Camping L'Ideal, French Alps

Camping L Ideal with Canvas Holidays

The 4*Camping l’Ideal opens in late April until late September and this campsite is just 800 metres from Lake Annecy and the beach there.

As the name suggests, this campsite is ideal for exploring Lake Annecy and its surrounding area, in fact there are gorgeous views from the campsite over the mountains. This area is fantastic for those seeking an active holiday with plenty of outdoor activities to keep everyone entertained. If you’re looking for the ultimate thrill you may want to try paragliding in nearby Talloires.

Lake Annecy has become the one of the best places in the world for flying sports, but if you prefer to keep your feet on the ground, there are still lots of things to do. The area is popular for hikers and there are many trails just a short walk from the campsite. 

Camping L Ideal pool complexThe campsite itself has plenty to keep everyone entertained with a fantastic pool complex and a wide range of activities to try. Just a short stroll away at Lake Annecy, there are plenty of water sports to enjoy from a sedate pedalo ride to the livelier water-skiing. During high season, in the evenings you can enjoy the onsite entertainment.

Please note that some facilities and activities are only available during high season. Please check at the time of booking if there is an activity or facility which is crucial for your holiday.

Local area

The campsite sits in a stunning location at the foot of the French Alps, just moments from the sparkling waters of Lake Annecy.

The local area is waiting to be explored! The pretty town of Annecy is a 25 minute drive away and it’s worth spending some time having a wander round and enjoying a visit to a patisserie or two! There is a cycle path that goes right around the lake which is just 600m from the campsite – it’s a fantastic way to spend a leisurely day taking in the stunning mountain views. The nearby town of Chamonix, nestled in the Alps is perfect if you fancy a day getting back to nature. From here you can visit Mont Blanc and the surrounding glaciers.
