Reception was closed when we arrived, but easy to make contact and they arrived quickly. The entrance is steep but not a problem to us in camper an. Several sharp bends on the way down. We chose a spot right by the river Tarn which was beautiful and peaceful. It was a bit of a climb to the pool and the sanitaires block but there were washing up areas and a WC nearer we to us. The Cascade was quite small when we were there as it had been quite a dry week. We walked into the little town and that is very attractive, an easy stroll. The staff were friendly and the sanitaires were very good, one of the best we've seen. ACSI in June.

This is an outstanding site in an outstanding location. As we entered the site, we were committed to finding a pitch - 'no turning back' at the top of the hill leading down to the pitches, and its hairpin bend gave us some cause for concern, as our C3 Picasso towed our Pathfinder around it!

The welcome was warm and genuine, but we rarely returned to reception: the hillside on which the camp cascades down to the river is a stiff upward climb!

Toilets and showers are spotless and very well maintained. We were on the site 'out of season', and they were adequate for the clientele. We did just wonder how congested they might get at the height of the season.

We saw the pool, covered leisure centre, and snack bar, but didn't use them.

An absolutely idyllic spot. Walking into the local village is a MUST. We wanted to revisit Albi, and the journey there from the site was spectacular.

We would love to return, but driving the car & pathfinder up and away was quite a trial of nerve; (we were on a beautiful pitch overlooking the river), and the long haul up (in first gear, and hoping we'd not meet any descending vehicles) was the most stressful part of our stay on this lovely site.

Brilliant, a little tricky getting in, but well worth the effort. Very clean shower facilities, lovely river to walk the dogs by. Great location to go and see the bridge. Very friendly welcome. Excellent. We had a large plot which was easy to negotiate, but may have needed a mover if we were using one of the smaller plots.

We are Currently Camping at this Site, and you cannot Fault it at all.

Whilst there is a steep ZigZag down the hill, this was not a problem for us (Car only) but we watched numerous Caravans, Motor homes and even a Coach make it up and down with out problem.

The Facilities are spot on, Toilets/Showers/Laundry are always spotlessly clean. The Swimming Pool, Whilst not supervised is well Managed. The Bar is reasonably Priced and the shop has what you need.

We Choose this site, as we had just purchased a Kayak and wanted to try it out. This was our first real use of it, and there is minimal Current on the river to make it easy to Kayak either way. Kayaking Downstream there is 2 Other Bars which we often Paddled to for a diet coke before paddling back.

A Good thing about this site, was that it allowed Barbecues, Which we had after a days paddling. Wifi is available at almost all locations with a strong signal. Throughput, can be a bit slow, but put that down to DSL technology, rather than the site itself.

We went to into the village, (5 mins, Uphill walk) and there is a small Farmers Market on a Tuesday, and the produce we bought was excellent, we Sampled both Bars, with the 'Auberge' having free Wifi. We used the bakery, but not the convenience store.

Entertainment is put on throughout the day and evening, ranging from Singers in the bar, to Petanque and ping pong competitions to Activities on the river.

The team running the site are very friendly, and hard working.

I would recommend this site wholeheartedly to anyone, particularly those with children.

Only Minus, is that there is no Public Transport, but speaking in the tourist Information, this is a common problem in the region.

We are paying 16 Euro a night, with ASCI card.

Well, we visited this site for ten days last July/August. Upon arrival I was initially disappointed as it seemed we had stopped at the top of a steep mountain with a river at the bottom but we checked in with very friendly and helpful staff who told us that our pitch the the very last one at the end right down the bottom.

Again initially I was terrified as we drove down the zig zag road to the bottom with each layer full of units including tents, caravans and mini canvas chalets. As mentioned its pretty steep and winding, we have a 21' five birth van and not sure you could get anything larger down or up again, we tow with a navara so no worries there but cars would prob struggle to get out!

Upon reaching our pitch again I was not happy due to the drop from the back of the pitch down to the river but decided to just get set up and enjoy our holiday and thank god we did!

With a 3yr old I was worried of the drop at the back of our pitch but once set up with awning and windbreak and BBQ etc he couldn't actually go near the back of our pitch and as it turns out I think it's the best pitch!

We had a footpath right next to our unit which led down to the river bank where there are ample sun beds to lay on.

We had the most amazing view up the river set in the mountains and I fell in love with this!

My toddler jumped into his wetsuit and life jacket within mins and was on his way down to the river where people were swimming.

It was well into the 30's so we all needed to cool down.

There is a boardwalk that goes out 20' or so where people were sunbathing when my son ran and jumped off the end to my horror but came swimming back and loved it!

Next our teens of 15 and 13 jumped in and they all loved it.

They spent their time fishing, swimming and trying to catch the crayfish which were hiding under the rocks along the river.

I loved the river and swam everyday but couldn't see the cascade so on our fourth day we decided to hire kayaks which are based on the river edge but didn't open till 2pm which was a huge shame or we would've gone quite a distance down the river.

Once we worked out how to kayak we were on our way and low and behold there was a beautiful cascade just feet away from the edge of our pitch around the mountain face!

Well worth swimming round if you don't like boats because I thought it was lovely!

You can swim to the other side of the river too and there's a jumping platform.

The river is so deep no one has ever found out how deep and it's a lil eary but we just got on with it and loved it!

The complex is at the top which wasn't a nice walk if we were hot n bothered but well worth it with a lovely pool and children's pool, a cafe and children's park with bouncy castle.

Food and drinks were ok and ok priced and lil shop had essentials but we found two huge supermarkets in the next town of st afrique which is worth a visit!

I would def return to this site if even just for the beautiful location!

They have cracking storms at night but bone dry and hot first thing in the morning. There are also european vipers living in the river but we soon realised they are more scared than us and disappear very quickly as soon as you approach the river bank.

The local village has a couple of shops and restaurants but we never used any.

We did visit Zoo du Beuval which is highly recommended as a must do day out, best zoo I've ever visited and less than an hour away!

Here's a gem of a site. Just outside the village of St Rome du Tarn you're far enough away from the mele of Millau but close enough to go visit when you want. The site is right on the River Tarn with terraced and individual pitches plus EHU to most and water close by all. Size of pitch varies and we had one overlooking the river which was fine for our outfit which is 8m. BUT whilst the approach and road to St Rome du Tarn is easy, once you have booked into the site, the road down from there to the pitches is very steep. Not a problem for a motorhome or car only, but if you are towing you may struggle getting back up. We did but fortunately monsieur had a meaty 4x4 which took our caravan back up to the top with ease!

This site has a huge swimming pool and snacks and food are available in main season. The main shower and toilet block has been rebuilt and was opened this year. It is fantastically modern, clean and better than club sites back in the UK. The owners and staff are really helpful but you will need to walk along the path to the village to pick up bread in the morning - no hardship and surely part of the experience!

Close by you have the stunning Millau bridge which seems to be on the horizon of any drives you do plus The Gorges du Tarn and all the charming villages and towns that inhabit this underated area of France. We definitely recommend the site and the area.
