Motorhome Rental Marseille

Home to the largest port in France, Marseille holds the title of France’s oldest city, yet it is far from old-fashioned. Surrounded by lush greenery and high cliffs, it is the heart of Provence and home to the Calanques, unusual rocky inlets which line the coast. Many cities cease to exist after 2,000 years, but not Marseille, which has survived more than 2,600 years of history!

Known throughout the centuries as a thriving port town in the heart of the Mediterranean, the city and its port have welcomed thousands of traders from all over the world. Nowadays, the city’s older character has been toned down and mixed with an urban and ultra-cosmopolitan vibe, giving the city a retro-modern feel that you’ll have the opportunity to experience if you hire a motorhome in Marseille.

Twenty years ago, Marseille was not one of the more popular Mediterranean cities, but now it is one of the most sought after. Redesigned and revitalised, Marseille is a fusion of Haussmannian architecture with a multicultural urban feel. Rich in Mediterranean hospitality, the city is home to the vibrant Old Port and its pleasure craft.

Being the ideal city for urban adventurers does not make it any less ideal, as a campervan hire in Marseille is a perfect starting point for a road trip through the heart of nature in the Calanques or Gorges du Verdon.

Getting to Marseille

Marseille is a rather well-connected city. The Marseille-Provence airport is France’s fifth-largest airport, with 33 airlines offering flights to around 120 European destinations. Marseille-Saint-Charles is the city’s main train station and is located right in the city centre. If you choose not to hire a campervan in Marseille, then this station links the city to Paris Gare de Lyon by TGV in just 3 hours.

International connections are mainly provided by TGV, AVE and Thalys, providing access to cities such as Frankfurt, Geneva, Brussels and Barcelona.

Parking in Marseille

If you choose to rent a campervan in Marseille, please be aware that parking spaces are limited, especially in the city centre. Underground car parks are off-limits to campers due to the height restrictions. We, therefore, advise you to park your van on the outskirts or on a campsite and to visit the city using public transport.

Annual Events in Marseille

Here are some events that might interest you if you decide to hire a campervan in Marseille:

  • Marseille Fête de la Musique: the 21st of June is always a day for partying and celebration in Marseille, with an array of music concerts and shows being held all over the city.
  • Marsatac (11th, 12th, 13th June 2021): the festival that brings together hip-hop, rock, and electronic music from Marseille, and with an atmosphere that is a draw for many artists.
  • Fiesta des Suds (October): a world music festival that lasts about ten days and takes place around mid-October. It generally attracts nearly 50,000 people.

Camping in Marseille

Before you hire a motorhome in Marseille, make sure you book a spot on a campsite in advance.

  • Camping du Garlaban: this 3-star campsite in Aubagne is open from mid-March to early November. You can choose between camping in nature or on a pitch equipped with electricity and water. It is also suitable for people with reduced mobility. The rate per night varies depending on the time of year.
  • Camping les Cigales: at a 15-minute walk from Cassis and its beaches, this campsite is suitable for people with reduced mobility. You can have a hot shower, get something to eat, and use it as a base for visiting the Calanques of Cassis. Free Wi-Fi access. The price is €10.28/night.
