Camping La Pergola

If you want to go camping in the beautiful French countryside, there are plenty of options to choose from, but those in the know head to the Jura La Pergola campsite located in the mid east of France, close to Geneva, the Swiss border, and the Jura Mountains Regional Natural Par, in the heart of Frances lake district on the shores of Lake Chalain. The well maintained campsite has plenty to do right on site, but most come for the hiking and biking opportunities along the trails, as well as water sports like kayaking and wind surfing.

The site has a vast range of accommodation options available to guests including camping pitches available for tents, motorhomes, and caravans, and wooden cabins for extra comfort. The touring pitches are large at over 100 square metres big offering plenty of space. Most of the pitches are shaded and have electrical and water hook ups, particularly useful those bring their motorhomes.

If you don't have a motorhome and don't want to camp, there is a range of accommodation options to choose from depending on whether you visit as a couple, group, or family.
