Campsite L'Hippocampe

Located in an enchanting landscape at the heart of Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, Hippocampe boasts top of the range amenities which will guarantee you a dream holiday!

This 4 star facility in Volonne welcomes you at 430m above sea level, right next to a lake full of birds. In Volonne, you're only 11km from Sisteron, 25km from Forcalquier and 45km from the Verdon gorges.

Welcome to the heart of this veritable village of 11 hectares, full of olive and cherry trees! Hippocampe has fantastic beaches and a large amount of green space around its swimming pools with its famous slides. It can welcome children peacefully to the kid's club, and also boasts a dance floor and a stage dedicated to Zumba and fitness.

A four star site worthy of the name, it offers a large range of amenities (restaurant, pizzeria, grocery, TV, services for the disabled, bakery, tourist information, disco, library, etc.) By offering you magnificent views over the valleys and the lake, its idyllic countryside begs you to go swimming or fishing.

In high season, leave the fun to entertainment adapted for each person.

Spend your time hiking, doing water sports, partying (in the cabaret or disco), strolling around the Mercantour mountain or the activities in the surrounding area (mountain biking, pétanque, accrobranche, horse riding, climbing, pony club etc.).

Tourist guide

Discover Haute-Provence through its fresh and mountainous terrain, as well as its incredible cultural history. Two steps from Volonne, take a walk in Sisteron to admire the natural beauty of this place nestled in a glacier.

In the South, guided by swan song, visit the City of Riez which stands out because of its Merovingian-era baptistary. Drawn by the fragrance of rosemary and lavander, follow the trails of Manosque, the city of Jean Giono. Go through the Sauneries and Soubeyran doors to get to the old town of Manosque, a picturesque place absolutely full to bursting with history and sunlight. In the North of Volonne, the town of Gap is the departure point for excursions in the neighbouring mountains. Don't miss the magnificent black marble mausoleum in Duc de Lesdiguières. Take the Verdon Gorge path, green and wild, where the waters have always shaped the surrounding countryside. From there, follow the black truffle route or even the Olivier path. Right at the heart of the Verdon regional park, with the Lubéron regional park right next door, you won't be missing out on walks and contact with flora and fauna. The towns of Digne and de Moustiers in the East are great to visit, especially de Moustiers, known for its top of the range earthenware. The magnificent artificial body of water in Saint-Croix is great to see, as well as the Colorado in the West. At more than 1000m above sea level, you'll discover the ochre paths with nature trails and belvederes. The nearby southern motorway makes trips to Orange, Avignon or Salon de Provence easy...
