Sampzon, the Pont d’Arc and the Gorges de l’Ardèche

From the moment you arrive at our campsite in Sampzon, be prepared for a sense of escape and endless discoveries. Day after day, you can explore the best the region has to offer: 

  • Sampzon and its magnificent view;
  • Aubenas and its superb medieval castle, at the foot of the Cévennes; 
  • Ruoms and its shady little streets, perfect for a stroll.


The holidays are made for indulgence and a camping holiday in the Ardèche is bound to be a culinary affair! Among the local specialities, we’d recommend starting with toupi d’Ardèche, a mouthwatering potato and pork gratin. 

Then there’s the picodon, a slightly tangy goat’s cheese. 

For dessert, how about a pantin d’Annonay, a pretty pink shortbread biscuit and – we mentioned indulgence, didn’t we? – a few macaroons from Joyeuse? The locals have been tucking into them since 1581!


An abundance of activities, just steps away from your holiday home

Whatever the season, the holidays are the perfect time to reconnect with your favourite pastimes… or try something new! In addition to the activities on offer at your Sampzon campsite (water park, swimming pool, playground, etc.), there are plenty of others just a few minutes away.
