Best place to camp in South of France?

Hello,

We are considering to go camping in the South of France this weekend March 7-9. Yes I expect it will be cool.

Has anyone camped there before? I went online looking for a campsite overlooking the mediterranean, surrounded by hills and clear blue-green water, within walking distance of beach and a quaint fishing village with a nice market.

Preferably close to Marseilles because there's a TGV route most of the way there from Basel.

do you know what the nighttime temperatures might be right now? I think many sites will be closed and the nighttime temperature is just above freezing....

I agree, I would probably wait a month or so before camping down there, but here's a list of campsites:

But if you want a nice cheap hotel in Marseille itself, here is my favourite:

We used to go camping to the south of France every year when I was a kid. Lots and lots of good places all over, We used to go by the Michelin guide which was pretty much comprehensive for france.
