Prima camping op loopafstand van het centrum. Camping ligt erg gunstig als je met de racefiets diverse cols wilt gaan beklimmen. De camping zou er wel wat verzorgder uit mogen zien.Toen wij er eind juni waren stond het gras hoog en was er
overal veel onkruid. Dat is jammer.

This is the second time we have stayed here. We loved it the first time but this time found it very disappointing. The staff were not at all helpful and gave us a very narrow, dark, dusty, sloping pitch when there were plenty of much nicer ones available. We asked about an alternative but were told that was it so we only stayed one night. Only half of the facilities were open but were clean. The staff \'lost\' out bread order and refused to reimburse us, claiming that we hadn\'t ordered or paid. Shame as it\'s a beautiful site let down by bad attitudes.There is a good restaurant just outside the site and a supermarket a very short drive away.

Very warm and friendly welcome. Beautiful location, flat pitches, clean and tidy site.
We missed the entrance, although there is a large sign !
Overnight stay, would have loved to have stayed longer

Sauberer CP mit schönen, schattigen Stellplätzen.Das Personal ist äußerst freundlich und hilfsbereit.Die Sanitäranlagen sind im Duschbereich unisex. Duschen am Anfang sehr warm, aber nach 2-3 maligen betätigen perfekt temperiert. Die Stadt ist leicht in wenigen Minuten zu erreichen und die Umgebung für Serpentinen süchtigen Motorradfahrer perfekt. Die Route des Grandes Alpes lädt zu einem Abstecher ein. Alles in Allem ein perfekter Ausgangsort um dem Zweirad Hobby zu frönen. Wir kommen bestimmt wieder.

Nous étions de passage. Nous sommes restés une nuit supplémentaire pour visiter la ville et le musée Opinel.
Le camping est parfait : douche chaude, eau chaude aux éviers, grands emplacements, sanitaires bien entretenus.
Nous y reviendrons avec plaisir pour visiter les alentours sur les bons conseils de l office du tourisme.
