Campsites at Lake Annecy

Most campsites are located on the west and south sides of the lake. There's something for all types of campers here. There are small campsites, but also larger ones with extensive facilities. Pitch your tent in a shady area, or stay in a luxurious apartment or mobile home. Wherever you spend the night, there's more than enough to do at or near the campsites on Lake Annecy.

Relax on one of the beautiful beaches, often situated right next to the campsite. The climate is mild. It's lovely to relax on a towel on one of the lawns. Almost everywhere, you'll enjoy a view of the mountain tops around the lake. Campsites that aren't directly on the lake are also worth staying at. A little further from the lake, but still within walking or biking distance, the quiet surroundings are wonderful.

Active holiday makers are also catered for at campsites on Lake Annecy. In the water, you can surf, sail, canoe, or water-ski. Pedal boating is of course fun for all the family. Sports enthusiasts can also enjoy themselves around the lake. Walking, mountain biking, and horseriding are just a few of the many possibilities for staying active in the vicinity. You can often rent sports equipment at the campsite. Those who really enjoy being active can go rafting, canyoning and paragliding in the area. The Haute-Savoie is also the world centre for paragliding.

Excursions in the area

Although the lake offers more than enough possibilities to enjoy yourself, it's also worth looking further afield.

  • Annecy
    The town of Annecy is located on the north side of the lake. From the south side of the lake, it's just a half-hour drive to this beautiful town. Another option is to take a boat to Annecy. The wonderful historic centre is characterised by bridges, balconies with flowers, great shops and good restaurants. Picturesque and romantic!
  • Chamonix
    In this lofty, internationally-oriented mountain town, beautiful vistas, rustic alpine meadows and wild mountain streams come together. Although it's known as a winter sports destination, summer is also a great time to visit this idyllic town.
  • Head across the border: Geneva
    A trip to neighbouring Switzerland is also a possibility. Geneva in particular is easily accessible. Here you'll find lovely museums, beautiful parks and impressive palaces, churches and cathedrals.
