Camping holidays in the French Alps are perfect for those looking for something a little different from the usual beach-side camping holiday. Eurocamp's campsites in the French Alps are concentrated around the shores of beautiful Lake Annecy. This Lake is at the gateway to the Northern Alps, and easy to reach by car from the UK, with

 the A41 Autoroute putting Annecy less than an hour's drive from Geneva and not much more from Lyon. Indeed, it's possible to reach Annecy from Calais in about 7 hours' driving. Lake Annecy is a great holiday destination, offering watersports on the lake, cruises, a cycle and walking path around the shore, plus all the activities associated with being in the mountains. The town of Annecy enjoys a very attractive lakeside setting and fantastic views of the mountains on the opposite shore. There are plenty of bars and restaurants along the flower-bedecked banks of the little river that flows into the lake, and an excellent food market once weekly.

Eurocamp campsites in the French Alps:

Apartments in Chamonix.
La Serraz Campsite.

Eurocamp also has a campsite,  La Belledonne Campsite, close to Bourg d'Oisans, situated at a height of just over 2000 metres on the Western edge of the Alps, accessible from Grenoble, which is about 50 km away, via the A51 and RN91. The clean mountain air and the beauty of the surroundings makes this a great mountain-based holiday, with many km of walking, mountain biking and riding tracks.
