General

  • In a pine forest close to the Écrins National Park
  • Many outdoor activities available nearby; sandy beach within 3km
  • On-site restaurant serving local cuisine and Châteauroux wine

The team at peaceful Camping Saint James Les Pins in the Hautes-Alpes area reckon their scenic and well-placed site is a top 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 Écrins 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 top place if you want to sample trad French cuisine without going off site: try local specialities 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.

Nice site close to the town of Guillestre08/13/2019

    We spent three nights at St James and very much enjoyed.
    We liked
    The welcome
    It's close proximity to Guillestre (15 minute walk)
    A bubbling river close by (and its stream pool)
    Its character - it has an unique quirkiness
    Bar and restaurant onsite
    Ideal for a cyclist nestled between the Col d'Izoard and the Col de Var.

    Nada. No lo recomiendo en absoluto.

    Disliked: 

    Es un camping antiguo con parcelas pequeñas e irregulares. Los servicios están sucios, la red wifi es de pago (a pesar de lo que dicen) y la recepción increíblemente informal (tuvimos que cambiar de parcela a media instalación). Está en una hondonada y es terriblemente ruidoso. No te atienden en el bar del camping si no reservas previamente. No se corresponde en nada con las fotos.

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 Écrins National Park, the mountainous region where over 800,000 activity and scenery seekers flock 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 the place 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.
