Unusual vacations in France

If you fancy trying something a bit alternative, but without the hassle of flying somewhere far flung to do it, a France unusual vacation is sure to suit you – make like a Mongolian and sleep under the stars, camp in a gypsy caravan, or embrace self-sufficiency and stay somewhere entirely off-the-grid; France may not be considered exotic, but scratch the surface and it has some cool and very unlikely offerings to try out.
