Family camping holidays in France

Camping holidays can be an excellent way to holiday without the need to break the bank but the often inclement weather in the UK deters a lot of holidaymakers from taking this option however if you consider a camping holiday in France you have a greater chance of better weather especially the further south you travel.

Many of the camp sites in France have excellent facilities and most have magnificent swimming pools or aquaparks that have slides, rapids and staff that run aqua fitness sessions. There are plenty of places to eat on site whether you want to sit in a restaurant or just grab a snack. Each site has a shop so that essentials like bread and milk can be purchased daily.

If you don’t want to have the hassle of taking your own camping equipment with you, some holiday companies offer ready erected tents on site that have comfortable camp beds, full cooking facilities and fridges and freezers inside. Bedding and towels can be hired so that clothing and toiletries are the only things you need to bring. Beach goods can often be bought locally if you want to take advantage of the many glorious beaches France has to offer.

Taking your dog on holiday

Many people love the idea of being able to take your pet with you when you go on a camping holiday but you do have to consider your options carefully before committing to taking them along.

Firstly you should check that the campsite allows dogs. Many do, but sometimes you will have to pay extra to take them with you. Secondly, you need to consider how long the journey is to and from your destination and what your dog is like at travelling. If the dog is not particularly happy travelling in a car then it is often not a good idea to take them on long journeys if it can be avoided.

Some beaches restrict dogs altogether others may restrict dogs at certain times of the years or on parts of the beach. This is important to check as if you get there and find that dogs are not allowed on the beach it may spoil your holiday, meaning that you have to find other things to do.

Sometimes having a dog with you can be very restrictive. If you are planning on spending much of your time on a campsite or going for walks then taking your dog may be ok, but if you are wanting to go to attractions, go out for meals or visit zoos or amusement parks etc then it may be better to find someone to look after them at home.

Ensuring you stay safe when on holiday this summer

Holidays are something that we all look forward to. It may be that you have been saving up for a while or booked your holiday over a year ago, and the time has finally come to jet off.

When people go on holiday they often relax more which can mean they get a bit complacent at times. It is very important to still think carefully about your safety when on holiday and possible even more so than when you are at home, as you may be unfamiliar with your surroundings.   

If you decide to go out for a few drinks or to a club in an evening when on holiday, try and avoid travelling alone. Try and meet up with your friends at the hotel and then all travel together. Be sure that if you do go anywhere on your own, that someone knows where you are going and what time you will be back. Be sure to take a phone with you so you have a way of contacting someone should you need help.

If you have children with you, make sure that they are not out of your sight for a second. There may be many more dangers than they are used to when on holiday, such as, as the sea/swimming pools, traffic or crime.
