Camping Holidays in France - The TRUTH behind the brochures

Holidays to France, staying in mobile homes or fixed tents, are big business for millions of Brits - but how do we find the truth behind the positive words of the tour operators?

It may be ten minutes to the beach, but is that by helicopter? And what is the beach like when we get there? A unique new free guide to France Camping Holidays has the description from the tour operator, but also satellite pictures of the site and surrounds. And it makes abig difference!

Take Camping Les Cigales, near Cannes, as an example. Tour operator Suncamp says: "located just 800 metres from the beach and a stone's throw from fashionable Cannes, Les Cigales is a small, intimate and quiet camp site. And yet perfect in every detail" Click on the satellite image link and you see this is true, as long as being next door to the airport runway is a detail you approve of. Nice to know in advance, even if you are a keen plane-spotter.

Over 300 sites from operators like Eurocamp, Canvas Holidays, suncamp and Keycamp are featured on the maps on, with details and a shortlist function to make choosing easier. Now everyone in the family can look at the images and declare with confidence - "that's the site we want!" before clicking through to book.
