There are a lot of nice places to go camping in France. By staying in the outdoors, you get to save money rather than staying in a hotel.
One camp ground situated inside a 50 hectare manor is the Le Val de Bonnal. Despite the green grassy patches all around, this place is considered to be a heaven for water lovers as they have 4 lakes that allow you to go canoeing, swimming and wind surfing.
If you want to get some exercise, you can hike and visit the village of Bonnal. You will never get bored here because if you run out of things to do, you can check out unique activities organized for visitors.
Another camping ground is the Aluna Vacances in Ard╦che that is near the town of Vallon Pont D'arc. It has a swimming pool with slides for you to cool off. For those that don't want to swim, they can go on a canoeing trip. After dinner, you can sing your heart out at the karaoke, go dancing in the mini disco or sit and watch the live show.
Next is Le Ranc Davaine in Ardeche. As you explore the vast camping ground, you will notice the hidden valleys, majestic rocks and rivers hidden in greenness. If hiking is not your thing, you can have fun and even meet new friends as you go to the aqua gym or participate in sports such as archery, volleyball and tennis.
Who said you can't go camping near the beach? This is possible in France because of two great camping destinations to go to namely Les Sablons in Languedoc-Roussillon and Domaine de la Yole in Languedoc/Roussillon.
Both campsites have a sandy beach so your kids can make a sandcastle while you go out trying the various activities.
You can even do a little shopping as you go inside the various shops and find fruits, vegetables and excellent wine.
If you want a camping site that has the beach on one end and the mountains in another, you should go camping in Les P═cheurs in Cote d'Azur. Because it is so central, you can take a drive in any direction and engage in various activities.
If you happen to go camping in Southern France, you get to enjoy the great scenery, the beaches and the fishing villages which you will not find anywhere else. If you want to do some shopping, you can go to the cities of Cannes, Monaco and St Tropez.
You may even want to take pictures in the canyon of Gorges du Verdon or visit the perfume distilleries. If you are traveling with kids, let them have some fun in the Aquatica inside the Frejus.
For those who want to go camping in the north, Brittany is an ideal place to go as you can see the rugged coastline and rocky coves. Since you can't swim here, go south where there are long stretches of sandy beaches.
As you can see, there are a lot of nice places go to camping in France. You just have to do some research and find out what your family likes to do so you will enjoy your vacation. If you want to get a discount in any of these places, you are advised to book in advance.
Despite the economy I hope you are travelling and enjoying yourself. Until next time, let me know what is on your mind, and how you are doing, O.K.?
