General

  • Peaceful family-friendly site next to the Ognon river
  • Spectacular riverside setting a kilometre's stroll from Pesmes
  • Canoeing trips and fishing on the adjacent river and from Pesmes

Peaceful, pretty, next to a river and a short drive from the Jura mountains... if you reckon you can be as energised or as idle as you like at the Haute-Saône's Camping la Colombière, you'll surely reckon right.

Your idle options include just idling around this spectacularly scenic Franche-Comté site – 'beautiful' and 'stunning' are how chuffed former guests have summed up its setting – and it's easy to get active too, with canoeing and paddleboarding trips within a kilometre or close by at Marney lake. The Ognon river flows past the site if you'd care for some angling (or sitting lazily by the river if you can bag a waterside pitch).

Camping la Colombière is a quiet and family-friendly site in eastern France, a kilometre and within easy ambling distance from the spectacularly scenic town of Pesmes. Townie sightseeing (and activities, should you further please) are simply sorted from here too: Dole is 25 minutes' drive from here, Dijon 45, and both Beaune and Besançon within 55.

    We stayed two nights at this site and what a nice site it is. The staff were very helpful and friendly, we had a riverside pitch for our motorhome which was just brilliant. The hill top town is just across the river and well worth a visit in our opinion it's a hidden gem because of its location between Dole in the south and Gray in the north both great places to visit.

Clean site, free showers, pretty location, bring your kayak.03/08/2019

  • Liked: 

    Located on a bend in the river L'Ognon a short walk or cycle ride from the small but picturesque town of Pesmes which has a great Boulanger ie for fresh baguettes and crossoints, a small local type supermarket with everything you need.

    Kayaks can be launched directly from some riverside pitches on the site and there are spots in the river nearby suitable for swimming. The roads nearby are generally quiet and some cycle routes are signposted with maps available from the reception.

    The staff were friendly and helpful and spoke good English and were able to recommend nearby attractions.

    Washing machine facilities were available at the site but no drier. The showers were kept very clean and were free. The drinking water was clean and clear.

    Disliked: 

    Direct access to the river may not be suitable for some small children. 30+ minutes drive to many local attractions

Directions


Local attractions

The handsome little town of Pesmes on the banks of the Ognan has scenic sights aplenty including 16th-century houses, a medieval castle and the 12th-century Church of Saint-Hilaire with bell tower. Cross the bridge from town to the other side of the river to look back for the best views, of the 16th-century houses and the castle on Pesmes' hill.

A hugely famed old site is within easy reach of Camping la Colombière: the French Town of Art and History settlement of Besançon (45 minutes' drive), home to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of 17th-century fortress the Citadel of Besançon. This is a splendid spot for all ages and a must-do for a day trip: the citadel has several museums telling the heady tale of the human and animal habitation of the region, as well as a zoo, an insectarium, an aquarium and a farm to keep kids content.

If you're now up for some more energetic activity, it's about 20 minutes' drive from the site to Marnay, to get stuck into mountain biking and archery, and 40 minutes to the Acro'Mania adventure park for roaming around the forest of Chevigny-Saint-Sauveur.
