We spent 7 nights at this campsite in August. Our pitch was allocated for us and was in the row next to the river. It was big and the views were fantastic. I had been concerned about the proximity to the river based on other reviews but as you have to climb up a steep bank to see it, I was not worried at all once on site. The noise from the river was pretty loud and definitely helped us to sleep!

All the facilities were fantastic and it was the little things that made a difference. Things like loo roll in the toilets, a designated sink with soap for washing hands and big basins with plugs for washing clothes and free table football! The restaurant on site was really good, although a limited menu.

The site had a mix of nationalities, but more British families than I had expected. Because of the small size, it felt really safe and the children all played together and were free to explore the site. It was really quiet from 10pm and because of the background noise of the river, we didn't hear anything through the night or in the morning. Apart from the church bells at 8am. The sun didn't get into the site until after 9am which meant that the van didn't get too warm in the morning.

We had a mix of weather. Sunny days it was about 30 degrees and we enjoyed the swimming pool next door. We did however have a couple of rainy days when it felt very chilly and meant that we couldn't do quite a much as we wanted to.

The only negative is that it isn't simple to get to the supermarket. We don't like to have to move the van lots so we had to take the cable car up to the town to get our shopping.

Fabulous site. Lovely atmosphere. Nice mix of couples, families and groups of mountain bikers, and very quiet and relaxed. Facilities weren't the newest but were clean and well maintained. There is a short (5 minute) walk to the Venosc telecabine which takes you up to Les Deux Alpes in about 10 minutes - up there are loads of restaurants, bars, cafes, etc and a number of well stocked supermarkets (although prices reflect the captive audience). The campsite itself has a restaurant open 6 days per week and a mobile pizza van on the other night. We ate twice in the restaurant - excellent entrecôte and frites, followed by some local ice- cream. Delicious.

We are keen mountain bikers but not into downhill so we were a bit nervous that everyone apart from us was in full downhill rig on the Bikepark, but we decided that that was simply because a lot of people had hired bikes and kit, and we were very comfortable on the green routes - L'Ange via Le Diable lift is particularly good fun. We'd recommmend the 680 walking route down from Le Diable lift, and 603 from Vallee Blanche - great views. We would have done longer walks e. G. To Lac Muzelle, but the average daily temperature was about 33 degrees, hence the lack of uphill walks!

If you are into walking and down hill biking (especially assisted by the list system) then this is a perfect location. We are already talking about going back!

This is a lovely little site in some very beautiful and spectacular scenery. With some 80 pitches we were able to choose our own from a row by the river and most of the time, with only 25% occupancy, pitches nearby were unoccupied. They were of good size, flat with 10 amp supply and water points nearby. Showers and loos were clean, with plenty of hot water and thoughtfully set out. Loos had seats and paper.

Monsieur and Madame were delightfully friendly and helpful, bread and croissants were available from them at reception each day on order. The site was very quiet with no entertainments although a swimming pool lies up the road nearby. The restaurant was open three days a week (Tue-Thurs) when we were there, with a small menu.

Families with children need to be aware of the Veneon Torrent, which rushes by the site and its name is appropriate. It is fast flowing, clean but ice-cold, and as it is used by EDF for power generation, its level can fluctuate unpredictably. I was bitten on the foot by a large mosquito and bathing it in the icy river was delicious!

There is lots to do around here, the highlight of our trip was a (scary) drive up to La Berard, along a road with no crash barriers or other concessions to the at times vertical drop, off the side of the single track road. Le Bourg d’Oisans is 20 minutes away with restaurants etc. , and a good Casino supermarket.

A delightful site and we hope to be back.

Recently returned from a skiing holiday. Stayed for 4 nights. Large plots, beautiful views and clean, tidy facilities. Plenty of hot water in the showers and drying racks for towels by a radiator. The restaurant wasn't open yet so did not have chance to experience the food. Would definitely return as it is so close to Les Deux Alpes and the telecabine up to the resort runs all day until 7pm. ( this changes to mornings and afternoons only in the summer season) Bread and croissants could be ordered in advance if required. Very quiet site which was pleasing. We hired our ski equipment in the resort and left it in the hire shop overnight so no lugging skis around.

Fabulous site. Location next to river, nestled in narrow valley. Large pitches, varied units, quite a few Brits, French, Italian, a few Dutch and German. Facilities built in the main house are quite old but perfectly adequate. Good supplies of hot water, well cleaned loos, washing machine, etc. Friendly and effective site management, Monsieur and Madame always around and very helpful.

Telecabine close by, local swimming pool next to site. Water activities company nearby.

Can't recommend it too highly.

This site is perfect. We would not hesitate in going back again. The facilities are clean & well kept, the pitches are of a good size, and the surroundings are spectacular. The view from the site is amazing & our pitch was right next to the river that comes down from the glacier.

The staff were friendly & helpful. Restaurant on site. We went on pizza evening & it was lovely - pizzas cooked in a proper pizza oven.

We stayed for 7 nights, and for such a small place there is so much to do, we could easily have stayed longer. There is paragliding, white water rafting, a 'Go Ape' type affair only a few hundred yards away and obviously good for walking & hiking. We have two children, 9yrs & 6yrs and we walked up to the waterfall & higher, about one & a half hours walk, which was enjoyable.

We also took the cable car up to Deux Alps a few times, and also right up to the Glacier on one occasion, and visited the fantastic ice cave. There is a reliable bus service which we used to go up to another view point, which was worth going to for the journey alone. It was like an episode from 'most dangerous roads'!

There is no pool, however next door is a municipal pool with a slide, which is supervised & very clean. It is 3 euros each, but if you go after 5. 30pm it's only 1 euro as it closes at 6. 30pm.

Fresh bread & croissants from the site shop in the mornings were delicious & the only reason the child friendliness only gets an 8 is because the river is very fast flowing & you can never be too careful.

We couldn't recommend this site enough, and will be returning next year.
