- Five minutes’ drive to medieval Villé, and 40 to Colmar or Strasbourg
- Kids’ club and play area on site; skate park and municipal pool nearby
At the foot of the Vosges Massif and crossed by its namesake river, Camping Le Giessen is a smashing base near rural Bassemberg for families looking to explore France’s Bas-Rhin region, whether by car, on two legs, two wheels or on horseback.
But there’s never a dull moment if you’d rather stay on site, as sporty activities and night-time entertainments are organised all summer long by a bunch of energetic camp leaders. Mini discos and treasure hunts at kids club keep younger children happy, along with climbing frames, bouncy castles and the Aquatoon splash fountain (high season only).
Teens won’t have a chance to get bored and grumpy either, as there’s a skate park less than five minutes’ walk away, with Centre Nautique Aquavallées indoor swimming pool about the same - an outdoor pool opens in summer.
Families can take up sports like volleyball or pétanque, making new friends along the way, and evenings are covered with karaoke sessions and quizzes for all ages in the terrace restaurant, plus movie nights under the stars. You may be so busy that you never get to do any local exploring at all.
Open from 04/08/2023 to 11/03/2023

If you do manage to tear yourself away from all the fun back at camp, most explorations of the hilly Alsace region start with a drive past vineyards to the lovely town of Colmar. Stop a while here to take a canal cruise on a flat-bottomed punt and follow cobbled lanes lined with half-timbered houses to the Musée d’Unterlinden, packed full of great European art. Strasbourg (both 40 minutes’ drive) is another local gem, with a mighty Gothic cathedral, ornate palaces and canal-side strolls.
Stop off at Obernai for a tasting of slightly sparkly Alsace whites in wineries, while the hilltop Château du Haut-Kœnigsbour (both half an hour) is open for rampart tours and medieval armoury displays in its museums. Just not that into driving? Have a wander into Villé (20 minutes’ walk) for a meander around its historic city walls.
You’re so close to the German border here it seems almost rude not to cross over the Rhine to spend a day hiking in the Black Forest (an hour’s drive).
