    We are over on Wednesday morning ferry and take a couple of days to get to lux. Just head east from Dunkirk hugging the Belgium border stop at the Aires in Le Cateau de Cambresis and then on to the small municipal campsite by the river in Sedan. You then have a choice of the free aire at Dudelange by the railway station with cheap tickets into Luxemburg centre or there is an ACSI site a little closer to the centre if you want all of the services. Keep an eye out for HA5 3DOM we are off to Moselle and river Tauber after that.

    Just to let you know that your chances of finding a space on the aire at Dudelange are slim :eek:. It was packed full when we came through the other week so we stayed in the adjacent car park with a few other vans. I think it is 'tolerated' but don't take it for granted eh? Strictly speaking off site 'camping' is illegal in Luxembourg.

    Do you have a Sat Nav! This should select the best non Toll route for you.

    Last time we went that way we stayed in a free Aire in Bastogne, in a car park but it was quiet on a Friday night. Very convenient for the town centre and the "Battle of the Bulge and Transport Museums etc"
    We also found free Aires in Sarralbe and Obernai that were a short walk in to the town centres

    We use this route all the time to get to eastern France (Metz, Nancy)
    Great route although the the Belgian road surfaces are not all that good - bonus of cheap fuel in Luxembourg

    If you want to settle in to a site in Luxemburg, I recommend "Bon Accueil" in Alzingen, Hesperange. 14 Euros(ACCSI), roomy standings, great Toilet block, laundry, etc, free WIFI that works, very short walk outside the gate for bus into town.
    My cheapy Chinky sat nav was set up to avoid Toll routes so they were never an issue. Great piece of kit. (y)

    Hi :)

    Route we have done a few times never in a hurry is Calais/Dunkeruqe/Lille/Valenciennes /Landrecies/La_Capelle/Hirson/Charleville-Mezieres/Stenay. This is a nice route if not in a hurry with a few aires on route. We stop at Stenay as it is on the river La- Meuse. The aire is on the marina with Showers Toilets Washing machines tourist info Beer Museum and a Aldi supermarket to name but a few. Last year €8.50 per night with hookup and water. WiFi at extra cost. It is then a slow drive to Virton/Petange and free motorway to Luxembourg. Nice campsite at Hesperange with bus stop into city. It is then a simple drive to Trier and hundreds of stellplatz up the Mosel.

    My vote also goes to Bon Accueil in Luxembourg - fabulous site and ACSI rate, however get there as early as you can. We stayed 2 nights (didn't want to leave really) and by mid afternoon on both days the site was full. We had the best meal of our whole 7 weeks tour at the Chinese restaurant on the corner by the traffic lights - can't remember what it was called but the nice young lad who runs the site bar will know.

    Bon Accueil - me too. Stayed there a couple of times and reception staff are wonderful (especially when they found us a pitch in the pouring rain even though there was a "site full" sign outside!)
