On the farm
Set in 65 acres of beautiful lanscape in the heart of the Cévennes National Park in south-central France, the campsite of Cassagnac offers a great camping experience, with 6 traditional yurts for rental on a weekly basis or for shorter stays.
In 2011, our region was selected as a UNESCO world heritage.

The campsite provides a wide range of local products, such as home-made dishes, patés made of pork, poultry or lamb, marmelades, honey, fruit juices, liqueurs...
A few historical elements on Cassagnas (693m high)
The word Cassagnas comes from cassé meaning green oak tree
and sagnas meaning spring.
The village is situated in a valley scattered with chestnut and oak trees. A little river called the Mimente paves the way for the travellers to the village.
A legion of French Protestants called the Camisards had their barracks in caverns nearby. They were men of religious beliefs ; they spent their time singing and reciting psalms, when not at war.
Until today, the inhabitants of Cassagnas have been faithful to protestantism.
