...sanitair is slecht... en zwembad met betonrand en vloer niet schoon (zwarte aanslag) omgeving is prachtig maar camping moet sanitair verbeteren.
Het openluchtzwembad in dorpje ziet er vele malen leuker uit.

6.2

het sanitair in het oudste deel van de camping komt ook uit die tijd....de douche kreunt en steunt terwijl je de knop ingedrukt moet houden. Het sanitair deel onder het zwembad is iets beter. Maar de toiletrolhouders zijn defect en zeker ook niet altijd voorzien van papier.

Het nieuwste douche, toilet en afwas cabin/keetje is krap en heeft geen afvalbak voor \"afwas\" afval.

Het zwembad met betonnen rand en vloer heeft her en der zwarte aanslag.

This was our first visit to The Alps and we picked a lovely site for that visit, nestled in a valley, a five minute walk from the village, and surrounded by magnificent mountains. What a joy it was to have breakfast outside the van in bright sunshine and glance up at snow-clad, towering peaks. The pizzas at the restaurant attached to the campsite were really good. The village has all the shops the motorhomer/ caravanner is likely to need: post office, a choice of cafes, bakers, butchers, chemist, and a market on certain days (sorry, I can\'t remember which days).

Als u van wandelen, mountainbiken, en Bergen houd moet u hier een aantal daagjes bivakeren.
Geweldig gezellig dorp op loop afstand.

De camping personeel sanitair de staanplaats en restaurant prima in orde.
De omgeving schitterend maar een groot nadeel de ligging van de camping deze ligt aan een doorgaande weg dag en nacht verkeer dat zeer hinderlijk is en dan de dorpsklokken om het kwartier een klokkenspel soms (zelden) 6 slagen en vaak 5 tot 10 minutten niet fijn om te horen we hebben op het punt gestaan om op te breken en naar een andere camping te gaan.
Dit is dus niet de schuld van de camping, verder een geweldige camping maar zal er zeker niet meer naar toe gaan vanwege het geluidsoverlast.
