Our promise: Reconnecting you with what matters most

Friends and family

Experience the togetherness of a camping holiday with loved ones and create unforgettable memories.

Nature and outdoors

Escape to the sea, mountains or countryside....Have a break and breathe again!

Fun and simplicity

A splash in the pool with the kids. A sunset on the beach. Rediscover the fun and beauty in the simple things in life.

Recommended activities to do near 3-star campsites 

Surrounding your 3-star campsite you will find a host of opportunities for memorable days out with the family.

Take a day trip exploring the region’s waterways and forests

Pack your swimsuits and bring waterproof sandals for the kids, then dive into one of the area’s surrounding rivers or lakes. Become one with nature as you breathe the oxygen-rich air and head off-road into a beautiful woodland such as Landes Forest or trek across the countryside to the Livradois-Forez Regional Natural Park.

Become royalty for a day visiting local heritage sites

France is bursting with historical ruins, castles and landmarks, so enjoy visiting some of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the region. Families love visiting the quirky Mont St Michel in Normandy to take in the wonderful view of France from the top of the hill.

Try a taste of the region

Some of the world’s most highly acclaimed chefs hail from France, but you don’t have to dine in a Michelin-starred restaurant to enjoy the best that the country has to offer. Visit one of the many independent restaurants and bars in the area and fill up on gastronomic delights such as locally produced saucisson and cured pork or the famous Marseilles monkfish.

Fresh markets burst with local wares

Local weekly markets simply buzz with activity and bargains galore. Pick up a holiday memento or some locally grown produce for a truly regional dinner. A vast array of freshly picked fruit and vegetables will be piled up high, so bring a rucksack or basket as you will want to choose them all.

Getting out and about on two wheels

Burn up some energy with the kids by exploring the area by bicycle. France offers miles of dedicated cycle routes known as Voie Verte around the countryside, giving your family a safe and enjoyable ride. If you’re staying near the Dordogne, check out the beautiful Sarlat to Cazoules route that follows the old railway past the Dordogne River. Don’t forget to bring snacks and refreshments, as cycling can be thirsty work.

Life is better with cheese and pastries

Treat the children to the unforgettable experience of popping into a French patisserie or boulangerie to sample the freshly baked wares. Tearing open a croissant and popping in a slice of cheese, cured meat or a dab of jam makes a simple but delicious breakfast or lunch. Once tasted, never forgotten – so you will want to pop back again and again for more!

Life is a beach

3-star campsites close to the sea offer a great contrast in aquatic fun. Leave the swimming pool behind and pack your flip flops and a sun hat, then head off from your accommodation in La Rouillere to the nearby sandy beaches of Pampelonne and Escalet. Or find camping within a short drive of the beach at Argelès and be surrounded by spectacular countryside to explore. Don’t forget the sunscreen and change for ice cream.

Immerse yourselves in French culture

Paris doesn’t have the monopoly on culture, so throughout France you will find many museums and art galleries apart from the Louvre to visit during your stay. Visit the Museum of Contemporary Art in Bordeaux or explore the charming historical castles of Château de Chantilly and Château de Flers in the north of France. Don’t forget your camera and a bag to carry home your souvenirs.

 

Benefits of staying at 3-star campsites

Throwing off the daily grind and relaxing on a camping trip allows you to re-connect as a family, creating a lasting bond of shared memories.

Time to go offline

Turn off the devices and enjoy the pure simplicity of campsite life. Enjoy spending time as a family, connecting not over the internet but with each other. Pack some board games or a set of charades to add a bit of campsite fun.

Be at one with nature

As good for the body as they are for the soul, camping holidays invigorate the senses. Fill your lungs with fresh air as you stride out exploring or perform outdoor yoga. Lie back in the evening on a blanket and stargaze with the ones you love.

Embracing the local culture

Travel abroad gives you the opportunity to embrace another way of life. Once off site, you will find a huge range of cultural activities and sights to discover, including arts and drama performances, cookery and art classes.

Safe and fun environments with organised activities

Holidaying at 3-star campsites means you will never be lost for something to do. Choose from a host of safe activities including swimming with lifeguards in attendance, sports events, fitness lessons and fun kids’ sessions.

A holiday to remember – make new friends

You arrive as one family and can leave as part of a bigger one. Spending time with your neighbouring holidaymakers can become a habit as many families enjoy returning to the same camp year after year.

If you fancy a little luxury this year, be sure to check out our 4-star and 5-star French campsites too.

Make this year’s holiday the best yet – start planning your next family break to a campsite in France today!
