It is, of course, in a green valley. And Camping Verte Vallée is in the Ballons des Vosges Regional Park too, in what a previous guest happily hails as a 'fantastic location': if you're champing at the bit for much mountain hiking, climbing, watersports or winter skiing, this is oh so very much the place to be.
This splendid site is close to the mountain town of Xonrupt-Longemer, surrounded by the summits of the Vosges nine kilometres from the famed ski town of Gérardmer. The local land is crammed with outdoor adventures to try, including river swimming and fishing, swimming in Longemer and Gérardmer lakes, or hiking the spectacular Route des Crêtes along the ridge of the Vosges mountains.
You might dither somewhat when deciding what to do first – understandably, as there's simply heaps – so make a natter with the friendly team top of your to-do list when you arrive: the staff here are properly passionate about this gorgeous part of France and can pass on tips of all types on what to see and do in the surroundings.
The team also prides itself on the warm welcome, amiable atmosphere and spotless levels of cleanliness throughout the site. There are excellent facilities too, including a handsome pool with retractable roof for swimming in all weathers; fishing right from the grounds; pétanque and tennis, a TV room, a games room and a summer kids' club. Kids also have their own paddling pool to splash around in, and a play area to bounce about at: do ensure they make their aquaintance with Sophie the inflatable giraffe...
Eats of all sorts are easily found at Xonrupt-Longemer and Gérardmer, but if you'd rather tuck in on site, there's a bar with terrace, a food shop and permission granted for pitchside barbecues.

To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details).

This stunning part of France is between Alsace and Lorraine, in jaw-droppingly scenic countryside among lakes, waterfalls, woodland and mountains, with a wide range of activities for all tastes.
Among the many memorable options on offer is a hike along the Route des Crêtes, four kilometres away, for spectacular scenery and views of Alsace, the Alps and the Black Forest. There's a full 89 kilometres of this trail to tackle should you so wish, on its run from Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines to Cernay; it's best to plan a hike during the months from April to November, as snow makes most of the route impassable in the winter months.
Another must-see is the market town and well-known ski resort of Gérardmer (nine kilometres), which comes with 40 runs on levels from beginner to black; cultural events and activities all year round, and yet more viewsome vistas. Sailing, canoeing, kayaking and a sandy beach are all at Lac de Gérardmer for watersporters, or you could stroll a simple 300 metres from Camping Verte Vallée to Lac de Longemer for more of the same.
Also recommended by the site team are the guided tours and tastings of La Confiserie des Bonbons des Vosges (20 kilometres), a small firm of artisan sweetmakers using traditional Vosges recipes and techniques. Further afield at 50 kilometres, drive up to Château du Haut-Koenigsbourg, high up on a rocky Vosges outcrop, for views over the Route des Vins and the Alsace plain below.
