In the heart of the Savoie mountains, the campsite is ideally situated for exploring the many walking and hiking trails, as well as practising a variety of outdoor sports. Between caves and lakes, a multitude of reliefs make up the sublime panoramas you can admire. Make the most of the numerous visits, in an exceptional, unspoilt setting.
Emblematic of the Savoie region, this postcard-perfect lake is real! Bordering the campsite, you can get there without even taking the car. Its emerald-coloured water is a real paradise for the flora and fauna that live there. A variety of activities are permitted: you can observe the scenery from your own boat (kayak, canoe, paddle, pirogue, etc.), which you can hire from one of the many service providers, or swim in the water, which can reach 28 degrees in summer. Relax on the beach at Lépin-le-Lac. Classified as a “Nature Reserve” and therefore preserved, combustion engines are prohibited. Take to the skies and enjoy a breathtaking paragliding experience (Montagne de l’Epine).
