Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

The campsite is in the Allier department of the Auvergne region, one of France's oldest provinces and an area reputed for its great outdoors, natural environment and beautiful small rural villages. A land of mountains, valleys and 1800-metre peaks, Auvergne is an excellent destination for active holidays: cycling, fishing, hiking, via ferrata, climbing and paragliding is all on offer.
Guests can also explore the extensive cultural heritage of the region. The Priory of Stain Peter and Sain Paul in Souvigny is only 35 kilometres away. It has an interesting museum home to the 'calendrier de Souvigny', a carved Romanesque pillar depicting a calendar with the farming works. Although not as popular as the Priory, the Saint-Marc's church in Souvigny is also worth a visit.
Apremont, classified among the 'most beautiful villages in France' is home to the Chateau d'Apremont and impressive floral gardens. There is also a museum in the stables of the Chateau which contains various carefully restored horse-drawn carriages.
There is also the medieval town of Nevers with its fifteenth century ducal palace and the imposing cathedral dating back to the sixth century.
