Manque d\'ambiance pour les ados et les grands dans le camping, pourtant il y a touts les infrastructures (piscine, SPA, lac et de nombreux espaces verts). les animations sont pour les personnes agées (loto, concours de petanque) ou pour les moins de 8 ans (uniquement 1H30 le matin).
Camping un peu rustre, ils ne veulent attirer que des personnes agées! Les ados (dont les enfants du personnel du camping) vont à la place du village pour boire de l\'alcool, fumer, écouter de la musique et être entre eux car ils se font viré du camping par le vigil sinon... Doit-on enfermer nos gosses de peur qu\'ils sortent du camping et restent sans surveillance?
De plus, traverser le camping équivaut à une vraie randonnée! Les chemins sont plutot casse-tronche! les enfants n\'ont fait que tomber et ma femme aussi hihi!
Le personnel est tres sympa au bar mais un peu moins à l\'accueil...
Piscine un peu petite en pleine saison mais appréciable malgré le fait soit pas chauffée.
WIFI payant et tres cher!
Sur les chalets, rien a dire, à part, l\'hygiène, on ne voyait pas a travers les vitres et les couvertures sentaient mauvais.

Mooie camping. Zeer grote plaatsen. Toen we onze plek gevonden hadden, dachten we dat dit een dubbele plek zou zijn. Zijn ook kleinere plekken, dus misschien beetje geluk gehad. Zwembad groot genoeg in verhouding met de camping. Omgeving super, als je van bergen houdt. Door de bergen is de temperatuur in de nacht ook heerlijk.

Very tight access road though small village, although way out easier. Site lanes tight, glad we have a small caravan. Pitches large and hedged. Surroundings beautiful. Stream flows through site. Good stopover on way to Spain early or late season.

Camping choisi pour sa prestation mini club. surprise a l\'arrivee accueil uniquement de 10h a 11h30 avec animatrice inapte, désagreable et surtout complétement inconsciente. en effet nous avons deposé notre enfant de 2ans et demi à 10 h pour le retrouver 1h plus tard à notre retour de promenade seul et abandonné a l\'autre bout du camping juste a coté de la riviere!! elle ne s\'était meme pas rendu compte de son absence!! et ne s\'est meme pas fendue d\'une seule excuse! nous avons eu la peur de notre vie, autant dire que nous sommes partis le jour meme, vacances complétement gachées.

Camping gebruikt voor 4 nachten ivm de Tour du France.
Een nette goed verzorgde camping tussen de bergen voorzien van grote plaatsen, een zwembad met glijbanen en veel schaduwrijke plekken dmv bomen.
Sanitair gebouwen niet groot voor het aantal aanwezige plekken maar nog niet in de rij gestaan.
Een aanrader!

Très beau camping dans une belle vallée. Bon acueil - propriétaires très sympas qui ont fait beaucoup de travaux de rénovation: sanitaires refait a neuf et très bien entretenu et agrémenté de fleurs et d'arbustes.

Can't comment on facilities, pool etc as all shut. Pitches way too tight for longer caravans, scraped ours trying to get in, it does need the suitable for longer vans symbol off as it is NOT. Wash/ toilet facilities a bit desperate except for the disabled which were good - used them. Pitches got flooded in the rain - weather not their fault I know. Nice & quiet, but for us - one to miss in future.
