We are hoping to spend just over a fortnight in France in the beginning of October. Our children will be 3 1/2 and just gone 2 by then.

We will be sailing into Cherbourg, and are looking at using a combination of wildcamping and aires, as well as campervan parks with activities etc for the children.

Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for this time of year?

Thanks in advance.

Might be worth you getting an ACSI card to save money on camp sites that are still open as it will be low season,
You can always check their website first for open sites

Hope you have a good holiday

Here's all the Municipal camp sites. These are run by a town or village and can be very affordable CLICKY (http://www.camping-municipal.org/index.htm)

ill be going again in september...my kids are 6 and 9 now though!
we went last year and it was awsome, we camped in a yelloh village park, if you look on there website, sign up and they will send you offers. they are like a haven type of park! I wilded and have to recommend a visit to honfleur, and Le mont saint michel - have to pay to park at these but its not much. (honfleur has hook up and water posts). if you want to know more, pm me!

Thank you so much for all your advice and suggestions. Pretty new to all of this- only bought our first camper last month, and so far have only travelled around Ireland.

Thanks again to everyone.
