One of the finest ways to get away for a family holiday is to go camping in France. There are some wonderful campsites there and for UK holidaymakers the relatively short travelling distance makes it an easy option as well.
If you are tempted to explore the charms of the French countryside or coast then below you will find some tips to let you do it in style.
Choose the Right Site
The first point you need to consider is where you will go. With so many different campsites in such a wide variety of settings this might seem like an extremely difficult task. Perhaps you would prefer to start the process of choosing by thinking about which region of the country most appeals to you. By simply spending an hour or so on the internet in a reputable website you can come across a variety of options to choose from. For example, if you want to be within reach of Paris as well as a host of other family attractions then somewhere like La Croix du Vieux Pont is sure to appeal to you.
No matter where you go you will find it a lot easier to enjoy your time if you plan in advance. This is especially important if you are going with your family and want to try and cram in as many activities as possible during your stay. You might want to study a map while still at home and see whether you can work out what you would all like to do each day of the trip.
You won’t forget to pack all of the essentials, will you? A modern camping trip to a classy campsite won’t see you left to fend for yourself in the wilds but it is still important that you take everything you need with you. Your first thought here should be about the facilities on offer at the place you are going to be staying. A lot of the best camping grounds have swimming pools and sports facilities, so you will need to prepare for these and take the right clothes along with you. Apart from this, you will want to pack for anything else you are planning to do while you are there and also take along some entertainment to keep the kids amused during the trip.
Pick the Right Time of Year
Finally, a big decision to be made is around the time of year you go. Summer is when you are likely to find more sunshine, more fellow tourists and higher prices. Going off season can be a big money saver if you don’t miss getting poorer weather and possibly finding that some of the local facilities are closed.
