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 farm produces goat milk made into cheese using quality certified organic farming technique.

 

The flock will soon be composed of 35 goats.

The production of cheese will start in 2013 as well as the raising and processing of pork.

 

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.
