Default French Aires

Came across this brilliant site and found it very useful. Love the 360 degree element and the ability to click move around the map.

Yes I like this. I'm bookmarking the site. Very useful. I must say that St Valerie En Caux has never looked so empty!

This is a fantastic resource, thank you. My French is weak but pictures speak a 1000 words in any language

Cheers

Excellent, but am I looking at it wrong as I can only seem to locate Aires in the western and northern regions?

It is a work in progress and is being expanded. Imagine how good it will be when most of the country is done. I don't suppose it will ever be finished as there are constant changes - a bit of a 'Forth Bridge' job.

Default Perhaps it's an age thing!

I've been looking at a few of the Aires along the Atlantic Coast and pondering over some of the various tariff machines! Oh goodness! something to look like a newby pondering over where I put what to get this that or whatever!

They look complicated...someone reassure me they're not!

Quite often you can park just outside of the aire and go on foot to the machine (borne). In less than a minute of viewing all will become apparent very quickly.
