Everyone’s camping needs differ, depending usually on numbers and ages of kids, whether going with other families, preference of seaside over inland and more besides. We have lisited some of our resorts to give you an idea of where and what type of camping holiday might suit you.
Brittany is easily accessible whether you choose to take your own car on the ferry or fly, Parc Chateau des Ormes is set in 250 acres of parkland and woodland. The accommodation ranges from supertents to a variety of mobile homes to tree and lake houses.
The resort is on the lively end of the spectrum with activities for all the kids and fishing, golf horse riding. In the evenings there are discos for all ages.
If less lively and more relaxing is more in your line, then Parc Les Mouettes, just 10 miles from Roscoff may be for you. Overlooking the Atlantic on the Breton coast, it has a huge pool with water chutes and slides, as well as a covered pool. It is also highly recommended for walking.
Venturing further down the western coast brings us to the Vendée, where again you are offered the choice of coastal or parkland, lively or more relaxing resorts. If it’s action and adventure, try St Julien-des-Landes, in a lush countryside setting, but with the advantage of being just 15mins from the beach.
If you wish to explore further north, then have a look at the resorts of Normandy.
Virtually guaranteed sunshine – if that’s your priority then the Mediterranean may be the place for you. Though a long haul if you’re bringing your own car, it gives not only endless sandy beaches, but access into the Pyrenees and onto Spain for day trips should you wish.
Also home to the largest wine producing area in France, Langedouc/Roussillon is easily accessed via Perpignan, Carcassone, Toulouse and Gerona airports, with typically excellent French roads to the resorts of Canet or Argeles-sur-Mer.
