Bourgogne-Franche-Comté caravan and motorhome sites

 

A great historical region of France, Burgundy is famous for its fine and expensive wines.

The area's colourful history has produced a rich heritage of Romanesque architecture, still standing as testaments to the skilled labourers of the time.

After a long day of sightseeing and exploring all that the region has to offer, round the evening off by trying one of the many local liqueurs. Marcs liqueur is very popular in Burgundy but also well known outside of France and has been matured for years in oak casks to get its rich flavour.

Sharing a border with Switzerland, the Franche-Comté has plenty of natural beauty and a rich history.

Top questions

How do I book an overseas site?

Overseas campsite bookings can easily be made on the Club website and "combined deals" are common when you book a campsite at the same time as your ferry crossing. Booking online means you save the £10 Contact Centre booking fee.

Does the Club take deposits for overseas bookings?

Yes, deposits for overseas bookings are calculated at 20% for a site and 25% for a ferry (unless it is a non-refundable ferry/Eurotunnel in which case full payment is due at time of booking). The final balance is due 10 weeks prior to travel.

Is the standard of overseas sites similar to that of the UK?

European campsites are star-rated by their own local authorities and can have different standards and regulations to the UK. However, the Club's travel team handpick and inspect our campsites so that members can be sure of a high standard.
