Links to find the best campsites and information….
With France offering so much choice when it comes to finding a place to stay, we have listed below a few links to make the job a little easier.
There is no one truly comprehensive online guide to the campsites of France but these two websites show a good choice of campsites if you need to book ahead.
Also, in France, the websites of regional tourism boards and tourist information offices (in individual towns) will have comprehensive campsite and “Aire de Service” listings for their area (as well as information on what to do, events etc.). Search online for the “Office de Tourisme” for any specific town in France or for campsites/information for a whole region, visit a regional tourism board. Here is our page showing the regional tourism boards in France: Regional tourist boards
If you don’t want to plan and book ahead, don’t forget there will be a comprehensive guidebook for campsites, “Aire de Service” halts and “France Passion” halts in your campervan when you arrive.

HERE’S 5 GREAT REASONS TO EXPERIENCE THE NEW VW CALIFORNIA:
Apart from the many features of the California we have mentioned in other posts, lets just think about the real reasons you might want to consider going on a campervan holiday, hear are a few reasons to convince you….. or your partner.…..
1. Be free..
No other method of travel offers such freedom, with a campervan you will be able to get into almost the same areas as a car with the convenience of your own ‘home’ on board. You can always find a place to stay, allowing you to follow a flexible campervan route at your own pace lingering when the time is right and heading in the direction your mood takes you.
2. See a new view everyday
Whether at the top of a mountain or at the seaside, you’re spoiled for choice in Europe when it comes to parking up for the night in some of the most picturesque locations. With each stop comes the opportunity to explore, discover and get away from day to day life.
3. Enjoy nature
Who doesn’t love breathing clean fresh air, hearing the serene sounds of nature, watching the sunrises and sunsets, feeling the seaside saltiness and smelling the dinner being cooked on the campfire… Few other forms of travel offer so much daily interaction and connection with the natural world. It simply makes you happy!!
4. Be social
You will be surprised at how often you will meet like minded people and experience a camping culture that is welcoming. Now with websites like French Passion, you will easily find a place to stay and people to meet.
5. Be ready to discover
On a campervan road trip, getting there is more than half the fun. Follow your nose down roads less traveled to encounter the unexpected – beaches, a small-town museum or historic site. Slow down, relax and be ready to discover..
And the best reason of all
Who doesn’t need a break from technology – smartphones, computers, tablets, television, movies, internet, video games, and so on?
