The site at Fayolan is lovely surrounded by forest on one side, which you can trek or cycle through! On the other side is the grand lac where you can swim, hire boats or just rest beside. And the site is close by to the town of Clairvaux les Lacs where there are some excellent bakeries, restaurants and a few supermarkets.
We stayed with Venue Holidays (one of 5/6 operators on the site), our second trip to this site with them. Once again we were very impressed with the welcoming venue staff who were very helpful and friendly. The accommodation is basic, as expected, but there is everything we required in the 3 bed mobile home, and there is a lovely decking area to enjoy meals in the sun or a BBQ.
The facilities are very good, excellent pool; indoor and outdoor, plus slides! Nice bar serving local beers. Well stocked shop, large play area for children, bike and kayak hire at VERY reasonable prices! I wouldn't recommend the snack bar, the quality of the pizza and fries was very poor indeed!! There are also kids clubs, evening entertainment during the high season and a disco.
Locally there are the Herrison waterfalls to visit, another small falls at La Fresnee. Lac Vouglans is a large lake south of the site and is well worth a view!! Or if you're feeling a little more adventurous, pop over the border to Switzerland and BBQ next to lac de joux or visit the city of Geneva.
All in all we had a fantastic trip, it's well worth the 400+ mile drive, to see the mountains and lakes in this beautiful French region!
