Why stay here ...

A family owned site close to the village of Neydens set against a backdrop of mountains, La Colombière is a friendly and attractive base from which to explore this stunning region. Open all year, it has spacious, level pitches separated by fruit trees and flowering shrubs, and excellent, well-kept facilities including an indoor pool, bar and restaurant. The English-speaking owners have a vineyard nearby, and a bottle of their produce can be sampled in the onsite restaurant.

Buses to Annecy and Geneva can be caught at the stop just 800m from the site. Annecy is enchanting with its lakeside setting and colourful buildings. The 16th century Château d’Annecy is a highlight, with its artistic and historical exhibitions. Chamonix can also be reached in an hour, and you can ascend the Aiguille du Midi for spectacular views of the Alps from here.

August holiday

We have just returned having spent 10 days at La Colombiere. The site was well run, clean and well presented. Our pitch was very spacious, with plently of room for an awning and tents. The toilet facilities could use some updating and the shop is only really useful for bread. Great site for children with lots of places to visit, Geneva is a short bus trip away. The local area of Neydens and St. Julien en Geneve is very modern and lacks characters

AUGUST 2018

We've recently returned from a 2 week stay here; the staff are very welcoming and English is spoken if needed. The site facilities are excellent and our serviced pitch had plenty of room. The swimming pool area again had plenty of room and even on the hottest days we could always find a lounger. There is a Migros supermarket nearby but we preferred to use the Intermarche in St Julian for shopping. The site restaurant looked inviting but we only used the takeaway and the shop for the usual morning bread and croissants. There is a huge amount to do in the area: we visited Geneva, Mount Saleve (cable car) , the Gorge de Fier, Annecy and the towns along Lake Geneva. Yvoire is certainly worth a visit as is the Chateau Ripaille near Thonon (they sell their own excellent wine!). You can get to the Jura mountains relatively easily (via Geneva); the luge (rail toboggan) near Mont Rond is great fun! The office helped us book canoe hire from Seyssel (discounted price available) and we enjoyed a trip down the Rhone with return by minibus to the start. The highlight was the trip up to the Aiguille de Midi at Chamonix, again the office helped us get this booked, the views were worth every penny! Whilst nearby we took the Mont Blanc tunnel through to Italy and enjoyed the afternoon in Aosta. During the day there are some activities put on for both children and adults and for the most part the 'all quiet' after 10pm was ocibserved. We would certainly consider coming to this lovely family run site again..

A Good Site for a Stopover or a Short Visit to Switzerland.

An attractive well kept and managed site. Toilets and showers are OK, but can be a bit strained if the site is busy. The pitches are excellent and level. Excellent swimming pool. A half hour's walk downhill and uphill takes you to the nearest supermarket and bus stop. There is a private operator bus service one way to Geneva (about 30 mins) and the other way to Annecy (about 60 mins.) There are only 3/4 buses either way per day. Sometimes they turn up full and you have to wait 2 hours at least for the next one or do another half hour's walk uphill and downhill etc.

Enforced extra stay!!

We'd booked 7 nights at La Colombiere - and because of a car problem (it had to go into the garage for repair) we stayed an extra 10 nights. A great site to be "stranded!" The proprietors (a family) could not have been more helpful and considerate - even down to offering us a lift to the garage! The site is superb, big pitches, spotless "sanitaires" and a great pool complex. Huge thanks!!
