Camping L'Orée des Cévennes is a small, charming, campsite ideally placed for discovering the Cévennes region, a mountain range in south central France. It is a particularly wonderful area for those who love nature, history, culture and outdoor activities.
It offers everything bigger campsites do, but without the associated disadvantages! Hedges and vegetation between pitches provide you with privacy and shade so that you can fully enjoy your stay here.
The campsite offers pool access (open in July and August), a tennis court, and a snack bar. There is also table tennis and gas barbecue grill available for general use. An information meeting is held at the restaurant every Sunday at 11am to discuss information about the surrounding region and to provide details about the sites of interest.
Whether you are looking for a pitch or a holiday home, we strive to meet your every need: our goal is to make your holiday enjoyable and a success. Enjoy your stay!

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.
