The Best Family Campsites in France
Going on holiday with the family can be both wonderful and tortuous in equal measure. On the one hand, it’s great to get everyone in one place to enjoy some quality time together, away from the bustle of everyday life. On the other hand, close relatives have been known to squabble with each other – even when – or especially when – brought together for a special occasion such as this.
This should not be a deterrent to the family member tasked with organising the vacation itinerary – it is, after all, completely normal. For instance, Grandma might not have the same energy as the children and might subsequently want to do something a bit more relaxing. Likewise, your adventurous grown-up daughter might prefer a challenging hike up a mountain to a walk along the beach.
A bit of nature
Those who enjoy nothing more than exploring the great outdoors will love this site. It’s actually found right in the middle of the Pyrénées National Park, making it the perfect location for those in your party who love seeing wild animals up close. Amongst the fauna of this park are the griffon vultures, golden eagles and bears.
A bit of glam
