Camping in France

Topping the list for the most visited country in the world, France is a land made for exploring and camping in France is the perfect way to see the best of the country. Covering more than twice the area of the UK, but with roughly the same population, there’s masses of space for everyone. With famous mountains, stunning coastline, great rivers and pretty forests and meadows; France is an outdoor paradise, making it the perfect country for camping.

Camping Holidays in France

France is a great camping holiday destination for families, not least because it’s so easy to get to. You can fly there easily and cheaply with budget airlines such as Easyjet and Ryanair, or take the Eurostar to a multitude of destinations. And, if you want to take the car there are ferries or the Eurotunnel.

Camping Destinations in France

There are marked regional identities across France, alongside the different terrains, meaning that you can take in a variety of different holidays in one country. But wherever you go, you are guaranteed leisurely lunches, croissants and coffee, beautiful weather and gorgeous countryside – everyone likes camping in France!

Camping in Côte-d’Azur

Enjoy the timeless glamour and stunning sandy beaches of the Côte-d’Azur, where the mountains drop down to the sea in famous locations such as St Tropez and Nice. Or wander into Provence, with its rocky landscapes, endless lavender fields and the cultural hubs of Arles, Avignon and Aix. If you prefer the dramatic Atlantic Ocean, make sure to visit the Aquitaine Coast, which includes the iconic towns of Cap Ferret and Biarritz. This is the coastline for adventurous families!

Camping in the North of France

The North of France, with Brittany and Normandy, is awash with history from World War II and the sublime rock-island abbey of Mont-Saint-Michel. Moving inland we come, of course, to Paris. And nearby is one of the ultimate meccas for children in the form of Disneyland Paris!

And these are only a few of the wonderful regions of France. With so much to do and see, staying at a campsite makes perfect sense in order to take full advantage of your surroundings. France is served by a number of great companies, such as Canvas Holidays, Eurocamp and Alfresco.
