Email me at email@example.com and we'll find it for you.
My recollection is that it was on the east shore of the lake a few k south of Annecy. About 1.5hrs drive from Chamonix.
Thanks, but the little one is only 1, so really just need a spacious site with a good swimming pool. Paddle steamers on lake Annecy sound good but we're a few years off canoes.
On a related note, how do others manage baby bath time on a campsite? Any useful tips?

Ours are a bit bigger now , but quite a few of the campsites we went to when they were younger (N France/ Loire , Holland) had separate children's shower/bathrooms. One in Holland was absolutely amazing, all done out with characters from Snow White and 7 Dwarfs, pint size showers and large basin type baths for tiny ones.
We had a couple of idyllic family holidays, camping at Evolene in the Valais, about 10 years ago. The Swiss Franc/Sterling exchange rate was better then though.
happy new year all
I have emailed the original poster, and thought i would put some info on here as well
I live in the haute alpes, just outside the ecrins national park, this side
is amazing for climbing and other adventure sports, and great for all the
lots of family friendly crags, will all grades, and lots of via ferratas
including ones aimed at little un's there are a few local lakes that are
used for swimming and playing, one with cafe great for a rest day and play
in the water,
there is a fairly family friendly walk up to the glacier (not on to it just
below it) that is done a lot by family groups
there is even a site where you can feed the marmots
some very good camp sites or local accommodation depending on what you are
I have been living here part time for the last few years and will be going
full time from Feb this year,
If any one would like info or advice get in touch i am happy to help out if i can?
