“Fayolan with VENUE Holidays”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

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!

We stayed in a static caravan with Venue holidays. The site had plenty of activities to keep my kids entertained with a kids club, adventure playground, great swimming pools with slides and of course the lake. We hired canoes which were really cheap and spent ages swimming in the lake. Our caravan was sited up the hill which at first I was a bit annoyed at as it seemed out of the way but to be honest it was a busy site so when relaxing at the caravan, we were able to do just that. All the staff were friendly and the site was really clean. Lovely site in a beautiful area!

We camped with Venue Holidays in the "forest area". This was reasonably quiet and a relatively short walk to both the pool and the lake. The pool with its slides is great for everyone although it really needs more sunbeds and access to the grass behind it which looked recently closed off. Also be aware that French law says men/boys must wear trunks and not swimming shorts that the youngsters prefer. The lake is also a great bonus as you can use your own inflatable boats as well as hire pedalos or jump off the towers. The restaurant on site is ok but they should develop this more and the take away is good. There are not many restaurants in a 15 minutes drive but the town is easily walkable and has at least two good and reasonably priced restaurants. We enjoyed the Trout restaurant nearby in a beautiful out of the way location but beware if you have sensitive children with you as the trout are killed to order next to the river and the children are encouraged to fish them out for this to happen! The camp site has entertainment most nights in high season but we've been to many camp sites in France and have seen much better entertainment. Toilets and showers are good and kept clean regularly and discretely without needing to be closed. There is also a useful little shop on site but as you would expect it isn't cheap. There are two supermarkets within a few minutes drive. Would be happy to return to this camp site.

Really enloyed our stay here. Friendly and helpful reception set the tone. Medium size pitch with 240v - a bit sloped but we were in a caravan so was ok for us. Great location by small pretty lake. Diving boards, pedalos and kayaks for hire nearby. Used restaurant and takeaway once - food was above average and reasonably priced. Not the quietest site but not that bad. really good pool complex - pools were a good temperature clean. Plenty of nearby attractions- we did canyoning and via ferrata- both great fun but not for the faint hearted. superb play area.didnt go to entertainment and hardly used kids club so not sure about them. Staff were always working hard to keep the site clean and tidy. One of the nicest sites weve stayed on.

Room Tip: try and get a lake front pitch - longer walk to block and facilities but nicer.

We booked this all a bit last minute but it turned out way better than expected. We have been to 6 campsites in France and this was the best so far. We had a static up at the back of the camp about a 4 min walk to the centre. It is a very quiet camp and while we were up the hill at the back it was still quiet. The main countries were French and Dutch but our 2 boys made friends quickly and played table tennis at every opportunity. The pools are clean and the slides kept them happy. The beach takes a good number of people away from the pools so it never felt busy. In fact we both commented on how pleasant everything was and how peaceful the place was. The lake is great fun and not at all cold. Canoe hire was €3 and really good fun; we paddled down the lake to the high dive board and grassy ‘beach’ area. You may need to book the canoes in the afternoon, but the mornings were no issue. There are also pedaloes that were fun as all 4 of us could go out and mess around together. The area is very pretty but as we were only there for a week we stayed on site most of the time. The camp shop and restaurant were perfectly ok and perhaps cheaper than coastal campsites. Great site, well laid out and a very nice place to spend a week.

Room Tip: Quite at the back up the hill. Lake locations available but you will no doubt have to book them.

This was our first visit to Fayolan. The campsite itself is very nice with plenty of room per pitch. We had a small extra tent at no extra charge. The main problems on the pitch were a lack of shade and very hard ground, putting pegs in was a struggle. Also we were near the toilet block which we had asked for which was generally clean and looked after but did tend to be quite noisy until midnight, so if you like an early night you may need earplugs.
The pools were fantastic, great for the whole family, and plenty warm enough given we were there in a heatwave. The area is clearly prone to storms so a well proofed tent is essential. The pools were well regulated and monitored. The lake was stunning, we went down to the public beach a few times as it was more spacious with more facilities and the diving boards. we took our own kayaks and did a round trip of the lake which was good. If we did return, we would probably choose a cottage to stay in as the receptionist Lea (who was brilliant, thank you) showed us round a few, they were really good if you can get the right price.
Overall we had a good time, the only thing I did expect to be a bit better was evening entertainment for the family, e.g. one night was a video of a U2 concert! Fine for adults but not really the children. The park was great, though more table tennis tables needed. Camp shop as expected very expensive - there is an Atac and Aldi in town which we used for groceries.
Any more info feel free to email.

We loved our holiday at le fayolan, but we had a big problem with noise and the slope on our pitch. We were next to the toilet and shower block and the noise was terrible up until midnight and then occasionally after you would get inconsiderate people or teenagers talking outside. The area is great with the lake itself fantastic. The kids club had a very nice animation team(with especial thanks to Ellis) but the activities were a little basic. The pool was freezing and not the heated 25 degrees on the website but this was great a it was 36 degrees most days. The shop is fine but is overpriced as standard for a campsite, if you could go into clairvaux then the shops were cheaper and it was under 5 mins in a bike. Variety of food on the site itself was poor. The restaurant and takeaway were very limited and a little pricey. Still a great holiday in a lovely area.
