You will, of course, have heard of the pilgrimage site of Lourdes. And if you want a peaceful place at which to put your head down in the area (course you do, you're at Lourdes), you'll find it at Camping Le Vieux Berger, only two kilometres from the pilgrimage site and in a green and quiet natural setting. And do you know what else is peaceful? Getting to Lourdes via the regular Camping Le Vieux Berger shuttle bus, that's what.
Camping Le Vieux Berger has a shop, a snack shack, free wifi, a trampoline, a pétanque court and a games room. Bikes can be hired on site for a small fee – you'll likely think the surroundings here are heavenly.
The campsite's amenities blocks are basic but modern and are cleaned regularly. They have free hot showers, laundry rooms and facilities suited for guests with disabilities.
A swimming pool open to the public for a small charge is 800 metres from the site.

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.

Millions of people visit Lourdes every year, to see its Massabielle grotto, its caves and its castle: the town is second only to Paris in terms of annual visitor numbers and attracts visitors from all over the world. The Torchlight Marian Procession, held from spring to October, is the most famed thing to do for pilgrims who visit: join it each night near the main grotto.
The caves of Bétharram/ Grottes de Bétharram are another famed sight in the region and are a 20-minute drive from Camping Le Vieux Berger. Cave connoisseurs can explore them by boat, by train or by foot along the 2.8 underground walk: personally we rather fancy all three...
If you're a hiker type, get up to the top of the Pic du Jer for spectacular views over Lourdes, Pau, Tarbes, the Argelès-Gazost Valley and the Hautes-Pyrénées (you'll see the big cross lit up at the mountaintop if you're in the area at night). Not a hiker type? Take the Pic du Jer Funicular 950 metres up to pass over the mountain instead.
