    Thanks for that post! We live in British Columbia and camping is a big thing here as well! Everyone goes camping during the summer… except us. It just looks like so much work and so many things to buy up front and I am not sure I want to do it at all.

    We love Le Serignan Plage campsite which is another Yelloh! campsite. It’s got a great pool, has a wonderful setting and is close to a lovely beach.

    Hi
    Thanks for the info on the campsites. We have travelled through the French canals from the English Channel to the med. Now though we have converted a van in to a camper van and in the spring were going to do some travelling on the land for a change and it is very helpful reading people’s views on different places to stay.

    Thanks again Barry

    Such a fun post! Honestly, when I think of France mostly Paris and wine region comes to mind, so it’s a nice reminder that there’s so much more to explore in the country!
