    Hello all

    At the end of the summer we usually head off to a friends site near newquay and spend a few days before we all go for a bit of tour of the coast.

    Now with the weather not being so great, and having a new MH we are seriously considering a trip to the South of France for a couple of weeks

    My partner and I like the beaches and I would like to spend some time at a site that has a scuba diving centre, we also have a 7 month old.

    I have bought a couple of Aries books and have a few sites in mind to book before hand.

    We will travel via the Dover - Dunkirk as ive seen an offer for £27 each way for a MH. (open to suggestions though).


    We have travelled all over the UK in all seasons, but just wondered if there are any top tips that may be overlooked by a European novice.

    Thanks in advance..

    What about?

    Try around the French/Spanish border , I know the Spanish side fairly well L'Estartit on the Costa Brava has excellent water and diving facilities many campsites between there St Pere Pescador ,Roses .All of these are within 40 miles to the border , the French side of the Pyrenees is equally stunning but cannot quote diving centres Alan

    Is there anyway of loading the French Aries into a Garmin to make life a little easier?
