Travelling around France for 3 weeks in July/August children

My hubby and I are travelling around France in July/August with 2 children. We want to see and do as much as possible! Would appreciate tips on camp sites, tipi sites, tree houses, places to visit, fun stuff to do, adventurous stuff, all on a budget😃. Thankyou

This is where you need to find a guidebook or two and narrow it down -- France is a big place, with something for just about everyone's taste, and your description doesn't narrow it down even a little bit.

All we could do is toss out random place names, no better than throwing a dart at a map on the wall.

Do remember that July and August are peak vacation/holiday times in Europe, and anywhere you choose will be fairly heaving with people.

The school holidays in France start on July 6th and from that date many adults take their holidays - so popular family destinations are likely to be busy . Camping holidays are very popular both with French families and those from neighbouring countries including the UK - roads get busier too, specially into August.

You really do need to follow the advice above and decide on a region if you are to pre-book camping places. Camping is so "big" in France and I know there are specialist guide books as well as web sites devoted to it.

To plan your Travel itineraries see www.viamichelin.com

Not sure where you are from but if from outside Europe may I mention that the price of fuel is very high in France - as elsewhere in Europe.
