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.

Overall excellent site with great pool - fantastic value for money.08/27/2022

  • Electric optional grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Great site with spacious pitches and EHU included. Facilities clean and well-equipped. Check-in friendly and easy. My 11-YO loved the pool and slides (but beware - no swim shorts allowed!). The pizza van on-site was great, although closed early with the bar. There were some evening activities (on the night we stayed there was a night swim). There is a little village down the road with a pizzeria and shop, and a large supermarket approx 5km away. Otherwise there didn’t seem to be a huge amount to do within walking distance.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing really - it was slightly inconvenient trying to find swimming trunks, but I guess we should have expected this in France! It would have been good to buy them on-site (also with an on-site shop).

    Great pitch- lots of trees around. The kids loved the pool and slides. Good shower and washing facilities. Stunning surroundings. The owners are very friendly and speak great English which made it so easy for us. Homemade pizzas in the on-site pizza van which we had on one night which made for a great evening! The village has a well-stocked shop close by.

We would probably stay here again if we were travelling through08/07/2022

  • Liked: 

    Price was good; swimming pool clean; on site food reasonable and pitch we had was away from the main noisy area. Some folk were there for 3 weeks

    Disliked: 

    Very crowded in the centre of the site which would have been fine if travelling in a group. We would probably not choose to stay here for long but mainly because we like to be nearer to water and even though the river was a 15-20 min walk away, it made carrying picnic stuff and sup boards that little more challenging.

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.
