Places in the field
Shade and Sun
Locations are in the shade or in the sun depending on the time of day. The amount of shade is different depending on pitches.
These locations give you a distant view. The view is different depending on the locations, usually on the surrounding fields or mountains.
Places in the wood
The pitches in the wood are in the shade all day long. Those at the edge of the wood enjoy sun in the morning.
The trees and bushes of the wood offer you intimacy from your neighbors.
Places with a view
Located on the heights of Saint-Christol-lès-Alès, our small campsite dominates the surrounding cultures and offers a superb panorama on the chain of the southern Cevennes. With a clear view to the West, we often have the chance to have beautiful sunsets on the mountains!
We have some places with a view of the fields or the Cevennes.
These places are very much in demand. It is a real pleasure to be able to admire the cevennes by getting up in the morning, or to have an aperitif at sunset!
Our other locations also have their strengths and we always try to meet your needs as best we can.
- Close to the farm you will be close to the children’s playground and the swimming pool.
- In the wood you will have shade and intimacy
- In the field, view and more sunshine
For those who prefer a lot of privacy, we even have locations (without electricity) that will make you feel alone in the countryside!
From farm campsite to “aire naturelle”
The campsite du Mas Cauvy has been in existence since 1975.
It all started with a very small farm campsite and cold water in the shower. The farm activity of the family was based mainly on fruits and vegetables. The farm is now no longer active but you will find all the characteristics of an authentic cevennes farm.
We have also used the existing buildings to create the sanitary facilities, in particular in the barn.
Our guests love the rustic and authentic side of our little campsite. So you will not find mobil homes at our place, only tents and caravans.
We are particularly concerned about the environment. We have for example a sanitation by phyto purification (filtration by plants). The selective sorting of waste is used on the campsite. We also ask you to be vigilant in your water consumption, which here is rare and precious.
Our welcome is simple and benevolent, as we would with friends. It is important to us that you are satisfied with your stay so do not hesitate to come to us for any issue.
This campsite will surely remind you of your childhood or your holiday in your grandparents’farm. We want to keep our family camping small and friendly and hope you will enjoy our values of simplicity and authenticity.
We have recently started a renovation process. Every year we plan work for your safety and comfort.
Last year we set up a playground for small children that meets the security standards . We also installed a common barbecue, as charcoal barbecues are not allowed on the pitches.
This winter we are renovating some of the sanitary facilities and we are planting additional trees.
