    :sun: Suggestions please for the above..... to help those going to Twin Lakes in September. :sun:
    Sure you will all have your favourites :D and as it's for newbies maybe 3/4 days leisurely trip. :france:

    Will post mine when I've had chance to look although a certain river with very large ships is certain to feature.....:rofl: :rofl:

    We ( if the other half is well/better) will be going via
    Saint Nicolas de Bliquetuit or La Mailleraye sur Seine
    then more than likely St Denis sur Sarthon
    Saint George sur Loire
    La foret sur Sevre
    Soumeras
    between 90 & 130 miles each day approx
    bit of a zig zag way but taking dog so stopping near countryside (dog walking places) also mostly free/ free water.

    I HOPE Swmbo is soon on the mend and you get to enjoy it. Love the zig zag routes until they do the typical closing the roads :( Then the fun bit begins :rolleyes:
    St Denis is a new one to me may make a change from Suze s Sarthe.
    Hope to plot our route today :)

    I haven't used saint denis sur sarthe but looks good on campercontact & google street view.
    We might also do Arques aire when we get thru the tunnel , we've used it a couple of times before about 30 miles from tunnel but v nice aire.

    Have a look at the download in the resources section Toll and non Toll routes in France (about France.com). All the information you have requested, plus more is there. There is also one for Spain.
    Safe Travels.

    Have only had chance for a quick look ....as we seem to be spending a lot of time with the NHS.:rolleyes:
    Always supposing we make it, God willing, our route could be across from Calais via Abbeyville to Rouen area purely so we can stay at Mailleraye sur Seine, then down via Le Mans or Chartres to Tours area.Trying to keep to 100/150 mls per day, as we will have to have several stops :whistle2: :Eeek: :swear2::pray2:
    From there down via Poitiers and end up somewhere near Angouleme :hot: :cheers: :clap2:Before travelling to Soumeras.
    Now to find some Aires :Eeek:

    you have got your first one,(y) we used La Mailleraye for the first time this year on recommendation, if wet do not be tempted to park on river side, one French man may well still be there he sank so deep o_O

    we then took the Le Mans route down were going to stop at La Fleche which looks lovely, town centre location by river, but the fair was parked on all of it

    have fun :)

    It all looks rather nice at La Fleche but the road through there is very busy and therefore rather noisy:eek:. Copious amounts of vino could help somewhat;)

    Hi @Wildge ,
    If heading to la Mailleraye (we) avoid Rouen & go via Yvetot & down that way.

    Yes, we know it well David and the noise on the t'other side.
    We usually go from there to Suze sur Sarthe and then Saumur but don't have that much time this trip. Plenty of time afterwards for exploration, especially around the vineyards.(y)
