Bedankt voor de digitale nota en de prachtige tijd, 10 overnachtingen begin september 2016, op jullie camping Des Glaciers op loopafstand van La Fouly. Prachtig weer, prachtige omgeving met erg veel mooie wandelpaden, ook vanaf of dichtbij de camping, met verschillende moeilijkheidsgraden. Ruime camping waarbij je zelf je plekje mocht en kon uitzoeken. Keuze uit dichtbij sanitair of wat verder weg. Mooie intieme plekjes voor alleen jou caravan/tent, maar indien gewenst ook een groter veld zonder afscheidingen. Auto bij de hand en een watertappunt in de buurt. Op sommige plaatsen wel een verlengsnoer voor de elektriciteit gewenst. \'s Morgens een heerlijk vers broodje op bestelling.
Kortom: een prima vakantie en kampeerplek en voor herhaling vatbaar.

Toller Campingplatz inmitten der Natur mit sagenhaftem Bergblick! Der Platz ist sehr weitläufig und hat schöne Terassen. Die Atmosphäre ist ruhig und angenehm. Allgemein ist der Platz sehr kinderfreundlich mit Spielplatz und extra Babybad. Es ist alles da, was man für einen erholsamen Urlaub braucht.

Très beau camping, en pleine nature, au pied des glaciers, très calme. On peut choisir son emplacement, en plaine, en forêt, près des sanitaires, dans un coin intime. Le personnel est adorable. Il manque peut-être quelques infos sur les balades à faire à partir du camping (on pourrait prêter des cartes avec les itinéraires ou prêter des livres sur la faune et la flore).

Schitterende locatie, je hebt nauwelijks in de gaten dat je op een camping staat. Personeel vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Sanitair voldoende en de plaatsen zijn ruim.
In Sept. 2014 6 nachten gestaan.

Camping met veel wandelmogelijkheden. Rustig gelegen met uitzicht op besneeuwde bergtoppen. Restaurant en inkoopmogelijkheden op loop afstand.
Wij waren hier 4 dagen met de camper en hebben genoten. We komen hier zeker nog terug.
