The welcome is warm, you feel at ease right away. The campsite is really very very clean and very well arranged. The pitches are large and shaded. Close to the forest with departures of hikes, it is also very quiet. For the children it is perfect: a big swimming pool, activities, a great park with also pumptracks. The restaurant is very good with a special mention for the pizzas!
My wife, my 2 year old daughter and I had an excellent stay at the Mas de la Cam campsite: everything was there: the natural setting of the campsite, the calm, the extreme kindness of Françoise and Christopher who are always ready to help you, to give you service and to answer your questions.
We stayed in a gîte and we must point out the great cleanliness of this one as well as the campsite in general, a very important point for us!
Our Dutch neighbors were very friendly, the swimming pool always very clean and quiet: a real happiness!
For sure, we will come back as soon as possible ! 🙂
