General

  • Spacious family site near Orgon in the Alpilles Regional Natural Park
  • Within an hour's drive of Marseille, Avignon and Aix-en-Provence
  • Outdoor pool on site and swimming lake a short walk away

In a place called the Happy Valley, and accessed via the Sunshine Motorway… that’s got to be a combo that raises a smile.

Camping La Vallée Heureuse is a pleasingly spacious nine-hectare family-oriented site five minutes’ drive from Orgon, and a similarly short hop from the aforementioned A7 motorway (handy news for those seeking a convenient stopover when heading north or south).

Don’t plan to move on too quickly though, for there’s much to detain you around these parts for a little while: just a couple of minutes’ walk away is a lake for walks and watersports, and the Durance river runs nearby too. The site is in the scenic surrounds of the Alpilles Regional Natural Park for outdoorsy pursuits, with Avignon, Marseille and Aix-en-Provence all less than an hour away for time in town.

Time on site is well spent too – have a swim at the outdoor pool, play pétanque or table tennis or snaffle a shaded spot from which to gaze out over the gorgeous views. A pizzeria, bread order service and a bar with ice cream provide plenty of bits to snack on, and there’s a programme of activities and entertainment for all ages in the summer months.

    Beautiful surroundings, couldn’t ask for a better setting. well looked after toilet and shower facilities, very clean and tidy. Staff at reception were very helpful with regards of how to get around, we were given train timetables to get to Marseille. Lots of information available. We did have a pizza from the bar one night and it was very nice.

    Disliked: 

    The swimming pool was supposed to open at 10am but the first day we were there it didn’t open til 11.30, because the man forgot? The same thing then happened on our second day. The bottom of the pool was filthy, obviously not been cleaned for a few days.
    The pool was busy all day, but the bar/restaurant was closed. It didn’t open til 6 when everyone had gone? Didn’t make sense. Only had wine or beer and only serve pizzas. Just wasn’t very impressed.

From the manager...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for sharing your experience. We are sorry for the inconvenience you met during your holidays.

We are considering your comment to improve our services for next season. Indeed, the restaurant is a pizzeria and is opened only the evening. During the day you can have a drink to the bar near the reception desk. You can find also a small shop offering local products or essential and basics products.

Kind regards

Chers Clients,

Merci de partager votre expérience.

C'est régulièrement tout le sud de la France qui connait, avec les fortes chaleurs et les pluies, un développement important de moustiques.
L'utilisation de répulsifs est conseillée.

Au plaisir de vous recevoir de nouveau en 2019 !

Personeel was vriendelijk en sprak goed Engels. 21/08/2018

    We hadden gevraagd om een rustige en zonnige plek. Deze hadden we ook gekregen: we stonden iets verder bij het toiletgebruik en zwembad vandaag. Het contact met de medewerkers was prima; we kwamen laat aan en konden gewoon nog inchecken. Ondanks de drukte hadden we een staanplaats met vrij veel privacy. De pizza’s waren boven verwachting. Het is een prima uitvalsbasis om grotere steden te bezoeken en ook genoeg kleinere dorpen met marktjes e.d. te vinden. Neem stevige haringen mee, het is er erg rostachtig.

    Disliked: 

    Ondanks dat ze meerdere keren per dag de toiletgebouwen schoon houden vonden we de toiletten en de douches niet schoon. De spinnenwebben in de hoekjes zou je zo mee kunnen nemen met schoonmaken. Het wc-papier was vaak later op de dag op en ook in de ochtend moest je goed zoeken naar toiletpapier. Er is zeep aanwezig, maar na een week werd het vervangen door iets wat aangelegd leek te zijn. Het personeel in het restaurant leek niet heel enthousiast en het duurde vaak lang. De muziek (bands) stond keihard; als je kritisch bent qua muzieksmaak dan is dit niet fijn in een vallei! De plek die wij hadden was niet vlak; dit vergt enige creatieve aanpassingen!

Directions


Local attractions

The surrounds of the Alpilles Regional Natural Park have much to explore – walks, bike rides and horseback treks are popular ways to take in the rocky vistas, vineyards and olive groves. For some completely different (but equally scenic) walks and activities, drive for 45 minutes or so to the wetlands of the Camargue Regional Natural Park.

Delve into the region’s past with visits to some of its historic sites: the riverside medieval fortess Château de Tarascon and the Bronze Age village of bories in Gordes are both around 40 minutes away by car, and the Saint Paul de Mausole monastery (where Vincent Van Gogh painted some of his most famed works) is around 20 minutes away.

Should you fancy wandering around town for a while, it’ll take you around half an hour to reach Avignon for museums, UNESCO-listed sites and excellent wine cellars (Châteauneuf-du-Pape is nearby, for starters). Marseille and Aix-en-Provence are both less than an hour away by car.
