When the idyll reaches its peak! Go back 500 years in Alsace and be glad this town survived all the wars. Take a small boat on the canal that runs through the town or head out to the vineyards around the town.

    Thank you for your travelogue...makes me want to go away.
    Second year as HB owner.

    We are in our third season with hb and have been mostly in denmark, but now we think it's time to spread our wings to the south such as cancale that we have read so much about.What is most convenient to drive we have 4 weeks on us, are there many roads along the coast that do not take heavy vehicles, we have 4.2 tonnes or something else that prevents such as height.mvh kaj

    What an exciting life you live 🙂 We have started thinking about where the next trip should go, and here I got a lot of inspiration! We love France and have travelled all around the country, but not in the outer edges of the country, and not to Corsica. I get excited about the west coast when I see your photos. However, the kids have taken a liking to Italy and Patrick wants to go back to the US. Many desires, so we will see where it ends, but it will definitely be a round trip because we like to look around and experience a lot when we travel.

    Thomas Majlöv, great that you discovered motorhome life! France is one of our favourite countries in Europe, highly recommended!

    Kaj Jensen, how nice that you are planning to go south and we can highly recommend France! We did not think about weight rules when driving (our car is 3.5 tonnes). We had no particular problems with heights, even though our car is tall (3.10 metres).

    Anette, when you are several, you have to adjust somehow... 😉 France is one of our favourite countries in Europe actually, and a little cheaper than Italy. Hope you find a nice destination!

    Hi, sounds nice with France! Thinking about a trip of about a month now in November. Is that month ok or is it as closed as it is here at home? Grateful for tips:))

  6. admin says:

    Marie Aaröe-Holm, great trip to France! I can't say for sure, but I don't think it's very hot. Then it might depend on where you are in France. On the west coast, I think it can be quite chilly. At the Riviera it is probably relatively mild by Scandinavian standards. Perhaps it can be pleasant during the day, but colder at night. Sun and bathing holidays probably won't work, but if you just want a slightly milder climate than at home, you'll probably get it. But feel free to google the weather and climate in France in November too!

    We are a small family with a 13-year-old boy and our big poodle Bosse. Now we are going on a train trip to the south of France.

    On the way home we would like to stop in smaller villages by train and see some of the nice picturesque parts. Do you have any tips? We are going to Hamburg and are open to French suggestions.
