The history of the campsite

A professional retraining has little to do with anything.

Looking for a campsite to take over, I surfed on the net and discovered this municipal campsite in St Maurice de Gourdans, in the department of Ain, 1h15 from my Savoie, 35 minutes from Lyon and 1h20 from Geneva.

The visit of the site made me discover an exceptional setting with an incredible view on the river Ain.

It was love at first sight.

I took my sports bag, bought a caravan, left my family in Chambéry and started this beautiful adventure.

In 3 years and with the unfailing support of my friends and local craftsmen, I transformed this 4-hectare site into a 3-star campsite with 40 mobile homes, 2 swimming pools, a restaurant and entertainment…

Nice place to relax

Small campsite that has cottage type camper rentals too. Very basic amenities but spotlessly clean. Separate showers for men and women, bathrooms are all co ed, which is pretty typical for continental Europe. Pool which we never used as the river is right next to the campsite. Easy access to river and rocky beach. Fairly fast flowing. Nearby village has a patisserie, small grocery store and cafe/bar. Not a huge tourist area, English speakers limited and traditional French store openings apply. Stores closed 1200-1400, restaurants open 1200-1400 and then at 1900. Big grocery store in nearby Miramieux.

Very nice place!! Pleasant stay!

An excellent place to stay for a few days and have a rest on a very peaceful atmosphere, the river is beautiful and you can swim on it, bungallows are brand new and there are a lots of trees.
Lot of pace, children may run there bicycle, swimming pool and nature all around.
I loved the pizzas at the restaurant and there a lots of things to do in the area (canoe, nice villages to visit).


Motorcycle Two Nite Stopover for Euros in Lyon

Lovely site beside the river, very friendly/helpful staff at reception. Small restaurant and bar serving great local dishes, recommend the Plat de Jour 3 course option – Yummy ! Has kids and adult pools, laundry facilities. Was to stay in a small chalet but was upgraded to a full size mobile home because it was closer to our friends who were staying in a motorhome. The site is a little way out of the village but only half an hour by country back roads, 15 miles, from the Stade Lyonnaise football stadium, so you don’t get stuck in the traffic jams leaving the ground ! The site is only rated as a 2 star but it won’t be for long as it seems to be very much up and coming. A little peach indeed !

Really nice stay

A small camping where you can really take a few days off to relax. Lyon is pretty near, and there are enough supermarkets around this place. Think it’s really usefull to have a car though.
