Camping is one of the most popular holidays in France. There’s so much variety for where to go, where to stay and accommodation. All you need to do, is figure out what you want from your camping holiday.

Want to stay in a tent? Well there’s masses to choose, you can take your own and pitch up at any number of campsites. Or you can rent one at a campsite and they range from just a couple of rooms to truly fabulous. Tents with all mod cons or even exotic yurts are available.

How about a mobile home? If you’ve got really young children, you might prefer to have a few more home comforts and security against poor weather. There’s a vast range of styles available including mobile homes with bathrooms, even hot tubs on private terraces and their own pools! Or you can take your own campervan/caravan.

There are prices to suit all, from great value to glamping, across all areas of France.
