    so one more night to go, managed not to pay for a single aire, 9 so far, some site nights paid for though

    one more night, have not had moules yet, any recommendations of place to get some between Rouen and Calais and better still if next to a free aire

    might pay for the aire provided it doesn't involve use of CC of tokens, failed both times trying that

    any ideas?

    We are , tonight, in Pierrefond, the home of the famous Chateau, as seen in ' Merlins'. Only 9 miles from Compeigne, where the 'armistice was signed, in a railway carriage 96 years ago today.

    Staying in a car park on the edge of the small lake, with a great seafood restaurant only 100m away.

    Never eat moules if there is a "v" in the month. Indian wisdom.

    Enjoy it while you can as more and more are now payant. I guess the commune has to find money in the recession . But really still very cheap compared to the UK ! Just back from a month there and am afraid to add up my camp site fees !!

    Wissant - 30 minutes drive from Calais Port, two brasseries a short walk from the aire doing Moules Frites for 10 Euros. They're just downhill from the central crossroads in the village. Yum.

    Montreuil-sur-mer, gets it so far, mainly because it is free :D

    going shopping tomorrow before we get to where ever it might be, so only got to get up and get to chunnel for 10:00

    we can still make that tight though just you watch :LOL:

    Many thanks again, Moules consumed, aire is OK, arrived near dark so don't need pretty, need to get my head round the idea of saving camp site fees then paying 50 euros for a meal and drinks :D

    we ate at Le Vauban (y)

    But that is the idea ! Towns and villages provide you with free stop and in return you spend in the local commerce !!
