Le Grand Calme camping site is located partially under a lush canopy of deciduous trees, at the foot of various mountain peaks, including the famous Alpe d’Huez. The Verney lake is close by. This is the ideal camping site for fans of mountain sport, cyclists and mountain bikers, who love the rugged nature of the high mountains.
The camping site, run by two friendly and helpful brothers, is situated along the through road towards the Col de la Croix-de-Fer, on the main street of the quiet village of Le Bourg-d’Oisans.
Camping on a green alpine meadow
Upon arrival the campsite looks like a spacious and fresh alpine meadow with beautiful, large deciduous trees, surrounded by beautiful wooded mountain scenery. The demarcated pitches with plenty of privacy are spread over the grounds on a beautiful lawn. There is partial shade thanks to the (medium)tall leafy trees. A shallow stream runs through the site. Mobile homes and bungalows can be hired.

In May this was a perfect haven of peace and quiet with good size, flat, well cut pitches with magnificent views of the mountains. The welcome was warm. The facilities clean.The unfenced small stream running through the site would make it not suitable for small children.
There is a boulangerie in the village and a well stocked small village shop. Absolutely loved our stay here and stayed longer than we intended.
Heerlijke eenvoudige camping, prachtige ligging met uitzicht op de bergen. Zeer vriendelijk personeel en uitstekend sanitair, wel met douchemuntjes. Eind augustus/begin september heel rustig en dus echt grand calme. Perfecte uitvalsbasis voor fietsers. Spar, restaurants en zwembad op loopafstand.
