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 díOisans 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.

This site is paradise. We had a large pitch near the river which was beautiful. Many different nationalities on the site with a few other English campers. The owners were very friendly and you can order fresh bread each day. They do sell a few bits and piece in the shop but we stopped in Bourg`Oisans to stock up. There are also supermarkets in les deux alpes but not much in venosc (although it's very pretty)it's a fantastic area for walking. We were there at the beginning of July and it was very hot so we found the walking hard work! But the scenery is so stunning it takes your breathe away. The cable car up to les deux alpes is 5 minute wAlk and the ride up is superb. The campsite is clean with excellent facilities. We would definitely go back. The most beautiful views we have ever had whilst camping

Les Champs de Moulin is a quiet site deep in the Veneon valley beneath Les Deux Alpes. As the valley faces east-west it does however get lots of sun all day (when itís not raining that is!). The site is used a lot by downhill-mountain bikers who use the trails up in Les Deux Alpes, which is easily and cheaply accessed by the telecabine lift a couple of hundred metres along the road. (Euro 5. 40 return or one way in June 2013). Site facilities are very good and plentiful, though a bit sombre as they are enclosed to enable use of the site in winter. Bread is baked on site and can be pre-ordered the day before, and there is a small restaurant with rather limited opening hours (Tartiflette E 13. 40). Portions are very generous! Just along the riverside road is a municipal pool with slides, which was free until early July. There is also a centre for organising various adventure activities such as rafting, and canyoning just nearby. The village of Venosc, which rises up the valley side opposite the site, is very pretty and hosts several arty-crafty type shops and a few character restaurants (though we didnít use these). From Venosc if you want to walk up to Les Deux Alpes there is a well-graded footpath - it takes about 1hr 40m. Or you can ride up and walk down. Telecabine fare is the same single or return though. There is a Via Ferrata between Venosc and Les Deux Alpes called Perron, but as far as we are aware is really only for experienced and very fit ferratarists. We chose to do a slightly milder version near St Christophe, which is further up the valley road (not suitable for caravans). The ferrata is in two sections, an easy family route starting near St Christophe and a rather more challenging one starting at the activity centre by the river, where you can hire the kit. As we have done ferratas before we did the harder route without a guide (about 3 hours fairly intensive climbing) but beginners may benefit from using a guide. Overall, Champs de Moulin is an excellent site for those who are not looking for organised entertainment, but are looking for lots of outdoor activities.
