Camping in Europe with kids

Jump to last reply

We are planning to take our little ones age 2,4,6 and 8 years to Portugal, Spain, France and Italy for a few weeks. We assume hiring a car is the best option for transport and camping / backpacking mixed in with other options for accommodation would be do-able.

Are we totally silly for this? What is camping like in Europe? What should we be aware of? Has anyone here done this? We are not novice campers as we camp fairly regularly. Kids love it. But never done it in europe with kids.

Also advice about cars and driving. How much is gas?

What is a reasonable daily budget for accommodation if not camping? How many Euros per day?

Any advice / warning / encouragement appreciated!!
