Alan Rogers Review

l’Ile des Barrats is a delightful neat, tidy, small and tranquil site. It is within easy walking distance of the beautiful town of Chamonix, although there are bus and train services close by if needed. There are 48 slightly sloping, grassy pitches, all for touring, mostly separated by small hedges and a variety of trees that offer some shade. All have electricity (5-10A) and 32 have water and drainage. This is an ideal site for those wishing to roam the mountain trails and for those seeking a peaceful and relaxing holiday in a most superb setting. There are four quality chalets available to rent. No twin-axle caravans.

l’Ile de Barrats is run by the third generation of a very friendly family who speak good English. It is surrounded by magnificent mountains with views over the Mont Blanc Range and the Aiguille de Midi. In summer, the mountain flowers are second to none. There are several cable cars and chair lifts close by which operate during the summer high season giving access to Alpine walks, ranging from the casual stroll to the full mountain hike. Switzerland and Italy are easily accessible via the Col de la Forclaz mountain pass and the Mont Blanc Tunnel.


A modern, clean toilet block offers all necessary facilities, including those for disabled visitors. Covered picnic area with table and benches, ideal for those with small tents. Motorcaravan services. Store room for mountaineers. Mobile shop in July/Aug. No organised activities. WiFi (charged).
