    Hi folks, we have just bought our first motorhome and will be hitting the road in a couple of weeks. Our itinery will take us to Cahors, carcasonne, sete, over to avignon and maybe down to aix en provence.We will probably use aires in most places but intend to use the campsite in avignon by the river. Has anyone used this campsite? Just wondering what it is like to access as we will be driving out into the surrounding areas on a daily basis for about a week. Any other info regarding campsites or places of interest (hidden gems) in the area we would be delighted to hear about. Cheers all.

    Used to go skydiving in Avignon, really pretty place. Not been for a few years now so can't answer your site question, but I'm sure someone will. Meanwhile, welcome to the fun (y)

    Hi welcome;
    The campsite at Carcassonne is within walking distance of the old city, we used the proper camp site not the Aire and it was great.

    nice site also on way to Avignon at Pont de Garde called La Sousta ( the squirrel, i think ) its 500 meters from the Roman Aqueduct.

    This is getting a bit sad, I've been to Avignon twice in the last few years but stayed away from campsites as I was on my push bike and stayed in hotels. Have a great time but remember many sites close from mid - September onwards.

    Welcome to Fun. The aire at Cahors isn't that good but the site just down the road next to the river is very nice and pretty cheap. About 200 metres back down the road is a carpark and you can get a free bus there straight into the centre of town. (y)
