View of the lake

General

  • Spectacular, friendly and spotless family-run mountain site
  • A 20-minute drive from Lourdes and 40 from Pont d'Espagne
  • Two mountain-view pools, and restaurant serving homemade dishes

‘A wonderful place to be’ and ‘would highly recommend’ are just a couple of comments about Camping du Lac which, you’d be right in guessing, lies right by a lake (or a reservoir, to be more accurate).

Family-run by the Peffabets (‘lovely’, ‘friendly’ and ‘helpful’) and a few minutes' walk from the little Pyrenean village of Arcizans-Avant in the Hautes-Pyrénées, this pristine place is surrounded by spectacular mountain peaks and spot on for visiting Lourdes, 20 minutes' drive away. Pont d'Espagne and Lac d'Guabe are 40 and 50 minutes from the site.

'Spectacular’ probably doesn’t quite cut it either when describing the surrounds, so it’s probably time to take a peek above and let the pics speak for themselves. Back? As you'll have seen there’s heaps of green and tree-filled space; a snack bar terrace; a shop with shelves filled to the gills with foodie bits; two pools, and outdoorsy and sporty options in the locale like river swimming and cycling.

After working up an appetite, head to the restaurant for homemade fare, for ‘the food was so good we had to eat there more than once,’ says one previous guest.

The spacing and landscaping of the pitches – some flat and some gently sloping, with high hedges and plentiful trees – means the site never feels crowded and you’ve always got plenty of space and privacy. The word ‘spotless’ crops up many a time in reviews of the amenities too – and with added extras like kid-sized sinks and a tiny toilet too, bathtime here might even be trouble-free…?

  • Liked: 

    Awesome location, very large pitches. Excellent shower and toilets, very clean. Small shop and cafe, fresh bread delivered daily with no need to reserve. Staff very friendly and coped with my lack of good French. Loaned us adapter to connect to electricity. Ice packs refrozen for a small fee. WiFi free and available at our pitch although stronger signal by the cafe. Swimming pools are supervised, the smaller, deeper one seemed to be slightly heated too, amazing views while sitting by the pool on one of the many loungers. Washing machines (€5) and dryers available as well as lots of space to hand wash if desired. Petanque pitch, volleyball and football goals in play area.

    We visited Lourdes, Pic de Jer, and Lac du Lorded beach which was brilliant on a very hot day. Also Pont d'Espagne and Lake Gaube. Cycling highlights accessible include Hautacam and Tourmalet.

    Loved this place

    Disliked: 

    Pitch was very worn as we were here towards the end of the season. Soap at the hand basins would have been appreciated.

  • Liked: 

    The camping was very well kept and had all the facilities you could ask for. We were a little early for the swimming pool so couldn't explore that facility.
    The restaurant on site and the shop run by a husband and wife team was excellent, all locally sourced food and drink. Mina was a great host.
    I would highly recommend anyone to visit this family run site. The family could not be more helpful or accommodating to us. Even our Labrador had the best time.

    Disliked: 

    Only improvement would be to put some hand sanitizer or soap dispensers in the toilets and have the lights turned on in the toliet cubicle at night.

Thank you so much for the 10/10 !!!

Zoals ter plaats aangegeven, is het belangrijkste compartiment verdeeld in vakken. Maar dat hebt u niet blijkbaar gezien.
Gelukkig is er meer dan één douche beschikbaar op onze camping ! Famille Peffabet Camping du Lac

Directions


Local attractions

As one expects from such a pristine mountain location, hiking and cycling options are all around. Col du Tourmalet, an hour and 20 minutes’ drive away, rises to a lofty 2,115 metres above sea level and is the highest paved mountain pass in the French Pyrenees – spot on for hardy bikeheads to whizz at speed around hairpin bends.

For a spectacular hiking spot not to be missed, take a trip an hour and 20 minutes by car to see the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Cirque de Gavarnie, for ambles among Pyrenean limestone circles formed by long-melted glaciers.

Also well worth a road trip is Pont d'Espagne, a smashing site in the Pyrenees National Park with vistas out over Vignemale, the highest of the French Pyrenean peaks. Elsewhere, visit the wide valley of Azun to reach the departure point for lots of highly scenic family hikes and walking tours.
