More Wanderings through France: Provence & St Tropez

Leaving the Pyrenees behind, we continued through the South of France with the goal to get to our campsite near Monaco. We had both been to Nice and Marseilles several times so didn't feel the need to visit again. However, we had never explored the famed towns and villages inland from coast that we all read about over 20 years ago in Peter Mayle's memoirs.

Cheesed Off: Our Turbulent Journey to Get Through France

After our Eurotunnel journey we arrived in France just before dusk and given that we didn’t want to drive in the dark, we cosied up at a great free aire right near the tunnel entrance. We had no real plans for our route down to Spain, just a general idea that we wanted to get south and that we would pass into Spain on the west side of the Pyrenees so we could visit San Sebastian and Bilbao.
