A campsite to suit your needs
When we ask campers what they like about camping, this is what they say: the absence of restrictions, living outdoors, getting close to nature, simplicity. Simply put, camping is all about freedom!
However, there are different sorts of camping.
As a family, alone, up in the mountains or on a natural camping ground, in a camper van or a motorhome… There are so many different ways to experience camping, depending on your tastes and needs! All you have to do is figure out what kind of camper you are… Here’s some information about the different types of campsite or open-air accommodation!
Traditional camping – For families
This is the most popular type of camping, perfect for families and people who would like to spend time in the great outdoors, while still enjoying some basic comforts! Affordable prices, a warm and welcoming atmosphere and friendly setting, traditional camping is the ideal solution for a simple, easy and successful holiday.
Bivouac – For adventurers
This is a real adventure. Under the starry sky or in a tent, bivouac (or wild camping) is undoubtedly the best way to completely disconnect from everyday life! Being outdoors from morning to night, seeing the sunrise over the mountains, enjoying being all alone in the world… A magical and precious moment between only the mountains and you! In France, wild camping is allowed anywhere where it is not forbidden. Make sure you find out before planning your camping trip.
Camper vans and motorhomes – For road trippers
Travelling from mountain to mountain in your very own comfortable cocoon: the dream! A camper van or motorhome is ideal for campers who like to be flexible and explore new places as and when they feel like it, while keeping their little home comforts at all times! On the road again.
