From Brittany to Lorraine and the Cote d’Azur, Will Goodridge, founder of the popular camping in France price comparison site, I Spy Camping, and former Siblu Holidays Head of eCommerce uncovers France’s hidden campsite gems.

Aluna Vacances Campsites - Go Camping in France with I Spy Camping

The idea behind the list is to inspire people to look beyond their brochures and explore different holiday destinations, whilst at the same time picking up a great holiday deal.

Goodridge believes campsites and holiday parks that do not appear in the brochures of operators like Eurocamp, Keycamp, Thomson Alfresco or Canvas are often overlooked by UK families. ‘The major operators work with some of the best campsites available, but there are so many more great sites, essentially hidden to most people in the UK. The idea behind the list is to inspire people to look beyond their brochures and explore different holiday destinations, whilst at the same time picking up a great holiday deal.'

The full Camping in France Top 10 campsites not to miss list can be found on the I Spy Camping website.

Amongst Goodridge’s list are two 5-star campsites, Village Tropical Sen-Yan and Lou Pignada both located in the south west of France. The 5-star rating was introduced last year by the French Federation of Camping and Caravanning (FFCC) to give holidaymakers a clearer idea on which campsites offer a larger range of facilities. The rating also takes into account whether staff can speak foreign languages; if handicapped access to accommodation and facilities is available and also the campsite's commitment to energy reduction.

Camping sites from popular French operators, Sunelia, Travel Horizon and Vacances Directes are also included on Goodridge's list. ‘Sunelia’s L’Hippocampe in Volonne is sandwiched between the Alps to the north and the Cote d’Azur to the south and the landscapes will keep you in awe for your whole stay,’ explains Goodridge. ‘Whilst offerings from operators such as Vacances Directes, include the excellent Le Carbonnier in the Dordogne and from Travel Horizon, Domaine de Ker Arno close to Carnac, will give holidaymakers good quality accommodation and a great base to explore magical Brittany.’

No doubt it takes time to find the right holiday for the whole family; something that I Spy Camping wants to help you reduce.
