Local to campsite

Tourist info, internet, and ticket office. A few good bars and Pizzeria, to give you a change of scene, from the van, Spar shop, Cinema and a few novelty shops and a few ski shops. Ice Rink and small heath spa available.

Further a Field

Bourg St Maurice is 15 minutes away, with everything you need cheap food from Super U.


This is a great location for Ski or Snowboarding with a true Alpine feel, and the Paradiski area on your van step. The campsite is rated at 2* but I would say it is easy 3*. Autogas (LPG) at the pumps, always worth stocking up before heading up to the campsite.


  • It may be a bit tight for the very largest motor homes.
  • You may need an extra extension lead for electric hook up.
  • Brush up on your French as this is not that touristy.


On the N90 between Bourg St Maurice and Moutiers turn off onto the D225 and then the D87 Following directions to Montchavin
