Camping le Petit Bois
Campsite Le Petit Bois is nestled on the Ardèche river banks, near the medieval town of Ruoms, in the heart of Ardèche.
Located just opposite the ‘défilés de Ruoms’ (a scenic route hewn out of the mountainside) and close to the famous Gorges de l'Ardèche, the campsite has a calm, natural setting that’s a great base for exploring this iconic area.
There’s great facilities on site, such as the swimming pool that is heated in low season. There’s also a sports ground, bar and restaurant.
If you’re feeling adventurous there’s endless sporting activities nearby, from swimming to canyoning, rock climbing, and of course canoeing is a fantastic way to explore the beautiful Ardèche river.
The whole region is renowned for its mild Mediterranean climate and pristine rivers – four in total – perfect for sports-lovers and swimmers alike. The village of Ruoms, just half a mile from the campsite, stands at the confluence of three of the most beautiful rivers of southern Ardèche: Ardèche, La Beaume and Le Chassezac.
Wine lovers will enjoy a visit to Néovinum to try the local wines.
The Cirque de Gens is a natural wonder in the Ardèche. It is a great place to walk, swim and one of the biggest climbing sites in the region.
From the pleasant village of Vallon-Pont d’Arc (4 mi) you can explore the Ardèche Gorges and Pont d’Arc. If you can tear yourself away from the gorges for a while, visit the Grotte Chauvet, one oldest painted caves in the world. Inhabited 32,000 years ago, it’s decorated with fantastic cave paintings.
