Hello all, we're a family of 4 with 2 DDs 9 and 4. We've been to Les Valades for the past couple of years but have been around that area a fair bit and fancy a change.

Looking for recs for a campsite with a pool in the Alps or other European mountain setting. Lots seem to be very low key with no pool. We loved the set up/vibe of less Valades so.def don't need all singing /dancing but a pool on site is a must!

Any ideas /recommendations would be fab.

Have a look around lake Annecy, there are loads of nice sites on the lake shore and the lake is great for swimming. There's a bike path all the way down the lake too for access to the public beaches and other villages.

Thanks. Will do. Was the traffic terrible, rungs a bell from previous posts that this was a problem.

I think annecy itself can get pretty bad but tbh you'd be best off hiring bikes for the week and using the bike path.

We're going here in the summer - I think it looks lovely!

What about the auvergne region? It's beautiful. We stayed in murol at la ribeyre. Much bigger than les valades but I love both sites. The region is much less touristy than the Dordogne.

Many thanks all.
Yes to considering the Auvergne. Looks beautiful with lots to do? La ribeyre looks a bit big for us tbh but will do.some more research locally.

I know! I have high hopes. They sound lovely on the phone and the experienced campers who recommended it said it was their best camping holiday ever.
