Parc reviews

Parc highlights

  • Grab those walking boots and hike into the Alps

  • Discover a new water sport less than 1 km from the parc

  • Eurocamp Active - climbing & free guided walks in May, June and September

Annecy is made for getting out and living life to the full - so what’s it to be? Canoeing, kayaking, fishing, water skiing, windsurfing? They’re all easily doable (well, maybe not so easy…) from the small and peaceful La Ravoire Parc.

As bases for discovery go, you couldn’t get more central. From here, the French Alpine countryside opens out in a succession of mountains, lakes, rivers and towns, each more inviting than the last. On parc, the water complex features three pools, keeping you and your little ones happy - and a water slide for extra excitement! There’s a snack bar and takeaway, for easy dining too. Lake Annecy is easily accessible, less than a kilometre away and along its shores you’ll find plenty of water sports to try.

Boasting three heated pools and a twisty slide, there is plenty of water for the whole family to enjoy as well as sun loungers and a sun terrace for a really relaxing day amongst the backdrop of the magnificent mountains. If you want ultimate tranquillity why not head to the sauna just 15km from the parc?

Please note: Parents must supervise children younger than 7 on the twisty slide.

      Climbing

      cs-climbing-header

      There is a multitude of climbing opportunities around Annecy. These limestone mountains offer a wide choice of crags and a spectacular range of routes, all of which are easily accessible from our parcs in the area. Chamonix and Mont Blanc are both just 45 miles from Annecy, offering the most concentrated mountaineering area in the world and a major sports climbing venue. North of Annecy, for serious thrill seekers, is the huge via Ferrata in Thrones, renowned as the most difficult in this climbing region. The awe -inspiring Gorges du Fier is definitely worth a visit, where you walk through a narrow canyon on a footbridge attached to the rock face, as the river rushes directly beneath you.

      Annecy is sandwiched between the Aravis Mountains and the Bauges National Park, on the edge of the beautiful Lake Annecy, which is fed from three glaciers via the rivers of melting snow that pour into the lake every spring. Visiting in May is a must, because from May to early June, the meadows are rich with wild flowers, with no less than 300 species to be found.

      This picturesque area offers you nature in all its glory, with cascades, rivers, mountains, forests, traditional villages and châteaux all waiting to be discovered. Bird lovers also have lots to look out for from May to September, as there are hunting Peregrine and even Golden Eagles to spot. Annecy really is a fantastic base for all walkers and nature-lovers.

      we stayed here on a stop over for three nights, as part of a larger motorcycle tour.
      the couriers were fantastic, and looked after us like their own.
      the camp site was nice, and the owners were very helpful when we had problems.
      our only complaint was that most of the facilities were closed or badly stocked as it was getting close to the end of their season.
