Camping le Papillon
Welcome on the website of our campsite.
What a wonderful live we have………give people a nice time!
Since the year 2009 we do that with pleasure on our campsite. From our guests’ feedback, we conclude that this is mutual.
Our small campsite (41 pitches) is situated in a beautiful area. This has so much to offer that a lot of people have not looked after the surroundings after a first stay. This is not strange because the surroundings are very various. The Gorges du Tarn, de la Dourbie and de la Jonte have each their natural beauty. Inbetween the Gorges there are the Causses. These are fairly flat areas between the Gorges. In a radius of 40km there are several picturesque villages. Also the highest viaduct of Europe nearby Millau is easy to visit from our campsite.
For the sports enthusiast there is also plenty to do. There are many hiking trails in this region. We have a number of booklets with routes. Both the beginner and the experienced hiker find a suitable route. The geochacher can also enjoy himself in the area.
For cyclists this is a little more difficult. There is a great bike ride here, but not if your condition is low.
Going to Millau is easy to cycle along the river Tarn. Upstream, that is another story. Great for the sporty cyclist, but for most seniors it’s a bit too difficult. Nowadays, with electrical support, it is also good to cycle this way.
If you have become tired of the journey or the trips in the area, you can also stay at the campsite.
With the views from your pitch, you do not have to be bored. According to many guests, the view is like a “living painting”.
It’s nice if shopping does not take too much time. In Riviere sur Tarn (3km) you will find a small supermarket. Here you can buy all your first life needs. The lively town of Millau is 11km from the campsite. Here you will find many big supermarkets. Two times a week there is a market in Millau where you can buy regional products. Lots of guests come back with Aligot or other products.
Aligot is a mix of cheese and mashed potatoes. Very lovely!!
On the campsite there is a restaurant where you can eat or drink something. We are
not going for a Michelin-
We hope you will enjoy watching are website and we hope to see you in the future.
