France boasts a stunning coastline, from the glamorous beaches of the French Riviera to world-class surf beaches along the Atlantic. Find sheltered coves for paddling with kids, big wave surfing in Hossegor and long stretches of sand along the southwest coastline that extend all the way to the Spanish border.
One of the best ways to discover a new place is by taking a tour run by a knowledgeable local guide. Whether you’re interested in art and architecture or historical sites, there is a wide range of guided tours on foot or by bike. Book a food tour for an introduction to the vibrant culinary scene or a bus tour through the wine regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy.

Romantics at heart will adore visiting fairytale castles and stately manor houses in the French countryside, surrounded by manicured hedges and elaborate topiaries. The stunning Château de Chantilly is close to Paris, while Château de Chenonceau and Château de Chambord are situated in the Loire Valley.
Take a drive from your campsite to see extraordinary UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Highlights include prehistoric caves in the Ardèche and Vézère Valley, the Roman aqueduct of Pont du Gard and the historic fortified city of Carcassonne. Bordeaux, Port of the Moon and the banks of the Seine have also been recognised for their unique cultural heritage.
Awaken your imagination at the countless galleries and museums in France. Visit the Louvre, Musée d’Orsay and Centre Pompidou in Paris, which feature some of the largest collections of Impressionist paintings, as well as modern art and performance spaces. There are also many mansions with unique collections.
With a focus on local produce, careful dish selection and food and wine pairings, French gastronomy is world-renowned. Every region has its specialities and the French multi-course gastronomic meal has been added to UNESCO’s Lists of Intangible Cultural Heritage. Dine at neighbourhood bistros with the locals or treat yourself to a meal at a Michelin-starred restaurant near your campsite.
