Finding a good quality campsite in France used to be a bit of a lottery, what with the proliferation of Turkish toilets and a somewhat lax approach to cleanliness, but happily, standards have improved immeasurably in recent years – although some truly dreadful sites do remain! A lot of French campsites are now part of campsite groups such as Castel or Yelloh!, which
does provide some level of reassurance, although in our experience, we have found that standards can vary considerably within the same holiday group.
Which of course is where we (and you) come in, to provide the most up-to-date reviews of the campsites in France that you have visited.
The star rating system for campsites is based on what facilities the site offers, so give no real indication of quality.
At one time, pretty much every town or village in France had a Municipal campsite, although many have now fallen into disrepute. Some good examples do exist though, such as Camping Municipale de Troyes, which has had a new input of energy from the young Dutch managers.
During the peak French summer holiday period from mid-July to mid-August, campsites can get very busy, so worth avoiding if at all possible. If you must go during this period, booking is essential.
While the French motorway ‘Aires’ might seem like a nice quiet spot for an overnight stop in your caravan, this should be avoided, as thieves target them, and there have been various reports of them attacking campers in order to relive them of their vehicle.
opefully we’re not being too patriotic in saying that campsites in the UK are some of the best in the world, with a huge variety of sites ranging from the almost ‘holiday camp’ types in the major tourist spots, to the simple facilities offered by some of the ‘Certified Locations’ affiliated with the camping and caravanning organisations. And now of course we have Glamping
– offering such luxuries as Four-Poster beds in Yurts, Log Cabins, Romany Caravans, Tee-Pees and even Vintage American Airstream trailers. Another type of campsite also gaining popularity are exclusive-use campsites
where, you guessed it, you have the whole of the (small) campsite all to yourselves!
