Land & setting
  • Alain is a very good host, concerned about the well-being of his campers and the good life on his campsite (services, cleanliness, ...).
    The river at 500m is a happiness !

  • A family week in a privileged place.
    Shady land located a few steps from the river!
    A real corner of paradise!
    Cherry on the cake: Alain is very attentive!
    Ps: His vegetables are divine!

  • A pretty and shady setting
    A corner of nature at the edge of the chassezac
    A simple campsite without pretention but where we feel good.
    Our host Alain is attentive and invested always has the listening.
    The sanitary facilities are not luxurious but we don't need them at the campsite.
    Small wink: the musical toilets are an original idea but not without interest
    Thanks again for everything to Alain.

  • Alain is very welcoming, friendly
    Very wooded land, beware of branches with camper. Near river, beautiful environment

  • Party to discover the Ardeche to my love ... without precise destination ... following the registration on the application we found Alain next to where we were. He was very reactive and very pleasant and welcoming.

  • There are places where you don't need anything more to be happy, nature, calm and a warm welcome from our host Alain who will make sure that your stay goes as well as possible. Not the luxury of a starred campsite, but the luxury of being in a quiet green haven away from the constant noise of unscrupulous holidaymakers.
    I highly recommend this place for a return to nature in all simplicity but with direct access for each site, water, electricity and a fridge.
    Thank you Alain, for sure if I had to come back to the region I would pitch my tent with you.

  • Very good reception
    The place is very well located near the river.
    Ideal bucolic setting to rest and enjoy the Ardeche.
    The freshness is very pleasant under the trees in spite of the strong heats which we could have this weekend.

  • What happiness...... ❤❤❤ the kindness of our host, the shady location and the proximity of the river conquered us☀️☀️☀️.
    Living in simplicity, while having on the site water and electricity which is, not negligible, was a real disconnection. Nature lovers it is here that you must stop, calm and without fuss, as a couple, with friends or family. The little extra, Alain sells his fruits, vegetables and fresh eggs from his chickens ???? so what more could you ask for, especially for a good breakfast? Don't look here for swimming pool, bar and animation, you will be disappointed, but if on the contrary you are looking to recharge your batteries you are at the right address. The landscapes are magnificent. Alain is a lover of his region, he will guide you on the places to go, the markets and the activities to do. Let him guide you and enjoy this haven of peace.

  • Very pleasant stay in Alain's little Oasis...lots of greenery, shade, birds...
    At 2 steps from the river.
    The sanitary facilities are basic but fully parasitic and annoying lights on the's great...
    Only the light of the moon rising behind the reeds illuminates us... total calm...
    It must be said that I was alone during my stay...
    Alain is a very friendly host...his large vegetable garden provides very good seasonal vegetables...for me, it was the time of the strawberries, at very small price...a treat!
    I will come back with great pleasure...

  • Great weekend at 2 steps from the river, in the middle of nature.
    Alain is a very nice host who gives a lot of good advice on what to do in the surroundings (mountain biking, restaurant and canoeing for us).
    The sanitary facilities would deserve a little refreshment.

  • If you miss Southeast Asia, go to Alain ;)
    I personally loved this place surrounded by vegetation with the river at 150m. Alain adorable. Khopjai lai lai Alain !

  • Camping super in the middle of nature Alain super simpa and helpful and c vegetable succulent close to the river and kayak activities very well located and beautiful landscape

  • We had a great time, Alain is very welcoming and very nice.
    The environment is beautiful, its facilities are a plus for the campers. The river is 100 m away.
    There is everything you need to fully enjoy your vacation. Back to nature and calm guaranteed.

  • Good welcome, frank host and good advice, pleasant entry point to the river.

  • A great man who takes care of these campers :)

  • Pleasant stay in a small and cheap family campsite where Alain's welcome and kindness are the strong points.
    Well situated in relation to the river and the canoe trips.
    Beware that the pitches for large tents are not suitable, luckily Alain helped us out by offering us a caravan and coffee ????. Thank you

  • Alain is a welcoming person, he makes sure that nothing is missing for his guests. Always willing to answer questions and advise on activities or nice bike routes. We stayed 4 days, the site was of sufficient size and moreover it had a drinking water point.
    For a modest extra charge we were able to have a fridge and electricity.
    The proximity to the river is really a plus.
    The small drawback would be the sanitary facilities, they are a bit outdated but for the price it is largely sufficient.
    We will come back with pleasure and even longer during our next stay in Ardèche.
    Thank you Alain for this stay and see you next year.

  • Good reactivity of Alain for the reservation. Roots" place in accordance with an accessible price.
    Proximity with the river, magnificent spot of relaxation! Thank you Alain

  • Thank you for having accepted us at the last moment, and for having put at our disposal the sanitary facilities only for us :-).
    Roots" place but very close to the river.

  • Very pleasant stay far from the sanitized world we know these days! I really liked this little corner of the river where children and adults enjoyed themselves.

  • Good progress of the subject, Alain makes small evening karaoke rather sympathetic, the river is not far.
    Some pitches are cramped.
    The sanitary facilities should be improved in the future.

  • Alain is definitely a super-host!
    Kind, present and always ready to give a recommendation, a service... In short, we had a perfect stay not only because of his kindness but also because of the place. The pitches are well shaded and spacious, the facilities very good and well maintained. The proximity of the river promises beautiful days of walking or canoeing!
    I recommend it and we can't wait to come back!

  • Alain is a very friendly host and very concerned about the comfort of his guests. His site is far from being a classic campsite and there is a good conviviality between people. Beautifully planted with trees, the site offers protection from the suffocating heat of the Ardèche summer. And what a pleasure to be able to swim in this magnificent river between flat rocks and refreshing baths.

  • We are very happy with our stay at Alain's, we will come back without any problem.
    A beautiful beach is a few hundred meters away.
    There are beautiful walks to do in the area and pretty villages are nearby.
    And to conclude Alain is very friendly.
    See you soon Alain

  • Very good welcome ...
    But despite everything we did not stay...dark place..small site and a lot of junk everywhere we preferred to take the road again...shower and toilet at disposal well maintained and clean but very short not comfortable in this small campsite

  • Great welcome, super nice neighbors.

  • Great stay! We leave with a lot of memories. The nearby river is great with a climbing spot nearby. We participated in the work of the garden, a moment of happiness especially for the children who could make tractor and quad, great.

    See you soon Alain and thank you

  • Alain is a very welcoming person. He offered me a very nice place to pitch my tent. His campsite is located less than 5 minutes walk from the river. The campsite is quiet and has a family atmosphere. I will come back, and will recommend this place without hesitation! Thanks to you

  • Extremely disappointed!
    We paid more than we should have, scam?
    Is not honest about the quality/price ratio.
    He always wants to charge extra for any request, he is not in the sharing.
    What a pity, Alain is nevertheless welcoming. Don't be fooled by his kindness which hides many surprises.
    I don't recommend it.

  • Perfect, we will come back
    Alain is very friendly, quiet place and beautiful region

  • Very good welcome from Alain in his small rustic campsite.
    Very well placed !

  • Very nice night at Alain's

  • Very harsh opinion on this stay... Alain and his companion are nice and helped us to make enter our caravan. But to our great surprise, we fall in front of a camping. If we looked for our stay on HC, it is precisely to avoid that. (Obviously, at the time of the reservation, it was not written that it was one). And to continue the surprises... extra charge to connect to the electricity, extra charge for our cat... We were placed at the end of the alley, as if there was no more room: NO HEDGE for delimitation (obliged to park our car in order to hide us). We were very disappointed. On the other hand, quite well placed, and the river next to it is quite nice!

  • Great stay, 100m from the river, the campsite is simple and quiet. Alain welcomed us well. We recommend it!

  • Stay in half-tone.
    Ideal location because 2 minutes walk from the river which is beautiful, full of activities around adapted to all ages.
    But disappointed because it's not a home stay but a "camping" but without the services nor the norms respected. (Bits of metal coming out of the ground, backhoe as decoration, dilapidated bamboo breaker, heaps of household appliances, ... photos to support)
    Big disappointment when I received the bill! 1,5e per day for the second car, a tax that was never mentioned even though we could have parked it outside. 3rd more electricity per day announced on arrival, not mentioned at the reservation +.15€ per kwh. Visitor's tax, and other expenses... and something that never happened, I have to pay the loss of profit that the owner loses by going through the homecamper platform.
    So yes, the price is reasonable at the time of
    booking but beware of false fees in the end.

  • Chez Alain For the price there is nothing missing
    Super well placed, magnificent site
    Atypical everything is home made

  • Be careful, don't expect a big green field at the inhabitant's place, it is a very cluttered rural camping (pallets, old fridges, all kind of products) with about ten places. Located on the river bank, it is the major asset of the place. There is shade on the pitches. On the other hand, the sanitary facilities are old and untidy. It is the big defect. We lacked hot water, one of the showers is located in the middle of the washing-up bins. For the number of campers present and in period of covid we found the state of the sanitary facilities limited.
    We paid extra for the individual fridge + electricity + the dog.
    Several evenings very noisy because of the parties of the surrounding campsites.
    On the other hand very good vegetables of the garden and fresh eggs.

  • A very beautiful and family campsite at the edge of the water, a host more than welcoming, always ready to give advices of hike to make discover his small piece of Ardeche, really to recommend!
    The campsite is very shaded, you can buy Alain's tomatoes for a very modest sum, and the region is really magnificent. We will return with pleasure!

  • An exceptional welcome allowing to be quickly at ease. Yes, Alain's tomatoes are delicious, but so is the information he provides to help you discover the region! Alain's availability is remarkable. The place is the reflection of Alain's history, heir of this agricultural land where the vineyard and the peach trees have been replaced by trees whose shadows are refreshing.
    Thank you Alain!

  • We had a wonderful stay at the foot of the Chassezac!
    Alain is adorable and very available, and his tomatoes and eggs are delicious!
    The ground and the sanitary facilities are rather rudimentary but for the price, nothing to say!
    Thank you Alain!!!

  • Alain is an exceptional person, very attentive and always ready to help when we have a problem. He is very available and accommodating.

    Although the ad is on HomeCamper, it is a real campsite with several pitches etc. Don't expect luxury, it is back to basics. Don't expect luxury, it's back to basics and nature that is preferred.
    The campsite is well placed as there is access to the river a few hundred meters away and it is very pleasant.

    On the other hand, the hygiene should really be reviewed, especially in these times of Covid: the sanitary facilities are not (ever?) cleaned, and objects of all ages and all states are stored all over the campsite.

    Despite this, we had a good time at Alain's place.

  • Unfortunately, we did not appreciate Alain's camping at all and left the same evening. We had booked two months in advance and we were offered a small place with a view on old fridges under a jumble of boards and sheets. We had booked a van+tent pitch but they were separated. The sanitary facilities were more than doubtful.
    The welcome was warm and we got our money back without any problems. We would like to thank Alain for his welcome and his kindness and we wish him all the best for the future but we had to put our comment so that the future campers know that all the pitches are not as idyllic as those written on the previous comments.

  • Heavenly setting near the river. Sanitary very clean and functional. Spacious location and a very good welcome from Alain. +++++++. See you soon Alain.

  • Alain gave us a very warm and friendly welcome, but we were a bit surprised by the site, it's a very shady rural mini-campsite with a lot of bric-a-brac in the corners, but after this first impression, we spent 3 very good nights in the calm.
    The surroundings are just beautiful, the river with its stone labyrinth is an ideal playground for children and parents, and the walks on the high ledges are magnificent.

  • I highly recommend Chez Alain!
    Very chill corner, cool atmosphere. Alain always present, listening to his guests, we would stay longer.
    See you next time :)

  • Thank you Alain! What a great meeting! What a beautiful person you are! Atypical place, made of bric-a-brac, greenery, near the river naturally made of slides, small waterfalls, stone baths, etc.: magic for children! Magic for young and old! Lots of shade and coolness, which was very appreciated in the middle of the heat wave! To discover and live as you are, without fuss, because Alain's kindness is authentic, true, sincere... rare! Many things to visit and to do not far away, including the descent of the Ardèche in canoe, the small local markets, the picturesque villages, etc. No doubt, we will be back! Thanks again Alain!

  • Super stay that we spent at Alain's. Very welcoming, and in addition he has tomatoes too good!
    We have the river at 5 min behind the campsite.
    Some supplements to foresee (tourist tax, electricity and fridge rental)

  • Thank you Alain to have made us discover this magnificent place!

  • Alain is very welcoming, pleasant and helpful. Very shady location with a beautiful river nearby. In addition, he has organic vegetables from the garden at a low price. I am very satisfied with my stay and will be back very soon.

  • Very good stay with Alain.
    Very welcoming and with the small care for its campers...
    The campsite is very simple but friendly, we really find the campsite without fuss.
    The place is magnificent, no need for a swimming pool and slides when you have a magnificent river at 2000 meters.
    I keep good memories of this stay and especially the address.
