Our tips for the lakes of the Ain

Holidaying on the lakes of the Ain                                                                       

Nestled among the mountains of the Ain lie many lakes, so inviting with their crystal clear waters. Around each pass of Haut-Bugey you come across the emerald green waters, while the lake beaches of Nantua and Genin offer recreation amid the captivating green landscape. Aside from lake beaches perfect for swimming, many lakes of the Ain have marinas and aquatic centres where you can hire pedalos or canoes. The centre at la Plaine Tonique gives you access to the vast waters of the lake.

Campsites at the water's edge                                                                 

Several lakes of the Ain have campsites where you can spend an idyllic holiday, with your own caravan or with the convenience of a rental. Depending on your preference, enjoy the comforts equivalent to a 4 star hotel or enjoy the simple pleasures of pitching your tent amid stunning scenery (and for a modest cost). Many of these campsites offer direct access to the lakes of the Ain, with their own beach - perfect for swimming in the Rhône-Alpes.
