Simplicity, nature and family… these are the hallmarks of the family-friendly Camping Le Grun de Chignore site, in the Livradois-Forez Natural Park. Circled by forests and mountain summits, touch down at the foot of the mountains in this family-run wildlife haven in the characterful Auvergne village of Vollore-Ville. Friendly owners Laetitia and Jimmy will help you plot your route through forest trails in Ayguebonne or paths towards the sky into the mountains. Within 20 minutes’ drive of Thiers, this site welcomes families, including dogs, to hike or mountain bike their way around the natural park.
A slice of the countryside followed by a slice of homemade pizza… the on-site restaurant has an assortment of pizzas, mussels, fries, pierrade and fondues, if you haven’t already filled up at the on-site snack bar. Wash the food down with a drink from the on-site bar, or if you prefer to take care of your own food, get a barbecue going. And not forgetting the most important meal of the day – you can order breakfast to be delivered to your pitch every morning.
Handily, the local village of Vollore-Ville, 10 minutes’ walk away, has a food shop with more local products, a bakery and independent shops selling cheese, meat and soaps, for perusal too.
This site is well equipped to deal with the demands of a large family, as the playground and swimming pool will help kids blow off any extra steam. And for a bubbly end to the day, adults can look forward to the on-site Jacuzzi or discreet terrace. For lakeside lounging, head to the fishing lake on site stocked full of carp… see if you’ve got the knack for reeling them in. Challenge the family to a game of pétanque if you please or simply retire to TV room for a bit of downtime.
Open from 04/20/2021 to 10/17/2021
