A walker’s paradise, a swimmer’s delight

How do you fancy direct access to a natural lake and being surrounded by the wooded foothills of the Jura? That’s what a holiday at Domaine de Chalain has in store.

Set in the grounds of an old château, this parc features a fantastic pool complex with waterslides, a kids’ pool, Jacuzzi and heated indoor pool. There’s a wide range of sporting activities, though some may not be available until July, when the parc can be quite lively. Stay here and you’ll be entitled to free access to the pool according to a credit system for entry (we’ll tell you more about this when you book). The adjoining lakeside beach is a great place to soak up the sun, but you can also fish, swim, or hire a pedalo or canoe.

Beautiful park in a lovely area.
It was the last week of the season so some of the parks features were unavailable - not that that mattered too much because it was the surrounding area we wanted to explore.
The couriers were friendly and helpful and although sometimes not instantly available they did always get back to us fairly promptly.
The accomodation was quite old and and beginning to show it but was comfortable and clean.
I would recommend the site and Eurocamp to anyone.

This is a lovely, well kept campsite in a beautiful location which exceeded our expectations. Direct access to a beautiful beach was the highlight, with gorgeous sunsets every night.
However, we went in the last week of the season and the shop was poorly stocked and take away options were limited. Such a shame, kind of spoiled it a bit.
We have been on many Eurocamp holidays and been very happy, but this time our holiday home was dirty, tatty, and the button on the oven was broken leading to rather dangerous self lighting methods. I was disappointed and the couriers weren’t great. Again, perhaps because it was the last week of the season but felt we should’ve had better. Such a shame.

A lovely park in a fantastic setting. If you like outdoor activities you will not be disappointed. The campsite itself is well set out and amenities are all fairly close together (e.g.. shops, restaurant, pool etc).
A few little things however - the pool complex is also a municipal feature and open to the general public. It therefore gets very busy in peak times when the weather is nice. It also has a policy of no swim shorts (men) - only speedos. Additionally, if you are a campsite guest, you are issued with a credit card "charged" with credits for the pool entrance. One credit per person per day, thus 28 credits for a family of four for 7 days. This means you can only go in/out once per day per person if you want to access the pool every day. Once the credits are used you can of course purchase more. This tbh is a total nuisance if you have kids who may want to swim in the morning, do something else in the day and then go back in the afternoon or evening - it is not open access!!
We found the Eurocamp reps very lackadaisical and laissez-faire - they didn't seem to have their finger on the pulse of what was going on nor of the range of local attractions - be prepared to find things out for yourself!
Lastly, the eurocamps mobile homes were dated in comparison to other properties on the site and had relatively small plots.

Despite these small issues, we (2 adults and 2 children aged 10 & 8) had a great week and we can definitely recommend the Domaine de Chalain. The village of Doucier has some superb little restaurants, a local fruitiere, and the wider area has some fantastic waterfalls and lakes.
