Alan Rogers Review

This beautifully kept, small, family orientated campsite was recently acquired by a young, enthusiastic couple. It is surrounded by delightful scenery, not far from Lac du Bourget. Beside the site is a small lake which is fed by springs and has a small sandy beach ideal for swimming and playing around in small boats. The site has 120 average to large sized, grass pitches with 90 for touring. There are 80 with 16A electricity (long leads advised). They are numbered and marked by very small trees with a few having some shade. This site is ideal for families who are happy to make their own entertainment.

This is a lovely setting and the site has some very good facilities. There have been some upgrades to the site including a new reception building and a kiosk by the lake for drinks and snacks. The site is ideally suited for exploring this Alpine lake district on foot, by bike or by car. There are chalets, tents and four delightful new wooden wagons available to rent.


Excellent newly refurbished sanitary block with all necessary facilities including those for babies and disabled campers. Motorhome services. Very basic shop. Bar (1/7-30/8). Takeaway snacks (1/7-30/8). Fishing. Lake bathing. Organised walks and bike rides. Covered games area. Boules. TV room. Play area. Some family entertainment in high season. WiFi (free).
