An ideal location between Alès and Anduze near the Cevennes

Our location

A dry and sunny climate

The sun is one of the great strengths of the region. We have an exceptional climate, hot and dry, ideal for holidays. With 300 days of sunshine a year, the Gard will bring you softness and warmth!

Between town and countryside

The Mas Cauvy is in the countryside, but only 2km from the centre of Saint-Christol-lès-Alès and several supermarkets.

Our farm campsite in the Cevennes is close to Alès or Anduze where you will find animation, shops, markets etc…

Between see and mountains

The campsite has a central location. You can easily radiate in the Gard and the Cevennes.

The Mediterranean Sea is only 70km.

Close to the main axes, you can enjoy a quick access to numerous excursions and sightseeing, such as the National Park of the Cevennes, now registered in the world Patrimoine of UNESCO, the Bambouseraie, the Pont du GardUzès, etc…

Large and spaced places

Calm and tranquility

The space

At the Mas Cauvy, we favor your tranquility. Our 28 pitches are large and well spaced from each other, without the strict delimitations of big campsites. This allows nature to regenerate during the closing period.

Places for all tastes

In our small campsite, each pitch is different: there are for all tastes, small tents, large family tents, caravans, with or without electricity, very shady or “shade and sun”.

Places in the field

Shade and sun

Pitches have shade or sun depending on the time of day. The amount of shade is different depending on the number and location of trees on each pitch.

The view

These places offer an open view. This view is different depending on locations, usually on the surrounding fields or mountains.

Places in the wood


The pitches in the wood are in the shade most of the day. Those at the edge of the wood enjoy sun in the morning.


Trees and bushes of the wood offer you intimacy from your neighbors.

A wonderful view of the Cevennes

Our extra asset

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 on getting up in the morning, or to have an aperitif at sunset!

Other nice places

Our other locations also have their strengths and we always try to meet your needs the 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 more shade and intimacy
  • In the field, you will enjoy the 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!

A family camping

Simple and friendly

For families with small children

The Mas Cauvy Campsite is ideal for families with young children. It is away from main roads and surrounded by fields. Children can play freely and safely.

There are few pitches in our small campsite. The Mas Cauvy has a friendly and family atmosphere. Kids make friends easily and play together.

On the other hand, even in the middle of summer, the campsite is always quiet. That is an advantage that we are particularly keen on. Our campers share our values and are respectful of others.

For couples and singles

Open from April 1st to the end of September, we welcome in off season many couples in search of tranquility.

This is an ideal time to come camping as :

  • It’s nice but not too hot.
  • You avoid the crowd of tourists
  • The price is more interesting than in the high season.


A little old-fashioned campsite

Our story

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 washing facilities, in particular in the barn.

Our values

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 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.

The future

We have recently started a renovation process. Every year we plan work for your safety and comfort.

In 2018, we set up a new and safer playground for children.

We have also installed a shared barbecue, as charcoal barbecues are not allowed on the pitches.

In 2019, we renovated part of the sanitary facilities and we planted additional trees. The reception of people with disabilities is now provided with a new disabled bathroom and ramps.

In 2020 we renovated the small sanitary block located in the wooded part of the campsite and implemented government measures against covid (dispenser of hydroalcoholic gel, disinfectant sprays, etc.)

In 2021, we are currently renovating the barn near the reception and finalizing the renovation of the last sanitary facilities. New tree plantations are also scheduled.
