    Can't help with places to stop on a direct route - but do enjoy, it's a beautiful area!

    Hi Rob
    I have the ACSI stuff on my laptop, so if you want to let me know some areas that you want to stop in (depends on how much travelling you want to do each day etc) I will have a look and email any links to you if this helps?
    Anyway, the most important thing is that you will be back from France in time to attend our Grand Opening Meet which is the following weekend (27th Sept), so I am hoping that you will be able to make it :Laughing: and if so can you please book it and let us know so we can put your name in the diary?
    Have a great trip wherever you end up :BigGrin: Let me know if you want links sending....

    Hi Rob
    Ok mate, but as I said if you want any links (I don't know if you have the disc with your book?) sending, I am more than happy to do that.
    Bit of a feeble excuse re the Opening Meet matey :Laughing:, you should feel that it is your duty to come back on an earlier boat, just to be with us :Laughing::Laughing::Laughing:
    Anyway, hope you don't mind a bit of leg pulling...... Have a fantastic trip and do keep a diary to enter up here when you get back. We all love reading about peoples travel experiences......:BigGrin:

    La Fleche

    Hi Rob.
    There is a beautiful aire in La Fleche, by the river & lagoon and on the opposite side of the river to the camp site.
    Only 5 mins from the town and a small family type supermarche is across the rd.
    La Fleche is south west of Le Mans
    hope this helps
