Camping Holidays in French Riviera & Provence
At a Glance
This is where tradition and hedonism live side by side in perfect harmony. You can spend a day in the sleepy medieval villages and deserted pine fringed beaches of unspoilt rural France or get your glad rags and join the beautiful people in the chic coastal towns of Cannes and Nice. You really can enjoy the best of both worlds on a camping holiday to the Riviera and Provence regions - all in the same day!
There’s so much to try in this region, from the traditional Provencal cuisine with its generous portions of stews, pizzas and tapenade, to delicately-flavoured seafood in the sophisticated restaurants of the chic resorts. Or keep things simple with fresh bread and local cheese. But whatever and wherever the meal, it is always best accompanied by a chilled glass of the local rosé.
Breathe in the scent of pine, lemon groves and salt spray. Dive in warm Mediterranean waters or icy glacial lakes. Take a stroll along the Promenade de la Croisette or admire the impressive architecture of Avignon and the magnificent Gorges du Verdon, known as the Grand Canyon of Europe!
Home to millionaires and ageing rock stars, this is a great place for people watching and window shopping. There’s still plenty of charm beneath the glitzy surface, just take a wander through the narrow back streets.
These huge canyons provide a dramatic location for a white water rafting and kayaking adventure. If you prefer something a little less energetic, take a drive along the southern edge where there are lots of stop-off points with amazing views.
The capital of the Alpes-Maritimes boasts a wonderful array of shops, markets and of course beaches. Meander through the narrow streets of the old town, visit one of the great museums, then stroll along the world famous Promenade des Anglais.
This beautiful island is traffic free so you can roam to your heart’s content before choosing your favourite hidden cove for a picnic or a dip.
Protected by 14th century ramparts, this majestic city is filled with galleries and museums. It’s inspired countless artists over the centuries - so don’t forget your sketchbook.
