Caylus

 

The campsite lies on the edge of  Caylus in the Tarn and Garonne region of southern France. Caylus is an unspoilt picturesque medieval town with a beautiful church, a chateau and winding characteristic streets framed by ancient buildings. The village is the regional hub of Caylus and has its own lake. There is a market twice a week, a bank, a post office, hotel, several shops, bakeries, butchers and souvenir shops. Naturally, there are several cafes and restaurants. In the summer there are many flea markets, night markets and other outdoor activities. The old town of Caylus is just 5 minutes walk from the campsite.

The nature around Caylus

For nature lovers the area around Caylus is a true paradise. During your walks and hikes, you’ll be amazed by the beauty that is on offer. The part of the Tarn and Garonne where Camping de la Bonnette is located is blessed with fantastic views of vast forests and sweeping valleys. Rolling hillsides abundant in flora and fauna, studded with vineyards and the famous Pigeoniers of the region, all bordered by miles of dry stone walls. It is a beautifully green area, in all senses of the word, with many wild orchids, rare flowers and birdlife.
