Unlike tourist residences or hotels, many campsites have such a large capacity that you might be tempted to book at the last minute… or even not at all. It’s an option, but after the first week of July, the choice is soon restricted. For the top campsites, or the most popular destinations, like the coastal regions (and even more, Corsica), the summer reservations schedule is often busy or even full from spring onwards.
Setting off on a camping holiday means choosing between a short-stay campsite pitch (tent, caravan and campervan) and rented accommodation. In both cases, you’ll sometimes need to reserve. We’ll tell you when.
