Camping des Favards
welcome to camping Favards
Welcome to Provence, in the heart of the Côtes du Rhône vineyards. More than an outdoor hotel address, the Domaine des Favards is the ideal destination for wine tourism enthusiasts, heritage lovers and amateur or experienced cycling and climbing athletes.

You will also notice that everything has been designed with respect for nature thanks to reasoned management of waste and the daily application of responsible actions to sort, recycle and participate in the protection of biodiversity. If you want to relax at camping you will appreciate the swimming pool and other fun facilities suitable for the whole family.
On the other hand, if you want to go on an adventure and discover the surrounding riches, the hiking and walking trails, markets, cycling routes, the Dentelles de Montmirail, the Ancient Theater of Oranges and the ruins of Vaison La Romaine. You are not dreaming, you have found the holidays that suit you ...
An organic wine estate
Located in the heart of the southern Rhône Valley vineyard, on a clay-limestone and stony soil, the Domaine des Favards produces rich, generous wines of great character. They cultivate in organic farming 25 hectares in Côtes du Rhône appellation and in Côtes du Rhône Villages Plan de Dieu and welcome you all year round to visit the estate and taste the wines.
Concerned about their impact on the environment as much as the quality of the wines offered, they have made the choice, since 2012, to produce organically and thus contribute to the protection of the planet. They must comply with very strict specifications defined in Europe since 2007 and therefore undertake not to use any synthetic chemicals (fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, etc.).
A sustainable development approach
As an extension of their ecological commitment to the production of wines, the owners of the camping des Favards actively and fundamentally wish to limit their impact on the environment and waste. The upkeep and maintenance of the hedges in the wine-growing landscape provide a natural shelter for a large number of animal species, while protecting the vines from the harshness of the sometimes violent and icy Mistral which characterizes our beautiful region.
Almost all waste can be recycled, taking care to sort it daily. Several facilities are provided for this purpose.
- The packaging container: Only to receive the yellow bag distributed free of charge on your arrival and which contains steel and aluminum packaging (cans, trays, cans, aerosols, etc.), cardboard packaging (boxes of cakes, detergent , milk cartons, etc.) and plastic packaging (bottles, flasks, trays, etc.).
- The glass container: Bottles, jars, jars of jam, only glass.
- The cardboard box: cardboard boxes or plates.
- The paper tray: Magazines, newspapers ...
- The composter: For all organic waste.
- The household waste bin: for all other waste.
Thanks to selective sorting, 50% of household waste can be recycled and become raw materials again ready to form new objects, thus saving natural resources.
The compost obtained by sorting food waste allows, after spreading, to have healthy and fertile soil without using chemical fertilizers.
It also provides ecological shelter for a large number of beneficial microorganisms necessary for the ecosystem (bacteria, fungi, yeasts), but also for other organisms such as earthworms, whose action is essential.
Starting point for sports and cultural activities
In addition to the activities within the camping (swimming pool, pétanque competition, tastings etc.), the camping des Favards invites you to take full advantage of its very privileged geographical location to practice the surrounding activities. There are close to the camping, many hikes and walks for all levels.
The Dentelles de Montmirail tour is particularly famous for its climbing sites. Culminating at an altitude of 730 meters, the massif is about 8 km long and offers you an overall hike of 57 km. The Rocher du Turc is a short hike in the footsteps of the Saracens through the fortifications that have been erected all over the region. The rock of Rocalinaud, also called "lunar rock", sculpted by winds, water and men is a walk in the middle of the vineyards of Beaumes de Venise, not far from the Lace of Montmirail. The Courens plateau overlooks the village of Beaumes-de-Venise.
At the top of the plateau, you will have exceptional views over the plain of Comtat Venaissin and the Dentelles de Montmirail. Do you like cycling? Whether for walking, roaming, sports cycling or mountain biking, you will find a thousand possibilities for routes and bike tours in Provence. Mont Ventoux is a benchmark in the cycling world. Nicknamed the Giant of Provence or Mont Chauve, it rises to an altitude of 1912 meters in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region. It is one of the most famous passes in France and constitutes a real challenge for all cyclists. Do you want to spend a few days of cultural visits?
In addition to the small heritage, visit the ancient ruins of Vaison la Romaine, a city with its 2000 years of open-air history. Also discover the famous Ancient Theater of Orange, classified as a Unesco heritage site as the best preserved Roman theater in the West.
