Campervan Hire Marseille

#fromthemountainstothesea

Bonfire Vans have campervans for hire from Marseille and Marseille Airport (also known as Marseille Provence Airport). Marseille Airport is situated 27 kilometres northwest of the city and is a popular location to start your campervan holiday in the French Riviera and beyond.

Hiring from here enables you to cruise through some of the most stunning sites in France. You can camp on the beautiful southern coastline or head inland to surround yourselves with lavender fields and ancient ruins. Provence is a beautiful area; it’s true campervan country.

Which Campervans Can You Hire in Marseille?

Depending on your camping style, we have four campervans for you to choose from in Marseille.

The best value is our two-person Van Baxter which sleeps two people but can drive four people. Great for picking up friends to join you on an adventure.

Then there’s the Van Baxter Rooftop campervan - that is great for a family of four or four friends. The rooftop tent is attached to the roof, providing extra sleeping space. If you want more room, this is also a good choice for the two of you.

After that, Bonfire Vans also have an off-grid range that consists of four-wheel-drive campervans fitted with solar panels, meaning you can sleep on Provence beaches or coastline whenever you want.

Check out our Cali Beach Off-Grid.

About Marseille, France

Marseille is a port city in southern France, on the Mediterranean coast. It is the third largest city in France (after Paris and Lyon) and known well in the Provence region. The city is beautiful, with lots to discover if you decide to stay local to Marseille with your campervan hire.

Foodies should check out Le Marché des Capucins, the best market in Marseille selling spices, fish and well priced fruit and vegetables. All you need to stock up the campervan food stores!

Check out one of the numerous museums such as La Vieille Charité or The MuCEM (Museum of Civilizations of Europe and the Mediterranean) which hosts cracking events like the International Film Festival and some world art exhibitions.

Head just out of town and discover The Massif des Calanques, a wild and rugged gorge. Just after the campervan collection point, there is a lovely view point which makes a good stop off location.

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!

Getting to Marseille and Transfer Details

Bonfire Vans can deliver your hired campervan to you at Marseille Provence Airport or at a nearby train station. Marseille St Charles is the main train station.

We will bring the hired campervan to meet you straight off your flight or train ride, so you can head straight off on your campervan holiday.
