Holiday in France with your EV stress-free

Avoid range-anxiety by knowing that you can charge your EV overnight at your accommodation. While there are increasing numbers of public EV charging points throughout France, usually in motorway service stations, town centres, shopping malls and supermarkets, nothing beats the convenience of being able to charge at your holiday rental.

As electric cars and plug-in hybrids are becoming more and more popular (we drive EVs ourselves), we made the decision a few years ago to install an EV charging plug for the use of our guests. We offer a Type 1, 3.2 kW charging point free of charge, right outside the front door.

Mini electric car mini break

But let’s get back to electric cars. We had great fun hosting Vloggers Tim and Mr Boo from YouTube Channel Me and Mon Ami in October 2022. They stayed at Lou Messugo with their Citroën Ami EV. Have you ever seen such a tiny car?

Driving an electric car in France

If you’d like more information about driving an electric car in France this is a comprehensive and useful guide and of course I’d be happy to answer any questions you might have. We’ve driven across France and around northern Italy in our EV as well as day-to-day use on the Côte d’Azur so we have a fair bit of experience to share.
