BONLIEU Camping de l’Abbaye

Burgundy, Jura and Franche Comte4.3

Selected as this is an unsophisticated little site in a very quiet rural location just 600m from Lake Bonlieu but with the added bonus of a lovely restaurant by the entrance which is open all year. Although there is no swimming pool, it is a great centre for hiking. An abundance of flowers create a warm welcome and it is a site particularly suited to couples.
