An exceptional campsite in the Haute Provence
On the heights of Volonne, typical charming small Provençal village, lies campsite Sunêlia L'Hippocampe. With its 5 stars and its location in the Alpes de Haute Provence, L'Hippocampe counts among one of the most beautiful campsites in the region.
A waterfront stay
A member of the Sunêlia chain, a grouping of exceptional campsites, L'Hippocampe extends over an area of 11 hectares, where the gentle and quiet Durance flows, a river which at that precise location, and because a dam has been built further downstream, takes on the appearance of a huge lake.
This idyllic location combined with the fact that the property is today largely wooded and green (olive trees have grown!), ensure tourists comfortable, shady and spacious pitches, with a surface ranging from 100 to 130 m².
As for the modern and comfortable rentals, they form a rich and varied range adapted to all families and budgets. We retain the luxury mobile homes, their design and equipment are worthy of the most beautiful holiday accommodations.
Sports and relaxation are on the menu for your holiday
Taking advantage of its location on the shores of the Durance, L'Hippocampe has built a pier on its banks, so guests can enjoy the lake to go canoeing! The river also allows fishermen addicted to their passion to fish in a relaxed environment.
For swimming, the guests should turn towards the water park of the campsite. 500 m² of water and fun will fill the tourists with happiness. With its two swimming pools (heated in the off season), its whirlpool, its play paddling pool and five water slides, it is the Number 1 attraction of L'Hippocampe.
Around the pools, a sunbathing area, as well as a beach laid to lawn perfectly complement the aquatic park and are enjoyed by holidaymakers, who can indulge in idleness and get a sun tan. This top-of-the-range Alpes de Haute-Provence campsite moreover has a wellness area, which enables campers to take advantage of well-deserved massage sessions.
As a Sunêlia Club campsite, L’Hippocampe offers its residents activities from its opening and various forms of entertainment are planned during weekends in May and June. in the high season, a team of qualified activity leaders are responsible for amusing children and adults alike, and organise unforgettable evenings with shows, cabaret, concerts and fair evenings. Acknowledged for its quality entertainments, this establishment makes a point of organizing them every year for holidaymakers’ greatest delight.
Luberon, Verdon and Mercantour
Halfway between Sisteron and Digne les Bains, L'Hippocampe enjoys an ideal location to discover the Alpes de Haute Provence department. The Alpes de Haute Provence, semi mountainous territory, dotted with rivers and gorges, has many assets to attract tourists.
A few dozen kilometres further south of l'Hippocampe, the fabulous Gorges du Verdon are a perfect example of this. It is indeed between the lakes of Sainte Croix and Esparron that the Verdon has hollowed out the mountains to clear a path to the Valley of the Durance. Deep and dramatic, these canyons are considered by many as the most beautiful canyons in Europe. It must be said that the colour of the water, a mixture of green and turquoise blue, leaves no one indifferent. Thousands of tourists descend canoeing in the Gorges du Verdon every year.
It is also in the Alpes de Haute Provence that we find the nature park of Mercantour, a natural area of great beauty, where fauna and flora cohabit in perfect harmony. Finally, the Luberon massif sets aside many surprises for tourists, through discovering it on foot, by mountain bike or on horseback...
