    What route would you take down into Spain,me and 'er indoors are away to Spain in January next year last year we went via Calais,Rouen,Evreaux,Orleans,Chateroux,Limoges,Toulouse,Carcassonne,Perpignan and on across the border at La Jonquera and then on to the Costa Azahar
    We did that route as we wanted to se a bit of the country and most of the roads were free no tolls and we were'nt in too much of a rush
    Any other routes would be appreciated

    We live in France in the midi pyrenees, we drive from home through St.Beat towards and through the Viella tunnel, Lieda, Flix, following the Ebro river to Tortosa, we join the coast road near St. Carlos de Rabita, it's a lovely run and less mileage, Sorry about the spelling but could not find the map. bambi 2 :thumb:

    Same route, stop off at Parc Verger (near Limoges) for a few days, find out why there is an increasing number of motorhomers coming here for Christmas and the New Year. If you want to come here please ring (0844 232 8500) or email (pvbureau@parcverger.com) and book first - as of this moment, 8th October, we have all of our main serviced pitches occupied, and just two of our other hardstandings available. Don't forget, MHFun members get 10% off our pitch and people charges, and we have wifi!

    I would not go to Andora in January, unless you really like snow. bambi 2 :Eeek: we do drive through Toulouse to get to St Beat though. :thumb:

    andorra in winter is a very picturess way thuogh. the ski slopes will be full and the roads are just about always clear. and very deep snow either side of the road make good photos to show when you get home. dont stop in the towns but fuel could be a little cheaper there.its difficult to park but the big shops near border have decent parking. after all its fun. cheers alan.
