 HISTORICAL TOURS IN FRANCE BY MOTORHOME, £11.99

      The Historical Tours in France guide covers the 19 former regions of France, from Brittany in the north west to Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur in the south-east. These 45 history themed tours have been researched and planned for a motorhome, visiting locations that I hope you will find interesting & picturesque whilst transporting you back to a France of yesteryear. The tours range from times as recent as WWII, back through Napoleonic times to the middle ages & on to the Roman occupation of France.

      Some of the 45 tours have previously been published in either my Northern or Southern France tours guides, but this book contains 19 new tours & the previously published tours have all been updated & revised.

     The tours have been researched and planned for a motorhome but unfortunately the majority of campsites in France tend to open only during the summer months, with some of the Municipal campsites only opening in July and August. This would tend to restrict the timing of these tours, so they have primarily been planned using all-year-round aires as stopover places – with alternative campsites suggested, if preferred (and if they are open). As some ‘motorhomers' may never have stayed at an Aire de Services, there is a chapter explaining their facilities and how to use them.

     France is the perfect country to visit in a motorhome, RV or campervan. The roads are often traffic free, there are almost 10,000 campsites and over 4,000 aires, the car parks are mainly free and, unlike in the UK, overnight parking in a motorhome is subject to few restrictions. In addition to the above, France is the most visited tourist destination in the world, with many historic towns and villages, great beaches, picturesque mountain scenery and much more. 

     The guidebook has detailed descriptions of each location visited together with tourist information, route maps, photos, detailed directions & GPS coordinates. Full information is given on each aire visited as well as a review, facilities, prices, opening times as well as alternative nearby campsites. Examples of a tour from the book can be found in the Motorhome Tours page & see below for the index of the guide.

The Guide contains 45 Tours, over 360 pages, over 200 photos & 45 pages of maps. The book has:

  • Detailed descriptions & Reviews of stopovers

  • Services available & No. of pitches

  • GPS Coordinates & Directions

  • Photos & Location Maps

  • Opening times & Prices

  • 45 Detailed Tours
