Off-peak holidays in Alpes de Haute Provence

The advantages of off-peak holidays are multiple.  To start with, you’ll benefit from the exclusive offers and low prices. With pleasant temperatures and more than 280 days of sun per year, nothing can be more appreciated than enjoying the peace and nature during the low season in Provence. In Spring, days are getting longer, and the weather is very nice, we also benefit from the Indian summer before the arrival of the autumn and winter time.

You’ll find all services to facilitate your stay; bar, restaurant, bread service with fresh bread and pastry, the water park with heated swimming pools, waterslides and a children’s pool for the smallest. All of this in a peaceful and calm atmosphere.

At the border of the river

Sunêlia l’Hippocampe is situated along the Durance, a river with banks rich in birdlife. By being a RSPB refuge, the campsite is in the centre of the bird sanctuary of de Haute Provence where you may observe 140 bird specimens at different moments of the year.

At dawn the squirrels come out of their nest to look for something to eat and towards the evening, you’ll observe the activities of beavers and nutrias at the riverside.

You can entirely devote yourself to fishing from the border of the river at the campsite: trout, carp, pike… will be present at the meeting.

Move in the open air

Temperatures in the low season allow activities in the open air all over the year. We really are privileged.

Tracking and wandering

As temperatures are very pleasant, wandering really is a pleasure in Spring and after the summer. Numerous hiking trails are accessible with a departure from the campsite.

Mountain biking, cycling, electric biking

Beautiful circuits in the hills around the campsite are at your disposal. What about a nice trip with an electric bike on the mountain of Lure, with a picnic in your backpack, to be savoured at the top?

You will have a 360° view on the Alps, the Mont Ventoux, the low Alps and the lavender fields of Valensole.

The scene is breath-taking! In the middle of cherry trees, apple orchards and apricot trees, the blossoming transports you to a Wonderland.
