It's a smart, efficient Dutch campsite in France. The staff are charming, friendly and speak perfect English as you would expect. It's customer friendly - arrive in the lunch break without a booking and you find 'Come in and make yourself at home ' notices on the door and a list of which pitches which are free.

The pitches are a bit of a problem for those with caravans - many of them arranged in clusters of four and it only needs those who are there before you to spread their cars and gazebos to make it difficult to get into the corner you want. So we turned left soon after reception and pitched in an open field area instead. And we didn't want to be facing all those statics and cabins which are pretty closely packed.

There's a bar, a restaurant, a shop, and a swimming pool - and we didn't use any of them - we were up in the mountains every day. To be honest we would have been just as comfortable at the municipal site in the village which doesn't have all those facilities but is much more at the heart of things. In peak season when Belledonne is charging big prices that's certainly where we would go, but out of season when Belledonne only charges 14 euros with a discount card that's cheap enough.

As has been said it's a popular base for cyclists who are here in large numbers, mountain walkers walkers might want to camp higher in the hills up at La Grave, but for motorists looking for a base to spend a few days touring in this area Belledonne is a good choice down in the valley. It's clean, tidy and well run.

I booked this site through the caravan club for its close proximity to The Alp D'Huez stage of the Tour De France.

All the pitches are grass and divided into small groups separated by hedgerows electric hook ups are available. The site is Dutch owned and English is spoken well. The facilities were clean well looked after and the water hot. No seats on the Toilets though! Is that just a continental thing?? Breads and pastries are available to order from the shop but there is a queue to get them if you go first thing. The pool looked nice but we didn't use it or the restaurant. Only critism really was the wifi was expensive and more so because it was so slow. I had no 3G coverage with Vodafone. There is a kids club but can't say what it was like as we didn't have family with us. There is a freezer for your blocks, just make sure you read your info pack to get the best out of the site.

The site is geared up for cyclists and has a mechanic station with tools and bike wash. The Road Cylcing is fantastic with many of the Tour De France climbs on the doorstep, such as L'Alp D'Huez, Col De Galibier, Glandon, Sarenne, Croix De Fer, and we rode a few. There is also Mountain biking at Alp D'Huez and Les Deux Alpes. I can say Les Deux Alpes MTB was great, hooking your bike on the ski lift to get your ride to the top.

I would stay again it was a fantastic trip. Bear in mind the blood sucking insects in this area in the summer months they are a pain.

We visited here in 2006 as a young couple. We were drawn to the area for the activities but wanted a good campsite as it was our first foreign camping holiday so we used the eurocamp mark as our guide of a good site.

We were allowed to pitch anywhere and naively took the first pitch we found when we then discovered some better pitches further into the site.

Facilities were good, we didn't queue for showers/toilets and there was plenty of hot water.

Swimming pool was cold but nice on hot days. Not somewhere you would spend all day next too but good for an hour or so.

There is not much nearby, the local town is very small with a few local shops. We spent a lot of time in les duex alpes about 20-30 minutes up the hill. We were mainly there for the summer skiing so were up early and returned to the campsite for the afternoon (much to the amusement of the fellow campers!). There is plenty to do in the ski resorts during the summer so well worth some trips up there from the campsite.

A lot of people were out cycling and it is a tour de france area so great for road cycling.

Restaurant food was ok, not amazing but nothing really wrong with it. We used the takeaway once for the pizzas too.
