Camping Sunêlia l'Hippocampe

Campsites - Haute Provence - Volonne

In the heart of the Haute Provence, surrounded by the Nature Parks of the Verdon, the Luberon, the Mercantour and the Mont Ventoux, the 5-star campsite Sunêlia l'Hippocampe with its aquatic park, 2 heated pools, slides, jacuzzi and wading pool welcomes you in a peaceful and preserved environment near Volonne, a small Provençal village.

This 5-star campsite is well known for its quality entertainment.

Since the 2017 season, the campsite partners with Music-hall artists. You can enjoy professional cabarets and shows during your stay.

The programme of daily activities has also been re-tweaked for this coming season: new and original activities will be offered and each day will have a specific theme, which you will find everywhere - during the day, in the evenings, at the bar and restaurant and in the children's clubs. And for the young ones, a new area for the children's clubs has been laid out.

The Hippocampe is situated on the banks of the Durance river. The Durance Nautique leisure parks offers you rentals of canoes, pedal boats, small crafts and electric boats. There you can also take the optimist and SUP courses. Or enjoy a day of fishing. The campsite is also the ideal departure point for exploring the immense and varied natural areas: the gorges of the Verdon, the emerald lakes, geological reserves, lavender fields...
