Campsites in the Loire Valley and Burgundy

 Covid-19 info  French campsites are looking forward to a good summer in 2022, specially small campsites, like those in this guide, that do not accommodate large crowds of closely packed visitors. Campsites, like other accommodation providers in France, are bound by strict social distancing rules to prevent a resurgence, but there is no such thing as zero-risk. Yet overall, the smaller the campsites, the less people there will be, so the lower the risks will be too. Besides, smaller campsites, particularly those that are family-run, have a huge interest in making sure they remain virus-free, as their very survival could depend on it. With less than, and in most cases considerably less than, 100 pitches, many of the campsites listed on Rural Camping France are in rural locations where the virus never showed up even at the height of the pandemic.
