The Site

We are located half-way between Nice and Digne-les-Bains (about 75km from each city) on a small side road parallel to the D4202. Our campsite is on the edge of a private lake on the banks of the Var River.

By foot from the village of Entrevaux: along an easy 1.5km path that follows the Var River (not recommended for pushchairs with small wheels). The start of the path is just behind the town hall, at the Porte de France.

By car from the village of Entrevaux: follow the D4202 for about 4km to the Pont Noir. After crossing this bridge turn right onto a side road which goes back towards the village. It is signposted ‘Camping du Brec’ and ‘Intermarché’. Continue on this small easy road for about 2km. You will come to the lake and the campsite reception.
