Some Great Camping Parks In France For Beaches

My Selection Of Great Camping Parks In France For Beaches

If you love holidaying in France and also love great beaches, what could beat staying at a great camping park in France that backs directly on to one of it’s best beaches? Especially if, once you’ve arrived, you can park the car up until it’s time to leave, unless you’re ready for some sightseeing or retail therapy. Here’s my selection, in no particular order, of some great camping parks in France for doing just that.

1) Camping de la Baie, La Trinité-sur-Mer, South Brittany

Forgive me for some personal bias, but Camping de la Plage, located by the small resort of La Trinité-sur-Mer, South Brittany, was the site of my first family camping holiday way back in 1999. It still remains a great favourite.

Camping de la Plage takes both tourers and holidaymakers wanting a pre-erected tent or static caravan. As well as backing directly onto a sandy cove, a beachside bar and restaurant overlooks the bay too. Camping de la Plage also has it’s own swimming pool with waterslides and there are also two tennis courts, three table tennis tables and two boules pitches.

If you can’t get into Camping de la Plage, adjacent Camping de la Baie has similar amenities and access to the same beach via a slightly longer walk. In fact, there’s usually no difficulty using the amenities at both camping parks, regardless of which one you’ve booked to stay in.

The chic resort of La Trinite-sur-Mer itself is just a short walk away, with it’s scenic promenade, bars, shops and restaurants. All in all, a very agreeable place for a camping holiday.

Based on customer review ratings (9.5 out of 10), Yelloh! Village le Serignan Plage is Al Fresco Holidays highest ranked camping park. On top of that, it also has direct access to one of the best beaches in the south of France (as voted by Daily Telegraph journalists).

Amenities include a very popular tropical (heated) lagoon outdoor pool with a bridge and waterslides, a fun pool for youngsters with more waterslides and a pirate ship to play in. There’s also a heated indoor pool for those rare rainy days in the south of France.

There are 2 bars, a restaurant and a takeaway option. In high season, entertainment often continues up to midnight, so if sleep or an early night are a low priority, then this will be the place to stay.

There are plenty of facilities on the site such as a mini market, a butcher, a bakery, a fishmonger and Yelloh! Village le Serignan Plage also has an excellent reputation for being a friendly, clean and well-run camping park.

This is a large site, with over a thousand pitches so will be best suited to those looking for an action packed holiday. If that’s not your scene then a visit in a more off-peak period might be more to your liking.

Located just a few miles from Beziers on the Mediterranean coast of France, Yelloh! Village le Serignan Plage is a very popular campsite for families of all ages. Options for getting there include flying to a nearby airport such as Beziers or Montpellier or driving down from the Channel ports or Eurotunnel which will usually involve an overnight stay on the way down and back, unless you have someone to share the driving with.
