Campsites in France and Switzerland

Campeole Le Brabois, Nancy
This site is very handy for the motorway and so as a one night stop off and has regular buses to the city centre.  We managed to pop in to Nancy for a quick look around on our one night stop.  A green and peaceful site with good facilities.

Camping Municipal, Masevaux
This is a little gem of a site, flat and green with some trees, a river along one side and still only five minutes walk from the shops in the town.  The facilities are good, kept clean and there is plenty of hot water.  Wifi is available.

Camping du Brec, Entrevaux
This site is by the very picturesque river that runs through the gorge and is therefore very popular with people with boats.  The facilities are shabby, but clean and functioning and there is plenty of hot water.  The marked pitches are a good size, although your hook up can be quite a distance, we needed both our cables.  The owners are friendly and helpful and even bring your ordered bread to your van in a morning.  The site has a bar and there is a supermarket very near.

Camping de Savel, Mayres-Savel, near La Mure
The site is by the lake and in June it was easy to have a lake view, as it was fairly quiet.  The pitches are mostly marked out and a reasonable size.  The facilities are acceptable and the view from the washing up area is good.  There is free wifi at the very pleasant bar, which also serves food.  The site is excellent for some marked good walking routes.

Les Ripettes, Pont de Vaux, north of Macon
The site has large marked pitches with trees and grass.  The facilities are clean and unisex and the owners are friendly and helpful.  There is free wifi around reception.  Cycling and walking routes from the site.

De Vivier aux Carpes, Seraucourt le Grant, south of St Quentin
A very shady site with marked pitches and fishing available.  Very feeble showers, otherwise although the facilities are dated they are OK.

Camping Isola, Guao, between Bellinzona and Locarno
This site has only a few touring pitches and these are small and quite cramped, but OK for one night.  It is a flat site with a pool, bar and shop.  The facilities are clean and modern and there is plenty of hot water.
