Why stay here ...
This large woodland site near the picturesque market town of Larochette has a large pool, sports and play areas and entertainment programme. The pleasant restaurant serves tasty, French-style food and you can dine al fresco on the terrace, or use the takeaway service. Pitches are grassy and slightly sloping, with many shaded during the day, while the facilities are of a high standard and kept clean.
The quaint market town of Larochette, known locally as "Little Switzerland”, is a short walk away and overlooked by a charming castle which sits on top of a hill. The delights of Luxembourg City are also close enough to discover easily, and the immediate surroundings offer great cycling and walking routes.

We prebooked for 3 nights (mid august) for our family of 4 in the campsite but it was very busy, crowded and noisy even after 10.30pm. Provision in the shop and food outlets was limited and expensive as were laundry facilities. Local village pleasant (mostly cafes), good supermarket 11km away and easy by rail from local town to Luxembourg city which was worth a visit. Big site but clean and staff good. Pitches were well worn and showers tired. We left after two nights

Thank you for your feedback. To give some background, in July 2016 there was a very bad storm in the village of Larochette and our camping pitches really suffered because of this, so this was unfortunately a result of the storm. In reference to the noise levels, we have taken this on board and now have on site a porter who keeps an eye on the campsite at night to ensure that noise is kept to a minimum. We continue to make improvements to the site and its facilities and it has changed a lot over the past couple of years. We are extremely busy in high season, if people prefer more space and quiet then visiting outside of this peak period may provide a more restful experience.
Thankfully we only booked 1 night at this site as a stop off on our way to France. The good points first, very very clean and good quality toilets and showers. Now the bad, the site is very very crowded! It is full of very small caravans and trailers tents. We were in a 7.2m Bailey Pegasus which is NOT suitable for this site. We were as wide as the access road! The pitch was at the end of an even smaller road which handily turned to thick rutted mud at the start of our pitch. Just to make it extra tricky it seemed to slope in several directions. There was no way on earth I could have reversed the van on even if the sea of trailer tents and feral children had not been there. Thankfully 2 Dutch guys helped us push it on. The pitch was awful, sloping so badly I had to get on my knees in the mud to jack the van up to put the ramps under as I couldn't use the car in the thick mud. The pitches are wrecked by the tents and just turn to mud. My daughter and wife both slipped over. I have never been so pleased to leave a site! The caravan club need to take this out of their brochure.
