General

  • On the shores of Lac du Der in Champagne
  • Swimming pool with a play area and waterslide
  • Hire a bike to tackle the 36km route right outside the site

Pop the corks, for there's a lot to celebrate at , in the Haute-Marne department of France's Champagne province.

Its setting is sublime, on the shores of Lac du Der and in a national forest, with over 70km of shoreline to investigate and close to a load of watersports including plenty of places for fishing. (And it's near the village of Eclaron for one to purchase one's pastries et croissants in le morning.)

A 36-kilometre cycling route is right outside the site (bike hire is available from the team, of course) and you are after all in the Champagne province, with many a chance for popping corks and pouring…

When you arrive back from a day exploring the region (and exploring its bubbly wine), more action is on offer in the evenings via the team's organised entertainment like activities and shows including karaoke, live music and stuff just for kids.

The site has up to date facilities including a sports court, ping pong tables, a pétanque court, and modern loos and showers also suitable for guests with reduced mobility.

This site is a member of Yelloh! Village group.

Worst campsite I have ever had the misfortune of staying at! 31/05/2017

    Nothing.

    Disliked: 

    We were allocated pitch T05! It was tiny, right in front of the entrance barrier with the playground one side and the bar the other. There was an overhanging tree so only one position possible for the motorhome. The family next door had pitched their teenagers tent around 18 inches onto our pitch with the door facing us. The noise was awful, road and barrier noise until 10.30 and teenagers playing football after 12pm. We asked if we could be moved and were told that they had no others. I told the young lady that it was a terrible pitch and she agreed. We met a couple who were leaving the next day so asked if we could move to their pitch and were told it wasn't free. Hey also told us it was because we booked late...... or the week before. We then checked out 2 days early and were not even asked why. Disgusted at their customer service ethos and would never book another of their sites on principle. Have never stayed on a site which was so crammed and so money grabbing: horrible experience all around.

    Lovely site in an area of outstanding beauty. Was sat reading and butterflies and dragonflies would perch on you!
    Pool was lovely and the small lovely lakeside beach was very close.
    We didn't use the communal amenities but the roulette we stayed in was very clean.
    The cycle paths are all off road and easy to follow.

Directions


Local attractions

Lac de Der covers over 5000 hectares and its shoreline stretches over 70 kilometres, so you'll find lots of opps for shoreside hiking, mountain biking and cycling, along with two marinas, nautical centres and six – oui, six – supervised beaches for sunbathing, sailing, windsurfing and fishing. The area is also well famed for birdwatching with over 270 species including ducks, cranes and birds of prey calling it home.

But of course you're in the Champagne province. And might be feeling bubbly. Delve into the local cellars to sample the local wet wares, not forgetting to check out the regional charcuterie and the many creamy Haute-Marne cheeses…

The team also recommends a cycle around the route of the Der region's churches, noted for their wooden sides, and the 45-minute trip to pretty popular Nigloland, the theme park with 40 attractions for all ages.

Paragliding courses and sessions are also available nearby.
