General

  • Family-friendly site with direct access to the Lot river
  • Within an hour of Bozouls canyon, Gorges du Tarn and Millau Viaduct
  • Heated pool and water slide; bar and restaurant; summer kids' club

Say a very loud Oui to adventures in the Aveyron from a base at Marmotel, where you can surely pass many a day in sleepy and mellow marmot-style...

This fab and family-friendly site by the Lot river is just the ticket for idle and contented days: basking by or in the heated swimming pool, trotting across to the bar for drinks and snacks, or feasting on pizzas and local dishes in the restaurant should keep you serenely occupied for quite some time... or might you prefer to wandering down to the river for fishing, paddling and perhaps a quick 40 winks on the banks...?

The site is a couple of minutes’ walk from the small town of Saint Geniez d’Olt and its grand arched bridge spanning the river (and a statue of a marmot... if you were wondering about the name), as well as a decent spread of bars, bakeries and shops around the town. If you’re taking the marmot lifestyle seriously, though, you can pick up your bread and pastries on site and save your energy for swims and snoozing.

For those of more energetic disposition, activities like fitness classes, water polo and tennis tournaments and pony rides are arranged in the summer months. The action doesn’t slack off after dark either, with quiz nights, karaoke and dancing for the night owls.

A summer kids’ club organises games, shows and competitions for the smaller visitors, and in between there’s slithering down the waterslide, splashing in the paddling pool and hurtling around the playground.

  • Liked: 

    Premium pitch with a little cabin with shower, toilet, sink, wash up area - was very clean and a great idea. Pool was large and slides fun. Location near St Geniez-d’Olt d’olt was ideal - short walk to town through a park with the resident Marmot. Bar and restaurant were both fine. Onsite laundry was useful. As was hire of a fridge. Staff very helpful though English wasn’t spoken that much (which I actually liked). Riverside location was good for the children trying to catch fish, building dams, playing in the inflatable canoe.

    Disliked: 

    Agree with other review that drive in through the industrial estate wasn’t ideal but you did get to go past the brewery shop! Also agree maintenance of hedges could have been better as pitches were quite tight to drive into. Pool really does need some umbrellas for shade. There is a shady area amongst the trees but you can’t oversee your children in the pool from there.

    location was super next to saint Geniez d'olt . easy walk to village, pitches a good size

    Disliked: 

    Drive into the campsite feels that you are going to work on the industrial site, road worn out.
    Poor maintainance , hedges etc not cut back making getting into the pitches from drive tight.
    signage poor all faded worn out or not there. Swimmingpool depth signs around the pool , missing or broken off. building require painting etc. Toilet facilities for the bottom campsite poor, 2 toilets for each sex, no showers and 2 washbasins for both.
    Lighting : a lot didn't work, new bulb or more required.

    L'emplacement où nous nous trouvions (ombragé et grand) avec des robinet proche de chaque emplacements, le voisinage, le site sur lequel se trouve le camping, (rivière, magasin et pleins de site magnifique à visiter à proximité). Les sanitaires toujours très propres et avec du PWC, la piscine est aussi très bien malgré qu'elle soit bien trouble en fin de journée. Personnel très souriant et toujours sympathique.

    Disliked: 

    Le service extrêmement lent au bar, les animations pour le mini club n'ont pas su charmer mes enfants de tout âges pourtant (5ans, 8ans et 11ans), et j'ai trouvé un peut trop de laisser aller à la piscine (les serviettes laissés sur les transats alors que les propriétaires de celles ci ne sont pas là mais aussi les shorts portaient toute la journée et lavé dans la piscine en fin de journée). Les conteneur à poubelles qui sont loin.

    Être à côté du Lot, les patrons du camping qui sont très sympathiques. Les pizzas et les frites sont bonnes
    Être à côté d un centre équestre
    Accessibilité au village et au supermarché à pieds.
    Plein de sites à visiter à proximité

    Disliked: 

    Je trouve que les sanitaires individuels sont sommaires.
    La piscine non surveillée et accessible à tous même aux gens du village qui viennent se baigner gratuitement...
    Animations pour les enfants pas sensationnelles, jeux pour les enfants trop excentrés du camping.

Directions


Local attractions

With direct access to the Lot, watery activities will loom large on your agenda: you can hire canoes and kayaks a couple of minutes’ walk from the site, or if you’re up for grander expeditions, make the hour-long car trip to Malène to paddle through the towering Gorges du Tarn.

With an equestrian centre in town, a vertigo-inducing combination of zipwires and rope walks at Les Ifers, and quad bike hire and trails at Le Monastère (10 and 50 minutes’ drive), there’s a variety of ways to get about this great region. If you'd prefer to keep it simple, the tourist information centre in town can furnish you with a guide to the 24 hiking trails in the area; if you’re after longer treks, try the wilderness of Bozouls canyon half an hour away, or meanders around and under massive Millau Viaduct (45 minutes).

Gourmets and gastronomes can combine walking trips with tasty treats on tours of the Cistercian abbey and chocolate factory at Bonneval, or heading deep down into the Roquefort caves (45 minutes and an hour and 10 minutes away). Purchasing the cheesy and chocolately wares is not compulsory at either spot, but then again… why would you not.
