    Where is your favourite place in France?

    Hoping this summer to leave the shores of Britain for the first time in the van. I have already had some excellent advice but some comments made me realise how much experience there is between all you folks out there. So I was wondering where your favourite place is in France and why?

    So many places it's almost impossible to pick one! St Cirq Lapopie ticks a lot of boxes - pretty village, aire (and campsite for those who prefer) on the banks of the river Lot. We do like visiting the Plus Beaux Villages - pretty villages. They never disappoint.

    I always usually say Provence in these threads but there are many other regions I love also. Provence just has it all though and is a proper summer playground. Cote D'Azur is mad but stunning. Luberon and Vaucluse (A Year in Provence) are just laid back and stunning, Lac St Croix and the Verdon Gorges (amazing) and of course the Alps (Well some of them). We spent most of last summer there and we nearly always end up there every year.

    Having said that. Pyrenees, Brittany, Haute-Savoie, Jura, Ardeche, Lot, Dordogne, Tarn all take some beating.

    Impossible to choose a favourite place in France - so many marvellous places. France is the most motor home friendly country in Europe with numerous free or low cost aires de camping car. The coast can be a bit crowded in summer.

    Almost anywhere inland and in particular the Pyrenees and the Alps the coastal areas get too crowded for us

    Provence, particularly Alpes De Haute and Alpes Maritime tick all my boxes, but there are many other stunning areas too, again already listed in other posts. If you really want to get away from crowds, the Volcan dí Auvergne and especially the Livradois Forez regions are virtually empty and well worth a little explore. Once in a while set sat nav for shortest route, you wonít get anywhere fast, but youíll see what many miss.
    If you want seaside and beaches you just have to live with more crowds. Yeah, more then enough for loads of holidays.

    I agree that France is good in most places,but to narrow it down.
    Not much time Brittany
    Plenty of time Provence
