An exceptional campsite in the Haute Provence region

The L'Hippocampe campsite is ideally situated on the banks of the Durance river, near the charming Provençal villages of Volonne and Château Arnoux. Having 5 stars and an exceptional location in the Alpes de Haute Provence department, L'Hippocampe is one of the most beautiful campsites in the region.

A stay by the water

A member of the Sunêlia group, a grouping of exceptional campsites, L'Hippocampe stretches over grounds of 17 hectares, in the two villages of Volonne and Château Arnoux, linked by a bridge which crosses the Durance river.

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 260 m².

As for the modern and comfortable rentals, they form a rich and varied range adapted to all families and budgets. We mention the luxury mobile homes, the design and facilities of which are worthy of the loveliest holiday accommodation.

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 landing stage 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, guests should head for the campsite’s water park. 500 m² of water and fun will delight holidaymakers. With the two swimming pools (heated in the off season), whirlpool, 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. The new flagship facility for summer 2024 - the creation of a 3,400 m² lagoon. Turquoise waters surrounded by white sands, a heavenly landscape, which will make your holiday one to remember. Exoticism and change of scenery guaranteed! This lagoon will be located on the Château Arnoux site.

This high-end campsite in the Alpes de Haute-Provence also has a wellness area, the Nature Spa with panoramic views over the Durance.  Here you can recharge your batteries, by contemplating the surrounding countryside, whilst making the most of the relaxing benefits of our facilities. A gym and children’s inflatable play area are amongst this year’s innovations. 

As a Sunêlia Club campsite, L’Hippocampe offers residents activities from when it opens, and various forms of entertainment are planned during the Ascension and Whitsun holiday weekends (taking place in May). in the high season, a team of professional activity leaders are responsible for amusing children and adults alike, and organise unforgettable evenings with shows, cabaret, concerts and Provençal “kermesse” (festival) nights! Renowned for its quality entertainment, this establishment makes a real point of organizing them every year to 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...
