Hotels are the most popular option for lodging in France. There are many different types of hotels, from luxury to just the basics. In some cases, there may be food options available at the hotel.
Camping is also popular in France. Tourist campgrounds offer sites nightly, weekly or monthly while recreational campgrounds have sites that are designed for longer stays. You may also stay at a residential leisure park that has either plain campsites or one with a mobile home, RV or recreational housing.
Bed and breakfasts offer a great way to not only enjoy beautiful accommodations, but also to immerse yourself in the French culture. Your room rate includes breakfasts usually accompanied by other guests and your host. Most have private baths and rooms that are much more comfortable than a stark hotel room.
You must hold a valid passport that will be good for at least three months beyond your stay. France does not recognize United States emergency passports issued by embassies and consulates. You may need to show proof of funds for your stay as well as a return airline ticket.
