Camping Domaine de Chalain****

Domaine de Chalain - Doucier

Overview of Domaine de Chalain

Domaine de Chalain is a long-time Canvas favourite. Beautifully set beside a lake of shimmering water with a backdrop of steep hills, this large and lively site is the ideal location for an active family holiday.

There is a superb pool complex, with outdoor and indoor pools, water slides (6yrs+ only), waterfalls and rapids. In high season campers can enjoy an excellent range of sporting facilities, complemented by a first-rate entertainment programme. Lakeside, you can hire a pedalo or canoe or enjoy a cooling swim, before soaking up the sun on the shore. Keen fishermen can indulge in a spot of lake fishing. 

Local area

Domaine de Chalain is situated on the southern banks of Lac de Chalain, a two-mile drive from the village of Doucier, with its small selection of bars and restaurants. Fifteen miles away is the busy town of Lons-le-Saunier, once a Roman Salt town, where you will find a good range of amenities. The site has direct access to a lakeside beach and a good range of watersports.

The Grottes de Moidons are caves with spectacular stalactites and stalagmites, highlighted by a fantastic sound and light show. Take a 15 mile sightseeing trip on the Ste Claude railway from Morez (23mls). The train passes over numerous viaducts and through breathtaking scenery before arriving in Morbier.
