Things to do on a campsite with the kids  04/04/2014

The camping sites of France are the ideal destination if you’re looking to enjoy a brilliant family holiday in this scenic, historic and dynamic country, which offers great value breaks throughout the year. There are loads of top destinations in France and these make for a brilliant base to enjoy a family vacation in comfortable (and beautiful) surrounds.

For kids, in particular, there is nothing better than heading overseas during the school holidays and experiencing a brand new culture. And there are few, if any, countries in western Europe that offers the eclectic mix of tastes and styles that France does. It is, therefore, important to be aware that the nature of your family camping holiday will be largely dependent on whereabouts in the country you opt to visit.

So, for instance, if you’re looking to indulge in your favourite water sports then you’d be best advised to head to somewhere like the Vendee or the beautiful city of Biarritz, both of which are noted for this activity. 

Alternatively, if you fancy taking in a bit of culture and history, you may wish to consider taking a break in Brittany, which is home to a huge number of historic landmarks that represent a window into the region’s fascinating past.

But beyond the local style and culture, what is there about a camping holiday in France that is so appealing to families travelling with young children? Here, we’re going to explore some of the best amenities that you can expect to come across on your holiday and advise you on how to make the most of your camping experience.

Best destinations for camping holidays

Firstly, it’s important to identify some of the best travel destinations in France for a camping holiday, as choosing the right location will be imperative to your enjoyment factor. Among the best locations is the city of Biarritz, which is situated in the south of the country and is home to an impressive selection of beaches. Added to this, you will find that Biarritz boasts some beautiful golf courses and amazing views from the shore.

Alternatively, you may wish to visit the city of Bordeaux, which is best-known for the production of wine and no trip to the area is complete without sampling what the vineyards have to offer. What’s more, because this is a university city, you can guarantee that there will be a vibrant atmosphere at night time.

But if you’re keen to sit on a beach and soak up some sunrays, you should consider heading to the Vendee, a region that is noted for its amazing stretch of golden sand. Here, you can enjoy some water sports or simply relax and unwind on the shore, leaving your everyday stresses behind you (at least for a short period of time!).

Finally, for a cultured vacation, and in an effort to broaden the horizons of your young children, you should consider heading to Brittany, an historic region that is home to loads of amazing sights.

Carisma Holidays campsites

Once you’ve identified whereabouts you fancy spending your family summer holiday, you can start focusing your attention on what you plan to do with your time in your chosen area of France. Should you heed the advice emanating from Carisma Holidays customers reviews, then you’ll be aware that there are loads of activities on offer to people of all ages at our impressive campsites.

For young children, in particular, there are loads of activities staged at the campsites to ensure that they enjoy a break to remember. The Children’s Club runs for two hours a day on three or four days a week, depending on the site you decide to visit, offering lots of fun and the chance to make friends for children aged between five and 12.

It’s worth making the point, too, that there is a first-class baby-sitting service available at all Carisma campsites, which is worth taking advantage of if you wish to enjoy a little rest and relaxation.

For older children, the list of potential activities is even more broad and exciting. For instance, you can participate in tennis tournaments, windsurfing, go-karting, paintballing, canoeing, archery, football, volleyball and cycling. And if that prospect doesn’t get you excited, then not much will!

But what about activities for mum dad? Well, the water sports at the beach resorts are always worth trying for yourself, while there is no better way to see the beautiful French countryside than from the comfort of a bike saddle.

This way, you can take in the spectacular sights and sounds of the country, which is home to some stunning wildlife and scenery.

If you’re looking to enjoy a great family holiday, then France is a top destination – and Carisma Holidays’ campsites represent the ideal location for your break.
