The place exudes serenity!

What a fantastic feeling to wake up to the chirping of birds!

Homely and warm welcome, just like at a friend's house!

What an incredible view!

Thanks for the exceptional atmosphere that prevails at Simondon.

Close to the  permanent circuits of l’Ardéchoise. At 1h20 from the magnificent VERCORS massif.

To access Plats from the A7 motorway, take the TAIN L'hermitage exit and cross the Rhône. Once you reach TOURNON-SUR-RHÔNE, take the direction of ST-PERAY at the first roundabout. At the 4th roundabout, take D219 to PLATS and follow the Ferme de Simondon campsite arrows.



There is intentionally no lighting on the campsite so you can admire the stars at night.

Be careful! Do not be fooled by GPS, which makes you go the wrong way. You must take the D219, especially if you have a caravan or camper.

If you are coming in a motorhome, please note that our treatment system does not allow the emptying of chemical toilets.
