We stayed for 9 days this summer. As you are camping 720 m up (equivalent to camping on top of a welsh mountain), the weather was mixed. We had 2 days of thunderstorms, very impressive! But being a thunderstorm you knew it would blow over.
The campsite was very windy, being situated in a crossroads of valleys. Strapping needed to hold down our awning.
Campsite is clean and well managed, English speaking staff were willing and able to help with our gas problem and soon had it sorted!
Small but lovely swimming pool which gets very busy from about 3pm to close.
Lovely small bar and restaurant who also do take away pizzas which is always a bonus.
Small club for young children, with lots of different activities.
Clean and new toilet facilities (seem to be more men facilities, probably down to the cycling).
If you get the right emplacement, you can sit and view the top of Pic Blanc (10000 feet) mountain complete with cable car and snow on top.
We stayed here for a week, it's a Castels site so we were expecting high quality. Being high season the site was very busy, almost all of the units were Dutch families and some of them were part of larger groups who took turns to meet up in the evenings on their pitches, this kind of took away from sense of being in France.
A visit to the site restaurant helped as some staff were French and the menu was quite varied and reasonably priced The bar area was very quiet in the evenings and there was no sense of social activity around it, no activity was laid on there except for one evening which had some very good guitar playing,
The pool is quite small and was up by the restaurant. There is a small shop area on the site, sells croissant pastries ice cream Dutch and English papers etc
The location of the site is about 7 km from bourg d'ossians, easily cyclable for competent cyclists on the main road as there is cycle lanes along both sides.
There is loads to do in the area with cable cars / cycle routes and walking in the parc d'ecrins If you don't want to take your camper off site, the nearby village of Allemont is about 3km away with a couple of reasonable pizza and bistro facilities as well as a well stocked spar -( larger casino in bourg with fuel).
The toilets were spotless, 2 toilet locations, the better one being under the chateau. There is even a dishwasher.
We struggled to find the water taps, we were told they would be on our pitch -but they were not, we finally found a couple unmarked and low down on the power poles on a couple of nearby pitches.
Teenagers could be bored here unless they are sporty cycling types -then they would find loads to do, there are good ball games facilities on site -but not much for younger children
We would stay again, but we would also consider the camping municipal in nearby Allemont which is located next to restaurants and a municipal swimming pool
This is a pretty and friendly site in a really picturesque area, with a good selection of shops and restaurants in Bourg D'Oisans.
There are many cycling routes in the area if you are fit and keen, but some amazing panoramic views can be seen by car and cable car - La Grave in particular. Lots of exciting activities in the local area - paragliding, rafting etc and a terrific day was spent at the adventure park nearby.
On site the facilities are good and well kept.
The pitches vary in size but we were disappointed with their condition - uneven with little grass and not what we expected from a 4* site.
The sanitary blocks were cleaned twice daily and the showers were hot, but the ladies toilets under the chateau are in need of attention!
