A free aire next to a lake where you could pop in and swim and Ospreys ? were regularly flying down to the lake and swooping trying to catch something but we never saw them succeed. There was a cycle round the lake and campsite at the other end

From memory you could pay to stay by the bridge or you could stay about a km up the road for free in a car park dedicated for motorhomes and nothing wrong with it. You can guess where we stayed. Lovely town on the river that goes to St Malo and renting boat was possible and actually considered...

I ll let you know my previous view of St Malo. I just thought Portsmouth equivalent before Portsmouth got some dolled up bits. HOW WRONG WAS I ??? What a great town with a fully walled city with buzzing streets and class harbour and very very clean. Forget Carcasonne this place is better in my...

I remember going there, I sort of remember staying there. I remember the harbour being nice and the walk along the side and there were tall ships there. My notes of the time

Here was a surprise town in the middle of nowhere. I knew them as a team from DIv 3 of the french league who played PSG in the final and I was nearby we attended. Very pleasant. I have no idea why there are writings on the photos !

In precis, the SS murdered 600+ civilians in cold blood by rounding them up shooting them in the legs and setting the building on fire and shooting them if they tried to escape in retaliation for alleged Resistance work. The village has not been touched or lived in since and is a living...

We have just come back through this area and were looking for aires to stop at as we killed time waiting for our ferry back and never realised we had been here ! It was only going back through my posts that I found it. Having seen the photos I now remember it as a free stopover with good town...

We have always travelled in from nearby. Its pretty flat around here and on most of the wine route going from village to village but the main town is somewhat of a corker as well with half timbered houses and pretty river running through

A serial winner of the Beaux Village of the year award. A village that might have 3-400 people live there yet 39 wine houses and a stork sanctuary. You will see storks all over the place on the chimneys, but the place to stay is at a vineyard nearly within the confines of the village. Theres an...

The road above the Ardeche river with numerous stopping points some of which have scramble down walks to the river for completely wild sunbathing whilst watching the canoes go down. It starts at Pont De l'Arche where you have to park and no overnighting in this policed area. The Ceze is nearby...

Russell Crowe film A Good Year was part filmed in this stunning Beaux village. Magnificent from the outside, it is very good inside for people watching. If you havent seen the film it encapsulates the way of life around here nigh on perfectly. There is an aire at the top of the village but that...

To the North East of the actual Mt Ventoux mountain is this little village with a bakery and bar, a lavoir and a cemetary. You park on the petanque pitch and reallocate water from the cemetary. Absolute bliss under the shadow of Ventoux. A flat road sees you make Montbrun les bains and the...

We stay at the Lavender Farm up above St Croix and it is a FP for which you will need the current book and card as they always check, been here 3 times now because you enter (after booking in at the reception) via their controlled gate and park up in their truffle orchard with loads of space. We...

No idea where we stayed, probably inland somewhere and motorbiked in. I know we didnt stay at Cassis. Its a bit of a trek to the Calanques from Cassis and even further from where you would have to park the motorhome. Allegedly the Calanques are best seen from a boat which can be taken from...

Having done a few journals and one "live" one and listened to the feedback that it is more preferential for most to enjoy a thread with interaction rather than page clicking, I am going to try the Thrournal, a thread and journal and better sounding than a Jouread which might make me sound a bit...

These are the places we have been to previously in Germany with information taken from previously posted material by ourselves.
Latest entry: Glossglockner High Alpine Road,
We havent done a lot of Italy and I am unsure of how many photos we took but created for when we return. We had a friend there and left our van at her place while I flew back for a couple of weeks work
Latest entry: Sundial village near Venice Aiello del Friuli,
I have already posted about these and created a journal, but the journal was created incorrectly and the map part of things didnt work so Jim destroyed them at my request and am slowly but surely adding them up. Apologies if you have seen them before. Belgium not as boring as one has always...
