How we all long for the great outdoors! Now it’s finally time to start planning and packing for that family holiday you’ve all been dreaming of. Swap the city or dreary old suburbia for the beautiful French countryside.
Nothing is more important and invigorating than family time away together. Kids just love spending time outdoors, so book to stay in a 3-star campsite in the countryside for a great active holiday. Time will fly by with your family, and you’ll soon be making precious memories to treasure. Whether you have your own campervan and camping kit or wish to take advantage of the on-site accommodation, you’ll find a wealth of sites around France to choose from.
Experience the togetherness of a camping holiday with loved ones and create unforgettable memories.
Escape to the sea, mountains or countryside....Have a break and breathe again!
A splash in the pool with the kids. A sunset on the beach. Rediscover the fun and beauty in the simple things in life.
Surrounding your 3-star campsite you will find a host of opportunities for memorable days out with the family.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
