Welcome to aiguebelette

Lake and mountain region

Lac d’Aiguebelette is the 3rd natural lake in France. A setting in the hollow of the mountains, surprising shades of blue and green, dotted with paddles, boats and swimmers, and paragliders in the blue of the sky. First for its purity of water, it offers exceptional lake fauna and flora. Seen from the Col de l'Épine or the Col du Banchet, the panorama is magical!

And we are in Savoie! Numerous hiking trails surround our campsite, through woods, on ridges, at altitude... You will explore Chartreuse, Vanoise, Bauges or Maurienne. Discovering the castle of the Dukes of Savoy and the old town of Chambéry. A region of lakes, those of neighboring Aix-les-Bains and Annecy.
Many Savoyard specialties will also make you happy, restaurants around the lake and pizzas, burgers, fries and ice creams :) Many producers and the Novalaise market will delight you and open their doors! You will take home good products, meats, cheeses and liqueurs...
Many activities are possible outside the campsite such as Lake Aiguebelette, for swimming, fishing and even a boat trip.

Beauvoisin Bridge
City steeped in history. With the treaty of 1355, the Franco-Savoyard border was fixed at Guiers vive. There are now 2 communes of the Pont de Beauvoisin, stage and toll between France & Savoie.
Today the bridge is still there, witness to history. Many other monuments are remarkable: the Carmes church and the old convent overlooking the “hanging gardens” above the Guiers, the Carmes passage spanning the Saint Felix fountain whose water restored sight to the blind. .
Not to mention Pont, city of furniture...
The Carmelite church in Pont de Beauvoisin. Originating in 1157 from a Benedictine establishment, the church is classified as a historic monument. Trompe l'oeil paintings, portals, necropolises (especially that of the lord of Montbel).
Other churches, although less mentioned, are just as remarkable:
     Dullin church in Gothic style from the 15th century also listed.
     Original Ayn church in the shape of its bell tower.
     The Romanesque chapel of Saint Didier d'Aoste is well worth the detour.
     Church of Novalaise baptistery and pietà in gilded wood from the 18th century.
