    Hi fellow Roller Team owner!!!

    Only problem with France in Winter is that everything is closed!! You will struggle to find a site to stay on. Try France Passion (20 euro to join) or buy the book on Aires (£11.99) but note that facilities are very limited.

    We go further South to Spain/Portugal where a lot of sites stay open all year. We spent new year 2007 in Spanish Pyrenees which was great (but expensive). See my gallery for pics.:Smile:

    Just a note to say that Parc Verger is open all year, with all-weather pitches. Last Christmas we had four rigs on site, and enjoyed champagne on Christmas morning (outside). New Year's Day we had a lunchtime BBQ, and sat outside until 4pm. We cannot guarantee the weather, of course, but when the sun comes out here it gets warm very quickly.

    PM for a code that will give you a discount on Brittany Ferries - with the price of fuel now the mid-channel ports can be as economic as Dover/Calais, and for those heading here and/or south the saving on mileage and therefore time can be worthwhile.
