    Sorry NO there is now a Aire on the coast road North heading out of BOULOGNE SUR MER heading towards Wimereux on the road called Bd Sainte Beuve (D940)....just above the port...halfway up the hill on the left and side.....the place as been there for a while it was a parking area all in segments.., But now they have put a borne and you have to pay..look on Google earth or Michelin maps...opposite "All de la Legion D'Honneur"...:cry::Doh:

    Roger.... I tried in the Autum and was told NO not any more:Doh:.. and they was just putting the finishing touches to the borne what is now the Aire:cry:

    Just been looking at the new Aires book and it seems there are a lot of changes a foot.....more and more villages and towns are now charging on Aires that was free!!!!!!!!

    France is like the UK it needs the money............the Doctors chargers have gone up and many others things as well......

    MIMIZAN PLAGE is now 12 euros all year (electric all in) last year early it was 6 euros........And I would think if the aires go up in price, so will the campsites

    One Aire I went on late last year(for fishing) was free Aire per night and free water and free electric......now is 5 euros
