Camping Les Genêts, located in the Midi-Pyrénées in the South of France, is a valhalla for swimmers. There's a water park on the campsite. The largest recreation lake in the South of France (Lac de Pareloup) is also right on the doorstep. A large playground, multi-sports field, recreation area, disco and entertainment team make this holiday paradise complete.

Wooded terrain

On the green property there are many tall trees and bushes that provide shade and privacy. The pitches are located on terraces or directly on the water and are demarcated with low bushes. The ground is grassy. 

Want to hire something? You can also book a mobile home, tent or chalet. The rental accommodations seem to be very close together at first glance, but are looking good and have sufficient privacy.

Water park with a theme

The water park on the campsite has an Indian theme. The kids can play in a teepee by the swimming pool. There is also a swimming pool with a current and and a toddler pool with a slide. Around the pools there are several chairs and loungers. 

Lake with plenty of opportunities

In the nearby lake, you can practice water sports: kayaking, surfing, sailing, waterskiing and fishing are just a few options. There is also a jetty and in the water there are a few inflatable toys. You can easily rent a kayak, surfboard and boat at the campsite. You can also take surfing and sailing lessons. 

A snack al fresco

Considering that it is about 30 km driving to the nearest large supermarket, it's nice that you can get all of your groceries on the campsite. For a snack away from the camper or caravan, come to the camping restaurant.

Travelling party: Seniors

Liked - This site is a wonderful site situated alongside a lake in a remote part of France. It is a well maintained and managed site offering a great holiday experience. On arrival we were great in a very friendly manner at reception.Our pitch was a good size pitch and again well maintained. The toilet/shower facilities a cleaned regularly and are very clean. There is anexcellent swimming pool on site and you can also swim in the lake. We ate in the restaurant and had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. All in all a great site which we fully enjoyed
Disliked - The very tight access to the pitch. It is advisable to use a motor mover.

Liked - Love this site, this was our 3rd visit here. We had a beach side pitch right on the Lac, perfect for swimming and canoeing. The facilities on the site are excellent as are all the staff. The local town of Salles Curan has everything you need and is a cycle ride away. ACSI is accepted out of high season as well. We will be back. Thank you all.
Disliked - No

Liked - The facilities were all good and kept very clean. Beach-side pitch was a real bonus giving direct access to the lake for swimming in the clear water, and launching our canoe. Games area is good for kids with plenty of space. Pool is excellent. The surrounding area is very pretty and good for cycling, but if you are looking for nearby towns and villages, you will have to travel some distance, except for Salles Curan which has sufficient shops for most needs.

Liked - Les Genet is a well looked after site in a beautiful setting. The staff are always friendly and helpful and the lakeside pitches are fantastic. The restaurant is open every day and is very good with speciality dishes on Thursdays. If you like water sports, this is the site to be.
