Why choose a 4-star campsite for a family holiday in France?
Holidaying in France is a treat for the whole family. The ease of travel across the border has made it a top camping destination for families and couples alike. Here are a few reasons to choose France for your next family camping trip.
Ease of travel
Pack up your camper van or tent and head down south to start your journey across the English Channel to France. You can be tucked into your sleeping bag by nightfall.
Explore the French cuisine
We all love trying new recipes, and France is world renowned for delicate pastries, crusty bread and smooth cheeses. Stop at one of the many local producers where you can taste-test the wares.
Learn the lingo
Preparing for a family holiday is almost as much fun as going on one. Start learning some basic French before your trip, then test yourselves in the local shops when you arrive.
Visit some of the French cultural centres
Culture abounds in France, so soak up some of the history of this great nation by visiting one of the many art and history museums. If you’re staying close to Paris, no trip is complete without a walk around the Louvre.
Entertainment on your doorstep
With no need to leave the site, a 4-star campsite with a waterpark is an easy choice. Search for a campsite with swimming pools, Jacuzzis and spas for a really ‘splashing’ holiday.
Take a day trip to Disneyland
Booking a camping holiday in France close to Paris puts you in the perfect spot to visit your heroes, Minnie and Mickey Mouse. Make it a holiday to remember and be sure to stay for the finale fireworks that finish the day.
Life is a beach
With so many campsites close to beaches in France, you will be spoilt for choice. Bring your bucket and spade and check into a site close to the Mediterranean, where the calm sea current is safer for little ones to splash about in.
Freedom to choose
Camping offers an autonomy not found on traditional package holidays. Without the constraints of set mealtimes or minimum stays, you can explore France under your own steam and at your own pace.
The joys of family camping holidays
Camping holidays are like no others. Sleep under the stars, breathe in the fresh French air and enjoy getting away from the daily grind.
Bring your own pillow and supplies
Unlike staying in a hotel or B&B, self-drive camping in France allows you the option of bringing plenty of luggage, including your own familiar bedding and even teabags.
Make new friends
There is nothing quite like getting to know your neighbours, and camping allows you to meet up with like-minded families. Join your new friends for a kick-about with a ball or an impromptu cricket game in one of the campsite’s green areas.
Spend quality offline time together
We all know that screen time is unhealthy for our relationships, but choosing a back-to-basics camping holiday helps us to switch off and reconnect with our loved ones.
Get on your bike
Feel inspired by the annual Tour de France and bring the family bikes or hire some from our 4-star campsites to explore the local area. Follow part of the Tour itself by booking into a site on the coast near Bordeaux.
Outdoor sports facilities
French 4-star campsites with a waterpark
will not only offer on-site swimming facilities, but a wealth of other activities may also be available. This could include the likes of archery, horse riding, organised sports, golf and more. If you’re looking for some other options on your camping holiday, be sure to check out our 3-star
