Travelling party: Family with children, 12 - 18 years

Liked - This is already for 35 years our favorite place to go in the summer, the big Lake, small river & big river make it complete for every Age. Lots of kids in different ages and the environment challenges to play “old school”. Leave your phones at home & enjoy nature and beautiful hikings. Highly recommended paradise.
Disliked - The bread is not very crunchy. I prefer fresh bakery in La Mure or Entraigues.
The cabin we stayed in is super basic, we like it that way. Bed (couch) could be a bit better. Somehow the kids didn’t manage to do a lot of activities, maybe the times just didn’t fit our schedule. It is a great way to meet other kids. Best way still is the big football field.
