Camping les Deux Ballons
France, Lorraine, Vosges, Saint Maurice-sur-Moselle
Alan Rogers Review
Run by the same family for over 50 years, les Deux Ballons is set in a narrow valley near the source of the River Moselle in the Vosges. The 150 pitches (all fully serviced, 4/10A electricity) are on level grass, some under trees and others in the open by a stream that runs through the site. Wild birds are abundant, including kingfishers. This is the perfect location from which to commence the climb of the Ballon d’Alsace, which is hugely popular with cyclists. Theatre lovers should visit Bussang (6 km) and see the large wooden People’s Theatre, built in 1895 and still performing in July and August every year; you will marvel at the raked stage and the enormous backstage areas which may be visited at any time.
The site has a special lake for children to fish (stocked by the owner), whereas the adults can visit one of three adjacent lakes just outside. The keen cyclist would enjoy the long distance track which passes the boundary. Those of a slightly different sporting bent, may like to visit the Casino at Bussang (open all year) even if only to partake of a meal and watch.
Two stylish and modern toilet blocks (all season) and two older ones (high season only). Facilities for disabled campers and babies. Laundry. Motorhome services. Gas supplies. Bar and takeaway (July/Aug). Large heated swimming pool with slide and paddling pool (June-Aug). Fishing. Tennis. Bicycle hire. Boules. TV. Internet point. WiFi in parts (charged).
Site is on main N66 Le Thillot-Bussang road on western edge of St Maurice behind Avia filling station (entrance partly obscured so keep a look out).Link to campsite location map on google
