The next morning we left Sommiers and went to Arles. We parked up and walked into the centre to see the Roman Ampitheatre (see photos) which was amazing and bigger than we had imagined. We spent most of the day in Arles so we decided to keep on heading out of the centre and whilst stuck in traffic I looked for an Aire to stay that night. We drove through the centre of Marseille which we were looking forward to but we found out about half an hour later whilst still stuck in the Marseille traffic that it was so commercial and didn’t really have much in the way of tourist attractions.

We found an Aire called Caux-le-pins where there were already a few motorhomes parked up, to cut a long story short we had a good laugh watching a frenchman try and park a massive motorhome right next to us and then fail to see the side of the mountain and smash the back panel in, hilarious. His wife didn’t sound too pleased and I’m sure there were a few french swair words in there too!

  1. Just had to tell you I have been looking for advise on campers and using them. So much information and I love your "What does it cost",It's given me food for thought.
    I am retiring in 2 years or being made redundant in the next 6 months and I can't wait to get on the road.
    Please keep up the good work
