The team at Mas de Champel say it's got something for everyone, and once you clap eyes on this place you might reckon they might be right. For among the many (many) things on offer here at this Ardèche site off the tourist track and next to a natural park in France's Rhône-Alpes are many (many) things to do for kids – and as you also might reckon, happy kids = happy grownups.
The owners have children of their own, are very au fait with what small sorts and families like to do on holiday, and have set up the site accordingly: at Mas de Champel excited enfants will find a paddling pool, a big pool, a sandy beach next to a river on which to build competitive castles, loads of space for playing, running around or riding their bikes... And if this doesn't keep them busy enough, ages four to ten can find all sorts of new activities at the kids' club.
Elsewhere on site – they did say they've got something for everyone – grownup guests could swim in the river, laze in the pool or on the beach, tackle some fishing, or try cycling, pétanque tournaments, table tennis or volleyball. If you're after even more of a treat? A spa and fitness area with hot tub and sauna is on site too.

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.

Once you're finally off site, there's something for everyone in the countryside surrounding Mas de Champel too. This is away from the mainstream tourist area of the Rhône-Alpes, in splendidly scenic countryside with pure air and a warm Mediterranean climate, and in an area of the central Ardèche known for its lovely landscapes and peaceful way of life with traditional rural values. If you want old-fashioned France, c'est ici...
All around the area are wild swimming spots, climbing places, clifftop villages, nature and wildlife, and hiking tracks with viewpoints you'll want to frame... Take time too for the medieval village of Chalençon and the village of Beauchastel, both 15km away, and the Ray Pic waterfall and Mont Gerbier-de-Jonc, both within 45 minutes.
Also nearby, if you're around in June, L’Ardéchoise is the biggest mass bike race in Europe and wheely worth a watch; at any time of the year, find some time to hang around Aquarock Adventure's ropes, rocks and rivers in the Eyrieux Valley.
