Hi copied from Aires camping cars, not been there myself. translation a bit suspect.

Route of the old customs
06500 Menton

This car park is a bivouac.

Menton cross towards Italy, while along the sea


Just old French-Italian border, you will bivouac on parking

the old customs.


Of course there is not, therefore, expect your full development.


For the cassette, go to SUPER U about 1 KM, because there is a terminal installed.


By cons you can not sleep on this car Super U at the risk of being "dislodged"!


We went on a scooter, as places are quickly taken by newcomers

especially during festivities. (Lemon Festival)


As a tolerance, parking is FREE.

Despite the way to Italy, we slept very well!

Beside the little cafe is a great little well-stocked market with attractive prices.

Hi
Unfortunately my friend who has an apartment in Menton tells me that the Campsite ST Michel is no longer available to motorhomes because the approach is considered dangerous . When we went there we could not believe that it was the road to a campsite having hairpin bends . The only place now is the unofficial aire on the border where you can walk or cycle to town which I might add is well worth it.
