The Festival of Espenan

Early August, 2020

(Date to be published on the website and in our social media pages)


This historic festival captures the real story of the seventeenth century war between the Spanish and the French. It’s an all day event going on till late evening. Soldiers arrive on horseback for a magnificent display of horse maneuvering, this is called the cavalcade.  Count Roger de Bossost of Espenan, an emblematic figure of the region shows his face in a very theatrical play, performed by professional actors and is translated so everyone can enjoy the story. The whole performance is played out on the site of the actual remains of the castle of Espenan. We dine together, a traditional meal of the time, whilst the actors perform and capture your imagination. Traditional dances and music throughout the evening and all end in a fabulous firework display.


Bastille day - La fête nationale 

July 14, 2020


The French National Day is the anniversary of the Storming of the Bastille on 14 July 1789, a turning point of the French Revolution, as well as the Fête de la Fédération which celebrated the unity of the French people on 14 July 1790. 


A national holiday in France on July 14th is celebrated at the campsite with many surprises. The children are fully entertained by the animation team with all kinds of fun games on the campsite. In the evening there is a joint meal with music and a fireworks show. This is a fun day for all ages!

Festival Samba repercussion

July 16 - 19, 2020


Every 2 years the Samba répercussion festival is held in Monléon-Magnoac, 2 km away from the campsite. A weekend full of Brazilian music and street shows. There is plenty to do and experience such as dance, percussion and capoeira workshops. The organisation of the festival is of great importance because it brings a multitude of people and local produce together as well as reminding us of the ecology, peace and respect for one another. You will most certainly feel and experience these aspects at this festival.

Within a radius of approximately 65 km (depending on the route, which will be published on our website and social media pages when we have it) it is possible to watch the Tour de France. A true delight for fans of this sporting event, even if you're not a fan of cycling, the atmosphere it creates is not to be missed, a great family day out.
