    This is a great site fantastic location for Paris on the River and lovely fresh croissants and bread availbale from a well stocked supermarket on site

    Easy walk to the bus stop to catch the 244 to Port Maillot where the bus terminates at the Metro station of the same name. Catch line 1 that will take you to the Champs Elysees, Louvre etc 1 change to line 6 and you get to the Eiffel Tower. We bought 10 tickets for 12 Euros (machines in the Metro station have English as an option) covers buses, trams and metro best value for money. Taxis are B****Y expensive avoid like the plague meter increaes 10c every 10 sec

    Pitches are a good size but a bit tight getting into our pitch for an RV (we are only 32ft) did some damage to the rear of the RV (not serious) keeping an eye on the wooden marker post to the left and the rear swung out and scraped the marker post on the opposite side of the road [​IMG]

    One major word of warning though is the approach to the site always always if you are a tall MH come in from the East NOT the WEST there is a low bridge on the road a short distance away to the West of the campsite we are 3.5m high the bridge is 3.6m (we missed the entrance at 9pm) so you big A classes are not going to make it. In fact our Snooper Ventura S7000 would not calculate a route with the RV dimensions had to swap to car to get it to calculate.

    Best way in from the North is A16 via Amiens abvoids the Peripherique all the way to the campsite.

    That was our first mainland test run.

    'er indoors hit Paris at 17:00 ish and then we find I'd not loaded detailed French maps on the GPS, so round and round we went in the dark. "There it is" "Yes, but can this thing swim ?"

    So we flopped into the restaurant downed a litre of their house red with steak and chips. Never did a meal feel better.

    As you say, great site for doing Paris. We plan on returning one day.
