General

  • Riverside campsite near the Pyrenees
  • On-site snack bar, summer entertainment and many sports available
  • Between Pau and Lourdes

At the edge of a river near the Pyrenees, within easy reach of Bious-Artigues lake, and with long lengths of walking and cycling trails snaking around its Pyrénées-Atlantiques countryside – oui, Camping Le Saillet is an outdoorsy kind of site.

There's direct access to the river from here for rafting, swimming, paddling, fishing and canoeing, and easy access to hiking, mountain trekking and cycling high up nearby. Walks run alongside the river or up to the sanctuary of Bétharram Caves in nearby Lourdes.

If you do want to kick back around base, Camping Le Saillet has a pool, playground, deckchairs and regular creative activities such as pottery. There's also a snack bar with covered terrace and grassed seating, dishing up regional specialties, cold drinks and regular live music.

Among the modern and comfy amenities are shower and toilet block suitable for disabled guests, a launderette and a washing-up area.

Shops, bars and restaurants are in the local village, five minutes' walk away.

  • Liked: 

    This place is a hidden gem! Really spacious, chilled campsite with large grass pitches divided by hedges, in between the river and the foothills of the Pyrenees so the location is stunning. Pool, snack bar with chill out area and tennis/badminton/table tennis/volleyball which are all free so our 10 and 11 year old were able to entertain themselves. Also great for kayaking and white water stuff.

    No onsite shop but there's a general store and bakery 5 mins walk away in the village, and Super U and Intermarché are about 10 mins drive.

    The couple who run it are super helpful and really laid back. We extended our stay and would definitely go back.

    Disliked: 

    Only minor grumble is that you have to supply your own toilet paper and soap

Directions


Local attractions

Several walking routes start nearby from Camping Le Saillet, including scenic ones along the river and one up to the sanctuary of Lourdes's Bétharram caves, the series of caverns near Asson, Saint-Pé-de-Bigorre and the site's local commune of Lestelle-Bétharram. A walk of almost three kilometres underground covers the levels dug into the mountain by the flowing river.

Another excellent local option is Pau, the Pyrenees city with spectacular and famed views across the mountains. Also in town are the medieval monument of the Château de Pau, housing a national museum that's one of the most visited in France; Beaumont Park, a top picnic spot shaded by centenarian trees; the fine arts museum, with works from the fifteenth to twentieth centuries including by Rubens and Degas; the hillside  Pavillon des Arts exhibition space, and several festivals running throughout the year.

Nearby Lourdes is one of the most visited pilgrimage sites in the world and the most visited site in France after Paris. Across the bridge from the town centre and surrounded by extensive gardens is the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes, with churches, chapels and crypts including the huge and mostly underground Basilica of St Pius X, able to accommodate up to 25,000 people.
