General

  • Family-run site in mature woodland among the French Alps
  • Close to Tour de France routes and Écrins National Park
  • Heated pool, sunbathing area, playground and restaurant

Meet here for sparkling stays: Camping à la Rencontre du Soleil near the Isère department's Le Bourg-d'Oisans is in a land laden with outdoor activities: its setting in the French Alps is in the Romanche river valley, surrounded by mountain resorts like Alpe d'Huez and Les Deux Alpes, and close to the hiking and climbing and Écrins National Park.

If you want to tackle the region on two wheels, the Alpe d'Huez is often on the route of the Tour de France and nearby mountain pass Col de la Croix de Fer has been on the tour umpteen times. And if it's shops and cities you prefer to get active among, Le Bourg-d'Oisan is between Grenoble and Briançon, and about 40 kilometres from Poligny.

Scenic stays are sorted here too, as Rencontre du Soleil's hectare and a half setting is among mature woodland with over 180 species of flowers, trees and shrubs and a spectacular mountain backdrop. Its modern facilities include a heated pool, surrounded by greenery for both shade and sun, and with plenty of sunbeds and sun loungers on which to bask.

The site also has a sports area, a playground and a restaurant serving French classics and modern options. Regular activities are organised by the staff in high season.

Please note

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 01/05 and 30/09 (subject to weather conditions).

Local attractions

Peaceful mountain stays and active adrenalised days are both easily had from here, from gentle lake strolls to hiking to hang-gliding.

Local town Le Bourg d'Oisans is a good starting point whichever option you pick, as it has easy access south-east to Écrins National Park and its many activities such as rafting, whitewater rafting, canyoning, horse riding, summer skiing, paragliding, hang-gliding and cycling.

If you want to tackle part of the Tour de France route, hire a bike in Le Bourg d'Oisans and cycle up to the tourist office a certificate of official completion is available for a small charge. More gentle cycles as well as walks and hikes are also available nearby at Saint Christophe, Les Perrons, l'Alpe d'Huez and Les Freaux.

Grenoble about 28 kilometres from base is another popular stop in the region, for sights such as the mountains spread out below from one of its famed cable cars, and attractions including the Museum of Grenoble and the works of Stendhal at the town museum.

If you're driving around the region, Grenoble is also the end of the Route Napoléon, following Bonaparte's 350-kilometre journey to here from Cannes.
