    Location, water and waste is all we need. For us the location is the Carlsberg factor (y) Quite happy with a car park if it's in the right place.

    Doesn't need to have anything else and doesn't need to be free.

    You can keep adding facilities and before you know it you have something that's a campsite in all but name. The aire at Froncles is an example: It has electric, showers, a laundry and you can use awnings etc. It's €3 per night to stay there with equally small extra charges for the various extra bits done on an honesty basis.
    What it doesn't have is the location. It's great if you just want somewhere quiet but there's nothing in the town apart from a Carrefour.

    Hi.
    Enough room to walk around the unit with ease would be nice,and it would not have to be free,however,once you started to charge,i think you could be leaving yourselves wide open to a claim or something.

    If Carlsberg did aires they'd be in Britain.

    In France all I want is a working service point and a bit of grass to sit out on, maybe with a few picnic benches thrown in.

    Include shade then :)

    You might consider a two tier offering - standard campsite (EHU, shower block, larger pitches) and campsite lite (just smaller marked pitches) both with access to a service point.

    A view is nice, but ease of access and decent size pitches are important too. People seem to rave about clean toilets and decent hot water in the showers.

    I agree with @NickNic Water and waste (black) is ideal if the location is good. However, good location means different things to different people. A nominal fee is quite acceptable.

    Location and degree of facilities are a personal preference as we all have different 'likes'.
    Being a newcomer to M.H.'ing we have been amazed with the difference in motorhome awareness in accommodating motorhomes in the UK compared to Europe, (even the old English 'brown road sign' depicts the outline of a tent and caravan...... maybe we should petition a change in the design to include a motorhome image !) :unsure::unsure: :whistle:

    Hi, as said before just the basic's but like to be near water i.e, rivers ,lake, canal or beach if possible , but when in transit to our region , somewhere quiet away from main roads. We always do quite a bit of research before going & always have a few back up aires just in case.

    And that's when you've gone beyond a camperstop and built a campsite (y)

    Hi.
    You could do a "French/France" Passion idea,if someone was to phone ahead about staying over,have you thought of offering a meal ? I know it would be hard work for some people,and it won't make you rich,but the idea allways appealed to me when reading the brochure when i was a member.
    Just a thought.
