    Looking on ukcampsites it says it opens from May onwards, we were hoping to get there on the 4th May, however on Archies campsites it says it doesn't open until 5th May. Can anyone through any light on this or is there a decent Aires nearby?
    Thanks,

    We found our way to the Metz aire when we were in the area in 2014. We found it full and at the end of a busy car park. Luckily what I assume is the municipal campsite is literally next door to the aire so thats where we stayed.

    Its a very pleasant site with good facilities and pleasant views of the Moselle which runs alongside.

    Best of all its only a short walk into the city of Metz which is well worth visiting - cathedral, shops, opera house etc.

    Sorry, can't help you with campsite opening dates, best to give them a ring or email.

    We spent the night at Metz pronounced "Mess" (in case you didn't know!) on 8th Sept last year. We had intended using the Aire but it was full. The municipal site is adjacent and we arrived too late to be bothered to find anywhere else so stayed there - 22.2 euros (that may include dog charges) . The site was fine - right on the river so nice views/walks and the city is short walk away and very well worth seeing. The Cathedral is amazing - beautiful stained glass windows and clearly the organist doesn't suffer from vertigo!!! Don't know where you are heading after/before Metz - do visit Alsace if you can - stunning villages.
