    On the way down try a stop at Tornus on the river, small but pleasant site easy walk to town. close to main routes.

    or even the center of Langres a CL type site first come first served right in side the walls of the town, get there before 3pm and park in a spot, pay when owner arrives.

    How far west are you traveling after leaving Annecy? If you plan to reach the coast then you are almost spot on in line with us at Parc Verger. Then it could be on to Cognac, Ile de Re and points north. If you are not going that far this time, never mind, come and see us next time!!!

    If you are using the autoroute, use the Aire at Beaune, easy to find and a short walk into town, a 'foodie heaven', the Aire has a large supermarket with Fuel only 100 m away. You could then get to annecy for just after Lunch

    We are going for the first 2 weeks of July, I've booked 7 nights at solitaire du lac campsite. Leaving a few days either side to travel down and back.

    We are hoping to go to Chamonix to view the glacier as we will have our sons with us, George is studying GeoPhysics.

    Go through the Alsace region on the way. Plenty of aires, no need to book, good one at Kaysersburg, get there early and spend the evening there.
