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.

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.

Camping holidays in France are a breeze because 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, camping sites in France are equipped with a wider range of facilities. On French campsites children will love experiencing the intriguingly different but pleasingly familiar culture, and you’ll enjoy the challenge of seeing just how much you can remember from your school French lessons.

From the poppy fields of Picardy, to the mountains of the French Alps, to the sandy beaches of the Vendée, with such a variety of options to choose from, you’re bound to have a perfect time camping in France.
