    starting to plan our trip to France in mid summer. May take the chunnel or ferry to Calais or possibly a ferry to Caen or similar. I would just like your input on this area and recommended things to do there and we will probably spend a week on a site chilling
    Look forward to your input
    We are keen to visit rural France and won't be using many motorways

    If you are into WWII history the whole coast from Calais through to Cherbourg is full of interesting things to see, also some great cliff walks good beachs and as you go inland very attractive countryside.
    If you have a look at the phot's in my gallery (link in signature) we have spent the last 3 years visiting Normandy during D-Day week.

    Loads to see even ignoring the Normandy landing beaches.
    Fecamp - Honfleur - Bayeux - Just follow the coast there are some very nice French sea side resorts.
    Free Aire in Wissant nearby Calais.

    Enjoy

    Normandy is stacked with Aires also and is extremely M/H friendly, even in mid summer it is possible to visit "rural" areas. Added to what others have posted, South of Caen is referred to as "Swiss Nomandy" and is worth a visit.

    Travelling without motorways to Normandy is a price of cake, as there is a coastal road all the way, which passes through nice villages - many with Aires.

    Have a look at www.campercontact.com
