Camping en France
sorry cant help with suggestions,Posted 8 years ago
buts heres a good website with locations of campsites in france.
I am currently using it to plot my camping journey from dieppe to portugal.
Four of us are looking to get across to France in August/September for some gentle camping (big tent car-style camping), eating food, drinking and beaches etc. The girls aren't big bikers so we're not taking bikes with us.
We don't really have much of an agenda yet, we have an entire week (sat-sun) to play with, anyone have any experiences or suggestions they would share?Posted 8 years agoPaulioSubscriber
Guillestre in the Hautes Alpes region (a couple of days easy driving from Calais/Dunkirk) is a lovely place to stay. The camp site run by Monsieur Pascale is just above the main town, is fairly basic (comfortabe though, not primitive) and is really nice and relaxed.
It's over 1000m up, near loads of lovely Alpine walks, St Veran (highest permanently populated place in Europe) and the town itself has good restaurants and a market.
Beware – there are loads of trail heads just up the road, got me chomping at the bit. I'm sure you could hire a bike. You can head to the South coast pretty easily once you've had enough of the alps too.Posted 8 years agoJon TaylorSubscriber
Thanks for your suggestions so far. Plenty of ideas.
We don't have much of an idea where to go – this all came about because our planned stay in the Alps fell through when the development/management company folded. We then wanted something cheap-ish and didn't want to limit ourself to the UK.
I guess we'll get drawn where the best combinations of countryside and beaches are. West coast for waves? South and Alps for hills?Posted 8 years ago
