The camp site Sites et Paysages Moulin de Chaules, situated by a crystal clear brook, is part of a former water mill. There are 56 camping pitches, of different sizes. Apart from the pitches situated by the border of the brook, there are also a range of terraces. These terraces are nicely private due to the wide green belts in between them.
The entire property, in harmony with the surroundings, was formerly part of the rural "Chaules" estate. The ruins of the old castle, owned by our neighbours, rise high above the trees and can be visited (at your own risk since parts are a little unstable).
During the high-season (July / August) the camp site is very family oriented with a wide range of facilities for all ages. Out of season, the camp site is very popular with people who prefer a quiet, spacious site with lots of opportunities for walking, excursions, etc.
All the pitches are grassed and situated on the sunny side of the hill, trees provide a variety of shade. The higher terraces give a great view over the surrounding countryside.
A new dedicated sanitary block ( for the upper 2 terraces is located on the 4th terrace.
Remember to bring your plug adaptor since the sockets are French! in 2020
Although the pitches are all grass, we recommend you use "nail" tent pegs, due to the rocky soil.
The sanitary blocks are clean well equipped situated in an attractive barn. They are cleaned frequently and also checked several times a day. At your disposal are:
- Really warm showers, fed by separate water heaters for 24 hr. supply.
