Le Lac

France - Alps - Saint-Vincent-les-Forts

Camping Le Lac

What a spot for a campsite: on the shores of the crystal clear lake Serre-Poncon with the mountains towering above you. A hang glider floats high in the blue sky and a water skier flies across the water. A simply perfect location!

Why camping Le Lac ?

  • A small, natural site set out in terraces beside the glassy lake Serre-Poncon. The view of the mountains and the lake will delight you every day of your stay.
  • A first class address for nature lovers, but also for children. They can swim, play, hire a pedal boat or just hang around the beaches at the water's edge. Next step? To conquer the cool rafts floating in the lake.
  • Nothing beats a dip in the lake, but the ecological pool comes a close second. Plus there's a separate splash pool for little ones.
  • Plenty of facilities: Restaurant, friendly bar, sports field, entertainment tent, bowling alley.
  • This area is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. Paragliging, wild water sports, mountain biking - take your pick.
  • Make sure to take good hiking boots. It's great to explore the woods and mountains here and you may well spot marmots!

Tip from the specialist:

"Small, 'back to nature' campsite on the banks of a crystal clear lake, Serre-Poncon. The view is magnificent. Water fun guaranteed in the lake and the ecological pool. Enjoy walking, cycling and outdoor activities in the Ubaye valley."

The surrounding area of Le Lac

At an altitude of 800m, campsite Le Lac is located on the shores of lake Serre-Poncon. This is the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence region with a sunny climate and endless natural beauty. The village of Saint-Vincent-des-Forts is just 5km from the campsite, a popular spot for paragliders and hang-gliders.

Some tips for your holiday at Le Lac in Saint-Vincent-les-Forts

  • Drive around the lake and discover small, deserted beaches. With a little luck you won't even have to share them.
  • The Ubaye valley (the Ubaye river rises in Italy and flows into lake Serre-Poncon) is a natural paradise. Visit the Le Lauzet waterfall, not far from the campsite.
  • A day out with the kids? Head for the zoo La Montagne aux Marmottes in La Sauze du Lac. Always a success.
  • The bustling town of Barcelonnette is 30km away but well worth the trip. A maze of shopping streets full of quaint boutiques and restuarants. Lots of festivals and events are held here. A lovely holiday atmosphere!
  • Go to Gap, a charming mountain town set at almost 800m altitude. The pedestrianised streets let you stroll around for hours, until you settle down on a terrace on the splendid Jean Marcellinplein square.
  • Feeling active? Hop on a bike or mountain bike. Go boating or surfing on the lake or for the more adventurous, go paragliding and soar high above the beautiful countryside.
