Travelling party: Couple

This is my fifth visit to the campsite and it still takes my breath away, stunning location with fantastic hiking. The facilities and staff are excellent, they phoned the doctors surgery on my behalf when my partner needed urgent treatment and couldn\\\'t be more helpful. The Lacs du Fenetre are amazing, I took a sleeping bag and camera one night and took some great evening and morning shots. A great place to relax.

Thank you very much for your nice comment. We are happy to read that you enjoyed the helpful personal, the facilities and the Lacs Fenêtre :-)

One of our favorite sites on this trip. Absolutely stunning views of the mountains well worth the trip up the valley. Lots of walking opportunities but not time to do - will def be back for a longer stay.

Breathtaking views, peace, quiet and tranquility. Really loved this camp site and would have loved to stay longer. Waking up to the view of the mountains was something that couldn't be beaten.

Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The freshly baked, local bread every morning was delicious! Lots of information and leaflets available.

Lots of well marked trails to walk of varying difficulty and to suit most abilities. Short walk into the village of La Fouly with a Tourist Information office, shop, bars etc.

Travelling party: Family with children, various ages

This campsite was in a stunning location with beautiful views of a Glacier! The plots were of a fantastic size and well spread out in a natural environment. There were plenty of shower/toilet blocks. The children loved the space and freedom. The staff spoke fantastic English and gave us information on the area. There was a play area and great log cabin with a TV and computers for all to use. Hope to visit again soon!

Excellent.

I've been here exactly one year ago for 8 days, and I've been amazed by almost any aspect during this period, not to mention the surroundings and spectacular mountain views. There are many hiking trails around for every experience level, and it's easy to get overenthusiastic about it.

Beside the scenery, camping staff are very helpful, camping pitch is very convenient. I recommend this place to every nature-lover, it's not a coincidence that this place has received so many positive reviews. I'll be going again this year.
