Camping Du Lac in the Pyrenees

I think that Camping du Lac was probably our favourite site.

For anyone thinking of visiting the Pyrenees this is a wonderful area to choose to stay.  From here we visited Lac du Gaube and Gavarnie as well as the nearby village of St Savin (on our bikes!)  We only had a few nights though and genuinely feel that we could easily have filled a fortnight.

It was a little worrying as we approached as coming through St Savin you go through a square and your exit road looks a little narrow, but if we can get the motorhome and car combo through then anyone should be able to manage it.


The welcome was warm – it’s clearly a family run site with the family living in the main house.  There is a mix of lodges and pitches, with a mix of Brits and Dutch mostly when we visited.  As it wasn’t very busy when we were there we were able to use 2 pitches and park in a way that helped us to level off – we were a bit concerned about how level you might be able to get in busier times.

The view, as you can see, was amazing.  And different with any change in the weather 🙂

Here we saw deer and red kite, and we could hear the cow and goat bells throughout the day (it’s a lovely deep sound).

There was a lovely looking pool – it was disappointing though that it wasn’t open until the following week (2 weeks after the site opened for the season) especially as it was 30 degrees + while we were there.

There was WiFi, but it wasn’t brilliant (think about where we were!), a laundry and a little shop.  The staff were so friendly and helpful I couldn’t fault them.  The toilets had the full suite of facilities that I desire – i.e. toilet roll, toilet seats, soap and also completely private cubicles!

Would we visit again?  In a heartbeat – any difficulties are completely drowned out by the positives and the position is unbeatable.  This from a couple who like to see what else is out there.  This is a ringing endorsement – if you ever get the opportunity to visit the Pyrenees I would suggest you could do far worse than choose Camping du Lac as your base 🙂  Happy travels xDSC_0135
