Here at Priory Rentals all our motorhomes are available to travel abroad. So whether your thinking of a last minute holiday or planning a nice weekend away, we’ve put together a list of the top European destinations you should visit in your motorhome.
Colmar, France dates back to the 9th century, and ever since then it’s been known to most people as ‘Little Venice’ due to the waterways that wind through medieval streets. This well-preserved Alsatian village is also considered the capital of wine in the district, known for its exquisite aromas. So for those of you who enjoy a glass of wine you wont be left disappointed here. Colmar has both French and also German influences which means for those of you who enjoy bakery’s you’ll be able to find local bakeries selling kugelhopf and croissants, while eateries often specialise in sauerkraut and foie gras.
You’ll find the city of Dinant situated between the Meuse River and its citadel, which is well known for its stunning architecture and the beautiful views from the mountaintop fortress. If you enjoy sight seeing then you should certainly spend a day visiting the waterfalls of the Grotto of Dinant. Dinant has many local cafes with great food so you can take in all the views whilst getting some delicious food.
Cochem is well known for being one of the most charming towns in all of Germany, with legend, folklore and a rich history found in every corner. Set in the scenic Mosel river valley between the Eifel and Hundsruck, it’s surrounded by steep vineyards and quaint wine villages. Again for those of you who enjoy the odd glass of wine their are numerous opportunities to stop and sample some available throughout this beautiful river valley. You have to thank the soil and climate conditions as they make the Mosel Valley a prime area for cultivating the Riesling grapes that are used to produce some of Germany’s finest white wine.
Tenby has a great coastal path for fantastic views of Caldey Island. It is an old fashioned town and as expected there are plenty of gift shops and local cafes to enjoy lunch in. For those of you who enjoy a bit of exploring you can wander along the harbour, where you can board one of the cruises to nearby Caldey Island, or take a trip in search of the plentiful wildlife of this South West coast of Wales. Tenby is an attractive destination and for those in search of spending time by the beach you wont be disappointed with this option.
Manarola, Italy is one of the worlds most beautiful looking towns. Filled with an array of vibrant rainbow-colored homes carved right into an impenetrable wall of stone along the Mediterranean coast. This charming fishing town is another destination famous for its fabulous wine, particularly Sciacchetra. It also has some historic paintings from Antonio Discovolors, an artist who fell in love with Manarola and devoted much of his work to the region. Now you can drive to Manarola, but you’ll have to park just outside the town and then take a shuttle bus or walk in on foot. Reason for that is that is there are no cars here, no traffic lights, no screeching of tires, and no blasting horns. It’s probably one of the most stunning towns in world that will take you back years as you walk through it. If your looking for a change of scenery and dont mind viewing most of it on footy then Manarola is a great place to visit.
