    I am just doing some research for next years trip and am being a bit lazy by asking instead of looking, so is there an Aire near or in the Rochefort area?

    Thanks Ralph

    There is no overnight Aire in Rochefort itself. The nearest appears to be Route de L'Eglise in Echillais south of Rochefort. cords N45 deg 53.847' W000 deg 57.335'

    If you are in the Rochefort area have a look at the Aire at Soubise. Electric hookups paid for at the machine at the entrance. Lovely Aire on the estuary and by the Yacht Club.

    Yes that's the one. You can also park over the other side of the hedge.
