5 Idyllic Camping Holiday Spots In Northern France

Camping on the continent has never been more popular among families, couples and groups of all sizes. Now more than ever, travellers to France are beginning to explore considerably further afield than the most obvious city centre tourist destinations, discovering a side of the country that’s genuinely beyond compare.

Over recent years, France has earned a well-deserved reputation for being perhaps the single most attractive, appealing and accessible country in the whole of Europe for idyllic camping holidays. Indeed, the classic summer camping holiday in Northern France has been making enormous waves not only among British families, but families spanning the entire continent.

So for those planning a trip to France in the near future tent-in-tow, here’s a quick rundown of five of the most wonderful camping holiday spots in the country:

  1. BrittanyAlways top of the table and for dozens of very valid reasons, Brittany ticks all the right camping boxes in spades. An absolutely beautiful region of France boasting everything from glorious countryside to classic French villages and the most beautiful beaches imaginable, the unique charm of Brittany is genuinely intoxicating. Les Druides and Village Port de Plaisance boast some of the most fantastic camp sites in the region, along with possibly the most abundant, accessible and enjoyable family chalet camping holidays in France.

  2. Normandy, OrchardSecond only to Brittany is the glorious camping mecca that is Normandy, where extraordinary natural beauty and wonderfully important historic sites await at every turn. A fabulous choice for families, Orchard is world-renowned for being spectacularly clean, safe and well-maintained in general, while at the same time boasting a world of entertainment options and amenities. L’Etang de Haizes camping site comes particularly highly recommended.

  3. Vendee, FranceDomaine Les Moulins at Ile De Noirmoutier never fails to rank consistently up there with the very best camp sites in the whole country – Vendee as a whole being a mecca for those in search of true tranquillity and relaxation. The natural beauty of the region has to be seen to be believed, though suffice to say opens up a world of exploration and adventure opportunities for families.

  4. Guines, Chateau Camping de la Bien AssiseIf you’re on the lookout for the kind of world-class camp site you’ll barely have to leave throughout your whole trip to have the time of your life, you’ll find it right here. This genuinely impressive resort is absolutely bursting at the seams with fantastic amenities and facilities, along with an expanse of gorgeous green surroundings to really round off what’s every bit the quintessentially French camping experience. For a weekend, a week, a month or even a year, running out of things to do here just isn’t an option.

  5. Jablines, Camping Base de JablinesLast but not least, one of the very best things about this particular camping site is the way in which it is not only a fantastic place in its own right, but is also located conveniently close to Paris. As such, to plan a holiday here is to enjoy the very best of both worlds – the wonderful experience of the French countryside coupled with an unforgettable visit to one of the world’s most beautiful and iconic cities.
