Alan Rogers Review
Le Pirot is an attractive, rather basic site on an island in the River Lesse, on the edge of the pleasant village of Han. Because of the access, it is more suitable for small caravans, motorhomes and tents. Camping de La Lesse, its sister site nearby, caters for larger units. Bars, restaurants and shops are within walking distance of both sites. There are just 18 grass pitches for touring units, 17 with electric hook-ups, and two areas for tents. There are views across both branches of the river.
A tourist tram takes visitors from the village to the famous caves of Han-sur-Lesse and the tourist office offers bicycle hire and has information about cycling and walking routes, and a wide variety of attractions in the area. The Parc de Chevetogne, less than 20 km. away, has lakes with canoeing, forest activities, themed gardens, an aquarium, riding, a swimming pool, restaurants, minigolf, a children’s farm and play areas, and organises occasional concerts.
A fairly old but characterful wooden building at the end of the camping area houses adequate sanitary facilities, including washbasins in cabins with hot and cold water and controllable showers. There are no facilities for disabled visitors, no chemical disposal and no on-site motorhome services. Communal barbecue area (no barbecues on pitches).
