Pont de Saint Gal campsite on the banks of the Sioule, 1st category river

General

  • Rural site on the banks of the Sioule river, 15 minutes from Ébreuil
  • Next to a canoe rental service and 5 mins' drive from a riding stable
  • Playground, pétanque and snack bar on site

A riverside stay? How remarkably sensible. Take yourself off to Camping du Pont de Saint-Gal in the north of the Puy-de-Dôme department for waterside days: this lovely little site is on the banks of the Sioule river for days of fishing and watersports.

Take strolls along the riverbank for gentle times, fly fish by the site, or set off on a canoe along the water; a canoe rental place is a couple of minutes’ walk away. Hiking, mountain biking and horse riding are all available nearby too, as are castles, museums and the Auvergne Volcanoes Regional Nature Park 20 minutes’ drive to the south. Its biggest peak, the Puy-de-Dome, is an hour’s drive away.

Camping du Pont de Saint-Gal is a peaceful rural site, 15 minutes’ drive from the town of Ébreuil. It has a playground and pétanque court for leisurely days on site, and a snack bar serving drinks, ice creams and light bites on its open-air terrace. Bread deliveries are available and barbecues are allowed if you’d rather sort your own eats.

Local attractions

Canoe trips are available next to the site and a horse riding stable is a couple of kilometres away for placid pursuits close to base. Another nearby option is Château de Chouvigny five minutes’ drive away at the entrance to the Chouvigny gorges: this 13th-century stronghold is privately owned but open to tours in summer and with info in French, English and Dutch.

Another castle is 15 minutes’ drive away at Château Rocher, made up of fortress remains overlooking the Sioule river valley on a cliff high above the river; guided tours are available in July and August. Or delve a bit further back in time with a mosey around the ruins and archaeological sites of Menat (20 minutes) and its 11th-century abbey that’s one of the oldest in Auvergne, now home to a palaeontological museum exhibiting finds from the region.

Car connoisseurs might like a look at Bellenaves Automobile Museum (20 minutes) and its 50 vintage vehicles, heritage days and regular events. Five minutes from here at Vicq, Château de la Mothe is a 13th-century stately home surrounded by a moat, with rooms reconstructing the life of its Renaissance owner Lord Vicq.

Vulcania theme park is 55 minutes’ drive away.
