  • In the Livradois-Forez Regional Natural Park, 2km from Vollore-Ville
  • Volcano views on site; an hour's drive from Puy-de-Dôme and Vulcania
  • Heated outdoor pool, playground and bar-restaurant
Fancy a foray to the Livradois-Forez Regional Natural Park? Make tracks for Camping Le Montbartoux for a stay right there in the park, surrounded by quiet woodland and trails through the trees, and with some stunning views towards the region’s chain of volcanoes. Venture along the road for a couple of kilometres from this Auvergne site and you’ll happen upon the village of Vollore-Ville – a petite (and pretty) place but big enough to be home to a café, bakery, grocery store and a couple of other handy bits and bobs. If you’re after more extensive amenities, plot a course to Courpière (15 minutes’ drive) or Thiers (25 minutes). Not in the mood to forage for food? Keep things simple by availing yourselves of the site’s food shop or the offerings at the bar-restaurant – a cunning plan that should leave you with even more time for swims in the heated open-air pool, play time at the playground, ping pong table and games room or jaunts into the local area on foot or by bike. And if you’re here during the height of summer, you may well find sociable theme evenings on the schedule too (a handy way to get food and entertainment sorted at the same time…)

Electric optional grass pitch

Liked: A small family run campsite in a pretty area with magnificent views. The shower and toilet facilities were new and spotlessly clean. We visited at the end of the season and there were very few people there. There is a lovely pool on site and a small bar that serves pizza and bread for the morning - both looked lovely but we didn’t get chance to try them as we were only there for one night. We bought probably the best burger we’ve ever had from the bakers in the nearest village (Vollore-Ville) There is also a lovely little bar in the same square (Place de la Fontaine). We totally recommend this site and will be back. It would be nice to see it in Summer.

Disliked: Nothing

Liked: Stunning! What views, what views. Sunsets to die for. Only people on the site, which has large pitches and great swimming pool. Village in walking distance has great coffee and breakfast options. We had the best walks of the holiday with in 10min drive of the site.

Disliked: Quirky washrooms, seems to be all over the place.

#3 1 bedroom lodge (four person)

Liked: We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were made very welcome and the staff were always available and very friendly. The accommodations was perfect with the most beautiful views over the valley to Vollore-Ville. Vollore-Ville is a beautiful old town and well worth a visit. We are cyclists and the cycling is amazing, endless country roads to explore and all so beautiful. Highly recommend.

Electric optional grass pitch

Liked: Lovely family owned site with great walks on forest tracks especially good when it was so hot. The site is immaculate and kept to a very high standard. The pool looked lovely but unable to use due to water shortages. The owner, Michael was so kind as when we arrived we discovered a serious puncture. He immediately set to and fixed it! His knowledge and skill saved us a lot of trouble and cost. The site has a lovely little bar and restaurant where you can order lunch and supper. You can also order breakfast. It has a nice area for children. The walk into the village was pleasant and all uphill on the return. There is a bar/cafe and a grocery store in the village. The sun sets were stunning over Puy De Dome. It’s hilly so cycling would be challenging.

Disliked: Nothing - a bit of a tricky drive in but ok.

Liked: A beautiful campsite with amazing views. Friendly atmosphere! Large pitches, very clean facilities and wonderful pool. Great location to explore this vulcanic region of France.

Disliked: Wi-Fi didn’t work despite given the code and there being signal. 4G was fine though. Can not fault the site otherwise.

Local attractions

Want to get out and see some of those volcanoes up close? It’ll take you an hour or so to drive over to Puy-de-Dôme to wander about among the lava domes and cinder cones of the area’s youngest (but most famed) peak – or to take the easy route up on the railway if you’re not up for the climb. Any geology-based questions that crop up along the way should hopefully be answered in the exhibits at Vulcania theme park (an hour and 10 minutes' drive), and the mineral-packed waters that spring from the volcanic soil can be sampled (either as a drink or by sinking into warm thermal baths) in Vichy (an hour and five minutes). A little closer to home, it’s worth stopping in the pretty medieval town of Thiers (25 minutes) and taking a look at your local castle, the 12th-century Château de Vollore (five minutes/45 minutes on foot). For more rural times, aim for Lac d’Aubusson (10 minutes), where you can swim, fish or hire canoes and pedaloes.
