Welcome in the organic (bio) Drôme valley, at the crossroads of Southern Alps and Provence, at the foot of the Vercors!
On the river Drôme, walking distance from the picturesque and historical village of Saillans, Camping Les Chapelains ★★★ is a small family camping (49 pitches).
We welcome you for your stay on a camping pitch in a tent, campervan / motorhome or caravan. For optimal comfort, we offer Premium pitches with private sanitary facilities. You can also choose our rental accommodations (air-conditioned Cottage, Safari tent, Canvas Bungalow, Chalet, Coco Sweet, Lodge Tent…).
Far from the chains and groups that industrialize and standardize camping holidays, we give you an opportunity to recharge and to reconnect with your family, children, friends, lover, for a weekend or holidays.
Between Crest and Die and 45′ from Valence and Montelimar, come to enjoy the warmth and sunshine of southeastern France, in the shade of the poplars and on the banks of the Drôme river for a refreshing swim in the river, our natural swimming pool. Calm, warm atmosphere, relaxation, slow tourism: we want to make your stay unforgettable, because our best recognition will be to welcome you once again when you come back to Saillans at the campsite Les Chapelains ★★★.
Our region is a unique place for people who love nature, sport and outdoor activities: hiking, cycling (touring, racing, road, MTB), canoeing, rafting, canyoning, climbing. Perched villages, castles, Roman ruins, art, museums … The Drôme also offers you a cultural and historical heritage of unsuspected wealth. The lavender road is an invitation to discover the world of lavender in its production area. Farms, boutiques, museums, themed outings, gastronomy, etc…
At Camping Les Chapelains ★★★, our customers are not only consumers but also citizens concerned about the well-being of the planet or the defense of environmental and social causes. These values that we share bring us closer. We believe that as a company we can act for the economic, social, environmental and cultural development of our territory. In return, the dynamism of the territory contributes to the quality of the living environment, the availability of services and skills. A good way to attract new potential economic players partners, customers, suppliers. It is a virtuous circle!
Faced with mass tourism which has shown its excesses as its limitations, Camping Les Chapelains ★★★ supports the choice of the Département de la Drôme to orient its tourism strategy towards “Slow Tourism”. It is a kind of tourism where one takes the time for discovery, sharing, exchanging experiences and pleasure, combining respect for the environment, preservation of the local specificities and pleasure of travel.
The Drôme Valley extends over 45 municipalities that are part of the Biovallée, a reference territory in terms of sustainable development. Members of the Biovallée brand undertake to do their part to achieve the objectives of halving energy consumption, covering our needs through the production of renewable energies, purchasing locally, using ethical funds, etc. An interesting project to which Camping Les Chapelains ★★★ will be soon looking into.
We are happy to have received this label, after an audit conducted by Carole MARCEL from the Cœur de Drôme Tourist Office. As the first labeled campsite in the Drôme Valley, this label set up by France Velotourisme is a recognition of the services we provide to cyclists or cycle tourists. We like this mode of soft and sustainable mobility, consistent with our eco-responsible approach. We regularly welcome groups or families, who appreciate the diversity of routes and the beauty of the landscapes of our territory. Depending on your needs, we offer a tailor-made stay, with camping pitches or rental accommodation, secure storage for bicycles, as well as catering. We have invested over the past few years in accommodation suitable for touring cyclists, such as the Mini Tente Lodge, a budget accommodation that can be rented for just one night. This half-wood / half-canvas tent on the floor with a covered terrace is equipped with a bicycle shelter.
