France in springtime is simply beautiful. Warm weather, but not too hot for those who prefer it a few degrees cooler than the summer months. The countryside comes into bloom and some of France’s best views become even better!

If you’re planning a city break, then Paris is stunning in the spring. Quieter than some of the other seasons, so shops, restaurants, cafés and other tourist attractions aren’t as busy.

Not far from Paris is the Chateau de Sceaux – The chateau itself serves as a large museum, but if you’re visiting in the springtime then it will be the gardens and cherry blossom orchards that will blow you away.

Some of the more mountainous regions in France are also idyllic in the spring months. Long walks, fresh air and scenery that will amaze – a great way to get away to relax and unwind, exploring at your own pace in your motorhome. The Alps, The Pyrenees, The Jura and many other areas that rise up to higher altitudes will not disappoint.

Don’t forget the world-famous Cannes film festival in May…. Join the many famous faces that flock to this beautiful part of the French Rivera every spring.

France in the summertime has so much to offer. With plenty of coastal beach resorts such as Saint Tropez, Cap d’Antibes or Brittany’s emerald coast, your summer fun destination awaits you.

The Tour de France is a fantastic summer event to follow in your luxury motorhome. Enjoy complete flexibility and beat the crowds at the hotels, by travelling the route in your motorhome.

The summer is also a great time to visit the wine regions in France – Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne and more…. Eat, drink be merry and enjoy the beautiful climate at the same time.

One of our favourite French events, that kick starts the autumn on the last weekend in September is the famous Rocamadour Hot Air Balloon Festival. 30 hot air balloons take to the skies in this breathtaking spectacle.

Paris also hosts autumn its arts festival from September to December, offering a vast selection of performances, shows, concerts, film screenings and more. If you’re interested in the arts, then this is the perfect time to visit France.

There’s something magical about so many parts of France in the winter months…

If you’re looking for winter sports – skiing, snowboarding, hiking, snow walking or more…. Then you’ll be spoiled for choice in France. A motorhome is a brilliant way to enjoy the winter resorts, with everything at your disposal to hit the slopes

There’s also a huge selection of Christmas markets in and around France during November and December. Travel across the border into Germany and get into the festive spirit at one of their many markets.

It would almost be rude not to visit the most romantic city in the world, during the most romantic month of the year – Paris in February is filled with romance and wonder! Take a trip and see for yourself…
