Here, we take a look at five of the continent’s finest camping spots and consider what each has to offer.


1. Cote d’Azur, France

The French Riviera is heralded the world over for being one of the most naturally beautiful holiday resorts on the planet. From the glistening ocean of Saint Tropez to the glitz and glamour of Cannes, there is no shortage of class in the French South.

If what you’ve got in mind is luxury camping south of France, the coastline is ideal for summer campers looking for something a little more luxurious. Best explored by car, the Cote d’Azur offers campers the chance to drop in on a variety of world class resorts and beaches.


2. Croatia 

Sitting on the Adriatic Sea, just across from Italy, Croatia boasts some of the continent’s finest beaches. What is particularly brilliant about Croatia is that it remains relatively untouched by tourists. Where other European destinations can become crowded during the summer months, Croatia’s beaches remain peaceful and authentic all year round.


3. Spain 

Spain is well known for its merits as a holiday destination and an opportunity for Brits to sneak a top up for their tan. With its phenomenal tourism infrastructure, campers can be sure to enjoy a host of activities, from golfing to water sports.


4. Sicily, Italy 

The South of Italy is the perfect destination for those seeking a chance to put their feet up and indulge in some of life’s luxuries. The summer climate lends visitors the chance to enjoy local wine and food which rivals any other in the world for quality. The laid back pace of life creates a wonderful atmosphere in which to unwind while camping away.


5. Slovenia

If you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary when planning your seaside holiday, it might be worth taking a look at Slovenia. Slipping across the border in the country’s West, visitors have access to some of the continent’s most spectacular beaches on the Adriatic, just North of Croatia. The country’s culture offers something a bit different from much of Europe and for this reason alone it is well worth the visit.
