Conviviality in northeast France
Camping Les Bouleaux is a friendly campsite in northeast France, run by the Dutch couple Remco and Sandy Tukker. This convivial campsite is especially popular with families who have young children. They can enjoy swimming, playing table tennis or minigolf, or order something tasty at the terrace café. Les Bouleaux is a campsite in the middle of the countryside where children can quickly make friends from several countries!
Popular with young families
There is a green oasis a few hours’ drive from the Channel ports: the Vosges du Nord regional nature reserve. The town of Vilsberg, home to the genial Camping Les Bouleaux, is located here in northeast France. Families with young children love to come here for a relaxing holiday in the beautiful natural surroundings. Entertainment here is modest but fun. There is a small playground, you can join in sports and there is a small swimming pool. There are also many picturesque villages in the vicinity.
Nice and cool
With its two heated swimming pools, everyone is catered for. The toddlers’ pool is there for the youngest guests, while the others can plunge into the larger pool. There are colourful chairs and deckchairs next to the pool, so mum and dad can relax with a book or a magazine while at the same time keeping an eye on everyone. There are also opportunities for excitement or relaxation out of the water. Children can get rid of their energy in the playground, complete with a seesaw, trampoline, swing and climbing frame. And who doesn’t enjoy an exciting round of minigolf, table tennis or jeu de boules?
You can buy fresh bread at the campsite reception each morning. The village of Phalsbourg, just five minutes by car, is fine for the rest of your shopping, and there are several supermarkets, shops and restaurants. But you don’t need to leave the campsite for a tasty meal; there is a small restaurant with a snack menu. You can also enjoy a drink or an ice cream on the terrace café. There are regular musical performances in the evenings and films are shown on a large screen.
You can go camping at Camping Les Bouleaux but there are also several types of rental accommodation. The safari tents (suitable for six people) offer you a real glamping experience. They come complete with a kitchen on wheels with a four ring gas stove, fridge and coffee maker. And the awning and lounge furniture ensure that you can sit or lie comfortably in the shade in front of your tent. The Coco-Sweet tents are less luxurious but still very comfortable. There is space here for two adults and two children. And finally, there are two fully equipped mobile homes.
Boat lift and steam trains
Europe’s biggest boat lift is about fifteen minutes’ drive from the campsite. Watch as boats complete the 45 metre difference in height to avoid a number of locks. Truly amazing. A trip in the steam train at Abreschviller makes a fun day out for the children. The track is about 12 kilometres long and ends in a sawmill.
