    I have booked to cross to Dunkirk at midday on 24th March 2011 with my 8.7 m motorhome. I plan to head south in easy stages but now find that most of the sites are closed until April. Any suggestions for suitable sites for a gentle run south to somewhere warmer would be appreciated.

    This will be the first trip abroad, for my wife and I, in our new van.

    Cheers

    Hi, when we travel down we stop on Aires, but most have the water turned off in winter.:Doh: But you are a bit restricted in France but there are a few Open.:Smile:

    Once in Spain you have more Open we use the ACSI book. :thumb: Most site have a discount rate over so many days, but over a month most charge for electric on the meter.:BigGrin: Bob.

    Camping Cheque

    Hi

    Thank you very much for the posts. I visited the Boat & Caravan Show this morning and went to the Camping Cheque stand. They were very helpful and I now have their list of sites (in English) which will be most useful.

    Thank you again for your help.

    Regards

    Stuart

    If you do aires, I've heard that cemetaries are good places to take on water when it's turned off in aires. :Smile::Smile::Smile:

    Seeing us mentioned above (thanks, bobandjane) I'll just confirm that Parc Verger is open all year, and has good big hardstandings for our guests. We look forward to meeting many funsters in 2011, new as well as existing friends.:thumb:

    Wherever you travel this year, enjoy a safe journey :BigGrin:

    The cemetery post reminded me of a good aire behind the cemetery in Le Boulou.
    Perfect stopover for anyone traveling to Spain.Its free and theres water and toilets with a dump grid.
    Situated just before the Spanish border,if your coming down the autoroute come off at La Boulou and go into the town,you will pick up signs for the cemetery,also its the last place for LPG before Spain,just up the road at the supermarket.The air is only a 3 minute walk into the centre of town.
