An excellent publication. My purchase is to replace an old battered version. It gives a very comprehensive selection of sites including many of the French Municipal sites which I find excellent value for money. They can vary from very quiet country sites to busy town sites but all with very good facilities. This publication gives all the necessary details to make a decision on where to go and covers a wide range of costs, not focussing on the expensive/coastal sites like some books. If you only have one guide this should be it.

I've gone for a three star rating because I found this book extremely useful but rather frustrating. This was on a trip through the Pas de Calais, Somme, Loire, Vendee and back through Brittany.

I won't go higher than three stars for several reasons. It only features a small proportion of the campsites around and there must be more decent ones. Even so, the book is rather bulky and most of it will be useless unless you really are covering the whole of France on your camping trip but you can't bin half the book as the regions are listed in alphabetical order rather than proximity, east to west, for example. Also, the region maps only show the towns and villages that feature the campsites in the book and nothing to bear them in relation to like major cities, roads or other possible touring destinations. That's just weird. But the main problem is finding the campsites. The listing gives a grid square on the corresponding Michelin map but these grid squares are large enough to cover whole cities so they aren't going to help you find a campsite. There is a decimal grid reference given for the GPS (which seems to be fairly accurate in most cases) but of course the corresponding Michelin maps don't use a decimal grid reference as they have the degrees, minutes and seconds. So reading one from the other would require a slide rule. (There isn't a helpful little O.S. style blue tent on the map to help you either.) There are varyingly useful directions given in French in the listing which can help but often refer to streets which are as lost to you as the campsite, and don't confuse est with ouest. Doh.

So why even give it three stars? Basically, the campsites were very good.

This is the "Bible" for those who are wanting to camp in France, and is constantly updated, incorporating user comments. A single multilingual version is produced every year, although it does help if you have a smattering of French (which campsites tend to appreciate anyway!). It comes with a wealth of helpful regional, local area and town/city maps, which give an indication of where each campsite is located.

For a fun fortnight in France, book the first couple of nights only, and then see where you fancy going after that. Just make sure you take the book with you, although you should manage to pick up another one in France if you forget... (there's a great bookshop in Chartres that we visited for that very reason)

We really enjoyed some of the campsites on Ile de Re ("La Providence" in Les Portes-en-Re) and in Larmor Plage ("Camping des Algues) but see what takes your fancy.

Bonnes vacances!

I've used these guides for a long time. I soon got used to the symbols and minimal amounts of French to read the rest. I don't, however, find the newer versions as easy to use as the ones with maps of the whole of France in one section and just an alphabetical list of all campsites.

In fact I found this latest one quite hard to use where an area, the Dordogne say, which is spread over a couple of departements and regions is shown all of a bunch on the map but details are in the actual regions and so in different sections of the book. Without the aid of an old Michelin Atlas which shows the campsites on the maps themselves I think I might have thrown this into a hedge bottom at an early stage.

It's not hard to find the campsite from the details given, it's hard to find if there's a campsite near where you are at the time. If you have a GPS it'll find the actual location from the coordinates given, but again, you still have to find the details to enter them in the first place.

Having said that though, I still find the campsites recommended in the guide to be of a good standard and worth finding so I shall no doubt continue to use the guides as I've never found a real substitute.

If you want to go camping in France then take this book and,of course,a tent. It tells you everything except the temperature. Of course for non-French speakers it may be a little confusing but the symbols are easily understood after checking the lexicon. The French are inveterate campers: some actually move out of their homes during the summer to live on camp-sites while continuing their ordinary lives - work, television and children just fit in.

This is the only book for those who would like to camp in France. It has diections to the campsites and useful maps. It is organised by the regions of France and it is the best book for the purpose. I thoroughly recommend it.
