    Great site for culture

A small, quiet, extremely well-kept and pretty site

Within easy reach of the A6 motorway, but in the calm of the south Burgundy countryside, Les Ripettes' friendly atmosphere plunges you into deepest rural France! While the smallest pitches are big by any standards and the biggest are truly vast, the very experienced owners, Marc and Isabelle, are keen to maintain the cosy and convivial atmosphere for which it is so loved by members. Great for bird spotters and the Ain region's cycle route is on the doorstep too.

Tranquil country setting where it is easy to relax outside a small, pretty town but within easy reach of the motorway. Simple facilities set amongst farmland off a quiet country lane.

Owned and run by Isabelle and Marc Cappy

This review is for Les Ripettes

Stayed here for two nights on our way home from the south west Med,perfect location to break up the return to Calais. Lovely welcome from Marc the owner who gave us plenty of information on the site and their first class environmental approach to camping. Our pitch was huge,partly shaded and flat with plenty of grass cover.10 amp electric and plenty of water points. Lovely pool with sun beds and parasols,perfect for chilling out.Bakery items to order for 8am delivery. This is a gem of a site just off the autoroute north of Macon,easy to find and easy access.Supermarket and cheap fuel just down the road outside Pont de Vaux. Sanitary facilities excellent,clean and plentiful. Never had a pitch as big as this,you could get four caravans on it! Felt guilty for only staying two nights as this site deserves more custom, several vacant pitches in high season! Just a valid observation - the site is not on mains drainage and uses a septic tank,this requires chemical toilets to use biodegradable chemical(available on site in single or multiple doses). This is in line with the environmental approach from Marc and Isabelle. Brilliant,relaxing and friendly and fully recommended.
