Castle campsite in the midst of breathtaking Auvergne

Camping Château de Grange Fort is in every sense of the word an unusual and very beautiful family campsite. If not just for its location! This campsite in the Auvergne is set on an old country estate around a 15th century castle on a hill. This region has recently become a World Heritage Site.

Such beautiful pitches

You can choose from natural marked-out pitches or a field with unreserved camping at Château de Grange Fort campsite. It will be hard to find a more beautiful spot for a camping holiday in France!

Half board also possible

You can cool down in the castle's lovely swimming pool at Château de Grange Fort campsite while younger guests splash around in a separate toddlers' pool. There is a lovely heated indoor pool for the low season. There is also a sauna, an informal bar and a restaurant at Château de Grange Fort campsite. You can go fishing, swimming or canoeing on the River Allier on the edge of the estate. You can also choose half board at Château de Grange Fort campsite, very convenient!

From Vulcania to Puy de Dôme

But the area around Les Pradeaux, the area where Château de Grange Fort campsite is located, is also spectacular with its breathtaking Auvergne landscape, a green oasis with sturdy castles and sleepy villages. Discover the Puy de Dôme, almost two thousand metres high with unprecedented views, or visit the medieval heart of Clermont-Ferrand, just half an hour's drive from Château de Grange Fort campsite. For an adventurous day out visit the nearby theme park Vulcania!
