    Met some fellow motohomers from Jersey today in the Aire at Forges Les Eaux and they gave us a leaflet about their new Aire - overnight parking for 5 motorhomes, they're going to open. Sounds very nice, it has hookup and water on each pitch, grey water disposal; cassette disposal point and is close to the beach, shops and restaurant. Tel: 00 44 (0) 1534 759082 to book/further info/fees

    No we do not have a web page as yet, but if you email us we could send you details with a picture of the stopover.

    I thought you were not allowed to bring a motorhome or caravan onto the Island unless you had a campsite booking?

    At the moment a permit is needed, but as from January 1st 2017 the powers that be have advised me that a permit will no longer be required to bring in either a caravan or motorhome.

    Now that could cause chaos on an Island the size of Jersey.

    The permit is not to restrict the number of motorhome, caravans but to allow you to sleep in it only on a designated campsite, even us islanders have to apply for a housing permit when purchasing a motorhome which makes us sign to say we will not sleep in it. This is to stop people using as alternative to housing.

    Having been to jersey lots of times to visit relatives, you wouldnt really want to drive a motorhome there, most roads to beaches and other places are very tight lanes, if u do go take extra wing mirrors u might need them:)

    Regarding my quote "as from jan 2017 a permit will not be required to bring a motorhome/caravan into Jersey". Today I found out that I have received the wrong information from the powers that be! So a permit will still be required for at least the next year.
