L'Ardéchois, a 5-star campsite in Vallon Pont d'Arc
In a protected natural environment, and on the banks of the Ardèche river, nestles the 5-star Ardèche campsite L’Ardéchois. This high-end establishment, located in Vallon Pont d'Arc, whose natural arch marks the entrance to the Ardèche gorges, is an ideal holiday destination in a region with a remarkable historical and natural heritage.
A perfect setting on the banks of the Ardèche river
With its 244 pitches, of which 25 are nowadays occupied by modern and comfortable mobile homes, L'Ardéchois has a strong case for attracting tourists. And this starts with the property on which this campsite is established since 1984. Today this 6-acres park on the riverside is green and widely planted, perfect to shade a good part of the pitches.
And this river is not the slightest as it is the Ardèche River, a water stream taking its source on top of the Chavade, in the middle of Vivarais. Before flowing into the Rhone River, this river has dug a canyon of great beauty; the gorges of the Ardèche. These canyons, 10 kilometres long, start at the Pont d'Arc, a few steps from the campsite.
You will have therefore understood, that it is within a perfect setting that this campsite has been created. This situation allows residents of L'Ardéchois to enjoy the natural pebble stone beaches and swim in the river, but it also offers the possibility to make a canoe trip in the canyons directly from the campsite. The latter has its own water sports centre, so it is thus possible to hire your own equipment and have kayaking lessons without needing to take the car...
The gateway to the Ardèche gorges
Moreover, you can swim in the Ardèche River. L'Ardéchois has its own water park, heated off season. It includes two large swimming pools, a paddling pool for kids and a whirlpool for relaxation.
An entertainment area also welcomes children. Qualified and multilingual youth leaders propose sports and fun activities. It is the ideal place to make new friends and grant some free time to parents!
This way, they can enjoy the numerous services that the campsite offers, starting with its bar-restaurant and even its grocery store. The L'Ardéchois campsite also has a superb and modern wellness area. Laid out in the vicinity of the aquatic area, it comprises a steam room, a sauna, a spa, an ice fountain and an experiential shower. It is equally possible to have a massage and enjoy treatments within the wellness area.
