- Quiet family-run site by the Aravis mountain range
- 700 metres from Saint-Jean-de-Sixt and 30 minutes' drive from Annecy
- Spectacular scenery, spotless amenities and friendly vibe
Travelling in the French Alps? Do yourself a highly handy favour and stop off at Camping du Crêt for a spell. This peaceful place is rightly lauded by its guests for its spectacular views, spotless amenities, friendly vibe and excellent setting – making it what one guest hails as a must-visit among the French Alps.
If you're going to see for yourself (seriously, do yourself a favour), this smashing site is just outside the Haute-Savoie town of Saint-Jean-de-Sixt, in the Aravis range of the French Alps, between the La Clusaz and Grand Bornand. The splendid lake of Annecy, the third biggest in France, is about half an hour's drive away for fishing, swimming, sailing, and basking on its sandy beach.
Rock climbing, canyoning, via ferrata, paragliding, mountain biking, skiing, horse riding and golf are all easily accessed from here, along with another beach at Passy lake, thermal spas at Thermes de Saint-Gervais , and guided tours around the foothills of mighty Mont Blanc. But you can bid a cheery au revoir to your wheels here if you wish: it's about 700 metres from Camping du Crêt to town, and walks and hikes into the mountains are all around the site. Dithering on what to do? Ask the friendly team at reception for info and tips.
Camping du Crêt is family-run ,with excellently-kept amenities and plenty of space. There's wifi and a launderette, spotless toilets and showers, a washing-up area and – see pics – spectacular scenery and colourful flowers all around.
Groceries, ice cream, drinks and the like are at the site shop, where you can also order bread and baguettes for the following morning.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Activities for all tastes are all around the site, ranging from walks and hikes in the immediate surroundings to sailing, skiing, climbing and paragliding within a short drive. The region has plenty of markets and local events too: ask the Camping du Crêt team what's on while you're here.
Whatever activity you plump for, make time too for a trip to Lake Annecy/ Lac d'Annecy 30 minutes to the west and acclaimed as one of the cleanest lakes in Europe. As you might expect with such vast and clear waters, swimming and sailing are popular here; away from the water, potter around Annecy's towns and villages, or take one of the many trails the trail skirting around the lake.
One of the most famed Annecy villages is Talloires, flocked to for decades by arty and posh sorts, as well as active types to tackle the heaps of outdoor activities in its surroundings: the Tour de France has wound around here several times, and golf, horse riding, paragliding and canyoning are all popular picks from town.
For hiking, take the hour-long trek from the village to the Cascade d’Angon waterfall, to the east of the lake, or the hour to the medieval Château de Menthon-Saint-Bernard above the village, for guided tours.
