The children at our campsite

In July and August children occupy an important and special place at our campsite.

During that period we provide a varied program of supervised activities, which will enable them to enjoy their holidays to the full !

In the morning our youngest guests are welcomed at the Children’s Club, which has its ‘seat’ in the bar. There they take part in creative activities such as drawing, painting, cutting and pasting, but also singing and dancing and playing games.

On other occasions we bake pancakes and pizzas, which the children will decorate in their own special way before eating them …

Games like treasure hunt, live bingo and live stratego also form part of the program, as well as ‘thrilling’ lantern parades (in the dark!), with lanterns made by the children themselves!

For the older boys and girls there are games and competitions such as volleyball, table tennis and water polo.

The whole family can have fun during an evening of ‘moonlight swimming’, participate in a barbecue with live music, or enjoy a lovely summer’s evening walk through a picturesque medieval village.

For the sports enthusiasts there are organized canoe trips on the river Drôme, or the Adventure Park ‘Indian Forest’ for an exciting climbing experience.

Summer’s evening walks at Mirmande and Crussol Castle (alternately)

At regular intervals throughout the season, we pay a visit to the charming medieval village of Mirmande (listed as one of the most beautiful villages of France). Our stroll uphill through the meandering paved streets takes us to the pretty romanesque church of Saint Foy at the top of the hill.

Or we visit the ruins of Crussol Castle, a 12th-century medieval fortress perched on a rocky spur opposite Valence, looking down on the Rhône Valley. We begin our walk at the car park below the castle ruins. At the top we are rewarded with fantastic views !

(We go by car from Saint Laurent du Pape to the parking area at Mirmande or Crussol Castle, where our walk starts.)

Our activity program will run from the beginning of July until the last week of August.

Paddling pool

Our campsite disposes of a large L-shaped swimming pool (320 m2) and paddling pool (50 m2), both safely fenced off.

The paddling pool is provided with mini slides for toddlers. Here the children can bring their own little buckets and balls to play with.

On the sunny terrace there are deck chairs and parasols (for the parents !).

The pool water is not artificially heated.

Baby room

The large toilet block in the lower campground has a baby room with special facilities for babies and children : children’s toilets, a children’s shower, a baby bath tub and a baby changing mat.

 

Jeu de boules

Our jeu de boules/pétanque court is located close to the swimming pool under the shelter of plane-trees, which makes a game of pétanque enjoyable, even in midsummer !
Every spring, as tradition has it, we organize friendly tournaments against the ‘pétanque’ players of our village.

Volleyball Court

A busy activity at the volleyball court ! Players young and old ardently take part in the weekly volleyball match.

Paddle Pool

In July and August games for toddlers are organized in the paddle pool : water games, dancing and singing, or just splashing around… Parents are welcome to join in !

Table Tennis

Outside the bar there is a roofed area for playing table tennis. As this is also a meeting place for the young, there will always be someone there to play with.

Children’s Playground

Besides the familiar seesaw and swing, there is also a nice little steam train, which will stimulate the imagination of the youngest. A challenging climbing frame will certainly seduce the bigger ones.

Canoeing

Descending the Ardèche river is a real challenge, and a unique opportunity to discover the wild and spectacular scenery of the Gorges of the Ardèche and its amazing natural phenomenon : the Pont d’Arc.
