Stayed today for the day- it is in the car park next to the Co Op . No facilities ie no water /ehu/dump but in a very pleasant spot with a mowed field with trees over the low wall at the back- access via the path into town. Space for several mohos and room for an 8 footer - but IMO a bit dear per hour and £15 to park overnight. Fantastic circular walk in the countryside on a Greystones Nature trail situated over the road in opposite direction to Bourton, village centre 5 mins away . It is...

I used this vet on 29 March 2021 to obtain a new Pet Passport for my dog. The vet was uncertain as to whether they could issue a passport using the existing UK rabies certification so my dog was given a rabies booster. The total cost for the passport, rabies booster and worming treatment was 47,55€ . The chief vet, Dr Bouton, speaks good English and it was he who replied to my initial email enquiry about obtaining a new pet passport. Four vets work at the Clinique and the vet I saw, Dr...

Don't know how we found this one a couple of years ago, just followed some hand painted signs on buildings. Didn't hold much hope but when we got there it was almost brand new , all services including ehu for free, at the back of a monestery or something with a park. All hard standings and very quiet even sat watching a red squirrel for a while.

TThis aire is about 20 miles due west of Caen, close to the edge of a village. There are no facilities; it is very quiet. The two interesting things are the Abbaye, which may...
A Carcasonne alternative, far more pleasant town in our view than the big C and significantly less selfie taking tourists, it a lovely little town full of character and the aire was adjacent to the main road but we heard little to no traffic overnight on the hardstanding pitches and free water. Worth visiting the town whenever near to it. Ignore the height barrier it is a stock google photo from 2012 and has obviously been removed as can be seen by the first photo [ATTACH...

A field opposite the Ostrich farm which could take 20 vans and is part of the France Passion scheme but no request was made to see our membership, we shared the field with another van and were separated from the donkey by a bit of wire. If the wind was going in the wrong direction i reckon you could smell those ostriches. They have a restaurant on site as well but it was "book up" for when we were there. You could feed the things through the fence In true France Passion style we purchased...
We liked this place and considering I was in my "Im not going to spend a penny phase" that says something for this aire on hard standing next to the beach for 8 euros with free water and space to sit out. RIght next to the beach that went for a bit with people throwing themselves off cliffs with parachutes all day. Definite return so it easily passed the decent aire point
Now heres an anomaly. We went through this town on the way down and popped in for a coffee stop and ablutions. We parked alongside the quay and the weather was pretty bad and we thought the whole place was not very enticing. Anyway, we came back that way and the weather was nice, came in from a different direction and thought the place was stunning, had a wonder round and it wasnt until we walked in teh same direction as we came that we realised. Make of that, what you will for a...

This is an experiment in posting on here but if it works it's a good one worth knowing about. Up until the 1 sept this is a carpark with height barriers but from this date they are open and it is free to anything, right on the beach and about 100 yds to centre of town. Can't remember which day it is but one day a week there is a huge market.
Aire is under the viaduct at Dinan a wonderful medieval walled town not far from St Malo.The walk into the main town up a steep cobblestone hill is a “shlepp” for some but worth it. The walk around the “ramparts” has great views. Spend a day there and stay overnight. A few euros well spent. Phil

This a small CL site in a very quiet setting by a working farm about 10 minutes walk on a no through road to village of Lea. Lea has a pub, but it's Arkell's so if you like your beer, maybe give it a miss, though there's a nice garden with play equipment. There is a footpath into Malmesbury, about a 20 minute walk on a mostly flat footpath across a field, along an old railway line and a metalled side road. Not suitable for wheelchairs or bikes, there is one stile, otherwise gates. Malmesbury...
Part of a campsite and they come round early evening or you can attend the hut to pay your 8 euros including water, its on sandy grassy and although flat reversing up to the edges may require blocks, walk through the tree line and youre on the beach, which wasnt enticing but it was blowing a hooly when we were there so shouldnt really comment. Possible to walk along the beach to the town with facilities. There was some sort of wetlands along the walk to the town to the north [ATTACH...
An enclosed pay as you enter via barrier system, so make sure there is a space before entering and it is pretty tight. Probably used to be part of the municipal campsite and you get water and dump at the campsite next door which i made note was free. Hard grassy surface and a sort of park where you dare attitude whilst we were there. Couple of days maximum otherwise its into the campsite next door. nothing to shout about in the town, beach is less than a pitching wedge away [ATTACH...
This is a bit of a corker if you can get in. First up the beach that it is adjacent to is a naturist beach, and it is a proper naturist beach, so if you were to put a costume on you would look extremely out of place, there are other beaches available. Extremely well used beach and oversubscribed car park and aire. No facilities from memory and space to get your seats out. Some liberal french parking on occasions, hard surface which is dusty, about 4-600 metres to beach and then across some...
We didnt go much on this aire, it was 4 euros in a machine to get a ticket and then packed in like sardines, little chance of opening door, never mind stepping out or putting a chair out but there was some lawn to the rear, fair way to the beach but nice port and sea type things to look at

A slightly sloping aire on hard surface within a car park but designated motorhome parking and we stayed the night. Dont remember any water and it is a flat walk to the top of the cliffs past some really quite nice houses then down a wooden pathway to the beach. Free of charge and well used area
