    Just back from a week in Belgium, stopped here for two nights, thought I'd update on facilities. There are actually two aires, with separate entrances, either side of Bargeweg. One is shaded by trees, the other in the open [not too bothered by shade in December...] with some 60 spaces in all. It's effectively a car park for motorhomes but with services on site. Electric hook up is available for all pitches at no extra cost. Disposal of black water and five minutes fresh water should have cost 50 cents each, but the machine had either been vandalised or disabled, so that both were free. The cost for parking is 15 Euros for 24 hours, rising to 22 in summer. We had previously heard that you were charged for a further day if you left after 11am, so were presently surprised to be charged just 30 Euros: we arrived at 16.30 on day 1, left at 14.30 on day 3, so got our moneysworth!

    Some may cavil at the cost, buy I reckon £12 a day, electric included, is worth it for a stay in walking distance of such a popular city as Bruges.

    The pitches on the left hand side of the road are not as tight as the ones on the right hand side. And they are tight lol

    Worth pointing out that you need to go to the bus station to pay, we were on the overflow area with the trees and tried to put credit card into the exit post DOH nice local man pointed out that we had to go over the road to pay.

    Good point (y) I'd forgotten that, first time we used it I wandered around for ages before a bus driver told me. Then the machine swallowed the payment card but wouldn't let me out and we had to wait for someone to come and open the barrier.:eek:

    Used yesterday. Same pay at machine before leaving. Parked next to the coach station and found it annoying in the evening with all the coaches ticking over. OK after 9pm was fairly quiet.

    Think 15 Euros is OK including electric but wouldn't want to pay 22 Euros in summer.
