    Hi we have used them in the past and found them to be really good and our daughter preferred some of them to some sites as she got to meet the French family and some had kids.

    We did turn up at one and didn't really like the look of it but stayed the night anyway and turned out to be a little gem even if the grass was a bit untidy :Rofl1:

    We left Dunkirk and turned right down towards Le Treport, not quite sure why maybe because it sounded good. The place was pretty closed up but that may have been one of two reasons a) lunch time on a Monday b) by the water. The quay etc reminded us of Looe in Cornwall, we first went to:

    Le Treport 1 which is on page 384 of the new book.
    Looked a little tired and with rain a bit miserable, I can imagine however in the sun it would be an ideal point to stay,

    We then drove up the hill to Le Treport 2
    This is situated right on the top of a hill over looking the bay very quant, little bit exposed with the wind and rain but an ideal spot for lunch, would certainly give this ago with some sun.

    We moved on to another site to stay the night, a nice Aire in Montville (Page 387 16). Im not sure if the book picture is correct, that maybe my mistake. The village has a few little shops, bar etc. Aire is nice and tidy right next to a lake and sports complex which is quiet

    Following a peaceful night drove into Rouen parked next to the River

    Felt it was time for a recharge so headed for Forges les-Eaux (Page 386 11) lovely and clean.

    Next Aire we visited (Page 437 77) St Venant right next to the canal very pretty and quiet

    To finish of we drove to Lille bit of a shop and then moved on towards Dunkirk as darkness fell we headed for a campsite which was shut until May however the owner saw us drive up and offered parking providing we didnt want electricity. Very nice.

    I know you are all probably fed up of me banging on about France passion, but being as the question has been asked , we spent 3 weeks in France last year totally on FP sites, down to the south then on to paid for sites In Italy and I must say enjoyed the FP sites far more , and again on the way back. Most of the ones we were on had water and a few toilets, but as we are self contained this was fine ,with just camping car stops to empty the tanks. They all sell something but not one was pushy, we did purchase some things but only what we would have bought anyway (wine, eggs, honey, cider, veg and even at one home grown peanuts ) well worth the £24
