Why stay here ...

An attractive, well-tended site, Le Bontemps is situated in beautiful parkland along the Varèze River. It's popular for both stopovers and longer stays, offering an excellent range of facilities and large pitches arranged in groups and partially separated by neat hedges. There are also several useful ‘stop and go’ pitches for overnight stays.

A large heated pool with slides is ideal for the whole family to relax, and there’s an extensive list of activities available in summer. You can also fish in the site's own carp pond.

The nearby town of Vienne has a prestigious history, with several impressive Roman monuments including the Temple d’Auguste et de Livie built in around 20 BC and an amphitheatre, which is still used today. Lyon and Valence are also both within an hour’s drive, and the Côtes du Rhône vineyards can also be reached by car.

warning of poor facilities

Le Bontemps
Just stayed overnight at this site and have done so over 20 years. On arrival on the 27th july there was no wifi, the electric point needed 2 x 25 cables, could not use the water tap on pitch as it was faulty. The bar was closed. The onsite restaurant was closed, the onsite shop was closed. The chemical waste toilet broken. The whole site was near empty (not surprised) and it looked very unkempt. Cannot blame covid as we came from another Kawan site that had everything open and was full.

So good we stayed there twice in one trip!

Le Bontemps
Excellent. Despite turning up in the low season, food and drink still available. The coldest beer in three weeks of testing across Europe. The "Stop & Go" plots are an excellent idea. Beware of getting lost in Vernioz. Rush hour and a rubbish sat nav made it a.challenge. Worth the effort though.

Night Stop

Le Bontemps
Used for night halt, difficult to get to from north, ACSI, club website and Caravan Europe all give different directions. Seemed like miles down country lanes. Some nice pitches but ours was only ok. Nice swimming pool. Easier to return to motorway if heading south as there is what i think is a new junction on southern side. Probably wouldn't use again unless staying longer doesn't merit the effort of getting there!

Stopover

Le Bontemps
This was a stopover en route to the Ardeche. The fabilities we saw were OK. Nothing special. Extremely loud music suddenly started about 7pm continuing until about 11pm which wasn't great. We were met in reception by a young man who seemed too busy to shut down and go home to fill us in with details of the site. An OK stay.
