Camping in France was the most popular camping holiday destination for UK families in 2011 according to I Spy Camping. Spain and Italy was second and third respectively, with the emerging destination, Croatia, in fourth.

As the 2011 camping season begins to draw to a close, traffic data from I Spy Camping’s near half-million visitors was used to determine the most popular camping destinations of the year.

I Spy Camping founder, Will Goodridge, commented ‘2011 was similar to 2010, in that people chose destinations closer to home. For example, we can see that North-West France was popular again, with Brittany, the Vendee and Charente Maritime taking up 3 of the top 4 places; Paris and surrounding area taking the other spot. Like previous years, holidaying closer to the UK means travel costs can be kept to a minimum.’ Goodridge went on to add ‘However, it would be wrong to assume that the North has had it all its own way this year, searches for South-West France, Languedoc and the Cote d’Azur came in 5th, 6th and 7th respectively’.

‘From an individual campsite point of view, Brittany’s flagship campsite, Chateau des Ormes in Dol-de-Bretagne was the most popular, with Castell Montgri near Barcelona and Le Vieux Port near Biarritz taking second and third positions.’

The full list of the most popular campsites in France, Spain and Italy can be found on the I Spy Camping website.
