Visit the city of light in your motorhome and stay at The Paris Campsite

Can I stay in Paris in my motorhome?

January 9, 2019

The short answer is “No” because motorhomes are banned from parking in the city. However, The Paris Campsite at The Bois de Boulogne is now a viable option for overnight stays in your motorhome and you can easily visit the city of light from there.

The Paris Campsite has been refurbished and now provides the perfect base for motorhome owners to visit Paris

This campsite: https://www.campingparis.fr/en/ used to be a bit of no go area and had tricky transport links into Paris but it has undergone a big makeover over the last couple of years and we think it is now a great place to base yourself for a city break.

Prices for a motorhome pitch range from €27 to €40 per night and the campsite now offers a very convenient shuttle bus service which runs every half hour to and from Porte Maillot in the city between 08:30 and 12:30 then again from 17:30 to 23:15. It takes about 15 minutes and they charge just a few euros per person for the shuttle.

If you decide to cycle from Bois de Boulogne into central Paris, you might want to avoid The Arc de Triomphe!

You can also cycle into central Paris and last time we did it took us about 45 minutes from the campsite to Boulevard Haussmann. To be honest, I’m not sure I’d do this again as I found cycling in Paris pretty terrifying but if you are used to city cycling you might enjoy it. If you do attempt it, try to find a route avoiding The Arc de Triomphe (which is where I Iost my appetite for cycling in Paris – it is totally bonkers!).

Take your campervan to Paris and explore the wonderful sights such as Notre-Dame

With the shuttle bus service, The Paris Campsite at the Bois de Boulogne offers a great solution for visiting Paris in a campervan, and you can get to any city address easily using the Metro system once at Porte Maillot. However, if you are going to Disneyland Paris or Charles de Gaulle airport, both of which are the opposite side of the city, we would recommend either staying in the Disneyland car park (they charge about €45 per night for motorhomes) or at the very nice Jablines International campsite, if you go between April and November (€30 to €50 per night with shuttle bus to Disneyland).

Your motorhome interior is probably bigger than most Paris hotel bedrooms!

If you do head for Paris in your campervan, don’t forget to get your “Crit’ Air” windscreen sticker before you go to avoid a fine when entering the low emissions zone.
