The "it" factor

What makes it special:

What needs to be considered:

  • It is a campsite, don't expect over-the-top luxury

  • Out of season the activities offering is limited

The fun factor

Huttopia is located in the beautiful Ballons des Vosges Regional Park. Just being on the camp site is enjoyable and refreshing. We liked the closeness to nature and the walks (or balance bike rides) around the area. The campsite is very varied with different types of huts available so you can explore and do some "hut spotting"!

There are three pools - two outdoor (including one which is more of a splash pool for kids) and one indoor (heated), overseeing the forest. They all looked like a lot of fun! With so much to do around the area, we didn't have a chance to try them out - hopefully next time!

Our 3.5 year-old especially enjoyed the playground and its climbing area, slide, balancing swings and of course as expected from a Huttopia - a small play hut. There is also a small minigolf course, a table tennis table, a padel tennis court (a mix between tennis and squash) and a pétanque field - all can be used free of charge. There is definitely enough to do with kids around the campsite if you prefer to take some easy days and stay put.

If the weather is not great, there is also a large lounge with a TV, fireplace, comfy couches, foosball table and a shelf with games. There is also some sport equipment you can use for the outdoor activities.

We particularly appreciated to find in our hut upon arrival a "My nature activity booklet" It is a sleek magazine with different games and activities kids can do anywhere with minimum equipment needed.

During the summer holiday period you can also pick up from reception an activity basket for kids. Unfortunately in September it was no longer available so we are curious to discover next time what it actually is.

Pony rides around the campsite and other organized activities for kids are limited to the holiday season as well - another reason to come back!

You can rent bikes (normal or electric, including a baby seat) and explore the beautiful 3'000 km2 of The Ballons des Vosges Regional Park.

The comfort factor

Huttopia is divided into two sections: one for campers in tents, and the other one for glampers (glamours campers) in different huts (which is where we stayed). The huts have different levels of comforts: tent houses with beds, mobile homes, caravans and bungalows with all the amenities. We stayed in a Cahutte - a hut with a wooden living space, kitchen and bathroom area on the ground floor and a tent space on the first floor with the sleeping area. This was very fun for our 3.5 year-old as she could experience a camping adventure, and very comfortable for us, as we had easy access to all the amenities. Just note that there is a steep ladder to get to the top floor of the Cahutte, albeit with a baby gate. If you are traveling with very small kids - consider booking a different hut to spare yourself the stress.

All huts have a terrace. Ours was very private with a nice view on the forest. We especially loved having breakfasts there, surrounded by nature. Inside, the space is rustic but clean and with everything you need - pots, pans, stove, fridge, shower, toilet etc. Just note that it is a campsite and you are staying in nature - don't expect high luxury :).

The food factor

There is a restaurant and a very small shop on site. From June to September you can order breakfast rolls or pastries to have at your hut (they have a great choice!) or have a simple breakfast at the restaurant (it's only bread, pastries, butter and jam - the French way). Throughout the day they serve pizzas and meat, cheese or vegetable platters, which we enjoyed very much. If you are traveling in October, you might need to organise your food yourself (check ahead of time what will be available). All huts have decently equipped kitchen and there are shops within short driving range to stock your shelves.

The value factor

In 2023 the out-of-season price per night for a hut with a bathroom ranged from 57 CHF to 90 CHF. Cleaning, bedding and food is extra and the minimum stay is 2 nights. We found it to be very good value for a family holiday on a budget. Keep in mind that the huts offer all the essentials but no additional luxury. If you are looking for a camping-like experience in nature with good amenities (private bathroom, kitchen etc) - this is a place for you. We came with this mindset and were very happy with our stay.

The adventure factor

There is plenty to do with your family in the area. Just next to the campsite is a Loc Trott park with electric scooters (from 12 years), mini motocross and quads (from 5 years) and pony rides (from 3 years). A short drive away is The Little Prince themed amusement park as well as the biggest outdoor museum in France, set up as an old-timey Alsatian village, both with great activities for kids. Around 30-40 minutes drive away you can find beautiful Alsatian villages and towns such as Colmar, Eguisheim or Kaysersberg. We really enjoyed renting electric bikes and cycling through beautiful towns and vineyards. It's also a great opportunity to discover and buy some amazing white wines.
