Renting a mobile home has become the preferred choice for many French holidaymakers as a means of enjoying a camping holiday with extra comfort. Renting a mobile home allows you to take full advantage of the great outdoors with the added benefits of furniture and equipment for a home-from-home feel.

The most popular regions visited by campers include the South of France, the Atlantic Coast with Aquitaine and la Vendée, as well as Brittany and Normandy.
Is there such a thing as a rating for a campsite? Yes, campsites are rated by the star system. A campsite may be given a classification of one, two, three or four stars. The decision is taken by prefectural order according to the opinion of the Commission of Departmental Tourism Action (CDAT). The classifications are based on precise standards, concerned with the quantitative aspect of the facilities.
