French Operators Help Families Go Camping in France

I Spy Camping today released its May 'where's hot, where's not' camping in France holiday list and it shows French camping operators are getting more than their fair share of the attention. The list compiled each month by I Spy Camping, tracks the most popular campsites viewed by visitors to its website. The full list of the most viewed sites in France to go Camping can be seen on the I Spy Camping website.

Campsites from Sunelia, Vacances Directes and Travel Horizon take up 8 of the 10 places, with Le Vieux Port in Messanges and Sol a Gogo in the Vendee, being the most popular sites. Others include ‘hidden gem’ 5-star Lou Pignada and the 2-star Domaine de Kermario near Carnac in Brittany at the opposite end of the rating spectrum.

Will Goodridge, I Spy Camping founder, commented, ‘Regions such as Brittany and Aquitaine in the South West of France continue to be popular, this year as they did last year, mainly as they offer good value for money. The shorter travelling time to the north of France appeals to families, and for those looking for guaranteed sun, cheaper flights tend to be found to the South West of France than to the Cote d’Azur.’

Goodridge added ‘The list not only represents which campsites are currently popular but also gives our visitors a useful starting point if they need inspiration. From our statistics we can see that 1 in 2 visitors visit the ‘most viewed campsites’ page on the site, this together with the fact that 70% of our visitors come to us having used search terms such as ‘camping in france’ and ‘campsites in france’ shows that visitors are coming to us at an early stage of their holiday search and need inspiration.’

‘I Spy Camping is uniquely placed to inspire camping holiday ideas’ believes Goodridge. The site recently released the top 10 French camping hidden gems list to help people discover new campsites, and their Love Camping France campaign on Facebook continues to gather momentum; inviting the near thousand followers to post their holiday recommendations.

I Spy Camping’s May indicators also showed that Keycamp, Canvas and Vacansoleil continue to be popular choices, particularly for camping holidays in France, Northern Italy and Croatia.
