It was late in the season and we were pleased with the quiet emplacement. Excellent swimming pool once we found the entrance. Well placed site for exploring the ardeche.
Karin from West Sussex (29 September 2015)

Great parc, which enjoys a perfect location with a river beach and close to the beautiful ardeche. Canoeing trip is a must to see the gorges! the parc has superb facilities,and something for everyone. Excellent pool complex, wellbeing and spa centra. Free tennis ct, ball park area, volleyball, lots of ping-pong tables, and play areas. Restaurant is good. If I had a criticism, it would be that some of the emplacements are not as spacious as other french sites, but they still enjoy private space and in no way did this detract from out enjoyment of a superb holiday.
Jane (12 September 2015)

Great holiday, great weather, excellent parc
Hewitt from Goxhill (01 September 2015)

This parc was not really to our taste but we were unable to book the site we wanted because we only wanted to stay for 5 nights and we were told that when we phoned that that 7 nights was what was required.
Jean from Malvern (31 August 2015)

Great site in a fabulous part of france. Highly recommended.
Gayle from Basingstoke (31 August 2015)

Nicely updated iver last few years
Michael (31 August 2015)

We had a lovely holiday, the parc was a great location, lovely pool and facilities. But thought our mobile home was very tired. The seat covers were very grubby and bits were missing from the kitchen units. The shower wouldn't drain and the toilet always smelt of urine even once I had cleaned it. Would recommend the parc but thought cravans of rival companies looked a lot smarter. .
Dr from St Albians (29 August 2015)

We have had a utterly fantastic holiday and were very sad to leave. The area was beautiful, stunning scenery and wonderful medieval towns. We were lucky enough to canoe the ardèche through the vallon pont arc which was a brilliant experience. The site was lovely, well kept and the pool was lovely without ever feeling overcrowded. The eurocamp reps were helpful, always on hand but never overpowering. Thankyou x
Rachel from Yate, Bristol (29 August 2015)

Great holiday, beautiful area, fantastic accommodation. parc was a bit large/noisy for us but our accommodation was private. disappointed in lack of cycle paths promised in brochure.
Sarah from Bath (29 August 2015)

We went to this parc in august with our two teenage children aged 17 & 18. We all loved the holiday, the size of the parc, the river running alongside and general stunning scenery and our aspect accommodation.
Andy from Rickmansworth (28 August 2015)

Good family holiday for 3 generations. annoying that eurocamp did not allow us to book both groups (14 people in total) together and did not have us in adjacent plots but the courriers were very helpful in sorting this out after the first few days. why couldn't eurocamp central do this in the first place?
Stanley (26 August 2015)

Thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in the ardeche. the area is very pretty and there are plenty of activities to take part in if you are so inclined. we canoed down the ardeche river, took part in a cycling tour from the campsite with a eurocamp lifecycle guide, did the french equivalent to go ape in a forest just across from the campsite. we visited caves, swam and paddled in the river, played tennis and table tennis on site and still had plenty of relaxation time on the lovely deck that fronted our accommodation and round the great pool are on the campsite. would definitely recommend the area and the campsite.
Debra from Ely (24 August 2015)

Great camp but poor restaurant/food
Melanie from Leicester (18 August 2015)

The couriers were pretty much hopeless, never got any real welcome ( not like we have done in the past) , given a key shown caravan and 2 minutes in the to say sorry I might have not turned on the fridge you find the button in the bedroom. We were on holiday with our daughter in another van and they had lots of problems with the aircon , microwave etc and couriers were not really interested one night we smelt gas in their van and we called the courier , they came and walked in listen near boiler and said I cannot hear a gas leak so all should be ok , go to bed and we shall get someone to look at it tomorrow ! , well we went rather bad , our grand kids were in that van and we insisted they called an engineer out, the courier a girl said I do not speak french ! so will have to find someone who does ! 30 minutes later returned with another rep who took a look and we had to explain again that with kids we can taking no chances , they called the engineer eventually . not a good experience.
Jon from Bathgate (15 August 2015)

A really lovely parc and location. Real dissapointment was that the reason we chose the parc was because of the availability of a gym, for our son who has to train fairly intensly for his rowing commitments. We discovered upon arrival that the gym that was pictured in the brochure and I think mentioned on line - though can't be totally sure had been closed and turned into a spa. This was very poor misrepresentation and put back his training significantly.
Clare (08 August 2015)

The couriers were great and helpful even when off duty. The site was excellent and catered for our needs. Excursions were brilliantly run. Caravan was clean and as expected.
Amanda from Colchester (07 August 2015)

This was our first visit to the ardeche and I would thoroughly recommend both the area and this park. We have travelled with eurocamp many times and had the usual ant killer and mosquito repellent packed but neither were needed! we paid for an aspect and it was well worth the extra money. It was clean, spacious and away from the traffic of the park, however only a short walk from the swimming pool and bar. When we arrived there were very few english families and I really liked that, more arrived later on but it was very quiet.i have older children and we travelled with friends including a one year old and there was plenty to do for all ages. The swimming pool complex lacked shade and we did sometimes need that but the bar was a very good excuse! the animation team worked their socks off and everyone got involved. My one reservation was the lack of bbq areas. We were told you could not take a gas bbq but all the tourers had their own and I was very tempted to order one from amazon and have it delivered so we could have a decent bbq! . looking for next year and this is high on my list!
Kate from Colchester (07 August 2015)

Excellent site in a beautiful part of france
Neil from Redditch (07 August 2015)

Would recommend to others as lots to do for all ages. Great to have the river close by
David from Stockport (06 August 2015)

The parc was very cramped, the pool was overcrowded and only had 2 slides so wasn't a very exciting environment and the single restaurant was really poor service. For example all the meals came out at different times and the staff seemed to care mores out having a laugh together than being attentive in any way. It basically seemed like the staff didn't enjoy their jobs. Also expensive. Bbq,s were communal and difficult to get access to. Entertainment was okay but mostly in french as this park is largely over run with french and netherlands visitors. A long way to travel for a very crushed and busy park.
Ben from Bristol (06 August 2015)

This is a fab parc with brilliant facilities on site. Good location for valon pont d'arc and all it offers. Caves were fantastic but do book in advance for the cave paintings. Canoe/kayak brilliant but very busy going under the arc of course. Some capsizing going on! beautiful area.
Gavin from Glos (05 August 2015)

A great holiday on a fantastic parc.
Shelagh from Ossett (03 August 2015)

Overall great holiday at this parc, would definitely recommend. . . evening entertainment was good and the kids loved it. Pools were really good, only point on that is that the life guards need to be more proactive when monitoring the slides.
Andre from Wiltshire (31 July 2015)

A horrendously cramped site where the caravans are packed in like sardines. We paid for a vista model with 2 sets od opening double doors, however we could only open one as we had a tree coming out through our decking preventing the second doors from opening properly. This also totally shaded our decking and made the table very dirty. Not a lot of space for children to play and my daughter aged 9 actually had stones thrown in her face by an older dutch boy for wanting to play in the park. The only plus side was that the security team did sort this out. We found the staff very rude, waited 40 mins to get a drink at the restaurant in a five star site despite french people coming in after us and being served immediately! we even speak some french ourselves and always make an effort too. Other customers were very rude but probably because too many people crammed into a small space. The shop was poorly stocked. The pools could be good however the was the usual sunbed war, the lifeguards do remove towels if theyre not used which is fair enough but I didn't expect other customers to if you went in the pool for 10mins! no food or drinks were permitted at the pool so it was a struggle to eat / drink and we had to go separately. No barbeques were permitted at the caravans either as theyre all so close together. We have been to many eurocamp sites and this is by far the worst ever.
Gill from Newcastle-Upon-Tyne (25 July 2015)

Stayed in the new aspect cabins and was really impressed- spacious and well equipped with a fantastic deck area. The site was excellent, really clean and well run. Really enjoyed it and would definitely return.
Kirsty (19 July 2015)

Excellent campsite. Great pool complex, easy access to river, well-stocked campsite shop, good variety of entertainment throughout the 2 weeks.
Lynda from Aberlady (18 July 2015)

We had a fantastic time at this campsite but would never go again and not book air conditioning !!! just too hot without it.
Siobhan from London (17 July 2015)

Park was nice, pool complex very good for the kids. The location of the vans was also very good. The aspect vans are very good, but they still have a few issues with them, which knocked the overall score down a little. . overall, very good location and amenities from the park
Peter from Glasgow (11 July 2015)

A return visit to a well remembered parc. Many interesting places to see and things to do.
Neil from Beverley (28 June 2015)

This is a large parc with one of the best pool complexes I have ever seen. The parc is in the perfect location to explore the ardeche region and all it has to offer; lovely old french towns with markets each day to entice you. . this area gets hot in season but the parc has a lot of trees which provide shade - and also a lot of noise from the 'cigalis'- (crickets). the river is just a hundred yards away - lovely and clean to swim in but the 'beach' is actually large pebbles and stones so difficult to walk upon. There are plenty of other proper beach areas on the ardeche though - and a perfect one under the pont d'arc in the gorges d'ardeche - the french grand canyon. A 'must do road' for any motorcyclist.
Ailsa from Braunton (27 June 2015)

Very good facilities. good location. Would recommend
Paul from Guildford (26 June 2015)

Overall we had a lovely holiday, the area was great, we love france, the weather was good and the campsites had good facilities
Ian (23 June 2015)

Initial mobile badly positioned and although overall it was clean, the kitchen work area was infested with ants which had been sprayed with residual toxic poisonous ant killer. No other similar vans were available. We were offered alternative upgraded mobiles but had to move again halfway through the holiday. The team leader did his best to overcome his initial action of spraying poison. The last mobile, the aspect was very comfortable.
Roderick from Emsworth (21 June 2015)

A great park in a great location. All you could want really.
Bryan from Salisbury (12 June 2015)

Camp is in excellent position for easy access to most of th ardeche attractions - only a couple of miles down the road before you begin to enjoy the sights
Leslie from Hartlepool (10 June 2015)

A great place with a fantastic location.
Lewis from Ely (31 May 2015)

Great fun. Lovely park. Great part of france to be in.
Stuart from Northampton (31 May 2015)

Beautiful location, extremely helpful and knowledgeable couriers. clean accommodation with a great outside space. eurocamp check in not correctly signposted, which led to a little confusion at the main reception. unfortunately the on camp site shop was only open 8-12 which created an issue for us after arriving at 12. we were directed to another store in the main village but we were settled. which led us to enjoy a lovely meal at the restaurant so all was ok in the end!
Joanne from Biggleswade (30 May 2015)

Lovely site but wifi did not work, major let down and why I booked the site,
Mark from Eastbourne (11 September 2014)

Nice park with good pool facilities, especially for children, in a lovely area.
Emily (09 September 2014)

As always had a fab time, relaxed and weather was great
Sharon from Leamington Spa (06 September 2014)

Great, fun holiday in a stunning location.
Jo from Ipswich (31 August 2014)

A busy parc, which was great for the kids but was too noisy at night.
Customer 43 (31 August 2014)

A good holiday in lively park which was action packed.
Geraldine from Winchester (29 August 2014)

A great campsite with nice clean facilities and lots of things for the children to do. The campsite is very well located within the ardeche. The climate was great with warm sunny days of 27c+ and cooler nights. We would visit this site again.
Jeanette from Ashbourne, Derbyshire. (29 August 2014)

A busy site during holiday season with lots going on, quieter in early september. Wonderful pool complex for all ages. Restaurant on site served great food. Close to lots of local attractions and activities. Some beautiful old villaages nearby.
Andrew from Cardiff (28 August 2014)

Overall we had a great holiday here. The ardeche is so lovely and great for an active family holiday.
Kath (28 August 2014)

The vista caravans could do with more lounge area and third bedroom a bit too compact. ardeche is beautiful. site is beautiful although better signage from eurocamp would be beneficial. it would have been useful if the take away on site was open later also. when it comes to entertainment loved foam party and guitar players. had a great holiday. Also take couple of bed sheet as eurocamp provide blankets so don't need anything else - this will save you quite a bit of money if there are 6/7 of you. take a kettle as they only provide one for the hob which took some time to boil. we also took adaptor sand extension in order to plug in our numerous phones and lap tops and kindles as vista has very few sockets.
Nadine from Hull (25 August 2014)

Great holiday could have been better in some areas
Hilary (25 August 2014)

Good family holiday but proved a bit too far for our 10 year old. Only there 4nights so maybe should have stayed a bit longer. Had a stopover there and back then went on to holland.
Julie from Hull (24 August 2014)

A great site, good facilities and a wonderful river
Simon from Leicester (23 August 2014)

Overall an enjoyable holiday, with good cmp facilities.
Andrew (23 August 2014)

A great holiday. just thought some things looked a little tired in the caravan. our pull out double bed in the living area was broken, although temporary fix carried out efficiently. bedding and towels not right on arrival although quickly sorted. lightbulbs said checked and working but weren't. one bulb wasn't even in the socket. parasol worked ok but rusty and looked tired. one of plastic chairs had a crack in the seat. Eurocamp not a cheap option (we paid £1800) for 10 days) and thought a little more care could have been taken. staff were helpful and pleasant though.
Sarah (21 August 2014)

Beuatifully situated park, peaceful but lively at the same time. River beach was wonderful and a great alternative to the swimming pool complex which was also top quality and fantastically clean. As always, caravan quality varies tremendously and ours was not nearly as nice as the one our friends had which was supposedly a cheaper model - this is my biggest bugbear with eurocamp and the constant rebranding just makes it worse. Also pitch sizes are smaller than we are used to here and we would not have been happy with where some were situated but we were lucky with ours. Facilities for kids very good. Great area with lots to see and do although traffic very busy in high summer. Would thoroughly recommend.
Briony from Long Hanborough (18 August 2014)

The aspect caravan was brilliant, so clean, spacious and well equipped. We didn't feel as if we were in a caravan at all. The parc has great facilities, especially the fab pools. The entertainment was great, although in french, so our children felt a bit left out at times. The bbq's were a little bit tired and needed new grills that didn't fall over every time you put your good on them! other than that a fantastic holiday!
Leanne from Henlow (14 August 2014)

L'ardeche is a lovely part of the world and the parc is ideally situated. it is a great base from which to explore the ardeche and the parc has lots to offer.
Helen from Leicestershire (13 August 2014)

We had a great holiday. The pool complex at the park is excellent and the park setting is lovely. The caravans were clean and well fitted out.
Joanna from Maclesfield (09 August 2014)

Great holiday, camp has decent pool, well priced restaurant and close to river.
Richard from Cambridge (03 August 2014)

Beautiful park and location. Park is kept immaculately clean, staff at the park were very friendly, couriers very helpful thoughout our stay. Restaurant and takeaway food is very good. Swimming complex is great and kept us and our kids aged 7 & 9 entertained throughout our stay. 5 min walk to the beautiful river which you can swim/paddle/fish in! interesting drive through the mountains to get there! will definitely be staying here again.
Helen from Colchester (31 July 2014)

Superb parc- our teenagers loved the pool complex while my husband and I canoed and swam at the river. Shame about our tiny pitch and the state of the caravan on arrival.
Christine from St Albans (29 July 2014)

For two adult couples it was not comfortable accomodation. When it was brought to the attention of the english member of staff that a catetiere, which was on the inventory, was not in the chalet, he was not helpful. He made no suggestion about an alternative except for us to go to the supermarket to buy one.
Thomas from Belfast (29 July 2014)

A really nice park in an excellent setting although some of the lifeguards could be somewhat officious in terms of the rules regarding the wearing of swimming trunks, apparently even relatively short trunks (ie well above the knee) were still not considered appropriate.
Ian (22 July 2014)

We love the parc, set as it is among the old oak woodland. all the facilities we need, for both us as parents and our children. looking forward to our next visit already.
Nicholas from Oswestry (16 July 2014)

We stayed a week previously at les ranchisses, which was truly great. However, there were a number of small disappointments with our accomodation at the second site (compared to the first), for example: the towels did not include a thick bathroom floor towel, no washing up apparatus, no welcome pack, lods of mould in the shower (which could easily been cleared away with some effort), loudly dripping shower from the tap itself which kept me awake, sun loungers filthy. Not really impressed and was way behing the standards at les ranchisses. The pool did not open till 10 am 8am at les ranchisses, so no early swims which are really nice. The area is beautiful di eurocamp where not up to scratch here.
Simon (13 July 2014)

The park was pleasant. the restaurant was lovely, the staff are very friendly. loved the river.
Cheryl from Watford (12 July 2014)

Good parc just too big for our needs.
Judith from Barnsley (30 June 2014)

A very good site for a family holiday, with an excellent pool complex, a good range of facilities and pleasant campsite staff. A multi-national site, and popular with french weekenders.
Dinah from Weymouth (30 June 2014)

This is a amazing parc with friendly staff we have been 4 years on the run
Louise from Liverpool (29 June 2014)

Excellent mobile home on fairly large parc. Proved to be excellent base for cycling holiday in the area.
Graham from Wokingham (28 June 2014)

Our stay on this site was not as enjoyable for us as we would have liked. mainly due to the extremely hot weather, 38c on several days and very warm of a night time.
Mary from Gravesend (28 June 2014)

Good camp brilliant pools
Fw from Sanders (27 June 2014)

Outstanding holiday and a good first experience of france!
Paul from Newton Aycliffe (27 June 2014)

Great parc, good facilities. Third visit to this parc & would definately return. There was an issue with 2 groups of french teenagers who made excessive noise until 2:30am but the eurocamp reps & the camps own reception staff seemed to handle it well.
Graeme from Darlington. (26 June 2014)

Overall good but we did stay at 2 other sites before this one and would like to comment on these.
Roderick from Stoke-On-Trent (21 June 2014)

Very disappointed with caravan.couriers not up to standard of previous holidays.we were inundated with rowdy french teenagers over the bank holiday weekend.and so much noise until the early hours.
Denise from Swansea (20 June 2014)

Very good
Terry from Burscough (18 June 2014)

Great couriers but site not as luxurious as we were hoping. Small pitch and no storage in our vista mobile.
Hannah (14 June 2014)

Great campsite great area good staff. Only complaint was erratic opening times of on site shop.
Bryan from Salisbury (14 June 2014)

The holiday was very enjoyable and the area proved very good for cycling and walking. Temperatures however were very high and curtailed the activities somewhat.
Paul from Marple (14 June 2014)

Great kids water park and good pool. Accommodation was fine, as expected. The camp is close to pont d'arc which is a great place to spend a few days with the kids in the river, and close to a few very beautiful villages.
Garmon (12 June 2014)

Great. 5 sites visited over a 5 week period in france. all very different but suited our purposes well. good for both on-site activities and for local trips.
John from Brighouse, West Yorks (26 May 2014)

We were really disappointed with the eurocamp standards of cleanliness and customer service at this camp. We stayed at start of season and had several issues ranging from drainage problems with all the water systems, including the toilets, dead ants dropping from the gas boiler and dirty patio furniture and overall the general lack of efficient customer service for the eurocamp courier. the lady who was running the cycle centre was, however, a real asset to eurocamp with her friendliness and knowledge of the area. . as for the camp site itself, it is listed as a 4 or even 5 stars depending where you checked but at a stretch it may reach a 3. The units are very close together and mainly in shaded tree areas. The site staff were friendly and helpful. We didn’t use the pool areas but they looked to be very clean and well used by families. The restaurant, whilst it had little variation on the menu from week to week, was lovely and meal well cooked and local wines recommended were delicious. Another drawback was internet connection, which was a bit non existent in the far away homes when the site was busy so easier to use the coffee shop area. . . overall we wouldn’t recommend this park as somewhere we would consider visiting again. .
Wilma from Forres (17 May 2014)

Nice campsite with direct acces to the river where we paddled in may with both kids and dog.
Saffron from Beziers (France) (09 May 2014)

Fantastic position, at the time of the year we went it was quiet which is what we like, loved the river despite the snakes in it!! fabulous climate, out of this world scenery, would definitely recommend this area to anyone.
Nicola from Watchet (07 September 2013)

An amazing area to explore within the ardeche.first time we would say we could of done with the holiday being 10nights instead of 7.the resort is simply the best we have been will be very hard to find one that will be as good as ranc davaine we will definitely be coming back!
Siwan from Bryngwran, Anglesey. (02 September 2013)

Fantastic area and great campsite.
Kate from York (31 August 2013)

Very busy parc with mobile homes cramped together. Only parc of 5 not to let men swim in swimming trunks and as we didnt want to spend 30 eruos on trunks we didnt swim there. . .
Liz from West Sussex (31 August 2013)

The parc was busy but generally the areas away from the bar were peaceful so we could choose quiet or busy. The pool area was really good and keep our children happy for hours.we wished we had chosen a higher spec for the mobile home as the fittings etc in the horizon were quite tired and it was quite cramped compared to other eurocamp mobile homes we have stayed in. There is a lot to do in the area and the scenery and landscapes make it a really interesting area to visit.
Rachel (31 August 2013)

Very old mobile but not too much of a problem as we only stayed overnight but wouldn't want to be in it for 2 weeks. They really need updating.
Wendy from Hampshire (31 August 2013)

A good relaxing holiday. Ardeche is a beautiful area which combines a great opportunity to relax and enjoy the area while also being able to be active with plenty of swimming in both pool and rivers, cycling on and off-road and enjoyable wine tasting.
Alison (31 August 2013)

The camp was fantastic; great facilities, super clean and tidy swimming pools, access to the river, entertainment every evening (if you wanted it), good shop for basics and the camp generally was clean, tidy and well maintained. the ardeche is a beautiful area of france; plenty to see and do - historic towns and villages to visit; we kayaked down the river; pony-trekked amongst the vineyards and made a day trip to avignon; and also had relaxing days spent on the campsite either by the river or by the pool.
Elizabeth from Cranbook (25 August 2013)

Fantastic location, stunning parc with great facilities. Great family holiday. Children loved the swimming pools and splash zone.
Nicola from Burton On Trent (24 August 2013)

Excellent base for a family holiday. The couriers were very knowledgable about the surrounding area and we had a great holiday with canoeing a real highlight!
Mike from Nottingham (23 August 2013)

Had a lovely time at ranc davaine, good parc and facilities
Clare from Whitley Bay (21 August 2013)

Great area for walking, canoeing and exploring.
Joanne from Leicester (19 August 2013)

The parc is excellent. It is very clean and the pool complex is well laid out and attended. The accommodation is as expected, although the 2nd bedroom does not have big enough beds for a 14 year old, 6' tall, boy. However, sleeping in the living area was no big problem. The area the parc is situated is unspoilt and the forest provides a great natural surrounding. There is lots to do and we would return to further explore the river activities, in particular.
Stephen from Headley Down, Hampshire (18 August 2013)

Fantastic holiday, really lovely park with excellent pool area, kids adored it. Great to be able to walk to the river, accomodation a little cramped and could have done with ac but well equiped and helpful couriers.
Jill from Shoreham By Sea (17 August 2013)

We had a lovely time, the weather was great. We went canoeing and to balazuc, ruoms and sampzon.
Jill (17 August 2013)

Really enjoyed this parc very good pool for kids and very friendly atmosphere
Darren from Bridgwater (12 August 2013)

Lovely campsite with lots to do and in a beautiful area. Perfect for our primary school aged children. Accommodation was as expected although the pitch was not spacious.
Catherine from Ampthill (11 August 2013)

A lovely holiday camp by the river, with lovely pool and restaurant/bar facilities. Well maintained and looked after.
Dian from Buckinghamshire (10 August 2013)

"it was a bit busy but I enjoyed the swimming pool. some things I didn't know what to do e.g. When I wanted to play tennis we didn't know if we needed to book or not" sukhi aged 6. .
Philippa (10 August 2013)

Lovely pool. Very clean.
Clare from Leamington Spa (10 August 2013)

An excellent holiday destination, relaxed atmosphere fantastic pool and beach on the river, probably had one of the best keycamp holidays ever at this park.
Paul from Wethoughton (08 August 2013)

This is a great park with good facilities and close to a lot of the ardeche activities.we enjoyed the evening entertainment and all of the camp staff were pleasant and helpful
Jenny from York (31 Jul 2013)

We spent 4 nights in the ardeche primarily to visit the rivers for canoeing and swimming. we loved it and all agreed the area would make a great base for up to 2 weeks.

A great parc in a great location, with loads to do on site and nearby. We loved it and would highly recommend, especially if you want to do something different every day. Canoeing on the ardeche is a must !
Malcolm from Milton Keynes (26 Jul 2013)

Who the hell designed the sunlight accommodation, they have obviously never been on this sort of holiday with 2 kids. Luckily we are all double jointed and flexible gymnasts so we could put our clothes in the wardrobe. Unfortunately we aren't under 3 feet tall so getting dressed standing on the bed was problematic. What a novel idea having to open the french doors before you could open the fridge. The positioning of electric sockets was unusual, shame our chargers could not fit in them because the ceiling was in the way. Never had to waddle out of a bathroom before to get enough elbow room to wipe my bum. But the decking was great.
Phil from Cheshunt (25 Jul 2013)

This was the seventh consecutive year that we have taken our main holiday through eurocamp and we had a brilliant time once again. although we had been to the ardeche region before, albeit at a different part, it was good to revisit some of the sights we had seen before and to explore some places that we hadn't. a trip to nimes proved to be well worth the time and effort - so much to see and do!! we visited the amphitheatre and the maison carree, but didn't have enough time there to see les jardins de la fontaine. it is certainly a town that I would want to see again. on our way home, we went to le puy en velay, which is another town worthy of spending more time in and exploring more thoroughly.
Malcolm from Northampton (02 Jul 2013)

This was simply the best holiday that we have had with eurocamp, and these date back to the 1970's, so we are old customers!. . ir was in a delightful and beautiful setting, and in june provided us with an environment which was busy, but not hectically busy as would have been the case in july/august. . . the ardeche is simply stunning, giving us ample opportunity to go walking to the stunningly attractive gorges, lovely beaux villages of the region, with which we have fallen in love. . the ranc devine staff were extremely helpful;and the pools on the site provided us with cooling swims during a hot period. . eurocamp representatives were unfailingly helpful, and it was very good to have the opportunity to speak to lucy when she visited, and to talk to her about our experience, which was wholly positive.
Richard from Prudhoe (02 Jul 2013)

Fantastic campsite, very clean, great pitch size, very private, amazing pool area, great facilities for young and old. Fantastic region, lovely towns, markets etc.
Nicola from Kirkby-In-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire (29 Jun 2013)

This parc,of eight we visited,was very good indeed.from the splendid restaurent to the highly efficient courier it could hardly be faulted.only the weather diminished our enjoyment.we should have stayed for is a pity that in this parc and some others the mobiles are grouped too closely together. in a small part of the site.
Matthew from Northampton (27 Jun 2013)

The parc is in a beautiful location. The ardeche is stunning, postcard vistas everywhere you look. We had a great holiday at ranc davaine and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others. Pool area is excellent, the retracting roof over one of the pools is very useful when the weather is not so good. The kids (and adults!) loved the slides.
John from Liverpool (22 Jun 2013)

Excellent restaurant on park.
Shona from Girvan (22 Jun 2013)

A wonderful holiday in a beautiful area on a fantastic site.
Andy from Chalgrove (21 Jun 2013)

Overall this was a most pleasant stay. We were sorry we had only booked 4 nights, would have liked to stay longer.
Brenda from Brighton (17 Jun 2013)

We had a fabulous holiday here! a lovely welcome from jason who just couldn't do enough for us and was so friendly. The caravan was immaculate an had everything we needed for our young family of 5. The site was well kept an we enjoyed the indoor pool everyday as the outdoor pools hasn't quite warmed up at the beginning of the holiday but were warm enough for swimming by the end (early june). great location and a beautiful area, i'd highly recommend for anyone you g or old but especially if you're kids are 7years or more as they can enjoy the canoeing in the area. Ours were younger (5, 3 & 6 months) and we still had a great time. Already looking at the next place we want to go! especial thanks to jason, for being such a friendly face about the place and making us feel so welcome.
Nathalie from Caterham, Surrey (07 Jun 2013)

Despite poor weather, we had a lovely holiday at le ranc. the park had excellent facilities and the surrounding are was very picturesque and interesting. lots of good places for days or part days out and good for cycling.

A very relaxing parc set in a beautiful area, the facilities are fantastic and especially good for families
Joanne from South Wanborough (02 Jun 2013)

Very poor weather, and we had a particularly poor site.
John from Cumbria (31 May 2013)

Lovely park! pitches very close together - they've squeezed a lot in! lovely pool area and play areas for kids. Good location and great area to explore.
Amy from Warwick (31 May 2013)

We know the area quite well from previous visits and wanted to see if it had changed in recent years. Also to do a lot of photography
Les from Worcestershire And Basse Normandie (24 May 2013)

Overall, we had a nice 5-night break, despite 3 full days of rain. However, we were ideally looking for a campsite which had everything, so we would not need to venture off-site (already tried that with small children and not practical). however, even on the 2 sunny days we had to use the indoor pool as the water was freezing outside, so when it came to the rainy days, we felt we had no choice but to go further afield in search of something to do. Would probably not go back to the ardeche unless for a canoe-based holiday.
Lisa from Chamonix, France (18 May 2013)

A good area for exploring and walking. Plenty to do and see . weather spoilt our stay.
Michael And Lesley from Buckinghamshire (30 April 2013)

I am hoping that the issues that I had when I arrived at the sight where a one off as the overall experience of the sight and the area ardeche where that I wanted to go back again.
Kenneth from Broughton Astley Leicestershire (30 April 2013)

This is a one night stop only!
