We planned to stay for a few nights but ended up staying a week! Lots of space around the open field with shaded options if preferred. Peaceful site with very helpful, hands on owners. Sanitaire located in a very old farm building so facilities are a bit limited but clean and good. Old Sisteron is a must to visit and the local commercial centre has everything you need. Cycling is good once away from the main road, although quite hilly in places. We shall definitely return. One of our nicest pitches with plenty of room and wonderful sunset views over the mountains.

Centre Pardigue is a small, friendly naturist campsite near the historic town of Sisteron in the Haute Provence. You will be made very welcome by Ria, the charming Dutch owner, who speaks excellent English. The thirty large pitches (with 4 amp electricity) are around the edge of a big level open field with stunning views of the mountains: the peace and quiet are only disturbed by a nightingale and the purring of turtle doves – a haven of pure nature. If you’re looking for a restaurant, disco or animations you won’t find them here - but you can help yourself from a fridge-freezer stocked with ice creams and drinks, note what you’ve had in an “honesty” booklet and pay the following day when you collect your bread, which is ordered the day before and is delicious – probably the best baguettes we’ve ever had. Once a week Ria organises a communal “bring and share” meal, when everyone contributes one dish for all to sample, and a pizza van calls once a week. The facilities are basic but clean, and the pool/wifi area is relaxed and regulation-free. Wifi costs €5 for an unlimited number of devices and for an unlimited time.
Six miles away is a large supermarket and an excellent launderette, and the old town of Sisteron is a must to visit.
If coming from the A51, the best approach is from Sortie 23 on the motorway, and access to the site on the D951 is easy.
This charming site is true naturism in every sense of the word – quite delightful!

This is a beautiful and quiet camp site in the beautiful Provence countryside. You can be sure of a warm welcome from Ria, the owner, who has over 24 acres of land for you to wonder round. You can walk naked to the river or through the woods, or lounge by the
pool if it gets too hot. The site is also a good alternative for paraglider/hang-glider pilots visiting La Chabre, or sailplane pilots using Vaumeilh. When it's too hot for good thermals to form you can sunbathe here instead!

Though I only stayed one night, I can honestly say it was a very special one. Ria was a fantastic host and and all the other guests made me most welcome. Special thanks to Han and Ineke for the warmth and compassion for a lonely biker.
The setting is superb and layout agreable. A special place I shall treasure.

This is a very good well run and friendly site. Mainly Dutch visitors, but English spoken by most visitors and the owners. Not a lot of shade on the site, which means that the views of the surrounding mountains are spectacular.
The area is worth visiting - Sisteron in particular.
