General

  • Near St. James's Way and the medieval village of Lamothe
  • Three kilometres from Brioude and 200 metres from the Allier river
  • Pool, paddling pool, snack bar and games room

Hikers, bikers and wildlife watchers: get your boots laced up, your cycling self ready and your keenest eagle-eyed expression prepped, for you can be doing the lot within minutes of leaving Auvergne's Camping La Bageasse.

A full 18 hiking trails are in the surroundings of this green site edged by valleys and hills, mountains and streams, along with nine cycling trails and access to the world-famed pilgrimage route of the St James's Way, a few kilometres away at the Basilica of St. Julien in Brioude. There's summer swimming and fishing of the Allier river within a couple of hundred metres too, or just dreamily wandering the riverbanks along as much as you fancy of the Allier's mighty 421 kilometres…

La Bageasse is in the Auvergne's Haute-Loire department, under 10 minutes' drive from the medieval village of Lamothe. It has loads of leisure options for your amusement for when you're not out hiking, cycling or boating: the site has a summer pool and paddling pool, free wifi, a playground, a pétanque court and a TV and games room. Regular entertainment runs in July and August, and a kids' club runs twice a week.

A snack bar is open in high season for quick and light bites. You can pick up groceries and local produce at the food shop, and at the Saturday morning market in Brioude.

    Ground was very hard. Need strong tent pegs

    Disliked: 

    Nothing going on. Disappointing to realise the on-site ‘bar,cafe,restaurant’ doesn’t exist, all I can think they are referring to is the bar next to the river that could be mistaken as part of the site however it is expensive (even happy hour is only 1 Euro off one cocktail! 🤔) we even casually asked our waitress on the first night what time the campsite reception closes, she said ‘I don’t know that’s nothing to do with us’

From the manager...

Dear Rebecca, thank you for sharing your opinion. There is a bar, cafe, restaurant next the river. The manager works for Aquadis Loisirs. You could have a drink and eat, so we're a little bit surprised by your comment...

    Camping agréable avec des gérants accueillants.
    Le cadre est idéal quand vous avez un chien, belle promenade autour du camping.
    La piscine est superbe et la rivière aussi.
    Manque un peu d'activités sur le camping.

    Le manque de respect des campeurs au niveau de la propreté laissée derrière eux.

Directions


Local attractions

On and off water, on land and way up in trees… adventuring of all sorts is easily accessed from here. There's wild swimming and fishing in the Allier river in July and August, boat trips within three kilometres, and rafting and kayaking within seven. Tennis, archery and rock climbing are all four kilometres away; a treetop adventure park, Parc Aventure Langeac, is half an hour's drive from the site.

Camping La Bageasse is three kilometres from the fab old town of Brioude, home of the also-fab Basilica of St. Julien, the biggest Christian church in Auvergne and a stopoff (or setting-out point) of the St James's Way (if you do desire to hike the rest of the path from here, it's only about 1,200 kilometres from Brioude to where the route winds up at Spain's Santiago de Compostela).

From Brioude, wander along the river and cross the bridge at Vieille-Brioude for handsome valley views, or drive the short distance to the pretty little town of Lavaudieu to the south east, on the Sanouire river. From nearby Langeac, take the spectacular tourist train journey through the Allier gorges to Langogne, or sort a horse ride through the surrounding landscape from the town tourist office.
