Camping in France
Easy to get to, but a great way to ‘get away from it all’ camping in France is the perfect European destination giving many campers their first taste of camping abroad.
You’ll find the climate is nearly always ideal in the summer months; sunny and warm, but not unpleasantly hot.
France has around 3,500km of coastline which includes long sandy beaches, hidden bays and coves and charming fishing ports.
Venture inland and you’ll find mountains and alpine resorts, lush countryside, small unspoilt villages and bustling character towns.
Children will love experiencing the intriguingly different but pleasingly familiar French culture, and you’ll enjoy the challenge of seeing just how much you can remember from your school French lessons.
The great news is that the French love camping. This means that wherever you go, you’ll have more campsites to choose from than you would in the UK. In addition, the sites are equipped with a wider range of facilities.
From the poppy fields of Picardy to the mountains of the French Alps to the sandy beaches of the Vendee, with such a variety of options to choose from, you’re bound to have a perfect time camping in France.
Within this section we want to give you a flavour of what you can expect to experience in each French region.
