About Camping Les Dômes de Miage
Tents, motorhomes, dogs (if vaccinated and kept on a lead) – yes.
It's all about the mountains here. Mont Blanc (literally) looms over everything. While a climbing expedition will be beyond most campers' means, you can hop on the Mont Blanc Tramway (0033 450 532 275) from Saint-Gervais-les-Bains-Le Fayet station, to savour the views from Nid d'Aigle (2380m elevation), in front of the Bionnassay glacier. For less exertive activities, Saint-Gervais-les-Bains boasts an ice rink (0033 450 935 002) and leisure centre down the road with heated pools (indoor, outdoor, paddling), tennis courts, crazy golf, beach volleyball. You can also hire mountain bikes from here. The market in Saint-Gervais-les-Bains hosts a market every Thursday from 8am – 1pm. Bask in the healing mountain waters at Les Thermes de Saint-Gervais Mont Blanc (0033 450 475 454), a thermal spa that's just the ticket for recharging those batteries. Some of the French Alps' most famous ski resorts are all within easy reach of Saint-Gervais, including Megève and Chamonix (site of the first Winter Olympics in 1924). Further afield, Lake Annecy makes for a wonderful day trip. This breathtaking body of water (France's third largest lake) is a popular spot for swimming and watersports. Why not extend your trip to Switzerland? Geneva is only 80km away – don't forget to bring your passport!
