Caravan Sites in France

First things first, here are some things you should be aware of when travelling to France.


Sites in France Checklist

Roundabouts - remember to exit on the right, since everyone drives on the right in France.

When approaching some roundabouts, there may be a sign saying 'Vous n'avez pas la priorité'. This means that traffic on the roundabout has priority.

If there is no sign, traffic entering the roundabout has priority.

Common signs:

  • 'Toutes Directions' (all directions)
  • 'Autres Directions' (other routes)
  • 'Péage' (toll motorway).

There may be some main roads where you don’t have right of way – you’ll need to give way to traffic approaching from the right.

These signs show who has priority:

Pedestrians have priority over vehicles when crossing a road.
