Travelling party: Couple

We extended our original three-night stay to five nights as we enjoyed this site so much. The toilet block and whole site were impeccably maintained. The atmosphere encouraged by the owners was friendly and relaxed. We requested a pitch next to the stream which was ideal for our dog who managed to keep cool all day. The adjacent lake was warm, clean and perfect for swimming (the dog was allowed to do so after 7.30 p.m. which was great. Pleasant walks close by and short drives will take you to Mont Chat for stunning views, and Chanaz to hire electric boats to take a trip on the canal and lake. We will definitely return.

Travelling party: Family with children, 4 – 12 years

Beautiful setting, immaculate facilities, extremely well organised, easy to book, English spoken, adjacent to a small warm lake with life guard for swimming and boating and well located for exploring this wonderful area. We stayed in a Funflower Tent which was fully equipped for all our holiday needs, including comfortable beds. The tent was next to a trout stream - lovely for the children to fish in, but if they were toddlers I would have been concerned. We will go back!

This site is a little gem, very friendly staff, in a lovely position right next to a small lake with beach and stunning mountain scenery. The site has a bar but it only opened once while we were there, drinks were reasonably priced. The toilet and shower facilities are all new and were kept very clean. We will definately be using this site again

A lovely quiet camp site with a garden or park like feel about it, beautiful trees, shrubs & flowers surround the site & pitches. Close to a small lake with easy walking access to a well cared for beach area on the lake for swimming with lifeguards in attendance. Good clean facilities. One of the best camp sites we have visited during our tour of France, Italy & Switzerland. Would recommend for peace & quiet, easy access for surrounding area on foot, cycling or by car.
