    The establishment

    L’Escale is a great site for a winter break with everything on the doorstep for skiing. Shower blocks clean and warm! Perfect location. Shuttle bus to the slopes, boot, ski & drying room are good. It wasn’t too busy when we were there so plenty of space between us and our neighbours however during busy periods it a little too crammed in! However this won’t stop us using the site in the future and we will back!

    No

    Accommodation review

    Pitch was fine.

    How near you are to neighbours in busy periods during winter season. However this wouldn’t stop us returning.

    Had a great stay at L’Escale for a ski trip. We were given a lovely spacious pitch which caught the sun. Toilet blocks were cleaned regularly and were warm. Lovely pool and games room. The ski rooms and drying room were really useful. Location in relation to the town and ski buses works really well. We are likely to return again possibly in the summer as well!

    Great resort and the camping site was perfectly placed next to the resort. Free bus services and great location.

    My Pitch was very muddy and we had to wait for a pallet to become available to use as a platform for accessing my van.

    Accommodation review

    Toilets and showers were excellent, lovely warm and clean. Bar and restaurant was very good, nice takeaways as well.

    My pitch was not very good for winter camping.

    Accommodation : Wintercamping pitch

    Period of stay : From 11/02/2024 to 16/02/2024

    The establishment

    The site is peaceful and well maintained, with ample facilities for motorhome use including EHU, shower/toilet block, grey waste and black waste disposal. Pastries and fresh bread were available each morning if preordered the evening before. The ski room and boot room had plenty of availability. The bus stop for the free skibus to the tele cabins was located right outside the campsite. The restaurant on site also provides takeaway pizzas which were very nice.

    The only minor issues we noticed were that some pitches were slightly waterlogged, and didn't appear to dry out for the duration of our stay. There was no rain during our stay so the drainage on some pitches could need some maintenance. There were no recycling or general waste bins on the site. Communal bins were located just outside the camp on the opposite side of the roundabout. It was only a short walk through.

    Accommodation review

    We were in our own motorhome, but provided with a reasonably level pitch with 10amp EHU and access to a water tap reasonably close to the pitch. During the warmer months water is available on each pitch, but for obvious reasons these are turned off in winter. We did need to use one ramp to level our outfit, but nothing unexpected.

    As mentioned, some of the pitches remained waterlogged for some days. Fortunately this didn't affect our pitch.

    Lovely site with friendly staff. Great location, short walk to town (uphill for people with mobility difficulties). Ski bus stops right outside the site and it’s less than 5 minutes to the lifts. It says the bus is every 20 minutes but we never waited more than 5. Bus station is 5 minutes walk from the site with buses to La Crusaz and other places.

    Level and clean. Close to the amenities.

    La vue, jusqu'à ce qu'un énorme camping car soit collé par le personnel beaucoup trop près de nous.

    Etre parqué avec moins d'1m entre chaque véhicule, comme sur une vulgaire aire d'autoroute alors que l'endroit est à motié vide. Les bruits des camping-caristes voisins ont gâché notre séjour.

    Nice open site in a beautiful area. Village unspoiled with too many new property developments unlike many other resorts. Village has kept its traditional French feel

    A camper van that pitched up very close to us. Camping cars all ‘squashed’ into one area of the site. Outside swimming pool looked very green with algae.

    The shower block on the terrace was clean and had plenty of hot water.

    Toilet paper, hand wash and hand towels not replenished/checked daily. Often, one toilet without paper. The water tap was a LONG way from the terrace pitches to refill. A tap up there would be useful. A light is needed in the toilet drop cupboard too .

    Beautiful campsite, beautiful surroundings. The restaurant on-site is the nicest campsite restaurant we’ve ever experienced and very professional staff, also in reception too. Shower blocks seem new and are very clean. People were also very polite and mopped their showers after use.

    Too many vans were crammed in, giving a feeling of not enough private space. This was also apparent in the showers that there were too many people on-site and not enough facilities to accommodate. We queued most evenings for a shower between 5 - 10 minutes.

    the site needs a good tidy up..small enhancements, small beautification projects, put some money back into making it one of the most outstanding campsite I the Alps..The site is really letting down the good people of Le Gran Bornard.....give them something special to be proud of. Have a meeting for ideas. some low cost projects could really enhance the site. Get out of reception everyday.Walk round .Chat to the comparers...Ask for ideas as to how to improve site. How to make the stay more beautiful and special....it doesn't take too much effort.

    Stayed in the summer a few years ago and really wanted to return in the skiing season. Love the site location and quality of the facilities. Special mention to the staff and in particular Catherine who was really helpful in finding a garage for me for a wing mirror replacement. She called the garage and explained my problem and set up an appointment. Over and above service.

    Only slightest complaint was the soap dispenser in one of the toilet blocks was empty most of the week. Overall everything else was excellent.

    The establishment

    Le bus au pas du camping L’emplacement par rapport au village La piscine même si elle nécessiterait une rénovation globale Nous reviendrons au Grand Bornand

    Le prix exorbitant par rapport aux autres campings déjà fait (également en station et en haute saison (ex : 7j : 370€ à l’escale contre 224€ à la Plagne) La promiscuité avec les autres voyageurs : le camping ressemble plus à une aire de camping-car qu’à un réel camping. Nous n’avons pas trouvé l’esprit familial attendu, mais plutôt un esprit orienté « rentabilité » à tout prix. (Ex : restés 5h de plus nous a été facturé 25€) Donc rapport qualité prix : très décevant. Nous sommes restés car le total du séjour était réglé sinon nous serions partis. Nous ne reviendrons pas dans ce campi

    Accommodation review

    La possibilité de commander le pain et les viennoiseries à l’accueil pour le lendemain matin.

    - Absence de délimitation entre les emplacements - Emplacements minuscules - Emplacements non nivellés nécessitant cales (impossible à mettre en cas de pluie car terrain boueux) - Proximité de la route
