Formula 1 returned to Circuit Paul Ricard in the south of France last year for the first time in almost 30 years. The first French Grand Prix in ten years suffered from significant organizational issues which caused transport delays for many fans entering and leaving the circuit, especially on the first day of the weekend. With a rural location and very few little accommodation close to the circuit (apart from camping), the best places to stay are in France’s second biggest city of Marseille (50km to the West) or in Toulon (30km to the South).

ACCOMMODATION NEAR PAUL RICARD

Given last year’s transport issues, trackside camping is an appealing option for the French Grand Prix. Pitches are available from the circuit (not yet available for 2019) or from Camping F1, who also offer pre-erected tents. Permanent campsites near the circuit are also listed below.  Several beautiful hotels are also nearby Paul Ricard, but teams, track officials and sponsors have block reserved all the rooms on Grand Prix weekend.

Cote d' Azur campsites

If you are keen to make a beach holiday out of your French GP experience, there are plenty of beautiful campsites with large grounds and swimming pools (many close to the beach) in the surrounding Cote dAzur region not far from Paul Ricard. You can bring your own campervan, caravan or tent, or rent an on-site cabin:

ACCOMMODATION IN MARSEILLES
