Heated swimming pool with removable roof

General

  • Lakeside site in a region of Renaissance palaces and listed buildings
  • Waterpark with five pools and lake with beach, watersports and fishing
  • Snack bar, bakery and bar-restaurant serving French and Bressan dishes

What a waterpark! For not only are there five (oui, five, and all fab) pools at the aquatic centre of Rhône-Alpes site of Camping La Plaine Tonique, there's a 90-hectare lake too: it's surely safe to say that this could be the most vast campsite waterpark in all the land.

The lake is a top Ain department spot for watersports and fishing among its beaut waters, or you could determine to merely laze on its fine sand beach idly watching the boats and other craft bobbing about on the water. No matter what you decide to do, the waterpark and beach are all lifeguarded for safe times for all ages.

La Plaine Tonique is a couple of minutes' drive from Montrevel-en-Bresse and 18 kilometres from the department capital of Bourg-en-Bresse. A wide range of other activities are available aside from the water: you could shoot arrows on target (or not) in an archery session, challenge the family team to a round of miniature golf, or let the friendly and helpful team entertain you at the magic and clown shows, concerts and parties run regularly for all ages.

Reception's your destination if you want to check your emails, surf the web and collect snail mail, or to access info on the region and its activities and attractions or tips from the amiable team. Trails lead straight from the site for mountain biking, cycling and strolling; paintball, karting and an equestrian farm are all available a couple of kilometres away.

Once you're out of the water or have brushed off the sand from your relaxed and newly tanned bod, it's an easy amble to find French and Bressan dishes at the site's bar-restaurant, cleverly set next to the lake. A snack bar and bakery are also on site.

Please note

  • Liked: 

    Size of pitch. Great swimming pool.

    Disliked: 

    Grim appearance of communal areas. Did not feel like a happy place. Cold chips at the Snack Bar served by a disinterested teenager. Unattractive village. Glad we were not spending our holiday proper there.

From the manager...

Dear Sir or Madam,
We are sorry to read that you didn't enjoy your visit.

We agree that the city center of Montrevel-en-Bresse is not particularly pretty. Yet, the agents of our information point have a lot of very beautiful places to visit or pretty places of stroll to suggest! Have you questioned them?

We don't understand what you mean about the general atmosphere. We welcome many families with children; in addition, with the infrastructure in place (playgrounds, beach, aquatic center, water slides, water games, water activities, ...) the campsite is rather lively and joyful!

Finally, the snack is not managed by the campsite but we relay your comment to the manager, hoping that special attention will be paid to the involvement of employees for 2019.

Best regards,

The team of La Plaine Tonique

Great location lake especially and pool fantastic. Staff very helpful 26/08/2018

  • Liked: 

    Proximity to lake. We were in citron area and was just a tennis ball throw away.
    Lake was fantastic. Kids preferred it to the pool. Playgorm to jump off which our kids loved.The inflatables were a massive hit and very reasonable at 5 euro for 30 mins. Pitch we had was very spacious and in shade surrounded by trees and near to lake and pool as we requested. Staff were very friendly. Lots of security guys so felt extremely safe. Lifeguards at lake too.

    Disliked: 

    Citron toilets and showers weren't the cleanest. I tried others and they were much cleaner and modernised too. Can get quite noisy when it is beach party night. We didn't mind it but can imagine for others it might have been too much.
    Pool closed far too early especially in August.

From the manager...

Dear Sir or Madam,

Thanks a lot for your comment. We are pleased that you enjoyed the campsite and its infrastructure !

In high season, a cleaning service agent is present all the day in each of the sanitary blocks for a continuously cleaning. However, as the citron block is placed at the edge of the beach, it is used by both campers of the citron sector and beach users. Despite the vigilance of the agent, toilets and showers are more quickly dirty than the others. We apologize for the inconvenience.

This summer, a dance party was organized on the beach every Tuesday night until around 11 pm. This party was very appreciated by our customers. To avoid annoyances, we recommend guests who do not wish to be disturbed by the campsite's entertainment to ask for a location away from the beach.

We hope to welcome you again next year,
Looking forward,

The team of La Plaine Tonique

Bonjour,

Nous vous remercions pour votre note et vos encouragements. Nous sommes ravis que le camping et les animations proposées vous aient plu, et que notre équipe ait répondu à vos attentes.
En haute saison, un agent propreté est présent de 7h à midi et de 14h à 19h dans chacun des blocs sanitaires afin de garantir des locaux propres toute la journée, y compris les bacs à vaisselle.
Si cela n’est pas le cas, nous invitons nos clients à le signaler à la réception du camping afin que le nécessaire soit fait dans les plus brefs délais.

Au plaisir de vous accueillir de nouveau à La Plaine Tonique,

L’équipe de La Plaine Tonique

Bonjour,

Nous vous remercions pour votre commentaire. Nous sommes ravis que le camping vous ait plu et que votre accueil ait répondu à vos attentes !

Nous prenons bonne note de vos remarques. La Brasserie et le snack ne relèvent pas de la même gérance que le camping mais nous transmettons vos suggestions aux responsables.
En ce qui concerne l'animation en haute saison, un concert/spectacle/tournoi sportif/soirée à thème est proposé chaque soir. Le programme d'animation journée et soirée est mis en ligne chaque semaine sur le site internet de La Plaine Tonique www.laplainetonique.com et sur sa page Facebook, et affiché sur tous les blocs sanitaires et panneaux d'affichage sur place.

Au plaisir de vous accueillir de nouveau une prochaine année au camping,

Bonjour,

Nous vous remercions pour votre note mais regrettons de constater que vous n'êtes pas pour autant satisfaits de votre séjour ! Nous sommes étonnés de votre remarque sur l’animation et les activités : entre les activités nautiques/motonautiques (bateau à pédales ou électriques, paddle, canoë/kayak, parachute ascensionnel, ski nautique, etc) et terrestres (mini-golf, tennis, beach volley, badminton, 5 circuits VTT, 22 sentiers pédestres), le panel d’activités gratuites ou payantes proposé aux adultes et jeunes adultes est plutôt large. Une ferme équestre, un karting et paintball situés à moins de 2km viennent compléter l’offre de La Plaine Tonique. Des tournois sportifs et des jeux sont organisés sur place en journée et des concerts/spectacles/soirées dansantes/soirées à thème sont proposés en soirée. Le programme d’animation est affiché sur tous les panneaux d’affichage du camping et mis en ligne sur notre site internet et nos réseaux sociaux.
La superficie du camping de 15 ha complique la tâche des installateurs de réseau sans fil. Toutefois, soyez assurés que nous nous démenons sur le dossier WIFI afin de proposer le plus rapidement possible un service de qualité à nos clients.
Enfin, en ce qui concerne votre incompréhension concernant un trop perçu, je vous remercie de nous transmettre davantage de détails par email sur contact@laplainetonique.com.
Si toutefois vous changiez d’avis, nous serons ravis de vous accueillir de nouveau en séjour,
L’équipe de La Plaine Tonique

Directions


Local attractions

The Sougey Farm, the Royal Monastery of Brou, the medieval city of Pérouges, the Cerdon caves and Touroparc Zoo are all within an hour of the site. La Plaine Tonique is partnered with many local attractions and can offer discount to park guests: ask for more info from the team at reception.

Half an hour from the site and its vast waterpark is another watery body at Bouvent leisure park, set beside a 21-hectare lake with sailing schools, kayaking, supervised rowing sessions and lessons of all sorts. A path leads around the edge of the lake if you'd prefer to stroll, or you could take the fitness or orienteering trail, go fishing, tee off at the nine-hole golf course or find a secluded spot in the picnic area.

A must-do local option is a trip to Bourg-en-Bresse, to see the spectacular church of Notre Dame and the old town centre, around the pretty Place de l'Hotel de Ville and the surrounding streets with medieval and Renaissance buildings.
