Watery peace on the shores of a splendidly pretty blue lake (do see pics), spectacular views of said lake from each and every pitch, and kayaking, fishing, sailing and ambling all around… what a relaxing time will be had at Camping le Calatrin.
The lush surrounding lake is Paladru in the Isère department of the Rhône-Alps, the fifth biggest natural lake in la France and a prime spot for watersports, cycling and summer swimming. More of the same can be had all around the Chartreuse Regional Nature Park, about 21 kilometres from the lake's eponymous town of Paladru.
Camping le Calatrin is a big, laidback and family-friendly site with the aim of making guests' stays as easy and relaxing as possible: fresh bread can be delivered to your pitch every morning on request, barbecues are all set up for guests' use, and kids have plenty to keep them busy at the playground, ping pong table and games room. Sports and cultural activities are run for all ages by the friendly site team and welcome drinks are offered on arrival.
The site also has a laundry, toilets and showers and a parent and baby washroom. There's free wifi throughout.

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.

To the lake first: Camping le Calatrin is right on the shores of the glacial blue lake of Paladru, a place of many outdoor activities including watersports and fishing. Kayaks, paddle boats and paddleboards can be hired 200 metres from the site; if you're more avid about angling, you can pick up a permit from the reception team.
For wanders, plentiful hiking paths around the lake will take you to different viewpoints over the water and the Isère department; a bike path is also around if you prefer to cruise about on two wheels, and horse riding is available too for those who want to canter. A treetop adventure park is a few kilometres from the site if you'd rather swing between branches.
Cultured types can get along to the big exhibition space and tastings of the Cellar and Distillery of the Grande Chartreuse in Voiron; the archaeological museum in Charavines and the Château de Virieu, built in the fifteenth century and now an official French monument.
