    I don't think uou will ever find a guide with them all in. Found one today, not in any of my guides, mind you it looked fairly new. On the n88 between le puy and millau, about 6 places, individual hard standing. It was full by 1pm though. Too visible from the main road.

    We always use Campingcar magazines Aires book, extremely comprehensive, far more aires than any english guides and being written in french its not too difficult to understand. Available for most newsagents in France. We also us the Campingcar infos POI on our tomtom which covers most of the newest aires.

    About the only POI I've seen that has most of the aires is "Archies". That's probably because he makes up his lists from every other resource.

    I particularly like this app because it has reviews from users

    I've been using it on this trip and found it very useful but you have to check the listed facilities and look at the reviews. Even though most are not in English you can tell by the score what they thought of it and taking into account the date of the review make up your own mind. For example, we were considering an aire graded 6 or something, then when I looked at the reviews the only two from 2015 were scored a 1 and a 2. The earlier reviews were sevens and eights. Clearly something had changed and I was disinclined to find out what so we went somewhere else.

    Facilties vary - some of them are just car parks with maybe a waste bin.

    One, in the middle of nowhere, had the wrong coordinates, which I've told them about as sending feedback from within the app is very easy. I've sent several reviews and new pictures.

    Search for NKC in the play stores to find it.

    Spent a penultimate night at gravelines aire last week (absolutely packed !) and whilst sat enjoying the sunset over the harbour our Belgium neighbour, who had guests visiting, returned from her van carrying a large, see through, plastic container. The first thing she pulled from it was an ACSI 2015 book, then a large map. Clearly this was her travelling library :whatthe::whatthe: I'm going to need to buy a new van, the current one isn't big enough to house this amount of info :roflmto:

    Second this recommendation, a great place to plan your stops along any given route, highly recommended but use free registration for full details including gps location.

    Totally agree with this posting, the camper contact POIs are very good indeed and you won't get a better book than the "Guide-Officiel Aires ..."

    The Vicarious Books 'All the Aires' book, despite it's name does NOT have all the aries in it!!!

    You certainly do! After a 10 hr drive from beni. Arrived at one so called camperstop to find a car park with height barriers. Pushed on through somport tunnel and stayed in a lovely french aire...

    You can download all the POI you need and load onto a GPS... Cost nothing.

    I think you might struggle on a 'phone unless it has a decent size screen. It is perfectly usable with a 7" screen, anything less than say 5" might be a problem - but happy to hear from anyone' s experience.
