France

Informatie

France is pre-eminently the country of beautiful places. It is not without reason that France has a list of the most beautiful, historical places that many thousands of holidaymakers use every year.

In January 2016, France implemented a new regional division. We use this format to classify our tips. If you are interested in one of these regions, we may have some tips for you. The map of the regions is shown on the map below.

Camperland

France as a camper country

Info camper

France is a beautiful camper country. There are enough camper places to be found. And if they are not there, it is also possible to spend the night in normal parking spaces, with due observance of the rules.

> With a camper (bus) lighter than 3500 kg, you can park for up to 7 days in parking spaces for passenger cars. Heavier motorhomes will have to move to parking spaces for trucks.

> Signs are often placed along the coasts that allow parking, but prohibit overnight stays. Pay close attention to that.

> It is prohibited to hold a phone while the driver is stationary, even when the vehicle is stationary.

> Please note: as of July 1, 2018, the speed has been reduced from 90 to 80 km / h in two-way roads without central separation (routes nationales and routes départementales) in France !!

Motorland

Info motor

France has many beautiful roads for the touring riders among us. In summer, however, grit is scattered on many secondary roads. Also, the cracks in the roads are often repaired with tar that can be slippery on hot days. So be careful!

> Please note: as of July 1, 2018, the speed has been reduced from 90 to 80 km / h in two-way roads without central separation (routes nationales and routes départementales) in France !!

> Also keep in mind that the motorcyclist, just like the car driver, must have an alcohol tester with him.

> Safety vests are now also mandatory in the suitcase or under a net. And at night wearing this reflective vest is mandatory.

> Driving through traffic jams is prohibited in France.
