Why stay here ...

This attractive lakeside site is an ideal base for exploring some of Burgundy’s prettiest corners. It has a quiet feel during low season and becomes a lively, family-oriented site in summer, with many organised activities for children. Fishing and water sports also take place on the lake, meaning there is something for everyone.

Pitches are set on sloping grass or shallow terraces, and mature trees provide shade on many. Most have lovely views across the countryside, with some overlooking the lake.

The site is a short drive from some of the more prestigious wine-producing villages such as Meursault and Nuits-Saint-Georges, which offer a pleasant stroll through the streets and surrounding countryside. Less than an hour’s drive is Dijon, former home of the Dukes of Burgundy and today a bustling city with some fantastic 18th century architecture.

Not for us

My wife and I stopped off here for two nights on the way to the Dordogne and it was awful The staff were friendly enough but the other campers were not The site was really difficult to access and pitches are tiered needing levelling and most certainly movers We have a wide twin axle and I would say the site is not suitable for these big vans Even the access Road has cars parked both sides for the public Lake and we barely squeezed the van through the gap We used our own showers etc thankfully as the facilities looked really tired and quite grubby The site was very busy with mostly tents and it looked a bit of a shambles The site was very noisy especially in the evening and there was some kind of rave going on one night in the field opposite until 6 am ! The taps are situated in amongst other pitches and you feel like you are trespassing Some campers made you feel that way too All in all a dreadful experience we won’t be repeating .I think we are not alone in thinking the club should reconsider supporting this site

Great stopover

We had 3 nights here on our way down to the Alps. Arrived when it was lashing it down but the pitch was big and fairly easy to access with an 8ft wide twin axle. Facilities were good apart from the indoor pool which was horrible. Outdoor pool was great and generally all was well with toilets, showers etc. Location wise it is excellent for Dijon (beautiful city) and local wine regions - excellent degustation’s everywhere. The lake / reservoir it was on was ok but we did not go in. For what we wanted with the 3 kids (under 13) it ticked the boxes for 3 nights.

Disappointing site with poor quality facilities.

Stayed one night on our way home from Switzerland. Friendly staff but site seems to thInk proximity to a lake (man-made) excuses poor quality all round. Toilets and shower facilities were particularly woeful and the pitches, although spacious, were so badly sloping that it was impossible to level our motorhome even with chocks. Our end of the site contained the staff compound and a home for broken vehicles - altogether a bit rundown. Glad to leave next morning. Disappointed that the Club is promoting such a poor quality site. Not what we have come to expect.

A Reasonable Site

We’ve recently spent four nights at Le Lac De Panthier. Each morning we decided to extend our stay. So that decision indicates we liked what we had. The absolute key point is to try and secure a pitch overlooking the lake (reservoir). These pitches have a wonderful outlook that soothes the mind. Perfect. Otherwise, the site has challenges. The washroom and other facilities are very dated and not good. Pitches are quite close, although separated by hedges. The ehus are adequate; they are spread out and a long cable is needed and traffic will possibly crossover. If you can’t get a lake view pitch, then the remaining ones offer only a limited view and quite possible only of another unit. Expensive Wi-fi - you have to pay for two days worth at €13. Restaurant seemed pretty average and the site is remote from alternatives. However .. if you’re fortunate, the view is wonderful.
