Domaine de Chalain is a beautiful campsite in the middle of the picturesque countryside of the French Jura. Enjoy the woods, the large lake, and the swimming paradise at the campsite. An ideal location for a camping holiday for those who like peace and quiet, but also for more adventurous types. The location of the Domaine de Chalain is unique: the campsite lies directly on the Lake of Chalain, in exceptionally beautiful natural surroundings. There's greenery all around you; and from the campsite you head straight into the forest. There are abundant trees on the campsite itself too.
So, you also camp in amongst the greenery. You can spend the night in your tent or caravan with a view of the lake, or enjoy the luxury of one of the spacious bungalows. Or you could stay in the charming 'Coco Sweet' luxury tent, with plenty of room for the whole family. You will find your camping pitch on one of the paths named for artists and writers. You may be camping on the Zola, Picasso or Van Gogh Allées.
The whole family
Domaine de Chalain is suitable for the whole family. For the parents or grandparents, who may value the beautiful surroundings, or even want an adventurous holiday, and for the children, who can enjoy swimming in the swimming paradise. This swimming paradise, named 'Les Lagons' has a 400 m² indoor pool. It also has a jacuzzi, a toddler pool, a bubble bath, and another 500 m² of outdoor swimming pools. It's also easy to combine nature and swimming fun: take a dip in the Lake of Chalain, where you can also go canoeing or pedal boating.

Site is located just outside Chatillon, a small town with an excellent restaurant (Escapade). Very quiet site with spacious pitches with some drainage issues in heavy rain. excellent pool, table tennis and canoeing on the river that runs at the bottom of the site.
Site shop offers limited range of goods and hot food, bigger shops are a 20 minute drive away.
Very good location, close to the lakes.
Lons, Dole and the hedgehogs waterfalls worth a visit.
Wonderful site, so much so, we are returning this year, the pool complex looks great but is freezing, the lake makes this site, the area is stunning, cant wait to go back in 3 weeks. Toilets ore open roofed, but are cleaned regularly, shops are well stocked, the fresh bread is gorgeous and reasonably priced, would highly recommend, we dont usually go to the same site twice, but if it aint broke, why fix it!
Fantastic family camp site. Great surroundings and excellent facilites. Recyling etc and places to mooch about and explore.
