Camping l’Art de Vivre
A rich and varied heritage
During your stay you will be able to discover around Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the typical Provençal villages and all the activity of a dynamic region: Art and culture festivals (Avignon festival, Chorégies d'Orange), Provence markets , gastronomic discoveries, wine route, hiking and cycling tours (Via Rhona), amusement park (Spirou and Wave Island) and many other tourist sites typical of our heritage.
A bowl of scented air
In Provence lavender is called blue gold. Emblem of the region, its “soul” said Giono, lavender is omnipresent all year round on site, where it is available in a multitude of by-products, from shops to market stalls: Honey, cookies, herbal teas, perfumes, creams or traditional sachets of dried flowers. Its culture is also expanding, boosted by global demand for natural cosmetics.
But to contemplate these flowers, the time window is limited. Fields generally flower briefly from mid-June to mid-July, and until early August in some places. The Provençal hinterland is then covered with purplish velvet carpets with heady scents. Their lines, as graphic as they are fragrant, delight amateur photographers. The Valensole plateau, where the plants extend as far as the eye can see, is the most popular place.
Other spots, less crowded, also allow you to enjoy the show, such as the plateau d'Albion, that of Claparèdes or Grignan, with the castle of Madame de Sévigné as a backdrop.

For fun and sporting holidays.
Go hiking or cycling, you will be satisfied by marked trails and paths, organized and maintained to make your days easier. You can easily go into the countryside, cross wheat fields and vineyards, walk along the river, or go from cooking classes to tastings, from wellness sessions and massages to cultural visits.

Finally, for “special family” moments, nothing better than a geocaching session or a boat trip on the Ouvèze.
