In the rugged nature of the French High Alps, in the Rhône-Alpes region, lies Camping Sites & Paysages à la Rencontre du Soleil (in short: A la Rencontre du Soleil). You camp here at the foot of the Alpe d’Huez, known from the Tour de France. The area is an excellent destination for seekers of peace and quiet, nature lovers, cyclists and mountain hikers. The camping site has a restaurant (with terrace), bar and shop.
Camping on flowery grounds
The well maintained, cheerful looking camping site with its numerous flowers, offers spacious pitches on grass. A small river, in which you can paddle, flows along the camping site. Demarcated with high hedges, bushes and tall, deciduous trees and conifers, most pitches offer ample shade and privacy.
Swimming with a view
The oval swimming pool of Camping A la Rencontre du Soleil has a sliding roof and offers a splendid view of the surrounding mountains. The pool is beautifully designed, well maintained and has a depth of approx. 90-120 cm. You will find a few loungers on the decorated tiles around the swimming pool, so bring your book or e-reader!
Entertainment for all
Children can keep themselves busy on a small playground, multi-sports terrain, tennis court or on the large playing field. A rainy day? Off with the children to the bad weather facility or the kids club (in high season). In the evenings there are regular performances and music shows. The camping site also organises excursions.
Bites and drinks
In the summer season the bar and the restaurant (with full menu) are operational. The catering facility looks well maintained and is attractively furnished including some sofas.

There are three campsites close together in the village of Sarennes: I chose this one because it has a proper restaurant which stays open into September, but from what I saw it seems the best of the three in other ways. The sanitary facilities are good quality and well looked after. Some pitches are on the small side, and being bordered by high hedges they have a slightly claustrophobic feel; but that is my only criticism.
