June to August
It is not so surprising that France is a well-visited country in Europe . With cities such as Paris, Nice and Marseille, but also with beautiful nature such as in the Pyrenees and the Alps, this is a versatile country. And if that’s not enough, you also have the Côte d’Azur. Where you can relax on the beach. We also love this beautiful country, and our first road trip with the caravan went through France. Something we can recommend to everyone!
Transport to France
Although most people travel to France from Belgium and the Netherlands by car, caravan or camper , you can also do this easily and cheaply by plane. Nowadays you can already find a single ticket to Marseille, Bordeaux, Carcassonne and Rodez for less than 20 euros per person. This is very dependent on the season. The ticket price for Paris and Nice often starts around 50 euros. A good and ecological alternative to the plane is of course the TGV train to Paris . The price for this starts, depending on the season, around 35 euros.
Transportation in France
Most cities in France have an excellent metro and tram network. The bus network in these cities is also more than in order. However, for further distances you will have to take a train . These are also very reliable in France and above all affordable. Although you can’t get everywhere by public transport. Certainly not in the region of the Alps. With a car you also see more and get further. You can do this with your own car or with a rental car. The price for a decent rental car starts from 30 euros per day. Are you going on holiday with your own car? Be sure to take the toll roads into account.
Besides delicious baguettes and croissants, France has a lot more to offer. Such as croque monsieur, ratatouille, coq au vin and quiche lorraine. And with all these delicious dishes you can of course also drink one of the delicious wines that this country has. In addition, each region has its own specialty and regional product. Saint-Tropez, for example, has its own Tropezienne Pie. A delicious cake that owes its name to Brigitte Bardot. And so there are many other regional products in France. Can you discover them all? Eating in France is possible from 15 euros per day, but can go up to 120 euros per day. This depends very much on what your budget is.
In France you have a wide range of different accommodations. So you have a typical French gî t e . But also a bungalow park or a glamping. You can rent all these accommodations for an average price of 100 euros per night. In addition, you can of course also book a hotel room, b&b or Airbnb. The prices for this vary greatly from hotel to hotel and from region to region. It is therefore very difficult to put a fixed price on this. Although the most popular way of staying overnight in France is perhaps a campsite. For this you pay an average of 30 euros for a pitch.
And without a doubt, we found those too. You’ll find our favorite spots of Normandy here!
