A Family Camping Experience In France

Experiencing France for the first time is something a family should do. Touring the main cities and seeing the known landmarks can be quite a memorable experience but what a more exciting one awaits you outside the busy streets of the urban landscape. A family camping experience in France is a great opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors and at the same time get a chance to see France in a whole different light.

The country’s rural landscape, the scenic vineyards, valleys, beaches and mountain landscapes can give your family the perfect holiday memory that will last them a lifetime.

Tip: Buy a sleeping bag which will suit the weather you will be in. Bringing a sub-zero type of sleeping bag to use on a trip in the summer will make you sweat the entire night.

Bringing your whole family to France for a holiday camping trip can be quite tricky. This is especially true when you’re working under a budget. This means looking for various means to shave off the expenses. You need to plan the trip in advance to get discounted airline tickets. The early planning will also help you find a good campsite and will give you some time to book or reserve camp accommodations if needed.

Some campsites in France do require advance bookings especially the more popular ones which have a limit to the number of campers in the site. Nonetheless, there are other smaller and more personal campsites scattered in France so I do believe that you won’t fail in getting a campsite for your family.

Tip: While you may count on Mother Nature to have plenty of wood to stoke your campfire, you may encounter only wet wood that won't burn. It's smart to bring your own wood and make sure it stays in a dry area.

Probably the best way to come about selecting a campsite is to decide on where in France you would actually like to visit. Brittany for example has several great campsites that offer discounted prices for family campers and tourists alike. So you have to talk among yourselves and select an area in France where you want to go.

This is a family trip so it would be best to arrive at a family consensus so the experience becomes more worthwhile and memorable. You don’t want any bickering happening during your vacation so before you set out make sure everyone is happy with the selected place.

Tip: If you're going to be taking your children camping, attend a first-aid course. If you have an accident, you are going to know how to fix the situation before you can get professional medical help.

After you determine where to go, it would be not the best time to finalize the best time to actually fly to France and enjoy a holiday of camping. The months from May to September are usually the open season for campsites in France with July and August being the most ideal time because of the wonderful weather during these two months. You’ll find more entertainment and attractions open in these two months so if you want a quieter vacation for your family you might want to book earlier or even during September.

When you set out to France, be sure to bring your camping gear with you although, some campsites do have camping facilities including tents or similar camping accommodations. So it would be best to ask the campsite for details regarding the facilities and services being offered so you would know the specific camping gear and equipment to bring. If you do opt on a campsite that offers the bare necessities then it is recommended that you bring all your gear with you. Camping equipment can be quite expensive in France especially during the peak season.

A family camping experience in France is something that you can tell stories of to your grandchildren. It is definitely a great and unique experience. It is a good vacation trip and it is certain, with proper planning, your whole family will enjoy.
