Highlights of visiting a campsite in winter 

Camping in winter is a unique experience with many activities you might not be able to enjoy the rest of the year.

Events in the winter in France

There are many seasonal events and festivities that take place in the winter in France. Visit the La Folie des Plantes in Nantes, one of the most important horticultural exhibitions; the Festival of Lights, a unique Lyonnaise tradition; or the Nice Carnival, one of the world’s major carnival events.

Try a winter sport

With various mountain ranges, there are a lot of winter sports to try in France. Choose to visit a campsite in the winter located near the Pyrenees to learn how to ski or snowboard. Or go ice-skating on one of the seasonal ice rinks – the ultimate being the one under the Eiffel Tower, which is open from mid-December to mid-February.

Visit historical buildings and cultural sites

Most of the major sights and attractions in France are open all year round. Book a campsite open in winter near Marseille and head inside the famous Maison de la Boule or MuCEM museum, or visit the Old Port and enjoy the beautiful flower market.

Christmas markets

There are a range of Christmas markets in various cities throughout France in the winter months. Select a campsite in Montpellier and visit Les Hivernales de Montpellier, which takes place during November and December each year. Or book a campsite in Toulouse and visit the Christmas market held in the famous Place du Capitole throughout December.

Different nature and landscapes

Enjoy France in the winter and gain a different and unique view of the country. Book a campsite open in winter in Brittany and visit St Malo to see the beautiful Château de St Malo. Or take a trip to Josselin, which overlooks the River Oust and is a picture-perfect town in winter.

Enjoy the gastronomy

France is famous for its hearty cuisine, which is all the more enjoyable in the cooler winter months. A soupe à l’oignon or boeuf bourguignon is the perfect choice for a cold day. If you have your eye on a particular restaurant, you are a lot more likely to get in without a booking during the off-peak season.

Mediterranean warmth

While it can be cool, the winter in France is not too cold compared to other countries in Europe. Visit the south of France and enjoy warm and sunny days and cooler nights. Book a campsite in Gironde, in the southwest of France, and enjoy walks by the sea all year round.

Accommodation types suitable for winter

Visiting a campsite doesn’t necessarily mean pitching a tent. Take advantage of a range of accommodation offers available to rent on-site, perfect for the winter months. Choose from a mobile home, chalet, lodge, cottage or glamping tent and stay warm and comfortable during the cooler nights.

Benefits of visiting a campsite in winter 

There are many advantages to consider when choosing to book a campsite in the winter months.

Last-minute availability

It can be hard to find time for a holiday, let alone a time when everyone is available. Take advantage of increased availability to book a last-minute camping trip during the winter months. It’s easy to surprise someone or book a trip for a special occasion during the off-peak season.

Peace and quiet

Campsites, monuments, attractions, museums and historical sites are all notably quieter in the winter. Enjoy a peaceful break from the usual fast pace of life and really take the time to enjoy the outdoors. You’ll also save time queuing for attractions and get the best views and pictures of famous sights.

Flexibility

Keep your trip flexible by choosing to visit a campsite during the winter. Plans can sometimes change, especially if you are enjoying a longer road trip or backpacking adventure. By selecting a campsite open in winter, you can rest assured knowing that you will be able to access the campsite when you arrive, even if your schedule changes.

Affordability

Not only are airfares significantly lower in winter, except over the Christmas period, but you can also enjoy reduced rates to enter some attractions and museums. It is a great idea to visit a campsite in winter if you are working to a tighter budget.

Co-ordinate with school holidays

While the longest school holiday takes place in the summer, it is also the busiest and most expensive time to book a trip. Visit a year-round campsite during October half-term or the Christmas break and enjoy a holiday the kids won’t stop talking about.
