Here’s some essential information for campervan travellers in Marseille
Our depot is located in Châteauneuf-les-Martigues, at only half an hour from Marseille’s city centre and at 20 minutes from Marseille Provence Airport (MRS). Are you starting a road trip in Marseille? If you arrive by airplane, we’ll pick you up at Marseille Provence Airport and take you to our depot, where we’ll get you familiar with your campervan. After returning your campervan at our Marseille depot, we’ll drive you back to the airport. Free of charge in regular hours, of course.
Street parking is limited in Marseille’s busy centre and its car parks are inaccessible to campervans, making parking in the city centre very hard. The best option is to park your campervan in the outskirts of the city and use public transportation.
You’ll find a few camping sites near Marseille for your campervan. Camping Garlaban is located at the edge of the Calanques, while Camping Le Mas and Camping Marius are located on the Côte Bleue. Camping Félix de la Bastide sits furthest west along the Étang de Berre Lagoon. The camping sites may not be in the city centre but they’re close to both Marseille and nature.
France’s largest port and oldest city, Marseille is a gritty kind of pretty, ancient but not outdated, and surrounded by a sprawl of amazing green gorges, teetering cliffs, and France’s famous Provence.
Over a timespan of two millennia, cities come and go. Not Marseille; it’s been here for over 2,600 years! Best known as a bustling seaport at the crossroads of the Mediterranean, the docks of Marseille see tons of trade, commerce and industry. But being a modern port city also adds an element of urban grittiness. Up to a decade or two ago, Marseille even had a bit too much grit for the casual holiday-goer. Today’s Marseille, however, hits the sweet spot. Renewed and revitalised, the city shows its best sides of maritime history, Hausmannian grandeur, and Mediterranean hospitality, all while keeping a tang of urban tough. Multicultural Marseille is not just the right city for the urban adventurer, it’s also a great launch pad for nature lovers heading for the Calanques or Verdon Gorge. And the further your road trip takes you, the better it gets. Hire a campervan in Marseille and visit van Gogh’s Provençe, or make for the French Riviera, before heading into Italy!
