VISITING PARIS

        IN A MOTORHOME

 

Capital cities, with their associated traffic problems

& congestion, are not always at the top of your

average motorhomers list of favourite places to stay

and Paris is probably no exception but to miss out on

the many & varied attractions that Paris has to offer

would be a shame. Whilst there are no suitable aires

within a reasonable distance of the French capital,

there are a few decent campsites that can give you a

combination of good accommodation together with

an acceptable journey time on public transport into

the centre of the city avoiding the hassle of the city

centre traffic. We have reviewed five campsites that

we consider to offer the best in the way of a good

quality site within a reasonable traveling time (by public transport).
