Camping International Paris Reviews

Camping International Paris Reviews

Camping International - Paris

Anyone staying at the fantastic Camping International Campsite at Maison-Laffitte, Paris, is in for a rare treat – a combination of lovely settings with very easy access to all the sights and sounds of one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. Central Paris is easily accessible by road or rail and you are staying on the banks of the River Seine, snuggly located for the best of both worlds – job done!

You’ll be spoilt for choice accommodation wise as well. Tents sleeping up to six and mobile homes sleeping a generous 8 people are available all season round. Mobile homes are either 2 or 3 beds and they all come with the home from home facilities (fridge/freezer, oven, grill, gas hob) you’d expect and with additional facilities such as stereo iPod docks and hair dryers thrown in. Some of our properties overlook the banks of the River Seine, beautiful surroundings, but if your little ones don’t swim the 100m crawl at Olympic pace you might want to request a property not so close to the river bank. One other thing, if you are travelling with friends you can secure neighbouring pitches for a small charge making sure you make the best of your shared holidays.

English is spoken at Reception and if the international nature of the site gets you going you can even have try up your German there as well. If you need to check back with the office (oh really – just let it go) or the kids can’t do without on-line games, internet and Wi-Fi access is available in reception. Having said that , we think you’ll so bowled over by everything this site has to offer you’ll soon forget the home routine.

The International Campsite has a long season, early March to late November which makes it great for half term breaks as well as longer summer trips. It’s also convenient enough to think about that long weekend break you’ve been promising the kids.

Facilities & Activities at Camping International

On site catering will make your holiday easier with a take-away (pizzas, burgers, fries) as well as a bar/restaurant that is family friendly enough to make meal times less of a chore.

There’s plenty to keep the family occupied during your stay. In an international site like this why not get the kids to organise table tennis, basket ball or boules tournaments. Who needs the Olympics really? Fishing is also available between 30 March and 30 October and relevant permits are available locally.

Maison-Laffitte, the local town, is about half a mile stroll away and features some great cafes and restaurants which would be ideal for introducing the kids to the French way of doing things! As well as the French shops (what visit to France wouldn’t be complete without taking them to the local boulangerie for a proper croissant or baguette) the town is your gateway to all the treats on offer in the area. The train station takes you to central Paris (Gar du Nord) one way or to Disneyland the other. Some choice! If you head to Paris your train ride will be just 20 minutes (and the trains run all day and most of the night). When you get to Gard du Nord the Metro puts all of Paris’ sites within easy reach. Be it the Eiffel Tower, Sacre Cour, Louvre, Montmartre or any other of the main tourist attractions you’ll find getting around Paris with the kids a doddle as you can buy a rail ticket that gives you access to the Metro all in one go.

For an unforgettable trip don’t forget the Palace of Versailles. A very short 15 miles and you get the breathtaking splendour that is Versailles with all its gardens and grand state rooms. These people really new about bling!

But whatever we say let’s be honest it’s going to be about Disneyland. With two parks, Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park to choose from you just know the kids will want to go back for second helpings.

If you are still in the theme park mood there’s a wealth of other parks in the area (thank you Walt!). France’s own Asterix the Gaul takes centre stage at Parc Asterix, Sea Life (it does what it says on the label) plays next door neighbour to Disneyland, while La Mer de Sable gives a Wild West flavour for your day trip.

Five Reasons to Book a Family Holiday to Camping International

  • DISNEYLAND (go on you know you want to!)
  • Stacks of other theme parks
  • Eiffel Tower
  • Sacre Cour and Notre Dame – Paris!
  • Easy access to many off site activities

Family Travel Guide to Paris

Being so close to Paris it’s probably best to focus attention there. With easy access from the UK (road or rail) it’s worth pointing out that once you’re there everything becomes very accessible because Paris is a much smaller city that our own London. This means that time spent on the Metro will be much more of a novelty than a necessary evil so you can spread your wings and soak up everything this wonderful city has to offer.

    We chose this campsite as a hub for exploring Paris or more specifically Disneyland, on that front we weren’t let down the transport links to and from Paris are great. The facilities onsite were a little out-dated but by no means dirty or broken like I’ve read in other reviews of Camping International.

    Yes the site is run-of-the-mill stuff but I found it all to be of satisfactory standard. It’s got all the main facilities you could wish for including shops, restaurant and lots of playful facilities for the kids. It proved to be a lot cheaper than staying in an hotel in Paris and for me personally a lot more fun. If I were to return to Paris again with the kids this would be on my list for consideration.

    A cheap and cheerful site.
