Remember to book online in advance …

Les Coudoulets campsite is located a few kilometres from this replica of the ornate cave of Pont d’Arc (known as the ‘Chauvet cave’) which opened on 25 April 2015, and which has already received over a million visitors.

On a 29-hectare site, you will discover the reconstruction of the cave and its paintings, drawings and engravings… But also an educational centre and a discovery centre which will help you understand how our ancestors lived at the time of the Aurignacian

The Pont d’Arc cave was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2014.

Discovered in December 1994 by three Ardèche speleologists, this cave has never been opened to the public in order to preserve this 36,000-year-old masterpiece of cave art.
