Clear waters of the river accessible to all for a canoe ride or a swim

General

  • Shaded site on the banks of the Aube
  • Spectacular and peaceful setting around a 19th-century dovecot
  • Direct river access, canoe hire, playground and indoor lounge

A riverside site on a 19th-century French estate... sound boastful enough yet? Get ready to get smug with a stay at Camping le Colombier on the banks of the Aube, in the fizzingly fab region of Champagne-Ardenne.

As you'll see from the pics, this is a lushly viewsome place, green and flower-filled with loads of room for stretching out and serious idling. And as you might gather from the name, there's a dovecot on site too: settle down before it for a picnic to see how many pigeons you can spy flitting in and out of the colombier holes...

Camping le Colombier is a mere minute's meander from the Aube department village of Dienville, in a Champagne-Ardenne setting between Paris and Strasbourg. It has direct access to the river for active days canoeing and swimming; hire a canoe from the team for serene hours drifting along the water.

Facilities include a well-equipped playground with trampoline, along with an indoor lounge with TV, dartboard, table football and squishy sofas.

Bakeries and restaurants are within easy strolling distance.

Lovely Site Very Friendly 06/24/2019

    A charming little gem a treat to stay in such an idyllic location in the heart of a small town. The owners who have been open less than a year were friendly, helpful and were working exceedingly hard to make the most of this lovely site. The showers and toilets were clean and functional but I am sure they would be on the list of refurbishment for the future. We look forward to returning.

    Quiet location

    Disliked: 

    Facilities could do with make over...they were dark, cold and a bit gloomy. I hate this "no loo seat" thing in France and having no soap, hand towels/dryers or bins is ridiculous!

From the manager...

We would like to thank you for your review. Since we took over last year this place, we are conscious that the old sanitary block is out of date and "gloomy" and have already planned the total refurbishing of it in october. In the mean time we started monday to repaint it in bright colors and to change what needs to be changed before high season.

Directions


Local attractions

The lush waters of the Aube are right to hand from the site for swimming, paddling and canoeing, but if you seek yet more watery times it's an easy 10-minute drive to the Aube reservoir and its two lakes Amance and Temple. Make for Lac d'Amance for watersports including jetskiing and motorboating (this is the biggest watersports lake this close to Paris), and to Temple for birdwatching, fishing and a more peaceful vibe; motorboats aren't allowed on this part of the reservoir.

The lakes are part of the woodland and water landscapes of the Orient Forest Regional Natural Park (Lac d'Orient, 25 minutes' drive from Camping le Colombier, is the park's third lake). A 42-kilometre bike path weaves through the trees around all three lakes for scenic rides, followed by a lengthy laze on one of the three sandy beaches of Lac d'Orient, the park's biggest.

By car, Aube department capital and ancient town Troyes is 40 minutes' drive away, straight through the forest. Or give the kids a splendid day out by driving south for 15 minutes instead, to arrive at the Nigloland amusement park, one of the most visited in France.
