General

  • Family-friendly campsite two kilometres from Arles
  • Beach, heated pool, paddling pool and three-lane waterslide
  • Shaded play area, bar, restaurant and bike hire

A big and friendly family park, only two kilometres from the smashing sights of old Roman town Arles – and the facilities (and scenery) are pretty splendid too: have a hol at Camping L'Arlesienne, in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur's department of Bouches-du-Rhône.

The names of the games here are getting relaxed and getting entertained: guests can take their pick from basking at the large beach or soaking/splashing at the heated pool and paddling pool, open from mid-May to the end of September and surrounded by sun loungers and parasols to soak up Mediterranean sun.

Kids have a shaded play area with a slide, boules court, ping pong and table football; all ages can bop along to the high season evening entertainment and theme evenings with meals twice weekly, and there's also a bar and restaurant open from June to September for leisurely drinks and/or dining on the terrace overlooking the pool. (Peckish in between meals? Order sandwiches, pizza, salads or chips from the snack bar to eat in or take away.)

Camping L'Arlesienne has bathrooms heated during the cooler months, washing machines and a small shop selling bread, pastries and ice cream. Bike hire is available in July and August.

Shops are in a large centre about a kilometre from the campsite; to get into Arles, catch the bus into town from the stop 200 metres away.

Only OK. 12/08/2017

Reviewer's country: New Zealand carol_l204399 Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    It was easy to find using the GPS. The pitch was fairly level. The pool was great with deck chairs provided, and the water slide was excellent. The old town was very nice and interesting. Even although it was the height of the summer holidays the camp ground was surprisingly quiet and probably only about 1/3 full which for us, was great. Toilet facilities were good and clean.

    Disliked: 

    Wi fi only available around the pool and it isn't fast. Not much to do in the area - we had bikes so were able to ride into the old town which isn't far away and have a look around. It would be quite boring if you don't have your own transport to get to the town.

Wouldn't recommend. 07/08/2017

    Pitches were well marked.

    Disliked: 

    The modern sanitary block was ok but only had two showers. The other block was dirty and unpleasant. It was by the swimming pool so got a lot of traffic. It was a long way from any shops and there was no shop on site. There was no shade apart from the cafe area. The pool also had no shade. No drinking water that I could see and no soap in any of the toilets. Not set up for tents let alone when you are cycling. Take mosquito repellent!! Staff were helpful; however they had an exceptionally long siesta. We arrived just as it started so had no access to drinks as there was no drinking water tap that we could see. We moved to a cheap hotel. It had soap in the toilet!!!

Directions


From Paris/Lyon/Avignon:
In Avignon follow the signs for Marseille and take the exit for Avignon Sud. Follow the signs for Chateaurenard, and then for Tarascon and Arles. From Arles, follow the signs for Salon de Provence/Saintes Maries de la Mer (crossing several roundabouts on the way) until you reach the Arcades roundabout (easily identifiable by the piece of Roman aqueduct on display in the centre). From here, take the exit for Raphèle/Pont de Crau three-quarters of the way round the roundabout, and then turn right at the next roundabout about 500 metres away.

From Marseille, Salon de Provence, Nîmes, Montpellier:
Take the motorway A54 and stay on the 113 road before coming off at the Exit 7 for Arles (Beaucaire /Point de Crau). You will arrive at the Arcades roundabout (easily identifiable by the piece of Roman aqueduct on display in the centre). From here take the first road on your right and follow the signs for Raphèle/Pont de Crau. From this roundabout it is 500 metres to the campsite. Continue up the hill to the next roundabout and keep right. Follow signs for 'Raphèle'. 10 metres after passing the irrigation canal you will see the campsite on your right.

Local attractions

Camping L'Arlesienne's local city of Arles is so pretty it was the place that inspired many a painting of one Mr V van Gogh, and is now a place of events and activities, exhibitions and festivals and quite a few colourful Provençal markets.

As well as this, Arles is one of the most famed places in Europe for Roman remains, so trot along to see its amphitheatre and the Arles Obelisk among many other ancient sights; the Roman remnants of Arles have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1981.

Also around the area are many top picks for walking, fishing and horse riding, with tennis courts and golf courses nearby, and local beaches like La Grande Motte or Saintes Maries de la Mer. Both these are in the Camargue area, a wildlife haven filled with opps for birdwatching and nature spotting: look out for the flamingoes and the wild horses.

You'll also be within easy reach from Camping L'Arlesienne of Nîmes, Avignon, Les Baux de Provence, Les Alpilles mountains and the ancient walled town of Aigue-Mortes.
