Corsica - Campervan/Motor home on Ferry - any advice?

Jump to last reply

Hi - We are hiring a motorhome/vampervan and will be in France and the UK for just over a month from late June to late July 2013. We are going to see at least a couple of stages of Tour de France, but we haven't planned the itinerary or booked any particular camp grounds yet. Just starting to do that now. Basically we only have one other obligation for the month - the British Open in Scotland on 19th - 21st July. We have been to Europe before, and we have no burning desire to see the cities (such as London or Paris) but we do want to see the countryside.
My husband & I and 7 yr old son are travelling. We are pretty good at long distance driving, and we don't mind the trip (or detours) when the destination is worth it.
The question is about the start of the Tour, this year in Corsica! Has anyone any experience of taking a motor home over to Corsica on a ferry? I understand at that time of year that ferries leave from Nice, but also from Livorno in Italy (shorter trip). Any tips or advice? Also, have we left it too late for planning this? All comments, particularly about Corsica, would be gratefully received.

We are also planning on visiting Disneyland (Paris) - as voted by our son.
