Why stay here ...
Les Genêts is thrilled to celebrate their 50th anniversary in 2023 with all their visitors. The campsite was founded by Franck and Laure in 1973 and has since then become one of our members' favourite family campsites.
With a scenic setting on the shores of Lake Pareloup, the site is an excellent base to explore the Aveyron region which has a rich culture and history and lots of beautiful villages.
The site has a multinational, lovely feel and has lots to keep families entertained, from the lakeside beach and swimming pool to a full entertainment programme in peak season. The friendly staff, who speak fluent English, are very accommodating.
Nearby attractions include Millau, famous for its remarkable viaduct, and Rodez, which has an imposing Gothic cathedral and an interesting Fine Arts museum with many contemporary works. Both can be reached in under an hour.

Visited the site for the last 2 weeks in August. Unlike some members, we did secure the lakeside pitch we had paid-for and the setting was very good, especially as we were on the quieter side away from the swimming beach. Pitch size we found adequate for a 7.5 metre caravan and awning with good water/drainage on the pitch. Access to the pitch was very tight, with sharp turns and many obstructions from parked vehicles and vending stalls on the already narrow roads. Sanitary blocks a long walk away and were stretched initially and not particularly clean. This improved as the site got quieter. Good shop on site and staff we found very friendly and helpful. The lakeside location is clearly the main feature of the site and ideally suits those who prefer to "stay-put" and enjoy the lake. As a sightseeing base the site is too far to the west of the main attractions of the Tarn Gorge area and you find yourself driving 1 - 2 hours each way to visit anywhere from Millau eastwards. The latter drawback means that we would not return to the site.
