Hire a camper van and venture towards beauteous Burgundy, a charming region located just southeast of Paris. Oozing with sophistication, style and romance, layered upon a peaceful country air, Burgundy provides its visitors with the chance to dabble in a spot of French tradition while relaxing and leaving the strain of everyday life far behind.
Burgundy, or Bourgogne as it is known in Europe, is an enchanting region of France lined with flourishing green countryside and quaint villages. It is a place where French food and wine is nothing less than a feast for the pallet, and where history buffs and admirers of architecture are in their element.
Cycle routes weave in between Burgundy’s four main departments; Côte d’Or, Nièvre, Saône-et-Loire and Yonne. Nestled in the heart of this peaceful paradise lies the Morvan National Park, which is a true campervan holiday in itself. But where should you commence your French campervan holiday?
Start your French campervan holiday at the stunning riverside town of Auxerre, with its two magnificent cathedrals. Trickle east, taking in Tonnerre with it’s Fosse Dionne (roman spring pool) then head into the sublime countryside of the northern Burgundy wine region and visit Chablis and Irancy before heading south to Beaune, one of the loveliest towns in Burgundy with it’s multi-coloured roofs topping beautiful historic buildings.
After the sophistication of these towns you could decide to venture further into Burgundy and head straight into the heart, where you’ll stumble upon the wild and magnificent Morvan National Park.
Boasting towering forests, rolling hills and winding lakes, Morvan is an extensive national park that spreads half a million acres across the centre of Burgundy. Park up the campervan and head for the rest on foot and explore the Morvan’s well-marked trails. The rivers Yonne, Cure and Cousin wind their way through the region, in addition to many other stunning waterfalls, lakes and reservoirs. If you’re unsure of taking to the paths of Morvan on your own then join a guided tour or even get involved with a few water sports or fishing activities before your motorhome trip commences once again. You could consider stopping here for a night or two before heading towards Burgundy’s other hidden treasures.
If you’re a true wine lover then you’ll be pleased to hear that Burgundy is home to a whole medley of vineyards; the five main wine regions are Chablis, Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune, Côte Chalonnaise and Mâconnais. Famous for its legacy of both white and red Burgundy wines (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay), Burgundy manages to attract travellers from all around Europe who solely want to experience the rich wine culture.
