What a lovely – and peaceful – lakeside locale… the Aveyron department's Camping La Romiguiere is in a serene setting far away from busy tourist resorts, in a wildlife haven where herons, otters, hawks and deer are all spottable, and near a lake for easy access to swimming, sailing and fishing as well as hiking, cycling and foraging in its surrounds.
This is a quiet and safe site, set between Laguiole and Estaing, and with good facilities for all ages including a seasonal pool, free internet and wifi, and a snack bar with a sunny terrace for coffees, web surfing and contemplating life. Pedalos and canoes are available to hire from the site team for when you're ready to get out onto the water.
Also on site are a pétanque court and a sports ground, a playground and a games room. The two toilet blocks have disabled access, unlimited hot water and family-friendly facilities.

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.

Coming from Paris:
On the A75 take the exit signposted Saint-Flour and follow the signs to Espalion/Rodez. Ignore the signs to Entraygues. In Laguiole continue on the D541 towards Soulages/Bonneval, then Touluch. After Touluch, continue towards Saint-Amans-des-Cots and turn left signposted La Romiguière. Follow the road to the lake.
Coming from Rodez:
Follow directions to Espalion, then take the D920 towards Estaing. In the village centre turn right towards Saint-Amans-des-Cots (D97). Drive through the Nayrac and follow signs to Barrage de la Selve (a dam). Continue for approximately 2km and turn right signposted La Romiguière. Follow the road through La Cappelle and continue along the lake up to the campsite.
Diving, waterskiing, jetskiing and fishing are easy to access from here, along with local hiking and cycling paths.
Camping La Romiguiere's nearest village is Laguiole, the Midi-Pyrénées commune famed for its knives as well as its AOC cheese devised by local monks in the nineteenth century. Tours of the forge are available at the knife factory, the most famed attraction in the village (you'll likely covet a Laguiole knife after this; if you want a collectors' one, have a thousand euros or so going spare).
Round and about, Espalion is 19km from Laguiole and Estaing 20. You could also get out to snap pics at the Cascade du Saut du Chien waterfall; the Château du Vallon and the ruins of Chateau de Thénières; spectacular Truyère valley, and Bez-Bedene, the high-up settlement above the Selves river.
Several regional markets are within driving distance, such as Sainte-Genevieve-sur-Argence 15 kilometres from Laguiole, Espalion at 19 kilometres, and the markets at Chaudes-Aigues, Entraygues and Mur-de-Barrez, all 23 kilometres from the village.
