Booking a family holiday is an exciting time – but with so much choice available, why would you pick a child-friendly campsite in France?
These sites are packed with amenities that appeal to families, so you can search for a campsite with an on-site waterpark, kids’ club, family restaurant and playground. Located near to popular beaches and national parks, the campsites are your key to exploring the French way of life.
Bring your own tent or motorhome, or book a self-catering cottage, chalet, caravan or glamping tent and enjoy getting up close to nature and sleeping under the stars.
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.
The family campsites are well located, close to a host of fun activities suitable for the whole family.
Breathe in that fresh country air as you take on the hills and mountains of France. Mont Blanc is a popular choice, where you can stay in a local family campsite by night and explore the surrounding flora and fauna by day. Don’t forget to pack blister plasters if you’re not used to hilly climbs.
A really fun activity as you pass through France is to visit some of the many chateaux. Beautifully restored and ruined castles are dotted around the country and steeped in history. Normandy is famed for its chateaux, including the one at the top of Mont St Michel that inspired the fairy-tale castle in the Rapunzel movie ‘Tangled’.
Add a watery element to your camping holiday by staying at a countryside location near a large lake or river in the Gers countryside near Auch and Toulouse. Canoeing, boat rental, pedaloes, fishing and water skiing are fun activities the whole family can enjoy.
Embrace some real French culture by visiting iconic landmarks. Stand in awe under the incredible engineering of the Eiffel Tower and take a selfie for your social media. Visit the envied art collection at the Louvre and admire the architecture of the Arc de Triomphe in central Paris.
Staying at a child-friendly campsite near Paris puts you within a short drive of the Magic Kingdom. Treat yourselves to a day or two in the wonderful world of Disneyland Paris, where you can meet your cartoon heroes and enjoy the many rides and attractions.
Load up your bike racks or rent family bicycles from your campsite. The whole family will enjoy following the many cycle routes, including roads round the Alps which are used for the annual French cycling competition, the Tour de France.
France is envied the world over for its gastronomy. The range of creamy cheeses, crisp pastries, cured meats, seafood and crusty bread is more than just food – it’s an experience to be savoured. Visit some of the local delicatessens and patisseries close to camp for a picnic to take away.
Choosing to book a stay at a child-friendly campsite close to a beach will add to the holiday fun. Pack your swimmers and a bucket and spade for the little ones. Check into a coastal family campsite such as those at Marseille, Bordeaux or Montpellier.
Choosing a family-friendly campsite holiday in France is easy – add travel dates, set the filters and book online. If you’re struggling for inspiration on where to go, here’s some!
Getting to France by ferry, Eurotunnel train or plane is a breeze. Bring a motorhome or car, or travel light with just a suitcase. Be sure to check your passports will be valid when you travel and confirm any government travel restrictions that may apply before you book.
Sleeping under the stars and getting back to basics allows family life to reset. Choose screen-free bonding time with board games, puzzles, football or ping pong. Team up as a family and challenge your neighbours to an impromptu game of rounders.
French child-friendly campsites offer a fun kids’ club which keeps them busy while you relax or take part in your own activities. Many sites offer amenities such as horse riding, visits to a local farm and organised children’s sports.
There is a whole host of child-friendly activities on the sites, including children’s playgrounds, lifeguard-attended swimming pools, a mini-golf course and a small cinema. Bicycles are available to hire from most child-friendly campsites so they can whizz around camp autonomously.
Self-catering is easy, as the campsites are well located close to local amenities and you’ll find a well-stocked convenience store on site. If you tire of self-catering, dine in the camp restaurant, grab a pizza to take away or visit a local family-friendly restaurant.
