The vast campsite Le Chenantier is located between the Alps of the mountainous Savoy, all the way to the east of France. This small-scale campsite is situated in the midst of the rugged nature of Valoise National Park and is an ideal holiday destination for mountain hikers and cyclists. Without too many facilities and with spacious pitches, this is a simple but comfortable campsite.

Mountain views

Almost fifty pitches are scattered across the green campsite, which, with its open character and extensive lawns, breathes spaciousness. The terrain is rugged and the pitches are situated on different terraces. Many of the pitches are sunny and are located in the open field.On the edge of the forest, pines will give you shade. Shady or not, all pitches are spacious and from every spot on the campsite you have the same beautiful view of the surrounding mountains. The rental accommodation on the campsite is special: a teepee, yurt (a traditional round tent) or log cabin, built with tree trunks.

Campsite for mountaineers

Whether you bring your mountain bike, racing bike or hiking boots, you are in the right place as a mountaineer at this campsite. The whole camping season you will find lovers of the high mountains here. Campers of various nationalities find their way to the campsite and its surrounding Alps.

Valoise National Park

Alpine meadows, over a thousand different flowers and plants, many special animal species: Valoise National Park is a paradise for nature lovers. Hikers and mountaineers in particular will appreciate it here. You can spot all kinds of animals: ibexes, chamois and golden eagles show up regularly, provided you don't make too much noise.

C\'est un très chouette camping avec une très belle vue. J\'aime dire que c\'est un \"vrai\" camping. Les sanitaires sont propres, un accueil parfait et des conseils de balades de la part du propriétaire, un service glaçon pour glacière, table de ping-pong, terrain de pétanque, trampoline, baby-foot, de quoi ravir tout le monde. Rien que la vue permet de se sentir en vacances surtout que les emplacements sont grands (même les petits). Il y a de nombreuses choses à faire dans le coin. On peut même y louer une yourte ou une cabane qui ont l\'air bien sympathique. Nous y sommes déjà allé deux fois et ce n\'était certainement pas la dernière.

Camping le chenantier is een prachtig gelegen camping met prima sanitair en een rustige sfeer. Het is zo mogelijk om de hele dag op de camping te blijven en genieten van het mooie uitzicht, maar je kunt het ook gebruiken als een basiskamp voor een meerdaagse tocht.

Hele fijne kleine camping met prachtige terrasplekken. Uitzicht vanaf de campingplek is geweldig. De eigenaar is erg vriendelijk en wil op allerlei manieren helpen als je dit wenst. vanuit de camping zijn er vele mogelijkheden om te wandelen. Zowel op lager als hoger gelegen gebieden in de bergen. Ook mogelijk om te mountainbiken. Handig is de Intermache op 5 minuten lopen vanaf de camping. En de prijs per nacht is weinig. Goede prijs kwaliteit verhouding. Wij zullen hier zeker nog eens terugkomen.

Mooi gelegen camping.
Prachtig om te wandelen en mountainbiken/race fietsen op de cols.
Goede betaalbare supermarkt op loop afstand.
Camping eigenaar spreekt goed Engels en goed aanspreekbaar en zichtbaar aanwezig.
Broodjes service aanwezig.
Voorseizoen heerlijk gezellig rustig op de camping.
Doorgaande weg is wel regelmatig bij wind van uit het dal goed te horen.
Geen verkoop drankjes of ijsjes.

Eenvoudige camping in een schitterende omgeving: 360 gr bergzicht. Gelijkgestemde medekampeerders, rustige camping, iewat verouderd maar goed onderhouden en regelmatig schoongemaakt sanitair, zeer vriendelijke en behulpzame beheerder Florent. Enkel het weer is onberekenbaar, maar dat is eigen aan een bergvakantie.

Heerlijke, schone, kleine camping in de Franse Alpen. Ontzettend vrolijke, vriendelijke eigenaar die met liefde zijn camping onderhoudt en volop meedenkt en leuke, nuttige tips geeft.
Nogmaals dank daarvoor Florent!

Het sanitair is enigszins verouderd, maar wordt goed schoon gehouden.
Kindvriendelijkheid vooral geschikt voor kleine kinderen.
