Camping Holidays in Paris

Paris is one of the most famous cities in the world. One of the things you don’t expect to see is how compact everything in Paris actually is which makes sightseeing really easy. It’s one of the world’s greatest cities and is full of wonderful buildings and famous tourist attractions. It also has superb restaurants, sometimes it feels like there’s one on every corner so staying close to Paris means you’ll have plenty to do and see.

Known as the “City of Lights,” Paris it’s is one of the world’s top business centres and is renowned for its culture and fashion. Paris is a beautiful, cosmopolitan city that was designed to demonstrate France’s glory and some of its sweeping boulevards really do take your breath away.

Don’t forget though that Paris is best seen on foot. Strolling from place to place you’ll come across pretty tree lined streets and squares with pleasant cafes and restaurants. Finding your way around is easy. T he geographical centre of Paris, the first arondissemont, hosts the Louvre, possible the finest museum in the world, and the famous Tuileries Gardens, opposite the Pyramid of the Louvre. Place Vendôme is home to Paris’ jewelers Van Cleef & Arpels and Boucheron. While haute couture designers such as Yves St-Laurent and Christian Dior can be found on rue Saint-Honoré. The 3rd and 4th arondissemont together make up the area of Marais, the oldest part of the city. The area is steeped in history and has plenty of atmosphere, served in bucket loads and is well worth visiting.

The River Seine runs through the city and divides the city into some it’s most colourful areas. Walking along the river is a great way to see what’s on offer in the city and gets you access to the Isle de La Cite.

Holiday Parks in Paris

Campsites in Paris are all on the outskirts and served by great commuter trains which means you can be in the centre of Paris within 20 minutes, view campsites near Disneyland Paris. Many of these commuter lines actually run 24 hours a day so staying on the outskirts won’t cramp your style too much either. You can see what’s on offer by clicking on the images below;

Campsite International is just 40 minutes from Disneyland Paris, if you listen carefully you can hear the screams from Space Mountain. Sitting just on the edge of Paris along the banks of the River Seine, International Parc is the perfect campsite for those wanting all luxuries of a holiday park without straying to farther afield from Paris. With canoeing, fishing, golfing, football, basketball, table tennis and horse riding all available onsite you might find yourself dragging the family to Disneyland.

 

La Croix du Veiux Pont is located in Berny Riviere which is about an hour’s drive North of Paris and under 2 hour’s drive to Disneyland® Paris, which is actually located just South of Paris. Although not as close International Campsite, La Croix du Veiux more than makes it up for its distance from Disneyland with its superb spacious green spaces. The rural setting makes for a beautiful backdrop making it the perfect place to get back to nature, a totally different environment to Disneyland, Paris.

Things to do in Paris

Eiffel Tower

Built to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution in 1889 the tower is still going strong over 120 years later. It has become the symbol of all things French and Parisian as well. It’s worth visiting because the views from the top are something spectacular. You can see up to 45 miles on a good day. It does get busy (very) as you’d expect so I might be work planning an early visit to avoid the crowds.

Sacre Coeur

In Montmartre the Sacre Coeur Basilica looks out, from the top of a hill across Paris with views to the Eiffel Tower and Pompideu Centre. Behind the basilica is the artists square where you can buy original art and eat a lovely lunch in the shade of the trees. Below the basilica is the area of Monmatre which id the home of the famous Moulin Rouge cabaret bar.

Centre Pompidou

The Centre Pompidou is some thirty years old and has become apart of the cultural backbone of France. It has a vast collection of contemporary art and is constantly housing ground breaking exhibitions. The building itself was ground breaking when it was designed in that it’s shell contains a network of pipes on the outside that contain services. Blue pipes for air conditioning, green for plumbing, yellow for electricity and red for elevators.

Getting to Paris

As a capital city, Paris is very easy to get to from the UK. Eurostar provide a regular service from London St Pancras to Gare du Nord in central Paris. If you want to fly you’ll be spoiled for choice as there are scheduled flag carriers such as BA and Air France slogging it out with a raft of no frills airlines for your business. No frills flights tend to fly from London Luton, London Stansted and may regional airports.
