    Not being old hands at touring France in a motor home ,thought I would ask for a bit of advice from all you old hands . We are leaving for France for a month in late June ,have planned a basic itinery of one and two night stops on the way down southwards ,then looking for a more formal site in the Dordogne area where we could put our feet up for a about a week and relax with the odd trip out here and there ,but would like reccommendations for places to stop off and visit on the way down ,we will be coming from Hull / Zeebrugge.
    Then looking for a site in the Dordogne for a week or so , that has a bar and restraurant on site , mabye a swimming pool (incase it gets really hot ) and is not totally in the shade so we can soak up the sun and also get a Satellite signal so we can lay in bed watching tv some mornings after a heavy night on the vino!!
    So would appreciate any recommendations:Smile::thumb:

    My advice is to plot a basic route not using the motorways, heading in the general direction that you wish to end up. Then just poodle along. There are loads of places to stop, especially on the village and town aires that are everywhere. When in France buy this book, you can find it almost every where, once you have it, you are spoilt for choice for places to stay while on your journey

    You can also buy this book from Vicarious books in UK and also their own 'all the aires' book in English.

    My alternative would be to head South East from Zeebrugge, and head for the Ardennes of Belgium, to be found South of a line between Charleroi and Liege. You will have some stunning scenery virtually all to yourself. Excellent food and wine in those parts too.

    From there you can head more or less South, then heading gently South West finishing up in the Dordogne.

    The return home can then be up the West side doing Batchpatch's route in reverse.
