What to expect from camping in Paris & Ile de France
Whilst it is unlikely that Paris will immediately spring to mind when we are considering a camping break in France, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the all that the region has to offer lovers of outdoor holidays.
Our campsites in Ill de France are located close enough to the French capital that you can easily visit the eternal city and the wonderful Disneyland® Paris amusement park. With any good al fresco escape, you’ll be perfectly perched in the lap of nature where you can happily explore the lovely surroundings of the region.
Things to do when camping in Paris & Ile de France
The city of lights needs little introduction, it’s one of the most visited cities in the world and with good reason. Paris is home to a multitude of stunning sightseeing attractions; the Louvre, the Champs Elysées & Arc de Triomphe and Notre Dame Cathedral… the list keeps going on. Scale the heights of the Eiffel Tower for sublime views of the city or delve into the eerie underground tunnels of the Catacombs.
After you’ve bagged some photos at the main attractions, perhaps it’s time to swing by one of the many cafes, restaurants or patisseries on offer. Sample delicious dishes and sweet treats such as croque monsieur, crepes, macarons and croissants.
Our campsites in Paris & Ile de France are ideally positioned to take day trips to two of Europe’s most popular amusement parks: Disneyland® Resort Paris and Parc Asterix.

The region is home to many alluring chateaux and palaces, but we’d recommend a visit to Palace of Fontainebleau, Château de Ferrières and Château de Saint-Germain-en-Laye. If you only have time to visit one building of cultural and architecture importance while on a camping holiday in Paris & Ile de France, it has to be the imposing Palace of Versailles and its lavish Hall of Mirrors and gorgeous gardens.
