Alan Rogers Review

This attractively landscaped, terraced site (English spoken) offers stunning views across the lake to the hills beyond. There are 123 good sized pitches, 120 for touring, which are thoughtfully laid out and separated by young trees and flowering shrubs. Most have grass and hardstanding. Forty-five have their own water point and most have 10A electricity. The reception, bar/restaurant and the pool complex are at the top of the site with a gently sloping road down to the lower terraces and lake. At the lowest part of the site is a large grassy area next to the lake for sunbathing and activities. Twin-axle caravans are not accepted.

There is plenty to do in the area including touring the mountains and gorges of the Jura region on foot, by bike or car and there are interesting old towns with their markets offering local produce.
