    Hi Mo,
    Just out of interest when are you going to France, as I am a member of motorhomingfrance .co.uk and they do a memory stick


    Going to France & won't have internet access?


    THE 2014 MOTORHOMINGFRANCE AIRES & CAMPSITES DIRECTORY IS NOW AVAILABLE ON A 2Gb USB MEMORY STICK


    A comprehensive & detailed directory of over 1,600 aires & campsites throughout France -- each entry has a location map, GPS coordinates, directions, details of facilities, prices, images (5,000 in total) & a full description - the majority of sites also have an independent review.(Non-members can view sample pages in the "SAMPLE ARTICLES" section on the Home page)


    All this information is now available on a USB memory stick which enables you to view it on your laptop if you cannot access the internet. The programme is viewed as if you were connected to the internet.

    PRICE INCLUDING P&P is £20.00

    Price to members is £15.00 ( Members please go to the link on Main Members Page)

    This is the sort of info on the memory stick

    REVIEW
    A well maintained, clean & quiet aire close to the centre of the village with several level spaces available. Toilet block with washing up sinks & picnic tables on grass. Only a boulangerie (with some grocery) & a restaurant in village.
