A modestly-sized campsite with a family feel

Camping de Belos in Thueyts - A modestly-sized campsite with a family feel

Belos camp-site was created in 1983 in a typically Ardèche site in woodlands with many different tree species including oaks, chestnuts, acacias and fruit trees.

We, Ghislaine & Jérôme, moved there in 2020 with the aim of protecting the original site and its Ardèche spirit.

The human scale of the camp-site makes it ideal for families, pensioners, hikers, bikers, athletes and everyone in love with nature, peace and quiet.

We have 69 spacious and shaded pitches dlaid out in green terraces, all separated by natural hedges.

While protecting our harmony with the magnificent landscape around the camp-site, but we also wanted to add some innovations in a natural setting with views over the mountain.

Leisure activities and games on your campsite in Thueyts in southern Ardeche

Campsite with heated swimming pool and water slide

New for 2022 at the campsite swimming pool:

  • Waterslide 2 tracks for all ages
  • Heated swimming pool

The campsite boasts a large (18 m x 8 m) swimming pool surrounded by nature, with a superb view of the Mont Ardèchois and the surrounding countryside.

You can enjoy the pool and water slides to your heart’s content, or bask in the sun at the large beach around the pool, with sun loungers and parasols.

The campsite pool is open from mid-May to mid-September, 7 days a week, from 10:30 am until 8 pm. The pool is away from the camping pitches and rentals, to make sure our campers can also enjoy their peace and quiet.

Campsite with a beach on the banks of the river

The river Ardeche runs alongside the campsite, and there’s direct access to the river, in an exceptional setting under the basaltic lava flow formations and facing a waterfall.

There are several relaxation areas there with sun loungers and deck chairs so you can relax with your feet in the sand.
