As its your first time

Best tip ever - Drive on the other side of the road

No Seriously - Enjoy and it'll be here before you know it.

Are you only staying on campsites or will you 'wild camp' too?

The aires are great and if you're sensible very safe. Many of us use them every year to pad out our holidays with free nights. Also do a search for France Passion as well.
