. The pitch that we chose needed to be mowed before we could put our tent up, meaning that we were living among the damp grass cuttings. The campsite is doubtless in a lovely spot. There is more road noise than you might think but it’s a great view. The gravel roads leading up to the wash house have been eroded by recent heavy rains and in some places they are washed away. The back exit gate is virtually impassable- I’m not sure why a bag of gravel or two couldn’t be popped in the crack in the earth! The pool simply wasn’t complete, or anyway near. Marianne informed us we could use it, but it is a pool in the middle of a building site. It was cordoned off and there were guys working on it during the day. Totally unacceptable and when we spoke to the owner, she gave no apology and merely informed us that it should have been finished in March but clearly had run on considerably. The wash block is ok but left drenched when cleaned. No sign of loo roll in the dispenser during our three days. This site is pretty but unkempt. It feels unloved and needs some time and money spending on it. I like shabby chic but not just shabby. We left. We paid up for our wasted time and moved to another site. A disappointing few days that would have been avoided if Marianne had informed us that the pool was nowhere near usable.

Hi Nick, I'm truly sorry that your stay wasn't like you expected. We started this year with unusual amounts of rain, maintenance on the campsite and building projects were massively delayed, the pool was no exception with 3 month delay. Start of June, the forecast was perfect and we were expecting to finish the pool within a week or two. June 13, we had 1,5 months of rain concentrated over 24 hours, our town Salies de Béarn ended up under 2m of water (First time in history. You'll find plenty of videos on the internet). The campsite is on a hill so wasn't hit as bad as Salies, but you've seen it took more time than expected to restore everything back to normal, sorry you had to witness that. I hope the rest of your holiday was perfect and we took note of the other details you mentioned, we're always trying to improve and keep everyone happy. Marianne

This is just what we always look for ....something different. Great owner , very clean facilities , spacious pitches , beautiful views. The only thing that Marianne could not do for us is stop tthe rain so after one night in our Campervan we booked into the most beautiful apartment Beatrice in her Manor House. That was just wow ... undoubted grandeur.

Lovely location and friendly owners and staff. We were welcomed with complimentary drinks in the bar. We stayed for a few days in August 2017 and had a very relaxed and enjoyable time. The camping pitches are a decent size and well laid out. The bar is great and open late (our kids loved the wifi access)...would really recommend the local Rose wine. If you likes horses and ponies you will be in your element....the riding school is very popular. A few things could be improved....having to estimate your toilet roll requirements before you go to your cubicle is a little odd....and some hand-washing soap in the basins would be handy. The swimming pool is busy on hot days and needs a little investment. Apart from these little things...we cant fault it....

We had originally booked to stay for 5 nights with our kids and friends and their children who we were travelling with and ended up extending by a further 3 nights as it was so beautiful and relaxing. Lovely, lovely staff, fab bar, loads of activities and food on offer and just a gorgeous rustic site. Loads for kids to do and the surrounding area is beautiful too. Will definitely be back!
