    Hi Theresa

    Parc Verger, near to Limoges and run by Bob & Di (members of MHFun) is open all year. You can be sure of a warm welcome and the site is recommended.

    Theresa - just a quick follow-up to Brisey's post to say that MHFun members get a 10% discount on charges at Parc Verger:Laughing::Laughing: Even in February!

    Camping near Clermont Ferrand

    We stayed in a campsite at Chatel de Neuvre, south of Moulins and North of Clermont Ferrand about three years ago. You can reach it from the N7 or the N9. It is beside a river, a lovely spot.

    We were a bit apprehensive when we first arrived as it seemed a bit of a dodgy place at the look of it. We stayed for a couple of nights on our way south and loved it so much that we stayed there on the way north for about 4 nights. Very basic but a lovely place. This was late November, supposedly all year round.

    It's run by Germans and they speak excellent english. We only stayed in our land Rover with a roof tent at that time, if you are interested and give them a call, mention the size of your motorhome, not sure if you have an RV???

    Theresa, I have written on this subject before, hope I'm not being a bore. You will find it difficult to find campsites that time of the year in the areas mentioned. One campsite we use in May is at Moulins, a very good Municipal site adjacent to the bridge that takes the N7,just for future ref.
    The route down via Orleans to Clermont F and then on the A75 to Narbonne is very likely to have temperatures in the minus quantities. If you check the height above sea level is higher than 'Ben Nevis' at 1127 metres high so one would always expect frost and snow.
    If you are making for Spain far better you take the lower road, ie Le havre, Cean, Nantes, Marans, N137 to Bordeaux and than onto Spain. No tolls involved and a fast route and at sea level-- warmer and more stopovers. If you are making for Zarragoza route is Pamplona, for Valencia area route to Terual and onto the ring road at Valencia. Good cheaper and fast route throughout. I have mentioned Marans, this is about as far as my fuel lasts so we stop at Super U for cheap fuel and small provisions from the Supermarket, also I'm sure there are good O/N stopovers, Cheers good luck, Ron W

    For campsites open all year - look for the black spot in the middle of the red 'balloons, <here>

    If you find one you like give us a call on 07967 806064 and we will interpret the info.

    Hi Teresa

    In that case I really do think your best bet is Bob and Di Banks at Parc Verger.

    The only problem with Bob and Di is that everybody I have spoken to have rated them so highly that they have extended their stay from one or two days to one or two weeks!

    Email me on moandick@gmail.com and I will return the relevant page from our Guide.
