Campsite Description

At the foot of the Aravis mountain range, Camping LÂ’Escale is set amidst magnificent scenery, just a 250m walk from the lively Alpine village of Le Grand Bornand. The site has excellent facilities, which include a large aqua complex, comprising heated outdoor (June - August) and covered (May - September) pools, two jacuzzis, two paddling areas, water jets and a lagoon. The unique wooden beamed bar and restaurant are housed in a 200 year old alpage, which is traditionally decorated, and serves regional dishes, in a delightfully warm ambience. The pitches on site are either hard standing for caravans, or grassy for camping, and all are flat and open. This is an excellent choice for an outdoor holiday, as the area abounds in mountain walks, with the site also able to arrange trips to Chamonix Mont Blanc and organise mountain skiing. There is evening entertainment in the bars and restaurants of Le Grand Bornand, and the occasional soirée is organised on the campsite.
