Hi all,
we're thinking of going to France with the van for the first time next year for 2 weeks, and want to include a few nights near Paris. I know its a big ask but I'd love some advice on the following, please:
1. Best Route from Calais to South (Frejus area NOT Agde)
2. Nice sites s.w Paris
3. Can we do Paris - Frejus in a day or will we need another stop (2 drivers)
4. Overnight stop for the way back.
I intend to book direct with sites, following advice on the forums.
Thanks in advance. ;)

1. If best means quickest then straight down the motorway. The tolls are 110 each way from Calais to Frejus.

2 . Camping Beau Village is South side of Paris rather than South west but might suffice if you want to visit the city .

3. Paris Frejus is about 550 miles.

4. Innumerable. Pick one or two from a site guide book depending on where you want to be.

Enjoy your planning

I don't know when you're planning to go, but outside the peak weeks of mid-July to mid-August, there are sites which will cost as little as 10 euros per night using the ACSI Card (www.campingcard.co.uk). Perhaps not in the Frejus area at 10 euros - although here's one which will cost just 12 euros per night between 25/04 - 27/06 and again from 24/08 - 30/09 - and included in that you can take three under six year olds! That's for the pitch, car and caravan, awning, and electricity (and people)! Camping Le Vaudois

I know your ferry is likely to be expensive and there are few ways of reducing that, short of using Tesco vouchers and the tunnel, so perhaps a saving on sites might be worth considering.

Hi crazy guider, If you have only got a fortnight, does it have to be all the way to Frejus?

From where you live to Frejus and back via Dover-Calais is 1900 miles - that's going to be six big days driving out of your fortnight. Can you squeeze a few more days away, or perhaps go somewhere nearer ?

For your first trip to France from your address in Somerset the ferry from Poole to Cherbourg and a holiday on the western side of France would be a whole lot easier.

Good luck with it either way.
