A campsite in the middle of nature, but not isolated…

When you’re on a campsite, you like to be close to nature… And you also like to have all the shops and services of a real town… The Iscle de Prelles campsite successfully meets this difficult compromise…

5 km away, Briançon, 12 000 inhabitants, sub-prefecture of the Hautes Alpes


It is hard to believe, when you are in the 4 hectare park of the campsite, in the middle of 533 birch trees, pines and larches, when you can see a 360° view of the mountains, hear the Durance river flowing and see the squirrels moving from tree to tree, that a town of 12,000 inhabitants can be reached in 5 minutes by car!

The icing on the cake is that this town is a Unesco World Heritage Site!

But here we focus on the practical aspects of Briançon, its shops and services. For its many tourist attractions, there is a dedicated page, and it is here.



All the shops for everyday life

With all that there is to do in and around the campsite, between the numerous activities of Serre Chevalier and the Pays des Ecrins, the incredible hikes and other tourist attractions of the different valleys that surround us, whether you are staying on a pitch or in a rental, you will still have to think about going shopping!

No need to panic! As far as shops are concerned, you will have the choice between the large national brands which are grouped together in the nearby suburbs, the boutiques and shops which create the animation of the town centre, and the craftsmen and small local producers that you will come across at the markets…

For excellent meat and delicious charcuterie, you can walk to Prelles, to the Marcellin butcher’s shop, which has been passing on its know-how for several generations. For an extravagant choice of cheeses, you can meet one of the many cheese makers or go directly to the local producers.

For your other food shopping, between Carrefour, Leclerc and Géant Casino, you won’t have to change your habits! You don’t need to go all the way to Briançon, as Lidl is less than 2 km from the campsite.

If you are looking for a sports shop, you will be spoilt for choice! Between Decathlon, Intersport and the 10 or so small shops and local chains, you will have no trouble finding hiking boots, technical clothing, a gas stove or bike hire.

Finally, if you’re looking for something you don’t need, you’ll find it in Gifi, Action or Noz. There is no reason to look for a DIY shop, but if you did, you would find something you like in Bricorama or l’Entrepôt du Bricolage.




Restaurants for all tastes

It is difficult not to start this paragraph without mentioning the snack bar of the Iscle de Prelles! We are expecting many of you, in July and August, to enjoy a simple but copious and tasty menu, prepared “home-made” with regional products…

That said, we won’t hold it against you if you frequent one of the many restaurants in Briançon! As everywhere, there is good and not so good, and you have to beware of the tourist traps! Between the traditional restaurants which will propose you a raclette, a fondue or a tartiflette, the pizzerias, the Chinese and Japanese restaurants, the brasseries or even the 2 gastronomic restaurants present in the Michelin guide, the offer in terms of catering is very important, even plethoric, and no doubt you will find your happiness…

Services for all needs, and all problems!

A small or big problem? You will find a doctor or a pharmacist. And if it’s more serious, the Briançon hospital will take care of you! I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that the mountains, as marvellous and grandiose as they are, are a natural territory that it is useless to try to tame. It is therefore necessary to know how to appreciate the dangers, especially the weather. Taking pleasure in the mountains also means being well prepared and well equipped…

A mechanical problem? You can call on one of the Briançon garages. If the repair is not immediate, you can take advantage of the large bus network that serves the Serre Chevalier and Ecrins valleys. And if your destination is specific, you will have no trouble finding a taxi…

All the administrative services have of course a branch in Briançon, but no need to go into details, let’s assume that you won’t need them!
