When it comes to motorhome holidays, you essentially have the option to travel wherever you want. The world is your oyster, and chances are that you will have a huge variety of comforts available with you to enjoy for the duration of your stay. If you want to enjoy the delights that continental Europe can provide you, then France is a great choice that’s within easy reach of the UK. The country has a whole host of beautiful towns and cities to enjoy, including Marseille, which nestles on the Southern coast of France.
Marseille is the second largest city in France after Paris, and one of the key trading ports for the country. A unique settlement, the city was once known as Massalia and was a Hellenic city, as opposed to being a Gallic or Roman city. Throughout history, the city has changed hands many times, from the Romans to the Visigoths to the Aragonese, who razed the city, though it was re-built into an important coastal city, something that it remains to this day. It is highly important for trade and tourism, and is set in a beautiful location. Both the city itself and the surrounding areas are highly popular with tourists and campers.
There are a huge number of designated sites dotted across and close to Marseille for every camper to enjoy. Camping Le Masis is a popular family campsite located on the Cote Bleue with beautiful views of the sea, and facilities including a restaurant and a shop. It’s a small distance away from Marseille, but boasts a key location with relatively easy access to beautiful cities such as Arles and Saint-Remy-de-Provence, making it perfect for those who don’t just want to stay in one place for too long. Camping du Garbalan is located close to Marseille and the Marcel Pignol hills, and is also a short distance away from Cassis, a small and beautiful fishing town. It has a number of amenities including a shop, an ironing area and a sprawling playing field. Camping Ceyreste is 20 miles away from Marseille, lying beside the beautiful village of Ceyreste, boasting a huge number of amenities, secure sites and an array of different activities. Camping Les Mouettes offers views of the glittering Mediterranean Sea, within distance of Marseille, Martigues and a wonderful area of French villages and towns.
These are just a handful of the many camping sites throughout Provence and close to Marseille. These locations are sure to provide you with an excellent and memorable motorhome holiday, which is definitely something to consider as summer continues to approach.
