“All for one and one for all!” A monument of The Three Musketeers in Condom, France reminds all who visit of that popular cheer. Yes, the boys continue to be fascinated by D’Artagnan and The Three Musketeers. So, we’re here.
On the 7th day of our family camping road trip this year, we move onwards and downwards from camping in the cold and wet Pyrenees mountains to the land of the Three Musketeers.
The Cathedral of Saint Pierre of Condom provides a picturesque backdrop ro the monument of the musketeers. It also piques the interest of our kids, as they roam inside in silence looking at the religious relics and artwork, and even light a candle for our dead, as they usually do when visiting churches.
And here in Condom is where we discover the beauty and practicality of municipal camping French style (or “camping municipal” in French).
Municipal Camping L’Argente is not only clean, spacious, quiet and cheaper than average at 23 euros for a family of 4 (2 kids), a pitch that is big enough for a 3-person tent, a car and 2 times over, during peak summer season.
It also has limited FREE access to the municipal swimming pool next door, with super slitthery slides for 3 hours of fun in the sun.
The camping municipal is also located next to an island-park that’s ideal for a walk among the greenery and a skate/bike-park for anoher day of fun for the kids.
Based on one week of camping our confidence level is up whether campgrounds are open or not and if social distancing would be a problem.
Next: We’llreturn to our improvisational ways of unplanned camping road trip stop at Bergerac as we explore yet another musketeer site that we learned about from Poles we met in Codom
