Camping in France was the most popular camping holiday destination for UK families in 2011 according to I Spy Camping. Spain and Italy was second and third respectively, with the emerging destination, Croatia, in fourth.

As the 2011 camping season begins to draw to a close, traffic data from I Spy Camping’s near half-million visitors was used to determine the most popular camping destinations of the year.

I Spy Camping founder, Will Goodridge, commented "2011 was similar to 2010, in that people chose destinations closer to home. For example, we can see that North-West France was popular again, with Brittany, the Vendee and Charente Maritime taking up 3 of the top 4 places; Paris and surrounding area taking the other spot. Like previous years, holidaying closer to the UK means travel costs can be kept to a minimum.’ Goodridge went on to add ‘However, it would be wrong to assume that the North has had it all its own way this year, searches for South-West France, Languedoc and the Cote d’Azur came in 5th, 6th and 7th respectively".


"From an individual campsite point of view, Brittany’s flagship campsite, Chateau des Ormes in Dol-de-Bretagne was the most popular, with Castell Montgri near Barcelona and Le Vieux Port near Biarritz taking second and third positions."
