i am surprised of the positive comment :cold water in the shower and in to wash the dish,,no igienic paper in the wc ,but only in 1 wc for handicap (in the description in italian they wrote it there is).During the night no light in all the camping.I think that the ACSI inspector wold control better.Only the site,the mountain and the sky, are wonderfull

Bijzonder vriendelijk personeel maar niet altijd aanwezig. Fraaie afgebakende plaatsen. Spectaculaire omgeving.

Sehr nettes hilfsbereites Personal. Parzellierte Plätze. Schöne und saubere Sanitäranlage. Baguette gibt es nach Vorbestellung am Kiosk. Supermärkte in 500 m Entfernung. WLan im Rezeptionsbereich. Platz liegt mitten zwischen den bekannten Col de la Madeleine, Col de la Croix de Fer und Col du Telegraphe mit Galibier. Die Zufahrt zum Campingplatz ist nicht leicht zu finden und nur unzureichend ausgeschildert. (Vor der Arvan-Brücke rechts von St.Jean aus)

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.

Leuke camping met goede sanitaire voorzieningen, wij komen hier graag nog eens terug. Leuke Limburgse receptioniste!

Super camping als je van kamperen en fietsen houdt! Col de la Croix de Fer, Télégraphe, Galibier, Chaussy, Madeleine, Alpe D'Huez, ... zijn slechts enkele die vanuit deze camping makkelijk te bereiken zijn met de fiets. Personeel heel vriendelijk (Nederlandstalig). Camping ligt niet ver van een Carrefour & Lidl. Fietsenstalling, fietsenwasplaats, ... Veel schaduwplaatsen, sanitair wordt dagelijks schoolgemaakt en in orde.

Ein relativ schöner Campingplatz; aufgeräumt und sauber; die sanitären anlagen lassen jedoch zu wünschen übrig! Von mir höchstens 2 Sterne.
