The chateau aire was rammed 1 week and a half ago too. The municipal aire had about 15 vans on it. Worth the 6 euro for a bit of space and to avoid the sales pitch. Just my opinion but the Chateau sales leaflet (delivered to the aire by a bloke on an electric scooter) looks a bit tacky, a bit like one of those restaurants with photos of the food and where a waiter accosts you in the street to entice you to come in and eat.
Damn, we had plans to go there on the 10th and 11th this month ....
Had a walk around last night and there were 40 vans crammed inside.Damn, we had plans to go there on the 10th and 11th this month ....
Drove from Abbeyville to Challans (Vendée) today and we both joked that we've never seen so many motorhomes on the move ....... Looks like we might struggle to do what we wanted to do, but will try to book the Chateau Marquis de Vauban in the morning.
Thanks, I've just rang them to try to book for sat and sun night, but was told there was no need to book. Thanks for the suggestion to arrive early !! Can you recommend any other stopovers/sites - we are traveling with 'relatives' in their van who don't usually do Aires.Had a walk around last night and there were 40 vans crammed inside.
The aire that we are on over the road was also full.
English van pulled up at 8pm and was not allowed though there was some space but computer said no.
That said by 8.30 this morning 10 vans have left already. Just don’t leave it till late afternoon.
Hi its 6. 6 euro great value
€6 is excellent value with electric and easy walking distance to citadel.
We have used CAMPING-CAR ex municipal Aires and to be honest they have been fine in fact the one at Grenade sur L’Adour was better than some sites at 3x the €12 they charge.
2017 all the aires is probably at best the equivalent of 2014 info. that's why nearly everyone uses web/apps these days. There are still lots of free aires but they tend to be in the less visited areas.Been in France a week. The free aires are being taken over by camping car with varying prices. I am sure there are still plenty of free locations though. We are using the 2017 edition of All the Aires France North second edition which details Charleville Mezieres as free. Not any longer. Still cheaper than UK though. Have a good trip. Must say though the camping car sites are immaculate. Tomorrow Sedan.
