Although in the summer holidays you may have to pre-book to get a
pitch at some of the more popular French
campsites, especially in places like Brittany, which is one of the most popular
camping and touring areas in France, there are many to choose from and you can often just
pull up and arrange an overnight stay, or if you want to see the sights in a specific
area, then you could always book a whole weeks holiday on a particular caravan site before
you move on to your next adventure in France.
But with the facilities available on lots of camping
sites in France not including the basics, you may find that you just wish to stay put
and enjoy what is on offer, such as swimming, tennis, fishing, the bar and restaurant,
clubs with entertainment, children's playgrounds and much, much more.
Overall, these caravan and camping sites are of excellent quality and make an ideal family
holiday where the children are very well catered for but these can range in price quite
dramatically, for example, if you want to be situated near the Cote D'Azur and the French
Riviera, the cost for a pitch can be anything up to four times that of a touring site in
Normandy! So it is always a good idea to check out a few sites in different areas
before you go on your holiday, to make sure that you will still have enough spending money
for the family excursions and souvenirs as well!!
However, if you would rather have peace and tranquillity whilst on holiday in your caravan
or motor home, then there are also numerous sites which offer the more mature family just
that, and you can find some beautiful settings that range from lakeside views to being
situated in a forest where you can watch the wildlife roaming, or even staying in the
grounds of a French Chateau and the choice is immense.
Yet even if you do not own your own caravan or motor home, although it will add to the
cost of your holiday, you can still enjoy a touring holiday
in France with freedom by hiring one for a week or two, which is also a good idea to
see if you will end up enjoying the whole experience of touring in France, before
investing your hard earned money on the purchase of a caravan or motorhome.
