    Morning,

    We're off to France over the Easter - Mayday holiday period and we've decided to go to Paris for a couple of days.

    Has anyone get any ideas about an aire or wild camping spot within public transport range of the city (say, 30 mins by train). I've read the review of the site at Bois de Boulogne but I'd prefer a wild spot if I can find one.

    Cheers,

    Trevor

    I haven't found anything resembling an aire yet Trevor (I mean we haven't driven round all the back streets LOL - just nothing 'advertised' anywhere) and I really want to go to Versailles. There is a Yelloh! campsite somewhere nearish V, but dunno really, it still looks like a half day's camel ride to get anywhere ......

    So - I'm interested in your replies!

    Aires de Paris

    We stayed here while visiting Paris in 2008.

    Head for the Chateaux de Vincennes.

    You'll find a 'car park/aires' just off the roundabout behind the Chateaux.

    Walk across the roundabout and through the Chateaux (barely a 10min walk) and you'll find the Metro station for the centre of Paris. We paid 14 Euros each for a 2 day pass for public transport.

    The Aires or Car Park has the Mounted Police Training Academy behind it, and a lovely walk through woods for any dog lovers.

    When we stayed, there were French refugees camping amongs the trees - but didnt bother us.

    Hope you enjoy your trip, I'd go back here any day. (got room in a storage locker for me?)

    No, I hadn't - so thanks T. (It doesn't look like an aire when you blow the satellite map up does it?)

    Jenny there is a good camp site a pleasant walk into Vercise and a train station a 20min ride into the center of Paris we have used it and it was very convenient, though I would think at Easter it will be booked up other wise ok. I will dig the details out and post later when OH gets in who knows where these things are. We absolutely loved it. loads of details about this and others were posted on a thread last year don't know if anyone cleverer than me can put the link for you. :Smile:
