Me and my friend are hoping to travel to France for 4/5 nights camping at the beginning of August. We’re only really camping because we’re on a bit of a budget and it is so much cheaper but still want to do all the sightseeing and eating out at wonderful restaurants that we would do on a hotel holiday!
I think (??) the cheapest way to do it is to drive down to Dover – from the North-East :( - and hop on the ferry with my car to Calais.
Personally I would prefer to go to the South of France for the sunshine !! but I’m not sure that’s really feasible for the 4 night trip?? I would hate to spend my whole holiday driving.
So far we’ve looked at campsites near Calais…some of them look great but I’m just not too sure about the surrounding areas!? As I say, we’re not really going for the camping – we’re going to see France! We’d be happy to go exploring quaint little towns/villages or even much bigger cities! And being near a beach would just be perfect! We just want to ride bikes in the sunshine and eat croissants all day…is that too much to ask?? :)
I had looked at a campsite near a place called Le Crotoy..? Or how about heading a bit further south to Le Havre? Or we could split the trip and do a few places?
I would really, really appreciate any advice you can give me as I only have a few weeks to plan this and would ideally like to get it booked asap!! Sorry this is so long!! Thank you x
