French Christmas markets and Christmas shopping in France


The Christmas markets in France and in general, shopping in France during the Christmas period, with all the festivities and atmosphere can really make a family holiday in France at this time of year even more appealing.

Camping equipment for sleeping in tents


Going camping in France with your own tent is a completely different scenario to arriving at one of the many campsites in France that already have tents including sleeping and kitchen facilities plus electric hook-ups already set up for you.

Choosing the right tent for a camping holiday in France


When going on a camping holiday in France, or anywhere else in Europe for that matter, if you have never been camping before, then we would suggest that spend some time looking at the different types of tent available.

Tent materials and how they are made


There are three main types of material that are used in tent manufacture. Cotton is the traditional material used and is still often found on frame tents and this can also be known as canvas, plus cotton is utilised a lot for inner tents.

So what style of tent should you buy?


Now you may have been looking and realised that some tents just have one area, others have fixed bedroom compartments, whereas others have compartments you put up individually within the main structure, but which one?

You see, when you go shopping, one of the first things you will probably notice is that you need a Euro in which to get a trolley (although some places you can also use a 50 cent piece), so make sure you have at least one Euro handy
