Camping Holiday in France

Hi all,

looking to go to France this year (recommendations welcome) on holiday to a campsite park. I have seen lots of nice places on-line but what i really want is a holiday package that you can fly and stay and not drive. I am in Scotland looking to fly from Glasgow/Prestwick so if anyone has any good advice i'd love to know.

cheers all

I would recommend a place called pachacaid near saint tropez in the south of france. about 10 minute drive from saint tropez (which may or may not have an airport but I know some cheap airlines fly to nice which is not that far away) but has loads of stuff to do on site. I went via the sun holidays so it was only about 70£ for the week and a good campsite!

i really like the areas on the coast around perpignan, like Argles. beatiful scenery and plenty to do. you can fly into perpignan airport and use companies like eurocamp or keycamp. Bit cheaper than st-tropez or frejus but still the great weather if not better.
Biarritz is good for surfing watersports, etc.. but the weather can be a bit changeable and your not guaranteed sunshine for your trip at anytime of year. but airport close by.
Final recommendation would be areas around Vias / Vias plage, flying in to smoewhere like Montpellier.

Just to add - Biarritz, if your taking kids the sea can be particularly dangerous. and remember at most sites in france the pools are budgie smugglers only.......
let me know if you want any other info.


hope this helps.

We used this chain (Castels) for many terrific holidays but you're going to struggle at most campsites without transport as they tend to be out of towns.

very true!! the eurocamp brochures are very good for giving distances to shops, bars, the beach, train stations etc..... for each site, that may help you.

I stayed here lots of years ago.
Really good site then and close enough to the main railway line that runs along the riviera Not too far from Nice airport along the railway.

Stayed at this place (Camping du pylonne) 2 years ago...wonderful site, both train and bus stops are at the end of the road from the site (less that a 5 minute walk)
Be warned though...apart from happy hour drinks are VERY expensive onsite.
In fact eating out and drinking out all over the South of France is pretty expensive

However public transport is pretty cheap and you can go to Italy for about a tenner each return by train

I did the whole trip with my wife by train and it was a brilliant.
Metrolink to Manchester
Manchester to London
Walk from Euston to St Pancras to get the Eurostar (about 1 mile)
London to Paris (Gare De Nord)
Across Paris (Gare Du Nord to Gare de Lyon)
Gare De Lyon to Antibes
Antibes to Biot (only one stop)

From Manchester to Biot and from Biot back to Manchester was all booked by me on the internet. I would have booked the whole trip online but couldnt book the Metrolink as its pay at the station
5 Min walk to campsite

Hope this helps
