Campsite Les Cariamas is located n the edge of the Ecrins National Park, in the midst of the mountains of Hautes-Alpes. If you love the wild nature of the French Alps, this simple but well-maintained campsite is an ideal holiday destination. The campsite is situated at an altitude of almost a thousand metres and is a good starting point for a brisk mountain hike or bike ride.
Pitch with sanitary facilities
Although you can sometimes hear the traffic noise of the nearby N94, the campsite Les Cariamas is generally quiet. You are camping in a natural environment, in which the pitches are arranged orderly. A special feature are the sanitary facilities: there is a small sanitary block on each pitch. You don't have your own camping equipment? Book a stay in one of the various rental accommodations. The wooden chalets in particular fit in beautifully with the landscape.
Lac de Serre-Ponçon
The swimming pool is situated under the lee of some tall trees. This round pool is not particularly large, but nice for cooling down after a long day of walking or cycling. If you really want to indulge yourself in or on the water, the nearby Lac de Serre-Ponçon is the right destination. In this reservoir, which is surrounded by high mountain ranges, you can enjoy a lovely swim. With an area of almost 30 km2 the water sports possibilities are endless.
On the Lac de Serre-Ponçon there are a few villages. One of them is Embrun. This old town is home to a number of places of interest, of which the cathedral in particular is worth a visit. Furthermore, Embrun is a delightful place with many sidewalk cafés and restaurants.
