Visiting Montpellier, France with your campervan can be a delightful experience. We struggled a little but we found a most convenient spot on Rue de Meric, next to the wonderful “Parc du Domaine de Meric” (43.6317, 3.8896 (lat, lng) | 56 Rue de Méric, 34090 Montpellier, France). The historical city center is 30 minutes walking distance away but you can also walk 5 min to the Line 2 tram station and it takes you to “Place de la Comedie” in 15 min.
Montpellier is famous for the terraced 17th- and 18th-century Promenade du Peyrou, which offers views of the Mediterranean and of the city’s elegant mansions. The Botanical Gardens, founded by Henry IV in 1593, are the oldest in France. Rich in history and beautiful architecture, this city offers a romantic setting but also lots of outdoor learning opportunities for kids.
In France, the parking rules for campervans and other motor vehicles are the same as for cars, except when police have set restrictions. According to French traffic law, you may park your campervan or motorhome at the side of a road.
