Why stay here ...
This small, charming site is nestled amongst mountains and woods near the village of Artemare and is ideal for those looking for peace and quiet. With a mixture of open and shaded pitches and spotless facilities including a swimming pool and snack bar, it offers everything couples and young families might need for a comfortable stay.
The English-speaking owners are knowledgeable about the local area and are keen to share information on walking routes – some of which start from the site - and attractions.

We stayed here in August 2016 at the height of the summer season. The site is not too large and the facilities are good and cleaned regularly. The site owners/managers are very friendly and extremely helpful. The pool was a bit busy as it was school holiday time, but it was warm and regularly checked for water quality. There is a small restaurant with some entertainment available. Children are catered for with a kids club every day and a bouncy castle most times. There is fresh bread available to order every day from reception. WiFi is free in reception or for a small charge you can have it on your pitch, it worked well. There are very limited places of interest close to the site and so you have to drive to them, but this is not a problem.There are, however, a number of walks around the campsite area and the staff will happily lend maps etc for you to enjoy them. Overall a very nice site and highly recommended.
