Camping and mobile home holidays in the French Alps, central southern France
The French Alps or Rhone Alps are a magnificent range of mountains in southern central France, and which adjoin Switzerland and the Swiss Alps as well as the Italian Alps a little further south. The Alps span other countries as well as France, Italy and Switzerland though: Monaco, Liechtenstein, Austria, Germany and Slovenia.
Campsites we feature in the French Alps
The 4* les Rives de Condrieu in the Rhone Alpes takes you back to nature with unbelievable scenery, cycle and walking trails.
The 5* la Ferme de Serraz is a small & friendly campsite close to Lake Annecy & is surrounded by mountain greenery.
The 4* Camping la Ravoire at Annecy offers a choice between water sports (white water rafting), walking or scuba diving in the lake.
The 4* Camping L'Ideal is 800 metres from the banks of Lake Annecy & has a superb pool complex + horse riding, paragliding & water sports nearby as well as a full range of onsite facilities.
The 4* Camping les Fontaines campsite is close to cave networks, waterfalls and mountains. Exploring the Cascade de Seythenex cave system is a must!
The 3* Camping Saint Disdille is set on the banks of Lake Geneva & has a full range of facilities inc. water sports, day + evening entertainment, thermal baths etc.
The 4* la Belledonne campsite at Bourg d'Oisans in the Alps is set on the edge of the National Park & is great for walking, cycling, water sports etc.
The 4* Camping le Lac Bleu is set on the banks of Lake Annecy with it's own private beach. There are excellent walking & cycling paths here + lots of both on & offsite facilities.
Lake Annecy is the 2nd largest lake in the whole of France, a spectacular place which is ideal for watersports, walking, cycling and exploring the mountains.
The Alps are a delight for walkers and climbers and for holidays around the lake shores, all of which has made them popular with the energetic people who want to combine their activities with camping holidays.
The French Alps boast 24 peaks over 4,000 metres of altitude. The highest point is located in the Mont Blanc, France, with 4,810 metres. Of course, all this is winter skiing country but in summer time is given over to camping and mobile home holidays
The French Alps region is supposed to be the third most visited part of France, but that is because it receives so many skiers in the winter season. The season we are interested in is the summer when holidaymakers go there for walking and cycling, enjoying the mountains, the gorges and the scenery in general while they have a camping holiday base to return to at the end of the day.
We have a couple more pages devoted to camping holidays in the French Alps but these are devoted to camping resorts rather than being a general overview as this one is.
