    Called into this Aire last Friday 4th July. Despite having marked spaces for 4 vans there were more than 15. This wasn't a problem and no-one turned up to object. However, a group of African youngsters have taken residence under the road bridge nearby and are living in cars it seems.
    Due to the inclement weather they moved to the central shelter of the car park and proceeded to behave riotously for most of the night. Their friends in cars arrived and left constantly through the evening roaring in and braking heavily on the gravel, spinning wheels as they left. Heavy African music was played extremely loudly and due to the noise level they could only converse by shouting at the tops of their voices to one another. This continued until about 7am. When we left at 8am they were settling down in their cars under the road bridge presumably to prepare for another night of jollities.

    It would always be worth calling into the Mairie the following morning, or leave a note there. The Maire will call the Gendarmes.
    You can always call Gendarmes on 112 if you think there's risk to people or property. They are not as softly softly as British police.

    It's a lovely spot there but it's usually busy and there are often gypsies parked close by.

    After the 'gassing' thread today it's good to have a post that really informs and warns. Posting on this thread to say 'thanks cydersyd'!

    I'm sure the police would act. Someone called them because some French kids were swimming in the canal at the Charmes aire where it says no swimming. Came and sorted them out. This is far more antisocial.
