La Source

France - Auvergne/Aveyron - Thérondels

Camping La Source

Camping La Source is a small four-star campsite, tranquilly set between lush green hills, by the shores of Lake Sarrans. The peninsula it rests on is full of wonderful hiking and biking tracks.

Why camping La Source ?

  • The campsite is positioned on beautifully terraced terrain, which ensures that you have an inspiringly beautiful view over the lake.
  • The sundrenched swimming pool looks over the lake and has a fantastic 40 metre long waterslide, which snakes its way down the hill. The little ones have their own separate toddlers pool.
  • For even more aquatic fun, head for the lake. Rent a canoe, a motor boat or a water bike. Go for a swim or climb, clamber and dive off the inflatable bouncy castles on the water. Fancy something different? Then go rowing or fishing. Alternatively try your hand at horse riding and mountain biking close by.
  • There's also a playground for the children, a volleyball terrain, table tennis, a petanque court, mini-golf and a tennis court.

Tip from the specialist:

"A small terraced campsite in the Aveyron region of France. Right by Lake Sarrans. Good fishing and swimming in the lake. Lovely pool with a view and a large water slide."

The surrounding area of La Source

The village of Thérondels is situated near a reservoir in the river Truyère, the Lake Sarrans. At Entraygues the river runs into the Lot but, before the water reaches this point, various levels have to be negotiated by the flowing waters. In France, these varying levels always meet to form a range of gorges and reservoirs that make for a great holiday destination. Here you are in the northern part of Aveyron.

Some tips for your holiday at La Source in Thérondels

  • The river passes through huge gaps in the rock formations south of the Auvergne plateau, so the volcanoes of the Mont du Cantal are worth a visit.
  • The city of Aurillac is about an hour's drive away.
  • South of St-Flour the river widens into a large water sports area where you will have impressive views of the 'Viaduct du Garabit', which is a 45 minute drive away.
  • The former fortress of the Count of Carladez, Mur-de-Barrez, is just a 20 minute drive away. It used to be home to the princes of Monaco from 1643 to 1791. The remains of its colourful past can be clearly seen in the towns intriguing architecture.
  • Take the family on one of the amazing ‘Fantasy Walks!’ A hiking track that combines art, nature, culture and history. You can pick up a map from reception and the 6 different routes are between 10-30 minutes away by car.
  • Biking fans can enjoy the 15 mountain bike tracks and 18 cycling routes close by. The challenging mountain bike track starts at the campsite and has a 645 metre rise and descent. The cycling route is 110 km long, with roughly 1733 metres of climbing and descending. There are also far easier tracks for beginners close by.
