Has anybody got any camp sites\aires they can recommend as near as possible to Lake Annecy, we want somewhere for a week close to the lake, not been before so any site would be great, and route down to lake, non tolls.
Many thanks

We stayed on the municipal campsite (I think)
Le Belvedere? It was close to the town but a walk down hill and then back up to the campsite. There was no pool but it’s closeness to the town won it for us as we were only there for 2 days to visit the town. Some pitches are smaller than others but I reserved online and they kept us a larger pitch!

There are other sites closer to the lake but further away from the town. If you have bikes some of these would be an easy cycle ride into the town.

As we had called in on our way back from skiing we went for a site closest to Annecy as we didn’t take the bikes.

As for the route we went on a non toll route there more or less but toll route back to Calais!! Can’t remember our exact routes now though!

Good Luck

Non-toll route is fantastic and fast via Belgium, Luxembourg, Metz, Nancy, Epinal, Vesoul, Besancon (loads of free aires and nice places to stop). Then you can go over the Jura mountains past Geneva (hilly but very scenic) or a flatter route via Oyonnax, or use the motorway for just that last section (expensive in a big rig).
Some of the nicest campsites are at the south end of the lake (Lac Bleu and Nubliere are great value, right on the lake, with lovely car free cycle routes to Annecy) but loads of others closer to the town.
I'm there every year paragliding ...... (y)

If you can get on the Aire close to Annecy old town, you will be lucky. It’s s place we visit a lot. We managed to get a space, the last one in March 2017. Great location, but abused by overstayers.

My preference is the south end of the lake at Doussard. Camping international de lac blue.

Right on the lake, all facilities and you can safely cycle into annecy or take the boat in season.

Getting better month by month.
Last Summer we stayed at Le Rives Du Lac. Right on the Lake with its own little beach area. Not sure if it is seasonal, but it is a nice site. Quite expensive, but Lakeside in the Summer, we had to pay up. It is alongside a cycle track which goes into town and all the way around and passed the town Aire, which as stated above was abused by the overstayers, but if you can get in, then it is only across the road to the lake and boat club. We came from Switzerland, so cannot give a good toll free route down, but Belgium - Luxembourg - Metz and so on seems the best route as above.

Last year we stayed at Lake Annecy on a Municipal site. Lovely site, few at warden but long walk to the lakeside. Unfortunately I can't remember the name. I don't think it was called La Belvedere but there were quite a few closer to the Lake.

hi, we stayed on I'Aloua Sevrier a few years ago, was quite basic but right next to the cycle path which runs around the lake and straight into the town. Also supermarket a 5 min walk away. Stunning place, if you are there when its market day its amazing all sorts on offer.

We go most years, Le Lac Bleu at Doussard is excellent also Rives Du Lac at Sevrier.
Both on the lake and opposite cycle route.

Le Lac Bleu, Beautiful place with plenty of good sized pitches, I hope Italy comes up to scratch!

Hi @St piran have you used this site before? Is it close by to the lake, shops etc
It’s right on the lake, look at their website and go on the camping map and you’ll see the pitch numbers, choose from them but even the furthest pitches are only 50m or so from the lakeside.
There is a small supermarket next door and a bigger one at Doussard which is only a few mins on bikes or 15/20 mins on foot.
The cycle route is opposite the site and you can ride into Annecy with ease.

We tried to get on a site near Lake Annecy in September. The two we tried were full. You might be luckier in June though. :)

But from what we saw it is very popular and crowded. If this doesn't worry you then I'm sure you will enjoy it. We were just driving through the area so went elsewhere. For us one of the lesser Italian lakes such as Lago d'Iseo would be nicer.

Is this the Le Lac Bleu site @Rob Turner ? Pitch looks great, we are going with funsters friends, they have a Minnie Winnie rv, are the pitch sizes generous?

Yes this is Le Lac Bleu, my van is 7.8m and I’ve had no problems, a bit tight on some pitches but never failed, seen tag axles too.
I’d book with the size of the mh and they’ll advise you. They speak good English so might be worth giving them a bell.

We usually tour around France spending a few days in one spot then moving on. Never really planning anything in particular just see what happens. This has always served us well. Started my own business two years ago and other than some long weekends away in the UK not had a proper holiday. So the plan is to drive down over a couple of days and stay at Le Lac Bleu (booked) and chill for 8 days. Can’t bloody wait:D
