General

  • Friendly riverside site 10 minutes' walk from medieval Ambialet
  • Peaceful site with spectacular river and forest views
  • Fishing, bike hire, swimming and canoe safaris all available

Before you read on, it’s a fine idea to peruse the pics of Camp Vallée Du Tarn. That hammock and those fishing spots – if you’re seeking a peaceful place to pass the day in the Midi-Pyrénées, either of those will do very nicely indeed, n’est-çe-pas?

Bring a stack of books and/or fishing kit and those choice spots could see you sorted for the duration if you wish. If, however, this small site’s spectacular river views have inspired you to see a bit more of the Tarn valley, this is a splendid place to base yourselves. Bike hire and canoe safaris can be had on site, wildlife walks are easily accessed in the surrounds, and it’s a leisurely 10-minute amble into the nearest village Ambialet (where there's a charging point for electric cars). Reception has plenty of info on local attractions; if you need further recommendations, ask the owners for their tips.

Life on site moves at a blissfully relaxed pace – friendly owners Erik and Monique maintain a book swap and wifi connection, and are happy for you to stoke up a barbecue or campfire for a lazy evening. They'll also sort you out with breakfast bits to get your day off to a tasty start, and host a communal dinner of barbecue food, pasta, fish, burgers and other dishes three times a week.

For foodie stock-ups, it's half an hour's drive to the supermarkets in St Juéry and Albi, and several local markets are close by: ask on site for details.

Please note

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

A wonderful campsite with friendly hosts - well worth a return visit!31/08/2020

  • Electric optional grass pitch (XL)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We were immediately greeted warmly by Erik and Monique, the hosts, who showed us the pitch and facilities (even encouraging our dog into the river before doing anything else....). There was plenty of flexibility for where we could pitch our tent. The campsite is in a stunning location, right on the banks of the River Tarn, and we were able to have a lovely swim with our Labrador! The village nearby is only a short stroll away, and very charming.
    The washing facilities were superb (the best we've seen), with toilet roll, soap, washing-up liquid and shower gel all provided.
    We met some lovely families who had returned to the site, having enjoyed it so much the previous year. We could certainly see why!

    Disliked: 

    This isn't a dislike, but it's worth noting that cards aren't accepted for payment (luckily we had cash on us) - it's mentioned in the booking process, but we hadn't read carefully enough.

From the manager...

Thanks! See you next time:)

    Quiet, campsite. On the bank of the Tarn. It has wow factor. Really excellent but hidden location. Toilets and showers were clean and looked recently decorated, plenty of hot water too.

    The hosts were extremely accommodating, and spoke English, Dutch and French - probably can do other languages too!!

    Fabulous location by the river Tarn, literally on its banks. Easy walk into Ambialet, an interesting and picturesque village. The tourist information office there has lots of walking and bike riding leaflets. We walked and biked everywhere - the riverside ride into Albi is beautiful. The owners are extremely attentive and do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable and hassle-free. The pitches are spacious and shady and the toilet and shower facilities are excellent. An absolutely lovely spot.

Directions


Local attractions

Pottering off to little villages is a popular way to spend some time around here. Once you’ve meandered around medieval Ambialet (10 minutes’ walk) and climbed up to its priory for some fab views, you might also like to check out the gorgeous Brousse-le-Château (half an hour away by car) or Coupiac (25 minutes), where the nippers can get dressed up to immerse themselves in medieval life at the château.

Albi half an hour away is another excellent place for a day out. Wander through the half-timbered streets and visit the cathedral if history’s your thing; those with an eye for culture and colour will want to drop in on the art museum filled with works by local lad Toulouse-Lautrec and maybe sashay through the fashion museum too.

Venture a little further to Gaillac (45 minutes) for days spent wandering among the wineries and vineyards, or head to the Haut-Languedoc Regional Natural Park (45 minutes) for hikes, wildlife watching and other active days.
