It's no coincidence that camping is France's favorite way of vacationing. And if you still have to be convinced to take the plunge, here are 5 good reasons to enjoy the joy of an outdoor holiday.
The value for money of the campsite
If there is a reason why camping is so high in the rankings of the best holiday accommodation, it is because it allows you to make great savings on your stay. Camping is cheap. It is a less expensive alternative to a hotel but which sometimes offers you services equal to or superior to those of hotels: swimming pool, entertainment for children/adults, evening entertainment... In addition, there are campsites absolutely everywhere: by the sea, in the countryside, in the middle of a forest… It is often easier to find the campsite corresponding to your search criteria than a hotel. And when you compare the price of a pitch to that of a room, the choice is quickly made! 🙂
The atmosphere and friendliness
Ah, of course, if you don't want to be disturbed, you should avoid camping. On the other hand, if you are rather sociable and like the idea of meeting new people, then you have come to the right place. Camping is friendly! And having already worked in a campsite I can tell you that the aperitif is a daily duty. 🙂 No kidding, unlike your hotel room where you stay locked between four walls, camping allows you to see people. Your neighbors will become your friends over the days and the aperitifs/barbecue will punctuate your evenings. Everyone says “hello”, “thank you”, “bon appetit”. The traditional dishes in the sanitary facilities become the meeting place for the ladies who take the opportunity to exchange gossip about this or that holidaymaker. It's like a big family! At the campsite, you feel at home, that's all that matters.
Contact with nature
What I like about camping is precisely this communion with nature. We spend most of our time enclosed between 4 walls and living outside feels great. Let yourself be woken up by the sun beating down on your tent, enjoy having breakfast in the sun barefoot on the grass or on the sand, admire beautiful sunsets and spend the night under the stars. It's a bit like being cut off from the world and living like an adventurer. Moreover, at the campsite we often forget laptop, computer and TV. We let ourselves live and we enjoy every moment. Getting closer to nature is good and you will see after a few days that living outside and spending most of your time under the sun makes you happy, it's as simple as that!
You never get bored at the campsite
That is very true! Whether it's thanks to the campsite's entertainment or the surrounding activities, it's impossible to get bored. Campsites are always at the heart of the action. Some of them are more family-friendly and promise peace and quiet (which is also a very positive point). Others, on the other hand, offer a whole host of activities for your children to enjoy their holidays. Without forgetting the karaoke evenings, Miss and Mister camping and so on. And especially if you go camping, don't forget your petanque balls. You could quickly be invited to a little contest between neighbors 🙂
Ideal for your children
If you are parents then there is a reason that may convince you to take the plunge: camping is heaven for children. It's true, I've never seen a child cry at the thought of going camping. Quite the contrary! The campsites are always full of entertainment for children of all ages. In the big campsites there are always mini-clubs with supercharged activity leaders ready to give your children an unforgettable holiday. There are always playgrounds in campsites, it's almost inevitable. Even your teenagers will be able to make friends and perhaps even experience their first holiday romance. 🙂
Finally, all that to say that alone, with friends or family, camping is an ideal place to spend a wonderful holiday.
