    The 'facilities' are not actually on the aire but a few streets away behind the gendarmerie. Visit before (or after) arrival

    I see they don't allow parking alongside the steep bit down the far end any more - maybe too many English MH owners stepping out of the left hand side hab door and ending up in the cut? We hope to be using that aire again before too long - thanks for the reminder.

    We were there in June. Great memories. @Clarky, what dash cam do you have? The video is really good quality.

    Thanks for the compliments. (y)
    The camera is a BlackVue 500, now superseded by updated versions.
    The quality is good and it's not even at its maximum setting. To save space on the sd card I turned it down a notch but as the cards seem to last for ages I will tweak it back up to 1080 HD.
    Not the cheapest cam but I suppose you get what you pay for................sometimes. :D

    Richard.

    NB there is also good, free WiFi. One hour per online registration, renewed automatically each 24 hour period, but you can re- register when your hour runs out. You keep the same password ,( that you are given) every time you visit.

    Thanks for that, I wasn't aware.
    One more reason to return to Gravellines.
