Since its foundation, La Garangeoire has been a member of Les Castels, (4-stars and 5-stars) outdoor sites in France. All exceptional sites where space dominates! When staying with us, you’re not in an ordinary place – you’re invited by the owner!
Since 2019, you can discover Le French Time, a collection of campsites for unique experiences in France, created by the union of Les Castels and Sites et Paysages campsites. Read the video in english : bit.ly/lefrenchtime-en
Veritable “guest campgrounds,” the Les Castels sites have preserved the art of entertaining, as each owner is intent on offering you a familial and warm reception. Each Castel’s specific ambiance gives it its soul, which will envelop you throughout your stay. This soul is also based on mutual respect between the campers and the properties’ staff members.
It’s a shared spirit that makes it possible to showcase beauty and serenity at our campgrounds.
Art of life
Respectful of our heritage and passionate about our environment, our philosophy is not to impose a model but rather to preserve our authenticity. Our art de vivre means combining these principles while striving for harmony, elegance and simplicity.
The Castels campsites are located amidst magnificent landscapes. They’re also the expression of a preserved heritage; historic properties where hundred-year old trees thrive, where water runs peacefully, where the word ‘picturesque’ takes on all its meaning, human activity blends in perfectly with nature…and where you’ll experience one-of-a-kind holidays

Guests with disabilities
People with disabilities are very welcome on our campsite La Garangeoire. Our goal is for you to spend enjoyable holidays with all the family. Hence La Garangeoire is adapted for people with any type of disability.
Since the law of 11 February 2005 on the equal rights and opportunities, participation and citizenship of persons with disabilities, institutions receiving public (ERP) must be accessible to all types of disabilities.
We have developed a campsite to create optimal autonomy for the disabled.Therefore in 2011 we were awarded the label “Tourisme & Handicap” for mental, visual and hearing disabilities. The label for physical disabilities was given to us in 2015.
In March 2015, we filed our accessibility certificate, that complies with the legal French standards. This enables people with disabilities to move with the greatest possible autonomy, to access the premises and equipment, to use equipment and services and communicate.
The new specifications of “Tourisme & Handicap” imposed a quota of adapted accommodation that has created difficulties for a seasonal camping activity.We have made the choice to give up this label while continuing our efforts and investments to improve the reception of people with disabilities.
All our facilities are accessible: reception, aquatic centre, bar, restaurant, grocery store, entertainment area, games room, toilets. The multisport court and the tennis courts are very easily accessible.
The foot basin at the entrance of our aquatic centre is wheelchair accessible. We have installed an “Aquasiège” chairlift system that aids access to the main heated swimming pool.
The lagoon, go-karts and the lakes brings some difficulty for wheelchairs, due to significant slopes and unpaved roads.
People with disabilities do not hesitate to ask at the reception, while the reception staff is able to drive there by electric car.
The mobile home “life” is specifically designed for disabled guests. It is equipped with a ramp for wheelchair access and offers an ergonomic design for ease of use by those of reduced mobility. The mobile home guarantees high autonomy.
Two chalets located in close proximity to Reception and all necessary services have level
flooring and are particularly adapted for those of limited mobility.
60 pitches for tents, caravans and mobile-homes are very easily accessible.
The four sanitary blocks have cubicles provided for persons of limited mobility. The toilets, showers and washbasins are largely autonomous (shower with fold away seat, toilet with grab rails …)
For the hearing impaired, we have a system installed at the reception; in order to facilitate communication.
Guide dogs are allowed on campsite La Garangeoire without extra costs.
During the entire period that the campsite is open there is a responsible contact available 24/7.
From mid-May to mid-September there is a night-watchman who patrols the site.
The night-watchmen and the reception staff responsible have the appropriate first aid qualifications.
Les gardiens de nuit et responsables de réception sont habilités « PSC1-Premiers secours » ou « Sauveteurs secouristes du travail ».
An automatic defibrillator is available on the front of the night-watchman’s chalet.
Partnership Action Enfance
In order to regularly improve our activities and our services, we send a short questionnaire to record our levels of customers’ satisfaction and their comments on “La Garangeoire”.
For each completed questionnaire, La Garangeoire will make a donation of 1 € to ACTION ENFANCE which is an association whose aim is child welfare in France and offers to the children separated from their parents a stable, educational and protective environment. They are welcomed in children’s villages and live as a community in houses, supervised by educators.
Les Castels channel has supported Action Enfance since 2017, by welcoming childrens’ association in different campsites to offer unforgettable holidays. To learn more about Action Enfance, please refer to the site actionenfance.org/.
