The Ultimate Campervan holiday in the south of France

Written by on April 7, 2017 in Provence-Alpes, Tours in France

Imagine, you arrive in the south of France, collect your fabulous campervan from Cookies Campers and take a tour, discovering the beauty of the area and the freedom of the open road. With a campervan it’s possible to park up close to the most beautiful beaches and stop off at the most picturesque villages. Shop at the colourful street markets and buy fresh produce and a delicious just baked baguette. Head back to your campervan, find an idyllic picnic spot, pull out the chairs and tables and indulge in a moment of perfection…

Glampervan experience in the south of France

Cookies Campers based in Antibes, hire out brand new, top of the range VW California campervans. They’re absolutely perfect for a road trip holiday in this most beautiful part of France, and it’s not for nothing that they’re known as glampervans – they’re comfy to drive and are a luxurious way to tour.

You’ll find that campervans are welcome in France and you’ll have a huge selection of camp sites to choose from with great facilities including swimming pools. Plus there are hundreds of aires including at St Tropez and Nice which offer free parking areas, giving you freedom to travel like no other holiday. You can visit where you want, when you want and there’s no rushing back to your accommodation at night cutting short the opportunity to explore and experience the area at your leisure. Many places become less crowded in the early evening as the tourist coaches depart, leaving you to enjoy sunset in iconic towns, on the beach or somewhere with a view that will be etched in your memory for ever.

The choice is yours

Will you cruise to Saint Paul de Vence, a perched town with winding steps and pretty shops and art galleries or to Eze with its stunning views over the Mediterranean Sea and Monaco. Will you park and go for a dip in a secluded bay and then enjoy a chilled glass of wine from the campervan’s fridge as you decide whether to stay or move on and take in another fabulous town or chic resort.

You won’t be able to resist opening the windows as you drive past fields of lavender, poppies or sunflowers, in fact why not pull over and take your lunch surrounded by the sights and scents that fill the air.

The VW California is a truly luxurious campervan accommodating up to a family of four in comfort. Multiple media connections mean you can link your mobile devices to the music and Blue Tooth systems.  Chairs pop out of the tailgate, tables slides out of the side door, the roof pops up for a comfy second bed and the front seats rotate to rear seats – great for family meals together (there’s even a fridge and a cooker).

Andrew Cook at Cookie’s Campers will happily recommend campsites and route stops to help you make the very most of your discovery of the French Riviera and the south of France.

The great outdoors

Touring with a Cookies campervan gives you freedom like no other holiday. There are no timetables to keep, no restrictions, no reservations to mak. It’s up to you when and where you stop somewhere amazing and open the doors and explore, relax and indulge in the moment.

There’s nothing quite like enjoying your just baked croissants from a charming boulangerie out in the fresh air as the sun climbs in the deep blue sky. You don’t have to be out of the room at a certain time, you can just relax and enjoy the freedom of choosing whether you want to move on or stay.

Living the dream

Take a tour on the open road in the south of France and discover fun in the sun, the glory of southern France and the freedom of a holiday that’s designed to suit you.

Book your dream tour at Cookies Campers and discover the south of France at your own pace.
