    Hi copied from Aires camping cars, not been there myself. translation a bit suspect.

    Route of the old customs
    06500 Menton

    This car park is a bivouac.

    Menton cross towards Italy, while along the sea


    Just old French-Italian border, you will bivouac on parking

    the old customs.


    Of course there is not, therefore, expect your full development.


    For the cassette, go to SUPER U about 1 KM, because there is a terminal installed.


    By cons you can not sleep on this car Super U at the risk of being "dislodged"!


    We went on a scooter, as places are quickly taken by newcomers

    especially during festivities. (Lemon Festival)


    As a tolerance, parking is FREE.

    Despite the way to Italy, we slept very well!

    Beside the little cafe is a great little well-stocked market with attractive prices.

    We were with the Rapido. As all the seats were taken, we parked along the sidewalk. Our idea was to change soon as RVer away, but on reflection, we were very well here!

    So .............................. We stayed there!

    Hi
    Unfortunately my friend who has an apartment in Menton tells me that the Campsite ST Michel is no longer available to motorhomes because the approach is considered dangerous . When we went there we could not believe that it was the road to a campsite having hairpin bends . The only place now is the unofficial aire on the border where you can walk or cycle to town which I might add is well worth it.
