Time in Puimichel
You wish to spend a pleasant holiday in a quiet campsite situated in the countryside where you will discover plenty of space and hospitality, then we can welcome you to the warmth of Camping Les Matherons near Puimichel in the heart of the Alpes of Haute Provence.We are open from April 20th to October 1st.The campsite is situated in the depth of the countryside, 550 metres in height, about 800 metres from the quiet public road D12 between the village of Puimichel ( 2 ½ km) and the little town of Oraison (10 km). This is a region of valleys with many forests and much brushwood; the land is hardly cultivated and so it is very poor. The only crops are corn, sage and lavender (which blooms splendidly end June/early July). To really relax, watch the birds and unknown flowers, the campsite is a feast for eyes and ears. Above all, in the Spring, nature is very beautiful and the temperature is already very agreeable at this time of the year. On the site, most pitches are established on the edges of two fields, each field about 15,000 sq.m. completely surrounded by oak trees; we have made places for sitting, if you wish to sit in the shade. We have also created some isolated pitches, some of them you can only reach on foot. All the pitches have electricity (3A), except some isolated pitches.The site is car-free, only on arrival and departure the cars are allowed on the site, in the meantime you can park them on a special field, just before the campsite.The campsite is not suitable for all campers. Among other things, you will not find lighting on the site (except in the sanitary block) and there are no smooth-surfaced roads. Music and noisy activities are not wanted. People who are nervous of large grasshoppers or lizards will not be happy here. For nature-lovers, who enjoy everything that grows, flowers and moves and who really appreciate PEACE and FREEDOM, the campsite is an eldorado. You will feel united with the flora and fauna. The muted sounds of nature can be heard day and night.If you go for a walk here, you can smell the wild plants like thyme and rosemary and you are surrounded by the chirping of crickets and other insects. All over the region there are many paths (not marked) which are easy to negotiate on foot (strong shoes are advised). You can get by us the description of more than 65 walking-maps, several cycling-maps and car-maps. Some hikes start at the campsite, for others you have to take your car first. The only problem is the daytime temperature in high season. In Provence it can be pretty warm! Otherwise it is a Continental climate, nights and early mornings are fairly fresh. But you will very quickly adapt to it. There are also opportunities for keen cyclists.You will not only find quiet and space at Les Matherons campsite, but also at the centre a very fine and large, well-kept, sanitary block. There is a washing-machine, which you can use for a little sum of money.
