Small campsites

Most campsites listed on have less than 50 units in all (camping pitches and units for hire). Some are much smaller, and many have no more than a couple of fixed units (chalets, furnished tents, log cabins etc.) for hire. Some have no rental units, and are exclusively for visitors with their own tent or caravan. Some have swimming pools. A few campsites have between 60 and 100 units, 100 being the current limit.

Brittany and Normandy:

These two regions make up the northwest corner of France; they enjoy an Atlantic climate, meaning that they are relatively mild in Summer, and not too cold in winter, specifically in the coastal areas. Brittany and Normandy are popular for cycling holidays, since they are easy to reach. For more regional information, visit the Brittany and Normandy pages on About-France. com.

Most campsites in France are only open for a limited season. Outside of this period, reasonably cheap and convivial accommodation is available in independent hotels in Brittany or Normandy, or bed and breakfast accommodation. For longer stays, an excellent solution offering great value for money is to choose a gite or holiday cotttage. Check out gites in Brittany or gites in Normandy, since many gite owners offer highly discounted rates outside the main summer holiday period.
