In the heart of the city look up: it is everywhere. 4810 m of rock, ice, snow and wonderful landscapes for everyone.
Chamonix, City of Mountain Lovers.
The town of Chamonix at the foothills of Mont Blanc will be your starting point to conquer this mythical corner. From there, you can take the Mer de Glace train accessible for the whole family or the Aiguille du Midi cable car.
The city is a wonderful tourist attraction. Situated 1h15 from our campsite, people are friendly and there are many beautiful discoveries to be made. You can enjoy the view and moreover it's really a nice city very frequented by many tourists. You can go shopping and relax here. It is because the city is situated in the middle of nature that many people find it interesting when they are on holiday in the area.
To visit Mont Blanc, if you are travelling with your children, it may not be practical to do this kind of hike for safety and endurance reasons. Instead, you can choose to use the cable car or the little train of the sea of ice. This way, the adventure for your children is also total.
The chalets and mobile homes provide comfort for all members of the family and plenty of space to make you feel right at home. We also offer spacious and pleasant tent and caravan pitches. Pitch your tent and discover or rediscover camping life, full of encounters, conviviality and time with your family. We have also thought of people who are dependent on a wheelchair. We are equipped with a chalet for people with reduced mobility so that everyone is entitled to a holiday in the Alps.

Another destination is Lake Annecy, one of the most beautiful mountain lakes in the Alps.
Lake Annecy is well known for its crystal-clear and pure water, which comes directly from a glacier and an underwater spring. The lake has a surface area of approximately 27 square kilometres and a depth of 80 metres. On the approximately 38 kilometres of coastline, you will find many beaches and a large part of the lake is surrounded by bicycle and car-free hiking trails. Although the lake is surrounded by impressive mountains, the cycling and walking routes around the lake are quite flat and therefore easy to do. The water is of course perfect for various activities such as sailing, diving, water-skiing, surfing, kayaking and swimming. The water temperature in summer is about 22 degrees Celsius.
