A gem of a campsite and location

We booked in December 2019 to stay at late July 2020..with Covid and lockdowns we weren’t sure we would be able to travel but we’re lucky enough to enjoy a fantastic stay here. The site is very clean and friendly; the perfect size for its campers in terms of facilities and spacious pitches under the pine trees. Beware the ground is very hard in places! The staff were superb especially the manager who helped us with a couple of small issues which arose during our stay. E-mountain bikes for hire on site; it was an ideal base for Hiking and mountain views in the Clarée and serre chevalier. briancon is a nearby drive for provisions and great restaurants. Good sanitary blocks and the kids loved the adjacent river which gave us an alternative to the often busy poolside area. The only (minor) disappointment was not being allocated a riverside/sunny pitch despite requesting one on booking but this didn’t spoil the fantastic holiday here and we would love to return!

Great campsite in a perfect location

We stayed for a week at the end of July, beginning of August. We booked late, so we had a pitch without electricity on the edge of a small open grass area, which gave our kids plenty of room to run around on. Most of the other pitches were in the trees. We had great views of mountains in all directions, and the stars at night, but we also had the tent in the sun during the day. The campsite was pretty well full while we were there, but never felt too busy or crowded. They could do with a couple of extra toilets in the block nearest us (100m away from pitch), as there were sometimes short queues for the loo, but apart from that facilities were great. We enjoyed the new pool, staff were friendly and helpful, there was a freezer for ice blocks, and there was loads to do within 20 minutes at Briancon and Montgenevre. Thoroughly recommended - we had a great time. The local village, Les Alberts, had a festival on while we were there, which was good fun, and worth trying to time a visit with.

Perfect alpine retreat

Amazing location set amongst the mountains, river and forest with first rate services. The showers were always hot, toilets always clean, the pool was wonderful. The staff were extremely friendly too (Fatima in particular) and I would definitely recommend this campsite to friends and family, not to mention returning sometime soon. Thank you for an incredible holiday.
