Lovely campsite
We stayed 3 nights at this campsite on the banks of the Allier. Viviane was really friendly. Basic but clean facilities with plenty of hot water. We worried about canoe kids on neighbouring site but they were very quiet at night as were the donkeys! Would happily stay here again.

A peaceful paradise in the nature!
This camping is located in a pure and beautiful highland nearby Langeac and not too far away from Le Puy en Velay. A river crosses the little village Prades offering the possibility to its guests to practice water sports like kayaks and rafting. The camping area is well maintained with enough shadow. The camping has two main areas where the toilets and showers are located. These are comfortable but not luxurious. Viviane is a wonderful host that warmly welcomed us. The views from the camping are in our opinion one of the best things to consider while visiting this place. My boyfriend and I will surely visit Viviane and her camping in the near future again!

Lovely retreat
This is a delightful site. The facilities are more basic than some sites but this is more than compensated for by the friendly, laid-back atmosphere. The environment is managed in a way that enhances the natural beauty of the surrounding area producing a sense of tranquility and peace. It is very different from the bustle and anonimity of many larger sites. The table d'hote was very tasty and good value. We would have liked to have stayed longer. Would recommend to others.
