It is true to say that camping holidays these days for a lot of people doesn't just mean sleeping under canvas, staying in a mobile home on a campsite, enjoying the outdoor life with a touch of luxury has become the camping norm for many. Campsites are also devoting more and more space to mobile homes and glamping accommodation, meaning you have less choice than before as the number of pitches specifically for people who bring their own tents has reduced significantly over the last decade,

Whilst your options may be more limited now, there are still some great campsites in France to pitch up your tent and we want to highlight some of these to you below.
