Camping Holidays in Provence
Unforgettable camping in France’s premier campsite destination
Provence is often considered to be France’s go-to destination for campers and holiday-makers - and for good reason.
Located on the south-east coast of France (the Cote d’Azur), the region borders Italy in the east and meets with the Alps in the north - offering a remarkably diverse landscape. Exploring this part of France, including the French Riviera and unspoilt Provencal countryside is what summer-time camping trips are made for.
Come with your family and experience camping in Provence; on the coast, in the countryside or in the mountains. We offer one superb campsite in Provence and a wealth of high-quality mobile homes in which to base yourself:
What does Provence have to offer campers?
Camping on the French Riviera
The Mediterranean coast of France - known as the ‘French Riviera’ - takes in some of the south of France’s most glamorous resorts; including St. Tropez, Cannes, Nice and the principality of Monaco. Away from the coast, campers can visit great towns like Grasse with its many perfumeries or Biot, which is world famous for its extraordinary glass blowing.
Provence has long been known for its regional dishes, all of which have a very strong Mediterranean influence. Many dishes served in Provence are specific to the region and include dishes like Bouillabaisse, a seafood stew made with up to six different types of local fish and shellfish seasoned with Provencal herbs.
Other popular dishes associated with Provence are Salad Niçoise and Provencal Pizza - both of which definitely require a spot on your Provence camping holiday menu!
Natural Attractions on the Cote d’Azur
Famous painters including Matisse, Picasso and Van Gogh fell in love with the region of Provence for its beauty. Years later, the same breathtaking scenery keeps family-campers coming back to the region year-on-year.
Verdon Gorge is considered to be the most beautiful river gorge in Europe and attracts a huge number of tourists every summer. A favourite day trip with family campers is to Palud-Sur-Verdon, an attractive village with museum and vantage points with panoramic views of the gorge.
Provence is host to various festivities throughout the summer months. July sees the whole city of Avignon turn into a public stage for theatre, street performers and parades. If you time it right, we recommend that you squeeze into your camping trip an excursion to The Lamb and Ram fair, which takes place in St. Christol early in August - creating a spectacle of hundreds of fluffy sheep and rams.
Getting to Provence
Its enduring popularity with campers and holidaymakers of all types has made Provence one of the best connected regions in France . The area is well connected to the UK and Ireland with Nice Airport serving as a main gateway. There are also daily flights from UK airports to Marseilles and Nimes. Self-drive via the channel ports is also a viable option, with an overnight stop en route adding to the holiday experience.
The best way to experience Provence?
Provence’s popularity is a double-edged sword - holiday cottages and hotels can be extremely expensive. In our opinion, staying at a Provence campsite provides a much better value-for-money option and Lacs du Verdon is one of the finest in the area.
In our range of static mobile homes, you’ll find all the mod cons you would expect, with some that might even surprise you. It’s the perfect place to base your family for your new Provence camping adventure!
