    It is CAUMONT Sur Garonne...I will just check the spelling Jim..it is in the book page 16 no 50 of all the Aires in France

    How true you are Jim about france....these pics are not that far from Mimizan...have you been to Ondres plage we think it is better than Mimizan (it is just below Mimizan)... and you are straight on to the beach, you just go down about 10 wooden steps...Mmmmmm

    beautiful, and note how the boats get electricity points!

    We find this quite annoying as we used to own a boat on the french rivers.
    Boats get power and mostly for free, Vans get charged

    on a lot of the aires we have been on, there has been electric on most of them, some have been free some have been in with the price including the water....at 3 euros all in that is marvelous but the free aires with water and electric is first class and the villagers that look after the aires must be comended and a big thank you from me.....

    I find the "all the Aires France" a very good book......some do not exist any mor, some of the Aires the sat-cordinations and address are in a different part of France, so when you arrive at where the book says....NO.... ,don't worry as there will be another in the book close by......I put the photos on because I myself would always like to se the site and know what I am going to ...as many in the book the photos do not do the Aire justice maybe because they are old or taken when raining or just bad photos .....so I hope they help you

    This site is free you just have to pay for water electric on the bourne, I would think a charge for it, and you could get a rv onm as there was a couple of artics came into site and out again to turn around
