Just returned from easter in France - had intended to stay in above but a look at weather before we left quickly decided for us to travel a bit south. Seems we were lucky - met a couple who spent 9 days there over Easter. While the weather is out of our hands (apparantely it was cold, wet, sleet etc.) the aire has also been reduced to approx. half its size - the other half being a builders yard. They described the aire as 'absolute chaos' - campers everywhere trying to park, getting tickets on street, prices in shops/bars increased and general mayhem. A pity as we always enjoyed this stop. On a good note we stopped at a municipal site in Argenton which we could not recommend highly enough and at an extremely reasonable price. Definitely a labour of love for the warden who keeps this site like a 'new pin' - a definite for any list.
