Where to find a campsite for a family trip?

By choosing to spend your holidays in a campground, you make the choice of a holiday without hassle! Camping is a bit like being at home, while being somewhere else. You have your own little home, your own little comfort, but nothing to do with your daily life! You will enjoy the view, the nature, the garden in the middle of the forest or by the ocean and you will savour moments of simplicity with your family. Meet around a big meal under the southern sun, have fun at the beach all day long or tan by the swimming pool, in the evening let yourselves be surprised by the wonderful spectacle of the celestial vault and play cards or make sand castles...

Family time in RV: equipments

The conviviality of camping is a bit like the cicadas in Provence, the wine in Bordeaux or the Eiffel Tower in Paris. They are two inseparable elements. Hosts become friends, children run carefree and laughing in the green alleys, teenagers leave their phones, tablets and consoles behind, preferring outdoor activities! After months and months, locked in a grey and polluted daily routine, you're filling up with sunshine and the whole family's morale is high!

Here are some tips to help you enjoy your holidays with your family:

-If there are games in the campsite, a pitch is chosen to allows the children to go alone while keeping an eye on them.

-Even if there is not a lot of space in the tent, it is important to think about delimiting a small territory for each child, with a bed for each child, his toys or other reassuring objects, and all his belongings/toys nearby.

-In order for the children to be able to rest well in the afternoon, it is essential to have the tent in the shade beforehand. If, despite this precaution, it is too hot inside the tent at nap time (which is common in summer), do not insist, leave for a ride in the car or stroller to allow the children to rest in the cool.

-Avoid taking toys with small parts (lego/polly pockets...) that could get lost and we prefer board games, colouring, stickers, figurines, dolls... Moreover, there are already a lot of things to do and see on holidays so they will probably do not need a lot.

-Simplify things for meals! On the campsite, choose to picnic with things to pick up with fingers: carrot sticks/ cherry tomatoes/ big pasta/melon ... because camping chairs are not adapted to children, therefore, it avoids the plate to falls on the ground. Before the departure, you can prepare a salty cake and a cake which are used for the first meals on the campsite.

-A very stupid trick that simplifies life is to take a pot with a pouring spout in our crockery box, it avoids to spill children's milk next to the bottle, the boiling water on the fingers...

-To clean the little ones, you can only use the nomadic changing mat, some cotton, a very small sample bottle of lotion filled with water and a tube of cream if necessary.

-If you are afraid of public toilets you can use disinfectant wipes, however, it is not very ecological.

-Store your food in a box closed by a lid to avoid the invasion of ants. You can even think of storing it in the trunk of the car at night.

-Provide a plaid or an old blanket in addition to the table, as the chairs are not suitable for the little ones, and they are better on the floor to play, draw and even have a snack.

-Always hang your trash high and far away from your pitch (on a tree for example) to avoid ants... always!

If you want to discover something new, while spending holidays with your family, we advise you to try a yurt or a hut (in the trees or on the water). A change of scenery guaranteed!
