    We are off to France at the end of October, hoping to spend a couple of nights at the aire in the center of Bayeux and then on to Camping Haliotis at Ponterson. Has anyone stayed at either of these, is access good at the aire for a 32' RV and do you think it would be worth booking at the campsite as it is half term in the UK. :wine:

    I found the Aire at Bayeux difficult to find but later found that it is a car park at the centre of the town. From memory that should be OK for a large vehicle although I'm not a driver of such a large vehicle and am unsure of its capabilities.. Alternatively, you could use the Municipal Campsite just off the ring road if open this time of the year. That should be fine for a RV.

    You wont have any problems getting into Bayeux aire, like Evans said it's a big carpark, access from two points. The service point (free water) will be tight for 32ft, you might have to cut the kerb. The aire is top of the town, just a five minute walk to the centre.

    We went in August and I would recommend the municipal campsite on the ringroad. It's within walking distance of the town and has the usual amenities, big supermarkets opposite. It wasn't expensive either!
    The streets in Bayeux are quite small & narrow, they would be ok as long as you don't get lost going to the Aire!!

    Stayed in August and like yourselves a bit apprehensive. As buses use the same route you have no problems. Its just a big car park and free.

    They closed off one of the streets alongside the car park and the local pub set up a bandstand. Great free entertainment all night and at 12 it was like a switch being turned off as it went silence. Slept like a log.

    About 1/2 mile walk to municipal and out of the character of the town centre which is really worth exploring along with the war cemetries.

    Would go back in a minute
