    I don't think I have ever stayed on a 'grass' Aire. Looks nice!

    It's very nice. We thought we'd be using Aires mainly and campsites when we needed to do laundry but there are even Aires with launderettes nearby. So it's going to be Aires all the way! Such a brilliant setup, it's going to make mohoming feel very much like hard work when we get back to good old Blighty :smiley:

    Makes it rather like using CL's by the look of it, nothing at all wrong with that by the way, and motorhomes only so less space needed per pitch

    Nice looking site, thanks for sharing (y)

    just had a closer look at Jim's link (thanks again) looks bigger than I first expected

    also free day parking which is interesting so close to the beach

    but looking through the photos, quite a few users have their awnings out with chairs outside, I thought this was not allowed on aires?

    Although this is more like a basic campsite than the aires we have seen and used so far

    we have found and used this one near Millau, as I described att he time more like a CL

    no general rule.. look in the aire descriptions for.. Camping Behaviour 'allowed' or 'not allowed'

    on some there is plenty of space.. others it wouldn't be possible.. also depends how busy they are ..

    grass type aires generally have more space than the car park type.. such as the one at Honfleur

    Depends what sort you are on , the large town ones useualy pack them in so no room for awnings but even so never seen one where you couldn't get your table and chairs out if you want , but the small village ones you can pretty much do what you like as long as there is room for everyone,

    So far every Aire we've been on everyone seems to get chairs, tables out for meals and most pack away afterwards. A few awnings out but no one seems to take the Mickey. It feels very much like there is a respect for everyone's right to park up for a day or two and enjoy themselves. You get the overall impression of a country that welcomes motorhomes and makes good provision for them. Local businesses must do well. Nearly everywhere we've been there's somewhere to stock up or a van comes round with baguettes in the morning. We've had cider sellers and local fisherman selling their wares knocking the door. All makes for a lovely relaxing time touring around.
