Motorhoming in Provence Alpes Côte d'Azur

Motorhoming in Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur

Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur in the south east of France is commonly known as PACA and is the area which is often referred to simply as Provence.  The three departments Hautes Alpes, Alpes de Haut Provence and the Alpes Maritime border Italy to the east, the Alpes Maritime, Var and the Bouches du Rhône touch the Mediterranean coast, and the sixth department, Vaucluse is inland.

What more could one ask for when doing some motorhome travel in France – as close to guaranteed sunshine as you are likely to find, beaches, snowy mountains, national parks and the gastronomy of Provence.  For anyone who knows just a little about France, the word ‘Provence’ alone is enough to evoke idealistic thoughts and send you off hiring a motorhome in England or hiring a motorhome in France to undertake this trip full of delights for all of your senses.

The Alps in the north of the region are perfect for ski-ing in the winter or for hiking in the summer.  For the nature lover, there are national parks such as the Luberon stretching from the Hautes Alpes to Vaucluse and the Mercantour with its many indicated footpaths.

In the south are the resorts of Cannes, Nice and Saint Tropez, very well known even to those who have never set foot in France.  Sunshine and local seafood permanently on offer!

Take to the road and go motorhoming in the Alpes Maritime before making a stop in one of the Aires de Service in the Alpes Maritime and continuing your trip to include motorhoming in the Var.  The perfect way to take in the whole spectrum of pleasures on offer in Provence.
