    Aizelles

    Aizelles (camping-du-moulin) between Laon and Reims. Access OK - farm yard gates achievable with care. We are 10m with 5m trailer (Dad 9.5m with 6m trailer both got in ok but both Mike and Dad are use to transporting wide loads across Europe). So can I suggest you check out google maps streetview for gates. Pitch size excellent. TV reception good. Toilets and showers basic but clean. 15 euros per night. Farmers wife will get bread in the morning, and gave us fresh salad stuff. :thumb:

    Hi Larry , hope you are all OK .

    If you haven't got an Aires book there is an Aires at Arras n50 17.688 e002 47.310 with 10 spaces .

    The one at Reims is tight , we were there 4 years ago in our Hurricane and its hidden around the back of a large building, worth checking if there is space before going round.
    There was a car park nearby with spaces for camping cars which we used and was foc.

    If you need any more info give me a pm.

    Have a great time :thumb:

    We stayed on the aire at Reims last year (photo below). As has been mentioned, there is not all that much space but it is in a good location within easy walkiing distance of the lovely cathedral.

    To gain access to the aire you have to get a code for the barrier from the adjacent youth hostel, you can also get free wifi here.

    Have a good trip.
