    Hi,

    Off to France next week for a long anticipated fortnight away from work. Anyone got any suggestions for itinerary? Got all the books but would be nice to have some suggestions from recent travellers.

    Regards

    Neil

    We are going to Brittany next week so any information would be greatly appreciated. We are making for the Loire Valley but got no plans as such. We are going over on the 16th and will be there for 2 weeks :thumb:

    Carnac
    Arzon (Gulf de Morbihan)
    Quiberon

    Bit further round the coast out of Brittany but not far

    Piriac Sur Mer Lovely place

    Their are Aires and wild spots at all of the above however the Municipal at Arzon is better than the Aire and not much more expensive.

    We had a week at Trinite sur mer last week Forget the name of the site but it was something la plage. Really nice site/ place.

    That was my first (but definitely not last) trip to Brittany so can't really make any other suggestions sorry. the site was £100 Inc EHU for the week which I thought was great given it's position.

    Hi


    Honfleur, Caen and Mont Saint Michel are worth visiting, as are several other places in the area. I have just done a trip along the Loire Valley which was very good, especially if you are into biking, but I would ignore the bit to the west of Nantes which is industrial. The rest of the route I did as far as Briare was really good, to be continued another time.:BigGrin:


    I have posted some photos in the members albums area.

    The Guerande peninsula, which is 'west of Nantes' is well worth a visit and not too far off the beaten track.The area has lots of Aires and campsites and several small coastal towns/resorts/fishing ports such as Le Croisic, La Turballe, Batz sur Mer,Piriac sur Mer, Mesquer/Quimiac. The Cote Sauvage between Le Pouliguen and Le Croisic is superb as is the coast between La Turballe and Mesquer. Guerande is surrounded by intact medieaval walls and part of the moat, very picturesque. La Baule is an upmarket resort with a huge half moon beach, the whole area is very popular with the French in the summer

    Last years trip round Brittanny

    Hi, We travelled from South to North and there were loads of places that stuck in our minds as lovely and more than that motorhome friendly. We particularly liked Cameret sur Mer :BigGrin:and the Abers estuary area:thumb:. Quiberon is overloaded with folk at high season and the big aire outside was charging with a credit card entry - queue to get in and out and loads of fun when your card doesnt work:Rofl1:. Carnac is a great spot for prehistory with a good aire come early since the French were camped out in it:Angry:
