I don't do July/August in France, it is rumoured to be very busy! =;
If you want to break into it gently, then stick to Brittany / Normandy, they are beautiful areas, english is generally spoken.
there are lots of web sites - try www.campingfrance.com
there are also several travel companies here who can take care of booking n stuff for you.
Eurocamp Independent, Select Sites,
also Camping Cheques - there is a thread somewhere on this.
can't remember website addresses but google will find them for you :thumbright:
once you decide that there are some things that you will [probably] need, like continental adaptor for electric, first aid kit, spare bulbs warning triangle - [halfords / AA supply a lot of this in kit form- saves you the trouble of finding everything]
what we should have on this site is a separate with a list of what you need.
don't tell me - there is one already :!: :?:
I was thinking of an area where we could all list stuff that we have found useful over the years, people add to it as and when somethine new comes along! A bit like the self-help book AgentOrange is doing, but maybe not so technical - just a tick list. :grommit: with some good smileys :wink:
