Camping Holidays in France

With absolutely thousands of campsites in France, there are so many different ones to choose from, and whether you have your own tent, are touring with a caravan or a motor home, the list is endless.

Most places will be able to provide hook ups for electricity plus many other facilities and on some sites rather just touring, you can even hire out the caravans, chalets or mobile homes, but whatever you decide is best for you, this is a great way of touring through France.

Camping Holidays in France

In fact with over 11,000! Campsites in France with lots of different facilities available you will be spoilt for choice.

There are a vast amount of campsites with lots of facilities, which you will find are rated with stars.  And at these camp sites they are rated in a very similar way to that of hotels, so the more stars that a campsite has, the better equipped it will be, although inevitably the more expensive it will be, especially in certain areas of France.

A camping site with one star is basic and there is no where near as many these days, due to competition from other sites, whereas a two star site is rated for comfort and has some good amenities.

The three star and four star campsites are of a very high standard, not only for the amenities and facilities they have to offer, but also for the quality of these facilities.  For example, on a four star site you will often find top class restaurants that are even frequented by the locals for their phenomenal French cuisine, but also complete pool complexes and evening entertainment as a regular occurrence.

But apart from the typical camping sites available, you can also find places to pitch such as camping on farms, but lots of these do not have a wide range of facilities available.  In fact some are so basic you will need to have all of your own facilities or they may just about have a toilet and hot shower for you to use.  But please do remember that it is only in authorised locations that you are able to camp and not in places such as woods.

Most people think of camping as purely a summer activity, but for an extremely reasonable holiday, which can be as low as 50 to 60 percent less in cost, you can go camping in the low season.  And dependant upon the area of France you wish to go to, some campsites are even open all year round and still even have facilities such as swimming available.

France can therefore offer you freedom and flexibility, whether you wish to stay in one place for the duration of your holiday, or indeed if you wish to go on a touring holiday by hopping from camping site to campsite.  This type of holiday can offer you everything from excitement and family holiday fun by the coast, through to the more sedate holiday staying in the grounds of chateaux in rolling countryside.
