Detailed description

Want to stay at a child-friendly campsite in Southeast France? Then think about Le Grand Bois. We have a three-star campsite near Dieulefit. On our site we have 5 camping places on the edge of the sun meadow with all the views of Mount St. Maurice. This mountain is also called the Indian because of its shape. With a little imagination he gives the idea of a face of a reclining Indian.  

 Le Grand Bois is a family campsite in the Drôme, an undiscovered area that borders Mont Ventoux. We are a little further, just outside Le Poët-Célard. Places like DieulefitSaoû and Bourdeaux are close by. A location where you can experience everything. Not just sporty, such as mountain climbing, cycling and canoeing, but also cultural. Just think of the markets and historic locations. We offer an overview on our environment page. Then you can already prepare your trip ;-).  

Light camping spots Drôme Provençale

The camping pitches are located on the lawn. Nearby is a large forest, where most of the camping places are. That is why our campsite is called Le Grand Bois, the big forest. You have lots of light and sun on the sunbathing lawn. The places are approximately 90 square meters, so that a tent can always stand. All pitches are suitable for a motorhome or caravan and have electricity. Our campsite is perfect for the reception of groups, especially in the early and late season.  

Those who enjoy swimming will enjoy it. We have access to an outdoor swimming pool with children’s pool. There is also a play set and a table tennis table. Our sanitary building is within walking distance. There is a bar / restaurant on the campsite where you can enjoy a drink and dinner. The campsite is open from 1 May to approximately 20 September.

“We always go to rustic campsites. Le Grand Bois is rustic and cozy! Large places (spacious enough for our large Karsten tent and hammock) in the middle of the forest or on the edge of the playing field with a beautiful view over the valley and the mountains. Here you are certainly not guy line over guy line. Attention to the environment: you get bags to separate your waste and you can buy biodegradable products for the ecological water purification plant at the purchase price.

High season is lively. Many children play freely because cars stay in the parking lot. Also a nice bar with daily specials, pizza and fries. A bbq on Wednesday. Cozy and small-scale, no animation or anything else.

Nice swimming pool with sun beds. Clean and spacious bathroom with wonderful hot showers. Bread to order and beautiful surroundings.

Spent the last night in rooms of the B&B, so that we could start the journey home without packing stress. Very nice!.”

ANWB campsite in southern France

At Le Grand Bois we go for quality. We are affiliated with the ANWB and other organizations such as ANCV, Coolcamping and FRHPA. Le Grand Bois is a relatively small campsite. In addition to the camping pitches in the woods, we also have spots in the woods and we rent out 9 safari tents, a caravan and a chalet. In the guesthouse we rent 4 luxury rooms and an apartment. 

Small-scale campsite with Dutch owners

The camping and inn at Le Grand Bois are run by Dutch people. We are Jolande Siepman and Eelco Grebel. We settled in France in 2005, after having lived in the center of Utrecht for many years. You will meet us regularly on the site. Do you have questions or comments? We would like to hear it. In any case, also check out our reservation conditions. Even if you want to write a review about your stay with us, we appreciate that very much. On the page The owners you can find more about us.
