Why stay here ...

This exceptional site is a favourite among members thanks to its friendly staff, excellent amenities and lovely location. Set amid the rolling hill and countryside of Gascony, it offers generously sized, part-terraced pitches with rural views, and a range of activities, including a supervised pool area designed for families, tennis and an animal park.

The site can provide mapped walking and cycling routes, and the owners also find time to offer guided walks in between running their efficient site. La Romieu, which is a short walk from the site, is on the Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage route and has religious significance due to its collegiate church. The quiet lanes offer some wonderful cycling, although the terrain is hilly. Auch, with its UNESCO-listed cathedral and spectacular views of the Gers valley, is less than an hour’s drive.

Excellent !

Le Camp de Florence
A site we have visited many times, because it is a peaceful site, next to a lovely town, and is always spotlessly clean. The staff friendly and helpful. Ideal for caravan nd motor-homers as near restaurants, plus site restaurant and bar. Good for children in season, nice and quiet out of season, The thing that makes any venue/site extra special, are the owners and staff, and how they 'care' about their clients, or not ! We have always found the staff here excellent, but on this recent visit they really were exceptional, especially the owner Susan. I was taken ill and required taking to hospital by ambulance. Susan brought the on site medic who assessed me, and offered support, Susan arranged an ambulance to remove any confusion we might have had in relation to the procedure in their use in another country. I was kept in hospital whilst my wife had to stay on site alone, Susan and staff looked after my wife (who was obviously upset and worried about my being ill 2000km from home), she arranged taxis for both of us from the hospital, at different times, and offered support and comfort to my wife, whilst she was alone awaiting news of myself. I can only say that they stepped up to the mark and showed what a special site this is. Thank You ! We will keep going back !

Idyllic site in the heart of rural France

Le Camp de Florence
We arrived at 13:30 and as per most venues in France the Reception was closed for lunch until 14:00 . When reception opened we were greeted by a very pleasant young lady who spoke perfect English. We were invited to walk around the site and pick our own pitch from the ones that she indicated. We eventually chose pitch No11. Although the pitch appeared flat we soon found out that it had a slight slope and I had to use wooden blocks on the steadies to level up. Our pitch was also a service pitch . I was able to run water directly from the tap but again I was unable to run out the drainage pipes so we had to use the waste master but that was no real problem. There were two shower/toilet blocks on the site and both were cleaned regularly. Plenty of hot water and the shower cubicles are a good size washing up and laundry areas which also had lots of hot water and were regularly cleaned. The chemical waste points waste points were also located in the toilet/shower blocks and again were regularly cleaned and well maintained. There is also fee WiFi available The bar offered a good selection of lager beer, cider and wine. Rose seemed to be the local favourite.The restaurant offered an excellent menu which we found was well cooked and well presented. Whilst we were staying on the site there was limited entertainment but it was very good. The site is located approx 7 miles from Condom and is on the outskirts of a beautiful village of La Romieu. There is a small grocery shop in the village along with a bakery. The nearest supermarket that we found was an Intermarche at Condom which was well stocked and it also had petrol and diesel alongside it. We visited Auch with its UNESCO designated Cathedral. Auch is the Regional capital for the Gers formerly Gascogne. We also visited Condom and Agen, which was a really cosmopolitan city with its designer label shops so there are plenty of places to visit within the locality If you have children this site offers great childrens play areas. There are organised kids club events and plenty to occupy the kids. The only real negative point that I have to make is regarding the “Pool complex”, which is nothing more than an oversized paddling pool with a maximum depth of 1.2 metres and where you would be lucky to swim 3 strokes. It was also very busy, but I think the Caravan Club needs to revisit some of it’s site descriptions because it wasn’t the only site where the descriptions were, somewhat, exaggerated. The pool complex was really a cooling off facility, nothing more. Apart from the “pool complex” everything else was truly wonderful and this is a great site to visit. We will certainly return.

A site of exceptional quality ideally located very close to a delightful village.

Le Camp de Florence
We visited this site close about 8 miles from Condom in late September in our motorhome, having stayed here in a touring caravan in 2016 and 2017. It remains our favourite French campsite, due to its situation in unspoilt Gers within Gascogny, very close proximity to the pretty village of La Romieu, and the sheer high quality of the site. Since our last visit the terrace has been beautifully revamped, and WiFi covers pitches as well as communal areas. The food was excellent, and despite it being the last week before closing at the end of the season, all facilities and activities remained open and running unlike some sites we know. Our pitch was private, spacious and had 16A EHU, water and drainage. La Romieu (a 250m walk away) is charming, with an excellent bakery, convenience store (with a great wine and Armagnac section), and two bistro/restaurants. We will be back.

Great site

Le Camp de Florence
We stayed here for 12 nights end of July beginning of August. We had 2 adjacent (special) pitches. These are quite large, big enough for caravan, awning and car. They also had water supply and grey water drainage. The staff were all very courteous and spoke good English. Food in restaurant was good, . Bread and pastries cooked on site and could be ordered for next morning. Pool area was excellent for our grandchildren (8 and 5) very safe and lifeguard in attendance. They enjoyed the kids club and it took them off our hands for a couple of hours in the morning. Short walk into La Romieu, which has 2 bar/restaurants and a small shop/cave. The collégial is well worth a visit and a combined ticket for that and the Les Jardins de Coursiana is worth getting. Toilet facilities were good and kept very clean. There is an animal enclosure with donkeys and goats which the children enjoyed visiting. I would not hesitate to recommend this site.

nice site

Le Camp de Florence
A nice site with lovely walks around it. Some pitches quite buddy, but it had been raining quite heavily. A little chilly with some pitches a little difficult to access with larger units. Friendly staff, superb restaurant. Good tennis courts close by. Check the route given by satnav, one is much easier!
