Any thoughts on Aires,Sites etc. We have 3 weeks crossing on Monday after Newark Show.
Don't know but we are heading that way on the 6th and would also be interested
Palavas les Flots.
We stayed on a grand aire on a marina. Nice walk into tourist trap town.
Village where Hollyberry used to live has a great aire on the edge of town !!! Hope she picks up on this as I have forgotten the name !!!
If you mean the region as opposed to the departement:
Avignon is worth a visit - Camping Bagatelle by the Pont Eduard Daladier worked for us. There's another site nearby. The aire looked rubbish.
Aigues Mortes (despite its name) is a lovely old walled town in the Camargue with two aires - the one by the marina is probably the quieter of the two.
Arles has no aire that I know of but is worth a bus or train ride in from somewhere else, or a day visit.
Saintes-Maries-da-la-Mere is interesting if you want a base to cycle across the salt marshes but I didn't personally rate it as a destination in itself. If you go in September you might want to think about whether or not you arrive during the Gypsy festival, as the town is a shrine for travelling folk. You can also walk on the tiled part of the church roof there, if that's what floats your boat.
Take a look at the "villages perches" in the Vaucluse and Luberon area. Rousillion, Bonnieux, Gordes, and Lacoste, ( and you thought it was a tee shirt) . They all have aires nearby. Get yourself over to the " gorges of Verdon" do the north and south rim, take your time, and stay on the aire at Moustiere st marie. Brilliant.
Many Thanks to all off you for your suggestions.Once again it proves what a great bunch Funsters are!
Yeah and from here, got em all down in the book, thanks
Anywhere - it's all wonderful..!!
