Information & resources about camping in France
Get your camping, mobile home or static caravan holidays here for hoildays in France, Spain, Italy, Holland etc
We are able to offer information & resources for camping holidaymakers going to France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Holland and Denmark in terms of describing what you will find in the camping holiday resorts which are advertised by most of the larger tour operators.
We take a look at the towns and villages where you stay and are able to give a description of them from our point of view which does not always gel with the blurb you read from a holiday brochure.
Where do we obtain this information? Well, all the information about French resorts has been researched by myself (Editor), as well as some other countries in Europe. The rest has been generated by visits by our close family members during their wanderings.
We tell things how they are, warts and all, though to be fair most resorts come out very well indeed.
You may notice that we do not enter into detail about the actual camp sites as that is far too long a job, but we do tell as much as possible about the resorts where they are based.
Please take a look at our new Gardening website.
For drivers we have gleaned information about mileages from most of the northern French ferry ports to the resorts, and if you are not a Sat Nav. user then don't worry because driving and negotiating your way through Europe is a darn sight easier than it is in the UK.
NB: Some resorts in regions such as Languedoc-Roussillon and the South of France show Bilbao as being the nearest port and, though this may be true we have provided an alternative ferry port as the route to Bilbao is extremely expensive and a trip down from Caen is far, far cheaper.
Throughout Europe you will find that the roads are far superior to ours in the UK, and you have the added benefit of having less traffic on them. In France, which is where the majority of driving holidays are taken you rarely have to venture into a large and busy town or city unless you specifically wish to as the French road system bypasses nearly all of these. As you can imagine, this saves an enormous amount of time on a long journey.
For fly/drive holidaymakers we show the nearest airports to the resorts.
You should really only need to use a Sat Nav for going through Paris and/or finding your campsite at the end of your journey.
