- 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.

Excellent site with clean facilities, friendly staff and level pitches
Quiet site close to lovely river. Perfect for swimming. Large …
By the river could swim and do rowing
What a gem- wish we stayed longer- I will definitely return one day
Lovely site but neighbouring village was very quiet although beautiful
We occupied the best pitch with river view shame about the weather

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.
