    We wondered if anyone has stayed here? We are going between Charlon en champagne and Dijon and would like a peaceful aire walking distance to a village or town . This is p 130 in the All the aires north book (no 53)
    If not this one is there a nice one anyone can recommend in this area ? There seems to be a cluster which made us think it was a nice valley.

    If it's Nogent sur Seine the aire is a kilometre from the town I believe.

    If that one's no good for you then Mareuil-sur-Ay is lovely.

    Another option depending on what you need might be Froncles. That's a site in all but name.

    This one: http://www.campercontact.com/en/fra...e/1156/motorhome-parking-aire-municipale.aspx

    Not sure if you will be able to view it. The location is: N 48.50341, E 3.50848 or N 48°30'12", E 3°30'31" (Depending on what format of coords you are using.)

    It says it is beside the municipal campsite and a nuclear power station. :eek:

    Just a question what wifi are you using for these messages or are you just paying for the roaming on your phone

    I'm using the camp wifi
    However I'm trying to use roaming on my phone occasionally as I have data in my three contract but I can't get it to kick in even though I have 3G and data roaming selected one phone.

    Worth checking your Three account is set for roaming and not just your phone. This link will take you to a page where you will need to log in first but after that go to this page and it will say if you are set up for international use: https://www.three.co.uk/New_My3/International_settings

    It's great isn't it.

    When the lady comes round to collect the money you just tell her if you've had water or are using electric. I think it's about €1 for water and the same per day for electric.

    The showers and the laundry are open while she's there. Tell her if you want them and she will make sure you've finished before she leaves.

    If you wander across the bridge opposite where the toilet building is, through the yard and keep heading more or less uphill there's a small Carrefour.

    That's that's really helpful
    Is Froncles village not too far by foot?

    No. You can walk out the way you came in and turn left or you can go over the foot bridge and follow your nose.

    About 5 minutes either way.

    We always take ,or buy there, long life milk perhaps not the same but it doesn't take any room in your fridge just store it anywhere, and you are never without then(y)

    If you walk over the bridge from the aire towards the carrefour the bakers is up the road to the left.
    Agree with chaser re the milk, fresh can be sparse in France, the long life is easier to get and store.

    Our foreign friends don't do fresh milk like us. I blame this on our failure to conquer them and bring them into the British Empire where they could have been taught how to make and drink tea. For which civilising enlightenment they would have been eternally grateful for.

    You will find fresh milk in some but by no means all super markets, usually tucked away somewhere amongst the chilled displays. Often no more than the odd dozen bottles available.

    Try Earl Grey tea in the afternoon with a slice of lemon and no milk.
