Campsite in Aveyron at Salles-Curan
Natural campsite near the lake of Pareloup in Occitanie
The 4-star campsite Parc du Charouzech, located in Aveyron, has 101 pitches including a PMR hut. It has an area of 1.9 ha. The campsite was created in 1995 on the lands of Charouzech. Le Charouzech was, more than a century ago, a very small farm lost in the middle of Aveyron. The farm was then about twenty hectares. During the Second World War, Valérie BELET, while her husband Joseph was at the front, acquired 164 hectares on her own. Following the end of the Second World War, the State launched the development of hydroelectricity in order to re-equip France in terms of energy, and this in conjunction with EDF. It was then that in 1946, EDF notably came to meet Joseph and Valérie BELET, owners of Charouzech, to announce to them that an artificial lake, Lac de Pareloup, was going to be created. For this, they were told that about 99 hectares of the farm would be submerged under water.
Gilles BELET, the son of Valérie and Joseph, recounted, not so long ago, the amazement that this enormous rise in water levels had created on recently purchased land. However, in the 1980s, the vision changed. Gilles, buyer of the Charouzech farm, and his wife Madeleine, then welcomed a few families wishing to camp by the water for a summer. The number of campers passing by and asking for the possibility of staying on their land for the night, gave rise to the idea of a camping.
Gilles and his son Joel, current operator of the Charouzech farm, then considered creating a 4-star campsite by the lake, on Charouzech land. This was the start of the adventure! The project was born in 1995. Today, the campsite is managed by Marie-Josée, manager of the campsite, the wife of Joel, who is fully dedicated to the development of the campsite. Time and future generations will continue the story...
