  • Outdoor pool, playground and restaurant and bar

What a pretty rivery site… Camping Le Violu is a riverside campsite in the gorgeousness of the Vosge department, in comely green surroundings close to the commune of Gemaingoutte.

As you might reckon, outdoor activities are in this area by the weeks' worth: have at it at some hiking, horse riding, fishing and tennis nearby along with the swimming and watery sports on the river – or head some distance south for the climbing, gliding and wildlife watching of the eye-wateringly scenic Ballons des Vosges Nature Park.

Le Violu has basic but cleanly kept facilities including an outdoor pool, a playground and a restaurant and bar, along with a laundry room with washing machines and tumble dryers, a washing-up area and a toilet and shower block. The spacious pitches are divided by hedges.

Le Violu welcomes les chiens; lots of long dog-friendly walks are around in the site surroundings.

    I really like this site. It's not too big but has plenty of space. The grass is kept very tidy and there are sunny pitches as well as pitches shaded by trees. Shower block and toilets are kept very clean and the showers have plenty of hot water available throughout the day. Drinking water is available, I used the outside wash area taps to fill my aquaroll. There is a separate motorhome service point and a chemical toilet disposal for caravans in the toilet/shower block.
    There is a small play area for kids with swings and sea saw etc. Lovely views of the hills and forests. Supermarkets are not far away reachable by car not walking or cycling. UK mobile phone reception is good, but no French TV signal with my portable TV aerial.
    There was a mix up with price as the €1.70 car payment isn't included on, the lady here was very friendly and honoured the price set on Pitchup. She didn't speak English, but we communicated with my very limited knowledge of French (about 50 words), hand gestures and a few laughs.
    A lovely site I do recommend visiting, and I will certainly visit again.

Local attractions

In between all the outdoorsy days and peaceful sightseeing, go village, town and attraction hopping around the region's highlights, like to the Cathédrale de Lumière at Toul and the arty Museum Georges de La Tour in Vic-sur-Seille.

Another popular place to visit nearby is the small town of Ribeauville, 19 kilometres from Camping Le Violu in Alsace's Haut-Rhin department and on the Alsace wine route. It's a medieval town with many an old sight to see: wander its narrow streets to get to its town walls and the Tour des Bouchers, the old wheat storage hall and the seventeenth century Maison des Ménétriers.

Also 19km away is the town of Riquewihr, a touristy pull for its old architecture. The town is one of Les Plus beaux Villages de France and has a sixteenth century centre, medieval fortifications and a castle overlooking the whole lot.
