La Ravoire Holiday Park

La Ravoire is a small park with really excellent facilities and stunning views the Alps wherever you look. Sounds too good to be true? Well it really is as lovely as it sounds. This little park makes a great holiday for young families and for those who want to explore the Alps. The park s facilities include a great little reception, a minimarket for your self-catering needs and a main shop for the other holiday goodies. You’ll also find a useful laundry on site as well

Even though there are only 122 pitches there’s no shortage of choice. The site opens 15th May until 15th September and offers either tent or chalet accommodation.

Tents are two bedrooms affairs with one double and one twin room and a comfortable living and kitchen space. Your tents will have newly fitted canvasses in 2012 and you will be able to let down the outside canvasses during the day. The kitchen has a grill and gas rings and there is also a barbecue which, with the patio furniture means great family meals al-fresco.

Chalets at la Ravoir are two bedrooms and all have private shower and loos. There is also a separate kitchen and living space and the kitchen has everything you’d expect from a kitchen apart from a dishwasher – well the old man can handle that. There is a barbecue provided and you can book a chalet with decking which means you can spend happy warm evenings eating as a family.

Facilities & Activities at La Ravoire

La Ravoirse has a gaming room with table football, pool and video games so why not get your own Olympics going this summer?

The site has a great little snack bar and take away serving frites, pizza, burgers and chilli (wow – didn’t expect to see that on the menu) which is great for lunch time hunger pangs.

There are three great pools for the family, for toddlers and for those tear-aways who want to use the slides and chutes. Whichever pool you choose the scenery is quite stunning with the Alps so close you could almost touch them. On site you can also play a variety of sports including tennis, table tennis, badminton, volleyball and boules., You’ll also find a small lively bar, where they have music and entertainment during high season.

You are also less than a mile from Lake Annecy one of the biggest lakes in the region and as you’d expect there are water sports of all colours available including windsurfing, canoeing, rowing and dinghy sailing. If you travel a little further afield you can abseil, ride horses and play 18 holes. The nearest town of Doussard is less than three miles away – watch out for paragliders as there is a landing strip close to the town – just remember to duck (only joking). The town is a pretty alpine town and has plenty of cafes, restaurants and shops to keep you off the streets. There are some really interesting attractions in the local area including the Aqaurium du Lac du Bourget, an aquarium on the edge of Frances largest lake and Chateau de Montrottier which as a great collection of military artefacts.

Family Travel Guide to The Alps – France

Somehow the Alps never seem very French but that’s such a mistake to make. The French Alps really do have the best of both worlds – all that’s good about France, food, wine, weather and the best scenery to boot.

    In the our children’s words “Best Holiday Ever!” It is only a small site so you get to know the staff and the owner who is very approachable if you have any questions or just want to chat.

    The site is very clean and the atmosphere is very friendly. The facilities are well maintained and of an high standard. The lake just few metres away and if you like water sport you’re in for a real treat.
