INTRODUCING VAL DE BONNAL

The spacious grounds of this former water mill link up with a series of fun-for-all lakes in one of France's most green and pleasant regions. Aquatic adventures will be divided between the water park with water slides and the swimming lake and beach. Canoeing is another popular pursuit whilst on dry land cycling and hiking enthusiasts will find a multitude of trails. A premium Castels site for some time, Bonnal proudly evokes the charm and individuality of this tranquil backwater which serves as a great gateway to Switzerland and Italy.

Really loved the fact that we had access to a lake and the river, free access to a kayak and canoe was a bonus, staff all really helpful and friendly, cleanliness of site was impressive too. Well organised snack bar service and food pretty decent.

Only negative would be The Forge site restaurant, terrible service, waited over half an hour for them to take a drink and food order, only when we complained twice did they come over to us, this was after they served 3 tables that arrived after us, then waited another half an hour for the children's meals to arrive (a salad and 2 x bolognaise) the children had completed thier meal and left the restaurant before the 2 adult meals of steak and chips arrived cold! The building and location seemed an ideal choice to treat yourself to a meal on the last night of a wonderful holiday, unfortunately this was not to be, food poor quality and overpriced as well as poor hygiene, glasses were dirty and toilets terrible.

The site was beautiful and was quiet by 10 every night and early in the morning.
The canoeing on the lake included was great fun too
The only negative was they ran out of water in the shop but sold delicious bread and croissants so made up for it! I would come back. Lovely thanks Linda (who was great).

Absolutely lovely park. Very hard to fault. Park staff were friendly and helpful. Pointless paying for the WiFi connection as it basically doesn’t work Managed to connect for about 3 mins but staff refunded money. Only concern was the Alfresco rep who knew very little about local area, was quite derogatory about the French and was verging on racist when commenting about the many German holiday makers who use the site through Alfresco.

Overall we thought that Val de Bonnal is a great site. However whilst the on site staff proved to be very helpful during a crisis following our 7 year olds fall from her bike, they equally let themselves down during the last week of our stay. Snack bar opening times were reduced in our last week as the site was winding down from the season. In my opinion our stay coincided with the peak season so I was astounded to see that the site was closing down and we had no prior knowledge through Al Fresco that this would be the case. We were told the site closed on 5th September, not the week before.
