The Chateau provides a perfect setting for your holiday. Château de Boisson has the unmistakeable style of Cevennes and Ardeches mansion-houses with its elegantly restored stonework. This is a 5 star campsite in the prestigious Les Castels chain of campsites. The site has excellent facilities to help you have a wonderful relaxing and enjoyable holiday with the possibilities for a good bit of interesting sight-seeing as well. The Pont du Gard roman aqueduct is a 45 minute drive away but well worth seeing.
