Paris to Nantes via Tours Roadtrip

Posted on 20 April 2011

The inland areas of France used to be overlooked in favour of the seaside resorts, now the Loire valley is just as popular due its wonderful Château, mouth-watering cuisine, and delightful sparking wines. This route assumes you’re already spent a fair amount of time in Paris, have done all those important tourist sights, and discovered the delights of the périphérique (hopefully not in your motorhome rental or campervan hire), and now you’re ready to move on to some open roads and pleasant countryside.Pont Wilson, Tours Photo by Tango7174 (wikimedia commons)Day 1.Head south from the city towards Chartres, this is...

Paris to Marseille via Lyon Roadtrip

Posted on 20 April 2011

When you travel from the chic boutiques of Paris to the sunny port of Marseille you notice an enormous difference, in not only the weather, but the architecture and way of life too. If you took the Autoroute and blasted your way to the south you could get there pretty quickly, but you would certainly sacrifice visiting some pretty towns and villages along the way. This route gives you the best of both worlds, a few toll roads where the surroundings aren’t quite so interesting, and a few twisting and turning smaller roads, to test those driving skills...

Bordeaux to Toulouse to Montpellier Roadtrip

Posted on 20 April 2011

On this route you’ll pass though some places which you’ve probably heard of, big clue…smell, and parts of it are going to cause great hilarity, but as you’re old enough to drive you should be more adult about places with funny names; you’ll see.Place de la Comédie, MontpellierPhoto by Fritz Geller-Grimm (wikimedia commons)Day 1.You’ve visited the Musée d'Aquitaine and the Porte des Salinières, and now its time to leave Bordeaux and the west coast for Montpellier. Take the D10 which roughly follows the same route as the Autoroute until Langon. On your left will be the vineyards of...
