    Normandy aires

    We went to Normandy last summer and only stayed on aires , all very good and most along the coast are only yards from the beach. The most we spent was 4 euros but most were free!!!

    FRANCE & the rest

    I think when you say wildcamping you mean Aires de Camping Cars they're free or small charge. We've spent 6 weeks in France and only 5 nights in a camp site (weekly laundry and tidy up). France welcomes campers and you'll met a great crowd of like minded people from all over europe in the Aires. The book Aires de Service Camping cars is very good see http://www.vicarious-shop.co.uk or try this free download site for Aires + GPS for France and the rest of europe:- http://home.arcor.de/telbus/womo-sp/ReadMe-1st_engl.html......you can print or load into your GPS.
    This kind of holiday is what campers were made for....enjoy yours .....drive safely

    :Smile: along the coasts of Cotentin (Manche) east, north and west you can find a lot a free place close to the sea but without services, take the little roads and you will find many nice place where you will be alone ! and for services (water etc..) there is some french aires in Manche (in my memory : Saint Pierre Eglise, Saint Vaast la Hougue, Montebourg, Lessay etc...)
