Alan Rogers Review
Located in the heart of the Jura in the Loue valley on the edge of historic Ornans, this traditional site is on a fairly steep slope with terraced pitches. The area has plenty of outdoor activities including canoeing and kayaking, mountain biking, caving and fishing. With 95 pitches (65 for touring), there are around 50 with electricity hook-ups (3-16A), including nine with multi-services. There are also 25 mobile homes, caravans or tents to rent on the site and three gîtes. Larger units will find access difficult.
A café and bar with an outside terrace is beside the freshwater ecopool and a paddling pool. A small shop, which is open all season, stocks basic needs, together with some toys and postcards etc. In the main season, entertainment and a children’s club are arranged, plus guided visits, caving and climbing and canoeing trips also available. A path for cycling and walking leads along the old railway track from the town into the mountains for 10 km.
Two toilet blocks, one at the rear of reception building, include a baby room, facilities for children and disabled visitors. Small laundry area. Shop (all season). Café, bar and takeaway (1/5-15/9). Heated outdoor eco-pool and paddling pool (1/5-30/9). Sauna and gym (charged). Washing facility for caving suits and equipment. Games room. Play area. Boules. Bicycle hire. Safety deposit boxes. Entertainment and a children’s club in high season. WiFi on part of site (free).
LocationFrom Besançon take D67 to Ornans. At first and second roundabouts continue straight on towards town centre. Take first right on D241 (Chassagne St Denis), cross river, follow signs and turn right by school. Continue for 500 m. and then fork right, site is on left. Link to campsite location map on google
