Beautiful welcoming campsite in idyllic riverside location. Eric and Monique are very welcoming and the campsite is clean with lots of hot water. Enjoyed swimming in the river, running around Ambialet early in the day, returning to the campsite for fresh bread and croissants
We stumbled across this little gem while following the TDF 19 in our campervan and wow......what a great little spot. RIGHT on the river set amongst the trees in the most relaxing atmosphere you could imagine. Erik and Monique are lovely hosts who looked after us from the moment we arrived. Great little bar/dining area and a swim in the river is a must. Told we were the first Aussies to visit with the new owners and they joined us for a few social drinks and had an unforgettable night!!! Amenities were spot on and fresh bread in the morning delivered from the local bakery. Sad to leave and hope to be back again on our next trip.
We stayed in their luxury bell tent and had a lovely and relaxing time. Everything we needed was included in the tent, from cooking equipment to fresh coffee. Erik and Monique are extremely helpful, coming round for bread and croissant orders in the morning and driving us to and from our canoe trip. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and the local town Ambialet is stunning and worth a visit. Live music on wednesday nights in August too so we got to see a great swing band. John and Victoria
We stayed here for 3 nights in May. The new Dutch owners, Erik and Monique, are really helpful and friendly. We had great burgers cooked by Erik and the weekly barbecue was delicious and excellent value. The site itself is quiet and peaceful with views from each pitch of the Tarn. Lots of birds including eagle owls and nightingales. Spotlessly clean facilities. Good for cycle trips along the Tarn and to Albi. If you want lots of holiday camp type activities this site is probably not for you, but if you’re looking for a peaceful, beautiful site in an interesting area then I’d highly recommend a stay.
Stayed at this beautifully located campsite for a week at the end of April. Despite the weather a great stay in a nice spot right on the Tarn. The sanitairy was renewed in 2017 and meets all requirements, functional and clean. A few times took advantage of the opportunity to eat a meal at the campsite that is passionately prepared by the owner; tasty and not expensive. The area is perfect for walking and cycling (with gears of course) and to visit various cities in the area (Albi, Cordes-sur-Ciel, Roquefort-sur-Soulzon). In Roquefort you can visit the caves and cheese factory of this special type of cheese. The nature in the area is still authentic with special plants (gamander broomrape, various orchids) and birds (black kite, eagle owl, golden oriole, nightingale) directly at or near the campsite. In short: a must!…
