Le Courounba is a member of the Campéole group, located at the entrance to the magnificent Parc National des Ecrins. Pitches are shady and spacious, dispersed around 12 hectares of woodland. Many of the 160 touring pitches have superb views of the surrounding mountain scenery. Ninety mobile homes for rent (including specially adapted units for disabled campers). There is also a new ecological swimming pool with water slides and watergames and other on-site amenities include two tennis courts and a volleyball pitch. Most facilities are free of charge (including tennis). Adjacent to the site is a friendly bar/restaurant and a small, basic shop during high season only.
There is dramatic mountain scenery all around. The Mont Brison is the highest limestone rock face in France and the Mont Pelvoux, at 3,943 m. has an all year snow cap. Le Courounba is on the banks of the River Gyronde, popular for-fishing. A little further afield, Briançon is a superb town, fortified by Vauban and well worth a visit.
