Bijou du Doubs - Campsite - Holidays & weekends in Lays-sur-le-Doubs

3, route du Pont - Lays-sur-le-Doubs

Our campsite Bijou du Doubs is located in Lays-sur-le-Doubs in the Bresse Bourguignonne, one of the most beautiful areas of the Bourgogne Franche-Comté region, in the heart of a nature reserve (Zone Natura 2000). It is in a fantastic location directly on the river Doubs with fifty large (80-140m²) and mainly shaded pitches and eight rental accommodations. Find more on bijoududoubs. Com.

Our campsite is open from mid-April to the end of September – a paradise especially for anglers and birdwatchers, but also for families and anyone looking for peace and quiet. A 6x13 m swimming pool also awaits you on the site – with free entry, of course. And you find here a restaurant where the chef is personally at the stove and prepares much more than classic campsite dishes.

And the Doubs offers a wide range of activities right on the doorstep: splashing around on the banks, fishing either from the shore or a boat, bird-watching, canoeing, … And in the nearby surroundings, there are many worthwhile excursion destinations, from castles to Burgundy wineries.

Our site is strategically located for all those who want to spend their holidays on the Mediterranean Sea or the Atlantic Ocean. We are situated between Dole and Chalon-sur-Saône, about 19 km from the A36 motorway. This makes our “jewel” the perfect place to stay on your way to the sea or ocean. But be careful, once you get here you just might stay for two or three nights …
