A plane swim area and the Gardon canyons to your children's delight.
Cévennes Provence is one of the region's rare campsites that do not need a swimming pool. This distinctive feature is an asset, we have a natural pool! We are concerned about our natural environment and believe a swimming pool is ecologically out-of-place because of the water waste, the cleaning products, the visual and noise pollution. Polls taught us our clients share our opinion. Here you will not be annoyed by loud aqua gym music in the middle of the campsite. Wild swimming allows all people to enjoy the refreshing experience of a dip in the river, to play or lazy on its banks with room enough for everyone, no huddled crowds here! Between May and half September bathing conditions are ideal with a water temperature between 20° and 24°C In April, those who resist lower temperatures can plunge in and have fun.
Camping Cévennes-Provence lies at the confluence of the Gardon of Mialet and the Gardon of Saint-Jean-du-Gard. Its banks stretch over 1,5 km. There is a private beach for the campsite's clients.
This river bathing spot is probably unique in the Gard region, why don't you come and see for yourself?
A favoured place for small children and their parents, the shallow water in the plane swim area is a great place for water games with your child. Repose and safety are the key words to describe river swimming in the sun. Next to the river you can relax in the shadow of the trees on a nice recreation field. You can use the picnic tables.
A swimming area for the more sportive and adventurous swimmers. The magnificent granite canyon rocks are wonderful for sunbathing, the river water around them is invigorating.
Many clients call the center of the campsite the « la place du village » (the village square) because of its friendly atmosphere. People meet on the benches, enjoy an ice-cream together while watching the bowls players and the playing children on the playground.
Around this square you'll find the reception, the shop, bar & restaurant, wifi-terrace, the bowls court, musical entertainment twice a week and the playground.
Camping « Cévennes-Provence » does not have an entertainer but activities for young children and adults are offered. At 10:30 pm the bar closes and it's quiet on the campsite. There is no gate at the entrance of the campsite, families who wish to go out to enjoy the night activities in the surroundings can come home at the time they wish. Once or twice a week a band comes to play in front of the bar until 10:30 or 11:00 pm. We take care that rules & regulations are observed and that the site is really quiet at night.
We recommend that families with children between 12 and 20 years carefully read the rules & regulations..
As many people choose Camping Cévennes-Provence for its calm and quiet, we will apply the sanctions mentioned in these rules & regulations to those who do not follow these elementary rules of good behaviour. For the success of your holidays it's very important that our campsite meets your children's wishes.
A nature campsite under the Mediterranean sun in the Languedoc-Roussillon region.
The estate stretches out over 30 hectares and consists of a vast plain flanked by two hills. Only 15 hectares are used for camping, we want the remaining 15 hectares to show nature in all its forms.
This hilly estate is embraced by two rivers called the Gardon de Mialet and the Gardon de Saint-Jean-du-Gard. "Gardon" is a general term shared by many rivers in the Gard. Fishing lovers will love it here!
Over 4 km of private roads and paths cross our estate. Within the campsite you can take short hikes to the signal tower (10th century), the Sentier de la source (The spring track) and the Puech viewpoint.
Our herb garden is open to everyone, our clients can help themselves to the herbs they need for their meal.
Our shady nature campsite counts over 120 tree and shrub species, green is our favourite colour!
