Au Clos de la Chaume
Log in to write a review
Use this site as a stop over between Italy and Calais in early September. Received great welcome from friendly owner and allocated a very large pitch. Site was very quiet and peaceful with lots of vacant pitches. Facilities very clean ( unisex) and site had quite a rustic feel to it . Would like to visit again and spend some more time exploring this area.
No point in reiterating many good things others have said already in other reviews. Stayed here twice - two weeks in Sept 2018 and three in June-July 2019 (chose large full-service pitches each time). Be very happy to stay again. Great base for exploring the Vosges making best use of sunny days exploring forests, lakes, high pastures and dark sky nights. Great driving touring. Also within one hour commute to Ste-Marie-aux-Mines if heading there for the annual mega mineral fair at the end of June. Thankfully had unexpectedly cool nights because of the altitude (Corcieux is at 1800 ft, 550 m) even though the recent heat wave delivered up to 41C around midday in nearby but lower down Saint-Dié-des-Vosges. Seemed to be a popular stop off point for those heading to/from Switzerland from the UK. Go check out 'Chocolatier THIL' on the main road through Saulcy-sur-Meurthe - yum yum... also Boulangerie PANOU in Corcieux itself - yum yum...
Stopped here for 6 nights in July whilst following Tour de France. Sight was busy but facilities always clean and tidy. Pitch sizes were very good, had a large pitch near Toilet block could have fitted Two units on it. Did not use pool but looked excellent and lots to do for children Owners very friendly and helpful. Location good for visiting Alsace wine region and also Vouges Mountains. Will return again when not following Tour as lots to do a see and do.
We stopped for one night on our way through Alsace, and would happily go back and stay for longer. A very welcoming site in a beautiful part of the world that we were not familiar with. Good, clean facilities (albeit unisex). Small skull on site selling nice local beer and wine.
9 nights June 2019. Had a large serviced pitch at the end of the site - very peaceful. Separated from busier main part of the site and facilities by statics. Easy access. Well kept. Owners (he English, she lovely French accent!) very welcoming and helpful. Corcieux (5 mins walk, 2 mins bike) quiet and lovely - baker, butcher, cafes, Spa shop, tourist info. Auberge in neighbouring La Houssiere was a surprise find. Lovely local walks and cycle rides. Vosges mountains beautiful driving tours. Days out to stunning Colmar and Strasbourg. Would happily return.
This is our second visit to this charming, well run site on the edge of the Vosges Mountians. The site itself is small and quiet with a real family vibe. The pitches are a good size and a small stream runs at the edge of the site- fun for children. There is no bar or restaurant (which is how we prefer it) but the site is within walking distance of the small town of Corcieux with restaurants. There is also a pizza van and a chicken rotiserie that visit during the week. In town there is a small market on Mondays. The addition of a UV cover to the pool was a bonus as it made the pool a lovely place to relax and swim whatever the weather with an outside deck for those who want to sunbathe. The toilet blocks are mixed and did get busy at peak time but the shaowers were lovely! The area itself is fantastic and within a short drive there are lakes and hiking, castles and vinyards. The scenery is stunning. We enjoyed the summer toboggan at Col de la Schlucht. Further afield, Colmar is worth a visit. We can't wait to come back!
We used the site as a stop over on the way from Belgium to Northern Italy. Easy to find site with very pleasant staff. Access to pitch a little tight in places, but OK. Pitch size great with water, drainage & electricity. Wish we could have stayed longer; maybe next time.
Stayed at this site as part of our holiday. Ideal small site near Corcieux. Good cycling and walking routes around the site. Some nice hammocks if looking for an afternoon siesta down by the stream. Swimming pool is under cover so keeps it warmth. A good butcher and bakery in the village. We met some nice couples and enjoyed some good food and wine with them. Pitches are not regimented and large enough, just how we like it, need to use the old style EHU plug. Facilities are clean and maintained. If your coming to/from Calais, would suggest go via Lille > Luxembourg > Nancy, motorway all the way and best thing toll free! Has also good links to Strasbourg or even South via Gerardmer (easy to tow right down to Belfort).
Stayed here for 10 nights in July 2017. excellent family run site, very friendly and helpful. Very knowledgeable about the area which they are happy to pass on. Good sized pitches, facilities clean nice covered swimming pool. Would recommend this site for site seeing as close to the vineyards, route des vins and the route des Cretes built in world war 1, this has some breathtaking views along its route. Intend to return as still plenty to see.
We stayed here in July 2017 for a week with two young teenagers. The owners of the site are extremely friendly and helpful. The facilities were kept exceptionally clean all day. The site is just the right size, big enough to provide services but small enough to be low key. The kids loved the pool and table tennis. Local food and wine vendors visited the site on an evening (the roast chickens are good!) and there's a great bread delivery every morning. Some of things we wanted to do and see were on the other side of the Vosges mountains but the drive over to Colmar and Munster is spectacular. Great place to stay.
