    Our daughter is in the process of buying an apartment in Grenoble and looks like we have been roped in to helping decorate and build furniture / put up shelves etc. ( I'm sure I remember buying the MH to get away from stuff like that! ).

    Anyway, we're going to make a 3 or 4 week trip of it and hopefully get up into the mountains for a week or 2 while we are there.

    We're planning to spend around a week in Grenoble and will have use of the daughters car. If anyone knows of a site that is not too far away that we could use as a base and would be relatively secure to leave the camper during the day that would be helpful.

    Also, any suggestions on route and stops/aires on the way would be helpful - we don't plan to be in a rush so happy to stopover at some interesting places on way there/back.

    Thanks

    Thanks for this link Brisey. - I've seen this site from the motorway from Geneva but couldn't find it on Google or Google maps - will definitely check it out as this seems close enough for daily commuting.
