    Hi again everyone. I am travelling from Cahors to Calais at the end of Feb and need some Aires/Campsites on route. Any suggestions please?
    I was going ton have to leave early because of ill health but happily that has cleared up so our route can take in some of the places we want to see now. We are coming up from Portugal stooping at Biarritz then across to Carcassone and up to Cahors. Nothing planned after that.

    In addition to the picturesque bridge at Cahors there's also a French Resistance museum which is free entry. There's a small aire just south of the town by the river, and a nearby parking area that lets MHs in but it may be summer season only. The third Cahors aire is by a leisure centre but it's just a car park.

    Cahors to Parc Futuroscope (Jaunay-Clan) is 200 miles north. They have a huge MH parking area with service point that will only be a few Euros when they're open for business (from 7 Feb). If you've not been in the park it's quite entertaining and most of the attractions are indoor audio-visuals. You can buy an evening only ticket if you've been travelling during the day. It's very close to the autoroute and there's a big supermarket and MH friendly petrol station just round the corner.

    On the way, Sarlat-le-Caneda is worth a small detour and there's an aire on the edge of the town.

    We've done Futuroscope to Calais (about 400 miles) in a day but that's not to everyone's taste. There's always good old Honfleur (235 miles from Futuroscope) which leaves you about 3 hours short of Calais.

    In June, 1944, just after the D-Day landings, an SS division (that had been attacked by the French Resistance) entered this small village to make an example of the occupants. The 642 villagers were rounded up, massacred & the village destroyed. The village has been kept in the same state as it was on that day as a reminder of the horrors of war. The ruined village can be visited together with a Centre de la Memoire.
