General

  • Peaceful six-hectare site a short drive from Lyon
  • Central lodge with TV, board games and books
  • Bar, seasonal restaurant, heated pool, solarium with deckchairs

Off to France's foodie capital? Loosen your belt and save your euros with a stay at this pretty site nearby: it's so lovely Lyon-centric that it's an info point for the city's tourist information centre.

The friendly and clued-up staff in reception can point you towards all the top things to see and do in this spectacular city (spoiler: there are many; spoiler two: food will be heavily involved), or you can use the free internet point to have a researchy gander for your own self; either way, you'll be able to access Lyon's many treats within a 20-minute drive.

Back, perhaps more heavily, at base, Camping de Lyon has laid on enough to keep guests amused in between city day trips. If you're around in the warmer months, the heated pool is open from mid-April until the end of September; there is of course a paddling pool too for small sorts, and deckchairs and parasols are available free of charge in the adjoining solarium.

Indoors and open all season is the comfy central lodge, where you can lounge about to watch telly, have a coffee, play board games or settle down with a book to learn more about this lush region. Or hang out in the bar, open every day for beers and wine, or at the café-restaurant (open in July and August and during May/June bank holiday weekends) for drinks on the terrace or eats such as salads, homemade pizzas and grills.

Camping de Lyon is set over six peaceful hectares, near the Rhône department commune of Dardilly (and, just so you know, within easy reach of the Beaujolais wine region and the Côtes du Rhône vineyards). It has a playground, ping pong tables and courts for volleyball and pétanque among its other leisure options, and toilets, showers and a laundry area with a washing machine among its amenities.

Order fresh bread and croissants at the bar to have pitchside the next morning – before another day of sightseeing and filling your boots just down the road in Lyon.

    Great location for overnight stop down to South of France. Reception staff extremely friendly and helpful.

    Disliked: 

    Small number of toilets for number of pitches and didn’t smell particularly fresh. Site looks very tired and needs some investment and tidying up in places.

    We liked the pool. We visited in mid September so the pool was empty, I imagine in the high season it may get a bit crowded! Friendly staff and quite a smart large site. Easy to find and on main arterial routes to north and south.

    The site looked “tired” and needed “freshening up”. Also, the plumbing for wasted disposal was not plumbed in correctly leading to human waste being deposited onto the ground.

Local attractions

Quite rightly, much of Lyon makes up a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site for its culture and archaeological heritage spanning over two thousand years, since it was founded around 43 BC towards the last days of the Roman Republic.

The UNESCO-listed areas of the city cover the designated Historic Site of the Roman district and Fourvière, the Vieux Lyon Renaissance district, the silk district of Croix-Rousse), and the architecture of the 12th century and onwards at the Presqu'île, the centre of Lyon from the foot of Croix Rousse hill to where the Rhône and the Saône rivers meet.

Also take time to see some of Lyon's several museums and galleries, including the famed Musée des beaux-arts de Lyon or fine arts museum, one of the biggest art galleries in France (and a must-visit); the new science and anthropology museum Musée des Confluences; the Musée des Automates museum of puppets, and one of the biggest collections of textiles in the world (two and a half million works) at the Musée des Tissus et des Arts décoratifs.

Wine from Beaujolais, fish from Savoy lakes, fruit and veg from Drôme and Ardèche, frogs from the Dombes and charcuterie, cochonnailles lyonnaises and pâté from the Lyonnais mountains all go towards making up the varied and famed cuisine of the city, using influences from the Mediterranean area in France's south and the Alsace and Lorraine regions in the north: Lyon has over a thousand eateries for you to sample its cuisine at its best.

And if (when) you need to work it all off? Tennis courts are a few hundred metres from the site, golf is available within four kilometres, and horse riding within six.
