Motorhoming in Nord Pas de Calais

Motorhome travel in France has many surprises in reserve for travellers, not least of all the region of Nord Pas de Calais.  At the north eastern limit of France the region of Nord Pas de Calais has several different facets.  The department of Nord borders Belgium and has the North Sea off its coast whilst the Pas de Calais meets the Channel and is not only home to some well known port towns but also some of France’s best known seaside towns which became favourites during the ‘belle époque’ when taking the sea air became fashionable.

Despite the fact that Nord Pas de Calais does not have the reputation of being a very popular tourist destination it does in fact have many attributes and has witnessed a cultural and touristic rebirth in the last decade.  Contributing factors are its 140kms of coast line, including the ‘Opal Coast’, the city of Lille which was voted European Capital in 2004 and its generous and welcoming people who we could liken to our countrymen from Northumberland or Yorkshire.  There is also a reputed gastronomy which is particular to Nord Pas de Calais, drawing influences from neighbouring Belgium.

Look in to how to cross the channel if you’re hiring a motorhome in England or if you fancy hiring a motorhome in France that’s easy too.  Nord Pas de Calais also has interesting neighbours and you could follow by going motorhoming in Picardie or motorhoming in Champagne Ardenne.
