Baby car seats in France

Thanks to Mumsnet, myself and my family are off to Brittany next week with Canvas holidays. In the holiday travel tips, it mentions that children under 10 are not allowed to travel in the front of the car in France. I have a rear facing baby seat that only fits in the front. There is no air bag on the passenger side. I assume that this is ok and that the regulation applies to children not restrained in car seats. Could anyone confirm this for me?
