Camping pitches with shade

The camping fields bear the names of the cols and each contain about eight to ten pitches, mainly for caravans. These pitches are spacious and often in the shade of trees and hedges. For tents and campers there are separate, slightly smaller pitches. Sometimes you will see a special hiker's cabin among the pitches, but most of the rental accommodations are located on the higher part of the campsite.

Cycling, hiking boots and motorcycle helmets

The majority of campsite visitors consist of avid cycling enthusiasts who are eager to climb the mountains by bicycle or mountain bike. But the mountain landscape is also a paradise for hikers and motorcyclists. At Des Grands Cols campsite, you will also come across many hiking boots and motorcycle helmets.

Restaurants in Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne

In the restaurant at the reception, you can satisfy your worst cravings with small dishes and snacks. For a more extensive meal there are nice, cosy restaurants to be found in Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne, just a ten-minute walk away. This is the perfect place for your daily shopping.

Sanitary building

There is only one toilet building at the back of the campsite grounds but for the eighty pitches, this is enough.

Travelling party: Group of friends

A good site. One to come back to. Slightly odd entrance difficult for big caravans. Close to town. Nice level pitches. Quit a bit of shade. Amazing views. Decent clean toilets, but bring your own toilet paper! Free hot showers. Coffee bar and limited bread on site. We came for one night and stayed three.

Travelling party: Seniors

Fantastic position in the mountains. Easy to find in town, just be careful in entrance as access can be awkward for long units due to slope from town road. For a town owned site everything was perfectly laid out. Good sized pitches, water and power at each pitch. Toilet waste and motorvan waste all near entrance, so long walk from some pitches. Local town has very good market on Saturdays. Very good area for cycling and/or general touring. A site to come back to.
