We are staying 2 nights on a campsite near Nampont St Martin, about 50 miles SW of Calais and then travelling up the A16, to Calais, to catch the Tunnel at about 12:30 on a Sunday morning

Where is the best place to stock up with wine etc before boarding? Local supermarket near the campsite or something near Calais, bearing in mind that it will be a Sunday morning

Carrefour at City Europe. There is an Aire in the car park about 100 metres from the shop entrance! We stayed there 2 nights ago along with probably a dozen or so other British vans. Well lit and only 3 miles from the tunnel by road (irony is that the tunnel trains are just over the fence next to the aire!

Good choice of 'supermarket' food. The wine choice is limited but good for general French wine at reasonable prices. We could not resist 'topping up' our already bulging garage with a few more bottles haha. Good quality wine for around €4 but of course you can pay less or a lot more.... your choice.

Go the day before then you can avoid all the rushing around in the morning

Enjoy (y)

We always use the Auchan at Boulogne Saint Martin, larger than the one at Calais, parking very easy. There is a Borne in the filling station.

Carrefour at Cite Europe and Auchan Boulogne Saint-Martin are closed on a Sunday, as is Auchan Calais.

The French still do Sundays the old-fashioned way, so your chances of a pre-boarding Sunday supermarket sweep are limited. Saturday's your last realistic opportunity, wherever you are.
