Visiting France by campervan


One of the best things about travelling in a campervan is that you can park up anywhere you like! For us this has meant spending nights on cliff top car parks, next to lakes, on the side of country lanes amongst many other places and it means if your getting hungry and your driving you can just pull over, put the kettle on, make a sandwich then carry on when you’re done! When crossed the border from Spain back into France it was already getting dark so we decided to stop at the next nearest suitable place and the pictures here show the view we woke up to…

We visited many places in the South of France including Montpellier, the Carmargue (yes we did see wild white horses!), Avignon, St. Tropez, Nice, Monte-Carlo and Monaco but unfortunately for us it didn’t stop raining for about 7 days while we were there so we haven’t got many pictures of these places but never mind.

On our last day in France we were trying to find somewhere to park up for the night near to Monaco and suddenly found ourselves crossing the border into Italy and on the approach to a toll road with no prior warning! They charged us €3.60 just to drive on and off the toll road, probably all of half a mile if that…welcome to Italy we thought!

Ending this post I really recommend you goind down to Spain and visit Cádiz (My experience in Cadiz) because it´s just amazing, as France it is.
