    out walking the dogs and spotted a Frankia Funster on the aire.

    Hope to catch up with them later as their Frankia is one of the candidates for our next Motorhome!

    Nice aire, St Mailleraye. Gets busy late on. Watch the world, (and ships) go by.

    Yes, it is nice @gillnphil. Our first time here and likely to return.

    About half of the vans here are Brits!

    There is a nice France passion site nearby just along the cycle/tow path heading out of the aire just past the local villiage.

    10 or more years ago it was a lovely quiet and free aire.. rarely saw more than a few vans.. we spend many a happy day there en route

    Last time we were there it was almost full .. but still a nice location to chill for a couple of days ..

    We certainly enjoyed our night's stay there @scotjimland and enjoyed our lunch at the adjacent restaurant where our two (well behaved) dogs were welcome.

    One of our favourite aires too.
    Been there 3 times already this year.

    @scotjimland , it's still free........as long as you go there in the winter months. :)

    You're a bad influence, keeping us up until 0115hrs drinking red wine and whisky - you know what they say; never mix the grape and the grain!

    Oh and thanks for the 'dry run' in the Frankia - Linda says it has reinforced her (our) view that it could be the right model for our next van!
