Spring is nearly upon us, here’s our March & April availability update

14 Feb

A sunny evening walk near the France Motorhome Hire depot reminded us that spring is nearly here.  Here’s our monthly update on spring availability…

It’s already light until after 6pm here in France, and it feels quite “springy” suddenly. I took this sunny photo at 5.30pm last night whilst walking in the Forêt d’Othe near our village of Véron.

The Mayor’s team are already out pollarding the plane trees that line the road to our depot – just as well as it’s much easier for novice campervan drivers to navigate past heavily pruned trees than free range ones! Here are the before and after photos of the pollarding – they look pretty naked once done, but will soon offer a dense, green canopy for the rest of the year.

It won’t be long before blossoms appear in the trees and the roads are lined with enchanting spring flowers. Whether you plan to drive past chateaux in France flanked by daffodils or past windmills in Holland surrounded by tulips, March and April is a great time for a motorhome trip and we still have some vehicles available for this spring.

If you have a couple of weeks for your motorhome trip Holland makes for a great spring destination
