VisionTech goes Continental
We had always spoken about doing a summer trip around Europe, so when the crossing was booked we began doing some research. We packed our LWB T5 up ready for an adventure. We had not booked anywhere, which may be a risk, but it seemed to pay off.
We chose Fussen as our first stop as had heard it was a beautiful little town in the German mountains, known to many as ‘Bavaria’s hidden gem’. We then went onto Lake Garda, then onto ‘Lago di Ledro’, which was a much smaller lake not too far away. Beautiful to swim in, and a nice campsite close to the man made beach. The Boys did a spot of mountain biking whilst us girls relaxed by the water.
We decided to head off to the french Riviera very early the next morning which was a good idea mainly due to heavy traffic and the heat! It was a sight to behold watching the sun come up as we left Lake Garda.
We headed to the french coast through Monaco, into Nice then onto Agay, our final destination before heading home. This small town was perfect to kick back after a few intense days/ nights of driving. We took pot luck and found a beautiful beach front campsite called Royal Camping which was amazing. Very clean, with a local shop and gorgeous child friendly beach.
I would recommend bikes to get to the main strip of Agay. This took us about 15 minutes.
We decided to ditch our van for the day and hire a speed boat. We were able to head all the way through to Nice and smaller islands in and around. We took a pack lunch of delights that we picked up that morning from the local market. When you drive in and out of Agay, there are beautiful vineyards everywhere, as it was quite mountainous. I would recommend the local wine to anyone!
We allowed ourselves a few days to head back towards the Euro crossing, heading to our favourite small city “Dijon”, which is the perfect half way stop. Once we got there we knew we had a mere 5 hour trip back to the Euro Tunnel.
We loved this holiday so much that we will be going on our 3rd adventure through Europe next year, and always returning if only for a few days to the very beautiful Agay.
