General

  • Peaceful site in rural Gard surroundings
  • A few kilometres' drive from Avignon
  • Bar, playground, TV room, communal barbecue facilities and shop

A peaceful green haven is, you might think, quite enough to fill your days with on a splendid break in rural France, but there's so much around this park’s excellent locale in the Gard department that you're really rather likely to want to get out and explore a bit.

As well as having a smashingly scenic site setting near the banks of the Rhône, the 2.5 hectares of La Laune is a kilometre from the centre of Villeneuve-lès-Avignon, four kilometres from the festivals and UNESCO-listed sights of Avignon, 15 minutes’ walk from the 14th-century Fort Saint André and right next to a skate park, tennis courts and a public pool.

The on-site shop is well-stocked with whatever groceries you might need, and the communal barbecue is a good spot for relaxing outside with a burger or three before heading to the bar for a nice cold beer; if you’re organised enough you can order bread the day before to have delivered from 8am, just in time for brekkie – otherwise, there are plenty of nice eateries over in nearby Villeneuve and Avignon to work your way through.

The site is served by a bus service that takes you direct into Avignon in a speedy 15 minutes – a similar time will get you there if you whizz there on two wheels (what a lovely way to see the city’s sights), and if you’re on foot it’ll take you about 50 minutes.

Guests are usually well impressed by the size of La Laune’s spacious and well shaded pitches, and the the sparkling sanitary block comes highly rated too. A wifi service is available at reception or in the bar.

There’s a playground on site for swinging, sliding and clambering, and for rainy days (though it’s doubtful you’ll have many of those), the TV room’s got your entertainment sorted. For fun off site, a skate park and tennis courts are a short walk away, and the public pool provides La Laune guests with one complementary visit during their stay.

Wonderful with an unfortunate glitch. 19/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    Very friendly staff. Excellent large pitches with easy ground to pitch - no bent pegs.
    On edge of beautiful village, stunning view of neighbouring castle. Very handy for Avignon.
    Generally quiet and very peaceful during the day.

    Disliked: 

    Through no fault of campsite, we were disturbed until small hours a few times by a concert and discos nearby. Such a shame. Otherwise would rate as 5.

  • Liked: 

    Location is fantastic- managed to walk from campsite to Avignon.

    Quiet and relaxed atmosphere.

    Staff were all very friendly and spoke to us in our preferred language.

    If you are active there is a swimming pool, football pitches and an athletics track meters away from the site.

    Disliked: 

    Although clean overall the shower ceiling was covered in cobwebs and spiders. It would of taken an hour or so to brush/hoover the entire ceiling.

Die französisch und gut englisch sprechende Rezeption hat uns schon ... 03/08/2017

Reviewer's country: Germany Stephan S. Confirmed

  • Electric optional mixed pitch

  • Liked: 

    Die französisch und gut englisch sprechende Rezeption hat uns schon beim Eintreffen sehr gefallen, war immer zuvorkommend, freundlich und hilfsbereit.
    Die Stellplätze sind eben, ausreichend groß und von sonnig bis vollständig von hohen Bäumen beschattet findet hier jeder seinen "Lieblingsplatz".
    Die Anbindung nach Avignon ist per Bus oder kostenfreies Park & Ride (der Parkplatz ist ca. 4 Autominuten vom Campingplatz entfernt, die P&R Busse fahren sehr oft - danke der Rezeption für diesen Tipp) perfekt gegeben.
    Das direkt am Platz angrenzende städtische Freibad (nagelneu) kann kostenlos genutzt werden - Karten dazu gibt es an der Rezeption des Campingplatzes.

    Tipps:
    - das Frühstücksbaguette und die Croissants am Abend für den nächsten Morgen vorbestellen (sonst gibt es Müsli)
    - bei absehbarer Rückkehr nach 20:00 Uhr vorher einen Schlüssel für das Tor holen

    Disliked: 

    Die Waschhäuser sind in Ordnung und sauber. Eine Renovierung wäre dem insgesamt sehr positivem Gesamteindruck zuträglich.
    Die Zikaden waren tagsüber laut, in der Nacht und am Morgen aber still.

Camping calme et ombragé, proche du centre d'Avignon, à recommander. 02/08/2017

Reviewer's country: France Irène F. Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    Un camping calme et ombragé, à 20 minutes à vélo du centre d'Avignon : très appréciable en temps de festival ! Emplacements plats et relativement spacieux. Douches vastes et bien chaudes. Personnel sympathique et serviable. Un rapport qualité/prix très intéressant.

    Disliked: 

    Un bémol : propreté et approvisionnement en papier toilette ont laissé à désirer le dimanche.
    La piscine est gratuite mais à l'extérieur du camping.

Directions


Local attractions

A tennis court, a skate park and a public pool lie right next to the park, and the 14th-century medieval ruin of Fort Saint André is a short walk away.

Cross over Pont d’Avignon and you’ll be met with a rather impressive array of ecclesiastical architecture, most notably the soaring UNESCO–listed palatial fortress, the Palais des Papes. If you’re there at the right time of year, you’ll get to be a part of Avignon’s annual arts festival – the largest of its kind in France – and the rest of the year you’ve got heaps of boutique-lined avenues, shaded squares, cafe terraces and splendid restaurants to explore.

If you’re partial to a bag of Haribo every now and again, then you’ll be very chuffed to hear that the Haribo Sweet Museum over in Uzès is a short drive away, as are the Cévennes mountains for horse riding, walking and cycling.
