 This site is wonderful.I would mirror everything said in the previous reviews.

The site is spotlessly clean, it is quiet and there are plenty of things to do in the area.

The restaurant / bar on the site is VERY expensive but the Hypermarket approx 8km away is fantastic for the weekly shop and cheap booze!

The site has its own private, lakeside beach which has a life guard throughout the day. The kids loved hiring the Kayaks and touring the lake.

Nearby, Walibi park is great for the kids

If you have a love for the great outdoors then this is the area for you. Kayaking, walking, climbing, mountain biking are just some of the activities available in the area.

There is so much more of this area we want to expt to explore!

I would not hesitate in recommending this site and will go back again at some point.
Enjoy

 Having visited the Aigubellete area many years ago we thought it was time to return, we picked Le Sougey as our base for a nine night stay on a grand comfort pitch providing all services. On arrival the reception were helpful and spoke good English, surprisingly though you pay on departure. We were given our pitch No and the obligatory printed map of the site, and vague directions to the pitch. Having negotiated several tight avenues and making a couple of wrong turns we arrived at our pitch No 423 situated very handily next to the toilet block and other facilities or so we thought.

Couple of issues with this pitch, being peak season the toilet block was busy 24 hours a day and quite noisy, the showers frequently ran out of hot water, though in defence of the site management they were always clean and functional. The other draw back to this pitch is that it is situated close to the road which runs past the site and this added to the overall noise level.

Enough griping, the site is generally set out well with 2 play areas, a couple of table tennis tables, volleyball court and a petanque pitch. The on site bar/restaurant offers a reasonable selection of food though with the exchange rate being so poor a little on the pricey side.

The big plus to the site is the Lake fantastically clear and warm, lifeguards on duty through the day and with a shallow sloping bottom ideal for the kids to play in safely. Well worth a visit are Aix Les Bains, Annecy, Chambery and Chamonix, also a drive up and over the col de l'epine is a must on a clear day the views are stunning. Unfortunately the weather turned against us and we cut our time here short only by 24 hours but nothing the campsite can do about that. The bill was a little on the steep side again the exchange rate didn't help but at £ 39.00 per night for 2 adults, 2 children under 12, car and van it was a lot for what you actually got from the site. Would we go back. Yes. To Le Sougey probably not at peak season and there are now numerous other sites around the lake that may be worth a second look

 Camping “Le Sougey” is a real gem of a site. It is a 4 star 160 pitch campsite located on the west bank of the picturesque Lake Aiguebelette, close to Chambery. This is what I would call a real campers’ campsite. Of the 160 pitches, only 13 are used by a tour operator (Keycamp), 3 are used for the campsite’s own statics and the rest are for those using their own equipment. In addition the campsite also has 8 chalets but these are in a slightly different area.

Camping “Le Sougey” couldn’t be easier to get to. Apart from the last couple of miles it is virtually auto-route all the way from Calais. Leave the A43 at junction 12, at the roundabout take the second exit and drive around the west bank of the lake (the lake will be on your left). After a couple of miles you will see the signpost for Le Sougey pointing left, and you have arrived. The reception staff are very friendly and speak excellent English. They will give you an electronic key for the barrier (10 euro deposit), and a hand-drawn map of the site showing you how to get to your pitch. The campsite roads are quite narrow so you need to be extra careful especially whilst towing.

With only a couple of exceptions, all the pitches on this site are either large or obscenely large. They are massive. Each pitch is divided by a low hedge and they are generally reasonably private. Most pitches seem to be part grass and part shingle. There are plenty of flowering plants and trees on site. These not only look good but also provide some shade on most pitches at some time during the day. It’s not all good news though. The campsite is situated on a hill and most of the pitches do slope to some degree or another. The pitches on the main part of the hill are terraced but even these slope a bit. Also, although the pitches are huge, a lot of them are long and narrow, and most have their electricity and water points (where applicable) at the front of the pitch. This means that you may not have too much choice where you setup your equipment. In our case we needed to be close to the water point and our pitch was too narrow to swing the caravan through 90 degrees. It was still a really good pitch, though. The site is generally well sheltered, however, some road noise can be heard from some pitches.

The campsite does not have wifi but we found that we got good 3g reception from our pitch using our Vodafone 3g dongle.

The campsite layout has been well thought out. They have planned in a number of large walkways throughout the site, so it is possible to get from/to most points of the campsite without walking along the roads (really safe for kids). These walkways open out to larger areas where there is plenty of room to play away from the caravans. The campsite also has their children’s play equipment in one of these areas.



The campsite has two identical toilet blocks on site. These consist of three long buildings which are positioned to form the outline of a triangle with a courtyard area in the middle. One of the buildings contains the showers (all unisex). Washing up sinks are on the end of this building under cover. The second building contains the toilets (all UK style with seats). Ladies start on the left and work right, Gents start on the right and work left, and they meet somewhere in the middle. There is no dividing wall between the Ladies and Gents toilets. The chemical disposal point is just outside this building. The third building contains more showers, sinks in cubicles, and the laundry facilities. There is also a freezer in the laundry for campers use. All facilities are kept very clean.

There are not too many other facilities on site, other than a boules pitch, volley ball pitch, two table tennis tables and a tv room (which seemed to be used mainly for the site’s kids’ club). There are very few British on site and most of the entertainment is aimed at a French and Dutch audience.

There is also a shop, a restaurant, and bar. These are situated just outside the site and are used by the public as well as site clientele. The shop is quite small but does stock the essentials, although they didn’t sell fresh pasteurised milk. The bar and restaurant overlook the lake and are excellent. The food is a good quality and reasonably priced compared to other restaurants on the lake, and the staff are really friendly. There is also a limited takeaway service from the restaurant, mainly chips and pizzas.

The campsite does not have its own swimming pool, however, there is a lakeside beach at Le Sougey which is open to the public for 2 euros per day. Campsite clientele get a free pass for their duration on site. This is a lovely area, with shaded grass, a sandy beach, a safe bathing area and a small shop for ice creams and drinks. It is possible to hire canoes and pedalos here. The water in the lake was quite warm when we were here, certainly much warmer than some swimming pools we have been in. It can get busy in peak season.

Camping “Le Sougey” really is in an excellent position scenery wise. The only problem with where it’s located is that if you want to travel east (say to visit Chambery, Lake Annecy, or the Alps for example) you really have little choice but to use the auto-route to get through the mountain. The cheapest you can do this for is 1 euro 50 cents each way to get you to the Chambery exit. The alternative is a very long route along small country roads over the hills. Luckily the closest hypermarkets (Super you and Intermarche) are both at Le-Pont-de-Beauvoisin (a short drive in a south westerly direction). It is also a reasonable sized town for other shopping and is quite picturesque. The closest supermarket to the site is a Spar shop in Novalaise which is a few miles north of the site. Fuel can also be obtained here.

The appeal of this area is the scenery. We like walking and the tourist information office at Lepin-le-Lac has a pack of local walks with English translations. There are plenty of sights to see around Lake Aiguebelette. Annecy is a good day out and a visit to the Alps is a must. We went to Pralognan-la-Vanoise which is a fair distance away but spectacular when you get there and well worth the journey. We didn’t do too many paying attractions – a boat trip around Lake Annecy, a visit to Les Gorges du Fier (near Lovagny – they have attached a walkway to the side of the gorge), and Les Jardins Secrets (near Vaulx – the owners have converted an old farmstead into a living work of art). We didn’t go but there is also a theme park (Parc Walibi) around 15 miles from the site which may appeal to families.

We stayed almost 3 weeks at Le Sougey and would have been happy to stay longer. And the best bit. It wasn’t expensive. We had one of their Grand Confort pitches (electricity, water, drainage) and it cost us around £22 per night. Fantastic value!
