Driving through France has always been seen as a challenge, I hear stories from other families about how long they drove for, day and night in many cases, to get to their holiday destination. As for myself, I have ‘challenged’ myself on many occasions and dragged my family along on these challenges.
To help myself, my poor stricken family and many of you, I have put together 3 routes through France that will help you start your holidays in France, Spain or Italy in a more leisurely way and experience more of the sights, smells and people as you drive through.
Route 1 – South of France – Alps, Cote D’Azur, Provence and Italy
A driving route from Calais through the Champagne region, Burgundy, Lyon and on the Alps and the South of France, stopping there or continuing to Italy. Driving across Eastern France – Route 1.
Route 2 – South France – Languedoc, Dordogne, Limousin, Midi-Pyrenees and Barcelona, Spain
An alternative route through France goes through central France, skirting around Paris, Orleans and through to the Massif Central and to the Tarn Valley. Driving across Central France – Route 2
Route 3 – South France – Vendee, Charente Maritime, Bordeaux and Biarritz
An alternative route through France starts at Cherbourg and heads south towards Nantes, Cognac, Bordeaux and further south to the Pays Basque. Driving across Western France – Route 3.
I am Will Goodridge, I founded ISpyCamping.com in 2010, a comparison website for family camping holidays across Europe.
This is my camping blog. My stories from camping trips, either with my family exploring different locations or on my own as I meet the people who own campsites and holiday parks around Europe.
As a dad of two young children, I get to experience the highs and lows of family holidays like everyone else and see at first hand what works and what doesn’t.
