We love discovering new places and as we ventured into Provence for the first time last season, we were intrigued to find out more. Provence is a wonderful region with fantastic food and drink, beautiful surroundings and a perfect spot if you fancy a truly French experience.
We got the lowdown from one of the team who knows the area well:
#1 – Avignon
Located to the North of Provence, and just over an hour away from our new campsite Domaine des Iscles, ancient Avignon is a must for first time visitors to Provence. The 800 year old walls encircling the city definitely deserve to be explored, and hark back to Avignon’s past as a papal capital. This is also evident in the magnificent medieval fortress and Palais des Papes (Papal Palace) in the interior of the city. When you’ve had your fill of history, take time to explore the pretty cobbled streets and squares, or visit the renowned food market to sample some local delights. If you are holidaying in July you should definitely make a point of visiting Avignon to experience the famous performing arts festival that takes place at this time every year.Details

Sometimes you need time out. The chance to leave everyday stresses behind. A short break is a great way to visit new destinations and experience different things without breaking the bank. Just a few days away can make the world of difference.
Imagine getting back to work with stories of sipping a cocktail while the Mediterranean waves lap nearby, or strolling down the Champs-Elysees, stopping for a French pastry along the way. Sure beats spending the weekend cleaning the house!
Camping might not be the obvious choice for a short break holiday. But with easy access to airports and ferry ports, lots to do and plenty of places to explore; it’s time to think again.Details
