Alan Rogers Review

Val de Coise is a member of the Campéole group and is situated in the undulating landscape of the Massif Central, north of Saint Etienne. It is an attractive site located between the River Coise and a dense forest. Of the 72 grassy pitches, 30 are for tourers (28 with 16A electricity); a further 20 house mobile homes, chalets and fully equipped tents to rent. There is plenty of activity here in high season with a children’s club and regular discos and karaoke evenings. This is rugged, dramatic country – ideal for walking and mountain biking. The nearby spa town of Saint Galmier is home to the Badoit water plant, a casino, restaurants and a number of art galleries.

The Badoit plant has guided tours available and locals refill their water bottles from the source of this naturally sparkling spa water. In Saint Galmier guided walks are organised by the local tourist office, both a town trail and in the surrounding forests, and the Monts du Forez and Monts du Lyonnais are within easy access. Given its location, close to France’s geographical centre, this site may be a good option for an en route overnight stop.
