Campsite Domaine de la Dombes ****

General information
Guide price €23.40

Camping Domaine de la Dombes is situated slightly north-west of Lyon, in the heart of the Dombes nature reserve. This region, excellent for walking and cycling, is characterised by thousands of small lakes. The camping site is located by one of these lakes, on a wooded terrain. The unique rental accommodation units here add an extra dimension to camping. Stay in a floating cottage on the lake or in one of the tepees. Alternatively, climb into one of the exciting tree houses.

Nature lovers and seekers of peace and quiet

The camping site houses a diverse range of visitors. You will mainly come across nature lovers and seekers of peace and quiet. However, the camping site is also popular with families and children. Spending a night in a tree house; which child - small or not so small - would not love to do this?

Lake and pool

The lake extends over the full length of the camping site. You can swim in a separate natural pool, where the water is filtered through a layer of sand. This pool is not excessively large, certainly not if compared to the lake, but it is perfect for children. The pool is surrounded by a wide sandy beach. Ideal for sunbathing. If you want to kick back and relax, you can also head for the spa with sauna and bubble bath.

Culinary enjoyment

Imagine yourself under a sun umbrella on the beach, drink in hand: you can do it all at camping site Domaine de la Dombes. You are well taken care of at the lively cocktail bar near the natural pool. When you are hungry, there is no need to get up from your camping chair. Picnic baskets and aperitif baskets are available if you feel like being pampered. They will even deliver these to your camping pitch.

Travelling party: Couple

Wir waren auf der Rückreise, nach einer Reifenpanne, für eine Nacht auf dem Platz. Wurden dort sehr herzlich begrüßt und haben uns noch ein Essen bestellt. Das wurde uns an unseren Stellplatz gebracht-war sehr lecker und für uns war die Welt wieder in Ordnung.
Uns haben besonders die wunderschönen Baumhäuser und schwimmenden Häuser gefallen - alles sehr liebevoll gemacht ! Wir werden wiederkommen um einmal in einem Baumhaus zu übernachten.

Eigentlich abwechslungsreich gestalteter Camping (Schwimmbad, Angelsee, Seilpark etc.), der aber ein ausgesprochen schlechtes Sanitär aufweist (sehr unsauber, keine WC-Brillen, kein WC-Papier, alt). Wir blieben daher nur eine Nacht.

Josef Wiener, on this campsite in June 2014

Travelling party: Seniors

Sanitär ist unsauber, z.T. defekte Lampen. Sehr weitläufiges Gelände.
Der Badesee ist ohne Aufsicht und daher sehr unsauber. Hundeplätze fehlen und sind auch nicht separiert.
Autos fahren innerhalb des Geländes bis über 24:00, sehr lästig.

Rainer Klaus, on this campsite in March 2014

Travelling party: Seniors

Für eine Zwischenübernachtung in Ordnung aber für unseren Geschmack kein Urlaubsplatz.
Um nochmals zu übernachten jederzeit aber mehr nicht.
