General

  • In a pine forest close to the Ecrins National Park
  • Many outdoor activities available: sandy beach within 3km
  • On-site restaurant serving local cuisine

The team at peaceful Saint James Les Pins in the Hautes-Alpes reckon their scenic and well-placed campsite is a topping option for those who want a relaxing break in a serene French setting – and with stacks to do both on site and nearby.

Set in a Guillestre pine forest, Saint James Les Pins is between the valley of Queyras and the Massif des Écrins, the mountain range at the centre of the nearby and wildlife-filled Ecrins National Park. A sandy beach for sunbathing is at the lushly green Eygliers Lake three kilometres away, and fishing, canoeing, sailing and water-skiing at the Serre-Ponçon Lake, one of the biggest artificial lakes in Europe and within 18 kilometres.

This is also a topping place if you want to sample trad French cuisine without going off site: try local specialties like tourte d’Aiguilles and Montbardon cheese at the Saint James restaurant, all accompanied (mais oui) with lashings of Châteauroux wine.

Saint James has comfy and modern facilities, including new toilet blocks with showers, a launderette and a washing-up corner. There's also a TV room, a library and a pétanque court.

Directions


Local attractions

Hiking, canoeing, rock climbing and mountaineering among spectacular landscapes are all easily accessible nearby in the popular French Alps setting of the Ecrins National Park, the mountainous region where over 800,000 activity and scenery seekers flock to each year.

Another popular nearby option is Serre-Ponçon Lake, a vast expanse of 3,000 hectares scenically set among the mountains and with activities on water and land including fishing, swimming, sailing, hiking, horse riding, climbing and mountain biking. The village of Savines-le-Lac, about halfway round the lake on the southern side, is where to go for boat tours, windsurfing, waterskiing and wakeboarding.

Also famed in the region around Saint James Les Pins are the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Mont-Dauphin Fort, built by the French military architect Sébastien Le Prestre de Vauban – you'll want to bring a camera to snap the spectacular views from here – and the village of L'Argentière-la-Bessée on the edge of the Écrins National Park, to take an underground trip around its old silver mines at the Fournel Silver Mines and Mining Museum.
