Alan Rogers Review
This very welcoming family run site is set on the northern edge of Annot, a medieval village renowned for the Grès d’Annot, a chaos of massive sandstone boulders, which attracts both geologists and climbers from all over the world. La Ribère is a small site with only 60 pitches, 52 of which are for touring. The majority are level and mainly grassy, all have 10A electricity; those by the river bank are stony, so rock pegs may be useful. The bar/snack bar is open all season, serving delicious home-made pizzas at very reasonable prices. In low season, campers can get together in the convivial meeting room, heated by a wood burner.
There is no shop on site, only bread to order. However, there is a supermarket just 200 m. away, and the village with shops, bars, restaurants and all facilities is only a ten minute walk. There is also a municipal swimming pool in Annot. For those wishing to explore the area, the narrow gauge railway from Digne-les-Bains to Nice stops in Annot, and the line is also used on Sundays for steam train excursions to Puget-Théniers.
One new heated and very clean toilet block with facilities for babies and disabled visitors. Laundry with drying area. Motorcaravan services. Bread and pastries to order. Bar/snack bar with terrace (all season). Library. Meeting room (heated in low season). Small play area. Small football pitch. Boules. Communal barbecue area. No charcoal barbecues on pitches. Direct river access. Free WiFi throughout.
