General

  • On the banks of the Seine, half an hour's train ride from Paris
  • Disneyland resort and UNESCO-listed Provins within an hour's drive
  • Bouncy castle, trampoline, pizzeria and shop selling artisan produce

Lots to do on site is at the River Seineside spot of Camping La Belle Etoile, but if any day you fancy an easy day trip out to the lights and sights of Paris, you can leave the car behind and hop upon a train to be there in an easy peasy 25 minutes...Plus, if you’ve got tiddlers in tow, then they’ll probably be properly delirious when they learn that days around Disneyland are well within their tiny reach, as a mere 45-minute train ride will have them goofing around with Mickey and Minnie among its 4,800-acre attraction-filled expanse.

But before you go bolting off for city days out or white knuckle times, you’d also be well advised to plan several days on site to spend some of your leisure time among its well-appointed family facilities: plenty is on hand to keep tiny peeps plenty occupied, with delighted squealing, bouncing and clambering among bouncy castles, a trampoline, a sandpit and playground kit at either of its two play areas, as well as ping pong tables, table football, a boules pitch and a sports pitch for bouts of sporting competition and – for more cerebral sorts – drawn out games at its giant outdoor chessboard.

Also designated for family funtime is the park’s seasonal pool area, with a heated pool and neighbouring kids’ pool for grownups and offspring to spend watery days, and a roomy sun terrace furnished with loungers for days spent basking, snoozing, reading, or however else you see fit to spend time stretched out by the water.

Multilingual hosts Luc and Yvonne have also thoughtfully placed the site’s snack bar and pizzeria very handily close to the pool for twixt-swim snacks and sustenance – the site team enthusiastically implore all guests to sample their speciality Brie de Melun pizza, and for grownups to guzzle a glass or two of the local artisan beer. Should you prefer to cater for yourself while on your hols, then that’s sorted too at the on-site shop, which sells a good range of regional specialties.

AVOID!! RUDE OWNER/DIRTY FACILITIES/DREADFUL SHOP & STAFF! 18/04/2017

    The female owner was polite & helpful but rarely seen, & completely the opposite of the male owner. The town outside of the camp site is beautiful.

    Disliked: 

    Our first family holiday with our children, and the male owner was incredibly rude as was his daughter! My children were repeatedly screamed at for no fault of they're own, on one occasion because we had taken ice cream cones out of the freezer within the shop to purchase! Apparently customers may only have the ice creams from the rear of the store in the storage (strange)...They had erected a bouncy castle to which my son was told by another male Co worker of the owner, that if he asks again when it will be ready he will not see or play on a bouncy castle ever again! HE IS AUTISTIC! Both my sons have learning difficulties & they were aware of this prior..my 3Rd oldest was terrified to use the camp sites lavatories because the owner had thrown a roll of toilet tissue at him whilst yelling at him in French, again why!? ...they made us all feel extremely unwelcome to the point we left early every single morning of our 2 week holiday, & only returned before they locked the gates at 11:00pm..they were clearly trying to get us to leave early as we were even forced to move our box trailer & car to the entry of our tent giving up our parking space to different campers who came & went on a nightly basis all because the owners made an error on the online booking that gave us a discount when we booked online, thus because we did not pay the full price for our stay, they went out of they're way to make it the worst first family holiday we could possibly have had! We are disgusted with the way they treated us & not only us, as we witnessed another lady be yelled at I front of other customers because she asked if they had any eggs or bread for sale in the camps shop! You can't have any of the basic day to day edibles unless you order days prior..(for a site of that size extremely inconvenient) ...our children did not need to hear the owners domestic fighting & arguing from they're home, which is slap bang in the middle of the camp sight on a daily basis!..we don't recommend this camp site to anyone with children! ...whether you pay full price or not, avoid at all cost! They're website bares no resemblance to the site at all~dirty showers/mouldy infant bathing area/no hand soap or hand dryer (tissues)/toilets COVERED in feaces from other campers only cleaned up late afternoon after my son trodden in half of it!/cafe-bar only open when the owner is bothered to open it, i can go on all day about the problems believe me.

Close to Paris but dangerous travelling in on the train. 27/08/2016

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Christopher M. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

    Cabin was ok

    Disliked: 

    The family owners live on site, it felt a little like the camp site was for them and not their guests. They shut the bar to have a finally meal one night.
    The train ride back from Paris is dangerous. Once you get off you have a half hour walk to the campsite in the dark. We were scared. If recommend you travel by day time and still the area is not great.
    Locally the town centre is not great, their is also a prison 1k away.
    Wifi available at 7e for the day! Too much

Fabulous and friendly 09/08/2016

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom salferg Confirmed

  • Electric optional grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    This site is only 25 mins from Paris by train and extremely reasonable. The owners speak great English (and German and French and probably Spanish too!) and will give you any advice you're looking for including the best tickets for your journey into the capital. The pitches are separated by hedges and a great size. The place was extremely family friendly and on our second night we had a meal in the bar which was lovely - although there was quite a wait for no obvious reason.
    The pool is small but great for our kids of 9, 6 and 4 (and 38) and for a short stop on the way down south it was brilliant.

    Disliked: 

    The toilet block near us was closed on the second night but another was very close by. Be aware, the walk to the station is about a mile, but really it was neither here nor there when you consider it.

    We arrived after a long journey for an overnight stopover.
    We would have quite liked to stay longer as the site is on the river and had a lot of facilities: nice pool, giant chess, table tennis,basketball etc.
    The owners were really friendly. The facilities were basic but clean.

Directions


Local attractions

Settled on the banks of the River Seine in the Seine-et-Marne department capital of Melun, La Belle Etoile is a super handy stopover spot with a train station and motorway within easy reach for day trips to further-flung lands. For sure, first stop should be Paris for tours around famed historic sights such as the Eiffel Tower, L’Arc de Triomphe, Sacré-Cœur and Notre Dame cathedral and, of course, for shop-til-you-drop day trips and investigative excursions around its many, many galleries and museums.

Next, the dreamland that is Disneyland resort: the most visited attraction in Europe, its vast 4,800 acres are filled with famed rides like Buzz Lightyear’s interactive dark ride or, for something more serene, scenic trips along the park’s monorail and the Disney film-themed Walt Disney Studios Park.

Très artistique Barbizon – the birthplace of the Realist art movement – is an easy 20 minutes’ drive away, and you can soak up a spot more local history at the similarly drivable and utterly spectacular 1,500-room Palace of Fontainebleau; set among 130 acres of parkland and gardens, this is France’s only royal and imperial château to have been continuously inhabited for seven centuries, so should most certainly be high up on anyone’s sightseeing itinerary while in and around Melun. The Baroque 17th-century château of Vaux-le-Vicomte is also within easy reach over in Maincy, and if you rather fancy a day trip to a smashing UNESCO World Heritage Site, then a jaunt to the medieval town of Provins is 50 minutes away by car and highly recommended.
