This review is for Val de Cantobre

Large site, set on a hillside, which has been terraced to allow for reasonably flat camping. pitches. Access to pitches was quite easy. Excellent sanitary facilities, which were kept very clean. Included a special room for children, with showers where the shower tray was raised off the ground, making it easy for parents to shower little ones. The pool was welcome in the hot weather, there was a main pool, children�s pool and a couple of slides. There is a well stocked site shop, with fresh (as opposed to UHT) milk, meat vegetables etc., a bar and a restaurant. Croissants and bread available in the mornings, need to be reordered on the first few days, but as the site got busier this was dispensed with, and there were plenty available. Being set on a hillside it was a walk uphill to the toilets and pool, and up and down steps in other directions. The site was run by Dutch company ACN, which accounted for the fact that by the second week, the majority of campers were Dutch, with French, English etc in the minority. One nice touch was that staff name badges also had a flag showing which languages they spoke. There is a lot to do and see in the area. Various gorges, The Cirque de Navecelles, The Templar towns, Millau and the Viaduct. You can take a boat trip down the river underneath the viaduct. The site provided information on local attractions, including driving tours with directions and walking routes.
