Camping Les Fontaines Campsite

Annecy, The Alps
Site code: AL011

Why you'll love this parc

  • Try out the new 50m long Kamikaze waterslide
  • Surrounded by stunning scenery at the edge of Lake Annecy
  • Perfect for cycling, climbing and walking

Set against a backdrop of the stunning French alps, this rustic parc offers a warm welcome near Lake Annecy

Rushing waterfalls, labyrinthine caves and soaring mountains, when you got the French Alps as a backdrop you really don’t have to try too hard to impress. But that hasn’t stopped Les Fontaines from extending one of the warmest welcomes in Annecy.

When you’ve finished exploring the mysterious Cascade de Seythenex cave system, and the St Ruph waterfall, you can rest assured that a rustic, relaxed parc is waiting for you. Beautifully situated just a few minutes from Lake Annecy, Les Fontaines is a steeply terraced parc in idyllic surroundings. And while it might be small, you are sure to make a mighty splash in the pools! Little ones will love their own paddling pool, while older kids and adults can try out the big Kamikaze waterslide, and when you're ready for a break, just lie back on the sun terrace and soak in those amazing views.

Walking

Walking and hiking

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.

Cycling

Road cycling

The combination of peaceful countryside, lakeside paths and mountain ascents make Annecy the perfect cycling destination – that’s why it was chosen for the mountain finale of the 100th Tour de France. Annecy itself is very cycle-friendly, with the Lake Annecy greenway considered the most beautiful cycleway in France. All the greenways, countryside routes and cycle routes combined amount to nearly 110 available routes for cycling fanatics!

Local Area Climbing

Climbing

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.
