We’ve been camping in France many times before and know from experience how stressful a ferry crossing can be when you have small children to entertain. When our youngest first went to France he was just 11 weeks old, and that combined with his two big brothers, who were 23 months and 6 we were prepared for the worst!
One of the most important things to most families when booking their family camping holiday in France are the campsite swimming facilities. Whether you’re a family who like to spend your days at the beach and in the sea or you prefer the superb pool complexes available at the campsite’s we feature, it’s important to consider taking children’s swimming aids with you.
Camping Le Chateau des Marais campsite provides a wonderful setting for young families looking for the ideal place to go camping in France. The campsite enjoys a peaceful setting amongst woodland, in the grounds of a very impressive manor house. Ideally suited to those with younger families it’s relatively small with around 230 pitches, all of which are fairly generous in size.
Camping with babies and toddlers in France normally leads to one question! Can we buy baby formula and nappies in France or should we take our own? Baby formula in France tends to have slight differences in the ingredients and therefore may not taste the same. You may also find that the formula is slightly thicker which may not dilute as well and your baby may therefore not enjoy.
Now you may have heard some rumours about new rules and regulations when driving in France. We thought we’d give you the low down on the recent proposals. The first major change, that may affect you on your holiday camping in France, is it will be compulsory to carry a breathalyser in all vehicles, as of spring 2012.
If you’re looking for somewhere fun and lively to go camping in France, then Le Vieux Port could be the choice for you. One of the largest campsites in the area, Le Vieux Port continues to be a very popular choice with families of all ages. We loved Le Vieux Port for many reasons but two of the best features of this campsite are the campsites location and the amazing pool complex.
