In France, there are several thousand naturally occurring and man-made lakes. Even if not all of them present interesting tourist attractions, their environment is often perfect for holiday resorts and relaxation. Therefore, many campsites have settled on their shores and welcome tourists looking for a place to rest, to swim, to have fun and to practice different water sports activities. In this thematic file, you can discover and appreciate the charm of the most beautiful lakeside campsites.
Located on the shores of a lake as famous as Annecy Lake or on the banks of the most anonymous pond, these jewels of camping and caravanning have the advantage to offer tourists a different environment than the ones they're used to. Nature is very important around these water bodies and as a matter of fact the properties with mobile homes and water parks boast in general lots of trees and greenery.
Although you can often practise water sports here, such as sailing, water-skiing, canoeing or the more playful water biking, the atmosphere around these places is in general calm and invites to rest and relaxation. With a stay on a lakeside campsite, you can enjoy the charm and beauty of these places too!
