The enduring popularity of France as a camping holiday destination among Britons has not waned, according to a leading camping company.
Citing the accessibility and the tradition of a British holiday, Ruth Start, head of sales and marketing at Eurocamp, said that France's many campsites catered for those wishing to take a camping holiday.
"France remains a popular choice with Eurocamp customers as it is easily accessible from the UK and remains a camping legacy in terms of being the original camping destination for Brits," she commented.
Ms Start cited Vendee as popular camping destination with its 400 classified camp sites, and she also rated Gascony and Brittany for the UK's outdoor enthusiasts.
Vendee, located on the French Atlantic coast, is an ideal location for British campers as it is within two to five hours of various western ferry ports.
The resurgence in ferry travel is particularly beneficial for campers who can take their car over the channel without the worries of weight restrictions.
Campers are reminded of the importance of travel insurance when going on holiday.
