    Hi all......have been to France many times and used the aires extensively....(y)
    And never bovvered with ehu however ;) ..........CIRCUMSTANCES change :crying: :crying:
    next year hoping to make it to Twin Lakes having had to cancel this year. My request is.........
    recommendations for aires with ehu ( the 24hr. kind) from Mortagne back up to Dunkerque. Have checked on the usual sites but they don't seem to differentiate re ehu. Food and drink would be a priority:rofl:
    We will have about 12 days :clap2:otherwise may have to resort to municipals :whistle2:
    many thanks Jude

    Neufchâtel en bray Aire has electric on each pitch there is a restaurant on the adjoining campsite( owned by the same people)
    It's only a couple of miles from the motorway.

    Honfleur has some 16A and some 5A points, all included in the parking price, but nowhere near enough for every one so if it's busy you will probably be out of luck.

    What about a splitter? When I was there the chap ahead of me had the last (working) connection. When he realised he got out a splitter so we could share it.

    You could but you need to bare in mind that the point in the main part of the aire are only 5A so if you split that you don't have much to play with.

    If you can get into the smaller area on the left as you drive up the road those points are 16A so are better suited to it.

    Always carry a splitter... If ehu essential what's wrong with municipals... Some beautiful ones around and fantastic value for money....

    I totally agree davanne. We stayed at St Claire aire last week. It was our first stop on an aire and there were only two motorhomes. Us and a french couple. Unfortunately the campsite with restaurant closes in September. Very well kept and pretty aire with washing machine and tumble drier if you need it!!

    I believe the expression 'bees knees' comes form the fact that when bees collect nectar they store it in special pouches on their knees/legs so the 'bees knees' is the best/most desirable bit of a bee ... therefore it means it's the best you can get! :D

    Not sure why the "dog's bollocks" is used to mean the same though ... possibly to do with the dog's potency???? :X3: I'll let someone else explain that one! :oops:
