Apart from the castle, the village itself is absolutely worth a visit. Along with the restoration of the castle, surrounding houses have also been restored to their original state, giving the entire village an authentic, medieval atmosphere. A visit to this special castle will therefore feel like a trip back in time!


On the way there, make a stop at Point de vue- La Borie for breathtaking views.


On the way back, you can stop at Bournazel Castle



When you arrive at this spot, at first you see nothing special. But then suddenly a hole appears, almost 40 metres in diameter and 100 metres deep. You can descend to the bottom by lift or by staircase. The stairs certainly offer the best view and are easy to do, even with children. Once down, a gondola awaits you and takes you across the underground river to the various rooms of the cave. The most impressive room of the cave is the Salle du Grand Dôme, with a ceiling of 94 metres high! Book tickets online for a time slot.

Gouffre de Padirac


This unique geological site, "Trou de Bozouls", is a horseshoe-shaped gorge 400 metres in diameter and 100 metres deep. The Dourdou (the river that flows into the Lot near the campsite) has been eroding the limestone here for thousands of years. There are 3 walks, varying in distance and difficulty. With wooden bridges over the Dourdou and information boards along the way you will discover all the special places of the gorge. 

A nice stop along the way is The lava flow - Clapas or Thubiès!

Conques bewerkt.jpg


Conques is one of the most beautiful medieval villages in France and is located 8 km from the campsite. It is situated on a steep slope with magnificent views. Conques is known for its impressive Sainte-Foy abbey and is on the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela. There are also quaint little shops and a few restaurants.

Don't forget 'Point de Vue du Bancarel' for a stunning view of the town. You can also park your car here for a while (free of charge) and walk to Conques in 20 minutes.



This 2460-metre viaduct, which spans the River Tarn, has the world's highest bridge pier at 343 metres. It connects Clermont-Ferrand in the north with Béziers and Montpellier in the south and is part of an important route from Paris to southern France. The valley of the Tarn near Millau was for a long time a bottleneck in this route because the Tarn could only be crossed by the old road right through the centre of Millau.

There is a viewpoint from where you can enjoy a sublime and panoramic view of the viaduct.



This beautiful waterfall in the middle of the village is well worth a visit. Although there will be significantly less water flowing in summer, a walk through the village to the top is great fun. 


Salles-la-Source is located between Rodez and Conques and is good to combine on a day trip. Once at the top, you have a nice view of the village and its ancient Romanesque church of Saint-Paul (12th century).


To Visit

Gouffre de Padirac


Figeac is known as one of the most beautiful towns in the Lot department. It has stood the test of time very well, which is reflected in many old buildings and medieval streets. There is a walking tour that ensures you see all its highlights.

At the Place des Ecritures, you can admire a granite stone filled with hieroglyphics, in honour of the French researcher Champollion, who deciphered the hieroglyphics. End the walk with a drink in the charming Place Champollion square in the lively heart of the city.

The Saturday market is also a must-see!
