Gascony may be one of the most far-flung areas of France from the UK, but the two countries have a long history together. Gascony forms a triangle with Bordeaux, Toulouse and Biarritz at its extremes. It includes the French Basque country in the far South-West. The landscape is therefore varied, encompassing the huge man-made forests of Les Landes, the holiday coastline, and the foothills of the Pyrenees. It might not be that popular a destination with the British, but the French love Gascogne. So it's a great region to visit if you'd like a bit less of the British on holiday and a bit more of a French feel.

Camping holidays in Gascony are the perfect way to experience this fascinating corner of France. The climate is good, with the heat of summer being tempered by breezes from the Atlantic. These same breezes are responsible for creating perhaps the best surfing conditions in Europe (along with North Cornwall), so camping in one of the coastal campsites is a great option for surfers. Families are well catered for, with beaches stretching for miles and children-friendly campsites, as well as plenty of child-orientated activities.
