Considering France is only about thirty miles off the coast of the United Kingdom, it is no wonder that many people head to the close British neighbours. As many people enjoy the world of outdoor life more, camping in France is becoming more popular. With many ferries crossing the channel too, taking the car and caravan makes the trip itself simple.
All throughout France, there are wonderful camping sites. All are well looked after and maintained, whilst the facilities in the majority are excellent and all are good. From north to south and east to west, it really is not hard to find something suitable.
Most sites are caravan friendly too, with more than enough electricity points to keep those all important home comforts up and running. Allowing for a semi permanent base to relax in helps make a holiday go all the more smoother of course, so it is good to know there are reliable amenities to help with this.
The staff on site when camping in France could not be more helpful either. Whilst it is always good to at least try to converse in the local language, English is widely spoken. If you can though, it is always nice to try; France is the host country after all and relationships will be all the better just for taking a little time.
When camping in France, particularly with a caravan, one of the joys is being able to explore the diversity that the wonderful country has. The country is synonymous with good food and wine of course, so it is only right that these should be savoured at any given opportunity.
With a caravan, there are no delays in setting up camp. You arrive, announce your arrival and pay any fees due and you are good to go. Unhitching the car takes no time at all, and then you out in the country ready to explore the delights that the region has to offer.

Fees are fairly standard, but one of the beautiful things about camping and going it alone as it were are the cheap prices of everything. Whilst on site shops at each of the sites will have well stocked shops with friendly and helpful staff, many are very close to villages and towns for that authentic feel.
Families and groups are welcome in most places, which really makes exploring the country as straight forward as it possibly could be. In a campsite too, there is always an atmosphere to take part in. While there is more than enough space given over to each pitch, the proximity of neighbours allows for any help as needed and is the foundation for building excellent friendships.
Camping in France is quite simply a quite wonderful thing to do. Whether relaxing in the north, enjoying the find foods and wines that the valleys bring, or soaking up the sun in the south of the country. With many sites up against the Pyrenees too, it makes for a great summer, winter or spring time destination.
