General

  • Riverside site 15 minutes' walk from Guillestre town centre
  • Half an hour's drive from walks and watersports at Lac de Serre-Ponçon
  • Next to a municipal outdoor swimming pool with kids' pool

Mountains, gorgeous green valleys and clear Alpine lakes – oui, it’s really rather a rather lush area that surrounds Camping La Rochette (take a quick flick through the pics to see for yourself).

Just outside the little town of Guillestre, the five-hectare site is flanked by the Écrins National Park and the Queyras Regional Natural Park, meaning ample chances for visitors to get up close and personal with the scenery on foot, by bike, on horseback or in a canoe. Parachuting, canyoning, whitewater rafting and climbing are top picks for anyone in search of a bit of an adrenaline boost.

Should you prefer to regard mountains as a backdrop rather than a playground, there’s plenty to occupy your time on site while you admire from afar. A gentle game of pétanque or table tennis, perhaps, or something rather more energetic on the tennis courts or volleyball pitch… or you could just gaze out over the greenery from a secluded spot, perhaps in the company of a pizza or a drink from the snack bar…

If all the view-admiring doesn’t appeal to your small fry, they can entertain themselves at the playground or with the activities laid on for their amusement during the summer months. And if any of you are in danger of overheating, you can always trot just outside the site and pay a small charge to dive into the municipal pool that’s right next door.

A gentle 15-minute riverside stroll from the site takes you to the centre of Guillestre for foodie foraging in the town’s restaurants or to stock up on supermarket supplies to take back and host your own feast back at the ranch – around the smoking coals of your barbecue should you wish.

Morning-deniers will, however, no doubt be chuffed to hear that there’s no need to complete this walk at sunrise as the site has a bread delivery service to bring freshly baked goodies to your door for a minimal-effort brekkie.

From the manager...

Thank you for your comment.

With the Covid 19, it is forbidden to make toilet paper available. The swimmin pool opens at 10 am and closes at 19:00 (exit of the pools), the last entry is at 18:30. These hours are necessary to be able to disinfect and comply with the new provisions related to the Covid19.

Directions


Local attractions

Walkers and cyclists have the varied trails of both the Écrins National Park and the Queyras Regional Natural Park nearby: the boundaries of each can be reached with a drive of 20 minutes.

The biggest lake in the area is the Lac de Serre-Ponçon, half an hour’s drive away. Come over here to look out over the fab views, take a walk around the edge or skim the surface while waterskiing or windsurfing.

It's a 15-minute drive to Mont-Dauphin and its UNESCO-listed Vauban fortifications. There’s another of these fortifications up in Briançon, 40 minutes away, along with plenty of little cafés to take a rest (it is, after all, alleged to be the highest town in Europe).
