a lots been said latly about aires in August, We dont normaly use them as we usualy travel in tandam with our older kids, them having a caravan and trailer tent. But this year thier going over on thier own so were taking a few days to chatch them up to meet for 9 days at a campsite, them thier making thier own way back and were going to do the slow fews day home trip. So basicly 3 nights down to the Vendee (10-13 aug) and 3 nights back (22-25 aug), now to the piont I was planning to use aries (got the book, looked them up on google earth, put loads in my sat nav) but am I like to find them full. I was aiming for the aire at La Fleche/Saumur/ somewhere after Cholet going down, them swing back up through Britanany possible le Harve/Deieppe/ then somewhere after Abbyville to Calias. Am I correct in thinking arrive early? that coastal aires will be full so have backup plans?
