We are based just 360 kilometres from the border with Switzerland and the route between here and there is peppered with wonderful French highlights so if you visit this lovely country, you will have plenty to see on the way there and back.

Between the FMH depot and Switzerland are the historic towns of Auxerre, Beaune, Dijon and Dole as well as a number of famous Burgundy wine regions, the Medieval villages of Noyers and Flavigny, the fairytale castle at Chateauneuf-en-Auxois and the ancient Abbey of Fontenay.

Once you get into Switzerland, it really is as chocolate-box stunning as the photos suggest and the whole country feels clean, wholesome and beautifully maintained. There is much to see there and the tourism board have come up with a really useful driving route so now you can plan a road trip through the country in minutes. Grand Driving Tour of Switzerland. Like everything else in Switzerland, the tourism web site is well organised and has some really inspirational photos that will make you long to explore. A client who purchased a motorhome from us earlier in the year has written some really useful tips for visiting Switzerland in a campervan and you can read her blog on our vehicle sales website.

There is a lot to see and do in Switzerland so don’t try and fit it into a short trip. We suggest a minimum of two weeks to allow time to enjoy the journey east through Burgundy then sample life over the Swiss border. Needless to say, if you have longer, you could easily spend a month there and still not do it justice!
