    Both the same.

    But at different times of the year.

    I may be wrong, but I don't think it's that big a difference in cost of travel to Spain.

    Hello and welcome to Fun, it depends what part of the year you plan to go, in the Spring /Summer for me France has everything covered.

    Its all a matter of what you prefer and time of year as others have already said.

    We like both. There aren't vast differences in costs - we take the ferry to/from Santander in the winter time, but would travel through France when the weather is good. By the time you've factored in fuel costs/any tolls/wear and tear/overnight stops, it all works out much of a muchness. Costs also depend very much on the time of year.

    No need to go as far as the Costa del Sol anyway if you want to go to Spain - there are plenty of other Spanish costas to explore without going the full length of the country.

    We are currently wintering in the Costa Blanca. If you're looking for sun, I would only do France between May and September. Also many campsites in France do not open before April and close in September. Don't forget that both the south of France and Spain can be unbearably hot in July and August.

    Start choosing where to go by deciding when you want to go and what you like doing.
