General

  • Green site in the spectacular UNESCO-listed city of Le Puy-en-Velay
  • Paragliding, hot air balloon rides and horse riding within easy reach
  • Site entrance crossed by several hiking trails

Pitch up in Le Puy-en-Velay for a green and peaceful spot at the foot of the iron Notre-Dame de France statue, right in the middle of a splendid UNESCO-listed French city famed for its lentils, its cathedral and its lace-making heritage. A most excellent start point for sightseeing, it’s also near the beginning of the Via Podiensis – the oldest French route on the St. James Way pilgrimage route – and close to the banks of the Loire river: whether it's long hikes, river fishing or historic sightseeing you're after, you'll access all from the site and in its surroundings.

Camping de Bouthezard is set across one-and-a-half grassy hectares right in the middle of Le-Puy-en-Velay, among a wild and natural setting; several waymarked walking trails cross the entrance and the river flows peacefully by 200 meters away, making for scenic hiking and fruitful fishing options a short walk away.

When you’re back from gawping at all the gorgeous medieval architecture around the place, pack the kids off to be entertained at the on-site playground, park yourself by your pitch, aaand relax. Barbecues are allowed here, so light the coals, get the grill going and settle back to sizzle – if you’re in town on Wednesdays or Saturdays, then the morning farmers’ market is a cracking spot to pick up local produce to scoff pitchside; if not, then plenty of shops and supermarkets are around too.

Your friendly English-speaking hosts Catherine and Samuel have thoughtfully set the site up to keep everyone entertained: aside from the playground, kids can play among all the green space and trees that are around, play volleyball and badminton, or hang out in the TV room. A kids' club and entertainment evenings are on hand in summer to amply pad out days and nights back at base.

Pitches are spacious, shaded, level and well organised, suitable for tents, campervans and tourers.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

    I like the location, the staff have a friendly helpful manor, the bathrooms and other facilities are clean and well maintained.
    There was a place to wash yourself, your clothes and your dishes. There was a place to sit and get wifi. A freezer/fridge to keep things and a line and pegs to dry your clothes.

Directions


Local attractions

Sports-based activity aplenty awaits nearby – ask Catherine and Samuel where you can head for tennis, or for the best spots for clambering up local climbing routes or canyoning, rafting, canoeing and fishing along the Loire.

Several local hiking routes pass the entrance of the site, or you can tour the area on horseback from the saddle of your bike. If you’re of a daring disposition, you may well rather fancy the idea of paragliding or taking off in a light aircraft flight from Chaspuzac, or floating serenely above in a hot air balloon.

For something to get the kids all giddy, ferry them to La Vague indoor pool complex, a short pootle away: here they can spend oodles of time among the pool that’s kitted out with a curly whirly toboggan slide while you hang out feeling pampered around the hammam and the sauna. For when everyone’s all watered out, a grassy picnic area is outside, so be sure to pack up a basket of local tidbits (procured from Le Puy’s Wednesday and Saturday morning markets?), and maybe even follow it up with an après-scoff snooze on the solarium.
