Why stay here ...

Set amid lush countryside between the Atlantic Coast and the Pyrenees, Beau Rivage is a peaceful site with excellent facilities. Trees and bushes provide natural shade on the pitches, and facilities are very clean and well maintained.

The British owners, Richard and Wendy, are friendly and have an extensive knowledge of the local area. As a trained pizzaiolo, Richard makes fresh pizzas in the evenings and there are locally produced wines available to buy in reception.

The ancient bastide town of Navarrenx, just five minutes’ walk from the site, has a weekly market on a Wednesday and the museum is worth a visit. Keen cyclists will also enjoy riding through the quiet lanes around the campsite, while the river Gave d’Oloron is ideal for fishing and canoeing.

Charming site with exceptionally friendly and helpful staff

My wife and I stayed here for six days towards the end of September. Our holiday had been severely mucked up as my wife had a broken foot in plaster and was very immobile, but the welcome, practical help, advice and support from Richard and Wendy, and Alydia and Chris, was simply outstanding. The pitch we were given was the closest to the toilet and showers, if a bit awkward to access, and the landscaping, trees, shrubs and woods below the site, all made for a very pleasant overall location. In addition the very close proximity of the bastide of delightful Navarrenx, and virtually on the level (a blessing for the pushchair we rented from the local pharmacy), meant we were able to access the cafes, restaurants and most of the other facilities in the town centre. On Sunday the owners provide a superb Coq au Vin lunch in the marquee, with an aperitif, wine and dessert - very jolly and excellent quality. I think this is one of the very best campsites we have visited in France or Spain, despite its modest size and no on site cafe. But the charm, friendliness, character and location all justify the very high rating. We will be back.

Simply Beautiful

A wonderful site, friendly from the offset, next to a lovely walled town with great facilities. Great pitches and setting. Will definitely return. White water rafting in the river from the company just outside the site. Terrific!

Nice stop off

We stopped here for a night when touring France in our motorhome. The site is nice, although the pitches were on the small side compared to others. The owners and staff were friendly and helpful. The on-site pizza cabin was excellent - just the deal after a long drive - 5 stars for that Hopefully we will return and have time to look round the area, which was certainly nice to drive through If using a C&M satnav, in common with most sites we visited on our tour it was hopeless, with this being one of the worst - beware that it will try and send you up a dead end with a path to the camp site, which is fine if you are hiking, but useless if you are in a motorhome or towing a caravan. Follow the walls of the town round until you see yellow signposts for the site and it is a doddle to find

Very friendly

We stayed here for two nights on the way to Spain and one night on the way back, we have stopped here a few times in the past and I have to say that we love it. The staff here are nothing short of bloody brilliant and very friendly every time we have stayed they have been very helpful, the site is easy to find and well located for the Pyrenees Mountains it is clean and well appointed, small pool but very clean and usable, toilet blocks are a little dated but always clean, all in all a great little site that’s well worth visiting
