If you have never been to France, the one thing you will discover when you get there, is that you can experience the country in many different ways. All of them will bring you a completely unique experience. Today, we are looking at the three faces of camping in France, which are: by the coast, in the countryside and in the mountains. Then, you can decide which one is for you!
- What Camping offers You
If you choose to visit Lille (North) or Marseille (South), you will not go back to your home country with the same idea of what France is. Although it doesn’t have the size of America, its flavours are almost as diverse, in its various regions. Going to France with Vacanceselect will also enable you to experience different holidays, while in the same region. Before we tell you a little bit about the various experiences according to location, here is what you should know about camping in France.
You can choose to stay in a mobile home or in a tent, which are already on site for you. However, it is also possible to get a pitch, where you can bring your own “home”, as a large variety of camp sites offer that possibility. One of the strengths of French camping sites is their offer in terms of services for beauty and wellness. Jacuzzi, spa, thalassotherapy and various beauty treatments are often offered inside the various locations. A large array of food services (bakery, markets, ice cream shop, …) and sports activities (archery, basketball, mini-golf, …) are also available.
- On the Coast
There are three coasts for you to choose from. In the South, you’ll have access to warmer water beaches. You can also visit many of the favourite cities of the country, including Nice, Marseille and Montpellier. Or you can choose the ocean on the left, in luxurious Biarritz or the Northern coast for a bit of history, in Normandy.
- In the Countryside
France is large, so the choice is optimal. Instead of trying to give you a wide panorama, which would take to long, let us suggest a stay in Provence. Between the colours of lavender, the poppies and the sunflowers and the sounds of the cicadas and the bees, you are sure to be mesmerized.
- In the Mountains
There are seven main mountain ranges in France. But the best sites to see are definitely the Alps (East) and the Pyrenees (West). The Mont Blanc in the Alps is the most popular destination.
