Camping le Taillefer, France

Camping le Taillefer is a lovely little campsite off Lac Annecy, near Doussard. Directly opposite, on the other side of the lake, is a paragliding take off point which provides no end of entertainment.

The site is basic with well manicured pitches. The showers and toilets are clean. It has all of the facilities that one needs for a successful camping experience.

Dogs are welcome, and there were quite a few when we stayed. The couple who run the place are very lovely and their English is excellent.

Although dogs are not allowed on beaches around the lake, I found a small place in Brendenaz down the road. There is a cycle path that goes almost all the way around the lake. It was a good hour to Annecy from base camp. It is just a short hop to get to the cycle path depending on which way you want to go.

There are plenty of walks to go on in the area, which was great for the dogs.  We liked it so much here that we stayed a few extra days! This also gave Bob some extra time for some paragliding. Here are some photos I took during our stay!
