May in The South of France

I've always enjoyed the South of France in May.

Whether for star-gazing at the Cannes Film Festival, unique street-racing at the Monaco F1 Grand Prix, or a stroll along the Promenade des Anglais before it gets too crowded - or too hot.

When I was younger, I remember disembarking from the night-train at Nice and feeling in a whole new world; waking up to to a light that had so inspired Matisse.

It does sometimes rain on the Cote d'Azur at this time of year but when it does, as it did the other weekend, it may be sunny over in Var - from Toulon to Marseille; ideal for a drive along the coast and possibly a visit to Château d'If and and Frioul Islands.

You may even arrive early enough to see the morning's catch being sold at the Vieux Port.

Now where will I go in June?

Travel south for Roman civilisation and the sparkling blue Med; indulge your jet-set fantasies in balmy Nice and St-Tropez. I love this camp site and its facilities, the gentle day-time ambiance, and have nothing but praise for Canvas Holidays’ tents and its helpful couriers.
