On arrival the site looks very well organised with pin coded traffic barriers, the reception was busy and staff friendly.
The pitches are mainly on a sloping pitches as the site is on a hillside overlooking the lake. The pitches are smaller than expected.
The lack of wireless access on the pitches was a big complaint by the many Dutch visitors but as I was on 3G at no extra cost I didn't find it an issue.
The ablutions were cleaned in the morning and early evening so we're not up to a standard expected of a 4 star site. The showers were in need of an overhaul to say the least, no excuse for the huge amount of cobwebs which were there for our entire visit 8 nights and probably still there now.
The on site shop was basic to say the least but did supply fresh bread on a daily basis, the bar and restaurant were bordering on the expensive side 80 euro for two small beers to cans of orange two french fries one with a hotdog sausage no bread bun, two small steaks, no salad, mushrooms or onion rings just fries and a burger sized steaks.
Local supermarkets around 2. 5 km away so food shopping was not an issue.
Swimming pools and slides were very good but caution the poolside was extremely slippy and an accident waiting to happen. No lifeguards or staff supervising and the slide became a kids free for all.
The site is lacking general upkeep and I believe this was due to lack of staff who were overworked and underpaid ( comment made by another English family who had chatted to the staff).
Our trailer tent was robbed whilst we were sleeping on our second night, they gained access by cutting a huge hole in the awning window so not to make a noise. Our trailer tent was not the only one robbed that night so word of warning don't leave anything on charge in awnings I. E. Mobile phones, iPads, laptops etc. On discovery of the burglary the staff were very helpful and phoned the police for me stating that nothing like this had never happened before. When I had to attend the police station to make statements I was informed that it was common in the campsites around the town of Langres.
All in all the site is nice picturesque location however, poor ablutions, not enough staff, poor wi-fi at pitches and no security cameras or guards patrolling what is a known problem area.
I would not visit this site again unless the issues identified are rectified, I. E. Cleanliness of ablutions and security.
We used this site as it was near to the lake and also the walled town of Langres, and it lived up to expectations. The pitches are tiered so most will have a view over to the lake, and we certainly had a view to enjoy. Because of the tiering I would say be careful if you have children as the edges has sharp drops. The walk to the lake is quite steep and apart from a few restaurants it is quiet by the lake. The beach is gravely sand but clean and the water was clean. You can easily cycle around the lake, or part of it if not too energetic. Lots of mice shade. The site itself was clean and tidy and the toilet facilities very good. Two pools inside and outside, to be honest the temperature was pretty much the same for both, bracing! We tried the restaurant but while the food was tasty it was a bit pricey and not much of it. The staff were, well a little bit rude to be honest, they did what they had too and not much more. English was spoken but they preferred French it seemed. We stayed 4 nights and then went in to the town where we could have stayed at the Aire but after taking the petit train and walking to see the sites we moved on to our next stop.
OK, five nights on site lovely area and lovely site from the off the feeling was good pick the site you like the most and set up, most have a view of the lake fully serviced pitches as well a tented area in a field above the MoHO pitches. The restaurant was excellent the food and wine very good, however the take away chicken was not very hot and tough. The chips mushy and cold so not recommended by this user, the site is high up and a bike ride down to lake level was a piece of cake, on the return not so take this into account when setting off on your cycle, nice little Auberge and bars down at the lake and a bike/walk way to the town of Langres which is worth a visit. (we actually moved to the town for a few days before setting off to our next site and found the campsite there very good and inside the town fortifications) This site is well maintained and clean staff excellent the little shop had French bread fresh baked at the shop every day and other sundry useful items toilets, very clean and supplied with toilet paper showers could be hotter not a big prob in hotter weather but it was not always sunny during our stay and a coolish shower was not very welcome The pools were excellent the games room was not open at our time of staying but looked up to their standard
A beautiful spot but had that end of season uncared for feel. We were initially sent to a tiny pitch that was crammed in amongst 4-5 others. Disappointing for a 4* site we thought especially as we had booked well in advance. There was no problem when we asked to move and we found a much more suitable spot and could even see a bit of the lake. Outdoor pool though pretty view was as last time we visited very cold. The nearest toilet block was most odd. Urinal on view as you approached and only 3 unisex loos. Not cleaned that regularly either. The showers were excellent having sinks hair drier etc but oddly no cubicles with just a sink and mirror. Washing up facilities excellent and water very hot. Try the cycle rout round the lake at your peril. Excellent till you reach the 3k of rocks to scramble over clearly a work in progress.
We stayed here for three nights in August 2013. Facilities are excellent, shop, restaurant, bar/brasserie, pool. Pitches vary in size, we had a huge one but many are sloping and those with a view of the lake tend to be quite small. The site is in a beautiful spot, on the lake with many water sports available. There was a plentiful supply of hot water and the showers worked well.
Unfortunately, unlike another site in the same group, this one gave an air of being uncared for. Rather scruffy overall and there seemed to be a lack of staff. The Bar/Brasserie did not open until 3 in the afternoon (the info said 2pm). No morning drinks, no lunches, no coffee before 3. Very hard to understand.
This site has stunning views of the lake from the terrace & outside pool. Very few pitches have views of lake. It's a short walk down to the lake where's there's a sailing club & people fishing.
As mentioned previously the pitches are very small. It was wet when we arrived & most people had great difficulty in getting onto the pitches. Many of the the big motorhomes struggled to fit onto the space provided, as did the larger caravans. Watching a couple in their brand new motorhome having to be towed off a pitch (that they couldn't fit onto) & hitting a tree on the way to another pitch made me feel very sorry for them. We refused to take our allocated pitch as it was all mud & uneven, we also refused the 2nd option as our elevating roof hit the tree above, so we told them where we wanted to go and that was fine. It's an expensive site because of the 2 pools, restaurant, bar etc, but more attention should be paid to the size & condition of the pitches, which is where you spend most of your time.
