French wine is one of the most iconic beverages in the entire world. Such standing has allowed France’s wine-making region of Champagne and a part of Burgundy to be granted “world heritage status” by the United Nations, joining then Bordeaux and St-Emilion.
In addition to their remarkable goods, these regions provide nice landscapes and can allow you to enjoy quiet and beautiful holidays. If you like to live the good life, top notch food and exquisite alcohol, these routes might be your ideal next holidays.
Bordeaux is the biggest and probably most renown wine producing region on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. They mainly produce red wines that are a mix of several varieties. You can make the most of your motorhome trip by organizing a route through famous castles or more little ones.
We particularly advise you to go to St-Emilion which provides the best wines around and offers parking lots for motorhomes and places to stay at night.
The Champagne region has lots to offer and their sparkling wine is just as tasty as the reputation suggests. You will also be able to eat traditional and sophisticated food in cities such as Reims or Epernay. The Cathedral of Reims is also worthwhile to visit if you like dramatic monuments, and will complete your motorhome sightseeing tour perfectly.
Do not forget to bring a few bottles back at home, you won’t regret it !
This area is the world’s leading rose winemaking region but also one of the loveliest places to visit in France due to its pleasant weather and beautiful scenery. You will encounter during your trip all kinds of exceptional vineyards , nice roads to cruise with your motorhome and a lot of things to do. Among them, do not miss the “Carrières de Lumières” in Les Baux de Provence, probably one of the most impressive activity to do out there. Kayak through the Calanques is also one of the best ideas you may have as the landscapes are breathtaking and will allow you to have a break from all the good wine tasted during your journey !
There is no places such as Burgundy to discover the French “Art de Vivre” : Good cuisine, enjoyable wines and nice landscapes await you during this trip. Take the time to visit the Chablis vineyard and the Basilica of Vézelay, which is listed as UNESCO world heritage site.
We advise you to go there during the off peak season to enjoy the quietness of the place while enjoying the best season ta taste wines and to benefit from low rates for the visits !
