    Does anyone know of a nice campsite or aire within easy walking distance of a bus route to Nancy in the Lorraine region of eastern France, please?

    Failing that, has anyone ever stayed at ‘Camping Campeole Le Brabois’, which is a campsite in Villers Les Nancy? It’s approximately 4 miles from the centre of Nancy.

    Hi, Terry

    Thanks very much for info re aire.

    Our Compass Calypso was one of the last off the production line. It was registered in January 1994, so has just celebrated its 20th birthday. We have owned it since July 2010 and, although we've had to spend quite a lot of money on it, we love it!

    Off topic, sorry, but it reminded me of a line in Allo, Allo where the innkeeper played by Gordon Kaye says "yes, we are all Nancy boys" Brilliant programme !:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Aire in Nancy

    Hi folks

    There is an aire (6 places) almost in the centre of Nancy at the Capitainerie du Port Nancy, Port du Plaisance - co-ordinates N48.692040 E6.193308, entrance is off the Boulevarde 21E Regiment Aviation.

    Make sure you have full water tanks and empty grey and black tanks as there are no facilities for replenishing or dumping waste, although you can use the toilet in the Capitainerie.

    From memory the cost was about €10 per night (2008) including EHU, so will probably be a bit more now, pay the Harbour Master at the Capitainerie.

    It's only a short walk (10 - 15 minutes) into town.

    Have fun.

    Daedalus
