Camping Le Clos Auroy, Rue de la Narse, 63670 Orcet, Tel 0473842697
To Find Site:- From either north or south leave A75 Autoroute at junction 5 and take D213 towards Orcet. At roundabout continue onto D52, take first left and continue across low river bridge and site is next right. (the site is signed on the D52)
This excellent site is a very convenient stop off the A75 just south of Clermont Ferrand. Although built on a side of a hill access to pitches is good and all are level. There are two toilet blocks of high quality, They have a mix of Turkish and English toilets. The chemical loo disposal is a bit Heath Robertson but works fine. The pitches are laid out along the tarmac roads and are of a good size and most are delineated by high hedges. There are also several pitching areas set back a bit from the site road which I suspect are used for those customer staying more than one night. Electrics are available to all pitches and you can have either 5 or 10 amp. Reception has some information on the local area. There is a bar but this seems only to be open in the high season. Although not large there is a very nice pool complex. This campsite gives a discount to holders of the ACSI Card.
The centre of the small town of Orcet is a short (uphill) walk from the site. There are several shops for bread and essential supplies, although there are also several supermarkets in the vicinity. Every day except Monday a baker calls at the entrance to the campsite. There are many opportunities for sight seeing from Le Clos Auroy.
