1. Brittany

Brittany, known as Bretagne in French, is a peninsula jutting out into the Atlantic on the north-west side of France. It is well known for its unique Celtic culture, recognised by UNESCO, as well as its absolutely stunning beaches, such as Dominion Beach or Rospico Cove . You can choose between going to one of Brittany’s numerous official campsites, located all throughout the region, or you can choose to go off the beaten track and camp in the countryside yourself. It is popular amongst British tourists due to easy access on the ferry from ports on the English Channel, and is well-served for tourists from other countries with international flights into Nantes, Rennes, and Brest, as well as good transport links to the rest of France. So if you go to Brittany, bon voyage, or beaj vat as the locals would say.

Normandy is full of well-established campsites,and you are sure to have a fantastic time if you choose to go there for your french camping trip.



Colloquially known as Provence, this region is widely considered the most beautiful in all France. Comprised of the glamorous Côte d’Azur to the south, and the magnificent Alps to the north, all with a stunning countryside in the middle, Provence is the place to go if you want to guarantee sunshine on your holidays. With an average temperature of 27 degrees during the summer, Provence allows you to get that beautiful Mediterranean climate without it getting too sweltering.

Transport to Provence is easy, with international airports in the major cities. Provence also abounds in natural parks, so wherever you go in Provence, you will have the camping holiday of a lifetime.

Aquitaine, situated in the southeast of France with the Atlantic Ocean to the west and the Pyrenees to the south, is considered one of the most beautiful places in France. It has long stretches of unspoiled coastline, including the Dune du Pilat, the tallest sand dune in Europe, famous for its paragliding. The largest city in Aquitaine is Bordeaux which has so many things to do, including a recently-opened wine museum known as the Cité du Vin. in addition to the coastline and the bustling cities, Aquitaine also has many ski resorts in the Pyrenees, ensuring a fun day out for anyone on camping holiday!

Occitanie, home to the wonderful Occitan language, is the southernmost region of mainland France.

Its sunny Mediterranean shores are popular for diving, kitesurfing, as well as sunbathing, whilst it also has numerous Pyrenean ski resorts and forests inland.
