About this campspace #s003849

Small rural site with views overlooking the Aveyron hills
Near Aubrac Regional Natural Park; five minutes' drive from Murols
Direct access to a river; 15 minutes from the Château de Valon
La Forêt du Dragon may be small in scale, but it certainly punches above its weight in terms of scenic rural surrounds. There are fruit trees all around this leafy site, with a small garden to admire (and tend if you wish) at each and every pitch.

There's plenty of water around keeping this ground green and grassy, including a small stream that can be directly accessed from the site. Mightier nearby rivers include the Goul and the Truyère, and that's without counting the dozens of lakes in nearby Aubrac Regional Natural Park. (Good news for paddling fans, then, or those looking to hike among this area's lush foliage.)

La Forêt du Dragon may be free of fire-breathing monsters, but there's a sculpture park in nearby Murols (five minutes' drive) with many other weird and wacky beasts. The hilltop ruins of the Château de Valon are also close by (15 minutes), so it's easy to imagine how dragons could feel at home in this part of the world…

Back at base, there's a small food shop selling fresh local produce; for bigger food shops, head to one of the supermarkets within a 20-minute drive of the site. Dogs are welcome here.

Meet Marjolein, your host

Hi, I am Marjo and I am very exited about nature and to build a sustainable future together. Therefore I create a food forest with the name La foret du Dragon. It is a terrain in the mountains of France. In this place I made little basecamps where it is possible to stay outside in nature.
