Le Carpe Diem, a luxury campsite in Vaison-la-Romaine
The 4-star campsite Carpe Diem is situated barely 1.5 kilometres from the town centre of Vaison-la-Romaine, in the Vaucluse department. A member of the Capfun group, this top-of-the-range campsite is a perfect break for those who wish to combine rest and leisure activity, with discovering exceptional historical heritage during their holidays!
A dream campsite…
Vaison-la-Romaine is far from being a tourist destination like any other. This Vaucluse commune indeed has a substantial historical heritage, to say the least from its remains dating back to Gallo-Roman times, to its Comtes de Toulouse château (named after the counts of Toulouse) and its medieval town!
A stone's throw from the largest open-air archaeological site in France, the Le Carpe Diem campsite extends over an area of nine hectares, two-thirds of which is woodland. There are 312 plots some of which have been laid out as pitches so as to accommodate campers and their tent, their caravan and/or their camper. Moreover, a proportion of these plots are now occupied by holiday rental accommodation allowing for the provision of extra comfort to tourists wishing to stay in Vaison-la-Romaine.
Holidaymakers' comfort and satisfaction is moreover one of this campsite's prime concerns. Proof of this is seen with some plots, that are reserved for campers, on the site being equipped with a garden shed. This contains a refrigerator, a table set including six chairs, two deckchairs, as well as a barbecue.
Where rest and leisure activities reign supreme...
The holiday hire accommodation units, which are as numerous as they are varied, make it possible, to adapt to the wishes and needs of countless holidaymakers. Apart from furnished tents and fully fitted out tents there are thus chalets, as well as an entire range of mobile homes. Modern and spacious, this holiday hire accommodation is certainly the most comfortable on the Le Carpe Diem campsite.
This is a campsite, which also has the most top-of the-range facilities in the Vaison-la-Romaine vicinity to attract holidaymakers. Amongst the latter, there is an aquatic park, with an impressive surface area. It is made up of two outside swimming pools, one of which is heated, an indoor heated pool, a paddling pool with a water slide for the very young, as well as three water slides which are each as magnificent as the others. The latter are a multi-lane racer slide, a Space slide and a Spacebowl!
Amongst the other on-site facilities, note the presence of the multi-sports ground adjoining the aquatic area, a mini-golf course, table tennis tables, two areas for playing boules, a video games room and a Carabouille Fairy playground for children, typical of member campsites within the Capfun group. The very young are moreover spoilt during their stay at Vaison-la-Romaine, as they can have fun on a bouncy castle or join the mini-club to make friends!
Combine your stay with discovering exceptional historical heritage.
Adults are also pampered as an abundance of activities and entertainment are organised, as much during the daytime as in the evening. Moreover, there is a multitude of services on the campsite, so that holidaymakers do not even have to leave the campsite to go and do their shopping. There is thus an on-site grocery at Le Carpe Diem which, furthermore, sells the region's locally-grown produce.
Lastly, you should know that the campsite has a bakery point and a newspaper stand, as well as a snack bar and bar, in which holidaymakers may rest and enjoy themselves without any degree of moderation!
A town famous for its art and history, Vaison-la-Romaine, is a renowned holiday resort situated in the north of the Vaucluse department.
