Latest Customer Review:

We hired a Avis low profile 2 berth van – which was just perfect and nearly new. We would is like to thank Andy for all the help provided. This was our first time in a camper but now we have the bug and have started planning next years trip. On the question on campsites we would recommend Campsite de la Côte des Nacres the site is very clean and is also a good base for some outdoor hiking with Bavella Mountain close by.

La Côte d’Or:

Stretches just 60kms but is unmissable for wine lovers, who will appreciate the rows of terraced vines that rise in tiers along the main highways that take you through the likes of Volnay, Nuits-St-Georges, Gevrey-Chambertain and Marsannay-la-Côte. Popular places for those with campervan to stay at include Chateau de l’Eperviere and Camping des Sources. When one thinks of France, they think of wine without a doubt. Luckily, this journey can begin in pure wine country and paintable scenery as you adventure through uncountable different vineyards each offering it’s own unique tasteful blend. Volnay and Nuits-St-Georges are known for their burgundy wine and promise not to disappoint. Luckily, one can stay relatively close to their resting place for a chance to taste some of the delightful treats this region has to offer. Also appoint a diver that will abstain or take a local coach tour so all the party can enjoy the wine tasting session,

One of France’s most scenic drives sees drivers admiring the mountains of the Alsace-Lorraine. In English it is know as Route of the Ridges and is very popular with cyclists, hikers, and motorcaravanners. Camping Clos de la Chaume and Camping du Centre de Loisirs are popular stop overs sites for campers. It is closed during the winter months and proposals have been put forward to close it one day a week so do check the local tourist information center before setting off. . Stretching 89km thorugh the captivating Vosges Mountains, you will gain elevation of 1,343 meters for some of the best views France has to offer. See the Ballons des Vosges Nature Park for a chance to see beautiful creatures like the Lynx or Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines for it’s world renowned minerals. Rather than hiring a camper you may consider car hire in France to tour these magnificent locations

The French Alps:

Drive along any part of this captivating 740kms route will be forever engrained in your memory as you take in glaciers, snowy mountain tops, larch forests and Alpine uplands. Some parts might only be passable in the height of summer. Campervan sites can be found at Manoir de Maffrecour and Camping Champ du Moulin. When one dreams of snow sports, one of the top places they will think of is the fresh powder of the French alps. World class resorts from spas to snowboarding leaves nothing to the imagination for your holiday. Mont Blanc, the most famous mountain on the alps, is the highest Western European mountain and seperates France and Italy. The French alps are so large they actually stretch across Switzerland and Italy to create such a jaw dropping sight. Be careful in winter, though – as the roads can be very dangerous! Come prepared and prepare well.

Safe Driving Essentials
  • Road network:

France boasts what is arguably the continent’s most developed system of highways, with petrol stations abundant regardless of where you are in the country.

  • Speed limits:

Urban roads:50kph Provincial roads:80-130kph National roads and motorways:110-130kph

  • Alcohol limits:

0.05 per cent. Highways and roads are regularly policed and fines are heavy for violators.

  • Safety:

Driving is on the right-hand side, with companies such as the AA responding quickly to breakdowns. Local drivers can be reckless, often speeding and attempting to overtake dangerously. Don’t consider using a handphone as you drive in France.

  • Cost of fuel:

Expensive, so drive your RV at a steady speed and plan the optimum route(s) to save on fuel.

French Weather Overview & Map
France has a pleasant climate, except in the mountainous Alsace region, which has a semi-continental climate with cold winters and hot summers. The rest of the country never gets particularly cold and rarely sees snow, though rain is common, especially in the northwest coastal region of Brittany. The southern Mediterranean coast is the driest part of the country and experiences the most pleasant weather year round, with mild winters and warm summers, though it can rain heavily here in the spring. Some cities in the Alsace region, such as Colmar, are mostly dry. On the whole, the weather in France is most favourable in summer, though spring is also pleasant. View Larger Map

Great experience again , the camper which we got was a compact Globescout Fiat Ducati and was in excellent quality. The service provided by the Black Sheep staff in Lyon was good as well. My wife and I look forward to more trips to Europe. Next time we are thinking of booking a Volkswagen California style camper. Jean-François Colin
