Travelling party: Seniors

In May this was a perfect haven of peace and quiet with good size, flat, well cut pitches with magnificent views of the mountains. The welcome was warm. The facilities clean.The unfenced small stream running through the site would make it not suitable for small children.
There is a boulangerie in the village and a well stocked small village shop. Absolutely loved our stay here and stayed longer than we intended.

Travelling party: Couple

Heerlijke eenvoudige camping, prachtige ligging met uitzicht op de bergen. Zeer vriendelijk personeel en uitstekend sanitair, wel met douchemuntjes. Eind augustus/begin september heel rustig en dus echt grand calme. Perfecte uitvalsbasis voor fietsers. Spar, restaurants en zwembad op loopafstand.
