A lovely small tree filled site with large pitches some fully serviced. Very attentive English French owners who worked hard to keep the site spotless whilst retaining its rural feel. They have excellent local knowledge and are keen to pass on helpful information to enhance your holiday . On site shop sells very good local beers , wine and locally made preserves. Unisex toilet facilities but no hand drying blower or towels. Wine tasting and local produce sampling evenings were arranged and were very well supported. The site is in a beautiful area with the Vosges mountains a short drive away and well worth the effort as scenery was spectacular and the Alsace towns of Strasbourg, Colmar, and the Route des Vins villages were a must see. The site is a real find and offers tranquillity in a busy holiday. Highly recommended.
Difficult to sum up, some positives, some negatives. We tried to contact the site by both email and telephone (several times) to check on lunch time closing and to ask for a shady pitch, but received no response. Close to main road with some heavy traffic which could be a problem for pitches near the entrance, and turning into the site with a caravan needs care. Otherwise, peaceful. We had booked a large pitch, but on arrival it had almost no shade and the temperature was 35! Fortunately, we were able to swap it for a special pitch with shade. Local village and towns have good shops but little character. The interesting towns and villages and the very scenic countryside of the Route des Vins and the Route Des Cretes start about 45 minutes car drive away. Good swimming pool, but why is it closed and locked at 7pm? Washing machine room and handicapped room also kept locked. Wash block clean but not up to 4 star standard. Good play areas for younger children.
