On our 2nd MH now a AutoTrail Savannah which we're absolutely delighted with
Just looking for some advice/information.
We are presently planning an August to September holiday. When the French schools are on summer holiday are the Aires in Brittany and Normandy still generally available.
Thanks for your kind assistance

Thank you Driventemple. I did know when the school holidays occur but wanted to know if because they were on holiday would the Aires in Brittany and Normandy likely be packed

You can download the Bison futé calendar for 2023 (pdf) that shows the dates of the traffic peaks and also includes the School holidays at the bottom.

Aug 09 to date 9,000 miles!
Open - yes. Able to get on one - maybe. Just depends! :giggle: Best to check out what other aires are available in the vicinity before you set off, then of course having done that, you'll find a space. Eventually you won't bother planning 'what if' and that time, you'll cause a traffic jam when you can't get on!

Yes and No. Generally, we found last year much busy than previous years probably due to the removal of covid restrictions and more people travelling again.

We tried to arrive as early as possible to catch people leaving or find an empty spot as by 4-6pm most places were full in the allocated spaces then fun watching where people will try to park also.

Thank you all for your information and advice now booked for early September till mid October. Hopefully the lovely French kids will be all in school learning about Frexit. Ian

Also bear in mind the rugby World Cup will be on September to well into October this year. Will be a lot of fans around the areas where the matches are being played.
