Campsite Lac de Carouge ***

General information

Just inside Savoie, bordering the Haute Savoie and close to St. Pierre-d’Albigny, you will find the picturesque Camping Lac de Carouge. The campsite is situated on the lake with the same name. The Haute-Savoie is a very mountainous region which includes the Mont Blanc massif on the Italian/French border. The campsite therefore forms an excellent base for excursions in this challenging region.

Nature, Confort or Privilège

On the grounds you can choose between pitches of 90-140 m2 in the categories ‘Nature’, ‘Confort’ (= ‘Nature’ + electricity) or ‘Privilège’ (= ‘Confort’ + water). This makes the campsite ideal for an extended stay. It is advisable to book your preference in advance (online) to secure your pitch. In peak season the choice will be limited when you arrive unexpectedly. The campsite also has chalets and mobile homes for rental, all with their own shower/toilet.

For the children

Camping Lac de Carouge is very suitable for families with (young) children, with lots of activities organised by the enthusiastic camping employees. Each day (excluding Saturdays) there is a Kids Club and sports and games activities are organised for the slightly older children. In addition, camping guests have free access to the nearby municipal swimming pool (800 m). Naturally, you can also swim (supervised in summer), go pedal boating or fishing in the lake.

Activities

Each week special mountain excursions are organised (at a fee) under the supervision of qualified guides. For instance, mountain excursions on a via ferrata (secured climbing trip) or canyoning along wildly churning brooks and rivers.

Chris Rippin, on this campsite in June 2014

Travelling party: Seniors

Difficult to understand why this lovely site is so underused in the middle of June. The staff are really friendly, the toilet block is modern and clean with plenty of hot water, the pitches are flat and all large to very large separated by mature hedges with plenty of shade for those that need it. The lake next to the site is delightful, perfect for an evening stroll, with a safe area for swimming. Not a lot to recommend in the nearby village of St Pierre d’Albigny but Chambery, Aix les Bains, Albertville and even Annecy are all within easy reach. A drive round Lac de Bourget is a must as is a visit to L’Abbe Royale de Hautecombe on the western shore.
