The Blue Coast by Campervan
Once you’ve discovered Marseille, take the campervan down to the Blue Coast.
On the south side of the Regional Nature Park of the Camargue sits the town of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, to which you can drive.
It’s a great spot, famous for pink flamingos and wild beaches. Oh, and pony trekking if that’s your thing.
South Coast France
Further to the west about 2 hours from Marseille is the vibrant student city of Montpellier. From here you can keep driving west towards the Pyrenees through Narbonne and Perpignan. And further still to make your way to Toulouse in the region of Occitanie.
To the east of Marseille is Saint-Tropez, a well known coastal town on the French Riviera, in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur région. Saint-Tropez is pricey, but well worth a walk around and a long, lazy lunch.
Further east along this stunning part of France, you’ll be able to visit Fréjus, Cannes and Nice.
Driving to Italy by Campervan
Beyond Nice, and a great coastline trip, is the drive to Italy from Marseille. Head towards Genoa - it’s about a 5 hour drive of beautiful sea views and, of course, you can set up camp on the way.
From Genoa head north toward Turin (or Turino) touching the Italian Alps, then head west back into France toward the Ardèche Gorges and then back down to Marseille.
Campervan in Provence
Travelling north from the campervan collection point in Marseille takes you into the region of Provence, where - at the right time of year - you will be surrounded by lavender fields.
We call this campervan county. There are easy drives, peaceful campsites, olive groves, vineyards and picturesque stone buildings. The stuff of campervan holiday dreams!
