Le Clos du Lac , Provence, France
Activities Fishing, swimming
Perched at 1,485 metres on the leading edge of Ecrins national park, this mountain site offers Instagrammable views from the tent door and a range of picture-perfect outdoor experiences. Serre-Poncon lake is a short walk away, for swimming or angling, and nearby Boscodon forest has a host of hiking trails. At the campsite, there’s a volleyball courtroom, children’ play-act area and botanical garden home to nine species of butterfly. By night, the stargazing is superb.
