The Oasis family campsite extends over 6.5 hectares on the side of a valley, well away from the traffic. There are 22 holiday homes to rent and 41 large, peaceful camping pitches with beautiful views from the terraces.
Swimming pool : The 16x6m swimming pool is heated and open from the beginning of May to the end of September (weather permitting). There are also 2 paddling pools (20cm and 40cm deep) where younger children can play on the double slide and enjoy the many different fun installations available.
River : The river Ay which runs alongside the campsite is a first-class fishing watercourse, which is pollution-free and completely safe as it is very shallow. It is a good place to splash around, build dams or fish for trout at the no-kill spot near the Moulin du cour.
