We realy were surprised by the camping site and the environment (Vercors) Camping is located just outside Lalley, 7 minutes from the road between Grenoble - Gap. There isn't any inconvenience of this road so don't expect traffic noise. You have a spectacular panoramic view on the Plateau the Vercors (in the back) and National Parc Les Ecrins. The camping is managed by the family Durand (Patrick and Nathalie) Nathalie understands and speaks English reasonable. They will do everything to make your stay comfortable. I think that most of the guests are Dutch (70%) complete by French, Belgium and ohter nationalities. A lot of kids between 3-14 years old. We hired a mobile home and those are very well equiped (oven, microwave and tv with dvd player in case of bad weather!) The weather can be very warm, despite the location (800 meter). The only thing we missed was a veranda (for shadow) and a laying bed or good chairs outside the mobile home. The current picnic table with umbrella was only sufficient for eating outside but not very comfortable. We build up a "tarp" for having some shadow. However there are some sites on the camping with enough shadow. There is free wifi (30 minutes a day) available or you can buy wifi access for a whole week. But having full time wifi during holiday isn't our priority! The restrooms near the swimming pool was very clear, even with disfect dispencers. For other travellers there are central refrigerators, deepfreezers etc, so very well equiped. You can have some simple breakfast, lunch and dinners in the restraurant. And yes we recommend this. Take away is also possible and will be standard delivered at your site!! (very nice service) The camping can provide some (realy nice!) hiking maps starting at the camping site. Climbing "Le Jocou" and other mountains (near the camping) is recommend.
Other recommendations; lac du monteynard with the himalaya bridges (40 minutes), La Salette-Fallavaux (75 minutes), Parc aventure near Mont Aguille (40 minutes), Canoeing on the Drome (80 minutes), Gress en Vercorss, Le Jarjette, Village Mens (20 minutes, supermarket and gas station) etc, etc. Thank you Family Durand for taking care and this nice experience. Probably we will come back one time :-)
