Swimming lakes, swimming pools and mountains on the doorstep

If you’ve come to South East France to explore the mountain scenery then Huttopia Dieulefit should come with a warning. Don’t be alarmed if you never actually end up leaving the campsite. There are endless activities and facilities here to pre-occupy you and they duly do. Children scatter from the car the second the doors are opened and you’ll only find them again later, among a rabble of new foreign friends with a volleyball under one arm.

The camping area itself is spread among a speckling of oak and pine trees, with most pitches out in sunny spaces but a few, at the far end of the site, edging into thicker trees. The whole place occupies a sort of no-mans-land terrain – not quite woodland but not quite open either – and, with enough exploring when you first arrive, you can select precisely the right amount of light, shade and space for you.

Along with the regular camping there are a number of glamping options. Two person ‘Bonaventure’ tents feature double beds, storage and bed-side lamps and are the cheapest of the lot. Then there are a number of other units gradually growing in size and facilities right up to their largest cabanes, sleeping six, with en suite bathrooms, a living room and a fully fitted kitchen that even has a dishwasher. The spectrum of options is quite staggering.

At one end of the campsite there is a lake, almost constantly pimpled with swimming children. It has a long wooden pontoon from which you can dangle your feet before slipping in and inflatable boats and kayaks are allowed. Quite why, then, they have also built a heated swimming pool is beyond us, but it accompanies a children’s playground, outdoor table tennis tables and the volleyball courts. Add in the communal central lodge with books and games to keep you busy on rainy (rainy?) days and you can see how mountain-time is quickly ebbed away.

Nearby

In the foothills of the maritime Alps, Huttopia Dieulefit offers excellent walking, cycling and mountain biking with bikes available to hire from the campsite. Set out on one of the 8 marked circuits leaving from the campsite – all the information you need on these trails is available at reception. The local village of Dieulefit is renowned historically for its pottery and ceramics and even today there are over 40 different ceramic workshops in the village. It's a good place for picking up a bargain if you know where to look, so make sure you explore several places before you buy anything! For further history it's a 35 minute drive to Château de Grignan (0033 4 7591 8350), a chunky Renaissance castle on a rocky promontory, and the same to Montélimar, where Château des Adhémar (0033 4 7500 6230) is considered one of the last examples of Romanesque castle architecture in France.

Food & Drink

The café-restaurant opens for breakfast or you can order fresh bread and pastries the evening before, collect it in the morning and eat it back at the tent. Meals generally start at around €10 and there are freshly produced pizzas cooked in a wood oven. BBQs are available for anyone to use in the communal areas dotted around the site.

Opening Times

April – October.
