General

  • Peaceful tree-filled park with shaded pitches near the Loue river
  • Five kilometres from the huge Chaux Forest
  • Two big outdoor pools with helter-skelter slides

Camping Le Val d'Amour is a leafy and lush family park near the banks of the Loue river, between Burgundy and Switzerland in the peaceful Val d'Amour region of the Jura department. It's a holidaymakers' haven, with easy access to local walking, cycling and horse riding trails through the humungous Chaux Forest, and is 20 kilometres from Dole and 15 kilometres from Arbois.

Set across almost four hectares, the site's facilities include a pétanque pitch and two pools (one for adults and one for kids, lifeguarded between 2pm and 7pm), and staff organise sporting competitions for guests throughout the summer season. The closest tributary of the Loue river is 500 metres from the site; reach the Loue itself in a pleasant 20-minute stroll for fishing and paddling.

There's oodles to keep kids entertained too, with organised activities and entertainment as well as the separate kids' pool with big waterslides, plus swimming lessons during peak season if they need it. The site also has a big playground with a trampoline, as well as green space for football, basketball and volleyball games.

Grownups are also well catered for – while the kids are keeping themselves busy, you can book in for a relaxing massage before hitting the tiles at one of the site's regular dance evenings, or take a slightly more peaceful nighttime dip in the pool.

Handily, there are several shops in the village, including a nearby bakery and a wine shop, plus a bar and grocery shop, a supermarket, a fromagerie, a pharmacy and a post office.

Stunning location, Lovely pool (as long as you have your speedos)08/20/2019

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Liked: 

    This is a very relaxed site (until it comes to swimming, see the disliked section!!) in a stunning rural location with plenty of trees for shade, very friendly welcome on reception, gave us a choice of 5 pitches to choose from, the site is set in agricultural land with a path that you can walk through the middle (great for dog walks). you are allowed to BBQ which is nice.

    There is a little village (turn left at the main rd and it is a 5 min walk) which has a simple, authentic pizza restaurant frequented by the locals and shop where you can buy fresh bread and croissant from the bakery where it is made next door every morning, the town of Dole is about 30 mins away and is an authentic French town with beautiful buildings and shops, treat yourself to one of the cakes from one of the patisseries because you wont see anything like it in the UK.

    Onsite there is a boule court, good play area, snack bar and the 2 water slides are great fun. The pool stays open all day and is open late until 10.30pm (on a Thursday night I think) however this is accompanied by loud music which didn't really fit with the feel of the site.

    Nice family atmosphere on site, quiet in the main.

    Disliked: 

    Ok so the pool, the site have an officious pool attendant (maybe life guard i'm not too sure) who's job it is to make sure everyone is dressed appropriately, it seems in France it is deemed unhygienic to swim in anything but lycra so boys you need your speedos or you just wont get in, we could see what the difference was between PROPER swimming shorts designed for swimming and a lycra version but he just would not budge on it. thing is when you are on holiday in a remote village you don't have your full wardrobe with you, and there are no shops, so that's a bit of a holiday runnier really which is a shame because its a lovely site other than that. We booked the site for the pool, so it was really disappointing the kids couldn't have some fun with their dad because of this. Don't let this put you off, just get the right shorts before you go.
    I would have been much happier if the pool attendant was policing the children going down the 2 water slides and crashing on top of each other at the bottom which is frankly dangerous, rather than worrying about the type of swim shorts we were wearing.
    Shower block is ok. there are no toilet seats, the hygiene of which is questionable when you consider the swim short obsession.

From the manager...

Thank you for your nice comment.

We are sorry for the swimming pool, but you have to wear a swimming suit.
The swimming short are forbidden because of hygien problem.
We sell swimswuit at the swimming pool. Your husband did not ask them?

See you soon.

Best regards

    Ce camping familial nous a tout d'abord séduit par sa piscine, et toboggans. Les animations tant pour les enfants, que pour les adultes, ont permis aussi d'apprécier également le séjour.

    Notre objectif était de profiter tous les jours de cette dernière, et d'occuper les plus jeunes enfants, notamment pour qu'ils lâchent leurs téléphones, ce pour quoi je pense que la mission est réussie. Ils ont passé l'essentiel du temps soit à jouer avec les autres enfants, soit à la piscine, soit aux animations, soit à manger... sans compter la petite sortie kayak organisée par le camping

    En vacances avec 7 personnes au total, ce camping permettait d'être tous logé sur le même emplacement, lorsque la plupart sont limités à 6 personnes. Aussi, pour un montant raisonnable pour notre grande famille, nous avons pu apprécier notre semaine au camping

Directions


Local attractions

France's second-largest forest, Chaux, covers more than 20,000 hectares, and there are loads of woodland walking, horse riding and cycling trails to traverse elsewhere; you can reach the foothills of the Jura in 15 kilometres.

Canoeing and kayaking are available at Quingey, about 30 kilometres from the site's local town of Ounans, and the spa town of Salins-les-Bains is less than 20 kilometres away. Salins is best known for its UNESCO-listed salt mines, open to the public for guided tours of its underground chambers. There's also the Salt Museum there to tell you all about the town's salty story, so plenty here to fill a day.

For vino quaffing and vineyard tours, visit the little town of Arbois, 15 kilometres from base. The town's also home to the Jura Vineyard and Wine Museum, set on the ground floor of Château Pécauld and made up of an outdoor vineyard-style area and an indoor exhibition space.

Other sights to behold include Besançon and its 16th-century Granvelle Palace; the Cathedral of Besançon; the Museum of Time and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Besançon Citadel.
