    Thought you were after Aires in France. We are staying on the Bairritz Aire at the moment, raining and 10 degrees. Heading for Bilbao to Portsmouth ferry on Tuesday morning.
    We arrived here on May 1st and headed straight for the south, Narbonne Plage Aire. we were hoping for sunshine and good weather but severe gales and cold was our gift. Due to a family illness we are forced to return home early. Our plan was to sail back on
    July 1st but family are more important. In case any funsters head to Narbonne Plage please be aware that from June 1st a 24 hour stay is all that is allowed. We used to have a couple of weeks here but they have now stopped long stays. We had a visit to Gruissan Plage Aire but it was full. In fact we counted 265 units and they were in most cases only two metres apart, no thanks.
    We again tried some new Aires in country villages and found they offer the better value. On the way up from Narbonne yesterday we pulled into a village and found an unexpected Aire. Beautiful location, electric and only 3 euros, I hope the Caravan Club read our postings.
    If you are looking for an inexpensive aire near Guadamar try the industrial estate just off the N332 behind Aldi. It is pretty new and secure with electric.

    Is that the Ave Milady Aire to the south of Biarritz, near Marbella Plage, set back from the main road behind a tall hedge? Nice if you can get a place, but usually heaving in summer. Obviously you've got your travel priorities sorted for this trip but if you're down there again I can recommend the Anglet and La Barre Aires on the north side of Biarritz. Both a bit quieter and more spacious in the summer months, and close to the same bus routes. They're also on good cycle tracks, although neither have electricity.

    The Aire was further south. In the Aires book it is purple 162 at Auzas. By the
    side of the lake and the village is fantastic. The area is beautiful but a bit hilly.
