Camping Aux Mêmes Small family run 3 star Gascony campsite with views of the Pyrenees
We moved to France in 2003 to create our campsite at Aux Mêmes, once a typical Gascony farm. Aux Mêmes lies near the village of Bellegarde in the Department of the Gers. The Gers is one of the thirteen Departments of the Occitanie region and is just south of the Dordogne.
‘Aux Mêmes’ doesn’t translate well but the old Occitan name ‘Los Memos’ or in English ‘the memories’ is more meaningful.
The hill-top farmhouses and campsite all have views of the Pyrenees and surrounding countryside and are set in 10 hectares (22 acres) of rolling farmland. Most of the land at Aux Mêmes is still farmed today, the rest being made up of several woods and a small vineyard.
Our aim is to provide a relaxed friendly environment where everyone can enjoy a stress free break and take home some wonderful memories of their own.
As campers and caravaners ourselves we have tried to incorporate all the best attributes and more of the sites we’ve visited over many years.
We pride ourselves on the quality and cleanliness of our facilities and we are constantly updating and improving within the cosy atmosphere of a site with less than 30 pitches.
We serve food that is freshly cooked and where possible with local produce including eggs from our own hens and we have bread and patisserie delivered fresh each morning from a local baker.
We have a good selection of local French wines and beers on draught that we are proud to serve.
All our services, food and drinks are reasonably priced.
We love live music so each summer we host free open air concerts one or two evenings per week with local and touring artists of various nationalities and musical genres.
The area has a mild stable climate with plenty of sunshine and offers something for everyone; vibrant markets with fresh local produce, such as foie gras and Armagnac (reputedly the oldest brandy in the world); several thermal spa towns; the historic towns of Auch and Toulouse; scenic rides to the Pyrenees, Biarritz on the coast and less than 100 kms to Spain.
Nearby there are tennis courts, golf courses, horse riding and water sports including fishing, canoeing, kayaking, wind surfing and sailing.
Camping Aux Mêmes has been inspected and selected by “Cool Camping” as one of their top 100 campsites in France. It is also one of ANWB's and ACSI's inspected sites and is recommended by the Caravan Club.
The campsite is open from April to September and there is also a farmhouse Gite available to rent.
English, French and German are spoken.
