The lake right next to the campsite

General

  • Between Provençal lavender meadows and the peaks of the southern Alps
  • By a shallow lake for watersports and swimming
  • Two heated pools, waterslides, Jacuzzi, restaurant and playground

A lake, two brothers and a splendid setting between Provençal lavender meadows and the peaks of the southern Alps… there are reasons aplenty why Les Rives du Lac is such an excellent and enthused-about place to stay.

Les Rives is family-run, with one brother managing the site and the second running the restaurant, both making it their mission to ensure you and yours have a comfy stay. It's all on the banks of a small, calm lake with frequent watersports activities during July and August – or you could just decide to have gentle dips instead: as it's fairly shallow, water temperatures are around 24°C in summer.

And. What a lot there is to do here after you've dried yourself off from a dip in the lake. Don't change out of your swimming togs with too much haste, as you'll want to check out the site waterpark: there are two heated and covered pools (or uncovered, if the weather allows), as well as a Jacuzzi, waterslides and a paddling pool.

Done? Check out the multisports court, table tennis, table football and pétanque court of a summer morning while the kids are at their activity club... then settle down in the evening to take in the July and August entertainment, including outdoor cinema screenings and free concerts on the restaurant terrace. Or you and the kids could get busy or leisurely with the help of the play area with giant trampoline, or fishing from the site, or free wifi, or bike hire...

Off site, Les Rives is about 10 minutes' drive from the Provence town of Veynes, five minutes' walk from the amusement park of Base de Loisirs des Iscles and half an hour's drive from department capital Gap.

  • Liked: 

    Great relaxed atmosphere to enjoy time off, a lot to offer for all age groups. Would highly recommend to friends and family and I would return again.

    The campsite felt secure enough to leave our children to enjoy freedom and the campsite with little supervision.

    Disliked: 

    The pitches could be flattened out a bit and the pathway lights are a bit bright perhaps could do with something equally as low and to the sides rathe4 than the middle of the pathway.

  • Liked: 

    Vacinity to the lake was amazing . The lake is shallow and warm. There are lifeguards between day time hours. The toilet facilities are clean and easy to use. The pool is clean. The facilities for children are available and safe

    Disliked: 

    You will need to travel to use any of the extra opportunities like canyoning. This I found a little bit misleading from the brochure. The cost of the inflatable on the lake and the sup boards to hire is quite expensive. The pitches are close and not individualised at all by hedges.

  • Liked: 

    perfecte afhandeling van de eigenaar ivm het teveel betaalde.
    we hadden een comfort plaats besteld maar daar mochten geen auto's bij de caravan. Overigens waren deze plaatsen super. Maar de gewone plaatsen waar we dus naar verplaatst werden ivm de hond die in de auto slaapt waren ook oké

    Disliked: 

    het was absoluut NIET duidelijk uit de info dat de auto NIET bij de caravan geparkeerd mocht worden bij de grote comfort plaatsen.

    Verboden voor honden in een groot gebied. M.n bij het meertje en daarvoor hadden we deze plek gekozen maar dat heeft niks met de camping zelf te maken.

Directions


Local attractions

Les Rives du Lac has the warm weather of the Provence in a mountainous landscape, in a tiptop base for outdoor pursuits with many accessible directly from or close to the site: try swimming in the lake, fishing, hiking, cycling, mountain biking, treetop adventure climbing courses, horse and pony riding, miniature golf, pedalo boating...

Too much activity for one trip? Potter around the Provençal villages instead, seeing where your car leads you around the local gorges, rock formations, bee and cheese farms, old churches, and castles (many of them hosting music festivals throughout the summer).

Many markets selling local produce are around too, such as the Marché de Gap, the biggest market in the Hautes-Alpes region, which runs on Saturday mornings in the main square.
