Campsites in Provence: everything on offer!

Within reach of a campsite in Provence, all kinds of experiences are on offer. You could head for the River Verdon to try your hand at no end of watersports, such as canoeing, canyoning, rafting or just good old fishing. Or you could strike out of the campsite on racing bikes or mountain bikes: many racers regard Mont Ventoux (‘Windy Mountain’) as the ultimate climbing challenge.

Naturally, you can recover from your bouts of sporting activity by chilling out for a day on one of the many gorgeous beaches along the Côte d'Azur just south of here.

It’s not just around the campsite that there’s plenty on offer: all ages are excellently catered for at a Provence campsite, too. Campsites in Provence are beautiful and often boast their own swimming pool (with slide), children’s playground, and a range of sport and games facilities.

Sights in Provence

If you come on a holiday in Provence, you can go off on some great day trips you’re your campsite. Provence is conveniently close to a number of major southern French cities that exude the Mediterranean feel. Three cities we’d like to suggest are:

  • Marseille
    Founded as a Greek colony, Marseille (sometimes ‘Marseilles’ in English) is France’s very oldest city and its second biggest. It remains an authentic port city, one of the Mediterranean’s busiest. Thanks to the thousands of years of history here, the city is bursting with old sights.
  • Nice
    Nice (pronounced ‘neess’), on the Côte d’Azur, pulls in the tourist crowds year after year. You shouldn’t miss a stroll down the beach boulevard, the Promenade des Anglais. The old city centre (Vieux Nice) has plenty more fun sights.
  • Toulon
    Toulon is another major port of the South of France and is the French Navy’s main base. It has an attractive medieval centre dotted with cosy squares and terrace cafés. Climb Mont Faron to enjoy fantastic panoramas over the city.

 

Camping in the French countryside

Camping in Provence is hugely to be recommended to anyone who loves unspoilt nature. The Provence landscape is characterised by rolling hills and actual mountains interspersed with extensive plains. In Provence, you’ll find vineyards, olive groves and of course the deep purple lavender fields that make it such a picturesque region.

You can also visit one of a number of nature reserves while staying at a Provence campsite. The Camargue, for instance, is an area of marshland in the Rhône Delta on the southern French coast that is celebrated for its wild herds of white horses, its flocks of migrant birds and most amazingly of all its pink flamingos.
